A periodic roundup of relevant news from our friends at Zatz Not Funny…
Dave Zatz: As the title states, the Blockbuster OnDemand MediaPoint 2Wire box just isn’t ready for prime time.

Mari Silbey: The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) hosted a webcast this afternoon with a recap on Black Friday CE spending. There was too much juicy data to report in one post, so for now I thought I’d relate some of the surprises from the holiday weekend.
Dave Zatz: The primary function of Neuros LINK is to organize and access web-based video on the TV, such as Hulu or Amazon OnDemand.
Dave Zatz: During my Dublin vacation, I caught wind of the new iPhone Joost client via Twitter. Putting the hotel’s complimentary Internet connectivity to good use, I immediately downloaded the WiFi-only app.
