innertube - at least the name is cool
On the heels of ABC's cool, new video streaming service, CBS has launched their own service called innertube. After looking at what they are offering, I have to wonder why they bothered.

Unlike the ABC version, which lets you watch their big prime-time shows, CBS has chosen to launch with 3 clips (2 from "Survivor," 1 from "Greek to Chic"). And, while ABC has decided to support Firefox and IE, CBS has decided to create a site that actually crashes Firefox.

So, if you want to watch 3 short video clips in IE, then innertube is for you.

Seriously, though, I'm not sure why CBS bothered launching with such a weak product offering. Sure ABC beat them to the punch; however, coming back with this just makes ABC look that much better.
