100 Toluu invites: Discover RSS feeds the easy way (Download Squad)

Jun 20th 2008 4:38PM I'd like an invite, too.

Flock 1.1 beta will add web Email, Picasa and more to your web browser (Download Squad)

Jan 19th 2008 12:00PM Evan - But is there any way change the source of the Live Results to a site other than the the six search engines (Amazon, ebay, craigslist, favorites, yahoo, and technorati) listed in the options?

PS - By the way, yes, performance and crashing are definitely issues, as its tendency for its memory usage to go up to 650,000. It also would be nice if someday Flock was more modular, so you could not load parts of it that you don't use. I realize that that's not a reasonable expectation for now - it's just that Flock is destined to always have a heavier footprint than Firefox because it's more feature rich, and thus it would be nice for their to be a way for users to use less of a footprint if they don't use significant features.

Have the people at have lost their minds or am I missing something here?!?!? (The Jason Calacanis Weblog)

May 29th 2007 2:24PM This has been the case for years, since ESPN360 launched in 2005. I've never been able to access it through my Time Warner access except during some "free preview" periods. And ESPN360 is not Disney's only product like this: there's also SOAPnetic, Disney Connection, and MAX, all of which you only get access to if your ISP signs up. ABC News Now is similar, except there you can sign up for an individual subscription if your isp doesn't subscribe.

There are plenty of other video-based services that sell access to ISPs; the main difference is that usually they allow individuals to subscribe at some price.

As others above have said above, they are operating these sites as if they were cable networks, and of course you can't buy cable networks a la carte.

David Markland - Note that Disney has been doing this with content for kids at Disney Connection for quite some time.

Google can I please pay you $20 a month for GMAIL!? (The Jason Calacanis Weblog)

Feb 14th 2007 2:39AM Google's Sergey Brin announced today that later this year they'll be offering the option of paying for additional gmail storage, with pricing similar to what they currently charge for photo storage (which is $25 annually for 6.25 gigabytes and $500 annually for 250 gigabytes)

The NY Times does it again... (Blog Maverick)

Dec 18th 2005 7:10PM The media has never been particularly big on accuracy. I learned this in high school when very single time the local paper did an article on my high school they got some key details wrong. There were no "good old days." I read the Times article yesterday and while I thought it made some reasonable points, it possessed holes in its logic that you could sail the QE2 through. But, as usual, I'd say that we shouldn't read malice into what can be explained by stupidity.
