Dominos-Pizza1

(PCM) Recently, Domino’s Pizza has partnered up with technology company Nuance to create “Dom”, which is a mobile voice to assist customers with voice-enabled ordering.

Much like Apple’s Siri, “Dom” can be called upon for the Domino’s Pizza iOS or Android app. You can vocally tell “Dom” how you like your pizza and he will assist you with creating the perfect pizza pie.

While we have not tried it out for ourselves just yet, sources claim that “Dom” has a very natural and humanlike voice and the experience is meant to be the same as if you were ordering the pizza by phone and speaking with a real human being.… Full Story

Abercrombie2

(PCM) There are some big changes in store for clothing retailer Abercrombie and Fitch and we say it’s about time!  The teen-geared clothing retailer has faced a ton of criticism and public outrage due to it’s scantily clad models, racist hiring policies, and club-like shopping atmosphere. These factors all contributed to a nearly 77% drop in profits which led the company and it’s CEO Mike Jeffries to introduce some big changes and hopefully win back some of their target demographic.

The stores will now no longer feature a night-club vibe with heavy thumping beats and probably the biggest change will be that the display mannequins will actually be clothed instead of featuring those oh so offensive ads on display.… Full Story

Sponsored Post: Burger King Subservient Chicken Redemption

We always love a good redemption story, so when it was brought to our attention that Burger King’s Subservient Chicken was back in action we could resist digging a little deeper and finding out just what happened after Subservient Chicken dropped out of the spotlight.

It was ten years ago when Subservient Chicken was at the very height of his popularity starring in advertisements for Burger King’s TenderCrisp campaign. The incredibly popular ad’s were interactive (something very cutting edge at the time) and people could visit the Subservient Chicken website and type in commands for him to complete all kinds of tasks such as moon walking, laying an egg, picking his nose and head banging to name a few.… Full Story

Leaked Photos Of The iPhone 6 Surface!

(PCM) In what we are certainly hoping is not an April Fools Day joke, new photos of the iPhone 6 have surfaced and they reveal a new slimmer design, rounded corners and a full screen display.

iPhone6

Most of the rumors that are currently circulating the net claim that the target release date for the iPhone 6 will be this September and it will most likely be called the iPhone Air.

The photos which are actually renderings from an Apple subcontractor feature a much thinner and more rounded design that could most easily be compared to the HTC One. What excites us the most is that the screen appears to finally reach the edges of the phone, which is something that iPhone users have complained about for quite some time.

This rendering seems to match up the closest to what has been leaked out on the MacRumors website. However there are … Read the rest…
