Ebaumsworld, Break.com, Then YouTube, Now What?
The online video industry has evolved from small online video companies to giant entities over the last 6 years. This growth is reflective of technological advances and the power of broadband technology. The first online video was produced in 2004 and the ability of broadband speeds to allow playing flawless flash animations engendered the online video industry. In 2005 several online video companies were started and to date the industry is thriving.
One of the most popular online video companies is Ebaumsworld. Ebaumsworld is a site where videos, flash cartoons and video games can be accessed. The site gained its popularity because it allowed users to access videos, flash animations and other media collected from all over the internet. Ebaumsworld remained at the top of the industry until new players like YouTube gained ground. Today Ebaumsworld receives about a million hits per day compared to YouTube’s one billion. The loss of Ebaumsworld market leadership is attributed to several unethical practices, involving sourcing of their content. While YouTube had a clear strategic direction and internal stability, Ebaumsworld has suffered legal battles and internal instability which negatively affected its public image. Such weaknesses came at a time when a more creative and fairly ethical YouTube was rising.
While Ebaumsworld provided content to its users, YouTube took a different approach. The inventors of YouTube ensured that the users of their site would upload, share and view videos. This was unheard of with Ebaumsworld. The approach is customer-focused, allowing anyone to upload a video and has attracted millions of users. You will find video clips from BBC, CBS and other large media companies on YouTube. Potentially offensive content is only available to registered users above 18. Currently YouTube controls about 43% of the US video market and has over 35 hours of new videos being uploaded per minute. YouTube is likely to remain the largest online video company for the time being. But to keep this spot, the company must continue to be innovative. It must also find ways of avoiding uploading copyrighted and defamatory material. It is possible that the rise of Salar Kamangar this year as the new CEO will create space for innovative ways to address some of these issues.
Generally it is expected that the industry will continue to grow, especially as broadband technology becomes more available and affordable. For any online video company to come up and face the likes of YouTube, its proprietors will have to be more creative and innovative. They will have to offer diverse information, entertainment and education in more innovative and ethical ways. They have to generate a deeper industry foresight, distinguish themselves from the rest and position to compete for opportunities. Greater online video opportunities lie ahead as the world becomes a digital village, with today’s digital natives becoming tomorrow’s investors and inventors. Expect more innovations from these digital natives over this decade. Already new online video companies are around the corner.
New companies have come on the scene of the online video business at a time when copyright and ethical issues continue to haunt the market leaders. The company comes as an aggregator of all Web 2.0 video sites to make them available to users at the lowest cost. Xyz.tv joins the industry with a unique approach that will allow its users to access virtually all videos on the net. Yes, all videos from all around the net Xyz.tv is likely to be the next rival of YouTube over the next ten years. Let’s watch the space and see what happens next.

WOBURN, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Monotype Imaging Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: TYPE), a leading provider of typefaces, technology and expertise for creative applications and consumer devices, has acquired Design By Front Limited, developers of the Typecast™ application, a browser-based tool for designing Web pages with Web fonts.
“Typecast fits neatly into our strategy of adding IP that complements our solutions and provides meaningful value to customers”
Monotype acquired all outstanding shares of the privately-held, 14-person firm based in Belfast, Northern Ireland, for up to $5.1 million in cash. Monotype paid $2.6 million in cash upon closing, with an additional $100,000 accrued pending final adjustments, with the remainder to be paid contingent on attainment of certain performance criteria through 2014.
The acquisition is expected to enhance Monotype’s product offering, add complementary skill sets to the company’s creative expertise, and strengthen Monotype’s growth businesses, particularly in Web font services.
“Typecast fits neatly into our strategy of adding IP that complements our solutions and provides meaningful value to customers,” said Doug Shaw, president and chief executive officer of Monotype. “The Web has become a critical publishing platform, where brands need to represent themselves with clarity and consistency across connected devices. As a typographic design tool, we believe Typecast has the potential to take Web fonts to a whole new level of productivity and creative expression. We’re excited to welcome the Typecast team and to add this innovative technology to our solutions portfolio.”
“Good typography is essential for Web design. That’s the fundamental idea behind Typecast,” said Paul McKeever, managing director and co-founder of Design By Front. “We created Typecast simply to make it easier to work with Web fonts, and to give Web designers precise typographic control to make the Web a more beautiful, readable place. We look forward to bringing to the Web design community a powerful application that’s actually easy and fun to use.”
Employees of the newly acquired company will continue to work from their current locations, with the Belfast office serving as the main development hub for Typecast.
Currently in public beta, Typecast enables Web designers to combine, compare and style Web fonts quickly without performing screen captures in third-party applications or through hand coding. Users can visually style text directly within the browser, which offers more scope for creative experimentation, better typographic control as well as a simplified workflow, thanks to Typecast’s ability to generate production-ready HTML and CSS code behind the scenes, as designers work.
