Bleeding Edge 077: CES 2007 Video: Hands-on with Ojo Video Phones

We got a chance to speak with Jim McLoughlin of Ojo, maker of low-latency video phones. For $10 a month, you can speak to anyone else with an Ojo in unlimited amounts. Useful perhaps for breadwinners frequently traveling and missing their families, the system will likely be purchased in pairs, as you really have to know someone with an Ojo to make use of it. The video includes prices, but we were sad to learn it wouldn’t allow users to communicate with, say, MSN Messenger users through video chat. It would make a great device for someone without a full-blown computer, if only.


DivX And The Future Of The Digital Home

Gear Live reader Davis Freeburg writes in:

As early adopters who’ve downloaded a DivX movie file know, their video file is second to none.  There is no unreasonable wait, the quality is fantastic and it’s highly portable throughout the home.  Born in the wild wild west of the P2P revolution, DivX has recently tried to shake their bad boy image for a more corporate look with a recent IPO.  In an interview with Jordan Greenhall, DivX’s CEO, he discusses the impact that piracy has played on their negotations with the studios, the future of DivX on the Xbox 360, the PS3 and the Wii and his plans to bring media convergence into the digital home.

One of our favorite quotes from the piece is Jordan talking about what it could mean if Microsoft added DivX playback to the Xbox 360:

The pressure would certainly be on and then it’s a matter of the politics of each organization. I would argue that on a pure market competitive basis, if Microsoft stepped up and put DivX on the Xbox, they would have a significant competitive advantage and the onus would be on to reduce that advantage by licensing DivX as well, but that doesn’t imply however the Sony would have the forethought to do it.

Tom Bihn Interview

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Wearables, Features

Tom BihnTom Bihn sent us a couple of their bags to review, and also one to give away to one of our readers. While we haven’t yet completed reviewing the bags (they will be put to the test in a couple of weeks at E3), I can say that people have stopped me to ask where I got the bag on the streets. We were able to sit down with Tom to discuss a few aspects of the company and what makes their bags unique. The questions are actually from you guys, as we received a bunch of email when we were running the bag giveaway.

What are a few things about a Tom Bihn bag that sets it apart from another?

All of our bags are completely American made. We are very proud of that. They are very streamlined, with appealing aesthetics with highly functional designs. Looking at them, you will also see that we use bold colors in our materials. One of the nicer things, though, is that the bags are extremely durable. We had one customer actually complain to us that his bag, after seven years, has yet to wear itself out!
