Joost invitations available

26 באפריל 2007

My Joost account is up and working. I've only had it a week or so and not much time to play with it. For those who are unfamiliar with Joost, it's an online TV service with a client component conceptually similar to Media Center. (e.g you browse through channels etc.) I have not found a way to save content and that might be impossible. ??? The video seems to be of varying quality, but it is good enough to watch without getting annoyed.Anyhow, for me the biggest problem is that I can't find anything worth watching. That said, today I...

Going convertible…

11 באפריל 2007
