Digg.com videos coming to Internet television network

The Digg Reel to tout most popular video submissions

Internet television network Revision3 is launching The Digg Reel, a new weekly show that will highlight the most popular videos submitted to Digg.com.

The Wednesday show will include 10 to 15 minutes of clips from the most popular videos on Digg that week as voted by the users of the popular news ranking site. In addition to highlighting the videos, the show will include the best comments from the Digg online community, said Jim Louderback, CEO of Revision3 Corp.

Viewers will also go behind the scenes to meet the creators of the videos to find out how, when, where and why the video was made.

"There is so much user-generated and other video on the Web and so much of it is not very good," Louderback said. "It's great to have the community select it. In 15 minutes, you're going to be able to be completely updated on all the top videos each week that the Internet is buzzing about.

Jay Adelson, CEO of Digg Inc. and a founder of Revision3, along with Digg founder Kevin Rose, said that the popularity of videos on Digg shows how a large social content community can really help users find the best video content available.

"Revision3 will take it to the next level by giving viewers something they can't get anywhere else -- short clips from those videos, comments from our community and a behind-the-scenes perspective," Adelson said in a statement.

Revision3, which was created in 2005, served up more than 25 million shows and more than 103 million clips in 2007 through its Web site, the company announced early this month. In addition, it signed on advertisers like Sony, Virgin, Microsoft, Warner Bros., GoDaddy, Netflix and Intel last year, the company said.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
