iPhone 3.0 - Video Upload
We’re coming up on the anniversary of the iPhone 3G announcement at last years WWDC. It is understandable therefore that rumors are already starting to circulate about the next revision of the iPhone hardware.
Macrumors via Engadget have a nice screen shot of a video upload feature that isn’t live in the iPhone 3.0 beta but is included in the software. The current iPhone hardware doesn’t support video capture (at least not up to Apple’s standards) so this could point to some pretty nice new features coming when the new hardware ships.

Is it just me or is this just plain ridiculous? The same buildings can be video’d and photographed from any street corner by anyone looking to do harm. As for privacy concerns. You’re in the street people… You should have no expectation of privacy because YOU’RE IN PUBLIC.. Not to mention probably being video’d in greater detail from any number of security cameras.. Find something worth while getting concerned over would ya?

Apple fanbois the world over are crying into their iPhones over this. Click the link then watch the video. I dare you! It’s over 4 minutes long. I lasted 29 seconds. This is just wrong in so many ways.

I got excited about this idea until I read “and of course all the timecodes on all the mobiles sending video have to be totally in sync.”… Going out on a limb here but that be a small problem for this work anywhere other than in the lab!

Ahhhh. I love the smell of marketing BS first thing in the morning. The title of this piece is misleading as to almost be a flat-out lie. It impliesthat this software lets you edit AVCHD directly. Of course it doesn’t as editing compressed video without first decompressing it in some way is impossible. The piece then goes on to reveal that in fact all this app does is convert your AVCHD files to their own decompressed intermediate MOV format which you can then edit. So where’s the news, because iMovie and Final Cut Pro both deliver the exact same functionality without the need to spend a dime. FCP actually gives you choices over which intermediate format is best suited to your project.
I declare this to be un-news and not worthy of anybodies $129! (Pftt!)
