Editing movies with the iPhone

So, I finally broke down and purchased an iPhone 4.0 this weekend.  For a couple of years now, the household has wanted to move away from the Blackberry Pearl to the iPhone, simply because the iPhone is more media friendly than the Blackberry.  Don’t get me wrong, the Blackberry is fine when it comes to instant messages, and email, but surfing the web, taking pictures, and trying to listen to podcasts are like pulling teeth.

Avid Announces Major Shift in 2008 Strategy in Response to Customer Feedback

avidLogo.gifI found this bit of information interesting. According to Avid, the company will not have a booth at NAB 2008. For years Avid has had one of the largest booths at the show, and it was positioned at the entrance to the Digital Media portion of the hall ready to great convention goers as they rushed into the hall. For the last couple of years, Apple was located across the aisle, and each year the Apple booth got bigger and bigger as Avid’s share of the marketplace began to slip.

The company also announced that it will not have an exhibition booth at the 2008 National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Convention, but plans to be in Las Vegas next April to meet with customers.

That statement seems like a contradiction in terms until you remember there are all sorts of smaller conference rooms specifically for companies to meet on a one on one or small group basis. My guess is the number of new announcements might be slim, but the parties and events off-site should make up for that and keep everyone friendly.

This is certainly a strange turn of events…
