Uploads to YouTube up 400% since launch of iPhone 3GS
YouTube has said that uploads have increased 1700% over the last six months and part of the reason for this is that it is becoming much easier to use a cellphone to capture video and then upload the results. The 1.5 Android "Cupcake" OS upgrade also included a direct link for uploading video to YouTube. As a result of the greater ease in placing video on the site, we will probably see an increase in videos that are a complete waste of time to watch. On the other hand, with the potential for everyone to become an on-the-spot reporter, news will get to be passed along faster with more accuracy and the video can prove that an event did take place.
