TOP OF THE DAY TO YOU...HOPE IT'S A GREAT ONE.
I'M RICH DEMURO AND YOU'VE FOUND YOUR WAY INTO THE QUEUE...
TAMING THE WIERD AND WILD TECH WORLD SINCE 1937.
LET'S GET YOU STARTED WITH YOUR MUST CLICK MOMENT!
JUST TRY NOT TO CRACK A SMILE WATCHING THIS...A SIMPLE DANCING ROBOT...
DON'T KNOW WHY I FIND THIS SO FUNNY...
CARNEGIE MELLON AND A JAPANESE UNIVERSITY COLLABORATED TO BUILD THE SQUISHY YELLOW ROBOT CALLED KEEPON.
IT MOVES IN SYNC TO MUSIC OR SOMEONE ELSE DANCING.
THEY HOPE THE TECHNOLOGY MAKES ROBOTS SEEM MORE HUMAN.
MORE PROOF THE DOT MOBI DOMAIN ISN'T DEAD JUST YET...
ZAGAT NOW HAS A WIRELESS SITE FOR INFO AND RATINGS ON THE GO.
ZAGAT DOT MOBI LETS YOU LOOK UP RESTAURANTS, NIGHTLIFE AND HOTEL INFORMATION FOR CITIES ACROSS THE US AND AROUND THE WORLD.
UNLIKE THEIR DOWNLOADABLE MOBILE APP, THE SITE IS COMPATIBLE WITH ANY WEB ENABLED PHONE.
A FEW COOL FEATURES ON THE LAUNCH SITE...INCLUDING THE ABILITY TO SEND THE LISTING VIA TEXT TO A FRIEND...AND A WAY TO FIND OTHER LISTINGS NEARBY.
411-STYLE INFO IS FREE - TO GET ACTUAL ZAGAT RATINGS AND REVIEWS...YOU HAVE TO PONY UP 25 BUCKS A YEAR.
MOVING THROUGH THE QUEUE...PHOTOWORKS HOPES TO DO FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS WHAT EBAY DID FOR COLLECTORS...
BY LETTING ANYONE SELL PHOTOBOOKS.
THE SITE LAUNCHING A SERVICE CALLED MY STOREFRONT...
RIGHT NOW YOU CAN SELL CUSTOM PHOTOBOOKS...BUT THERE ARE PLANS TO ADD THE ABILITY TO SELL PRINTS, CARDS, PHOTO GIFTS, CALENDARS AND DIGITAL DOWNLOADS.
SOME IDEAS FROM PHOTOWORKS - CHEFS CAN MAKE COOKBOOKS, ARTISTS CAN SELL PRINTS AND CHARITIES CAN RAISE MONEY THROUGH THE CUSTOM BOOKS.
THIS JUST IN FROM THE TRL STUDIOS...
TECHNOLOGY ACTUALLY MAKES YOUNG PEOPLE HAPPY!
MTV AND THE ASSOCIATED PRESS STUDIED 13 TO 24 YEAR OLDS FOR 7 MONTHS...AND FOUND THAT CELL PHONES, THE INTERNET AND TECHNOLOGY IS AN INTEGRAL PART OF YOUNG PEOPLE'S LIVES...
1 OUT OF TWO SAID THE INTERNET ALONE MAKES THEM HAPPIER...
AND THEY'D BE STRESSED OUT WITHOUT TECHNOLOGY - HALF SAY THEY NEVER TURN OFF THEIR CELL PHONES...EVEN WHEN THEY'RE TRYING TO QUOTE - CHILL OUT.
FINALLY THE SITE...
WHEN YOU'RE SO OBSESSED WITH A BAND YOU CAN'T WAIT FOR YOUR LOCAL RADIO STATION TO TELL YOU WHEN THEY'RE COMING TO TOWN...
BANDTRACKER LETS YOU STALK FROM THE COMFORT OF YOUR COMPUTER.
THE SITE LETS YOU TRACK OVER 300-THOUSAND BANDS...JUST POP IN YOUR FAVORITES AND A LOCATION...THEN YOU'LL GET A WEEKLY EMAIL SAYING WHO'S IN TOWN...AND WAYS TO SCORE TICKETS.
THERE ARE EVEN WIDGETS SO YOU CAN SHOW OFF YOUR TRACKED BANDS ON SOCIAL NETWORKING SITES INCLUDING MYSPACE AND FACEBOOK.
NO NEED TO REGISTER IF YOU JUST WANT TO CHECK OUT CONCERT SCHEDULES AND GET TICKETS...
BY THE WAY...THE MOST TRACKED BAND RIGHT NOW - KELLIE PICKLER.
CONSIDER YOURSELF ALL QUEUED UP!
I'M RICH DEMURO WITH CNET TV IN NEW YORK CITY AND I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL IS ALL ABOUT.
