Windows The Verge has a learned a few interesting things about Google deprecating EAS and how this will affect Windows Phone users. As it turns out, Google informed Microsoft it was planning to remove EAS in the summer of last year, but without giving a firm date. Microsoft has been trying to get a six-month extension from Google, but so far with no luck. In the meantime, Microsoft is also working on adding CardDAV and CalDAV support to Windows Phone - so yay open standards.

XBox 360 GPU is way better than the PS3 one. The PS3 can make for it because of the clever tricks the system allows (when going down to the metal) and because of the extra CPU muscle.

Direct X implementation in the XBox360 is quite close to the metal as well. As it has some "extras". It is also easier to optimize code written for a specific implementation of a given API.

BTW, it is a well known fact that in Windows-land drivers get adapted to the "important" games, even going to the point to detect the game that is being run and use for it a driver tuned for that game (maybe even hardcoding "optimizations" that work in that game but couldn't go to a generic driver as they deviate from the API behavior).
