YouTubeHD-verticalAcquired a new Full HD camera and want to post your masterpieces to YouTube, but they don’t support the Full 1080p experience? Now it will (starting next week), because YouTube has announced the move from 720p to 1080p video support, and now you can watch HD on those great essays and insightful video commentaries YouTube is famous for.

It’s been a long time coming, as many users have clamored for the feature to be supported for awhile now, and they’re finally listening and allowing 1080p videos to be posted. Not a ton at first, but within a few months we expect half the videos posted to be HD, always a trend we support here at Screen Sleuth.

More details on the change here (along with pics).

earth_hear_041808Wouldn’t it be cool to view the Earth from up above, in HD no less? NASA is offering that very service to people here on Earth Day to celebrate the occasion.

NASA has been doing this for a years now, so it’s become a fairly regular event. There’s a NASA channel on some satellite/cable systems you can tune into, or you can catch the YouTube video here if you don’t happen to have that channel available.

The views are truly breathtaking to behold, proving once again that the Earth is a wondrous place.
