Mobile Media

After four days of playing with the new iPhone, Posterous, Twitter, YouTube and Mobile Me… here are a few thoughts.

Hard to beat the iPhone for audio and video if you want immediate and easy upload to YouTube. The stills are not as good as the Casio delivers. (Can you guess which took the photo below?)

Posterous is fun and easy but not sure that it gives me much that Twitter does not, especially since YouTube now talks to Twitter. There is something about seeing the media nicely presented, in-line on the Posterous page, but you have to get folks there.

I’m looking forward to seeing how Tweetie gets video from the iPhone to my Twitter stream.

After comparing the quality of still images emailed to my Mobile Me account, to those emailed to Posterous, the Mobile Me images look much better (despite the issues Apple has had with Mobile Me).

It all gets a little confusing with literally too many choices. But I do like being able to share the media quickly, even a some sacrifice in quality. I’m guessing I’ll wind up using Twitter, YouTube and Mobile Me for on-the-fly. The blog will get posts like this, after I’ve had a time to reflect and look more closely at the available media.
