Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSWith over 10 million viewers in 10 years, Livestream helps people produce content easier. They do it on two levels, hardware and software. With the Mevo as a simple start, and their multi-camera switchers for a more advanced system, including the HD550 – a laptop-sized device.

Switcher Studio Uses Your Phone for Facebook Live Cameras

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSThis is not a new idea, but it is a newer innovation. Systems have tried to incorporate mobile video in their production switchers, but there has normally been a fail, especially when audio is involved. Switcher Studio has worked out that problem and turned their program to all mobile devices. I first saw this program at SXSW when a one-on-one interview was being conducted. Two phones, one iPad (for switching the video content). The phones would connect to the iPad via WiFi, then the iPad would not only swap out the video, but also add lower 3rds, graphics, and pre-recorded scenes. I grilled Switcher Studio on the latency issues. The biggest issue being lag from a phone to the audio track being supplied. I was assured that as long as audio came into the iPad via Lightning or headset, it will...

Amazon Resistance Radio Headquarters

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSAmazon Prime Video is a great service for cord cutters because they offer not only movies and TV shows to watch, they also create their own award-winning content. Shows like “The Man in the High Castle” or “American Playboy”. Amazon Prime Video is also creating documentaries like “Long Strange Trip” as well as bringing back favorite shows such as “Twin Peaks”. The Resistance Radio took over the Market & Tap room in Downtown Austin, TX during SXSW Interactive.

When you registered and got your wristband, you could enter and start the challenges – starting with a phone booth task. But don’t worry. The tasks were not difficult to do (e.g. who was the...

Say What You Will, Porn Makes the Internet Go Round

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSBrought to you by GotoMeeting – Try GoToMeeting free for 30 days – No CC needed: GoToMeeting.com/techpodcasts. Porn. It’s a 4 letter word. Maybe you would prefer “Adult Entertainment”? Like it or not, this little enterprise seems to drive our lives. We push it away, and it comes back even more. No matter what we do, the black sheep seems to re-arise. Is there any way we can control the beast on the internet? Adult Entertainment has been around as long as people can remember. Whenever there was a medium for it, someone was there to try and make a buck. In the musical “Miss Saigon”, the Engineer used the girls so they all could benefit from American soldiers. Early movies had their share of Back room films. An old, worn out film of a young lady dancing around the stage with...

Geekazine and Friends 2009 Predictions

If you like this article, please DIGG it. Thanks! In Part 1, we looked at last years predictions. The numbers weren’t too shabby. This year, we’ve expanded the list to anyone that wanted to contribute. And Contributions I did get. 250 of them. I spent most of Friday night and subsequent morning filtering the list to a couple pages worth of information. We have CEO’s, CTO’s, Marketers, Podcasters and even a Psychic helping us with this years list. Of course at the end of the list I will be adding my 2 cents worth for 2009 on Page 2.  So without any further ado, let’s get started.

Did the Geekazine 2008 Predictions Come True? 0

Did the Geekazine 2008 Predictions Come True?

Wow. It was about a year ago I asked for people to send in thoughts as to what to expect in 2008. I also made some Technology predictions. But the real question was – How far off was I? This is actually part 1 of a 2-part story. This first part reviews the predictions I made last year and how far off I was. Part 2 will have this years predictions, including predictions from CEO’s CTO’s TechPodcasters and even a Psychic. So without any further ado, let’s pick apart my idiocy from last year: OLPC will have some growing pains. The first part of OLPC will be the easiest. Maintaining the machines will be the trick. Microsoft coming onboard will muddy the water, but they might be able to do things like offer a better support network to third world countries.

When Streaming TV and Movies Go Mobile – Joost and iPhone 1

When Streaming TV and Movies Go Mobile – Joost and iPhone

As a kid I had this really cool TV. it was a Bentley with a 5″ Black and White screen and ran on AC power or 9 “D” batteries. It went all the way up to Channel 83, so if I hooked it up to the cable today, I would get the Big 10 network, MTV, and Disney. Yeah, Black and White, but sometimes you have to go old school. Joost is no Bentley, but they might have finally pulled into a niche here. Last week they made an iPhone app for the Joost service. It’s not the best thing in the world, but it’s better than nothing.

Suicide of Abraham Biggs on Justin.tv

Abraham Biggs was a troubled teenager – at least that is what the news stories out there state. Abraham had attempted suicide before. But now he had an International audience – And a cheering section. It’s a travesty. Some of the viewers might have at first thought it was a joke, but it became all too real. In a first-hand account, he thought it was a joke. When the viewer realized it was less a joke and more reality, he tried to contact authorities. After multiple attempts and a couple hours later, the Broward County Police enter the home of Abraham. Jaws drop here.
