Buzzwire: audio and video for your cell phone

[podtech content=http://media1.podtech.net/media/2007/07/PID_012044/Podtech_BuzzWire_demo.flv&postURL=http://www.podtech.net/home/3722/getting-more-great-content-on-your-cell-phone-with-buzzwire &totalTime=322000&breadcrumb=6c05ce7dd1f54fa79acdebb8b3a9bdbc]

Buzzwire is another company that’s trying to bring audio, video reports along with Internet radio stations to your cell phone. I liked their approach. Here Andrew MacFarlane, CEO, demonstrates the new service.

In a separate interview I learn more about Buzzwire’s plans and how they plan to make money at this.

They just turned on this service tonight.

UPDATE: Venture Wire has a good writeup for those of you who don’t want to watch video.

  1. Why would I want to “bring audio, video reports along with Internet radio stations” to my cell phone?

    I hate my cell phone. All it’s somewhat acceptable for is taking and making calls.

    Of course, it’s not an iPhone, but if I had an iPhone (not available in Canada yet, btw) then why would I need this service? I’d just go the the web and get what I want.

    All these companies providing custom portals into web content are behind the curve.
