Hulu: (better) TV Online

Don't yet know Hulu?

It's an online TV service; but the service is all in the website format...beacuse it's free. Hulu is a spuremely clean, easy to navigate, content rich site for online TV & movies. ALL of the NBC & FOX content they still have the rights for is there...and frankly, that's a load of content.

But you'll have to check it out when your cable goes on the fritz, or at the office when you're doing, um, research.

ome of what I like about Hulu:
  • Free
  • Very good quality player (better than YouTube)
  • Amazing variety in selection
  • Current events/News i.e. Presidential/VP Debates
  • Significantly Fewer commercials than regular TV
  • Movies, News, Reality TV, & loads more
Content includes:
  • The Daily Show
  • The Tonight Show
  • The Simpons
  • The Family Guy
  • Fringe
  • Heroes
  • House
  • 30 Rock
  • Prison Break
  • The Office
  • Arrested Development
  • Men in Black
  • The Scorpion King
  • Liar, Liar
  • Jumanji
  • Lost in Translation
  • Sleepless in Seattle
  • Some Like It Hot
So if you're still reading this, get over to  
Or are you not a TV/Movie, News fan?

12Seconds: Here's to keepin it Pithy

A Kiss on

I'll "study" this deal more closely over the next week or so and report back to you...but 12Seconds is a share site where you can post 12 sec. video pieces to share...duh. But it is so supremely easy, fast and may I say a FABULOUS addition to Social Media. More Soon!

Google Chrome

It is essential that I add a bit of technology for Everyman/Everywoman to this blog.  I will also include reviews and comments I find so that you know this is not just my own the point of supporting the average techno-phobe AND techno-phile at home and work.  

So the latest (and I mean this month) tech thing you need is Google Chrome:  It is Google's new Web Browser.  Here are my favorite things about it:

  • It is Free.
  • It is SUPER easy & fast to download and use immediately.  
  • The Tabs are very cool, easy to use and every NEW tab opens a set of thumbnails of your MOST visited sites.
  • All your bookmarks will be saved into the NEw Google Chrome.  AND there is an incognito mode if you don't want these saved.
  • Independent Tabs: IF something crashes your internet...only the open tab will crash...the reat will stay open, intact!
I could go on, but you'll have to see it in action.  
I have had it for a on both my work & home computers.  Makes IE & Firefox look pretty outdated.

Other reviews & Write Ups:

Now tell me what YOU think.
