An interesting scenario developed on my drive home, that is a perfect demonstration of emerging technology.
First, I read a Twitter message (while stopped at a red light!) that there was major Steve Jobs news and AAPL stock was tanking.
I then saw a Twitter message from Leo Laporte that he was covering it live.
I tuned my iPhone into the Twit.am stream and listened to the coverage over the 3G network. No skipping, pauses or rebuffering at all.
The amount of time from seeing the alert to hearing the full-story was about 3 minutes. Talk about redefining “breaking news”.
