Curating April 1st Innovations (and you’re not going to believe what happens at the end …)
I consider myself a curator of information. It’s what I do for clients. In many respects, it’s what I do here.
Today, I thought I would let you know a few interesting things happening around the Internet.
- According to Seth’s blog this morning, Comcast has done it again. It’s incredible what this company thinks they can get away with. Bring back Net neutrality. Please.
- While on telecommunication companies - apparently T-Mobile thinks it’s a great idea to innovate the phone booth. They say, “Say goodbye to noisy chaos and step right into a quiet, temperature-controlled space complete with walls and windows. You can also use the app to find and reserve a BoothE nearest your location when on the move.” I look forward to seeing the fuchsia beauties in cities all over the country. Will they make it into a new Superman movie?
- Shutterstock is stepping away from their digital heritage and opening up their first brick and mortar stock photo library. Shouldn’t they just call that “ShutterStacks”?
- Speaking of stepping away from tradition, the company “Hello Fresh” — who typically brings farm fresh food to your doorstep — has created a “Unicorn Box”. I mean, they say it’s actual unicorn food. But it looks mostly like a tricky way to sell expensive candy to me.
- Finally (and this is a big finally) tech leviathan Google has innovated once again by adding, “Play Snakes” feature to its popular maps app. You choose a destination city and are then given an appropriate mode of transportation to snake around the city, picking up as many passengers as possible. Thanks, Google for a bit of retro fun.
Wow. April 1, 2019, has turned out to be a big day in the tech world.
Wait a minute …
