Golfscape GPS Rangefinder: an augmented reality range finder for Golf lovers. It covers 35K+ courses. It displays the distance from front, center, and back of green.

To Summarise (1):

To Summarise (1) Social Media is ubiquitous. More businesses are adding social media links and information to their websites; consumers now look for these links. Visiting a company's Facebook page or Twitter profile has become as important as reading reviews on the business . Facebook will have 1 billion users by end 2012 and will continue to dominate the social network space. More apps and integration with external services will encourage shift from conversations to sharing and engagement = users spend more time on site. Rapid growth of companies/services offering new and interesting ways for people to share information (e.g. Tumblr , Pinterest ) Help with content overload. More apps and services providing knowledge and information curation , aggregation and filtering. Apps will inherit the earth! Users more familiar (and trusting) of software distribution channels (app stores). Users happy to discard old/legacy apps and download new ones that meet changing needs and requirements .

PowerPoint Presentation:

Gami-ificaton techniques will find their way into more social networks and corporate websites in order to engage and retain users/customers. Augmented reality apps will offer an awesome user experience. Location-based services will thrive and provide new, more compelling, more efficient services with lower B2C transaction costs. Privacy issues will deter some users. More opportunities for micro-entrepreneurs. Peer to peer on the rise; more lending, sharing, bartering and recycling opportunities offered via ‘Collaborative Consumption”. We ’ re going to continue to generate data faster than it can be consumed or understood. Most of it will not be held inside the enterprise. Information visualisation techniques and intelligent analytics will aid user ’ s interpretation and understanding . Opportunities and challenges for knowledge & information professionals. Mobile platforms will soon overtake the desktop PC as the preferred interface to the Internet and www. Software being designed for mobile, with consideration for PC, not the other way around. To Summarise (2)
