Cory has been working on a program called XBox Friends. It's a .NET application that gives you statuses of your XBox Live friends. It's a cool idea; unfortunately, Cory's been relegated to parsing the HTML files to glean all of this information. I know there will be improvements in XBox Live coming shortly, but I'm hoping Microsoft can expose the XBox Live information via web services so writing XBox Live-related clients will be much easier. I have my own Amazon.com program that I use to check the sales on the books I've written - it would be way cool to be able to do the same thing for XBox Live.
