…It’s Website Wednesday: YouTube Remixer?

YouTube’s Remixer is a web app that, in collaboration with Adobe’s Premiere Express, allows you to “create remixes by combining video clips, photos, and music with graphic effects, and transitions.”

    Sometimes, instant gratification video is just the thing you need.
    If you’ve ever uploaded from your cell phone, wished for an easy way to add titles and transitions, or just wanted to remix your own videos, Remixer is a great place to play. It lets you assemble your new video in an easy drag-and-drop timeline, and then publish it right back to YouTube. Your original videos will stay exactly the same.

Though you’re not going to be cranking out Academy Award wining films with this thing any time soon, it will be good to see a little flair added to the “hey, look what my new camera phone can do” videos that are currently proliferating the ‘Tube. Blair Witch 2, here I come.

…It’s Things Thursday: CallWave Visual Voicemail?

CallWave Visual Voicemail

CallWave Visual Voicemail is a free service that lets you manage your mobile phone messages on your computer. It’s designed to work with virtually any cell phone, and on virtually any network, and sends copies of your messages to your email inbox, where they can be played, paused, replayed, saved, and deleted. If you’ve ever lost a message after the 14 day period that your phone company gives you, this service is for you.

If a widget is more your style, then check out the Visual Voicemail Widget for Apple, Yahoo, and Vista. Each one alerts you to incoming calls, and gives you call details like the length, and when it was received. Give CallWave Visual Voicemail a shot, and think outside the Phone (or iPhone in this case).

…Mini makes custom billboards?

Mini Billboard

Mini is known for being small, but their advertising definitely goes big. Their latest creation is Motorby, a program where interactive billboards will welcome select Mini owners with a personalized greeting. Users of the Motorby program submit information about themselves to Mini, and receive a special key fob in return. Then, when they drive under specially equipped billboards in Chicago, New York, Miami and San Francisco, a message lights up saying things like “Nice Hair Harrold!” or “New Shoes Suze?”. The program ought to be fun until someone hits a pole trying to take a picture of their personalized message or someone hacks it to say something a little less family oriented. Given the choice though, I’d gladly take one that put up the words “Get Off Your Damn Cell Phone” every time I drove by.
