I was totally stoked yesterday to receive an invite to the invite-only Joost Beta from Mariano over at www.onemanstartup.com. There's been a lot of buzz about Joost lately in podland and the blogosphere. I didn't think it likely that I would receive an invite since I didn't know anyone who was already "in." Well, Mariano was kind enough to send one my way after I commented on his blog.
I clicked the link and began downloading the beta software. Sweet! New technology, exclusive sneak peak, free of charge!!! Does it get much better for a geek of my stature? It's almost too good to be true.
As the software downloaded I noticed a note on the download page that read: Currently, Joost runs only on the latest Macintosh computers equipped with Intel processors. Uuuuugggh! Both my Powerbook and iMac are Pre-Intel. Drats, foiled again! One day, after I grow rich from my blogging and vlogging revenues, I will keep only the most current technology and be able to use all the latest software and gadgets. I will, I tell you!
