After a bit of delay, Technorati finally unleashed its relaunched VLog, BuzzTV. What is it? A guy reading the top items from their website. In other words, they’ve has brought the internet and broadcast TV together, and formed something with the worst aspects of both.
Like a blog, it features minimal accountability or fact checking, low production values, slow downloads, and a host who is an ugly couch-potato. Like TV news, it caters mostly to people too dumb or lazy to read, is hosted by vapid talking heads, and makes you sit through ads and product-placement B-roll about dangerous wonder-drugs before getting to the real news about all those dead hookers in Ipswich.
