Joost beta test

Joost Today I got to try out Joost, and my impression is that it’s just like TV, except worse. The reason why I don’t own a TV set is that there’s nothing but crap on, lots of channels but nothing worth seeing. Joost is the same, except more sports. It’s not fair to judge them on their content yet, I know, and I am excited of what Joost will bring once they get some big players on — it’s just that I had expected that there would be something, at least one show, that was worth watching.

Oh, and the UI consumes 100% of my CPU.

Edit: Updating to 0.8.1 takes down the CPU usage to around 30%, which is about the same as VLC, so no complaints.

    just installed the beta myself. since it is still beta and limited content. i was actually pleasantly surprised at the amount of content for such a new startup app.

    and the player can be minimize to a smaller window so it doesnt take up your whole screen.

    i’m going to post a video review soon on my blog showing this.

    i am truly excited that we are witnessing the dawn of internet tv. there hasnt been something like this since the time tv was first introduced in my opinion.

    I like the 5th gear channel…it is nice that I could watch the review of cars.

    I believe they will still add more channel

    [...] Joost seems soon to be out of beta, and it’s gotten much better since the first Mac version was released and I tested it for the first time (see my review of it from back then). [...]
