Joost in the Radar

Posted on Wed 17 January 2007
O'Reilly Radar publishes an article titled " Joost is the iPhone of TV" that says that " Joost is the Firefox or iPhone of TV" because it is based on the " the Mozilla XUL platform, which enables the rapid and simple creation of plugins, already known to a hoard of Firefox extension developers".

The comparison with Firefox is very accurate, since Joost will allow people to write extensions to their TV. But that's unfortunately not the case of the iPhone which appears to be clearly locked down.

So the article should have better been titled " Joost is the Firefox of TV"!

The Venice Project is now Joost
