Boxee Beta Gets a Movie Library

Written on August 28, 2010 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

Enjoy a handful of films to watch online for FREE with the help of Boxee! You can grab a movie from EZTakes, Indie Movies Online, MUBI or Openfilm. Get a chance to feast your eyes with hard-to-find flicks that won't surely be out in the cinemas, or get your favorite documentaries and short films queue.

Since its launch last January, users of Boxee Beta have been vocal about their love for the TV Show Library. Today, Boxee added a Movie Library to complement its TV Show Library, and it includes a handful of films from its partners: EZTakes, Indie Movies Online, MUBI and Openfilm. The Movie Library makes it easy to find, watch or in-line films that you like. Though it is still in beta and rough with 100 bugs to fix, you can have a quick peek at what you can get from each provider:

1. EZTakes: EZTakes specializes in bringing hard-to-find movies to you. Their library contains almost a thousand ad-supported titles that you can watch on Boxee or in any computer, smartphone or portable video player.

2. IndieMoviesOnline: Known for its fierce movie reviews and behind-the-scenes editorials, IndieMoviesOnline delivers high quality films from both mainstream and up-and-comers talent.

3. MUBI: MUBI is a social network that can be your online cinema, anytime, anywhere. It can help you find a virtual treasure that will definitely not be released in the local multiplex. However, to get access on MUBI, you’ll need to pair your account first.

4. Openfilm: Openfilm.com is a fast-growing online community that unites the key elements of the film industry in one venue.

Versions for Mac, Windows, and Linux are now available, while the AppleTV version will be updated next week. Have you downloaded your own Boxie already? Share us your findings by dropping a comment.

Microsoft to Hand-Out Windows Phone 7 to its Employees

Written on July 28, 2010 by B Waldorf

Microsoft’s expert Mary Jo Foley has tweeted a company employee who is bragging about the commitment to hand out Windows Phone 7 devices to each employee of Redmond’s 90,000 plus employees all over the world. A good way to spread the word. Realistically speaking, the cost of this to Microsoft is a drop in the bucket if they can really do this and take advantage of the advertising effect.

This step would be a delight in process if they are sure about this campaign. They should be able to make the complimentary unit solid, hot and working while handing out to employees. Microsoft surely has the work spirit of multitasking when they really are working. Indeed.
