Video Adverts

Note: This is just a rant.

I don’t know why but I’m starting to dislike video advertisements showing up on top of content of a page. I also don’t like that they take up bandwidth of your internet connection. Granted business need to make money by promoting their goods and services.

I’ve found that video ads intrusive as of late. Though a number of things have annoyed me to some extent, but that’s another post for another time.

Bored with using the internet or visiting websites

Don’t know why but recently I just want to write of using the web and the internet in general. What I mean is that the internet really no longer holds its appeal to me, or it doesn’t feel like “new.” Granted all I do now is to check email, use bloglines, Google Reader, and visit a couple other websites – including my own site.

Though for the last 2 1/2 to 3 years or so I’ve been using Bloglines which has been great to organize and centralize the things that I like to read the most. Such as entertainment news or follow tech sites. Although I have been using a new computer for the last year – which I use mainly for school work, and in part to work on my website which I haven’t updated that much recently which I should do soon.

I’m getting off track – sort of. It just seems like that I don’t want to have much to do with the web anymore – well not as much as I did like about 10 years ago when I started using the web and the internet.

One thing that I’ve been doing less and less is blogging and I think the problems is that what I want to say and it doesn’t come out right or just unable to put things into words.

bye for now…

Slacker

I discovered a new internet based radio site named Slacker that works on a Macintosh system well through – at least – Firefox 2. Granted its in beta, but its not like Yahoo! Music that doesn’t support Mac in regards to its Radio part of its site. The music video’s on Yahoo Music do work in Firefox on the Macintosh system which is nice.

Anyway, now its nice to have some place to listen to the radio on the internet besides ITunes. Here is the link to the story on how found Slacker.com.

Now if Yahoo! would add or improve support for the Macintosh platform on it music site, which I doubt that its going happen anytime soon. Well sort of Apple buying a larger company, but then again its wishful thinking.
