Over the years, I’ve been a real estate broker and worked with many since then as a marketing strategist at THINK-TANK. Suffice to say that most real estate in Wichita, Kansas isn’t in the stratosphere price range! But, I was still intrigued with the marketing innovation that went into marketing a Malibu mansion. Click the graphic to see for yourself. Pretty cool. I don’t know if it’s sold yet or not, but I applaud the strategy!
Even though the “new” iPad has been released for just a few weeks now, there is a video that seems to demonstrate the potential for new “flex” displays. Obviously, what is shown appears to be an imaginative “made-to-look-real” demo, but the potential for innovation appears to be coming sooner rather than later. See what you think by watching the video. Click the graphic to see what it’s all about.
Several years ago, LeeWood (previously known as LeeWood Homes) asked us to design a new identity for them. This included a new logo and printed materials. They were so pleased with these results that they recently retained us to design their new web site. One of the key elements was that they wanted to be able to make basic updates themselves. We have a lot of expertise with this type of web design. If you are interested in this for your business, let us know.
While you can rest assured that the iPad 3 or iPad HD (we’re not sure what the name will be for another 2 days now) is NOT the one shown in this concept video, it does offer a glimpse at what VERY COOL future technologies might offer. Take a look and judge for yourself.
We have long advocated the use of resumés that break the mold of boring and “me-tooism (is that a word?).”
Now, a new firm is specializing in designing head-snapping resumés with some cool-looking designs. If you are wanting to stand out in the crowded job seeking marketplace, you should see what they offer HERE.
Most people know that Apple has been involved with the education community for decades. Consider that their iTunes U offering on iTunes has a stunning amount of FREE content (mostly audio and videos) from leading universities from around the globe.
But, today, Apple unveiled a FABULOUS new initiative aimed at electronic textbook creation, delivery, distribution, use and pricing. Consider that many of the textbooks that will be offered in the new iBooks store will be under $15 (at least as presented today), students will be the beneficiaries of an array of interactive textbooks for a fraction of the cost of printed textbooks.
All of these books will be viewable on Apple’s iPad, of course.
Add to that the ability of teachers (or anyone for that matter) to create and deliver their own interactive books (textbooks or otherwise) and you have the beginnings of a major shift in education and learning.
If you are an administrator, teacher or student wanting to catch a glimpse of the future of education, be sure to watch this introduction video. AMAZING stuff! Just a note: If you are on Windows, you’ll need to have Quicktime 7 to watch the video.
