Rebelgecko writes "It turns out the iPhone's mystery app is a custom Youtube viewer. The iPhone will play Youtube's videos using the H.264 codec for higher quality. From the look of it it will take advantage of the iPhone's screen design and touch capabilities much more than watching videos in the iPhone's version of Safari would. The videos can be streamed via a Wi-Fi connection or the EDGE network. Starting today the AppleTV will also play Youtube videos." Link to Original Source top
Rebelgecko writes "The new AppleTV model will have a 160GB harddrive and will cost $399. Starting in June a few thousand Youtube videos will be available, and by (Northen Hemisphere's) fall Youtube's entire catalog will be available. According to CEO Steve Jobs, it is "really, really, fun."" top

Rebelgecko writes "Today, Google has introduced their new TiSp. Though unfortunately it is currently Windows only, Mac and Linux support is currently in the works. Three speeds are offered: The Trickle, Number 2, and the Royal Flush. While the Number 2 and Royal Flush are not free ($9.95 and $24.95, respectively), the "Trickle" is entirely advertisement supported. Signal is guaranteed in the bathroom which TiSP is installed in. Even more revolutionary, TiSP will be heavily integrated with Google Checkout. Any packages purchased with Google Checkout can be sent directly to your bathroom! Most of the comments on their help forum seem positive, though there seem to be occassional networking issues. It is unknown whether it assigns I.P.'s freely or not."
