Hulu Sucks Donkey Balls – So Please Stop Using It In Posts

I realize that my fellow bloggers in the States might be all kinds of enamored over Hulu but for the rest of the world it is just another stupid geotarded product that is as about as useful as female mammary glands on a bull.

A geotarded mess

Doing this only supports the stupidity of geotarding products and everything that surrounds the idea.

Please stop!

Between doing my best to reply to all the comments that my post over on Mashable raised yesterday and trying to figure out this whole screencasting things from creating to posting my day has kinda been on the full side which meant not much got posted. However I did managed to find a few things on today’s FriendFeed pipeline to share with you. so here we go for this evening…

US Representative becomes live broadcaster from JPL

I sometimes consider myself a little jaded when it comes to public figures trying to use current events and technology to promote themselves in one fashion or another but today I have to admit I’m amazed when I saw who was broadcasting about the successful Phoenix landing on Mars. Granted the landing was great and congratulations on your success but when was the last time we ever had a US Representative broadcasting about it live using his cell phone.

I find it fantastic that Representative John Culberson became so involved that he used his cell phone to broadcast via the Qik service his interaction with all the engineers taking part in the Mars landing at JPL. We will probably be debating whether Qik has now reached the mainstream but right now I don’t care I just find it so encouraging that either the Senator or his team thought of reaching out this way. Fantastic.
