I love web cams! One of my favorite is the 46th & Broadway in Times Square where the world never sleeps, here is that link for your edification; It has a little microscope with a + in it down in the lower right hand corner that allows you to double the size of the viewing window.

What does that mean to you? How about being able to watch collector car
auctions while in progress?

While perusing the latest email from Mecum Auctions, I saw a Big Red Button that said, "Connect To Live Auction", so I clicked on it and lo and behold, a live auction did appear! Here is the link to that;, be forewarned, you need a broadband connection to see it and it may be over by the time you read this.

"So", you ask, " What does this mean to me?" Maybe nothing right now, but this technology, like every other technology is expanding daily. My favorite Techie says that computers double in speed and intelligence every two years.
As a matter of fact, the technology is already available for you and me to
watch TV on the Internet; the big TV syndicates just haven't found a good
enough way to make money on it yet.

Kruse and others already have Internet options for high dollar absentee
bidders. Not that it bothers the high dollar folk, but maybe it could save gas
money for the rest of us, if they do need the rest of us! Internet viewing may cut down on ticket sales for lookee-lous so maybe they will have to charge for the Internet Viewing? As always, you can figure out a lot of stuff by just following the money!
