Behind the Scenes: Dancing with the Woz!
^M00:00:06>> What's happening? I'm Brian Tong and
welcome to The Apple Byte. It's all the good and the
bad inside of Apple, so let's jump to the news. On
demand video could finally be coming to iTunes. Apple
insider is reporting the service called iTunes replay
will allow users to stream their iTunes purchases
directly from Apple service for playback anywhere.
Now, another aspect of this would potentially allow
the iPhone and iPod Touch to stream content as well.
There's a patent for the devices to stream from iTunes
over wifi and it was filed late last year, so you can
start putting the pieces together. Now this is all
good news to me with Apple possibly adding on an on
demand model to iTunes, so we'll see if this stuff
holds true. Are Apple and Google becoming BFFs? A
member from the android team reportedly says Apple
asked Google not to use multi-touch technology in the
android platform and they agreed. Now, the lack of
multi-touch was a point of criticism by a lot of
reviews, including Cnet's. The Venture Beat report
says Google wanted to avoid risking its relationship
with the big A, but are you serious? Does a company
like Apple really have you buy the gonads like that?
You're Google. Google. Google. Okay. In other
Apple/Google lover news, the big Goog's announced the
Google sync beta for the iPhone. It allows your
Google contacts and multiple calendars to sync over
the air to your iPhone using Microsoft's active sync.
If you already have an exchange account on the iPhone,
it will replace all that data, so beware. But it's
the first alternative to Apple's '99 Mobile Me service
and it's free. Now, you guys know we couldn't go
through the show without telling you this story.
Steve Wozniak will be on Dancing With The Stars.
That's right. One of the founders of Apple computers
that helped revolutionize the personal computer will
think entirely different and put on his dancing shoes
on March 9th. So you know how we do it here at Apple
Byte? We have some exclusive behind the scenes of the
Woz training with the help of the java Woz keys.
Let's roll the video. [Music] ^M00:02:45>> Wow! Whoo!
I had no idea but, you know, after seeing that, he has
a chance, like, a real good chance to go far. You
know, the show starts on March 9th, so I'll give him
until March 9th. So thanks to our friends at Jib Jab
that made that video exclusive possible. Now, let's
get back to some of the stories. Here's one that I'm
super excited about. Marvel Comics is coming to
iTunes. Marvel announced their intention to sell
in-motion comic books through the iTunes store and
motion comic books take paperback books and they use
animated panels, voiceovers and sound effects to
breathe new life into them. To me, it's like a whole
other art form and seeing some of my favorite super
heros like this is worthy of a major geekasm. I love
the idea. Now, do you guys like watching things that
jiggle? Let's check out the iPhone app of the week,
and this one's a personal favorite of mine. Now, you
guys need to check out Wobble. It's only 99 cents and
what you basically do is take a picture from your
collection -- so I'm going to take a Homer Simpson
picture -- and then I'll add this Wobble target and
I'll move it and then resize it to his stomach -- and
you guys can put multiple targets on a pic, so don't
worry about that -- but then, when I'm ready to view,
I'm going to press here and just shake my phone and,
check it out, Homers's jiggling like jello. And you
guys can use any photo that you want. Yes, I know
this is very immature, but it's too much fun and these
targets can be placed on anything. Anything. So try
it out and let me know what you guys think because
something had to bump I Fart off the top 25 anyways.
Now, we want to get you involved, so we're going to
keep having fun with this Woz story. Check out this
picture. Okay, guys? Take it in and we want a
caption from you and we'll read some of them next
week. So send your e-mails to the Apple Byte at
Cnet.com. I'm Brian Tong. Thanks for watching and
come back next time for the byte of the Apple.
