Product "training" and orientation: anything surprising/interesting?

Looking for some inspiration about how to orient people to a UI in a
novel way. Of course, no training should be required, but there's some
legal reasons why we need to do it for a project. Anyone seen any cool
vids/demos/tutorial modes out there lately I could check out?

XBox 360: Project Natal. Reactions?

Just watched the Microsoft Press Conference at E3. Anyone have
thoughts on Project Natal?

I hope this extension of the XBox experience is affordable when it
hits the streets--the potential of gesture-based, motion/voice-sensing
play entering millions of homes worldwide is something to celebrate.

Persona scope

Lately I've been doing some thinking about what scope would be appropriate
for personas. Does it make sense to have "general" personas for a product
line - or are personas better used as a vehicle to communicate user research
at more specific level?

For instance, would it make sense for Microsoft or Apple to have personas of
computer users in general - or just application-specific personas?

My current thoughts are that "general" personas may be useful - but perhaps
not in their traditional application to vet features, but instead to explore
new product opportunities.

Demo Tours

Can anyone share their favorite examples of demo tours on websites?
Not looking necessarily for examples of great animation; its more towards
how they explain their product/website in the most efficient way.

A couple of my favorites are the flickr magical feature
tour<http://www.flickr.com/tour>which is a simple, wizard-like tour
and alltop
video tour <http://www.alltop.com> ("Watch the Video" button on the home
page) which has a site walkthrough with other rich content).

Thanks!
