Personalised Soccer Commentary

Be a Football Hero allows you to create a personalised audio commentary.

Select your name, country, and age, and then listen to the professional soccer (football) commentary of yourself performing the ultimate football heroics.

If you like what you hear, you can order the soundtrack as a CD for 14.99 pounds.

The soundtrack is very realistic, and you get to hear your surname and age as you score the match winning goal in the dying minutes.

Be a football hero has plans to develop spin off sites for other sports including cricket, tennis, and formula 1.

I’d like to see the option to “Embed” the audio track into social media sites and blog posts, which would help spread awareness of the site, as well as act as a vechicle for product placement.

Also, as the personalised product is produced as an audio, it would be great to include the option to send an sms link to a streaming broadcast of the product, which would be excellent for mobile mediums.

CrunchPad – tablet pc

Looking like a big brother to the iPhone, the CrunchPad tablet PC  from Techcrunch is likely to shake up the tablet computing market.

At 18 mm thick, the tablet only works when connected to the internet.  The device takes advantage of clever touch protocols that make for efficient and pleasant consuming of content.  Rumoured to be priced at around US$300, the device could become a widely adopted method for reading online content.

As well as possibly becoming the classroom read / write pad, I can also envisage this device being the new way to browse online content while curled up in front of the fire place, as well as a kitchen helper displaying interactive recipe content.

Apple too are in the process of reinventing a tablet device, but it is likely to be released at a significant cost premium to the CrunchPad.  See coverage from Wired here.

Below is a video that shows the CrunchPad in action.

Tweetreel – Video from Iphone

Since Apple’s release of the iphone 3GS, there has been lots of discussion around the various tools and applications that will help deliver video content from the phones directly to social networks and to the web.

Tweetreel is one such application seen here in use with video stream from the Michael Jackson memorial

Techcrunch also reports of Facebook’s new iphone app which looks set to amplify the delivery of content from iphones to Facebook.
