To help Yahoo introduce how they are jumping
out of the PC. Yahoo has announced
a set of popular Yahoo tools--including movie
listings, trailers and online music--for television. It's free though it requires the TV be hooked
up to a PC running Microsoft's Windows CP or Media Center operating system. The
service will also be available to
cell phone users with data connection. They'll be able
to use tools such as e-mail,
photo sharing, weather and traffic, also free.
It's the most natural thing in the world,"
says Yahoo CEO Terry Semel. "It's about a connected life--how we
take the information we store online and use on any device...
We think the Internet isn't a Web page or a
destination for the PC anymore.
I got to meet Mr. Semel and we had a talk
about some future ideas that the StuioClub.com and Yahoo might team up on...looking back we
two great webcasts with YahooBroadcast.com. I have always
thought they were
on the cutting edge...especially when they were so smart to
acquire Mark Cuban's Broadcast.com. I did a interview with Cuban's HDTV while in Vegas
they ask me
about my thoughts on CES 06.
