    Is the term "toast notification" something that is specific to Windows 8?

    Doesn't the 360 have Toast Notifications now?

    No, when I put 2 slices of bread in my toaster oven, I get a toast notification when the bread is properly browned.

    On a seriously note, toast notifications are not WP8/win 8 specific.

    How familiar are you with Win 8/RT? I think it'll be similar execution where you get this notification sliding from the top right corner. Clicking/tapping it will take you to the app that sent the toast notification or some other similar functionality.

    Quite similar to those on WP8 where you get the bar on the top of the screen that you can either slide away or tap open whatever sent the toast notification.
