This morning, we hung out with some fabulous Apple fans at the downtown
Apple Store in downtown San Francisco. The two lines of Apple faithful
extended around the block, and almost every eager patron had their hands
filled with free Krispy Kreme donuts and Starbucks coffee. We went down
the line to ask a few of the loyal patrons about the first thing
they'll do with their iPad. Some were incredibly eager to take home the
package and rip it apart, while others were more impressed with how it
will function as a developer tool. Take a look at the video for
all the highlights--there's even a special appearance from iJustine.
With iPads making their way to eager consumers as we speak, content
providers are hustling in an attempt to ditch Flash video in
favor of HTML5 in an effort to make
their websites more palatable to the users of Apple's iconic new
Twitter feeds and Facebook are replacing web browsing and email for
many of us, but seasoned social networkers know the revolution is only
just beginning. In fact, the next phase may already be underway with
Knocking Live Video and Ustream Live Broadcaster, two video-streaming
tools that put the power to share live video with friends, family, and
followers in the palms of your iPhone-clutching hands. Both apps offer
fun features, impressive tech, and our favorite price tag: free! But
which one should you use?
On the heels of last week’s patent application that featured a front-facing camera on an iPhone-like device, some further digging into the iPhone OS 3.2 SDK reveals that video chatting may well be on the way.
