Embedded Links on NAPP TV

I know there has already been some talk about this, certainly on NAPP TV's site as well as Dave Cross and Scott Kelby's blogs, but I just got around to watching this week's NAPP TV and thought this new feature was just cool enough to mention.

One of the new features of the show as they continue with the construction of their new set and the rebranding, is the new clickable links. Whenever a site or event is mentioned, a URL will show up as a lower third and an icon will appear in the upper right of the screen indicating that you can click and be immediately directed to that site without having to pause the show. In case you may be confused by this new feature, watch this week's episode for a clever tutorial told in the style of one of those 50's "Hey, You Down There!" training videos.

By the way, the episodes shot on the temporary set have been getting better and better as the Photoshop Guys pile on more and more pizza boxes, snacks, and equipment - including their biggest fan (bad, I know). As always, you guys are not only educational, but entertaining as well. Bravo!
