• VLogoSphere - Video (web) Logging Sphere (of influence)
The evolutionary realm of the merging cultures and businesses of consumer electronics, internet and television industries for the benefit of all global citizens in the twentyfirst century. This blog is about what's up in this realm. It's new and it's hip. Next it will change the world in ways few of us can imagine and none of us can safely predict. But global democratization of information access, citizen journalism and the BlogoSphere are changing everything in very short order.

CBS-Rocketboom Part of CSI-"Killer" 2.2.06 by Jerry Bruckheimer
Last night on CBS' #1 show on all of TV, CSI, Amanda Congdon appeared in a FAKE Rocketboom from above the Las Vegas Strip warning the locals not to go where two were recently murdered in the same evening. You can't buy this kind of publicity. Yes it's not a REAL Rocketboom episode. And neither are the murders REAL. This is another classic moment in the evolution of Video Blogging and product placement publicity. Congratulations Amanda and Andrew Baron of Rocketboom and thank you Jerry Bruckheimer, Executive Producer, for placing them inside an episode.
This is from an EyeTV2 HDTV source recording and is Video iPod compatible.

NBC Most Happy Fun Exciting Buzzy Thrilling History Lesson
Steve - "...and you kinda get video for free as a bonus."
Continuous Caption: Handheld TV - New iPod Plays Video
Anonymous Consumer in Apple Store - "I've actually been looking for something that I could play video on." Really? Steve had no idea...
Omar Wasow, Technology Analyst - iPod has gone from an early adopter technology buff market to a Mainstream Mass Market phenomenon now a part of our culture.
Alexis Glick, this story's reporter, says you have to watch video on the 2.5 inch screen which is not necessarily the case. You can watch on your TV and you can watch on a video headset or external portable TV with a bigger screen - can you say light FLAT screen?.
Alexis - "Their new test is to find out if people will buy video they have to watch on a two and a half inch screen."
Steve - "There is no market for video on the go today. So we're going to have to create it."
Let's be clear Alexis. THIS IS NOT A TEST. There is no downside for Apple to add video playback capability for no more money and 50% more space at the $299 price point. You get a free video with every album you buy. We Video Podcasters have a way to reach the consumer like never before. And you broadcasters have a way to sell shows after they air in a new window between original air and rerun then DVD. You can Video Podcast the Today Show WITH advertising included for FREE and sell that market to your advertisers for a small premium or others who will pay less for VidPodcast ONLY ads.
The revolution will be Video Podcast and is being vlogged as you speak. You do NOT have to watch videos on the 2.5" screen. There IS A GIGANTIC MARKET for video on the go today. And Apple is NOT going to have to create it. What Apple is doing is providing the solution to a long standing challenge. And that is huge. Kudos to Apple. I love Apple. But the market has been getting PREGNANT with anticipation for this solution for years. Remember ARCHOS? It is like an iPod only too big and heavy with a minimal Mac interface.
I will be very surprised if Apple will be able to keep up with demand for these new iPods before sometime next summer, IF THEN. I think there is going to be a waiting list from here into next Spring at the soonest. It will be a case of capacity incapable of meeting demand for a long time.
Affordable technology and our new inexpensive broadband internet distribution system has just now fallen into place. So it's really the synergy of pent up demand meeting new affordable technological advances - not Apple creating a market or doing a test.
Thanks to Al Roker for ordering his last night. You the man Al.
Matt Lauer's close - "I know it's going to be huge. Absolutely. Everything they do is huge right now." You took the words right out of my mouth Matt.

CBS Early Show Pitches TV Shows For Sale, Falling Apple Stock & A Way To Lose Your Sight
Interesting no one seems to understand the iPod has had video output since the introduction of the iPod Photo long ago. And let's not forget video goggles you can wear to have a large screen experience out of that little iPod.
CBS iPod Video Reports Ignore Vlogs & Video Podcasts
Steve didn't even mention there are already thousands of video podcast posts in the iTunes Podcast Directory to help sell the reason to buy a video capable iPod now rather than until movies are for sale next year which Jeffries & Company analyst Adam Benjamin posed is a reason consumers may not buy one yet.
This is the first of three broadcast reports I am posting today with comments about each one. Details of Steve's Presentation will follow tomorrow with a PDF full of links to Apple's many pages of descriptions.
