Embedding Video Example

This is a BMW Internet ad directed by Guy Ritchie from YouTube.

In order to embed video on your own blogs, here's what to do::

  1. Go to a video sharing site that has the option to embed videos on your site/blog (e.g., YouTube)
  2. Copy the code from the "Embed" window (not all videos allow embedding), using control-c or ⌘-c (Mac)
  3. Go to Blogger and log in
  4. Create a new post
  5. Go to the EDIT HTML tab
  6. Paste in the code
  7. Go back to the COMPOSE tab for WYSIWYG formatting

Amazon Kindle Review on cNet

I'm interested in seeing where this technology goes.  The cost is $400 and it uses an EVDO (high-speed cellular data) connection.  The e-ink screen is black-and-white and a color screen won't be available for at least a year.  It was one of Wired Magazines top 10 gadgets for 2007, as well as one of its biggest heartbreaks.  I wonder...Is this something you would use?
