Yes ive come accross this issue as well, what would be great is that if you could explain how to use the iphone (mine is a 3gs) as an USB webcam and/or microphone.
Around the internet they even say that this is possible without even connecting your iphone to your mac. I don't really know however if you have any info on how to get a microphone+webcam OR just simply a microphone by using an iPhone 3gs that would be greatly appreciated.
Great show btw.

I'm having trouble with IMovie and using the 2 products in this video. I just bought the microphone and the USB adapter. So here is the issue, the mic sounds great when I do voice overs in Imovie but when I try to video record with the ISight in IMovie it uses the built in microphone instead of my Lavalier Microphone. Do you know where the setting adjustment for audio when shooting the video using the ISight in IMovie 09
