    Tuned in today and wig was going off about this app periscope. I have never heard of it, wigword did a shit job explaining what it was and it was clear he was getting paid.

    "Robin, you use this app, to upload a video" :faint: wow

    It's an app that delivers fresh prunes and metamucil to your doorstep - which is probably why Howie loves it.

    I downloaded the app after reading this thread. Whee! What fun. So cool to get little glimpses into other people's lives all over the world. I saw a dude do some (not great) magic in England, two Italians read trivia questions, a walk through Times Square, and a guy jumping through flaming hoops in Ireland.

    I decided to give it a try myself. Yesterday during my long, crummy train commute, I pointed my phone camera out the window and hit Start Broadcast. People immediately came in and started commenting and giving hearts :p Funny to think that something so mundane for me, can be exciting/ fun to watch for other people.

    There are some gorgeous women on there, occasionally.

    The comments from men make you weep for humanity, usually.

    It's like a webcam without the cam.... phone to phone live stream for free. But if you're not on wifi it seems to burn good chunks of your data plan.

    I'm not sure of all the limitations, but the other day I did get a "broadcast too full" message and it froze. If you use a tripod it would be cool to stream out of market games (like the boxing) for free to people. Won't exactly kill the NFL but it will be interesting to see if it has an impact on Sunday Ticket and other things.

    It is so cool! I was thinking before it was released that there weren't enough forums for people to post all of their crap on. Now there is one more, and I can't wait for the next one! Maybe someone will post a vid of some cats doing something, that would be amazing.

    I dowloaded it the other day. It's cool, but kind of creepy. Watched Jeff the drunk make breakfast yesterday.

    Hollywood Howie is a fucking slut for cash. I don't think he realizes what he is advertising until the middle of the spot. Does he get that this could potentially negatively affect his endeavors in some way or is he just too stupid to see the forest for the trees?

    I've known about and used Periscope for a long time. It's OKAY, not great. There is a Rolling Stones message board that I visit and EVERY damn show on this last tour was Periscoped. The video sucks. The audio is terrible. What is the point? I'm not exactly sure. People just want to say that they saw shit/heard shit. I guess it's the 21st century version of the A/B button from our 1980s/90s cable boxes.

    I tried watching the Jeff the Drunk and Medicated Pete periscopes and like everything else content-wise, it needs to be heavily culled. I got bored after 20 seconds.

    Wiggy's definitely promoting it for a reason, either for money or to generate interest because Beth is going to use Periscope to do a show about kittens (maybe both). He mentioned the possibility of a kitten show.

    Just saw Howie Mandel doing a periscope chat from a private jet. He mentioned that he needed to get up to a certain number of followers...30K or something like that.

    If these aren't embedded ads, Howard should have Beth can Periscope her next ride on Uber. If Beth really does start to use Periscope, she add that to her imdb profile.
