On Monday through Wednesday, the nine of us were very invested with working at the Wabash YMCA, working every second because we wanted to make sure that closets were organized and clean, and that other duties were handled.

Vodcasting (Video Podcasting) from the iPad, part 2

While the iPad takes fantastic video, the upload options are limiting. Using the raw video for a podcast is simply not an option due to the large file size generated by the 720p HD video it shoots.
