Best Camera Predicted IBM/Apple AI partnership

Best Camera predicted that IBM Watson would team up with Apple coreML. Read about it here and  also here

See prediction here: best camera post predicts coreML and Watson team up

Basically there are now IBM Watson Services for Core ML.  So it’s possible to build apps that access powerful Watson capabilities right from iPhone and iPad. The Cloud comes to the phone. 

That's one for the good guys.  

After I sent Rain Cards a Get Well Card?

After I poked fun at the ASO used for the Rain Cards App in the Apple App Store as a bad example, they have created a press kit that actually makes sense. I'm betting that with their next release, they might improve the ASO as well.

Remember in a prior post I talked about how to write an elevator pitch. This is classic.

Our Company X
Has Developed (describe your app and or service quickly)
To Provide for (your target customers)
By Solving (what problem does your App solve and why?)
With our Unique (what makes your App unique?)

Someone at Rainhut has been reading my blog after I poked fun at them. 

This is what I found here on their rain cards landing site   Just click the Press Kit button to see.

Rain Cards Press 

"Rainhut Inc has developed a native IOS Rain Cards App for mobile users to quickly create and print beautiful greeting cards for any occasion.

Rain Cards provides the convenience of mobile and the power of desktop editing with our unique and friendly Rainmaker Wizard.  Personalization has never been easier. The App includes an accurate 3D preview and a nearest Walgreens Store finder. 

Rain Cards comes with a gallery of thoughtful beautiful designs. New card designs and art published by artists to the Rainhut Cloud are instantly available to owners of the free Rain Cards App! Just pay for printing and shipping. Or just pickup the printed cards at any Walgreens same day."

They followed with a link to images that can be used by journalists writing articles and links for a couple videos hosted on youtube. Not bad RC, please accept my Congratulations Card. Keep this up and I might include Rain Cards in the review of the Best Greeting Cards Apps for 2018 coming soon.

The Brave Ones

Where would we be without the Brave Ones. The entrepreneurs who followed their dreams and made the world a better place. The Brave Ones series is about these dreamers. 

Richard Branson loves to blend adventure with business. 

These are the people that inspire us all.

“I love to sort of tilt at very big companies and see if we can shake them up and keep them honest.”

Wow! March 24 March for Our Lives

Bring your Smart Phones

Historic photos; over half a million smart phones will converge on DC for this March on March 24th.

Between 500,000 and one million are expected for the kids. Yet the government has banned them from the National Mall. Not kidding! They used this same tactic in the 60s to avoid an accurate count and photos of the mall full of protesters. But It’s not easy to ban a million people and they are all armed with Camera Apps, unlike the 60s. Do the feds plan to bring in troops? I hope this doesn’t turn into a Kent State. Will mothers pound on the doors of the capital building? Cameras are the great equalizer. They record the truth. 

On the night of Thursday, Nov. 13, 1969, the “March Against Death” began. By the time that weekend was over, Washington, D.C., had seen more protesters than any single event in its history had drawn. Here we go again. 

Take some historic photos like this
