Touring the Offices of Quirky in New York City


Back in January, I visited the Quirky offices to check out what it’s like to work there and how products get pushed through the company. For those who aren’t familiar with Quirky, it’s a company focused on making the invention process easier. Users submit ideas, those ideas get voted on, and the community comes together to try and get the product to market. It’s a really cool process.

BlackBerry 10 Launch Coverage From Both New York and Toronto


We’re going to have people on the ground at both the New York and Toronto BlackBerry 10 launch events so stay tuned for some great coverage.

Plastic Mobile is an agency specializing in mobile based in Toronto and New York. The company has recently launched a new AIR MILES app that takes many elements of foursquare, including checking-in to businesses, and builds an AIR MILES points earning and spending experience on top. AIR MILES has been around for some time now and the whole program has been in need of a mobile campaign like this for some time.

The Future of BlackBerry and Smartphone Display Cases


Two New York media companies, Stardust and BBDO, have teamed up to make one of the coolest BlackBerry display cases we’ve ever seen. The case uses 3D holographic imaging around the device to bring a unique experience to looking at the device.

We definitely recommend heading over to this site and watching the video.
