State of the (You)nion: Fall Social Media Updates

November 21, 2016 |

The fall season is full of change. Leaves change their color, pumpkin spice brutally divides a nation, and my social media feeds begin demanding sacrifice. If I went to a pumpkin patch but didn’t post pictures of my trip, is it like I even went? If I think Thanksgiving should get more acknowledgment but don’t rant about it on Twitter, is it like I even care? If I don’t make a big deal about the fall season in general, is it like I even care about anything?

But I digress.

What I do care about is providing you with a roundup of all the changes that are going on with social media over the past couple of weeks, and much like the nature of the fall season, there has been a lot of change going on with the Internet’s big players, starting with…

November 14, 2016 |

Automotive companies have been pushing the inclusion of VR into their sales strategies for the past year, and show no signs of slowing down. The reason? Those dang young people again. So, what are we to make from all of this? Does it mean that the car buying experience of today is no more?

Cobblers, the Note 7, and Crisis Management

November 8, 2016 |

Once upon a time, a cobbler lived in a village not too far from where you are now. He was quite skilled at his craft; in fact, there was one year where he even outsold a quite renowned cobbler a few villages over. This was thanks in part to a beautiful new pair of shoes he constructed that same year, and they were truly the talk of the townsfolk. “The best in all the land!” the people sang. One evening, there was a grand ball in the biggest village, and all the fair maidens (and gentlemen too) wore these shoes. The night was simply superb until a stroke of bad luck made it so a large number of the shoes spontaneously burst into flame.

Kids These Days!: Why an Understanding of Different Realities Affects More Than Just Millennials

October 17, 2016 |

Ugh, millennials. What with their “Playboxes” and “X-Stations.” They’re always on the “Snapbook” or “InstaFace” these days, and now they’re chasing “Pokeman” through my yard and trampling my azalea bushes! Now they’ve got these boxes on their face and keep raving about this “virtual reality” nonsense where they’re fighting dragons and saving princesses. Well let me tell you something sonny; back in my day, we were fighting Charlie over in Europe, and the only saving we did was our own rear ends from explosions! What kind of world do we live in where you need a “virtual” reality?

Quantifying Spock: How Vehicle Autonomy Presents an Ethical Quandary

October 7, 2016 |

It’s a crisp, fall afternoon, and you’re being driven through the city by your new autonomous car. As you marvel at how far technology has come, a group of children becomes detached from their tour group and crosses the road. In a stroke of bad luck, it seems that your car’s brake system has malfunctioned! You’d swerve out of the way, but a large dump truck is occupying the other lane, and a collision into said object will spell certain death for you and your fiancé in the passenger seat (did I mention she’s pregnant?) You’re now faced with a decision: do you save you and your loved, or the children who are (illegally, I might add,) crossing the street?
