The answer: They all leave you scratching your head about at least one of their features.
For instance, how many people know what the progressive scan feature does on their DVD player, or the difference between the IDE and SATA cable in a computer? On one hand, not knowing a DVD player’s video setting might leave you with a less than pleasurable viewing experience. But more seriously, not having the basic knowledge of the inside of a computer during a breakdown could leave you with a non-functioning pile of circuits and hardware—costing you hours of lost productivity.
At AudioFile Solutions, we certainly don’t want to add to the myriad of people blogging about the everyday functionality of the iPhone, or about any product that people are using in their consumer lives. But, we can help you with techniques and technology that can improve your professional life, and hopefully help you relieve that recurring itch on your forehead.
Our Plan: We couldn’t be more excited to announce our new blog on the techniques and technology of the things we know best—podcast production, telephone recording, and even our transcription services.
Our Customers: Our customers often ask for our thoughts on ways they can improve their podcasts, telephone interviews, etc. Questions like:
- Why is the quality of my conference call so poor? Could using Skype be the cause?
- What is the best mobile recorder for an in-person interview in a noisy IT environment?
- For SEO purposes, should a podcast contain loads of keywords like a website does?
We will attempt to address many of these questions in future posts. Heck, we may even join the chorus and talk about the iPhone—the professional uses, that is—as long as we are not duplicating ground that has already been covered elsewhere. In fact, did you know there is a hardware plug-in that turns your iPhone into a mobile recorder! But we’ll talk about that later.
In the meantime, do you have a question of your own? What bit of audio or video technology leaves you scratching your head in your professional life? Is converting that 100 page PowerPoint presentation to video giving you fits?
Our Future Blog: Please leave your questions in the comments section of this post; even if you find this several years after the initial posting. We look forward to a conversation with you on these often overlooked topics.
