I find three emerging, VC-backed but attention-coveting companies' products exceptionally interesting:
Vudu's product is a device that retrieves "thousands of movies" and sends them to living rooms for viewing without a computer or cable/satellite tv service:
Vidora.tv makes the Vidora Entertainment Browser, which lets you deploy its built-in video search tool and then group the results into channels that you create:
WeShow is a human-powered Internet video search engine that combs both professional and amateur videos, and then groups them into categories. It is building social networking applications:
Which of these seems most interesting to you, and why?
