Video Of An Impatient Truck Driver Instructor…



Here’s a video I recorded in Gary, Indiana of an impatient truck driver instructor instructing a student truck driver how to back up. This guy’s body language and the impatient expression on his face tell me most people wouldn’t want him to teach them anything!!!

High Resolution Video Experiment…



I am trying a high-resolution video experiment. This video was recorded at 960 x 720 and converted into a QuickTime .mov file. It will not transfer or play on a video iPod at this resolution, though it will play back okay in iTunes.

I believe the lack of ability of the video iPod to support video playback above 640 x 480 (”SD” or Standard Definition) is the reason why to date Apple doesn’t sell HD movies or video downloads on iTunes.


New Trucker Tom Ad Campaign…



Today I was offered an opportunity through Podshow to start a new long-running ad campaign for Mobile Long Life motor oil. I will be talking about it several different times over the next several months. In any case, my goal is to get you to click on http://www.mobiloil.com. I’d love to drive as much traffic as I can muster to that link so if anyone has any ideas as to how I can accomplish that please feel free to share them with me!!!
