Hello, I am Robert G. Male. Welcome to TechStop™. Here you will find links that I think are of interest.

Entertainment Weekly Paper Magazine to Have Video Ad Insert
  • This article has sat in the queue for a while now, don't let the header fool you this is not QR codes or other augmented reality that requires a computer or camera. This is a video display built into the magazine. This is the future. The end of the article is correct, cost and power are prohibitive in this case, but how long will that remain the case? Particularly power? As far as advertising goes, having it come on when it is looked at, whenever, with no extra effort or gadgetry, or no way to turn it off aside from abandoning viewing the object on which the screen is embedded or attached is a very powerful thing. What is most exciting about this is not ads in magazines, but that this will fuel something more satisfying and sci-fi than the current tablet computers. I can't help but think of the sheet of paper with video and controls from that one episode of "Journeyman".
