At this point, I don't really use the Google Play Books or Movies all that much.

John has been talking to me about Turn Here and their mission of using video as a medium to showcase local places and businesses for quite some time now, but it wasn't until recently that I realised my cost of living is about to increase, and therefore I need to start making money for some of this "fun stuff". One (seemingly) easy way to do that is through video. I've been saying for a long time that video is tangible and instantaneous, whereas audio takes concentration and time to absorb.

One of my top 5 blogs, Lost Remote, often has stories that deal with Orlando - like when something happens at the Tribune company, a lot of times the Sentinel will be mentioned. Apparently, they tried out re-designing the local paper's web site before doing Chicago. OK, but now here's a story about our local NBC affiliate using a Slingbox to show the weather during live TV. Who knew?
