YouTube just got Wider

Category: InternetTeknovis @ 11:12 pm

I was looking at a video on YouTube earlier (Making of the Ryanair Cabin Crew Charity Calendar 2009 – not that it is relevant ;), and I suddenly realised that the video player was widescreen! Some quick investigation revealed that some videos already make use of the extra width.

More details about this change can be found in the official blog post Bigger Isn’t Always Better… But in This Case, We Believe It Is.

French Presidency Capitalises on Barack Obama Popularity

Category: Humour,InternetTeknovis @ 1:00 pm

A French friend of mine sent me a link this morning, and told me to take a look at it. The link was http://www.obama08.fr/, so I was expecting another Barack Obama website.

However, if you visit this link you are actually taken to http://www.elysee.fr/, which is the official homepage of the French President!

I think that this is nothing more than a good joke, because the registration details for each domain are quite different according to the WHOIS Service for French domains.
