Why I Love CTV

In Mac, TV on April 25, 2008 at 8:30 pm

I realized something interesting recently. I’ve entirely replaced a television network with it’s online equivalent. I no longer watch CTV’s The Comedy Network anymore. I catch Daily Show and The Report the afternoon after they air and Corner Gas and The Root of All Evil when they come online. I also watch some Comedy Now when I have some spare time.

Now CTV has upped their game. They now offer for free and yes Mac users, DRM-free, streams of ABC hits Desperate Housewives, Grey’s Anatomy and LOST (Here’s a link to the simply amazing “The Shape of Things To Come” I’ve posted about yesterday.) It’s not ABC’s HD streams but it is one hell of a step ahead when compared to what they originally offered. If you can stand Windows, you can also enjoy Nip/Tuck, Studio 60 and TMZ. If not and you want to say with OS X, you can watch CTV originals such as Instant Star, Degrassi, Whistler and (soon to be over 😦 ) Corner Gas. Nearly  everything is Canada only but hey, I don’t mind that Americans get that message for a change.


Why I Love This Show

I don’t talk much about my favorite TV show, LOST, but after The Shape of Things to Come, I just had to say something.

That was amazing. Ben popping up in the middle of the desert in a “Halliwax” coat, Jack getting sick, Daniel’s daughter’s dead (and her too, maybe), Smokey’s return and that final threat. If this had to be the season finale, I would have been a happy man.

Which is exactly the best part about the whole situation : It isn’t and the finale will be a three-hour, two-week extravaganza. And there’s still two seasons.

Eliminating Productivity

You know that Audiosurf game I talked about. Well, I got it to work in OS X with a 7-day trial version of CrossOver Games. There are glitches but the main gameplay stayed intact. Thank goodness CrossOver Games is $40 or I might have justified the purchase. Then God knows how I would have been able to work anymore.

Guitar Hero Has Met It’s Match

In Like a Drug, Windows on a Mac on April 6, 2008 at 3:05 pm

I just stumbled upon an amazing game. Ever heard of Phase? It’s a rythm game from Harmonix (makers of the extremly popular Guitar Hero and Rock Band). Phase is for the iPod and lets you play using your own music. Well meet AudioSurf : The equivalent for the PC (Yes, as in “for Windows”). It let’s play with your music (including iTunes Plus DRM-Free music) in a kind of space-shooter/Tetris-stacking enviroment that changes with the beat of the music. It’s amazing and you can try it out for free by visiting their site (Steam and Steam account required – both are also free). But the true wonder is the price : $9.95. So test it out and go nuts.

Rock On!

I know this is an April Fools’ joke but I would re-subscribe to World of Warcraft the moment the Bard Hero class is implemented. Guitar Hero and Wow: Can you ask for anything more?
