Chat Replay: How to Use an iPhone as Your Sole Reporting Tool

Jim Seida, senior multimedia producer at, shared tips during a live chat about how he used an iPhone4 as his only reporting tool while testing out the Chevy Volt.

During the Electric Road Trip, Seida sent audio, video, photos and stories back via his iPhone. Seida is one of the original multimedia journalists. Fourteen years ago, he helped create multimedia storytelling for MSNBC’s online audience as part of a core group of multimedia producers.