Web designers are also free to make various adjustments such as font size, line spacing and coloring, in addition to employing OpenType® features including ligatures, small caps, fractions, lining and old style figures, and swash characters. Designers can try fonts with all pieces of content, not just small snippets. Side-by-side comparison and testing allow users to see at a glance what’s working and what’s not. Styles can be adjusted across entire projects with just a few clicks.
Typecast will be offered alongside Monotype’s Web font solution, combining high-quality Web fonts with Typecast’s easy-to-use typographic design capabilities. Monotype’s Fonts.com Web Fonts features thousands of typefaces, including timeless designs such as the Trade Gothic®, Avenir® and ITC Avant Garde Gothic® families, in addition to cutting-edge selections and hand-tuned fonts. Typecast customers, however, can continue using any Web font solution that Typecast supports, including the Fonts.com Web Fonts, Typekit®, Fontdeck® and Google® Web Fonts offerings.
Typecast represents the latest innovation in Monotype’s portfolio of products aimed at enhancing productivity and creative expression for today’s graphics professionals. Last month, Monotype announced its SkyFonts™ service, now in private beta, which expands creative freedom through cloud-based, rental access to fully functional desktop fonts. Customers are able to try thousands of fonts for free within any desktop application and then rent selected fonts for as long as they’re needed.
Further information about Typecast, including a video that details the application, is available at typecast

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jack 9 Entertainment Inc. announces today that they have launched Version 2.0 of their website that airs on-demand, professionally produced and exclusive content targeted at males 18-34. Version 2.0 heralds the first time that Jack 9’s proprietary video and advertisement platform have been revealed.
“The network system SKINS (graphically changed duplicate web-sites) allow us to do any kind of media programming delivered by our central network system and CD”
“Today was the second step on our path to providing advertisers real content that connects to consumers in a contextual way,” says Jack 9 President, James Marcellino. “First we had to prove that our concept of content would draw viewers. With no advertising, www.Jack9.com is receiving over 500,000 uniques per day, with returning customers in the double digits. Now we’ve upped the ante by signing multiple deals that give us access to exclusive, professionally produced content and by delivering that content to our viewers in a user-friendly way. That’s what version 2.0 is all about- giving viewers more of what they want.”
“Jack9 2.0 is the evolution of months of preparation. Focusing only on the newest Web 2.0 technology to separate Jack9 from the rest of the IPTV pack,” says Jack9 CEO, Richard Granville. “Our network infrastructure and server farms coupled with our own proprietary software programs is not good news for our competitors.”
Jack9 is beginning talks for their final raise of capital and as a debt free private company with unlimited revenue potential, Jack9 expects interest from Yahoo, Google, MSN or ASK. “Whoever controls Jack9 gains a huge advantage in the IPTV and online video arena,” Granville continues.
Jack9 is also a developer of original IPTV content. “Regurgitated TV misses the mark. Viewers want something fresh, edgier and NOT TV, which is why they are tuning in to Jack9. Our numbers are off the charts. Jack9’s returning metrics crashed the data server at one of our ad agencies. How’s that for an indicator?” asks Granville.
Chief Technical Officer of Jack 9 and program developer, Eric Darst says that the next step in delivering advertisers and viewers a breakthrough in internet video is unveiling their analytics and metrics tool by June 1, 2007. The proprietary backend of www.Jack9.com aims to provide advertisers with consumer focused measurement detailing the context in which viewers are interacting with the advertiser’s message.
“We plan on beating competitors like YouTube, Veoh and VideoEgg in terms of both quality of analytics and timeline,” says CTO, Eric Darst. “Our Commercial Delivery Program (CDP) is the most advanced of its type. We plan on setting the standard for the online video industry – even the big boys will be following our lead. The initial look of the site will be upgraded over the next few weeks so that the aesthetics are improved, but we felt the world needed to see us sooner, rather than later.”
Jack9 Entertainment is scheduled to launch other genre websites, for teens, women, baby-boomers and seniors. “The network system SKINS (graphically changed duplicate web-sites) allow us to do any kind of media programming delivered by our central network system and CD,” continues Darst.
Industry insiders are already taking note of the power of Jack9’s content and ability to convene a community of the coveted male demographic of 18-34 year olds.
“Jack9’s latest design gives its audience more of what it wants right from the get-go, the flashing images and music that beckon demonstrate what the site has to offer in one quick glance,” says co-author of Web Analytics for Dummies, Jennifer Leclaire. There are no guessing games to find the channel you are looking for on Jack9 because the pictures say it all. www.Jack9.com really knows how to serve guys who crave mixed martial arts, extreme sports and other broadcasting for the “guy’s guy” in true web 2.0 fashion.”

