A YouTube phone? MySpace for cookers= Bakespace, top 10 videogames of all time!

Today has been crazy…so I’m sorry for the late post!

Tech Love

So the iPhone’s out…so we need some retaliation baby! Out comes the announcement of a YouTube phone by LG!

“LG said the model would allow users to upload, view and share video clips without the need to use a computer. The 3G phone will be offered first in Europe in the second half of this year.

Apple received a lot of attention earlier this year when they announced a deal with Google to deliver YouTube video natively onto the iPhone; in comparison the LG deal is far more interesting. Essentially users will be able to record videos on their mobile phones then upload them immediately to YouTube through a streamlined interface.”

This is a totally awesome for people that are at events, conferences… the only drawback is, think of the increase in the already huge amount of useless content that is on YouTube, makes one shudder and scream for joy at the same time.

Do you enjoy cooking or baking? Want to find a social network so you can share recipes and get feedback? Look no further!!! It’s BakeSpace!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can do Ramen…..

  1. Not sure about this YouTube phone… uploading/sharing video is not rocket science. What about just uploading via MMS or Email and viewing over WAP? I guess if YouTube wanted more control over it they could release a JavaME client (to run on most handsets) but introducing a dedicated YouTube Phone sounds like a marketing trick to me.

  2. Yo Simon!
    WAP is pretty slow at the mo, or is that just Oz? But I guess bundling through MMS/Email is a good option but involves the extra step of unpacking it to upload it to the live site…. the YouTube phone does seem to have a valid point in the functionality of being able to directly upload to site via phone to online world availability. There is a lot of marketing involved as it isn’t as you say rocket science to be able to upload files via mobile, hehehe and I’m sure LG may have had some competition on their way to scoring the ‘YouTube’ handle.
    Glad to hear your awesome views again on here!
    Talk soon!

  3. Hey dan, yeah I hear ya- I’m assuming the YouTube phone would use the same data channel as WAP anyway, so would be just as slow. I think lots of handsets already allow you to select a video file and “Send via MMS” or “Send via Email”, so if YouTube just set up an auto-submit thing that grabbed the source number/address from the message and then whacked the video up on the corresponding user’s profile.
    btw: that mobile monday thing wasn’t bad- kukan launched their podmo server for downlaod -pretty cool

  4. ah the man with the answers, MMS or Email could be the go then! Although handest users are usually super unsavvy hehe Damn missed out on that event…I thought podmo was already downloadable? Is there any PR or news article out about it? I just haven’t heard much of a buzz about podmo apart from seeing random station units…
    Cheers

  5. hehe yeah 4sure. Now you can download the “podmo free zone server” (http://www.podmo.com) that turns your PC into a bluetooth base station and hooks in to a central podmo server over the net to push out mobile content. i like the idea: the java client already has jabber with VOIP on the way, so potentially peeps in cafes with a podmo server can chat and call for free. they’re going to keep running the show on the first monday of each month so ill keep you posted for the next one
