It's still hotter than the blazes here in Colorado, but there are starting to be some signs of cooler days ahead. But while the heat is still set on "high", I'll take the opportunity to show you some cool things that have come out of the minds of developers and manufacturers around the world.
I'd also like to take a quick poll of our viewers today (see poll below). Many of you are tired of the parade of interruptions from Ustream ads, although those ads are what enable us to broadcast for free. We have used YouTube before; their ads seem to be much less obtrusive and annoying. There's only one problem -- some viewers in European countries, Germany in particular, cannot watch the live stream without coming in through some sort of proxy. So the poll question is this -- should TUAW TV Live move to YouTube or stay on Ustream?
And now on with the show!
Below, you'll find a Ustream livestream viewer and a chat tool. The chat tool allows you to participate by asking questions or making comments. You'll be watching the show in glorious HD!
If you're driving somewhere and would like to watch TUAW TV Live while you're stuck in traffic, please don't -- keep your eyes on the road! However, if someone else is doing the driving, you can watch the show on your iPhone and join the chat by downloading the free Ustream App. It's a universal app and is wonderful on an iPad, both for viewing and participating in the chat.
We'll start at about 5 PM ET, so if you're seeing a prerecorded show, be sure to refresh your browser until you see the live stream. For those of you who are not able to join us for the live edition, you'll be able to view it later this evening on our TUAW Video YouTube channel and as part of the TUAW TV Live podcast viewable in iTunes or on any of your Apple devices.
