Today I tried Joost. First on a computer with Windows XP. The Joost interface worked fine, what didn’t was the video.
The network at my work blocks all ports that have anything to do with file sharing or communication (I’m so glad IT/Network-guys are not into politics, we would end up in a totalitarian regime).
Anyway tonight I tried it again on Bert’s intel powered iMac. Too bad. Just tonight something went wrong with the version control system of Joost on Mac. I’m sure the have it up and running again tomorrow.
What I could play with this afternoon was the interface without video. What is exciting about it is the way it is build. The interface seems perfectly suited for a remote control. In the mainscreen you navigate using left, up, right. Every new television/dvd/hd remote has joystick-like options. All you need is a box that connects Joost to your tv or a Joost compatible television with a harddrive.
I can’t wait to try it with video.
