Foodies Get Cooking with New litl Webbook Recipe Channel Powered by BakeSpace
BOSTON, Feb. 22 /PRNewswire/ — Things are heating up in the kitchen with the introduction of a new recipe channel, launched today by litl (litl.com) in partnership with BakeSpace (bakespace.com). The channel provides quick and easy access to more than 50,000 recipes for users of the litl webbook, an Internet computer for the home. It is available now at no cost to litl webbook users.
“The litl webbook’s versatility makes it perfect for the kitchen. While it can go online and be used like a conventional laptop, the 12-inch screen and keyboard can also flip around the hinge so the litl stands upright like an easel. This new “easel” mode makes photos, news, music, weather, video, Facebook updates, and now tens of thousands of recipes fun and easy to enjoy — even from across a kitchen,” said litl’s founder and CEO John Chuang. “We’re excited to partner with BakeSpace to change the way families enjoy the Internet from their kitchens.”
BakeSpace, a 2009 Webby Award nominee for Best Social Network, is a free online community where members post, search and swap recipes, share cooking tips, and socialize with other food enthusiasts. The site’s membership ranges from teenagers just starting to explore the culinary lifestyle to grandparents who want to catalog and preserve their treasured family recipes.
Babette Pepaj, BakeSpace’s founder and CEO, said, “We love the concept behind the litl webbook because it’s all about making it fun and easy to enjoy the web. With the addition of the new BakeSpace channel, the litl is now also a great tool for cooking enthusiasts. If you enjoy spending time in the kitchen, the litl webbook could be your ideal computer.”
The litl webbook’s channels transform online content to make it more useful and entertaining. These channels complement a familiar web browser experience for active, “lean forward” use with an all-new “lean back” mode for passive web enjoyment–from across a kitchen or on a large-screen television, for instance. Users can easily create channels for many popular websites or select from a set of channels custom-designed by litl, including Facebook, The Weather Channel, Flickr, Shutterfly, and now, BakeSpace.
Technical information for independent developers, potential partners, and others interested in developing their own custom channels will be announced shortly.
Based in Boston, litl is a new kind of computer company. The company was founded to make the web more enjoyable and entertaining for everyday consumers. Small and personal by design, we invite you to meet us and learn more at litl.com.
