Netflix will finally offer their streaming services to Canadians. According to this press release Netflix should offer it by fall.
Canadian Netflix members will be able to instantly watch a broad array of movies and TV episodes right on their TVs via a range of consumer electronics devices capable of streaming from Netflix, as well as watching on PCs and Macs.
In addition to representing its inaugural international market, Canada will also mark the first streaming-only service promoted by Netflix.
At the time of launch, the Netflix Canadian service will be available in English only, but the company said it expects to add French language capability over time.
Canadians interested in Netflix can go to www.netflix.ca and sign up to receive an email from the company when the service launches in Canada this fall.
Can’t wait to get this service!
Ever since Google Chrome had extension support i fell in love with this browser. About a couple of week after the initial release of the first beta, thousand of extensions emerged. I was getting annoyed to have a tons of applications running on my computer and outlook was a big chunk. Gmail was able to replace the email part of outlook by adding pop3 accounts and Google Calendar and task as the scheduling part of outlook.
Using all those Google web application is all good but it lack of desktop notifications and you have to open the app in a tab to be able to use it at its full capacity but you still don’t have any reminder popups.
But now with 2 Google Chrome extensions you can have Desktop reminders using the new Google Chrome desktop notification API for you email and Google Calendar events. Google Mail checker Plus and Google Calendar checker Plus have a Desktop notification feature.
I addition to these two other great extension i also use Google Tasks by OpenBit to manage my Google tasks, even without desktop notifications it is still a nice extension to have since it give you a quick way to see/create tasks using the Great Google task feature in Gmail and Google calendar.
