I am working on making my skinny legs bigger while wearing my Verizon Wireless energy cap

My brother told me the other day that I have the strongest chicken legs he has ever seen. So I decided to have a video taken of myself doing the leg press machine at La Fitness in Tampa. I wore my Verizon Wireless cap to also try and promote myself as the Verizon Guy in Tampa but the person taking the video did not do the best job. I was hoping by posting this video to Youtube, Qik, Facebook and this Blog I will get a lot of hits promoting my business selling Verizon Wireless Products and Services in Tampa, Florida.

video blogging using youtube

I want to do quick video post using my cell phone to take the video and then uploading from the phone to YouTube so it can be used on my Blog.

My options are I can take a short video now with my Blackberry Bold 9700 and MMS the video to YouTube. The video is sent as a multimedia message to YouTube and the anyone can see your video on YouTube. After the video is uploaded to Youtube it can be link to websites and or Blogs.

The issue I have is that a MMS video is only 30 seconds and the quality is not as good as the higher resolution videos that can be taken with the Blackberry Bold 9700. A normal video can be a few minutes long or as long as you have room on your media card.

I have a few other ways to upload longer and better quality videos to YouTube. First is to take a good quality video with the phone which is recorded on the SD card. Then take my SD media card use the SD adapter to upload the video from my laptop or desktop to YouTube.

Secondly is using my Motorola Backflip it let’s me upload videos taken with it directly to YouTube without the 30 second restriction. I am sure it has something to do with Google owning Android mobile operating system and Youtube. My first test was a 5 minute video I took waiting for the draw bridge to open.

I have told clients about that option with Android Smartphones but there success has been with videos under 30 seconds when the video is a few minutes long they have to have a WiFi connection for the video to upload.

I found a fix for that using Qik. I used to use Qik with my Blackberry Bold 9000 but now that I use a Blackberry Bold 9700 the Qik application on the 9700 is not supported. I still download the Qik application through my Blackberry browser and used it to upload the video that I already had taken.
I am going to caution anyone who does this, it is not supported.I know that I have to stop right after and close the application and then I do a hard reset but I am the Mobile Wise Guy of Cell Phones. After uploading the video I embed it into my Blog.

The video below was taking at Universal Studios on New Years Eve 2009 with my Blackberry Bold 9700.

high speed chase in Tampa causes innocent death

Last night my girlfriend was coming back to Tampa from Fort Myers. She call me to tell me that a SUV and a few police cars passed her on the Skyway Bridge going over a hundred miles an hour. She said it was like being in a scene from the show cops. This morning on Bay News 9 I saw a story on that police chase and someone got killed because the SUV ran a red light.
I would like to know what is the policy for police chases. This could have been my girlfriend who got killed because a teen stole a car and was wanted suspect for some robberies. What is more important catching a robber or someones life.
The Skyway bridge is two lanes and for six vehicles to pass by you going over a hundred miles an hour puts your life at risk six times. She saw the white Lexus with the suspect go by then she saw a few police cars and one SUV police vehicle speed by her.
Besides the 16 year old going to jail for vehicle homicide the police should be sued by the poor guy’s family who got killed.
I am sorry to say there must be a better way to catch criminals and not put more people at risk. A stolen car is a material thing that can be replaced a life is precious to many.
