Press Release: Nike and Apple Team Up to Launch Nike+iPod

NEW YORK—May 23, 2006—Nike and Apple® today announced a partnership bringing the worlds of sports and music together like never before with the launch of innovative Nike+iPod products. The first product developed through this partnership is the Nike+iPod Sport Kit, a wireless system that allows Nike+ footwear to talk with your iPod® nano to connect you to the ultimate personal running and workout experience.

Nike CEO Mark Parker and Apple CEO Steve Jobs unveiled Nike+iPod at an event in New York attended by seven-time Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong and marathon world record-holder Paula Radcliffe.

“Nike+iPod is a partnership between two iconic, global brands with a shared passion for creating meaningful consumer product experiences through design and innovation,” Parker said. “This is the first result, and Nike+iPod will change the way people run. Nike+iPod creates a better running experience. We see many more such Nike+ innovations in the future.”

“We’re working with Nike to take music and sport to a new level,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. "The result is like having a personal coach or training partner motivating you every step of your workout."

The new Nike+ Air Zoom Moire is the first footwear designed to talk to iPod. Nike plans to make many of its leading footwear styles Nike+ ready, connecting millions of consumers to the Nike+iPod experience. With the Nike+ footwear connected to iPod nano through the Nike+iPod Sport Kit, information on time, distance, calories burned and pace is stored on iPod and displayed on the screen; real-time audible feedback also is provided through headphones. The kit includes an in-shoe sensor and a receiver that attaches to iPod. A new Nike Sport Music section on the iTunes® Music Store and a new nikeplus.com personal service site help maximize the Nike+iPod experience. (more)

E3 2006: Skateboarding The Video Game Show

I'm in Los Angeles, CA shooting and uploading video for i4U News and 4-H Network News ASAP. This was shot on stage last night at a pre-show party with one of the reporters that I will be working with at the big video game conference.

The devil is in the details. So, far I've forgotten mics, batteries, business cards and audio cables.

Video bloggers claim spotlight / Online diaries looking a lot like television

Video bloggers claim spotlight / Online diaries looking a lot like television:

"Jay Dedman's life plays out in snippets of video, captured on a handheld video camera and posted on his online diary, Momentshowing.

A Manhattan subway bomb scare spurs him to post a photo montage of Sept. 11 and the days before and after. In another entry, he reveals his budding romance with fellow blogger Ryanne Hodson. Most recently, he documents their recent cross-country move from New York to San Francisco.

No longer satisfied with transcribing through just words or photographs in their online diaries, thousands of Web loggers, or bloggers, have turned to video blogging. In place of text, or sometimes in addition to it, "vloggers" use film clips. The clips last a few seconds to a few minutes and are archived one after another in chronological order, the most recent first.
They represent the latest means in catching fragments of life, made possible now that more and more people have access to high-speed Internet service and the necessary equipment, basically a camcorder, a computer and cheap, sometimes even free, software and storage services. "
