OVERRATED You Tube

4 Jul

Many People have absolutely No Idea about what is called “New Media.”
“New Media” is a changeover from the Prevailing Mainstream way of delivering Program Content and News. Much of this New Media is Independent, rather than controlled by Broadcast Networks and Studios.
At one time, Terrestial Television was carried into one’s home or school. It was live or film. And if you didn’t tune in at 8:00PM ET, that was it. You missed the show. There was no such bird as “Video On Demand.”
Prior to Television was Radio, operating in the same way as Television.

The Web changed all of that. So did Digital Cable TV and Video Recorders, prior to The Web or Internet. The Internet is the Land of Experimentation in Content Delivery.

Who Came First? Vimeo or You Tube?
If you said Vimeo, you must be a Whiz Kid, for it is in November, 2004, when Vimeo came about on the Island of Manhattan.
In March, 2005, Dailymotion premiered in France, ahead of You Tube. It was in April of 2005 that You Tube went into Beta.

Things changed even more when Apple Introduced The iPhone and Google introduced Android to Smartphones and Internet Appliances such as Tablets.

And now in this era, one can telecast live via the Web from a Smartphone to anywhere in the World on the web, without having
to wait to upload to Video Sharing Services. People were watching on Veetle, Ustream and Bambuser from Ukraine, and from the Middle East.

In fact, an Opera Rehearsal was being live telecast on Veetle in January, 2014 and People actually watched on the Web. It came from Forest Hills here in Queens. Live Internet Television including Replay, had arrived.

It took the 2011 Video Coverage of The Knights of Columbus International Free Throw Basketball Championship on Vimeo, Dailymotion, Blip Networks and You Tube, to show that these events don’t need You Tube to get viewers. Dailymotion was 4 To One over You Tube with Vimeo even higher than that. Blip Networks had higher 1st Round #s than all of the 4 Rounds of Coverage on You Tube. Yet to calm the “Soccer Moms From The Underworld” and their “Little Darlings”, a You Tube Feed was ordered and enforced with threats to the Producer on a Regular Basis. Their Egos, actually surpassing the Ego of one Mr Alex Rodriguez, are such that their “Little Darlings” will approach the Viewing Numbers of Justin Bieber, merely for shooting Basketballs from the Foul Line.

You Tube is so “2005”, hence Yesterday’s Tech.
You Tube, Overcrowded and OVERRATED!

“Catholics In The Media” Snowed Out

6 Mar

I was looking forward to the RC Diocese Of Brooklyn’s “Theology On Tap” Session, hosted by Deacon Greg Kandra, at Manor Hofbrau on Yellowstone Blvd in Forest Hills. The Subject was to be “Catholics In The Media.”
Unfortunately, it snowed pretty hard all day. I emailed the Brooklyn Diocese around 11:30AM(1:00PM in Newfoundland).
It was 3:35PM(5:05 PM in Newfoundland), when I got the news that The Event went the way of all this Snow. It was cancelled.

But, I had plans to live web telecast it, either on Bambuser or Veetle. Since Bambuser is more News Oriented, the Next Event will be on Bambuser.
You Tube is so “2005.” Bambuser & Veetle are “Here & Now”(Hic et Nunc).

Couldn’t it snow with A-Rod at the plate?

