Oops, Here’s the post for Y. I had it in draft for a bit while looking for the video clip.
Why Y? Because it looks like the firewire symbol. Wanna see what the SFDaddy blog was going to be in the beginning?
This one’s cute, but was a test to see what we might have been doing a long time ago when everyone thought they should create a VLOG.
This was recorded in 2004, so it’s too late to continue teaching my babies how to use a computer. Red2’s video debut.
[[Note to re-upload 10-year-old video correctly this time.]]
Yeah, for video. It’s what I do for a living. I wonder how many people really do any video editing of their home movies at all. I’m an editor for a living and I find it completely over whelming to get in their and start cutting the video down.
I have hard drives now brimming full of ballet and interviews in front of statues of Walt Disney.
I don’t share too many videos of my kids online, (silent thanks heard from around the room), I don’t understand all the people who do. I wonder what we’ll be doing with it all in 20 years.
Last year we upgraded the Tivo to HD and then the Tivo people came out with their new snappier Premiere model. I’m grumpy with them for that, but do you know what else they did? The new one can completely be controlled over your network with your iPad, but not the Series 3, which is what we have.
The “old” HD version can still be controlled in many ways from the network and your computer and even via the internet… so some limited controls via ye old iPad, but not like the Remote app from Apple. That experience for swipping through your music and movies on the AppleTV is absolutely beautiful.
The Tivo interface is still light years beyond most of the other DVRs offered by the cable and satellite people. I haven’t seen anything I like better, except Netflix’s instant browsing features on the NEW AppleTV.
Here’s the parenting part: the girls will watch a program and then when it’s over they turn the set off if there’s nothing else recorded in the Kid’s Zone. Since the machine is typically recording something most of the time, they don’t channel surf.
It’s a gift of Time for them. Do you DVR?
