360 Betas: “Xbox Live Labs” and “Xbox Dashboard” showing on Gamercards

If you visit Major Nelson’s blog, you’ll see some unique icons appearing on his Gamercard as of late: Xbox Dashboard and Xbox Live Labs.

These simply appear to be internal Betas and may or may not see the light of day when the Spring Update comes. There is no box art or achievements for Xbox Dashboard. A placeholder box art for Xbox Live Labs shows, suggesting Kinect support. There’s a broken link to the “game” on the Marketplace here.
