I'm not sure if they have an official “Best in Show” award at Blogworld last week, but there was one piece of technology made me go, “WOA! That's Cool” That is the Boss Jock Studio application for iPhone. This cool tool lets you record a podcast directly from your iPhone. It lets you mix in music, export it to your website, soundcloud, ftp, etc. I got to hear what its like to record, I did NOT get to hear the recording. There is some pretty impressive compression and automatic volume leveling that looks impressive. I'm hoping to have someone record something so I can hear (after all you are using the microphone from the iPhone – I don't see where you can plugin in an external microphone). There are plans for an iPad version as well in the future. I was told that the Android operating system has a latency (echo) problem currently. Here is a quick demonstration.

Ray Ortega Shows Off BossJock on a Laptop
My friend Ray Ortega from the Podcasters Studio is a whiz at video and he made a great video showing how he plugged the Audio Technica 2100 directly into an iPad (as of 1/20/12 you can't plug the 2100 into an iPhone – it's an Apple thing, not a bossjock thing).
