u2 Video Montage from Nice Concert

20 07 2009

Here is sampler from key highlights at the U2 360 degree Nice concert. Try and catch the full show if you are lucky to obtain a ticket for the remaining up-coming shows.

The Mobile Phone - the must have at any show

The Mobile Phone - the must have at any show

Does technology improve our lives ? In this example, a resounding big YES. Technology has allowed thousands of fans to book tickets from far and wide. Via numerous web sites, phone/mobile services ahead of the show, thousands have shared their excitement, shared news and gossip and arranged joint travel to the show (to reduce, albeit, their carbon footprint contribution). At the show many people were able to shoot photos/video and immediately share via MMS or upload to websites! Such is the power of mobile phones these days. The power of new social media sites such as Facebook are now offering interesting new apps to go one step further and reverse the flow of photo sharing.
Mobimii has launched a service on Facebook which allows users to send photos from their Facebook profiles. By integrating Facebook’s own photo-sharing options, Pix2Fone lets you send photos from your Facebook album to your mobile phone, or to the cell phones of your Facebook friends. No wonder BlackBerry signed up to be a U2’s tour sponsor.

Finally, post show, the google’s search engine will attest to the thousands of sites that carry concert review (this blog included!), discussions on the final set, backstage gossip, fund raising achievements, photos, videos (let’s hear it for YouTube!), fan feedback and more. Instant gratification to share, learn and debate. Something that would have been impossible only a few years ago.

It’s truly very complicated in this full of activity life to listen news on Television, therefore I just use web for that purpose, and obtain the most up-to-date information.
