Don’t you just hate the way video sites like YouTube take a random still image from the uploaded video clip as a thumbnail, meant to be representative of what the video looks like? Because it always manages to take a snapshot of me looking like a complete spanner:

Which, yes, is representative of what I look like all the time. I look like a bloody used car salesman. Or the devil. Or an insurance fraudster.

Oh, and:

Open auditions for BOYS will be held in LIBERTY HALL in Dublin City Centre on Saturday 28th August from 10am

Open auditions for GIRLS will be held in LIBERTY HALL in Dublin City Centre on Sunday 29th August from 10am

So, George Hook is going on a cruise:

For the first time ever, we're offering the opportunity to enjoy seven nights on the high seas in the company of the outspoken George Hook. Listen to George give seminars on ‘How to beat the recession’ and “Irish Rugby to the World Cup 2011” as well as enjoying his usual craic and repartee!

I got so excited at the prospect, I had to sing about it – in my extremely ropey Hooky Monster impression:

I’m still writing for Joe.ie by the way – click the pic to head over there. And feel free to take a look around. It’s good stuff. It’s man stuff.

Has Apple gone soft?

ScreenHunter_01 Aug. 11 20.17

If you, like me, are an iPad owner, then you, like me, are probably wondering why the fuck you ever bought the bastard in the first place, because it’s a pain in the hole to watch your downloaded TV and movie files on the yoke without a ridiculously laborious conversion process. Well, those days are over. CineXPlayer is here!

This free (yeah – FREE!) app is on the iTunes app store now and you can lump your Xvids straight onto the iPad without conversion. Copy, and go! Apple have been notoriously closed-minded about media formats it’ll allow to play on it’s devices, which leaves me wondering if this app is a fluke that fell through the cracks of the iTunes approval process, or a nod towards a more open-minded approach in the future. If the app disappears in the next few days, I suppose we’ll know the answer.

One minor quibble: they leave a wee ad for their company in the bottom right corner. Not a dealbreaker, but a small pain.

By the way, yes this is the thing I was talking about on yesterday’s show that JP didn’t understand.

PS – yes, I know about AirVideo. This is a better solution for me.