Tomorrow Is The Porting To A Higher Level

22 Jan

Full Service on Sprint’s Virgin Mobile USA will be switched from the Kyocera EVENT, lower end Android 4.0.4(Ice Cream Sandwich) Smartphone to the Higher End LG Tribute Smartphone, running on Google’s Android 4.4.2(Kit Kat Bar), also on Sprint’s Virgin Mobile USA System.
What is interesting is that Sprint’s Virgin Mobile USA Prepaid System, with a great set of plans at a Reasonable Price of US$35+NY State and City Sales Tax, making it US$38.11, gives me unlimited data and text, with 4G LTE Speeds for Data for 2.5 GB, and 3G Afterwards. I did get the LG Tribute Smartphone for $65.32(NY State and City Sales Tax Added). But, LG is a Higher End Android Smartphone and Tablet+I get more screen with this phone. Kyocera is now putting out higher end equipment.
As far as the Kyocera EVENT is concerned, it has worked well. It will continue to be used, mostly as a Small Tablet, so it won’t just collect dust.
For the Longest Of Time, I used Apple’s iOS and Mac OS X, as well as Classic Mac 9.1.1 to 9.2.2, but I do enjoy using Android, which is a form of UNIX called LINUX. Microsoft should just shut their Windows and stop letting in all their Viruses and Bugs, though Windows Phone 8.1, may be an option down the road. I even considered it, this time around.
Like the Apple iPod Touch 4G, the Kyocera EVENT was a proverbial workhorse. Hey, it was used a load of times to bring live video web broadcasts over Veetle, Bambuser and Ustream. That couldn’t be done on the iPod Touch 4G, because Wi Fi Networks were unavailable. But, on the LG Tribute Smartphone, Video will be available in 1080p HD, which are broadcast standards for many of the Major Broadcast Networks in the USA, Canada and Europe. Imagine Live Video in HD 1080p. The Picture will almost jump out at you.
The New Era begins shortly. It should be memorable.

The 24 Hour Blackout & New Plans

19 Jan

All it took was 24 Hours of Isolation in the Digital Age to convince me to fix a problem on this most rainy of days. I was achy today with all this rain. A day like this can suck.
Then I went to CVS Plaza in Kew Gardens along both Metropolitan Avenue and Hillside Avenue to grab something to eat as well as to reactivate my Mobile Phone on Virgin Mobile. With that done on a most rainy day, I went to Mass at Our Lady Of Mercy on Kessel Street in Forest Hills, where I wanted to reorient myself.
I ran into Joe The Music Director. We talked. Now, the Modernistas are getting the Upper Hand there. He was playing some “Schutte Hits”, which, on a Scale of 1-10, scored a -5. It seems that the Pastor is Henpecked, trying to make everybody happy, hence a resurgence of what My Most Dear Friend at Our Lady Queen Of Martyrs, would call “Vomit, Barf, Puke, Bleep, Gross, Sick, Stupid and Pathetic” in regards to Appropriate Church Music. She is also not fond of the reading cycle of the Gospel and Epistle, called by her as “ABC Crap.”
But, for 24 Hours, despite paying for my Virgin Mobile Phone Service, only to discover that the service was interrupted for want of a code to be entered into the phone, I found things to be out of whack, as Yesterday’s Monsoon Like Rain was predicted for Today, 01/19/2015.
Later, I shall activate the new LG Tribute Phone, 4G LTE, which Broadcasts in HD 1080p, over Veetle and Bambuser. Now if Joe can come up with a concert or two, the Cultural Purpose of the Veetle Service will be worth it. Otherwise, there might be some Irish Music from Babylon in HD 1080p and Pool Tournaments from Moose 1642 in Maspeth, Queens.
The idea of Live Tridentine Latin Mass from St. John’s Cemetery Chapel is another idea, whose time has come.
It will be, in regards to the Tridentine Latin Mass, a chance to counter all of the Protestant Evangelical Services now being webcast on Veetle. And that is a grand way to evangelize the Tridentine Latin Mass. It needs exposure. It would be done once or twice per month, full length, in 1080p HD.
I think that the Pool Tournaments will be on Foresthills1 on Bambuser+any breaking news.

Boy Scouts To March In The Square Peg In Round Hole Pride Parade In NYC

29 Jun

Okay, this is something where new language is employed to confuse people into thinking that something is Good, when it is not Good.
A Square Peg simply does not easily fit into a Round Hole, unless modification is made of the Square Peg and Round Hole.
Pride, in this case, leaves out the qualifying word, which is Gay.
Gay, in this case, does not connotate Joy or Happiness.

The Ultimate in Irony is occurring, with Boy Scouts marching in the Gay Pride Parade. Ditto, two rather Radical Roman Catholic Church Parishes are marching as well.

I just want to puke.
