December 2007: Qik, a Silicon Valley startup (mobile live streaming web application), launches its alpha version.

August 13, 2008: "Qik, the startup that allows users to stream live mobile video from their cell phones, has released an application that allows users to use the service from their 3G iPhones. Unfortunately, the application isn’t available through Apple’s sanctioned App Store, so users will need to jailbreak (hack) their iPhones to use it. And because Apple has yet to enable video capture on the iPhone, we probably won’t be seeing a “legit” application any time soon." (techcrunch.com)

September 2008: a month after its beta release, Qik receives an undisclosed amount of investments from Netscape veterans Marc Andreessen and Ben Horowitz.
