Plug an iSight into iPod and record video?

i really dont believe you could ever possibly just plug in the isight into your ipod and have it do anything.  the ipod doesnt have the software nor the hardware to be able to handle video and audio data all at once.  i mean really…. the ipod cant even record! (officially at least, and even unofficially isnt it only like 6 seconds or something on the new ones?)

The iSight connects using a firewire cable.

ABC News: Music Labels Threaten to Sue Net Users

I agree Dan, but Mac Gladdy is right. Besides, we are anonymous, despite what a stupid lady who knows nothing about the internet thinks. Remember everyone, multiple firewalls, routers, hubs, and switches are our friends :) I agree Rob. I hate the RIAA. I’m a visual artist (digital and traditional) and I offer my stuff online for people to see. Anyone is welcome to take a picture of my work or an image on their computer as long as they view it privately or show people, but if they try to push it as their own and get money for it that is stealing. The people who are about the art itself don’t care. I don’t think incubus cares and guess what, they have great music. The only people who are afraid are the people who produce crap music whose records wouldn’t be bought if they could be downloaded. There are people that if I downloaded their music I’d have to buy the CD. I’ve done so with incubus and RHCP. They don’t even seem to care if they’ve been downloaded in fact it probably makes them happy. Oh and the RIAA negelcts the fact that their profits go down probably as much as they raise CD prices each year. I agree Clive, thats entirely the reason why they’re going after people with large collections. Music sharing will probably get more underground than it already is, but I don’t think we’ll see it die.

iPod 15GB for $314 shipped

At this price -  worth the wait, IMHO. Frustating sure, but nearly 100 bucks off! Apparently Dell gives certain discounts if you wait too long. Still, really frustating I am sure.

I think thay are after the people with 40+ GB’s of Mp3 sat on thier harddrive for everyone to feast on. I doubt very much if those people actually have a CD collection of any note as most of their music is on Mp3. I’ve heard of jokers with 200GB of Mp3’s, i doubt if they have all the CD’s to go with them. Anyway, have you used kazzaa recently it’s full of porn and viruses.

My personal opinion on these mp3 monkeys is that they really are not music fans in the true sense of the word. ” I am big fan of the beatles but all my beatles albums are on mp3”. Music fans, appreciate the band and their music. if you are a music fan you would buy the CD, as not all artists are mega stars some are just a few sales away from going back to working in walmart, it’s those guys/girls/bands who produce great music and so I will buy the CD.

Admittedly the mainstream is so full of bloated overhyped rubbish there isn’t much I’d buy from the top 100. Lets not scream about overpriced CD’s when you can get very good buys online. hey I am based in the UK and you guys in the US don’t know the meaning of overpriced CD’s!

some of you appear to have very short memories of the early 90’s and the mac clone disasters and the company nearly going bust.

Apple should and will keep focused on what they doo best producing great computers with great software. I’d be happy with that as for phones and ipod camcorders people let’s wake up and smell the coffee, they just don’t need to be done.

iPod 15GB for $314 shipped

I am receiving my 30 gig from Dell today - so UPS says. Paid for 2 day delivery and am into the third day - 4:55 PM. Ugh.

Ordered it back in May during the special. Wait is frustrating but the shipping is even more so.

I was not notified it had shipped. I just happened to call them to ask how long.

Glad to learn this about Dell because I will think twice before I order from them again - will need to plan a l-o-n-g trip or something before delivery.

iPod 15GB for $314 shipped

Ordered directly from the Apple website, only to find this hot tip about 45 minutes later.  Once painless call to Apple to cancel the order and 5 minutes to order from Dell saved me $85.  Yes, I will likely have to wait a little longer to get it, but to me it’s money well spent.  Thanks for the fantastik heads-up.

iPod 15GB for $314 shipped

Yeah, that’s the tricky part, Dell always has great deals.

But I see an awful lot of people who ordered a month ago and still have not gotten theirs.  I may have paid more but I have had mine for three weeks.

I have never been a good at waiting.

Hey, maybe apple is going to make airplanes too!  And toasters and baby carriages and pinatas and deck furniture and bug repellent and ski goggles and double sided tape and extension cords and deodorant and latin text books and blah blah blah . . .

why don’t we stick with what apple should be doing instead of what they could be doing?  Sure, you could plug that camera into the ipod.  You could also use the Firewire/ac adapter from the ipod to plug your iBook into the wall . . .if you wanted it to explode . . .

