    Hi, I just noticed this pic from the Xbox One reveal. It shows notifications as a tile with a counter on it. What was intriguing is the symbol on the tile. Its the same one that's in our app list.

    My question is, do you think Microsoft would implement notications this way?

    That's interesting. Raises the question whether MS are implementing a global notifications centre across all devices.

    I never thought about the possibility of global notifications, but that ties in really good with the "all in one" theme.
    The One knows you're at home watching tv and the notifications would come all through Xbox, supposedly. That would be great, a true central place.

    I really hope not, I'm kinda sick of having to put a tile on my screen for every little thing. I love minimalism and that kinda cuts away when I place so many tiles on my home for simple things. I just love to have all my interests and accounts and that's it.
