And what are some of the best/coolest apps to use with the xbox, things I can show my mates and make them go oooo I want to sell my 360 to get a chiped xbox !?

Not to sure about the G-mail

But XBMC is a great app ---- Kinda turns your Xbox in to a Media Center (Plays all kinds of Video files,music, photos, and DVDs) can download info on your videos and music and tell you the weather and news feeds (must be connected to the net)

I've found Unleash X often makes people go "OOOOO" ---- Just another Dash but with video back grounds and background music!

Both can be found at the usual places

best things to have around

xbmc
unleashx (imo the best dash, besides xbmc which is just too perfect)
dvd2xbox (backup games to hdd)
dvdx2 (dongle free dvd player)
evolutonx (stable dash, outdated however extremely stable, unlocking/locking etc)
avalaunch (excellent ftp features, ftp boost etc)
config magic (good if you need eeprom info etc)
xsnes9x (the best snes emulator tongue.gif)

As for the GMail thing, I remember seeing a python script for XBMC that allows you to check POP3 email accounts. Once you get XBMC instaled you can give that a shot.

yeah there is an app, but you can do this with unleashx anyways. But i think its x-changer or x-launcher, have a look on xbins.
