S7 Adaptive Video Test

Monday, July 9th, 2012

If you are seeing this post, don’t think that I’m actually writing something important.

I’m not.

Instead, I’m just testing out Adobe Scene7’s adaptive video.

If this is working the way it is supposed to the following links will play videos on any device:

, In other words, you can run it on desktop, an iPhone, an Android device, or even an iPad and the video will play.

Let me know how it works.

Upgrade iPhone 3G to iOS4: It Runs Faster

Thursday, July 8th, 2010

The other day, I upgraded my iPhone 3G to iOS4, the latest software for the iPhone.  The bottom line: my iPhone 3G runs faster!

I had a lot of trepidation since the overwhelming number of reports I read said that the 3G ran significantly slower with iOS4.   New features are great, if my iPhone 3G is slow, I don’t want it.

Well, I’m happy to report that it is running faster for me.  While I haven’t done a side-by-side test, I have noticed that email, safari and the iPod all run faster on my iPhone 3G.  Even my favorite application, RunKeeper loads faster.

Best of all, the new features I’ve played around with are just awesome.  This includes the following:

  • Threaded Email – This is the grouping of emails by conversation (read: subject line)
  • Single Inbox for all my accounts
  • 5x Digital zoom for the camera
  • Updated Spell check

I’ve only had it installed for a few days.   I’ll report back in a week to see if anything has changed.

But so far, so good.
