it would be nice if my kinect xbox could chat with my skype buddy or my girlfriend on the iphone 4. the problem with the microsoft's services (except for xbox live and maybe the new zune video marketplace on xbox) is no one really uses them. integration is sorta useless if everyone is on another service.
