We talk with Simon Ainslie, CEO of Nokia UK

Simon Ainslie, CEO of Nokia UK answers our questions about their new Comes With Music service, launched here in London last week.

Here’s the streaming video:

Now, we’ve changed things around somewhat. Most weeks, we’re producing a MIR Show around 30 minutes — sometimes as long as 35 minutes. Whilst we’re getting tons of downloads (and views), thirty-five minutes is quite a commitment in terms of time and attention.

In particular I’ve been wanting to see how you all react to smaller vignette style features. I think these might be more accessible for a lot more of the wider audience who don’t necessarily want to sit down and watch the whole show.

There won’t be one big show this week. Instead, it’ll be split across the week — one per day. We’ll add them into the podcast streams as daily episodes too.

I can foresee this being slightly annoying for those of you used to a complete packaged ‘show’, but I also like the fact that, for the first time, we’ll be able to publish our features on Youtube and other streaming video sites (that insist on <10 minute videos).

Please tell us what you think?
