Joost a little note about Internet TV

Beta to test now and improve than sign up too late and complain...

Joost™ I'd heard the buzz about Joost a while ago, but have signed up to be an official beta tester. Admittedly they sent me the invite a while ago but only got around to downloading it today.

Apparently, Joost™ is a new way of watching TV on the internet, which "uses new and established technologies to provide the best of both the internet and TV worlds".

Sounds interesting. I shall post more when I know more...

I ran into an old colleague recently who is now with O2 and he showed me their new mobile TV sets. The picture quality was fantastic, the handset quite like the Nokia NGage and I'm sure there'll be a market for it.

Personally though I'm waiting for a big wireless broadband improvement in Dublin which means I can use sites like Go Fish or YouTube and when I'm in a conversation and say (as I am too prone to doing) "Ah there's a great clip online to show that" I can show them no matter where I am...

Bring on the iPhone!

  1. hey hows Dublin.

    with joost you need to install an application and they are limited to content. take a look at viewmy.tv - free internet television

  2. I just got a data plan on my mobile. I pretty much do not need my computer anymore since I do so much with my mobile phone. The neatest thing is that I can even watch naughty movies:) It is pretty neat, it's called Mobile TV. All I do is point my phone to sexoncell.com and they have adult mobile movies in different formats like 3gp movies, symbian, pda or whatever. If you have any other cool sites, please let me know! This one, though, even has a free daily mobile movie.
