Atteeeention! Without further ado, (drum roll goes here) â€œIntroducing Blubrry on Boxee!â€ Oh, heck yeah, weâ€™re a little â€œover the topâ€ and excited and hereâ€™s why: Blubrry has an application that runs on the Boxee platform, which downloads movies, television shows and your digital media from the Internet onto your TV. Thatâ€™s right! Weâ€™re providing our digital media creators, listeners and viewers yet another avenue to be seen and heard! And we all love a little — or even a lot more — attention.
Boxee will have hardware available in your favorite electronics stores in the coming months. But if you donâ€™t want to wait, all you have to do is install the free software on your computer and connect it to your TV with an HDMI or DVI cord (depending on the computer you use). You can use an Apple remote or one of several PC remotes available to navigate to Boxee. So, whatâ€™re you waiting for? Give Boxee a try, seek out your favorite shows, and let us know what you think!
Yup. As always, RawVoiceÂ and Blubrry are out there on the leading edge of media technology looking out for your best interests. This is just one more step in the evolution of alternative distribution capabilities for RawVoice and our family of media sites. Stay tuned. Thereâ€™s a lot more coming up!

I have two main outlets from whom I procure my gear for podcasting. And since I do quite a bit of audio and video my needs get quite complex at times. I won’t go into the details now but I plan to delve into those issues in future posts.
For now I want to point out two spots on the internet where you can find quality audio and video gear at reasonable prices.
I’ve been using Sweetwater for years for my computer audio recording needs. Before I started podcasting I was composing music on my PC. A friend introduced me to the folks at Sweetwater and I’ve been a fan ever since. They have a great selection and they provide a lot of info about the products they sell. They’re also very friendly after you buy something in case you have questions or problems. And this is one of the few companies whose catalogs I’m always glad to see arrive.
For gear related to my video production I shop at B&H Photo Video. They’re based in New York City so sometimes I go to their store at 9th Avenue and 34th St. to get what I need. Most people will use the website though. B&H is known as a mecca for photo gear but they also have plenty of goodies for video including camcorders, tapes, mics, etc. Their prices are very competitive and they always ship promptly. I see a lot of “deals” when I’m searching the internet to meet my video needs but I always return to B&H because I know that they back up their products with good service.
I’ve got no affiliation with either of these stores and they have not asked us to point them out. This is all about pointing podcasters to places where they can get good gear at reasonable prices without having to worry about getting ripped off.
