I'm pretty disappointed the latest dashboard update and iPhone app didn't really do anything to make organising games easier beyond setting beacons. You don't get notifications for new messages and beacons don't target individual people.
Anyway, here's an idea for a menubar app that could possibly deal with what data Xbox.com currently gives you. I wouldn't want a fullscreen app dedicated to Live, but if the menubar icon changed from time to time it'd let me keep tabs with incoming messages and people that are popping on.
I don't know about you guys, but I don't have a Facebook/Twitter/Phone Number for everyone I play games with - some of them are just randomers I met up and added to my friends list. This is just a means to make playing together easier.

This is awesome, I wish it was real!
Awesome idea Glenn! I am not sure how much data you can get from Microsoft servers (live player status?) but I would love to use it myself!
@Fabio If I am not mistaken, there used to be an app for Mac called "Friendz" which connected through some sort of Xbox Live API. It allowed you to check friend statuses, send messages, and edit your profile. Which makes this seem do-able.
nice n clean.
@Jonathan & @Fabio: An interesting link @jamiebicknell sent me last night was that MyGamerCard had shut down because of the lack of support provided by Microsoft thesedays.
He specifically mentions the fact everyone uses screen scraping to get more info than Microsoft is usually willing to give. I guess it'd be the only way to viably do something like this idea, and it might require more scrape requests than your usual TrueAchievements type of service.

Very nice. Gaming dashboards can use all the help they can get. Haha!
