Viggle is the Perfect Companion for Your Home’s TV Room

The couch in front of the TV. It’s one of life’s great comfort zones. You know the spot. It’s where your body perfectly relaxes as you sit down and tune in to your favorite TV show or movie.

The best one in my opinion is Viggle.

While technology hasn’t caught up to science fiction in that regard, we do know that writers of Sci-Fi movies like Minority Report and 2001: A Space Odyssey got a lot of things right. Everything from video conferencing to “gesture based computing” and personalized ad serving are “imagined” things we saw in movies that a lot of us use in our everyday lives.

Meet the New coldwellbanker.com – Pocket Edition

I don’t know if it’s just me but doesn’t it seem like technology and innovation seem to operate in dog years? What happens in a calendar year or two is really more like 7 and 14 years worth of new technologies, data infrastructure, social networks, mobile devices, enhancements, software, so on and so forth. I might be exaggerating a tad bit (am I?) but we all know that “things” are moving lightning fast and consumers are expecting their favorite brands to offer experiences that are in lock-step with what’s new and relevant.
