MySpaceTV beta good for addicts

Want to spread a viral video to a huge chunk of Web audience beyond that of (or in addition to) YouTube? Want to upload video to your MySpace profile, without the need for other sites?

Want to spread a viral video to a huge chunk of Web audience beyond that of (or in addition to) YouTube? Want to upload video to your MySpace profile, without the need for other sites? Then MySpaceTV is for you.

MySpaceTV supports the largest range of file types of any service we tested, and its video quality--particularly the smoothness of motion--was among the best Flash 8 video we saw.

But the site is first and foremost, a social networking site. If you don't have an existing MySpace account, you'll first be asked to upload a photo and invite your friends before you can upload your video. Uploading our test video was quite easy, though; the process took around 5 minutes to complete. The video was live about 15 minutes later, and we could then post it to a friend's MySpace bulletin board or to our own MySpace blog or profile, and share it via direct link, embeddable player code, IM, or e-mail. Videos can also be marked private, meaning they won't show up in MySpaceTV's search pages or category listings.

Despite imposing a bottom-right watermark on the video, the embedded MySpaceTV video player actually looks quite good. It also has controls to make the video smaller (and potentially clearer) or full screen. Strangely though, the latter option would sometimes--quite randomly--cause our video to be horizontally squashed within the embedded player. Nevertheless, MySpaceTV narrowly edges out AOL Uncut Video to complete our top 10 video sharing sites.

Bottom line: Most appealing to those seeking video uploads to their MySpace blog/profile without the need for other sites. Non-MySpacers are best served elsewhere, though.

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
