At its E3 press conference today in Los Angeles, Microsoft had a gaggle of announcements, including live TV, YouTube content, and Bing coming to the Xbox--and voice control to command it all. That means less time fiddling around with a controller. "You no longer have to navigate through the menus to find content," said Mark Whitten, head of Xbox Live. Voice control is also coming to some games.

Another fancy new Kinect feature, Finger Tracking, lets you create a background, and then, with your fingers, paint in 3D around images of yourself. It's part of Kinect Fun Labs, which allows players to make interactive toys and create art using the Kinect's camera.

Kids should be happy with today's announcements. With the Xbox exclusive Disneyland Adventures, they can now take a virtual spin on Disneyland "rides" via the Kinect (arms out to fly through the Peter Pan ride) and virtually hug their favorite characters. Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster lets them dance alongside colorful creatures.
