CINCINNATI - We’re back! Happy 2014! As the new year kicks off, there’s no shortage in digital drama, news and landmark moves. We’re rounding up some big talkers this week – check them out:
Coinye vs. Kanye – “Consumers are likely to mistakenly believe that Mr. West is the source of your services.” That’s how a cease and desist letter against Coinye, a new virtual currency, began.
Because what’s a Kanye West story without a little bit of drama? Read more about the Coinye battle in this BBC News story.
Snapchat says sorry – The beginning of the new year brought a Snapchat security breach, in which the user names and numbers of countless Snapchat users were compromised; and this week, the company apologized and released an upgrade to fix the breach. Mashable has the full story: check it out.
Polar Selfies – Say it with me: “Polar. Vortex.” C’mon…it was the phrase on everyone’s lips this week, as the nation experienced below-average (and in many, many places, below FREEZING) temperatures. But you think sub-zero temps are going to stop the selfie? Heck no! If anything, this was a challenge selfie fans met with perfectly-posed, outstretched arms.
‘Confide’ in your coworkers – Let’s be honest: You’re probably not going to send a Snapchat to your coworker. It’s…weird? It’s weird.
But that doesn’t mean business professionals don’t want an app like that. And they got it on Jan. 8 with the launch of the new “Snapchat for professionals” app, Confide.
Intrigued? Read about the app, created by a former AOL exec, and how the idea was born, on AdAge.com.
The eyewear of the future – the concept of Google Glass? Pretty cool. But these extra-terrestrial eyesores on your face? Hard pass.
But with the advent of these smart contacts, you could have the superhuman abilities like the ones Google Glass would give you, without the obvious frames.
