Channels.com: Yet Another Video Aggregation(YAVA) platform launched today. Channels.com claims to be an all-in-one video guide where you can view clips and previews and find longer format videos from the best of TV, cable, and broadband programmers. Playlists, channels, bookmarking, video discovery, video clips are just some of the buzzwords they are talking about. What else? UGC? nana. More content deals? Yeah for sure. Will I watch? nana. Why? As compared to this, cable TV seems to be good enough. [via]

Threadless: The startup offering custom products like t-shirts that I had written about few months back has opened a store – ThreadlessKids.com. Nothing much to add about the new launch since the name gives out everything.