Is it me or does it sound like he’s speculating about the ability to connect it to the iPod.  Anyone know what connector it uses?  Firewire?

ABC News: Music Labels Threaten to Sue Net Users

They pretty much HAVE to go after the people who share their MP3s, for a few reasons.

First, they most likely have to prove intent, and if people are sharing songs, that’s intent. Downloaders, on the other hand, might well actually own the album they download—I know lots of people who are too lazy or technologically inept to rip a CD—so they’re legally entitled to have an MP3 copy of a CD they already own (I wonder if this applies to people who own an old LP or cassette of a song and download an MP3, since it’s a different sound source and audio quality).

More importantly for the RIAA though, is the fact that if they scare off people with big collections of MP3s, then there’s less music available to download—I’m sure they hope to choke off the supply.

Washington Post: Businesses Battle for Song Sharers

15 year old in a bentley, that would be mini-rapper bow wow, who everytime i see him I ask myself ‘why’s that kid not in school!”.

Unfortunately it was the record companies greed when they forced CD’s onto us by deleting vinyl records for the major artists. Funny thing is here in europe vinyl is growing stronger, which is to do with dance culture over here. In fact HMV in manchester has expanded it’s vinyl section and vinyl Lp’s cost more than CD’s now but still they sell. No self respecting dj uses just CD.

Another point, if I used a pay service to download would i share it, like hell i would go buy your own like i did!

the quality of music is probably at such a low, why would anyone want to buy the CD for oh so many untalented manufactured boy/girl bands and wannabe a badass rappers surrounded by booty shaking girls but talking loud and saying nothing. Final note isn’t it funny how rap rhymes with crap

The accountants have taken over the music industry and they are driving it over a cliff and p2p just gives it a bit more ummph to get there quicker.

I hope the RIAA gets majorly screwed, I hate them.  They overcharge for cds, and further more the publish plain ol’ crap music, music sucks nowadays.  If they wanna come after me for “stealing” music, the are more than welcome.  THe only thing us downloaders have stolen is the RIAA’s pride.  THat is where they get the term, we are not stealing music, we are sharing it, plain and simple.

Plug an iSight into iPod and record video?

On the other hand, if you could plug your digicam into the ipod and then using the ipod controls empty your CF (or whatever) onto your ipod, that would be awesome.  Furthermore it doesn’t seem like it would require extra hardware for firewire at least.  Unfortunately most digicams use USB.  And the current USB spec doesn’t support plugging two hard-drive-like things into one another.  (This is being corrected, however.)

Plug an iSight into iPod and record video?

It sounds cute to plug your high end web cam into your lurvely music player, but (1) it’s stupid (2) it’s ungainly, camcorders have a lot of controls in nice places, etc, etc, and (3) does Apple making a camcorder really pass the laugh test?  Just ‘cause the ipod rocks, doesn’t mean that Sony is now Apple’s plaything.  They’d get killed.

Tremendous deal - I upgraded/downgraded from a 20GB “old” ipod to the 15gb with this deal. Look like delivery will take a couple weeks…

Strange, it seems that they are going after the very people most of their income is coming in from. Just jail these cash-cows and see the profit plummet even further.

Plug an iSight into iPod and record video?

iPodlounger, that claim about ipod and isight seems to be a little far flung to me. I would prefer Apple to make an attempt at connecting my firewire CF card reader, and transfer my digital pictures to the hard disk, first. This only involves short bursts of data transfers, without the consistent bandwidth requirement.

How could they even think about video recording with steady stream of data?

Don’t get me wrong, I think it is a great idea, and thenks for sharing it. I just think Apple should take baby steps. Like on-the-go playlist on older ipods. That would be bombastic!

Plug an iSight into iPod and record video?

Why would apple ever build a cell phone?  Why would they ever build a camcorder?  There are about a million cell phones and camcorders out there for a much wider market than apple seems to be able to reach . . .read the spec information about the iSight, they’re struggling to make it sound like the best camera out there.

Attaching it to an ipod would suck . .. it would be about as good as a gameboy camera . . .

MAYBE . . .MAYBE if WiFi was EVERYWHERE would an apple portable videophone make sense . . .
