iPhone: One-Person Film/News Crew?

18 06 2007

How long before your iPhone becomes your one-person crew now that beta version of YouTube Remixer is available to edit videos on the fly and post? I’m surprised a new version of iLife didn’t take the advantage of Apple’s being ‘friends’ with Google. Looks like Adobe will kick ass in the online video and audio editing department (YouTube Remixer is powered by Adobe).

Imagine this: You’re minding other people’s business when a text comes in. Some shit happened on Lincoln Blvd. by Hampton Diner – whaat? Look up Google Maps…jet over there, capture video with iPhone camera, edit it on the fly, caption it, preview and publish it on your YouTube Director account…right about when the local CBS truck is unloading their camera. On top of that, they’ve to wait till the Cialis commercial ends to start breaking the news.

Now that’s citizen journalism…or if you look at the worst of it…citizen stalkarazzi.
