Good morning from Heathrow Airport outside of London.

Heading home today…

My wife arrived in London on Saturday morning, so I took a rare Sunday off so we could spend the day seeing some sites, including a few (like the Shard) which have appeared since our last visit. Today, I’m flying home to Boston, so connectivity—and possibilities for work—will be limited.

Xbox 360 turns 10

10 years ago yesterday, Microsoft released the Xbox 360, which I feel is its most successful video game console when you look at it in the context of the day. (Microsoft claims the Xbox One is selling faster at this point in its history than did the 360, but the Xbox 360 outdueled the PS3 for several years, whereas the Xbox One is getting destroyed by the PS4.) Speaking of which, yesterday was the second anniversary of the Xbox One.

Microsoft: App gap? What app gap?

Microsoft has released a new app for Android called AppComparison that will help users on that rival platform switch to … yes, really … Windows phone.

From the release notes:

Are you considering changing your Android device to Windows Phone? AppComparison identifies your favorite Android apps and matches them with apps available from the Microsoft Store. The application also introduces you to some of the most popular Windows Phone applications.

I know. It’s not even a joke.

More from Dublin airport if I can get online…
