I have what I think might be a really neat idea....mabey it has already been thought of, but I thought I would post for some feedback. They make harddrive DV capture devices that start recording to the drive when you hit the record button just like it would a tape.....except it records to a firewire drive. The only problem with these drives is there cost, upwards of 1 grand for decent record times. Would it be possible to write softwear for the iPod to repond to the commands of a DV camera? It already has a 40 gig drive in side with a firwire interface. I think it would be easy to hack or modify the ipod to do this. If not, apple could make the video iPod do this and market it to broadcast producers on the go. Right after they record on it, they can watch it.....on the same device. Mabey I am the only one who thinks that would be neat....but even iMovie users would like the timesaving features it would have....plus they would have an iPod. Sounds like a winner when you consider the mac as the digital hub. Also, whatever happend to iPod home directory idea that would carry all of you files with you that was suppost to be launched with Panther?
