Wireless Developer's Journal Kooaba's mobile image recognition (MIR) technology will be used in the November edition of Wired magazine (US) to link print advertisements to online content. Kooaba claims this as a US first. Oddly enough Wired online are also running a vstory on augmented reality (AR) here. The advantage of using Kooaba's MIR technology rather than tags as the page-to-promotion link is that MIR can leverage... ... (more)

Reinventing Print Media - Yeah Right...

Strategy+Business is normally a very reliable and insightful publication but the recent article Reinventing Print Media was not up to their high standards. How could an article discussing - in depth - the future of print media leave out mobile tagging, MIR and AR? All three of these technologies will be vital to re-invigorating a print media industry that is on its last legs. All three provide ways to link print media to online content, promotions and naturally most important of all, new advertising revenue streams. As well as reaching out to a new, younger generation of print media consumers. In the whole article, the word "mobile" is only mentioned vaguely in the context of mobile "sites" and "applications". Ignoring the importance of the mobile market in the reinvention of print media in the way the authors do in this article clearly shows that print media comment... (more)

94Wines Personalized Content

Adding a QR code to a wine bottle is not a new idea but the tagging twist added by 94wines is quite interesting. When you order a bottle of wine from 94wines they put a QR Code on the label that resolves to online content - just like any other QR Code. The twist is that you can upload your own personal content to the 94Wines webspace and that is where the tag resolves to. If I've understood it Stewart McKienoreply@blogger.com0 ... (more)

Guide to Cloud Computing for Media and Marketing

Media Marketing at Cloud Expo It's been crazy the last few months of 2009 in terms of travel and projects. Monaco Media Forum was a huge success, yet one that sucked up massive amounts of bandwidth before and during the event. Superb speakers and networking. I don't know if I'm cut out to be an editorial programmer in the long run but having the experience of doing it at this level of intensity was great. Hopefully, I'll be able to announce participation to help program a major event on emerging media economies over the next few weeks. Stay tuned. After Europe, I took a DEEP dive into mobile augmented reality for GigaOm Pro. That one should publish later this month or after the beginning of the year. I'm going to start 2010 with a series of posts about mobile AR here at Media Dojo and on Mediabizbloggers, which is part of Jack Myers site. I've already done my first p... (more)

Did Yelp Catch The First Anti- Google Wave?

LBS on Ulitzer Location Based Services on Ulitzer - On December 21st, as we all got ready for the 2009 Holiday “unplug”, it was reported that local business rating and review information aggregator Yelp rejected a hefty $500+Million takeover offer from Google. Bold move, but why did they walk away? No one seems to be certain. Yelp’s window stickers tell a tale of building local merchant trust and a lot of grunt work by “boots on the ground”. By this I mean the literal and figurative wearing out of shoe leather for the purpose of winning over single-door business owners one by one. Explaining the power of Location-Based advertising and the impact of having real people maintain a fresh and vibrant listing infused with reviews, offers, specials, and the “inside scoop” is something best done live and in-person. This crucial element of Local Search is hard to scale and... (more)

Understanding The “Mobile Commerce Gap”

Sometime this year, 50% of Americans will own a web-connected smartphone, yet less than 20% of online retailers have websites optimized and formatted to serve these mobile consumers. I am calling this the “mobile commerce gap”. The reason for this inequity between demand and supply, in my opinion, is because the internal resources required for online retailers to properly develop a mobile commerce site have been pulled in other directions, even as smartphone adoption rates have exploded. As a result, a majority of online retailers are offering their mobile customers a very poor online shopping experience. This, in turn, results in poor conversion rates and missed sales, not to mention the fact that consumers are left with the general impression that the retail brand is not serving their needs. Think about it, how many times have you visited a site on your smartphone... (more)

Bananas For QR Codes: The Mobile Low Hanging Fruit

The Other Day I Scanned A Banana (The Good Yes, that’s right, a single, offline, real banana. Latin name Musa Acuminata. More specifically, I used my smartphone to scan a sticker on the banana. The banana itself had no power supply, or web connection. I happened to buy this particular banana at a Wal-Mart in Florida (while on a fishing trip) and noticed that the ubiquitous banana “fruit company” sticker contained a mobile quick response (QR code). I opened the scanner on my iPhone and scanned the code. In doing so, I opened a portal to the internet, a live action window into an online mobile-optimized experience that taught me something new. That engaged me. Cool. The Del Monte QR Code Seldom had I considered what company grew and shipped and sold the bananas to the grocery store I bought them from. Did you know that the Del Monte Fresh Produce Company was founded... (more)
