Hu-listic: Food for Your Brain

August 19th, 2009 by Jocelyn Matsuo Asst Video Editor

Each week, Hulu Video Editor Jocelyn Matsuo unearths hidden gems from the Hulu vault for her new column, “Hu-listic.”

Bored? Looking for something to do in the lazy days of the late summer?

Good News! Hulu is not just for watching, it’s also for doing. Series like Howcast, Howdini, and CNET’s Insider Secrets will hook you up with something to do, make or enjoy. And who knows, it may even keep your brain from turning into jelly.

These how-tos aren’t limited to games like playing horseshoes; there are skills like increasing your IQ and reading people’s minds.

In these times, saving money is king. Throw off your shackles to expensive brand names and learn how to make your own ketchup, your own mayonnaise, and even your own laundry detergent.

Got an iPhone? G4 will teach you to the way to jailbreak your iPhone, letting you do cool things like run multiple programs simultaneously. Of course, this one isn’t exactly legal, which they cover in this more recent snippet, “Jail for Jailbreaking Your iPhone.”

Afraid of going behind bars? Your iPhone can also be used to store discount cards and memberships. Check out this wallet-slimming hack for ways to save big without lugging around all that plastic.

Whatever you’re in need of, put that internet to good use: Learn a skill with Hulu.
