In our first feature post of the week, Steve O’Hear wrote an in-depth review of Internet TV in 2007: “From YouTube’s continued dominance, the television networks’ newfound willingness to experiment online, the rise of the desktop Internet TV application, and a number of new PC-to-TV devices and set-top boxes — it’s been a big year for Internet TV in all shapes and forms. In this post we look back at 2007 through the lens of last100’s coverage, highlighting some of the important stories and trends, and how they point to what we might expect for Internet TV in 2008.”
Next up, Dan Langendorf revisited the topic of eBook readers, giving a great overview of the main players, outlining their strengths and weaknesses and how eBook devices and services still have a long way to go.
