  • Chandan, Sun Microsystems' "Chief Executive Prankster," must have had a little time on his hands over the holidays, since his latest prank is a pretty slick product design concept. The All in One Card (or the AIO Card, as he calls it), is a credit-card sized gadget that Chandan envisions as a thin-client device (ha, get it?) with an e-ink-like display, which could be used as a media player, web appliance, and even GPS unit. The card would be powered by solar cells, would include integrated Bluetooth and WiFi for data transfer, and could be slotted into a smart card reader to hook up to a full-size display and keyboard. While this will probably never be made (at least not while Bluetooth and WiFi still exist as we know them), it's still an interesting concept, especially since Chandan bases it around his employer Sun's Ray thin client technology, which allows a device to run over broadband without a processor or hard drive.
  • This is really sad. What is Mattel thinking? The company recently released its Barbie Fashion Fever Shopping Boutique Playset, which lets Barbie fans set up their own store and use a "Fashion Fever" credit card to buy Barbie clothes and accessories. However, "Once the [credit card] balance hits zero, it will reset so you can continue to shop." Say whaaaaat? That's teaching young girls that you can rack up your credit card with no consequences!

  • Researchers at the Center for Future Banking, in collaboration with
    Bank of America, will explore how emerging technologies and insights into human behavior can transform the customers' experience and elevate the role of the bank in their financial lives. We seek to invent new ways to anticipate the needs and desires of customers down to the level of the individual, to put every customer in total control of his or her own financial futures, to rethink the experience of customer-bank interaction as virtual and physical reality become increasingly intertwined, and finally to leverage the unique position of a bank to make people's lives simpler and more fulfilling.
