Valentine’s Day...To be or not to be?

Kanan Kothari

As another February 14th fast approaches, people all over, attached or not, are forced to ask themselves the big question: will I celebrate Valentine’s Day this year? 

The answer to this question seems relatively simplistic at first glance; if you have someone to celebrate with (i.e. a significant other) than you can celebrate.  However, if you don’t, well than to heck with it, you’re left alone to shiver in a dark corner.  Ok, maybe that’s a little harsh, but you see the picture I’m painting here.  But, as any young modern consumer is well aware, the answer to this question has become increasingly complex and multifaceted. 

Deciding on Valentine’s Day festivities has become complicated for couples who ponder this holiday, with such a wide array of gift and celebration possibilities.  Potential consumers are bombarded with advertisements for big ticket items like weekend getaways to the Caribbean, Tiffany’s jewellery, or even high end electronics.   On the other end of the spectrum, recession sensitive consumers are offered solutions like love coupons, hand-made cards or baked goods; by columnists, bloggers, and lifestyle experts.   What’s the expectation and standard these days anyways? And, are there different expectations of men and women?

What is Mobile Augmented Reality?

Gary Malhi

One of my favorite activities on the web is reading new technology related blogs and articles.  I am currently fascinated with the extremely fast pace of technological innovation.  Smartphones are definitely leading the pack with new applications and devices arriving daily.  I recently came across this term “Mobile Augmented Reality(AR)” and I had to explore it further.

 

What does “Augmented Reality” mean?  This term means a live view of the physical world supplemented (augmented) with virtual computer generated imagery.  So basically it means the enhancement of the physical world with computer graphics or text.  You may have seen this on TV in an NHL hockey game where they put a blue halo around the puck so your eye can follow it better (Canadians don’t need this, it was an American TV station that did this).  TV is just one tool with which you can experience AR.  There are head mounted devices, digital projectors and now mobile smartphones.
