I don't have cable, but I occasionally do get the urge to watch TV. Which is where youtube.com makes itself useful to me.
Like Tivo, youtube allows you to time-shift your viewing habit, but it also serves up audience ranked videos with zero delay.
Examples of amazing vids:
- Messi's goal against Croatia last week (check out his positioning, once to intercept, another when he scores, striking when the goalie is blinded by his fullback!)
- a compilation of Djalminha's soccer for his retirement in 2005.
- David Elsewhere's robot (3rd on stage)
- more parkour
- banned xbox ad
- professional ping pong is a martial art
- Billy Marks skatin
- and tons of anime
