It looks like Boing Boing is starting to include ads in their RSS feeds.
Starting in January, you'll be able to watch live HD TV on your Boxee Box using a new USB dongle from the company.
Announced today, the device will cost $49 and will enable you to view live HD channels from your local broadcasters - ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX with no monthly fee as these are over-the-air (OTA) HD channels produced for your local market.
Thus keeping print media valuable (to advertisers), yet not, since I'll subscribe to the print edition just to get the iPad edition and never read the print version. I'll probably donate the printed copies to my local library.
This scenario has bugged me for some time and I'm surprised that no one has thought to fix it:
You're watching an embedded video in a web page. It's small because it has to fit within the width of the page element in which it's placed. To make it larger, your only other option is to maximize it to full screen.
However, unless it's Full HD, what you gain by enlarging the screen you lose in resolution - everything becomes blurred or pixelated.
Why isn't there an option for "Native Resolution"?
