look at the screen shots... they used a mac for this (at least one) plus they use a apple pro keyboard and mouse (one button... for linux? I thought they all complained about that!) to connect to the XBOX controller connections (they are USB--just different connectors, so they spliced them in).
I thought that was cool.
(someone said it first... stupid IE not refreshing the page... )
