I feel kind of weird recommending this one because, if you watching vidcasts, of course you’re already watching BBtv, right?
Just like anyone in their right mind already reads Boing Boing itself, if you’re at all interested in vidcasts, you positively must be watching BBtv. It’s covers the same kind of weird, unfamiliar yet utterly captivating side of the Internet and the world that BoingBoing revels in.
To the point, even, that I don’t want my mp3s to think I don’t like them.
I’ve noticed a really odd thing that I’ve been doing for some time that I don’t quite understand. It seems that instead of skipping to the next song in Amarok when it’s near its end, I’ll restore the window and drag the time slider to the end of the song. This is because I’m worried that skipping the song will affect its rating/score, and I don’t want to do that if I like the song.
I even have a few “sacrificial” songs in my playlist. When I want to skip to an album way down on the list, I’ll place the song to be sacrificed below the current track, drag the slider to the end, and then once it’s playing the sacrificial song I can safely skip to the song I’d wanted. Because I don’t care if the sacrificial song gets a bad rating.
GeekBrief.TV is similar in content and format to the newer WebbAlert, but Cali Lewis gives the show a lighter, less formal style. You can’t help but smile along with her infectious laugh. The show’s slogan, even, is “shiny, happy tech news, with Cali Lewis.”
According to their website: “Geek Brief TV is a 3-5 minute video podcast, released 4-5 times a week. We cover news about technology, consumer electronics, and Web 2.0 projects.”
The show heavily features new and/or interesting products, and Cali’s casual demeanor gives an air of honesty that you don’t normally see when hosts discuss consumer electronics.
