Video for the Video Idiots?

When it comes to making videos, I'm one of those who just can't do it. The editing software seems like it wants me to get frustrated. I rarely take any videos because I know that no one, including me, will want to see it. However, there seems to be a possibility that this might change. Enter Magisto! It seems as though the folks who made it had me in mind. It's an iPhone App that does the video editing for you. How do they do it? Who knows...and who cares? As long as it gets done, I'd be happy. I've been doing some experimenting with it and it seems to work. I'll be uploading a video in the next few days.



Mobile App Showdown at CES!

The CES mobile apps showdown this year at CES started with some upbeat music, and the mood was certainly expectant as people lined up outside the N255 conference room where it went down, but personally the apps didn't really deliver, IMHO. There were some cool apps in the running, no doubt. My personal favorite was the Magisto video enhancement app, which did turn out to be a winner. The show itself was somewhat poorly conducted as demos were frequently interrupted with glitches, which made me actually feel sorry for the exhibiters on more than one occasion. Jon Hein and Gary Dell'Abate of the Howard Stern show did a great job doing MC work, and the giveaway intermission was also great, but I guess I expected the top 10 apps to be somehow cooler...
