9:42 PM - I got this new video editing program

Now I just have to figure out how to use it. I've been using Windows Movie Maker for a couple or so years but it was time to step up my game a little with Sony Vegas. I can often tell say watching vids on YouTube those who use Windows Movie Maker vs. those who might use a higher quality program. Today I'm going to present to you some tutorials I've found. It might help you too.





Beyond that I think I still want to find a book on this!

9:02 PM - A different direction

I've been promising a new direction for a while. Starting this summer there will be one. This blog will go back to being a photo/video blog. There will be no more blogthings, cartoons, or email spam. Random videos that I find off of YouTube will for me at the moment their status will be unclear. I haven't decided whether or not I will either continue to post those or not.

I would like to post more of my original pictures. Hopefully if I can get my cell phone good to go again I'd like to post cameraphone pics again. Those I promise to post good Flickr photos that I run across like I used to and original videos made by your's truly.

There won't be a particular emphasis on anything in particular. I want to keep things experimental I want to play with video editing and then display the results here. That'll be the only reason for it. Of course these will be vids of places I've been or what not.

For most anything else you can always go to It's My Mind, The Movie Cabinet, Unconventional Wisdom or The Sixth Ward. If you're still around thanks for dropping by and it would be good for you if you subscribed to this blog's feed you won't just get blog updates, but also photos that I will upload to Flickr in the future.

You can subscribe using the link contained in every post on this blog that says "Subscribe to this feed" or go down to the very bottom of the blog and look for an orange rounded square with "Subscribe to My Mind's Eye" right next to it to subscribe to this blog. To subscribe you can use such a program as Google Reader, Bloglines, or even MyYahoo to receive blog updates. I hope that subscription posts such as this will remain relatively rare. Thanks you for reading.

6:11 PM - For those of you with a Blackberry...

FOXNews...
“CrackBerry” addicts were looking for thumbthing to do late Monday as BlackBerry smartphones throughout North America went on the blink.

A major service outage afflicted users of the popular, addictive BlackBerry smart phones across the United States and Canada on Monday, wireless carriers said.

Officials with AT&T Inc. and Verizon Wireless said BlackBerry maker Research in Motion Ltd. told them customers of all wireless carriers were affected.

It was not immediately clear how many BlackBerry subscribers had problems, as some users reported being able to access their service normally Monday afternoon.

The BlackBerry service, which lets users check e-mail and access other data services on their handheld devices, has become a lifeline for many business executives and is increasingly popular among consumers with models like the BlackBerry Pearl.

There was no word what caused the outage or when service would be restored.

RIM officials did not return phone calls.

10:13 PM - Re-Vlog: The Southwest Chief



I already posted this video here as a YouTube vid (I just realized that all you got to do is scroll down from this post). I just wanted to use it again but this time I wanted to use the embed feature from Blip. If you want to download it here's WMV and FLV.

The first time I ever embedded a Blip.tv video over at It's My Mind was this evening. Ladies and gentlemen if you care, Super Tuesday is upon us!

7:23 PM - Motorola's wayward path

This is a mobile blog of sorts. So maybe I should do mobile news here. So from the Chicago Tribune today is a story about Motorola and how they may sell off their cell phone business...
It was shortly after Motorola Inc.'s Edward Zander declared "more Razrs" that the mantra started to backfire.

Zander, then CEO of the Schaumburg-based technology giant, was riding a stupendous crest in July 2006 when he was asked what was next for Motorola after the hit Razr mobile phone.

"More Razrs," he said. "It is something we are going to continue for quite some time."

Competitors followed suit, turning the thin, must-have phone into a commodity now found for free.

Nothing has been the same since for struggling Motorola, which said Thursday it is considering restructuring the company, including whether to separate the mobile phone division from its other businesses. That means Motorola, one of the most prominent names in technology, could exit the phone business it pioneered by seeking a buyer.

The problems for the tumbling phone division are complex, but one thing is clear: It was a fateful decision to exploit the Razr's success with a series of phones -- the Krzr, Rizr, Slvr, Q and now Razr 2 -- that mimicked the Razr's style but not its original cachet.

The company couldn't follow up with another breakout hit, market share and the stock price have plummeted, Zander left the top job in December and now the future of the company is uncertain.

"Motorola lost their way," said Karen Norkus, a senior sales representative for a Chicago Verizon Wireless store. "Customers started shying away from them because there was never anything strong after the Razr."

Customers also aren't clamoring for the Q smart phone, she said, noting that she sold three BlackBerry models on Thursday.

"Sales for Motorola's smart phone have gone down," she said, referring to sales at her Michigan Avenue store.

Aza Raskin, a Chicago software designer who recently joined the Mozilla Foundation, a Web programming concern, said Motorola seemed to rest on its laurels.

"If you talked to people when the Razr first came out in 2004, they loved how thin it was. It had a sexiness to it," he said. "It was groundbreaking but they couldn't follow up.

"So the question is, 'What comes next?'"

'Beholden' to carriers

And in Raskin's view, he would work on breaking down Motorola's reliance on providing U.S. wireless carriers with products to suit their needs, and focus on meeting consumer needs, as mobile phone-makers do elsewhere.

"The cell phone-maker is beholden to the carrier in this country," he said. "I know Motorola has a lot of cool stuff in its labs. I've seen it. But it must be frustrating because they have to make what the carriers want."
I like Motorola so they'd better get it together quick!
