The 404 1,076: Where you don't know you're beautiful (podcast)

Leaked from today's 404 episode: Microsoft's secret four-year Xbox 720 road map leaked onto the Web, using Web browsing idiosyncrasies to gauge depression, CBS green lights a Draw Something game show pilot, and Jeff sees a movie he actually liked!

Hope you're sitting down for this: Jeff actually has positive words about a movie he saw this weekend! Without giving away the surprise, suffice it to say that Jeff's complaints about the lack of creativity in film and his disgust with the movie-going experience disappeared for two hours on Friday.

In advance of Microsoft's mysterious press event today , we'll speculate what's in store for the software giant and how it could fit into the 56-page road map document that leaked over the weekend.

Could your Web surfing habits warn you about early signs of depression? A study publishing soon in the IEEE Technology and Society Magazine found a correlation between depression and the amount of activity on one's social networking profiles, which suggests that FOMO may be more of a serious affliction than we previously assumed.

Finally, CBS just commissioned a reality pilot for a new celebrity talk show based on the hugely successful OMGPOP game "Draw Something." Unfortunately, with hardly anyone still playing that game now, we have our reservations about its success.
