Technology and Gadget Predictions for the year 2050!

“Introducing, the new (2050) iPhone, with integrated, hologram, voice call.”

Can you imagine this by 2050, or perhaps sooner? For many of us who watched the “Obama/McCain,” US election on CNN, we might of noticed a hologram of a female reporter. However, this used a few cameras on a 360 degree axis, and one very large “green screen,” to create the illusion. Nevertheless, it has created some media in the process, and now questions remain…when will we see, and use holograms?

George Lucas might be smug as he created the same techniques on Star Wars!

Company behind E.Factor

E.Factor was formed in 2007 by Roeland Reinders, Adrie Reinders, and Marion Freijsen – all highly skilled and well-connected entrepreneurs serving Fortune 2000 companies with innovative IT business solutions.

The trio had started work on their second book about Entrepreneurship (Adrie and Marion’s first book, The N Factor, was published earlier in 2007). The website began as a small virtual community where the authors could share info and ask for feedback by other entrepreneurs. It proved to be the beginning of something wonderful: the E.Factor. In time, the group was joined by “serial social networker” Rodney Sampson, and they went on to broaden the scope and function of the site to attract entrepreneurs globally.

With all three founders hailing from OHM, Inc., a global enterprise dedicated to assisting emerging technology companies in selling their products to Fortune 2000 corporations throughout Europe and the United States, E.Factor was founded in the idea that strategic business networking can vastly impact the future of global business and your company’s role in it.

GEEK PASS from Geek Terminal Singapore

Get an exclusive identity at Geek Terminal Singapore – Singapore’s Premier Business Lounge in the Heart of the CBD with FREE Hi – SPEED wifi and FREE VoIP international calls

Business Travelers to Singapore check into the Geek Terminal, 55 Market Street Singapore

Geek Pass – your benefits…..

Geek Terminal has quite a few regulars and have been contemplating how they could start a membership program to give these members an identity exclusive to Geek Terminal, and reward these members ever so regularly for their support. The management of Geek Terminal gave themselves 3 criteria to meet;

a. The members must not carry another card. Everyone knows there’s too many cards out there fighting for wallet space. Geek Terminal’s members must NOT need to carry another card or anything extra to what they already have for that matter.

b. Without a card, Geek Terminal’s members’ must still be identifiable and be able to carry that identity as part of their existing daily “must have” accessory.

c. The identity must be able to store value or loyalty points so that Geek Terminal’s members can enjoy immediate benefits when they visit Geek Terminal.

Struggling for a while, the guys at Geek Terminal searched high and low, cracked their brains and finally stumbled on the solution. They sought the manufacturer and finally launched this solution last Wednesday (26 Aug).

Geek Pass

It is obvious to many what it is. Its such a simple idea which eluded many such that Geek Terminal is the first retail F&B outlet to deploy this solution commercially. The Geek Pass is an adhesive based on the e-grip which when pasted on your mobile phone or ipod, allows the device to “Stick” or “hang-on” to your car’s dashboard or any surface at an angle of up to 70 degrees. Not only that, the Geek Pass contains a small RFID chip that can store the member’s basic contact information and preferences. Third, the Geek Pass acts like a MRT card which enables its members to store or top up value in the card for expenditure at Geek Terminal. With this simple adhesive, Geek Terminal basically “TAGs” their members. The members can stick this adhesive to the back of their mobile phone. I stuck mine on my new white coloured E71 as below:

img_0184.jpg

What a match! Now that I am “tagged”, all I need to do is tap my phone on the Stick Key reader and voila! I can pay for food and drinks with it and enjoy an additional $1 bonus to spend for ever $10 I topped up into the Geek Pass. Woo hoo!

Geek Terminal SWOOPS Front Cover & 3 More Pages in The New Paper – itsReal

GEEK Terminal BUZZES but Singaporeans don’t open their POCKETS. APLINK walked in the door and started to read TNP, I had been hypnotised by the KFC ad on the back cover all the way home…then I saw the FRONT PAGE…then 3 more pages and photo’s on Geek Terminal’s Charity Drive Free Lunch ?
400 cheapsters some eating for free and not donating some only paying $2.00, expats coming to the rescue…its a good read if you get a copy… Danny looks good in his HAT….Personally I have been working all week so have not had time to pass by GEEK TERMINAL but from the sounds of things, I am not sure they need an extra mouth to feed…

TNP suggests that Singaporeans give to charities thru NORMAL Channels… where is the imagination in that ?

Geek Terminal – Connected and Connecting

Three of BNI Singapore’s Chapters, including my own Raffles, are weekly regulars at Geek Terminal. At our business networking meetings, we Connect to the Internet and Connect with other Business Owners…to know more about what the Geek Terminal offers read on…

SINGAPORE (CNN)Where’s the Geek Terminal in this city?

 

art.singapore.internet.afp.jpgNot just for geeks: An entrepreneur hopes to make Web browsing an enjoyable experience in Singapore. That’s what a Singapore entrepreneur hopes you’ll be asking on your business travels in a few years. Christopher Lee and his partners got fed up with the difficulty they faced trying to get connected to the Internet — and to electrical outlets — while on business trips.

The frustrations are familiar to many. A cafe or restaurant might offer free Wi-Fi, but then no electrical outlet, or vice versa — and the waitress gives you dirty looks for lingering. Or your hotel charges high connection fees. Or an Internet cafe is essentially an arcade, with loudspeakers blaring screams and explosions from violent online games — and every other customer is a teenage boy.

Smallest PC coming soon to a wall socket near you…itsReal

Geek Terminal may have to rethink their new power distribution system….U.K. firm Jade Integration has unveiled a computer so small, it fits into a wall socket and is powered via Ethernet. The Jack PC, a rival to the smallest PC in the world, can hook up to a standard monitor, keyboard, and mouse, and runs Windows CE, the stripped-down version of Windows often used in portable devices. It comes with up to 64 MB of flash memory and 128 megs of RAM, so don’t expect to play second life or Half-Life 2 on it, but it should be able to handle basic Internet functions decently.
