Joost!

Welcome to Joost!




Brought to you by the makers of Kazaa and Skype, Joost (pronounced 'Juiced') is a interactive program for distributing TV shows over the internet using P2P technology.


The program is based on P2PTV technology and is expected to deliver near-TV resolution images. It turns your PC into an instant on-demand TV without any need for additional set top box. News updates, discussion forums, show ratings, and multi-user chat sessions (often linked to the active stream/channel) are made possible through the use of semi-transparent widget overlays.
At the moment, Joost is in invitation-only beta testing. Since I've not blogged in a long time, I thought of handing out *drumroll* Joost Beta invites! Good way to find out if there are people out there that still read my blog. At first use, I noticed that it has a really smooth interface; it's very noninvasive and is easy on the eyes. I glanced through some of the features such as News updates, discussion forums, show ratings, and multi-user chat sessions (often linked to the active stream/channel).Joost looks like it has a lot of potential. In the future, you'll hopefully see a lot of TV Shows appearing on Joost. The company has signed up with Warner Music some other production companies for the beta.

Therefore if you want to help Beta test Joost, all you have to do is let me know you read this. Three invites remaining, so you'll want to hurry.

Also, I've started to hate Blogger and it's templates. So hopefully, I'll be moving my act here. And another thing, why does Sony choose to limit customers purchasing games from the PS Store only if they reside in select countries. What about people living in the other half of the world? There is an alternative method (Playstation cards) but nobody knows where to get one of them.

Also, about the PS Store thing, I heard that you can register your account to a different country without actually residing there. I saw where some people were talking about doing that in order to DL some content that was only in the Japanese PS Store.

Saw your comment in the downloadsquad.com article about unlimited joost invites. So I jumped over here to shamelessly trying to score me an invite. I did read some of your posts and the 300 parody on your new blog was quite funny. Well, probably should get back to work. If you have an invite to spare I would much appreciate it. andbernt at gmail.com

Saw your post on download and shot over here to check out your blog.
I'd really like to check out the Joost beta. So if indeed the invites are unlimited, I'd appreciate it.
