Locate TV; its quite nice really

I’ve recently started a conversation (via this blog) with the nice people at Locate TV.

Locate TV is in very early stage Beta, but aims to be a kind of TV Show Google/ Radio Times/ Internet Movie Database kind of search engine. Essentially say if you want to see the next episode of Heroes it will give you the times of the next TV screening, connect to a DVD store and tell you where you can download it ,all with a little descriptive blurb. All legal stuff too, which is either good or bad I guess depending on where you stand – student sci-fi nut, or responsible media Rights Manager.

If you’d like a Beta invite and make your own mind up, send me a mail (link in my profile) and I’ll get the nice lady to mail you a password.

I like the concept of this site, especially as you may be aware of my previous comments about broadcasters pushing premiere showings, making it hard to catch up with water-cooler TV after the BARB (ratings body) aimed promo’d slot.

Locate need to sort out their Genre search for this thing to become truly useful, but that is on the cards. As I’ve talked about before, it would be so useful to (potential) audiences if producers start attaching tags of content and likely interest groups to their shows to aid discovery.

The site also has some nice other little widgets and upgrades planned, which I’m loathed to say too much about (Ok, Facebook is a clue for one thing) as new businesses need to keep things close to their chests.

So, take a look and see what you think.

And you, good sir, are quite nice really too.

Thanks for the post Vlad and yes any mediavladski readers do let Vlad know if you want a pass and we'll do our best... and do post your comments about what you think of the idea and what your hopes and fears for it may be!

I'm not a nice lady really, but I have him fooled ;)

רציתי לחלק אותכם בחוויה אותו עברתי לאחר הפיגוע בדולפינריום. במשך חצי שנה לאחר הטראומה, הרגשתי מדוכאת, חסרת שמחה, עייפה ומדוכדכת. עם טיפולים רפואיים רגילים לא יכולתי לשקם את עצמי ולכן פניתי ל- [b][url=http://www.maker.co.il/3_15707/%D7%9E%D7%90%D7%9E%D7%A8/%D7%9B%D7%9C-%D7%94%D7%A2%D7%95%D7%91%D7%93%D7%95%D7%AA-%D7%A2%D7%9C-%D7%A0%D7%A4%D7%A9-%D7%94%D7%90%D7%93%D7%9D-%D7%95%D7%A2%D7%99%D7%A1%D7%95%D7%99-%D7%A8%D7%A4%D7%95%D7%90%D7%99-(%D7%9E%D7%A1%D7%90%D7%92%60).html]עיסוי[/url][/b] רפואי אלטרנטיבי. ייעצו לי על מעסה מקצועי מ-Spa-Vip.co.il - עיסוי עד הבית, אשר כולל מסאז שוודי משחרר במיוחד אשר גרם להתעוררות חושים תוך טיפול אחד בלבד. השינוי אותו עברתי היה יוצא מן הרגיל, אומנם זה היה טיפול עיסוי איורוודה ראשון, חזרה השמחה לחיי, פיזרתי את השיער ויצאתי מה- [b][url=http://www.academics.co.il/Articles/Article12945.aspx]מסאג[/url][/b]' עם כוחות חדשים, מחייכת ומוכנה להמשיך הלאה.

עיסוי האיורוודה הוא עיסוי אשר כולל ריח של קטורת, נרות וריח של קטורת. ההתחלה של עיסוי היא מגע עדין מעל המגבת לאחר חשיפה של הגוף מכף רגל ועד ראש. נמרח שמן חם מכף רגל ועד הראש, לאחר מכן תנועה מלטפת ועדינה מכף רגל ועד ראש ובחזרה. אחרי כמה תנועות מפנקות עוברים לצד השני של הגוף, אחרי התנועות על צידו השני יש שילוב של לחיצות רפואיות מכיוון שהגוף התרגל למגע מפנק ומרגיע ודבר זה גרם לשרירים להרפות מעט... כל זה בטיפול פרטי של [b][url=http://www.academics.co.il/Authors/Author2173.aspx]מעסה[/url][/b] מקצועי עד בית הלקוח!

אישית לא האמנתי כי דברים כאלה יכולים להיות עד אשר התענגתי עם מסאז שוודי באיכות כזאת, המעסה המקצועי אליי הביתה עם מגע שלא הכרתי אשר לא תיארתי שיכול להיות. ממליצה לכל אחד ואחת אשר מעוניינים ב עיסוי רפואי, [b][url=http://israblog.nana10.co.il/blogread.asp?blog=682132]מסאז[/url][/b]' או סתם חוויה בלתי נשכחת באמצע השבוע על Spa-VIP.co.il.
