It’s Real: YouTube Debuts Live Streaming Platform With Two-Day TestBeginning Monday morning and running through Tuesday night, four select YouTube partners — Next New Networks, Howcast, Young Hollywood, and Rocketboom — will be streaming live footage on YouTube (you can see a full listing of what they’re broadcasting in the widget above.

However, the company has confirmed that it plans to eventually offer live streaming to all of its content partners (it may just take a while to get there).

Intel Wi-Di hooks your laptop to your TV wirelessly
Intel Wi-Di hooks your laptop to your TV wirelessly

If you have a current-generation Core i3, i5 or i7 with Intel 802.11n wireless and Windows 7, your notebook already has Wi-Di (wireless display) built in — the ability to stream the laptop screen to a TV or any other device with Wi-Di.

Until now, people haven’t really been aware of Wi-Di because Intel has been waiting for the consumer tech industry to catch up and build the technology into TVs. Some notebook manufacturers also haven’t installed the “My WiFi” and “Intel Wireless Display” software that enables the screen transmission.

although Intel said Wi-Di relied on the processing power of “Core” CPUs when it was first released, it was today demoing it running on a tablet prototype running on a dual-core Atom.

Online videos approach a billion views

Four out of five online Australians (81 per cent), or 10.7 million people, watched videos online in July, with almost a billion (970 million) videos viewed that month.

The average viewer watched more than seven hours of video, meaning that Australians’ use of online video rivals the time they spend on social networking site Facebook, which has riven above eight hours a month.

The 539 million videos viewed on Google-owned sites accounted for more than half (55.5 per cent) of all views, and 99 per cent of these were watched on YouTube.

How To Access Google Instant From Australia | Lifehacker Australia
How To Access Google Instant From Australia use the address www.google.com/webhp?sclient=psy for searching instead.

As with most Google online products, Google Instant is being rolled out gradually across its operations, so even some US users on the main Google.com domain haven’t yet got access and may not see it for a couple of days.

Google said in a press announcement this morning that it “hopes” the service will be added to the Australian site “in the coming weeks”, but advises: “People outside the US will be able to use Instant Search through Google.com.” In practice, your success is likely to vary even if you try this. I raised this with Google, which says the service should be available via the .com site down under “in the coming days”.
