It's searches are far better than searching sites themselves as it only returns full programs, not promo clips etc. Pay content marked so you don't waste your time.

Also: YouTube announced they're player will soon be 1080P HD capable.

Time to ditch your cable company? New internet TV announcements

Yesterday was a big day for anyone considering canceling their cable service in favor of viewing television and movie content via the web. Several unrelated announcements should help make internet TV a more viable alternative to paying the high cost of cable.

First, let's talk about YouTube. Yesterday they announced that they'll start offering full 1080P HD streams; better than your cable company can offer. This new option will be available within the next few days. YouTube says it stores all content in its native resolution, so any 1080P content that has been uploaded to the service in the past will only need to be re-encoded (by YouTube) in order to be available in its high-def glory. For more details, check out CNET's story.

Well another launch yesterday was Clicker, a programming guide for internet TV. What's nice about Clicker is that it only offers full episodes of content, so you won't get dozens of hits that lead to 15 second clips. Clicker catalogs content from both free and paid sources, such as Netflix Instant Streaming and Amazon Video-on-Demand, but it marks paid content clearly so you can skip over it if you wish. You can set up Playlists, and Clicker also offers some social features, such as Trends and connecting your Clicker account to your Facebook account.

Neat site, thanks.

But I was surprised that I couldn't find James Burke's "Connections" under the Education/PBS heading. That was a great show based on his book. It's somewhat dated now (1979), but that makes it all the better. He really had a cool take on the history of man and his machines and how it is all "connected".
