What is the Metaverse?

Wall-E
In the metaverse (meta: to describe, verse: egotistically short for universe), everyone lives their ideal lives, visits amazing places, hangs out with incredible people, and has photographic evidence to prove it. In a metaverse, every event is epic, so even mishaps are considered exceptional. How might this evolve? Continue Reading →

As she approached the entrance to the club, she gave the frame of her new prescription AR glasses a gentle squeeze. When she got to the door, it appeared to turn green, indicating recognition that she was over 21 years of age. Then, a message appeared along with a friendly voice asking for the 5 ADA cover charge.

I've had my Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra for a couple of weeks now, and I can tell you without hesitation that "Ultra" is a fitting name for this smartphone. While the S21 line follows the recent industry trend of making affordable flagship phones, the S21 Ultra isn't for people looking for a bargain. It is the very definition of a premium experience and it is priced to match. If you are looking for the very best Android phone available today, look no further. Here's why. Continue Reading →
Online Meeting
The speed of information is directly equated to economic success. If you learn something before your competitor does and you have the tools to make the knowledge actionable, you are almost always going to profit from it. So, while it’s true that “knowledge is power,” the true power comes from the speed with which you can create information asymmetry in a transactional environment.
