Gamers looking to be among the first to get their hands on an X-box 360 controller at Wal-Mart demo kiosks can still do it, but they won’t actually be controlling anything.
Xbox 360 kiosks placed in Wal-Mart stores across the country have been shut off, said a Microsoft spokesperson contacted this afternoon. The reason, according to Microsoft, is due to the console causing interference with Wal-Mart’s wireless “hand scanner” inventory system. Microsoft has acknowledged the problem as being “minor” and says a software solution is in the works to correct it.

Wednesday was a happy day for producers of Fox’s “Prison Break” and “American Dad,” NBC’s “The Office” and USA Network’s “The 4400.”
All four shows have earned pickup orders from their respective networks.
Fox ordered nine episodes each of taut drama “Prison Break,” which led the charge for network this season, and animated comedy “Dad,” bringing their complement to a full season’s worth of 22 episodes.
“Prison Break” got off to a strong start in its preseason August 29 launch and in recent weeks has held its own in the 9 p.m. Monday slot as Fox’s rivals have rolled out their new Monday programs.
“American Dad” bowed in May behind Fox’s relaunch of “Family Guy” in the Sunday 9-10 p.m. hour. “Dad,” from “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane, has not been as big a Nielsen hit as “Family Guy” or “The Simpsons,” but it has helped put Fox back in the game with the younger set on a competitive night.
NBC confirmed it has given the green light to produce seven additional episodes of “The Office,” bringing the total for the offbeat comedy’s sophomore year to 13 episodes.
USA signed up for a second 13-episode season of the Emmy-nominated “4400,” a sci-fi saga about the reappearance of 4,400 people who were previously reported missing or dead but suddenly returned to Earth with mysterious powers.

Marking its biggest step into the wireless communications market to date, Google said on Friday it has proposed to provide free wireless Internet services across the city of San Francisco.
The Web search company said it has responded to a request for information by the City of San Francisco to test local Internet services via Wi-Fi, the short-range wireless technology built into most new laptop computers.
“Google has submitted a proposal to offer free, wireless Internet access (Wi-Fi) to the entire city of San Francisco,” Google said in a statement.
The Wi-Fi access could be funded through online advertising, a Google spokesman said.
The service aims to test a range of new services and applications around the hilly city, which is home to more than 700,000 residents.
