Ever heard of a vook?

January 29, 2010

Perhaps the next best thing, according to an Alameda company!

Vook Inc.’s product is a multimedia application that works on a computer’s Internet browser and can be downloaded to an iPhone or iPod Touch. The software displays the text with accompanying video clips. Called a “vook,” it’s a digital mashup of video and books, with a dash of popular social networks Facebook and Twitter thrown in for seasoning.


Explosive internet speeds? :)

It looks like we might finally have a workable alternative to Comcast, as a result of AT&T installing their U-verse service in Alameda.

I was curious to see how these cabinets look and in the process, came upon reports of them actually exploding due to faulty batteries! The reports were from 2008, so it is entirely possible that the problem(s) have been fixed by now.
