Mobile Consumer Behavior: Classes

M

This may be the longest post in the history of the Internet. It may break it. Ideally this would have been done the day I taught the class but this quarter was exceptionally busy. 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...

Mini Love

M

I’ve been thinking a lot about the iPad Mini since its release and plan on getting one as soon as possible. I wasn’t one of the skeptics when I first heard about it nor was I optimistic. I was pretty neutral and after watching the video on Apple there was something about the scale that really appealed to me. It took some reflection to figure out why I liked the smaller size so much...

“M” is for Mobile Marissa

&

On July 16th, 2012 Marissa Mayer took over as CEO of Yahoo! and I have to confess, I didn’t have much hope for her. Not because of her, but because of the current state of Yahoo!. I’m not talking the value of the stock or the employee base. I’m talking about the fact that no one could tell me what Yahoo! was. Are they an email company? Are they a search company? Are they a news...

Embrace the Remix (Ted Talk)

E

This is a great TED Talk about from @remixeverything about how creativity is the ability to take pieces of what has influenced you and put them together in a unique way.  This sentiment is shared by Malcom Gladwell with respect to Steve Jobs. (Living/breathing Tweet below.) Malcolm Gladwell on Steve Jobs, “the tweaker”: his sensibility was “editorial, not inventive” nyr...

CRUCES 5th Anniversary

C

On July 25th, 2007, I created my first blog post. It’s hard to believe it’s been five years and a lot has changed in that time. The focus of CRUCES has shifted with digital culture and I’ve been very lucky in that my passion for mobile/social & location is now at the forefront of marketing’s collective consciousness. This of course is not the only thing that has changed in that time. Below...

Apple. Please add these functions to the iPhone camera.

A

I use the camera on my iPhone much more than I ever expected. I use it to shoot pictures/video of my kids. To take pictures for Instagram & Path (as of late) and to coordinate in-store purchases with my wife. It has become an indispensable tool. That said, nothing is perfect and I’d like to recommend some additional functionality for the iPhone Higher pixel – I had to buy another...

When will the iPhone become aware?

W

So . . . the iPhone is now inextricably entrenched in my life. I use it to record, organize, enhance and share my life. Barely a phone, more of a computer and definitely an extension of myself . And yet, there is always room for improvement. I need the iPhone – not an app – to be aware. What I mean, is that it needs to know where I am (which it does) and what time it is (which it...

Prius concept bike from Deeplocal (video)

P

Check out this great example of the marriage between man (or woman) and machine from @deeplocal. They refer to themselves as a “post-digital shop” creating remarkable experiences that bridge the online and physical worlds. Just like the Likebelt post below, we are seeing a #COLLISION between the physical world and the digital world. Very exciting!
