Joost is turning heads, want an invite?

  • April 2nd, 2007

UPDATE: Joost loaded the invites pool. Nearly unlimited invites available as of this update. Drop your request in the comments and I’ll make sure to send the invites out as soon as possible.

If you haven’t heard of or read anything about Joost [and the promises, hopes, and dreams early adopters forsee], check out the chatter on Technorati. I manged to acquire an invite a number of weeks back and am entertained by the idea of legally running the application on my Apple TV without any necessary hacks or general geekery requirements. Come on Apple! Update our consoles with an online directory of “approved” applications we can run from our couches. Isn’t the Apple TV already phoning home?

I enjoy the idea of one day dropping / replacing cable television altogether in favor of online content. Come to think of it, I haven’t flipped through channels on TV for quite some time. Are you still watching cable television?

If you’re looking for a Joost invite, I currently have 5 available. The first 5 readers [have received their invites] to comment with their favorite article & why (I’m curious to hear about interests readers) from the archives will receive an invite in their inbox (assuming your address in the comment form is legit). I’ll update the availability of invites as time passes as my account is replenished.
