Vimeo has finally arrived on Roku. Following the likes of Pandora, Netflix and Amazon VOD, you can now sort videos according to their picks, your uploads and selections saved for later viewing. Of course, nothing is perfect as the service lacks sharing, albums, and channels, but it's a start. Vimeo itself recently added HTML5 for iPhone and iPad support.

PadLock Embarrasses iPad Thieves

We like nothing better than freeware here at NAV and think that the Padlock deserves a NAVi award. When your iPad, iPhone or iPod becomes unattached from your Mac (whether on purpose or by some nasty thief,) a loud noise disturbs you and everyone else around you at that WiFi café. To disable, simply plug your device back in or turn off internally. You can download PadLock at Kitchen Budapest.
