I just saw a post on TechCrunch which talked about Total Immersions $5.5 million deal with Intel for their augmented reality platform.

Corporate Uses for the iPad

Posted by on Mar 15, 2011 in Hardware, Software

It always amazes me that when Microsoft comes out with a product they usually find a corporate use for it (unless of course you’re talking about the Xbox) and then consumers slowly adopt. When Apple releases something, the coolness factor takes it to the masses, then we start having people say, “I bet we could […]

This question becomes quite compelling especially as differentiation between various sign software offerings decreases over time. As technologies and products mature, there tends to be a real shake-out as to when particular products enter the market. It would be good to define what a commodity actually is. Wikipedia defines a commodity as “a good for […]

Recently the Guinness Book of World Records stated that Microsoft’s Xbox 360’s Kinect devices is the fastest growing consumer electronics product ever.
