Episode 99.5: Nano-chrome-atic!

On this weeks show I go indepth about why Google Chrome isn't just a rip off browser, but a innovative browser that really has a market for people. Funny terms and conditions in those EULA's and T&C's you ignore, as well as Quake live information. Oh, and sony messed up again - suprise!

Tip(s!) of the week:
A youtube alternative
A higher quality version of youtube, with the added bonus of being able to download the source material - a good other way to give people an option to be able to keep your movie, in an age where people can't be bothered to use a direct download link alone

Webcam enhancer
No, its not dodgy, its just a overlay that can be used to place things such as live data and scrolling rss feeds in a webcam or live video feed - clever!

Video of the week:
Microsoft's Vista campaign - oh my
Part of the mega big 300 million dollar campaign, the results have been...
