Twitter gets AR (augmented Reality) app! the apocolypse is here!!!!
Do you use twitter? do your friend tweet using geotagging? well now you can see in real time exactly where they are tweeting from using augmented reality!
pretty cool eh? its 3 bucks at the app store for Iphones but only 3GS as it needs the 3GS\’s compass to align things up correctly. definitely a cool little app. although i think it is pretty single tasker and if your friends dont geotag their tweets you dont see anything. 🙁
Crutchfield gets a Mobile site worthy of the electronics giant!
I like crutchfield. ever since I Was doing custom car stereos back in high school and college crutchfield was a great place to get good products for the average guy with some higher end stuff here and there. well now all you have to do is point your smart phone at crutchfield.com and it senses your smart phones presence and sends you to a mobile formatted site that really looks slick. you can outfit your car as well as purchase right on your phone! awesome!
PR release is found here for all the information!
