Wall Street Journal and Ford app now available on Xbox Live

Two more apps have launched on Xbox Live today, one that might be useful, the other not-so-much. The first is an official Wall Street Journal app. WSJ Live from The Wall Street Journal will offer "up to four total hours of live video programming each business day," from the Journal, Dow Jones Newswires, Barron's, MarketWatch, SmartMoney, and AllThingsD.com. As with all other Xbox Live apps, you'll need a Gold subscription to take advantage of it.

But wait! There's more. Another app from Ford has also launched. Blatantly described by Major Nelson as "a new advertising app," this downloadable lets you actively choose to be bombarded with intrusive advertisements while using the Xbox 360 dashboard. Fun!
