With services like Aereo TV taking a similar streaming approach — and getting sued in the process — NimbleTV won’t have an easy road ahead, but the outfit’s willing to take its chances. The startup plans to launch its subscription-based offering to the public within the next few months, allowing future users to stream cable content to unspecified devices at any time and from anywhere on the globe — all thanks to Nimble’s cloud-based software. However, unlike some of its competitors, NimbleTV will give customers the ability to select channel packages based on personal preferences, though that’ll depend heavily on the TV providers going along for the ride.

It happens every December. You head home for the holidays only to be accosted by parents who need help fixing their computers. This year, it looks like Google will be lending a hand with its unannounced Teach Parents Tech series of public service videos. The Google-registered website teachparentstech.com still shows a “coming soon…” graphic and the videos remain unlisted on YouTube, but that shouldn’t stop you from sending the source link below to your parents right now. At the moment, we’re counting 54 cross-platform how-to videos covering topics as simple as as “how to copy and paste” and “how to attach a file to an email” to more advanced sessions covering “how to setup an email autoresponder” and “how to find cheap flights.” Unfortunately, even Google can’t explain to parents how to create a FAT32 hard drive partition. See what we mean after the break.
