Verizon FIOS’s Widget Bazaar Guide

July 27th, 2009

By now, most of Verizon FIOS’s got the option of the Widget Bazaar. But just in case you haven’t bothered to look at it or have taken the time to use them. I feel obliged to point you out a post by Sarah Perez over at ReadWriteWeb wrote a step by step guide of the experience she had while setting it up. This  may be a deciding factor for those still to get the option or still not convinced to use it to try them out.

Facebook and Twitter on TV: Hands-On with Verizon FiOS’s New Widgets

Verizon FIOS’s Widget Bazaar Now Out

July 15th, 2009

Verizon gets into everything, don’t they?. The last being their own TV Widgets offering called Widget Bazaar. This is a supplemental service for Verizon FIOS users and you will start with 40 widgets that include the obvious social ones  like Twitter and Facebook or even online media content from blip.tv, veoh and dailymotion.

There are several limitations:

1.-Only one user profile can be used (multi-profile support to come)

2.-No Widget Platform planned at the moment, Verizon will provide whatever widgets they think you should get. no schedule specified for updates.

3.-No YouTube and No Hulu of course

The other limitation is that unlike Vizio, the widgets are read only since you don’t have a proper remote to interact with the widgets in a full way. this could or could not change in the future based on the success of the Widget Bazaar. but expect having to pay a fee to change of Remote if the option is added.

A good supplemental service for those already lucky you to be able to have FIOS’s (unlike me, that my triple play service sucks compared to that)  and that you can ask or active now.
