Last Saturday night marked an interesting point in the development of the Internet as a multimedia delivery system. We were invited to the offices of Point of Presence Company in Seattle to watch the first full-length feature film (called Party Girl) played live over the Internet via CU-SeeMe. I doubt CU-SeeMe will become a major source of movies via the Internet (since it's more designed as a point-to-point system), but proving something can be done is important because it raises the bar for future attempts. A real-time technology for video that works like RealAudio is probably the next step, and then I'm sure we'll see some truly interesting uses of video on the Internet. [ACE]
How to Make an iPhone Screenshot
Want to take a screenshot of something on your iPhone or iPod touch? Press the Home button and Power button briefly at the same time, and an image of your screen will be saved to the Photos app (and will sync with iPhoto when you next connect). Don't hold the buttons too long or your device will either power down or reboot.
