Veggie Vission is Internet TV brings you information, education and entertainment for cruelty-free living and animal-free eating, let’s say ‘veganism’.

After 18 months strugling with the idea to start with a TV programme about veganism, Karin Ridgers, a famous U.K. TV presenter and businesswoman decided to produce at last her own internet TV station, VeggieVision.co.uk.

Veganism is a philosophy and practise of respect for animals, which avoids the use of animals for food, clothing, and other human purposes.

iTunes Phone??

Posted by @ 7:03 pm. Filed under gadgets

I place a bet Apple, together with Motorola, will introduce on September 7th the first iPod Phone.

Motorola CEO Ed Zander on July 25 promised the iTunes phone would be out before the end of September.

Why do I think that? Read this article of BetaNews: Apple Event Fuels iPod Speculation

rtvchannel.tv, once again

Posted by @ 6:46 pm. Filed under itv

In a previous post, I stated “Because you have to register before you can watch (login with password), I’ll ban this one!“.
By now, you don’t have to register anymore at RTV Channel. So, a close look at RTV Channel is worthy I suppose.

On the Dutch RTV Channel and German RTV Channel, it is indeed not compelled to first register. On the UK site, you still have to register.

RTV Channel, a project of RTVZ, is a real direct live internet TV station, like MTV, free to viewers. RTV Channel is just streaming music for your pleasure, World Wide Internet TV. You can request a music clip or send even one of yours. RTV Channel is a station founded to make streaming media available on the web.

RTV Channel TV Online live televisie

Actually, RTV Channel is COOL! I think RTV Channel is the first non-stop music video channel on the Internet.

It’s pitty, according my experiences, that RTV Channel only plays with Internet Explorer. The RTV Channel player didn’t start in Opera, Mozilla and Firefox.

Required bandwidth: 1000Kb/s
Advised plugins: Media Player

Google Joins the Internet Phone Revolution

Posted by @ 8:58 pm. Filed under platform

By Roger Overanout

Its not so long ago that the idea of free phone calls over the Internet would have been thought an impossibility, but as any knowledgeable user will tell you they are now commonplace. Skype the pioneer and market leader has 51 million users and a great, easy to use software package that allows your computer to make Internet phone calls between subscribers.

All you need is a reasonable computer, preferably a broadband connection but it will work over a dial up connection, and a microphone, then as long as the person you want to contact is online and also signed up to the same service, you can talk for ever for no cost.

Blogging From the Iraq Front Lines

Posted by @ 6:11 pm. Filed under blogs

Michael Yon is at this moment in Iraq, in the centre of the front lines. From there, he reports daily on his weblog, even often with pictures. On thursday, August 25, 2005, his platoon got a radio message that an American soldier was killed in a battle. An repatriation mission was set up with all speed. An other soldier got injured. The whole story can you read here.

Michael Yon is an independent, informed observer chronicling the monumentally important events in the efforts to stabilize Iraq. His dispatches have the benefit of his life experiences without drawbacks based on deadlines or demands of marketplace. The cost of these dispatches is borne solely by himself.

On Monday, while conducting operations in west Mosul, a voice came over the radio saying troops from our brother unit, the 3-21, were fighting with the enemy in east Mosul on the opposite side of the Tigris River. Moments later, SSG Will Shockley relayed word to us that an American soldier was dead. We began searching for the shooters near one of the bridges on our side of the Tigris, but they got away. Jose L. Ruiz was killed in action.

Although the situation in Mosul is better, our troops still fight here every day. This may not be the war some folks had in mind a few years ago. But once the shooting starts, a plan is just a guess in a party dress.

To fight back, finally, I was forced to migrate from bBlog to Wordpress because Wordpress has advanced anti-spam features.
In the next days and weeks, I'll remake and redesign wallies.info blog. Sorry for this inconvenience!
