Our niece instructed us to TiVo the Kids Inaugural Concert as both Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers were performing. As far as I know, we don’t get the Disney Channel in HD. So this was recorded in SD… making it a bit harder to identify what President Obama’s daughters (Malia, Sasha) are holding. I believe we’re seeing a Kodak digital camera on the left (possibly confirmed by Gizmodo) and a Flip Mino on the right.
Internet streaming video is still in its infancy. And some sites experienced difficulties meeting demand, leading folks to placeshift their own content or to catch inauguration coverage on a television. I fell into the latter category, spending much of the day parked on the couch watching CNN HD. During their broadcast, they displayed a satellite image snapped by GeoEye – showing massive pointillist crowds on the National Mall on the Capitol Building grounds. Hit VentureBeat to view several enlargeable slices of the image.
