Spread the MIS specification word and win $150CDN

Following a conversation in a recent post, I decided to write a generic text for you to email your favorite consumer electronic manufacturers. You can modify it to your own needs(delete the products they don't make ;) ). Plus, I added a little something fun for you. Subject: Support the MIS specification Hi, Can you support the MIS specification(metadata text for media files) in a current or future product. I, my parents, siblings don't want to install a computer in our living room but would prefer something much easier (DVD player, Media player, portable MP3 player or digital photo display). All the technical information are included at the end. Thank you for your time Links: MIS Specification: http://www.mcgrathinfosolution.com/mis_en.htm Info2MIS (free, Create .MIS): http://www.mcgrathinfosolution.com/info2mis_en.htm MIS Info Video (free, Front End/Player): http://www.mcgrathinfosolution.com/misinfovideo_en.htm Example for movies with MIS Info Video: http://www.i2mfan.com/blue_crush_example.htm Example for TV series with MIS Info Video: http://www.i2mfan.com/tvseries_example.htm What is the MIS specification?

Guys! I got an email from Anne Lee Heidi did not work, I guest.

Here's the companies I emailed. I support this idea, so I hope they get the message.

Awesome I won this. I really hope the MIS specs come into mainstream use, I think it's really useful, so guys, even though the contest is over, keep sending out those emails, and change the way things are done.

Good for you Icewolf !
