This week I found out about the Microsoft Desktop Player which is in beta at the moment. This tool can be downloaded here
The idea is that Microsoft will make available loads of content easily searchable from your desktop. In addition to that however it will also allow the content such as webcasts, podcasts etc to be downloaded to your desktop for offline viewing. I think this is fantastic for mobile people like myself who often only get a chance to watch things like this whilst on a plane travelling somewhere 🙂
Give it a shot – and tell me what you think.
