Pathpartner Skype 720p and Ittiam 4-way video chat get TI OMAP4 demo

Texas Instruments told us they were more interested in showing what their OMAP processors could do than telling us, and the TI booth at MWC 2011 was bristling with vendors showing what they'd coaxed out of OMAP4 chipsets. Video conferencing companies Pathpartner and Ittiam shared a stand with their offerings, the former pushing 720p HD Skype calls, the latter four-way video calls in which only a single participant need have an OMAP4-based device.

Sky believes that with their 3D technology, which is apparently realistic enough to handle something like this, they can cure people of their fear of spiders. That's right -- by having digital spiders crawl out of your TV, they hope to make folks enjoy the little creepy-crawlers a little bit more.

Sky planning dish-free IPTV Sky+ service

It used to be straightforward: satellite TV, like that from Sky, comes via a satellite dish, and cable comes via cable.  Now, according to some leaked documents from Sky UK, it seems things might not be quite so clean-cut anymore.  TrustedReviews have heard that Sky UK are ramping up to offer their Sky+ service "through a new set top box supplied by Sky connected to your Freeview aerial and broadband connection", that would use IPTV distribution rather than the traditional dish.
