If you ever have questions about XBOX and have a twitter account message @XBOXSupport
GTZ asked them how do you "pin"? 15 min later we received a reply:

Create a pin

There are several ways to pin an app, game, or webpage to your My Pins list. One easy way is to create a pin directly from your Recent list. Here’s how:
  1. From Xbox Home, select Recent.
  2. Highlight an item you want to pin and press X to view Details.
  3. Select Pin to Home.
You can create a pin from anywhere you can access content Details or Overview, such as My Apps or My Games.
You can also pin a link to a specific webpage in Internet Explorer. Here’s how:
  1. Go to Apps and select My Apps.
  2. Start Internet Explorer.
  3. Press Y to open the Web Hub. Enter a website address, and then select Done.
  4. Press Y again and select the Favorites icon on the address bar.
This saves the webpage to your favorites list. All Internet Explorer favorites are available in My Pins from Xbox Home.
