    At some point or another in our lives, we've all sought out some way to become famous. Whether we were motivated by monetary dreams to the simple love of attention or anything in between, fame is one of those things that so many seek out yet fall short of. For good reason too. It's hard getting noticed and appealing to a wide group of people. So how do you get your foot in the door? A new site 15toFame looks to be a new tool in the tech minded individuals of the coming decade. The approa...
  • YouTube to begin streaming full TV episodes for $1.99 a piece?

    Are you a fancier of movie rentals or simply rentals in general? Some people like constant change. For those individuals, renting items and services for short periods of time and constantly switching things up is the way to go -- for them anyway. I myself am more of a buy/rent-to-own kind of person. iTunes started dipping it's toes in the streaming/rental program recently giving users $1.99 access to individual TV episodes that could be streamed and stored locally on their hard drives. For ...
  • YouTube getting all pissy — yanking API rights from 3rd party hardware/services.

    Just when you thought YouTube was becoming this all knowing all loving *now HD* online video giant, they go and pull some stupid crap like revoking the rights of countless 3rd party hardware and service partners by making their API's off limits. Specifically, the new YouTube ToS prohibit anyone from using YouTube API's if they are "created for use on television set top boxes, television game consoles, or video screens packaged and marketed as television sets". Wow, asshole move there isn't it?...
  • Reminder: U2 live streaming their concert tonight on YouTube

    Music preference is a highly subjective topic. People have varying tastes music for a variety of reasons. U2 has stood the test of time in the music scene. While not everyone's favorite band, U2 has shown that they have what it takes to span the generations. To a digital nerd like me, I enjoy their music, though that's not why I'm writing this. Tonight at 8:30pm PST (11:30pm EST) U2 will stream their entire concert, live from the Rose Bowl. Streaming live performances are nothing new mind ...
  • UK YouTubers soon to get full length Channel 4 videos.

    While here in the U.S., labels and content owners are just getting around to actually using YouTube instead of banning artists' videos and songs from it (ok, so a few stateside have actually taken advantage of YouTube), our neighbors across the pond in the UK are a few steps ahead of us. In what can be seen a extraordinarily large step forward for big media, Channel 4, a popular network in the UK is reported to be this close from signing a deal with YouTube. What's the big deal? Only that Cha...
  • Thinking about taking your new 5th gen iPod Nano to the gym? Life Time Fitness asks you think again.
    by Mike
    Posted September 23rd, 2009 at 9:06 am
    In the age of paranoia and fear mongering, someone always has to be afraid of something, banning something, and generally introducing more pain and hassle into our lives then their has to be. Case in point: Life Time Fitness, a major U.S. gym chain has banned the new iPod Nano's from being used in 84 of their gyms spanning 19 states because of the inherent danger that someone could be secretly recording you. *Gasps* *Zoinks* While the thought is creepy and weirds me out, such a ban won't ...
  • YouTube app/icon getting pushed to Verizon Storm owners

    Have a thing for skateboarding dogs, fart lighting frat boys, and zany cats? YouTube has long been your go to haven for such videos. BlackBerry Storm owners on Verizon's network while able to manually download the YouTube app for sometime will now be greeted by a new YouTube icon on their desktop giving them a friendly reminder. The first time you click on the link you'll notice that it is merely a shortcut to download the actual app. After which the "icon" will launch an actual app. If yo...
  • Warner music wants you to hate them
    by Mike
    Posted July 16th, 2009 at 7:03 am
    The music and copyright industry is so backwards, antiquated, and completley blind that a major fallout from the general popular is all but certain in the nearer future. While stories of stupid rulings on lawsuits centering around music copyrights is nothing new, a new action taken by Warner Music shows just how stupid these people that run these "organizations" really are. Time and time again we see that these mobs have absolutely no idea what copyright actually entitles them to as they abu...
  • For every minute that passes, YouTube gains 1,200
    by Mike
    Posted May 21st, 2009 at 8:41 am
    YouTube, a Time Magazine proclaimed "Top 100" tech company failure is apparently doing something right. "How so" you ask? **Interesting tidbit** According to the YouTube Blog, with every passing minute comes an increase of over 20 hours of video being uploaded onto YouTube. 20 hours for every minute! That's quite a bit more than back in '07 the numbers were more like 6 hours for every minute and less than the claimed 24 hours for every minute that YouTube claims will be reached very soon. ...
  • Is posting “home footage” of a sporting event illegal?
    by Mike
    Posted April 24th, 2009 at 10:54 am
    I hope to god not.  If so, I sould/would have been in jail quite a while ago.  I myself in the few short years that I have had a phone with video capability have shared countless numbers of videos I shot at various professional sporting events.  To any normal American  here in the States, we rightly assume that since we were allowed to take our phones in to the venue, and take short clips of the events, we can do pretty much whatever we want with said clips because we own them.  Apparen...
  • A world without YouTube?
    by Mike
    Posted April 9th, 2009 at 8:18 am
    When one thinks of an "over night success" or a company or product that has become so big, so ingrained in our everyday lives that it begins to be used as a verb, you almost take for granted said service.  The service I'm talking about is YouTube.  While it has only been around a few short years,  YouTube has gone from a niche site on the web to an online video powerhouse with millions upon million of users and videos.  What would happen if all of a sudden that resource was gone? (mo...
  • Cellphones/technology making a comeback in public schools?
    by Mike
    Posted April 8th, 2009 at 9:17 am
    It is no secret that schools for lack of a better word *hate* technology in the sense that schools across the U.S. are constantly fighting a war against electronics in school.  Whether it be cellphones, mp3 players, laptops, etc, they are trying to "relaim" the classroom against the creep of the digital world into an enviorment that has remained the same for decades without any real change.  So it comes as quite a surprise that Beaufort High School, located in Beaufront, South Carolina is...
