  1. YouTube has introduced a new way to watch videos that could encourage more users to visit the site from their living room. Called YouTube Leanback, the feature automatically plays videos in full screen mode and in a continuous fashion. When one video ends, another immediately begins to play on its own, allowing people to sit back and lose themselves in viral memes and silly pet tricks.

    Looks cool, but it needs to be polish some more or tweaked.

    Not tried it but means I will have to go through my Subscriptions and remove all the crap I subscribed too before using this. I subscribed to one channel that under my nose also sub me to something like 30 others. WTF!
