Online Photo Sharing in Plain English

Hopefully none of the readers of SoulSoup will need this, but in case you need to explain online photo sharing to your mom, you will love this. Besides, CommonCraft shows are too adorable to miss out.

The Wall of Helsinki : Interaction design from future

with 2 comments

Via Communication Nation found this piece of interactive information tool.

The city of Helsinki offers an interactive screen “The Wall” that visitors can use to find out more about the city and even send their friends pictures. It’s an interactive touch screen that let’s you move the on screen elements to any position at your demand.

Awesome! Kind of reminds me of “Minority Report” with Tom Cruise :)

StudioDell : Where learning meets marketing

without comments

Check out StudioDell, the nicely categorized, simple ‘how to’ type video & audio tutorials (vodcasts) for Dell products. There are 3 channels, based on the type of user- Home, Small Business and IT Pro. At the home channel, you can share your stories by uploading your own video. Whereas in the IT Pro channel, some of the best practices are shared. You can download the videos too.

This, I believe, is the future of marketing. Providing useful information and knowledge about your product to your users, more they know about your product, more they will buy!

StudioDell is designed to help you get the most from your Dell experience. Through videos and podcasts, we’ll share Dell’s expertise on emerging technologies and use interactive tools to communicate directly with you.

Here goes the feeds

All Channels | Home | Small Business | IT Pro

There are plenty more feed options at there site, as well as iTunes subscription. Way to go Dell!
