One of the many highlights of Podcast Expo 2006 was meeting Craig Syverson from Grunt Media. He’s brought some serious class and professionalism to this industry – things we can always use more of.
When Nokia gave me the N91 phone, I had to get the impression of someone so worried about quality.
And, since I just wrote that piece on free video hosting at Netscape, I gotta use this as my proof of concept.
It ain’t the best test of the phone (and I’m sure the Grunt would subject it to 18 different tests), but I figured I’d upload this clip so that people can see three things: A) the raw video clip as I pulled it off the phone (sure ain’t bad) B) I wasn’t joking about the free Netscape raw video hosting and C) video proof that the Video Grunt guy doesn’t run away when I enter the room.
Although I had problems with the WIFI element of this thing, I do like the phone a lot. I’ve been listening to some recordings on it for the last few days and like the form factor, interface, etc. When I head over to London to present at MacWorld in February, I’ll take the phone and a SIM card from Mobal and make it my Video Blogging, Podcast Listening, Phone Calling phone. Should be fun.
