You and your buddies might not live in the same place, but that shouldn't stop you from sharing in each other's rich life experiences, like weddings, or a cat that uses the toilet. Keep everyone up to the minute, with Qik.
Based in Foster City, Qik's a beta website/cellie app that lets you real-time stream any video shot on your phone for easy viewing, backup, sharing, and shaming. Just enter your number on the site and Qik'll SMS you the program, which'll easily walk you through set-up; then hit "stream", and anything you capture'll appear on your profile page after a 1-3 second delay, though without a room full of producers, you won't be able to edit out your threat to castrate the Democratic presidential nominee. Vids get screened on your Qik profile, plus any number of widgets (your blog, Twitter, Facebook) Qik'll magically post to; viewers can then chat direct to your phone, where text'll pop up below your footage ("Zoom in -- it's not a bris until I see foreskin").
Even as you read this, Qik's working on supporting the iPhone, as well as the Blackberry -- because you don't need a cat to shoot someone taking care of business.
