NBC to Offer Downloads of Its Shows

NBC makes many of its popular shows available online in streaming media, which means that fans can watch episodes on their computers. Under the new NBC service, called NBC Direct, consumers will be able to download, for no fee, NBC programs like “Heroes,” “The Office” and “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” on the night that they are broadcast and keep them for seven days. They would also be able to subscribe to shows, guaranteeing delivery each week.

But the files, which would be downloaded overnight to home computers, would contain commercials that viewers would not be able to skip through. And the file would not be transferable to a disk or to another computer.

The files would degrade after the seven-day period and be unwatchable. “Kind of like ‘Mission: Impossible,’ only I don’t think there would be any explosion and smoke,” Mr. Gaspin said.

Emphasis added by me. Original stupidity by the The Suits.

Fake Fake Steve Jobs gets it in one:

Roll out all the different systems that don’t work together. Bring on all the different kinds of software, none of which will work as well as iTunes. Bring on a zillion different user interfaces, a zillion accounts you need to set up, a zillion new usernames and passwords and a list of which services can work on which devices in which format. Right.

Yeah. I just lovvvved downloading that piece of shit Amazon Unbox software to watch Journeyman.

Asus Eee: My Head Is Now Spinning!

September 20, 2007

Asustek’s Eee PC will powered by Menlow – report [update: direct link updated]

Asustek caused a stir by showing off a prototype Eee PC at Computex earlier this year. It failed to mention then that it was miles away from production though the Asus boss did get excited and draw applause from the crowd when he said it’d cost $199.

Emphasis added by me.

Whaaaaat? It’s supposed to be on sale within weeks from today!

The report says Asus aims to ship 3-5 million Eee PCs in 2008. It is also said to be preparing a nine-inch model to add to the seven and eight-inch models already announced.

Emphasis added by me.

Eight inch?!!? When did this happen?!

These reports that contradict one another and spit out all these different specs are driving me mad. I wish Asus would spit out some solid information of its own on its own damned websites!

mikecane.wordpress.com traffic rank in other countries:

blogrankb.jpg

I was at some site that had a link in its to-me-foreign language that turned out to lead to its Alexa stats. I put in my URL and found out just how worthless Alexa is. It gives this blog a daily per-page view that is just out and out bullshit. I can see what people view on my Dashboard and the numbers don’t jibe with Alexa.

Anyway, I thought the above chart was hugely funny. What, New Zealand has so few sites or blogs?!


Asus Eee: Even On Mars?!!?

Hell, if that ain’t Martian…

Oh wait.

OK, to get Sirius — ahem — serious. Is Asus planning a massive global drop shipment of the Eee? I’m seeing it turn up on blogs in country after country. How many of these suckers do they plan to crank out?

I just hope it will all go like the iPhone introduction: Ample supplies, no shortages.

Make everyone happy. (Well, except for the ebay gougers!)

Gallery: Classmate PC and Asus Eee at IDF

This is the Asus Eee laptop. The model shown has a 7-inch LCD screen and it’s running a fast booting version of Linux. Prices range from $200 to $330 and a basic model with 7-inch display and Wireless LAN capability is $230. Higher-end models will have 9-inch displays.

Whaaaat? What’s this $330 as top price? High-end with nine-inch displays?

Is there new information Asus has not yet widely disseminated?

Anyway, check out the pics. Apparently, the ZD photog didn’t (or wasn’t permitted to) use flash. All are fugly yellow-tinged.
