    Catfish and I have made our Symbaloo web mixes which are basically bookmarks in picture form available for everyone to use. Anyone is free to start a web mix on their own and even use portions of other public web mixes so that your own bookmarks in picture form are personalized to your tastes.

    Here are some great web mixes for Google TV to get you started:

    Google TV USA Adult - Symbaloo
    http://www.symbaloo.com/mix/googletvincanada
    Google TV Content - Symbaloo

    The idea is to take from these what you like and make your own web mix and then share it here. We want you to make tiles of your favorite media and add them to your web mixes. The more tiles we all make the better it is for everyone using this.

    Here is a quick demo:



    Here is a tutorial:

    The more people who create web mixes on their own the faster this project will get going. If you want to add a tile linking to content that we have not yet posted then you are free to create your own tiles by simply right clicking on an empty square. Now enter the web site link and upload a screenshot of a representative image.

    All Symbaloo users can make their own web mixes and even take/give tiles from other web mixes. It is in the free spirit that I now open up my web mixes for those who want to take what they will and use what they like while ignoring what they won't use.

    Tips for getting the images just right:

    Do a google search for an image you want such as project free tv icon which yeilds:

    https://www.google.ca/search?q=ehow+...w=1366&bih=643

    Now take snapshot as close to a square shape as possible when you find an image that is that shape or close. Trial and error and you will get the best results. Right click on an empty tile in your web mix and enter the url and upload your pics. Publish your web mix and share it here. We can all give and take and personalize to our interests our own symbaloo pages.

    Here is a link to the free screenshot program I was using: http://getgreenshot.org/downloads/

    I prefer to leave out the text and let the images/logos represent themselves.

    Here are some interesting web mixes to give you more ideas :
