There are 3 new technologies competing for attention on today’s mobile
phones: Augmented Reality (AR), Mobile Image Recognition (MIR) and Mobile
Tagging (MT). This briefing aims to provide a short introduction to all
three, position them against each other and illustrate how all they can
Augmented Reality (AR)
AR uses the current view (front end) of the real world visible through your
phone camera to display online content (back end) linked to specific objects
located within the view. AR does this by using GPS co-ordinates to figure out
a ‘start position’ of where you are and your phone’s built-in
gyroscopic compass to orientate to specifically what you are looking at. The
combination of where you are and what your orientation is allows the AR
software to resolve to back end content that adds some perspective to what it
is you are looking at. AR ... (more)

Mobile tagging is a process, a technology and a marketplace.
The process of mobile tagging involves creating a visual image in a very
specific format – called a tag – then deploying and displaying the tag

snap it. When the tag is snapped you’re sorted as this triggers immediate
delivery of content to your phone.
The technology of mobile tagging includes various tag formats that are
recognized by a specific tag reader. The reader is an application installed
on the mobile that needs to be loaded to snap t... (more)
Writers who forget the business side of the industry do so at their peril.
The audience of a screenwriter is just one person – a reader.
Every scene, every line, every word in your script should be brimming with

The job of a screenwriter is to create tension and release it. Create new
tension and release it. Over and over again until the end of the film.
Most screenplays fail because the hero does not have clearly defined wants

The mobile web's momentum continues unabated with Google's acquisition of
AdMob and Apple's Shocking Numbers for iPhone app usage.
The whole thing is reminiscent of the introduction of the IBM PC back in

drive. But reminiscent only in a far-off, Stewart McKienoreply@blogger.com0
