Nokia Lumia 900 from AT&T Launching Easter Sunday – Is it the Cyan Savior?

Nokia Lumia 900 Easter

When the new Nokia Lumia 900 from AT&T launches on Easter Sunday, Nokia executives are expecting big week one sales numbers.  In fact, they were so bold as to claim that the Lumia 900 week one sales will surpass 4 Million units sold, that would top the iPhone 4's first week of sales.  Except, there will be no lines outside of stores, no big unveiling, no 6 hour wait, no extra staff to handle crowds - oh yea - that's because the only person working on Sunday is the Easter Bunny as all AT&T stores will be closed for the holiday. While there is no doubt that this phone is a much needed breath of fresh air for the smartphone market - and that it is priced very well at $99 - and that it is marketed effectively - and that it has a great OS - I could go on.  But, at the end of the day, Nokia has to hope that the Easter Bunny will deliver this Cyan Savior in a few chocolate eggs. … [Read more...]

Yahoo's Last Stand

American Apparel UK Ad Campaign Banned, What is the New Strategy?

American Apparel Ad Campaign Banned

The UK Advertising Standards Authority just banned some near pornographic new advertisements from American Apparel.  If you are familiar with American Apparel's messaging, you know what I'm talking about - Butts, Breasts, and Beautiful young girls.  This time, they went a bit too far.

Google Project Glass, How Will These Glasses Work in Real Life?

A New Yorker's Life With Google Glasses

Today Google released a new concept for augmented reality glasses that allow you to stay perpetually connected.  The glasses, dubbed 'Project Glass' will stream all varieties of digital media via a 'heads up display' imbedded directly into these futuristic shades.  The promotional video shows a man going about his daily life, in New York City, helped along by all the perfectly timed suggestions from his new glasses. While this certainly looks like one of the coolest new pieces of tech that could sublimate laptops and smart phones - the adoption of this technology just isn't practical.  Taking into account our massive daily media consumption, the Google Glasses will inundate you with reminders, texts, calls, emails, suggestions, invites, videos, etc.  Not to mention, you'll have to walk around wearing some goofy looking shades all day. I love to stay connected; but, nothing beats … [Read more...]

1940 Census Data Release Causes Uncle Sam’s Servers to Crash

1940 Census

  The government has just released over 3 million census bureau documents recorded on April 2, 1940 and made them free to view on the internet.  This data has garnered a tremendous amount of momentum, over 22 Million page views in one day; which temporarily crashed Uncle Sam's Servers. Despite the traffic volumes, this data sheds some light into how our lives have changed over 70 years; for example, the average man's salary was around $900 a year, we had half as many people in the US, the racial gap was insanely wide, we have this crazy thing called the internet, and the top two industries were Manufacturing and Agriculture.  You could call this progress, but will this retrospective call for simpler times?  What can we really learn from this data to help improve our country, today? Are you starving for more data to help further our country's progress... well you're in luck! … [Read more...]
