I’ve been watching most of the day the buzz about Dave Winer’s newest contribution to silly things wealthy geeks can do to waste their money and look cool at the same time and who of course are Mac folks who shelled out $600 bucks for a Mac Mini and have an HDTV.
Yes with all that and Dave’s handy dandy application which is only available for the Mac you too can reduce your entertainment center down to a slide show projector of all your pictures on Flickr or if you are really feeling adventurous the AP news wire. Isn’t that cool?
Needless to say Robert Scoble hisself has jumped on the bandwagon and letting the world – well the tech blogosphere at least – know just how cool it is. Hey Robert – it’s a freakin slide show and just because you have a disposable income that could feed a family in the real world for more than a year doesn’t make this an earth shattering momentous event.
As for being able to hook up a computer to a TV well Duh! I guess because it was Microsoft that came out with it’s Media Center or numerous open source projects for both Windows and Linux doesn’t count for shit now that Dave has decided that his talents in connecting RSS feed to a screensaver is the new road forward. Unlike Louis though I don’t see anything to get all gushy over just because Mac users can now show off all those wonderful family photos on their HDTV. Chances are they will be just as boring as when we all sat in front of the projector screen.
