Yahoo bought Meedio (the Meedio home page has the news item on it). How did I find out about it? A friend of mine, who’s building his own HTPC told me about it last night. Yeah, I know how I missed it, I’ve been preoccupied with my new phone and that whole community.
So, what does the purchase mean to Meedio owners? I’m not sure. Meedio has ceased providing any downloads, although their support forums are still online. And that (or, more precisely this forum post) is where I heard about Yahoo! Go. It looks like Go is a collection of technologies that hasn’t all been really brought together yet but it’s promising. No, I haven’t downloaded any of it yet, but their widgets look promising. I think it’s derived from (or maybe IS) Konfabulator and is all a take-off of the stuff you can do on Apple’s OS X.
With luck I’ll find the time to download and try this out. In the meantime, if any of you have a chance to try it, please let me know what you think. Comments should be open. And, of course, you can always drop me an email.
