image thumb11 Internet TV Is Veoh The Perfect Place For Fans?

Veoh is a very interesting Internet TV site; it not only provides a huge selection of TV shows or videos but also streams some videos directly from other Internet TV sites such as Hulu. This is quite a good strategy as it allows Veoh to expand its library and that too without having to store the videos. What more does a site need than this?

The thing that is quite frustrating about Veoh, which is worth mentioning, is the fact that the content available on the site is quite cluttered. Compared to other sites, the clips and videos available on Veoh are often misleading and irrelevant since the clips are mixed with the full episodes that you are looking for.  The reason for all this cluttering is that many clips and videos are submitted by the users, so when you search for a specific video you will come across the search result showing many irrelevant videos and user content that is of no interest to you. Due to these unprofessional and user-submitted clips, the site often looks amateur when you are searching for professional TV shows. Read More »

Pod2g announced a short while back about what has been happening recently amongst the developers. Apparently Pod2g has been working together with Onaj and p0sixninja on an untethered jailbreak for the iOS 4.2.1. The problem is the video shared doesn’t really demonstrate if this is untethered jailbreak is based on the bootrom exploit or is userland based.

image thumb82 Facebook Surpasses Yahoo As Number 2 Video Site, YouTube Still Way Ahead

Numbers always add more weight to your claims than just saying you are the leader in a certain category. I mean you can be a leader amongst losers around you? But lets not make this a lecture of some sort and come to the comScore’s monthly report for August which reveals stats on online video data in the US.

A whopping 178 million people watched online video content at an average 14.3 hours per viewer. Though the total number has remained unchanged and Google sites still lead with a massive 146 million unique viewers it gives me great joy to share Facebook climbing to number two. It had over 58 million unique viewers compared to Yahoo which it surpassed with 53 million plus viewers. Facebook rightly deserves this and Yahoo shouldn’t even be there at all. Honestly I didn’t ever knew that Yahoo even had a video site!

image thumb18 Speed Test: iPhone 3G Running On iOS 4 And iOS 4.1

Performance is a top priority for any device and Apple has proven it beats many when it comes to the smartphone arena with its iPhone. I hate to say it being an Android fan but that’s the truth in many cases. Both the hardware and the software play an equally important role when it comes to the overall performance of the device. Apple released the iOS 4.1 with promises from Steve Jobs that the latest version would resolve many issues, primarily for the iPhone 3G users running on the iOS4.

Putting the software part to test, Lifehacker [thanks] shared a video on performance of the the iPhone 3G on the iOS 4 and the iOS 4.1 comparison. The video doesn’t really show a massive difference in performance but it some cases the difference is significant, especially when loading the maps. On others, like Photos, browsing on Safari, the speed difference is marginal and not really that great to make you drool over update. The winning feature with the iOS 4.1 is definitely going to be the fixes for other issues that many iPhone 3G users have complained about.

They might have videos on the worst storms or the most memorable moments, or better still those about big companies and their tales. Not Simon Klose though. The documentary filmmaker claims to have more than 200 hours of unedited footage, which he plans to turn into a full length feature by the name of, The Pirate Bay: Away from Keyboard.
