Oh No! Geek Couple get Married in Apple Store?

This is post 600 for happy dude and not quite sure what to say -the video shows a wedding that took place in an Apple store?

It took a whole Apple theme even the the minster was dressed “similar to Steve Jobs he even says the following :-

“…we’re here tonight not only to look for new iPhone cases but to participate and witness a special ceremony of marriage. Which is a means of establishing a new home and embarking on this journey of the heart. Steve Jobs once said and I quote ‘You have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever.” These dots are what have brought this couple together and what will guide them henceforth.”

Whatever next I know that I could be classed as bit of a geek myself but this is definitely different and I am sure that Apple will soon be charging for the service and Google will follow with an open source version 😉

Bing Augmented Reality with Live Video Broadcasting.

Well talk about waiting for a bus and two come along;  following on from the earlier “Google Liquid Galaxy” post spotted this video from TED 2010 featuring Blaise Aguera y Arcas who is an architect at Microsoft Live Labs and the co-creator of Photosynth.

Here he demos augmented-reality with Bing and shows some amazing features the show stopper being the live broadcast video footage he also talks about some more features including “time travel” no not Doctor Who but the facility to overlay images from the past with current, I think they may also have one up on Google with their  “back pack camera”  which enables street view inside.

All very impressive and expecting many more great things from both camps with their augmented and 3D offerings.

Robin Hood Tax – Will the Bankers be Worried or Care?

This video featuring Bill Nighy has been created by the people at Robin Hood Tax which is a group backed by many charities, unions and celebrities including Oxfam, the Salvation Army, Bono & Richard Curtis.

The idea is to call for an international transaction tax on investment banks with the alleged potential to raise as much as £250bn a year to bolster public services and fight climate change and poverty.

Will be interesting to see how it goes I bet a lot of politicians and economists will favour this approach to banking reform 😉
