On-Demand Akimbo Shows Promise
USATODAY.com – On-demand Akimbo shows promise USA Today did a nice introductory piece on Akimbo last week. In his article reporter Edward Baig reports that “Akimbo doesn’t make its content playable on a PC. (It may do so eventually.)” Davis Freeberg and I met with Akimbo’s VP for Marketing, Jim Funk, down at Akimbo earlier today and Jim confirmed that Akimbo will be available on Media Center PCs early this Fall. This addition of Akimbo to Media Center is not dependent on the MCE 2005 Update and it will be part of the Online Spotlight. Stay tuned for more from Thomas Hawk and Davis Freeberg on Akimbo shortly.
