Hulu (rhymes with WooHoo!) has been in development for over a year and promises to be the cutting edge web-based video on-demand service offering full length episodes of NBC and FOX programs including shows from Bravo, Fuel TV, Style, Sundance, Oxygen channels plus selected movies.

The site,, is still in private beta and is open by invitation only. The teaser on the home page is available to all. Jason Kilar, Hulu's CEO previewed Hulu at the recent IAB Digital conference in Phoenix to a sell out crowd of digerati. Performance of the site was flawless, presented in a clean, uncluttered and user friendly environment. The quality of the program delivery was outstanding.
Hulu is the future of television.

One of the newer entrants into the world of gadgets we can't live without is Chumby. The handsome device is a "widget box", serving up your favorite streaming widgets, photos or radio stations. It's an alarm clock, a calendar or anything else you might find useful to stream to your desk or bedside stand. The unit will set you back $179, but the service is free and "connects" wirelessly thru a router. Visit them at

But don't take my word for it. Wired Magazine did a good job reviewing Chumby here.
