Putting a strong emphasis on things that aren’t video games, Microsoft debuted the new Xbox One this afternoon. Don’t get us wrong, the games look sick (at least the EA Sports ones they showed off along with a few others), but the way the device lets you interact is really awesome. Power the unit up by simply saying, “Xbox on,” then talk to it to watch live TV, change channels, preview what’s on different networks, and use Windows 8’s Snap Mode to run an app on the side of the screen while you’re watching a movie, TV, or playing a game. Kinect is all redone with far more precise motion detection. There will be exclusive content (starting with a Halo series) and Xbox Live is getting a huge bump going from 15,000 servers to 300,000 so your content can be stored and accessed from the cloud all the time. It’s insane all-in-one entertainment and will be released later this year. More info to follow at E3 in a few weeks.

For those who find attention-grabbing brogues and ornate details a bit too flashy but who still want a pair of attractive, well-made dress shoes, The Martin Wholecut is the answer. Handmade in Italy out of a single piece of Italian calfskin leather, the rich, supple dress shoes feel exceedingly comfortable and look sleek without being over the top. Each is outfitted with a leather lining, a matching leather sole, and is even painted by hand. Plus, thanks to the Blake construction, The Martin Wholecut Oxfords feel light and flexible.
