Plug an iSight into iPod and record video?

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.

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.

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 . . .

You would still be liable under copyright law in the fact that you place them online enables other individuals to copy (download) your music.

In fact if you look at the small print around your CD label a portion of it say’s the following ” Unathorized copying, hiring, lending, public performance and broadcasting of this recording prohibited”. And by recording it means it covers each individual recording on the CD, so you can’t get away with it by just placing one or two tracks off the CD online! You can your pick as to what you are doing placing music online for download.

They could actually pursue people in the UK, via the BPI ( UK’s version of the RIAA).

“Slap the iSight onto a 15-gigabyte iPod and all of a sudden you’ve got a hard-drive-based camcorder”

That was my first thought when I saw the iSight announcement.

But does anyone think the current iPods are capable of compressing and storing video on the fly? Since they pulled the audio recording capability with the 2.0.1 update, I’m not hopeful.

MiniDiscs WERE underrated for a long time.

I live in the UK so know nothing about US law but I’m not sure how this would work.

Surely if you are ‘offering’ your collection for download you aren’t stealing anything (as long as you have the original cds), it would only be people downloading from you are stealing (or am I missing something here)?

iTrip Video

It depends on the car.  I noted cars with internal antennas (no visible antenna outside of the car, obviously) don’t seem to be too keen on the iTrip, where as cars which have an external antenna come in nice and crisp.

The only problem I have had was having an extremely piercing high pitch ring come through the speakers of the receiving system from the broadcasting iPod.  However, it is fixable.  What I noted was, you need to tune into a clear frquency and adjust the volume control on the actual ipod until you hear no more ringing, then you can adjust the volume on the receiving transmitter. 

It ultimately depends on the receiver and that is understandable due to different standards through manufacturer.

So play around and you too will find that the iTrip is a remarkable thing for a mere $35 USD.
