Hang on a second while we grab that post for you.
Microsoft further realizing the potential of Kinect. Huge opportunity here, and irony is that it was never meant to be a B2B product.
An EA meltdown is imminent — financials are in the toilet, products are massively failing on multiple platforms and management is running around in a panic (even posting end-times on Twitter). This said, John Riccitiello did it right. He publicly fell on the sword (deserved or not) and took accountability for the company’s woes.
In his farewell letter to EA employees, he writes, “It currently looks like we will come in at the low end of, or slightly below, the financial guidance we issued to the Street, and we have fallen short of the internal operating plan we set one year ago. And for that, I am 100 percent accountable.”
And with that, he announced an exit. That takes character. There are very few CEOs would make such an exit or statement. Hats off.
Big things are coming to Sony tonight! I’m more excited for this than any Apple announcement in history (and I’m not a gamer, if that gives you a hint).
Eric Schmidt this morning linked to this Times article, and yes, it should scare the Hell out of you. Eric didn’t comment on the post.
Stores know what we purchase through scanning at the checkout, but in-store behavior that doesn’t end in a purchase is much harder to track. A system called Shopperception developed with Primesense places a small 3D sensor above a store shelf to capture shopping behavior for retailers.
Mashable reports that the sensor watches people interact with products and Shopperception’s app aggregates all of this data to create a real-time consumer response report. There’s also a heat map to show which products were picked up a lot and which ones were avoided.

I’ve built quite a few sign-up/opt-in iPad apps in my day and it goes without saying… they’re always messy. Storing data, parsing data, merging data, provisioning devices and so on. So, I was delighted to learn that Campaign Monitor (the former BlastRabbit if you’re familiar with history — from a distant, more crude world) released Enlist. It’s about as easy as it gets to create a branded sign-up page for Betas, e-mail lists and everything else you want to collect. Quick, easy, go.
Not sure how well this works (I’ve been disappointed in the past with similar products), but I dream of a device that does this well.
No surprise; I think this is the greatest thing ever — and affordability plays a role in that. And, you little field marketing people could use this for some pretty cool things through the API.

This computerized graphical table is the coolest thing I’ve seen this week.
See, Kickstarter is awesome (some of the time).
