They played this really funny video at the Closing Keynote of Blogworld and New Media Expo 2010. I couldn’t stop laughing! I especially loved the part where Mark Malkoff was distracting Miss Destructo while she was blogging. How did she keep that straight face?! Watch and you’ll see! ;) Good times at Blogworld!

iPad Unboxing

My iPad arrived today at 1pm via UPS and I’m so happy! The apps look amazing on this device that it’s very hard to go back to the iPhone.. It’s been a busy app-testing day for me! Here’s my iPad unboxing video.

Again, very sorry about my April Fool’s joke! It really was just a case that I carried around. I also took it to the Apple Store the night before iPad Day and asked them to fix it. :)

Interview with Traci Toguchi from Lockergnome

Filed under Interviews and People

It was such an honor to be interviewed by the lovely Traci Toguchi at the It Won’t Stay in Vegas CES Party. We met earlier this year in Hawaii at the [re]think: Hawaii conference! It’s always nice running into her at these geek events. ;)

The original blog post by Chris Pirillo made me blush! Thanks so much for the kind words.

I do have one correction to make. The AR.Drone actually runs on the wifi network, not bluetooth as I previously thought. And this is the Hello Kitty iPhone game that I enjoy!

This video was created using the very cute easy-to-keep-in-your-purse Creative Labs Vado HD Pocket Video Camcorder, 3rd Gen and the always useful Joby Gorillapod Tripod!

Many thanks to Albertech.net for the video and photo!

iPhone App Review: Qik Live

January 16, 2010 by  
Filed under Links and Resources, Reviews, Social Networking

Qik LiveName: Qik Live (iTunes)
Written By: Qik.com
Category: Photography
Price: Free

Size: 3.3 MB
Requirements: iPhone
Version: 4.40
Rate: 4 out of 5 Stars

It’s been a long wait, but now it’s finally available in the iTunes app store! Qik Live debuted on December 24th, 2009 – just in time to capture those special holiday moments! Qik Live is a live video streaming app that allows you to share pieces of everyday life experiences with your friends and family as they happen via your cellphone / iPhone.

Creating a video is quite easy. If you’re a first time Qik user, a short registration page will show up when you launch the app. It’ll ask you to create a new username, password, and if you want your location to show when you stream. The latter option can be changed when you start streaming or in the settings options.

Once you fill out the form, you’re ready to start streaming live video! Click on the red button at the bottom and your video is live! You can also record an offline video if you like. And the video will be uploaded when your toggle the online button. The Qik app has two parts to it. The top display is what’s being recorded in your video. The bottom display is where your live audience can chat with you.

To change the video options, tap on the video display. Options include Mute, Toggle chat, Set permissions (Public or Private video), Edit video details, Share Video, and Send email.

In the “Share Video” option, you can post your video onto various social networks including Facebook, Twitter, 12seconds.tv, Brightcove, YouTube, Tumblr, or your contacts. To activate these social networks, you must first log onto Qik.com and add in the credentials. The newest share option is the ability to “add contact.” You can select contacts from your addressbook and an email will be sent to your friends/families telling them where the link to your Qik video is.

More options are available when you log into the Qik.com website. You can update your settings and add additional social network options to your account. For example, you can set your account to send an automatic tweet when you start streaming, or have your video uploaded to 12seconds, or YouTube by default.

The user interface is beautifully done and the app is very user-friendly. The are a few minor improvements that I’d like to see on the Qik Live iPhone app though. I would love a landscape mode where the chat overlays the video and the record button is on the side. Holding the iPhone sideways seems more natural to me because it’s similar to holding a camera.

In addition to the mobile app on various mobile platforms, Qik also comes to the desktop called Qik-in-Touch. Qik-in-Touch is a desktop air app that will notify people of when live videos happen. It’s very fun to see what your family and friends are up to, the moment it happens, right on your desktop!

Although Qik Live is new to the iTunes App Store, it has been supported on various phones. See the supported phones page for more information.

Some things to remember before using Qik are:

  1. Recording videos with the app uses up a lot of battery power.
  2. Set your privacy settings accordingly.
  3. You can connect with your audience and talk to them over Qik.
  4. There are multiple ways of using Qik – have fun, be creative, and enjoy!

Overall, Qik is a great app that lets you experience what your friends and family are doing no matter where you are. That way you never miss an important moment again. Qik Live for the iPhone is freely available in the iTunes App Store.

Gmail Video Chat

Filed under Daily Ramblings

Calling on Google Talk Video Talking on Google Talk VideoI finally got the chance to test out Gmail Video Chat today. I wanted to the other day, but the option didn’t appear on my account until earlier this morning.

I first tried to call @evansims, but his speakers were muted, so he didn’t hear! So that’s me waiting by the gTalk for him to pick up.

@davecurlee saw my tweet about testing Gmail Video Chat. So we logged on and played with it.

@resawu also helped me test it out for about a minute! But homework was calling her. ;)

And my college friend, Jimmy, also showed me around his new place via Gmail Video. That was pretty neat.

Video is very clear in the little chat box. If you hover on the top left and click on the arrow, you can maximize the video! Pretty neat. It may be a little pixelated though, depending on your monitor size. Your video on the bottom right side can also be moved around.

It is somewhat of a bandwidth and memory hog, but an amazing addition to the web app nevertheless. I can’t wait to see this implemented into the Google Talk client version.

To install the plugin, go to the Gmail Video Chat.

ps. @davecurlee‘s chihuahua’s name is Leia!

I wonder how it compares to the Flip Mino. I’m already sure it’ll blow away the Creative Vado, which is the same price, and not HD. If anyone has one, please let me know how you like it!
