I spent time over the weekend playing with Netflix streaming on the Wii, and I was impressed, partly because of my lowered expectations due to the Wii hardware and screen resolution. Like the PS3, you need a free Wii streaming disc ( ), which takes a few minutes to start the Netflix application. When you run it for the first time you'll have to link it to your Netflix account, but this only takes a minute. The user interface is unique to the Netflix Wii app, and makes use of the Wiimote for pointing, selecting, and navigating (it feels like a Wii application).  I tested the Wii ...

PC World Philippines :: Netflix
SAN FRANCISCO – In response to some recent posts about YouTube, reader Miles wrote me to ask about YouTube “buffeting” (I think he means buffering, unless YouTube has started generating strong winds in his area). Specifically, Miles is wondering why YouTube sometimes starts and stops playback rather than buffering the entire video (or most of it, anyway) and then playing it. Good question! YouTube? What do you have to say for yourself? Nothing. I see. Well, the fact is that YouTube isn’t the only video site that does a mediocre job of buffering. Even if there’s network congestion or a slow ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Satoru Iwata recently announced that the next DS will have a motion sensor, but that isn’t all. He also told Asahi that it will have a higher-resolution screen. An HD screen. The next DS, after the DSi XL, will feature a 1024 x 768 screen, which close to 720p. Aside from that, Iwata also confirmed that Nintendo is in talks with several networks for connected DS consoles. Obviously they want to compete with iPhone games. Our guess is that an app store will also accompany these upgrades. Lots of people out there who own a Nintendo DSi carry it with them everywhere. If you can get the devices you take with you everywhere to ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Earnings Preview: Netflix Inc.
SAN FRANCISCO — Home video subscription service Netflix Inc. is scheduled to report its second-quarter earnings after the stock market closes Wednesday. WHAT TO WATCH FOR: Netflix has been following a familiar script for nearly two years now, delivering one blowout quarter after another while consistently increasing its projected number of future subscribers. There's little reason to believe Netflix won't exceed expectations again in the second quarter, but even that might not be enough to propel a stock that already has more than doubled so far this year and climbed into the triple digits. The shares were ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

As the great race to become America’s favorite source of full-length TV and movie streams gets underway, two of the favorites in that race are Hulu and Netflix. Hulu has a fairly large headstart.

Roku or Seagate or WD? | Ask MetaFilter
My cable went out again, and I'm thinking of just canceling and getting one of these devices, but which one?? What do you folks feel is the "better" one. I would like to watch Netflix for one on it. I have an old crappy tv with rca ports, not a nice hd tv, if that matters. Thanks! Well, Seagate and WD aren't devices, they're (primarily) hard drive manufacturers that have gotten into the media streaming game on the side. I'm guessing you mean the Seagate Free Agent Theater+. For WD, I'm guessing you mean the Wester Digital TV Live Plus HD that just added Netflix support in the latest revision. I ...
