I can't believe there's not a Pipeline thread. If there is, I missed it.

Anyway, I finally got it going, but I have two questions (for now):

1. Any way to make it full scrren - I hate this tiny picture.

2. And as Spitfire has shown, it can be capped. HOW????

Thanks.

Houston:

Full Screen ? Don't think so.

Capped, how ?

1. Hold down Shift + PrtSc (Print Screen key) then release.
2. Start / Run / Open: mspaint / OK button
3. Ctrl + V
4. Click on Eraser one time
5. Click on Select tool one time
4. Use Select tool (dashed square symbol) to select portion of screen to cap
5. Click Edit then click Copy
6. Click File then click New then click No to Save dialog box
7. Click Edit then click Paste
8. Resize paint document with little black squares on the corners.


NOTE: There may be other much easier ways than this, but probably less fun!
This is just a suggested method that works universally on Microsoft Windows.
Please give feedback if any problems with the steps outlined above.



Enjoy.

CNN.com could soon offer local U.S. news.

In a strategy shift, CNN, known primarily for national and international news, is expected to announce a deal that will allow it to offer more local news on its Web site and, it hopes, land a bigger slice of the fast-growing market for local online ads.

The deal, with Internet Broadcasting, a privately held Minneapolis-based company that publishes the Web sites of 70 local TV stations, allows CNN to use local stories from any of those sites, and vice versa. As part of the deal, CNN is also taking a minority equity stake in the company.

From a consumer perspective, the new arrangement won't look much different from what now exists on the sites of CNN's chief rivals in online news, MSNBC and Yahoo. Like those sites, CNN.com will include local news among its top stories of the day, and surfers will be able to move back and forth between national, international and local news.

The big difference will be in the business arrangement that CNN has struck with its partner. MSNBC and Yahoo syndicate stories from outlets such as the Associated Press and Reuters. CNN, by contrast, hopes that the content-swap arrangement will drive up user traffic both on CNN.com and the local sites, allowing all parties involved to charge higher advertising rates. That would theoretically pave the way for Internet Broadcasting affiliates to expand their national ad sales.


Also from the article, a redesigned website will be rolled out during Summer, and all live and archived video will be FREE.

Houston, you could have saved your money by holding out a little longer. CNN Pipeline is set to become a free service in July. According to the article, you'll be entitled to a refund though.

The free-lunch-on-the-Internet crowd has won another round.

CNN is giving up on the idea of charging for CNN Pipeline, launched in late 2005 as a $25-a-year service providing four "streams" of video with footage of breaking news.

CNN plans to redesign and repackage its Internet offerings, said spokeswoman Jennifer L. Martin. Plans call for "folding" Pipeline into that new format on July 1.

I'm watching CNN Today and it just hit me - not only do they not run World Sport, but every time when the sports is suppose to come on they run a PowerPoint show (weather and some headlines) instead. Now why in the world would they not run sport reports on Pipeline?

An open question to any staff member of the CNN web team.

When will you people update the CNN International TV page on CNN.com? You still have the old title cards for programs like World News, Your World Today, Business International, World Report, etc.

It looks totally unprofessional to have the old show graphics and logos on the site some 15 or so months after the new look was introduced.

More on the new CNN.com which will be launching soon.

CNN.com is planning to implement a bold redesign this summer that will see the site utilize Web 2.0 technologies like Ajax while also opening the site up to links from competing news sites.

A public beta of the new site is expected to go live sometime this week, with the official relaunch scheduled for July 1. David Payne, CNN.com's senior vp and general manager, said the site will allow users to access multiple aspects of big news stories on a single Web page, including text, video, photos, related stories and user-generated content.

"The cornerstone of what we are trying to do is achieve integrated storytelling," said Payne, who described the planned changes as "taking the house down to its foundation."

Because the site will use Ajax technology to facilitate these changes, Payne expects that CNN.com's page-view numbers will take a hit (sites that use Ajax can refresh or change content without loading a new page), but he believes the industry is beginning to gravitate to alternative metrics such as time spent.

Perhaps an even bigger shift in philosophy will happen later this year when CNN.com will begin linking to other news sites, even competitors.

When they say its free, do they mean it is free to the selected 30-40 countries or all over the world? Because Pipeline is not available in my country.

Maybe it's because they don't have the rights and permissions to run video and photos of sport events on Internet, only those they put on their web site. Contracts of image broadcasts are very strict.

This is from a couple of days ago. "Impact Your World" special report and initiative on CNN.com.

As people seek more and more ways to respond to news around the world, CNN Worldwide has created "IMPACT YOUR WORLD," an initiative developed to empower its global audience to make a difference in response to the stories they see. After a quarter of a century as the world leader in news and information, CNN Worldwide takes a leadership role in helping viewers and users effect change.

"After catastrophic events such as the tsunami in Southeast Asia and Hurricane Katrina, we saw that people no longer wanted to be passive about the news, they wanted to respond to the news," said Jim Walton, president of CNN Worldwide. "In direct response to that demand, CNN developed the 'IMPACT YOUR WORLD' initiative as a destination focused on empowering every member of our audience with the tools and resources to act the moment they connect with a CNN story and wonder, 'What can I do?'"

Launched in conjunction with Today's World Refugee Day, "IMPACT YOUR WORLD" extends across all of CNN Worldwide's networks and services, directing the audience to the initiative's hub at http://www.CNN.com/IMPACT and external resources. Online, "Impact" buttons on select stories will link people directly to resource pages showing how they can help.

Slip up.
Now, their cutting off Pipeline today:

Thank you for being a CNN Pipeline subscriber. We hope you enjoyed your
free access to Live Video over the past month.

We wanted to let you know that the Live Video you have been viewing on
CNN Pipeline will be available free on CNN.com beginning July 2, 2007.
CNN Pipeline broadcasts will be permanently discontinued on June 27,
2007. Then, beginning July 2nd, all CNN.com visitors will be able to
access live video right from the CNN.com homepage. You will still be able
to access our free video on demand clips on CNN.com throughout this
period.

So - no CNNI for a week and will they even bring it back? I am so disgusted with CNN. The US channel is a joke and they can't leave Pipeline alone. I guess when LKL is your highest rated show it doesn't say much for the people runnung the zoo.