Corning Willow Glass Creates Licensing Opportunities to Integrate ZipBoard Inc.'s Patented Retractable Whiteboard Design with Rollable LCD Tablet and Computer Screens
Tewksbury, MA (PRWEB) June 07, 2012
The fragile and rigid nature of glass has significantly limited its applications in television, smart phone and electronic tablet displays and screens — until now. Corning, the world leader in specialty glass, has unveiled a breakthrough flexible glass technology that is paper thin, bendable, scratch resistant, and capable of withstanding temperatures up to 500 degrees. Glass isnt inherently a rigid substance, explains Dipak Chowdhury, Cornings Willow Glass program director. When it gets super thin, it becomes flexible just like any substance. If you take glass as thick as a business card, its not flexible. Think about the same business card and make it seven times thinner — it works like paper. The ability to ream Willow Glass like paper and future potential for high throughput, efficient roll-to-roll processing has opened up a treasure chest of potential applications.
Corning is currently shipping the ultra-thin flexible glass to equipment makers, manufacturers and designers to come up with new uses for its flexible glass. Corning hopes that electronics manufacturers Samsung and Sony, who are currently producing flexible displays, will use Willow Glass to protect their LCD screens. Manufacturers of tablets and smartphones can use Willow Glass to make their current devices thinner, lighter and cost-efficient.
Future applications for Willow Glass are generating broad-based interest in patents relating to flexible LCD and computer screen technologies. Companies with strong patent libraries such as Universal Display Corporation, who exclusively license approximately 1,400 patents worldwide, are well positioned to create future revenue streams through patent licensing opportunities related to new applications for Willow Glass.
Another patent holder that has attracted a lot of attention following the launch of Willow Glass is Boston-based Zipboard Inc., manufacturers of the worlds first and only retractable portable whiteboard. Zipboard Inc. recently announced R&D efforts to integrate rollable LCD and computer screen technologies into their patented design. ZipBoards patent is drawing interest from manufacturers of portable electronic writing tablets that are used for school, office and sports. ZipBoards patent pertains to writing surfaces that can be extended from a housing and held sufficiently flat to facilitate marking on the writing surface with a writing implement, such as a dry-erase marker, chalk, grease crayon, pencil, pen, permanent marker or the like. ZipBoards writing surface can be retracted back into the housing to protect the writing surface and to reduce the size of the device for storage or transport, such as within a pocket or briefcase. Retracting the writing surface includes rolling the writing surface onto a spool, accordion folding the writing surface or otherwise reconfiguring the writing surface to make it fit into a compact space.
The Zipboard has numerous applications as a communication tool in sports, health care and education. Willow Glass is accelerating electronics manufacturers interest in using the companys patented design to house their flexible LCD and computer screens. Zipboard founder, Robert Budryk, said in an interview this morning that “It appears to be a natural evolution of our product to integrate flexible computer screens with our design. The reason why our design is appealing to these companies is the way in which our design makes the flexible screen rigid once it is pulled from the housing. I envision computer tablets in the future that can be rolled up and easily stored on your hip or even in a pocket.” The future of rollable computer screens is bright and Budryk, who hopes his technology will be widely adopted, is preparing for the exciting ride ahead.
With patents that are garnering serious interest from manufacturers developing flexible LCD devices, companies like ZipBoard and Universal Display Corporation should see a new world of opportunities through the unlimited applications for Willow Glass.
If you are bothered by nearsightedness or astigmatism, or need to work before computers or do some other near activities for long time, 20/20 rule will help you to slow down the progression or avoid getting nearsightedness and astigmatism. The following will give some introduction on 20/20 rule in order to lead more people to benefit from this rule.
Nowadays, a lot of people need to work before computers everyday with eyes staring at the computer screen all day long. There is some important points most people always neglect, one is the distance between screen and eyes, the other is no rest while staring at screen nearly a whole day. This is also the same case for people doing some other near activities, for example, reading or doing some paper work. After a certain time of working like this, people are opting for nearsightedness or astigmatism, or their nearsightedness or astigmatism is deteriorating.
20/20 rule is also known as Harmon’s Rule, which uses simple steps to slow down the progression of nearsightedness and astigmatism. Following this rule, people are required to place their computer screen at the distance of 20-26 inches from the eyes. And for other near activities, the proper distance is 14-20 inches. In order to measure the distance easily, you can use the distance between the elbow and wrist to compare if the distance is ok or not. In addition, it is required for people who are doing near activities to stare at objects at the distance of 20 feet for every 20-minute work and keep staring for 20 seconds. So it is also called # Rule.
Though 20/20 rule is very easy, it is often the case that people are easy to forget the time especially when they are busy at working. So it is advised to have an online 20/20 rule timer. The timer can counts down from 20 minutes, and when it gets to 0, there will be a window coming out to indicate you to stare at objects at 20 feet for 20 seconds. With the help of the timer, it will be no difficulty to practice 20/20 rule.
