I used to watch TV while I gamed a few years ago with two tvs. This is going to be one of my laziest things ever. >>

It's a cool feature but I don't see snap being all to useful on a console.

For browsing a phone/tablet will be more convenient and faster.
For music playing wouldn't the point be to have it run in the background and won't it be easier to just say "xbox next track" (which will be very useful)?
Can't see how this will be used when actually playing a game since you get less screen estate for something your barely putting any attention into (and with a controller can barely work).

I'm not knocking the snap feature, it might be genuinely useful for some things like skype and....and...and...stuff. In all honestly snap is just better off on the PC where you have the control and fluidity to multi-task easily and swiftly and would have preferred if there where no resources being spent on snap to better leave more room for developers and their games.

Thats just my 0.00 cents

I think snap is great when your waiting for a game to start or matchmaking. Playing some geometry wars or watching some YouTube videos is a great feature. It seems fast so going in and out of snap features seems easy enough to dismiss it when the game actually starts.

Me: Guys, why aren't you spawning... or doing anything at all?
Team: Wait, this is the best part!
Game: You've lost the lead!
Me: *bleep* you guys.

You just know it's gonna happen.
