A cute little video a Kiwi friend of mine sent to me today from Vodafone New Zealand.
I find the making of videos more interesting. And it occured to me that something like this could only happen in a small market like New Zealand where there isn’t much network traffic in the early hours of the day, compared to somewhere like China or the US. However, China does have this.
To promote Hammertime the new series following the life of MC Hammer, A & E did this great little gorilla effort. Might have been a little bit OTT as some people look very scared of the sudden invasion of gold hammer pants.
Just got wind of a new website launching this winter that gaming industry experts feel will be a real threat to consoles. The start-up, OnLive has created a console-less gaming system in which gamers can use their broadband connections to stream on-demand games from the likes of EA, Ubisoft and Atari to their computers or TV.
The site will also be community based, offering multiplayer gaming, sharing clips of gaming highlights (“brag clips”), and watching real-time game play. The platform will be offered through a monthly subscription plan, and expected to be competitively priced to retail. It’ll be interesting to see how gamers will receive the site once it is launched.
