Be Inspired – Get the TED iPad App

Friday, October 15th, 2010

Oh man! Am I so freakin’ excited! TED released the new TED iPad app yesterday and in short, my review is: AWESOME!. Last night I took some time to dive into this amazingly simple and beautiful app – it’s the most exciting app I’ve had in months (I needed something to knock Angry Birds off its pedestal). It delivers all those super cool TEDTalk videos in a slick and simple user interface. Thel iPad-only features for exploring, saving and watching make for a much improved experience from their website – if that’s possible.

I love the catalog of 800 TEDTalks. I love the time-centric custom play list. My fav is the “Inspire Me” light bulb in the lower-left corner which reveals videos by category. The app is free and can be downloaded through the App Store in iTunes. Best video watching experience on my iPad yet!

Friday, September 3rd, 2010

Our promotional partner Sayvee has kicked off a cool contest! Here’s a chance to channel those negative marketing thoughts, which we all have (kind of like I did with my promo fail post). The object is to create a video under 1 minute in length about a marketing fail of some kind. This can be a true story or a fictional / ridiculous idea. Videos can be in any style you want. (Examples: comic, drawing, you in front of a camera, re-enactments etc.). Be creative. It turns out I’m a judge so don’t hold back – I love the wacky stuff.

The prizes are:
1st ($1100 – priceless value)
* iPad
* Website with domain name, hosting, and 1 year membership (Sayvee)
* A personalized “thank-you, you’re awesome” video posted on Youtube which includes an object of your choosing to be thrown at the guys from Sayvee and (be kind please, no permanent damage desired)

2nd ($300 value)
* iPod Touch

3rd ($110 value)
* 1 ticket to CREATIVEMIX-Vancouver’s Ideation Conference
* a ride in a 2011 Scion xB to and from the event (airport kinda thing)
