Entertainment 2.0 #121 : Yay Cloud!

PrintCraig has returned from South America to join josh for episode 121 of Entertainment 2.0.   has made it to episode 121. This week’s show was kicked of by a big email that was written in response to all of the conversations surrounding the Zune in Episode 119. We couldn’t help but start the news section with great news out of Ceton. After that we discussed Amazon’s launch of their Cloud Player service. Then, much like with Episode 119, we speculated about what Microsoft may be doing based on a new job title for Tom Gibbons.

Of course we had to mention the new release of one of our favorite Media Center plugins: Media Browser. They’ve released a new version and an app store of sorts. Keeping with the plugins we had a look at a new one named Cord Choppers Episode Tracker. Windows Home Server 2011 was also released to manufacturing this week, so we brushed up on our Home Server knowledge. We finished off the show talking about Netflix. They have acquired exclusive rights to distribute a new TV show. They’ve also begun offering the ability to modify the download quality for Canadian streaming customers. If you missed the show live, remember you can always listen live, and join in the chat, on Tuesday nights at 8:00 PM EDT.
