When Verizon Wireless wanted to drive more foot traffic to its retail stores last winter, the brand supplemented traditional advertising an onsite program called Stop Motion Studio.

Customers could create short, animated videos, decorated with tiny snowmen, reindeer, Santas and other props, to use as their holiday greeting. While they were playing mini-movie mogul, they were also learning about their phone’s capabilities, accessories and add-ons.

The event, which spawned an ongoing workshop series, shows just how much the advertising business has evolved. We’re moving into two-way relationships between companies and consumers, occurring everywhere from Tumblr, to Instagram, to store fronts and taxis.

How Targeted Ads Work

Do you get that creepy stalker feeling when seeing some ads? What you are seeing are retargeted advertisements. Retargeted ads are designed to capture the attention of the browser-window shoppers of the internet. While we continue our research around the web, they are tailored to redirect us back to just the right pair of socks. If you are a website owner — like eBay, flipkart or Amazo — ad tech companies provide a few lines of code for your website. Whenever someone visits your site, the code drops a browser cookie that will mark you anonymously as someone who has visited this site. After that, whenever you load Facebook or any other website with ads, the advertising networks will look at the cookies on your computer using the information about which websites you’ve visited to choose which ad to display.

Brands Are Not Your Friends

When was the last time Coca-Cola did anything nice for you? People tend to talk to brands on the internet like they might have lost their virginity to them. They very well may have—an empty bag of @Doritos under the mattress or in the parking lot of a @McDonalds—but it's a one-way relationship. Your sister's face has never appeared on a highway billboard, but Nestlé and Burger King show up in the same streams as your loved ones. This is the business model of the social web.

A Brief History of the ATM

The cash dispenser was born almost 50 years ago, in 1967. For many, this was the first tangible evidence that retail banking was changing; the introduction of the ATM marked the dawn of contemporary digital banking. The ATM finds its origins in the 1950s and 1960s, when self-service gas stations, supermarkets, automated public-transportation ticketing, and candy dispensers were popularized. The first cash machine seems to have been deployed in Japan in the mid-1960s. The most successful early deployments took place in Europe, where bankers responded to increasing unionization and rising labor costs by soliciting engineers to develop a solution for after-hours cash distribution. This resulted in three independent efforts, each of which entered use in 1967: the Bankomat in Sweden, and the Barclaycash and Chubb MD2 in the U.K. Source: A Brief History of the ATM — The Atlantic Rights to all content (text, images, videos etc.) with post source.
