This week, I love Vine. From the Vine blog: Vine is “a new mobile service that lets you create and share beautiful, short looping videos.” It was developed by some of the folks involved with the creation of Twitter so, naturally, your Vine videos can be easily shared through your Twitter account. Vine is a program that works with your phone’s camera and allows you to film six seconds of video that tells a particular story. That’s the key point: your short video should tell a story. I’m still new to Vine but here’s a video I did to give viewers an idea of what our nightly routine with Graham is like.
To get the full experience, click here to go to my Vine page. Vine’s been called “Instagram for video”. I never got into Instagram but I’m really going to like Vine. Many people have taken a lot of time to craft very detailed videos but the best part of Vine is that you can be as sloppy as you want to be.
This week, I don’t like “Hulu Hangups”. As mentioned in a recent post, I’ve been enjoying Hulu Plus via our PlayStation 3. It’s a great service but more often than not, I’ll experience a “Hulu Hangup” when trying to watch a show. Hulu Plus has loads of great content and it’s all organized very well. But when trying to quickly drill down through different seasons of shows, the service sometimes just…goes blank. The only way to overcome this problem is to close out Hulu Plus all together and start over. I don’t think Julie has experienced this with her Roku device so maybe this is just a PS3 issue.
