Moki.tv is a killer companion to online video services

With all the streaming, on-demand video sites available to choose from nowadays, a site like freshly-launched Moki.tv can be a very handy resource to file in your bookmarks. Moki bills itself as the ultimate guide to online entertainment, and it's certainly one of the best of its breed. A number of popular video services are supported, including iTunes, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and Comcast's...

'Apple just f***** over online music subs for the iPhone' -- Last.fm co-founder on Apple's 30% cut

Speaking rather frankly on IRC, Last.fm's co-founder Richard Jones has condemned Apple's move to grab 30% of content-based subscription fees: "Apple just f***** over online music subs for the iPhone." Jones' apoplectic outburst is just one of many, too. Rhapsody yesterday said it won't bow to Apple's subscription policy, and CEO of on-demand music streamer we7, speaking to paidContent, thinks...

Rdio reveals version 1.0 of iPhone app, slicker, faster, better than Spotify

Rdio, the subscription-only music-on-demand service, has massively overhauled its iPhone, iPad and iPod app. Initial response seems positive: the previous version of the app surfed around the 2 1/2-star mark on iTunes, and the new one is already racking up plenty of 5-star reviews. It's still only available in North America, incidentally. The new interface is beautiful (and boy does it make the...

Inside the new music streaming service Rdio, quick review and gallery

Last week news broke of Rdio, the new brainchild of the Kazaa and Skype creators. Everyone was very briefly elated until they found out a) it's USA-only, and b) it's still in the middle of private beta testing. Still, thanks to the kindness of a Download Squad reader, and some network hacking (I live in the UK), I can now tell you all about Rdio! If you prefer pictures, there's a high-resolution...

Valve finally unveils an overhauled UI for Steam, and it's awesome

I remember when Valve first revealed Steam back in 2003. No one quite knew what to make of it -- was this just another flash in the pan, or was Valve onto the next great thing? There was one thing that everyone could agree on though: it was slower than a dopefiend on horse tranquilizers. Steam's 'funky' UI with its green bits and rounded corners lagged. To this day, I don't know if Steam improved...

YouTube Video Speed History -- check your video streaming speed!

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you YouTube 'My Speed'. Don't all click it at once. OK, by now now you've all clicked it. The silence is deafening. This is definitely one of those 'ooh, cool... but... er... so?' things. Well I say that, but I know there's a whole bunch of computer enthusiasts out there that simply love to compare their performance against other people. YouTube says that it...

Microsoft (attempts) to challenge Steam with new game download service

It's called Games on Demand (not quite as punchy as 'Steam'), and it's now part of the Games for Windows LIVE platform. While the list of big-name games available at launch is short -- Resident Evil 5 is the only stand-out title -- there is the usual slew of cheap-and-cheerful titles available, like the wonderful World of Goo (as reviewed in our Holiday Gift Guide). Games on Demand will...

Netflix to introduce streaming-only service -- but not in the US

Netflix have announced their intention to launch a streaming-only video option beginning in the second half of 2010. Currently the only way to stream Netflix movies is to sign up for the DVD-rental-by-mail service. But the new web-only option will only be available outside the US. Why make a streaming service Netflix' first offering outside the US? 'Tricky' postal systems, says CEO Reed...

Lala to launch free music on demand service

Music website Lala plans to launch a new music on demand service soon. While online radio sites like Pandora or Last.fm let provide a stream of audio tailored to your tastes, Lala's service will let you click on an individual song and listen to it. Currently that's only something you can do with subscription services like Rhapsody. There's just one problem. It costs money to stream audio on...

What's the meaning behind Joost's IndyCar sponsorship?

Joost seems to be at the forefront of an explosion into public realm care of one of the worlds top ad locations, IndyCar. What does this mean? Is Joost really ready to go mainstream? If anything they just stepped up their marketing efforts this past weekend with a 7th place finish. Joost -- the so-far leading IPtv application -- is getting pretty big in the "tech" world, with thousands of users...
