Microsoft’s Soapbox to Compete with Google’s YouTube

Microsoft’s Soapbox to Compete with Google’s YouTube

Microsoft has just opened up their Soapbox website for public beta testing. Soapbox will allow people to upload videos to the internet in almost all kinds of digital formats. Google has the most popular video upload site, YouTube, which they purchased for 1.65 billion dollars this past fall.

What might make Microsoft’s Soapbox better? It could gain popularity for being able to watch a video on the same screen as you are browsing for another video. YouTube does not have this feature yet.

Because it is still in beta there should still be some issue to be worked out. This website will give you another place to distribute your homespun videos, possibly gaining extra viewers from a new website with a little less competition.

(Best Syndication) A company in Connecticut says they have a developed a system of converting garbage into energy. The machine is similar to what Dr. Emmett Brown (played by Christopher Lloyd) in “Back to the Future” used to power his car, except bigger.

The Startech Environmental Corporation’s solution may help solve two problems – trash collecting in landfills and our energy problem. The process does not involve burning the garbage, but uses plasma energy to break the molecular bonds of the material without producing any pollution. The bi-products include various non-hazardous substances ready for “commercial use”.

Microsoft Vista Hits The Shelves But Is It Worth The Upgrade?  Comparison - Ultimate Version Has Everything

Windows Vista

(Best Syndication) Now that millions of users have broadband access to the Internet, Microsoft has introduced what they are calling their all-in-one entertainment console. The new operating system will allow you to view live and recorded TV, music, photos, videos, and other online entertainment. This is a change from the past where the only way to get a copy of Windows Media Center was to buy a gadget that had the entertainment-based operating system preinstalled.

Vista has been long overdue and possibly over anticipated. This is the first Windows version since 2001. There are some new bells and whistles including a see-through glass like window that pops up to display your programs when you scroll over them in the start menu. This feature, called Windows Aero, could save you a little time.

The difference between LCD and plasma flat-panel TVs

What is the difference between LCD and plasma flat-panel TVs? Also, has an HDTV standard for the United States been officially adopted? I am thinking about purchasing a new TV set and am not sure whether it's wise to do it now or wait.

LCD TVs use an LCD panel to create the picture. It's the same LCD screen technology you find on laptop computers and digital cameras. Plasma TVs use gas suspended within glass panels and stimulated by an electrical field to create the picture.

Each technology has its advantages. Plasmas tend to have a better picture than LCD TVs, while LCD TVs promise better long-term reliability and freedom from screen burn-in worries.
