Discuss general aspects of Genii.

Just received this cool preliminary announcement from EMC:

Lots of people have been asking whether EMC will work on the iPad. Well, today was a very exciting day. Today was the day we saw live streaming video from Studio 33 not only on the iPad but also on the iPhone. Yes, everyone has been running up and down the corridors of Studio33 holding up their iPhones and iPads and marvelling at the fact that they can see trailers for "Mistrios" and "Lennart Green Masterfile" being broadcast live from the studio.

We still have some technical challenges to meet but our tests are promising. If those prove successful we will make an official announcement about iPad and iPhone compatibility...

You should note that iPads and iPhones carry the live video feed only. You will not be able to participate in the live chat. You need a computer with a keyboard to do that effectively...


Also:

Our web teams preferred browser is Chrome but EMC has been designed to work with all the major browsers. You should have no problems as long as your browser is up to date and your computer is reasonably healthy. As before we will have a choice of streams that cater for all bandwidths.

Very exciting news--I'll be interested to see how they got around the "no Flash" issue on the Ipads.

Simple. HTML5.

Great news though.
