Karaocasting

Sounds a lot like podcasting for karaoke, doesn't it?

We'll find out soon enough.

On August 10, 2007 Comcast filed a trademark application for Karaocasting. There's really no other info in the app since Comcast uses the same description for goods and services for almost all of its word marks.

We do know it's not a new karaoke-on-demand service since Comcast has offered that option for a while. We also know it's not karaoke-in-a-restaurant-streamed-online-and-then-possibly-shown-on-VOD since Comcast unveiled that site (Ziddio) and Times Square restaurant (Spotlight Live) on April 6, 2007.

Could be one of two things.
  • Maybe Comcast will offer iPod-compatible downloads from Ziddio.
  • More interestingly, maybe future Comcast set-top boxes will have an audio input port so that you can sing at home, mix your own tape, and make a podcast to share with the world.
It could also just be a marketing campaign. On the same day Comcast filed documents for five other word marks that sound more like marketspeak than a new product or service:
  • Triple Slanguage
  • Tomphonery
  • Televisiphonernet
  • Phoruption
  • Quiz-Jacking

Hi Nice Blog .Free online bingo cash is usually played in the halls. The rules vary from place to place. In some places the game is played with a bingo card that contains 24 numbered spaces and a free space . The numbers are assigned randomly to each card.
