Sony’s ultracompact Bloggie HD and Sony Bloggie Touch come with PMB Portable software that is embedded in the camcorders themselves, while the PMB Portable software isn’t as extensive as Sony’s regular edition of PMB, but it has a simpler design and is geared towards helping you upload footage to YouTube or other websites. And PMB software does not offer Macintosh compatibility.
