Live Streaming Video with iPhone Qik Application

Qik application demo by Leo Laporte. Leo demonstrates the new soon to be released live streaming application for iPhone. This will allow iPhone users to record video through iPhone 3G.

You can see from the sample it doesn’t handle fast pans too well. If you want to do a remote report from Macworld, you will be able to stream video with sound to the Qik website. It is easier to carry your iPhone than carry a video camera.

10 iPhone Tips – Getting More from Your iPhone

People who are lucky enough to have an iPhone know how fun it is to play with. Here are some some cool tips and tricks I discovered that you may find useful.

1. Tapping once at the very top of the screen while on the internet will take you back to the top of the window instead of having to scroll all the way back up. Nice time saving feature.

2. Set the font to the smallest size to read more in the internet window. Then pinch to expand a link to click it easily.

3. Post the equivalent RSS address into Apple’s RSS reader instead posting the full address of internet sites in bookmarks, and save that as your bookmark. You can quickly see anything interesting on your favorite site without downloading the whole page.

4. If the iPhone flags a word as misspelled that is known to be correct, cancel the correction 3 times and the word will be stored in the dictionary. 

5. Having a hard time placing the insertion point in a text documentsuch as email? If you tap once and hold, a magnifying glass will pop up showing you a zoomed in view of your words and cursor. Easily place the cursor wherever you want to make editing your writing very easy.

6. Hold the right button and the “Home” button on the front for about 6 seconds to reset your iPhone. Push the top button power it up. Shutdown by holding the sleep/wake button for 6 seconds.

7. Add a link to Yahoo mail in Safari bookmarks. Go there you can check ‘delete all’ to remove all spam e-mails. Takes less time than deleting them one at a time.

8. When a call comes in, press the sleep/wake button once to silence the ring for that call. Press the sleep/wake button twice to send the call to voicemail immediately.

9. Quicken punctuation by tapping and holding the “.?123” button, then drag into the punctuation key area. Let go when you’ve landed on the correct symbol. Typing a full stop turns 3 taps into one tap.

10. When using a volume or position slider, there’s no need to keep your finger on the nub in order to move it. Sliding is more accurate if you move your finger away from the nub on the glass after tapping and holding. You will have more control and can see exactly the slider nub.