From the above introduction, we can see 20/20 rule is a very easy but effective method to slow down nearsightedness and astigmatism. But there is a point we should keep in mind that 20/20 rule can slow down the progression of nearsightedness and astigmatism, but can not treat nearsightedness and astigmatism.
As a visitor, when you browse through other web sites, I am sure you will find many things that turn you off. Have you ever made the effort to list them and to check them in your web site?
A well-designed and professional looking web site must stay away from certain elements, to attract visitors and thereby boost your business. In spite of having a great product, a shoddy web site will set it back in terms of sales.
A good web designer will be able to list the good components of a well-designed site, like, accessibility design, interface or layout design, user experience design and graphic design. Listed here are the components that can mar a web site.
1. Background music: Stay away from background score, even if you have found the most pleasant notes. The exception to this is a web site related to music. The repetitive notes will irritate a visitor in the long run. Moreover, this puts additional burden on the visitor, as a web page takes longer to load with music in it.
2. Extra large and small font size: These extraneous things are not given much importance by the visitors. Set the font size such that a normal visitor can read the text without effort. Instead of spending time on frivolous graphics, pay more attention to user accessibility.
3. Popup windows: Now, with most sites displaying innumerable ads as popups, web surfers have learnt to overcome them with popup blockers. Hence, refrain from putting important messages in popups, as they get blocked and won’t be seen by the visitors.
If your site has one or more of the above components, take serious note of it and change it ASAP.
This week brings great news for fans of Microsoft’s perennial web-browser – Internet Explorer with the release of IE9, this week at South by Southwest, or SXSW, as it is commonly referred to.
The official launch for users of the web-standard browser is, Monday, March 14th at 9:00 PM Pacific Time.
Among the new features that Internet Explorer 9 touts are:
The new interface is sexy and puts it’s emphasis on the internet browsing experience as oppsed to the large search tools and boxes we find on earlier versions of Internet Explorer. Fear not, however! If you are a fan of the "old" interface, Microsoft gives you the option of restoring those features with a simple right-click funtionality.
For sites that you visit frequently, all you need to do is click the icon to the left of the website address and drag it to the task bar. Faster means better productivity and better social networking.
Microsoft, ever the target for viruses and hackers looking to steal your information, has implemented a great new feature into IE9. The new download manager not only lets you pause and restart downloads, it also notifies you of possibly malicious programs looking to hijack your computer.
Enhanced Tabs and New Tab Page
If you want to "snap" a page out of IE9 and have a side-by-side image or comparison with another webpage, think shopping comparisons, Internet Explorer 9 lets you do just that. The new tab page automatically color codes the sites you visit most often for fast navigation. Those that don’t want this feature may disable it, giving the user the flexibilty to tailor his or her browsing experience to their own liking.

Nashville, Tenn. (PRWEB) January 07, 2013
When a persons email account is hacked, its very possible that one or all of the following computer symptoms will occur:
- The persons email contacts are reporting spam messages from his/her account.
- The person is receiving bounced emails from random addresses that he/she doesnt recognize.
- The person is unable to log into his/her account or change its settings.
- The person discovers that his/her settings have been changed.
- The person attempts to use his/her email, but finds that its been blocked by the provider.
Its important to know what to do in this situation and to understand that time is of the essence. Damage has already been done, but the sooner one acts, the less of a problem it will become.
Best known for teaching people how to build their own environmentally-friendly sources of energy so that they can slash their power bills and be safe when power outages occur, Power4Patriots also wants to help people quickly deal with the damage of having their email accounts hacked and to remedy the situation.
Following are Power4Patriots 8 steps to take when an email account is hacked:
1.Bring anti-virus and anti-malware programs up to date, then select a setting that sends an automatic notification when new security fixes become available.
2.Change the password and make it more difficult to guess. Use both upper and lower case letters, as well as numbers and symbols. Also, change passwords for other accounts, especially if the same password is being used for those accounts.
3.Send an email to all contacts, apologizing for any inconvenience. Warn them not to click on any links within an email that looks suspicious. Tell them that steps are being taken to ensure that it doesnt happen again.
4.Delete any old accounts that are rarely or never used anymore. Theyre just sitting there waiting to be hacked.
5.Consider compartmentalizing online life. Have one email address for personal and business communications, a second for communicating with online service providers and a third for registering on websites, signing up for newsletters, doing online shopping, etc.
6.Dont use public computers, such as those located in libraries, to check email messages.
7.Be more cautious about opening emails and clicking on links. If a subject heading sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Banks and other legitimate companies will not ask people to authenticate personal information online.
8.Be very careful when downloading programs, games, videos, songs and apps, some of which may have malware attached to them.
As seen on Yahoo News, here is a Power4Patriots article on how to handle cell phone hackers.
