Behold! The Yo Platform

B

Yep. That Yo. The app that you could install and send a “Yo” to friends with. The app/company that received a $1.5 million investment last July. It turns out that this little joke of an app is actually creating a wafer thin platform for smartwatches with which you can plug your services into. @orarbel the CEO of Yo announced this in a session I was sitting in at SXSW. Turns out this...

Taco Bell’s Twitter miss

T

I tweeted the message below after downloading the new Taco Bell app. For those of you that don’t know, Taco Bell 0wns Twitter. They’ve created some of the best brand moments and I agree with HuffPo that whoever runs their account, deserves a raise. As you can tell from my Tweet, I was surprised that they didn’t allow users to login with their Twitter credentials. I completely...

The Starbucks app needs to be more contexutal

T

I’ve been playing with the Starbucks app for awhile and I like some of the things it does. I especially like the geofences it creates when I select my favorite stores.

In fact, the last time I was that busy was during grad school while working a full time job. I was a human piñata this quarter. But below is an outline of what material I covered during the class. Intro – The first day...

Get creepy

G

I arrive in Denver at 3:32pm on flight 1431.  I need to get to Boulder by 7pm for a dinner meeting. I get off the plane and make my way to the main concourse. I receive a text that Uber will be at door 8B on the west side as usual. I reply back; “I’m hungry but don’t know what I want. ” They message back, “We’ll take care of it.”  I make my way to the...
