Steam has a very active community and so this allows them to receive excellent feedback about what their uses like and don’t like which still maintaining a considerable revenue stream.

Here’s a video showing some pretty amazing technology: simple but effective. Personally,I’m not looking forward to this stuff entering the world of first-person shooters. I already duck and weave when I play them, which amuses the kids no end =).
There’s some very interesting data compiled in this infographic. What is fascinating is how much Facebook dominates. The question everyone wants to know is will it continue? I expect over the forthcoming year we’ll see an increase in the use of Twitter and possibly Google Plus as well.
This commercial is a beautiful use of narrative to draw the viewers in. The stories are personal and unusual. The build-up is spine-tingling. They’re compelling. You need to know what happens, which is indicative of quality storytelling. It’s almost textbook. However, I have to ask, does it work as an ad?
Goodreads have published a great infographic detailing the top 5 books that their readers have abandoned. What I find particularly interesting is the points at which people abandon books. It seems that if a reader gets past the first hundred pages of a novel most will finish it. Great stuff.
