  • "Glad to see Yahoo (NSDQ: YHOO) still has some activity going on in its Connected Life unit: Intel (NSDQ: INTC), on its developer day, has previewed plans for the Widget Channel, a TV application framework to bring online apps/widgets onto TV…it has tied up with Yahoo for it, which will supply its “Yahoo Widget Engine”. These will bring content, information and community features available online onto the TV and manageable through the remote control. It will allow integration of services such as Yahoo Finance, Yahoo Sports, Blockbuster (NYSE: BBI) and eBay (NSDQ: EBAY). To help create new Widgets for this, Intel and Yahoo plan to make a development kit available to developers, including TV and other CE device makers, advertisers and publishers. No specific timeline of launch has been released."
  • News International and FT Group have launched The Times and Financial Times on to Amazon’s (NSDQ: AMZN) clunky Kindle e-reader, even though the gadget isn’t available in the UK. Priced $14.99 (£8.04) and $9.99 (£5.36) per month respectively, the digital editions come at a considerable saving over the dead-tree editions and are delivered wirelessly to the device each morning over Amazon’s US-only Whispernet service. The Independent was already available on Kindle, along with The Irish Times, Le Monde, Les Echos and Shanghai Daily. Via Kindle Reader.
  • Everyone knows it, so it must be true: Everyone hates pre-roll video ads — the mini-ads that publishers want you to sit through before you actually watch a clip. We bail out on them constantly, and everyone we know does the same.

    But video ad network Tremor Media says we and everyone we know are in a small minority. It says only 20% of Web video watchers give up and leave when confronted with the pre-rolls it serves up. Or, as Tremor is putting it in a release later today, 80% watch the ads all the way through.
