Useful, But Somehow Wrong

So, I'm almost ready to join that whole home Internet revolution malarky. Mostly by getting my X-Box on-line in the next few weeks. I've already been allowed to try it at work, so I am now the proud owner of the latest Sam & Max game (and it's great), and I like the idea of just downloading things to my 'Box from my couch rather than that pesky Amazon/walking to the shops thing.

One thing I found out straight away is that the console also uploads stuff, so any time I want I can check out my gamer achievements whenever I want. I'm not entirely sure why I find this slightly unnerving, but I suppose always being able to know whether or not I've done the "Absolute Power is Kind of Neat" achievement on Civilization Revolutions is what the Internet was built for.
