BBC iPlayer to Go Global


The entire planet will soon have access to the BBC's iPlayer. John Smith, the head of BBC Worldwide, says that because continental Europeans and North Americans do not have to pay the TV licensing fee, there will be some form of commercialization to make up for it. We are more than excited about the release due sometime next year as most of our access to UK media is limited to Netflix's BBC mini-series and occasional material on PBS.

Pre-Order Boxee for Nov. Release


What is it about the month of September that triggers an early holiday button in electronics companies? The Boxee Box can deliver all major formats and codecs along with free and premium TV, movies, videos, images and music from the Net and is now available for pre-order. A delay occurred so that the company could switch from a NVIDIA Tegra 2 chipset to an Intel Atom CE4100 platform. The D-Link device has 802.11N connectivity and will begin shipping next month with its QWERTY remote.

Virtual Snow World Used on Burn Patients

When you think of networking, you usually think of audio/video in the real world, but the University of Washington is now using a virtual world to treat burn victims. "Snow World" allows users to wander through an imaginary environment and even toss snowballs via an fMRI brain scan. The cooling blue colors and tunes by Paul Simon apparently ease the sometime excruciating pain, according to many of the patients. Co-creator and director of UW's VR Analgesia Research Center Hunter Hoffman says this is just the first step in using mind over matter as an alternative to drugs.
