wanna get joost?

...and the winner is: Jason

I'm in VA My name is Jason and I think Joost Rocks, I want it so I can watch
cool shows and hook up my home media center. I want to blow my friends mind with
TV from the net on my big ass flat screen as well as i would like to review it
and blog about it. But most of all I just want to make my bros jelous and rock
out the bug screen.

Pretty selfish reasons but anyway, there you

UPDATE: well it didn't take long. and with the popularity of this new app, it's no surprise. I've recieved a bunch of emails and a couple of comments. So just to make this interesting, if you really want it, tell me who (and where) you are and why you should have it.

Rememeber joost? the internet tv app developed by the skype guys? i reviewd it here.

Joost (pronounced 'juiced') is an interactive software for distributing TV shows and other forms of video over the Web using peer-to-peer TV technology, created by Niklas Zennström and Janus Friis (founders of Skype and Kazaa).

The program is based on P2PTV technology and is expected to deliver near-TV resolution images. It turns a PC into an instant on-demand TV without any need for additional set top box. News updates, discussion forums, show ratings, and multi-user chat sessions (often linked to the active stream/channel) are made possible through the use of semi-transparent widget overlays.

Currently, the software is in beta-testing stage. A beta invite is required to join the Joost community.

I can't use it on my crappy internet connection, so until i get broadband it's not for me.

So i have one beta tester account to give away if you want it.

Being your most dedicated blog fan should account for something......shouldn't it?

You know I'll love you forever either way. Being your (almost) stalker is its own reward. (However, I really really would love to try out the Joost thing.)

You know where to find me. ~wink wink nudge nudge~
