Techcrunch has a post about a very funny  spoof of the Windows 7 Party videos. The story and spoof are very timely as today is the launch day for Windows 7. You’ll find embeds of both an original corny-by-accident Microsoft video and the spoof.  It’s definitely worth a watch.

HighlightCam: Easy Video Surveillance

HighlightCam.com is a very good site if you are interested in basic video surveillance. You can easily set up a simple security system using your existing webcam. The key features include

- motion detection

- email alerts

- free and paid levels of service

- reduces hours of video into seconds containing only the important bits

- view videos from any internet connected computer

The free version of the service is quite worthwhile. The main advantages to upgrading to the paid version, currently $8.99 /month, is that it  gets you video storage for 2 weeks (up from 24 hours) and the ability to download recordings. Other than that you also get no ads (they are unobtrusive anyway) and higher resolution video.

HighlightCam is definitely worth checking out. I use it to monitor my home when I’m out of town.
