KCUR Up to Date with Steve Kraske

Since many people have asked, I thought I’d post a link to the summary & audio files from the Thursday March 11, 2010 show on KCUR Up to Date with Steve Kraske: Smart Phone Revolution. I had a great time and look forward to upcoming technology shows.

Steve Kraske sits down with Dustin Jacobsen, Director of Social Media and Technology at Barkley and Justin Parlette, Support System Administrator at the University of Missouri-Kansas City to examine smart phone applications.

We look at who makes apps… why we choose a certain phone based on their apps… and how the apps we see as games retailers see as dollar signs.

A few highlights:

  • Mobile stats: What devices are popular (4 min)
  • App usage: Favorite apps & usage (8 min)
  • Where we’re headed: Mobile social networking, navigation, augmented reality (11 min)
  • Mobile & retail: How purchases are influenced in store (14 min)
  • Plethora of apps available (18 min)
  • Texting & driving: There isn’t an app for personal responsibility (21 min)
  • Cat translator / cat speak (there’s an app for that) (26 min)
  • Health care apps (30 min)
  • Disney World apps (34 min)
