On Gear Live: Apple Watch Pricing: Here’s what you’ll pay for Sport, Watch, and Edition models

Latest Gear Live Videos

A friend of ours sent us this video, taking a look at the history of storing media, starting from the old-school film strip. You know…those huge reels you used to watch Martin Luther King, Jr. videos on in elementary school back in the day? While the video is simple, we figure it’s an intresting look at the evolution of storing media. Check it out for a look how to create your 21st Century Shoebox.

[Thanks, Doug!]

Listen up, all you Gear Livers. Last week we told you about the robber with his own MySpace entry, in an effort to apprehend him somewhere between Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri. Sgt. Jarrad Copeland has told Gear Live that he has also posted on YouTube. Take a good look and if you think you have seen the alleged perpetrator, become a superhero and turn in the guy. We’d rather not meet him at our local convenience store and assume you probably would feel the same way.

YouTube logo In the continuing struggle with YouTube, Viacom, which is owned by Google, has taken YouTube to court for the astounding sum of $1 billion. Viacom claims that the site has shown 160,000 of its videos without express permission.

“Their business model, which is based on building traffic and selling advertising off of unlicensed content, is clearly illegal and is in obvious conflict with copyright laws,” Viacom said.
We’re thinking that this may be the first in a long series of lawsuits to get YouTube to respect the legal rights of copywritten material. The list will probably include such companies as GE and NBC. News Corp and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban have already begun legal proceedings against the media giant.

Prom QueenMichael Eisner, former CEO of Disney, has announced the formation of Vuguru, a studio that will develop what they claim will be a “slickly written, produced, and acted Web video about love, gossip and betrayal.” In other words, his investment company, The Tornate, will be producing a professionally made YouTube soap opera.

Eisner feels that although YouTube has won the first battle in Internet TV, real media moguls will ultimately win the broadband war. His first show will be “Prom Queen,” a who-done-it with daily 90-second installments beginning April 2. You will find all 80 episodes on Vuguru.com, Ellegirl.com (a “Prom Queen” sponsor,) Veoh, and of course, YouTube.

MADtv has done it again. If you were busy watching the last rerun of SNL with Drew Barrymore, then you missed Michael MacDonald’s clever impersonation of Steve Jobs and his latest creation, the iRack. More amusing (if that is possible) than their last outing, this skit takes a clever stab at American politics. Even funnier than this clip was the outtake shown over the closing credits that cracked up both the audience and the cast. We don’t want to spoil the great iEnding, so iEnjoy the performance now and try to catch that bit when the iEpisode repeats.
