Are Christmas Cards - Ghosts of Christmas Past ?
I read a recent head line suggesting Christmas Cards, your proper paper/card ones, are 'Greetings Cards' Ghosts of Christmas Past, and the email / landing page / PDF / animations etc are taking us all digital...
Interesting hypothesis. Begs some other questions, do people under 30 send cards, or have they outsourced this to Facebook or compressed Christmas greetings into 140 characters and a bunch of followers?
Having a technical bias I got to thinking where's this going? Indeed, what would the 'Greetings Card' Ghosts of Christmas future look like?
Tooled up with me Galaxy tab, Google, mince pies and a neighbours home made 'Mulled Port', off I went.
As an aside - a quick word on this 'Mulled Port'. DON'T! I know, I know - it's not big and its not clever, and I should have know better, etc etc, but its Christmas my shields were down, and he was SO sure this batch wasn't toxic... what could I say.
Anyway - off I went. Did you know 20% of all searches on Google are unique! You think that's impressive... quite soon ALL of mine were unique, typo's, fat thumb syndrome and Mulled Port Chuckles really nail it to Google.
By the way, is Port a hallucinogen? Because it wasn't long before I was seeing 'Greetings Card' Ghosts of Christmas Future everywhere. But, remember, I am a techy, and I tell you, I have seen the future!!
Don't believe me? Well - check this bad boy out I brought this classic Santa comedy routine back from the future, if you're reading this blog on old an '2D' medium, trust me this is HILARIOUS, and remember you saw it here first !
I got quite carried away with all this - I was going all in with this one, even had a brand name all ready to go. iHollo.way How cool is that ! Has a certain subliminal message an inevitably successful future acquisition perhaps?
Anyway - like many a good idea, turns out I wasn't first to pick this one up. Aha - you thought this was rambling nonsense. iHollo and Future communications with 3D / Hologram technology, well - seems I have been beaten to it I am afraid.
Don't believe me? Well I wonder who else had the idea.... go on, Google 'iHollo.way' or Click HERE
Ho hum, back to the day job ... want help with these Twitter Christmas Greetings ? :D
Here's wishing you a merry Christmas and I hope you have a fabulous time and if you like Port, maybe get to drink some of what I have been drinking ;)
