Digital Mall Kiosks Will Scan Shoppers For A More Personalized Experience

digital-mall-kiosks-will-scan-shoppers-for-a-more-personalized-experience.jpg

Earlier this week, Microsoft presented a new point of sale software at National Retail Federation Conference in New York City that is borderline creepy.

The Windows Embedded POSReady 7 program will use motion capture technology, just like the Kinect for Xbox 360, to scan live data ti estimate gender, height, weight, ethnicity, and age as shoppers walk past store windows.

Based on all those characteristics, retailers can then create personalized live ads for each shopper on the spot.

It has the potential to be cool, but at the same time we can't help but get the heebie-jeebies.

What do U think about this new technology???

Nobody Uses Internet Explorer 6. Nobody

Filed under: Tech Talk

ie6-web.jpg

Internet Explorer may finally bite the dust.

Reportedly, only one percent of PC owners use the archaic browser. Even Microsoft doesn't people using IE6.

When IE7 was introduced, IE6 was used by 80% of PC'ers. Now with Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and IE10, it might be time to put IE6 in the nursing home.

But there are still folks out there using IE6, with 8% of non United States users on IE6.

Somebody please put the old browser out of it misery.

office ipad app in the works

If U can't beat 'em, join 'em!

Sources are saying that Microsoft is currently working on creating an Office business app, which would be compatible with Apple's iPad.

No word yet on a release date or price, but we're hearing that the app will probably cost around $10, and it is likely to be released sometime next year!

Ten bucks for full compatibility with Office files? Sounds like a pret-ty decent deal to us!

What do U think? Would U like a Microsoft Office app on UR iPad???

Facebook To Launch Skype Video Chat This Week!

Filed under: Tech TalkFacebook

No more perusing Facebook in your underwear.

The site will be launching Skype video chat later this week. Calling the launch "something awesome," CEO Mark Zuckerberg hinted that this new integration would be added to Facebook chat.

There will now be an in-browser video chat that is actually powered by Skype, but it's not clear whether or not you will need to download the Skype program itself.

This announcement comes just two months after Microsoft announced they were buying Skype for $8.5 million. And with Facebook and Microsoft being friendly partners, this could be a lucrative business deal for both companies.

We're excited for the new video chat. What do U think of the new service?

Google is just the latest company to throw their hat in the Hulu ring.

Along with Microsoft and Yahoo, Google has been added to the list of potential buyers interested in purchasing Hulu, which is currently co-owned by Disney, News Corp., NBC Universal and Providence Equity Partners.

If bidders go high enough, analysts say that Hulu could receive about $2 billion-$3 billion in the deal.

Whoa. That's some major dough. If Google takes over Hulu, we wonder how that will affect their deal with YouTube??

Boo! Weinsteins Ignoring The Fraggle Rock Movie!

Filed under: TV NewsFilm Flickers

fraggle rock movie being ignored by the weinsteins

We wish the Weinsteins would give us the chance to dance our cares away once again!

We were SO excited to report that a Fraggle Rock live-action musical movie was on the way…back in 2008!

Now, several years later, Fraggle Rock: The Movie director Cory Edwards is ready to move forward, but the Weinstein Company has been totally ignoring him!

Here's what Edwards had to say about it on his blog:

Many, many, many of you have repeatedly asked for some kind of update on the Fraggle Rock movie. The truth is, I got nothin’. There’s nothing to report except that The Weinstein Company has everything they need to move forward, and the ball is in their court. They’ve talked about getting a new writer, which I’m willing to do. They’ve talked about starting over from scratch, which I’m willing to do. But I have not heard a peep from their camp in almost a year.

I completely sympathize with all of you that are waiting for a movie, but let’s all remember that the next best thing to making a Fraggle movie is avoiding making a BAD ONE. So at least we’re doing that. Until something new happens to awaken the project from its deep coma, we can at least enjoy the untainted TV series on DVD and The Hub Network. As for me, I’m already working on new things. I hope you’ll stick around and check in here… I’ll be announcing my next project very, very soon.

Obviously the Weinsteins are going to do whatever they want to do, but in our opinion, we'd say they should give this delightful franchise a little bit of time, and maybe let Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft deal with video games….

Just sayin'!

Would U like to see the Fraggle Rock movie finally happen?
