Videos on the Wii, care of StumbleUpon
StumbleUpon is a great way of discovering new sites that are out there on the web. I don't use it as often as I should, unfortunately, but I can see that changing with the recent innovations coming out of their fine web establishment. Basically how StumbleUpon works is that visitors to a site rank it by giving the content a thumbs up or down. When you stumble, you will only see pages that your friends or like minded stumblers have recommended, thus connecting you to content that you might never have come across. Now StumbleUpon brings this to their new video product that hooks up owners of Nintendo Wii's to videos that they can watch on their gaming devices. The new stumble.tv has been specially re-designed and set to launch with Wii's Opera browser in mind, making it easy for users to navigate through the video search, channel menus, and the ability to rate and recommend videos on their consoles.
In other StumbleUpon video news, there is a rumor that Stumble Video could be unleashed on other mobile devices in the near future. Look out for WiiAim as well, a way to chat to your AIM buddy list on your console.
