Dashboard, that is. You’ve already seen the new 360 dashboard right here and thousands of you have tried its flatter, faster interface for yourselves , but if you’ve missed out, it’s looking like your Halloween candy bag may include a full-scale rollout. Live subscribers are getting the above message in their inboxes right now, indicating that November 1st will bring a service update of some sort, after which point “You will notice a change to the layout of the LIVE Dashboard, a new color scheme, and new fonts being used.” That doesn’t necessarily sound like a cornucopia of Netflix Search, ESPN, Kinect and Zune Music to us, but it’s not like you have a choice — it’s mandatory, and you’ll lose all Live functionality unless you comply. We for one welcome our new software overlords
