From the pristine Southern California city of Santa Monica, a double threat is hitting the streets. Southpaw (Music from and Inspired by the Motion Picture), the soundtrack to The Weinstein Company motion picture of the same title will be released on July 24th at the same day the film hits theaters — via Shady Records/Interscope Records. Eminem serves as Executive Producer of the album, which includes two tracks from the multi-platinum rapper: the first single, “Phenomenal,” and “Kings Never Die,” featuring Gwen Stefani. Eminem also appears on two songs from his side project with Royce Da 5’9″, Bad Meets Evil. In addition, the soundtrack includes music from 50 Cent, The Weeknd, Action Bronson & Joey Bada$$, Slaughterhouse and more. In addition, the soundtrack includes two arrangements from the late James Horner, the Academy Award-winning composer (Titanic, Avatar) who scored the film and tragically passed away earlier this week. The complete track-listing for the soundtrack is below.
The film, directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) and written by Kurt Sutter (Sons of Anarchy, The Shield), is the riveting story of Billy “The Great” Hope, the reigning light heavyweight boxing champion of the world (played by Academy Award nominee Gyllenhaal). Hope seemingly has it all, with an impressive career, a beautiful and loving wife (Rachel McAdams), an adorable daughter (Oona Laurence) and a lavish lifestyle. When tragedy strikes and his lifelong manager and friend (Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson) leaves him behind, Hope hits bottom, and turns to an unlikely savior at a local gym, Tick Willis (Forest Whitaker), a retired fighter and trainer to the city’s toughest amateur boxers. With his future riding on Tick’s guidance and tenacity, Billy enters the hardest battle of his life as he struggles with redemption and to win back the trust of those he loves.

Open mobilemedia will be talking to traditional banks are going to do in the future. The 2015 Mobile Banking and Payments USA Conference asked over 100 banks several questions. The topic at hand was future trends and what we could expect from our banks and our consumer products. The big take here was one word: mobile innovation. It is predicted that nearly 40% of this institutions will have one priority, followed by security, omni-channel integration, branch reinvention and big data management with analysis.
The financial institutions who participated said that the biggest challenge is technical innovation and their least concern is data loss prevention. I find the latter comment is concerning but my revelation in studying this report is that they remark that regulatory change, risk management, customer retention had close numbers, all in the high teens. Technology innovation had a double figure which rests at 42.3%.
What buzzword will you here if your client is in banking industry? Tokenisation garnered high numbers which is applied to data security, it is the process of substituting a sensitive data element with a non-sensitive equivalent, referred to as a token that has no extrinsic or exploitable meaning or value. It will allow the payment industry stakeholders when developing, evaluating, or implementing a tokenization solution, including how tokenization may impact Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) scope. This document provides supplemental guidance on the use of tokenization and does not replace or supersede PCI DSS requirements.
With that in mind, the topic of mobile continues to be the leader while telephone representation or branch is seen in the rear view mirror. It is iffy that wearables be the future, it won’t. The bankers agree it is going to be a wait and see opportunity. The IOS and Android will be the main foundation for all innovative solutions while Microsoft is “not so much”.
Other standouts in the report gave me a pause for possibilities. Fin tech startups are the leading threat to traditional banks. Followed by large tech companies and oddly enough shadow banks. Not sure what other is. Countries maybe. A second eye glaring number is that only 25% of banks will budget for mobile, they will spend 53.6% of their operating expense.
This is a report you should keep in your hip pocket because you never know when it will come in handy.

I have many friends across my social networks and I wanted to reprint this article today. This Silicon Valley executive, Marc Canter gives us great insight on his journey through the road of success with startup companies and everything tech. Being one of the inner circle of the digital frontier, founder of Macromedia, Marc take is relevant for any entrepreneur. I would be remiss is I have a great memory of myself being a young digital designer meeting this professional in a educational tour of what was to become. This relevant peer professional is back in the Bay Area and we will see his Midas touch to his new venture, Interface.
Thomas Husson and Julie A. Ask with Luca S. Paderni, Carrie Johnson, Ryan Skinner, Jennifer Wise, Fatemeh Khatibloo, Denee Carrington, Laura Naparstek, and Kasia Madej published a white paper exploring the mind shift of marketers and brand campaign deployment. The striking prediction the group saw an alarming common thread in the media marketing mix: We will see in this year that brands who under-invest in mobile channel will not achieve their expectations in a ROI analytics. A more important point is that brand who engage in the mobile experience will thrive.
The Forrester Team gave us pertinent insights on the marketing intellect behind brands campaigns that drive the mobile experience and those marketing teams who are shortsighted in their marketing plans. The latter group see the mobile experience for consumer as another channel instead of driving catalyst for the marketing media mix.
Forrester forecasts that 42% of the total population globally will own a smartphone by the end of 2015. Forrester also believes that in 2015, the gap will increase between marketing leaders who re-engineer their businesses to deliver valuable mobile moments and the majority of marketing executives, who will continue to take a myopic approach by considering mobile as just another digital channel.
Will there be a shift from mobile apps? The researchers says yes. The focus for market professionals will be first-party data; privacy; analytics; brand experiences; and the broader digital business transformation underway and the role mobile will play in it.
Forrester’s Q2 2014 Global Mobile Executive Online Survey received 414 complete or partial responses from professionals from our ongoing Marketing and Strategy Research Panel. The panel consists of volunteers who join on the basis of interest and familiarity with specific marketing and strategy topics. For quality assurance, panelists are required to provide contact information and answer basic questions about their firms’ revenue and budgets. Forrester fielded the survey in April and May 2014. Respondent incentives included a summary of the survey results. Exact sample sizes are provided in this report on a question-by-question basis.

Pure product placement is the new economy.
Your six pack is delivered 10x faster. Sony knows this. Caterpillar, NetApp, Agilent Technologies also knows how to be first. In today’s connected technology, a company’s agility can be radically improved by ThingsWorx’s progressive platform. The explosion of devices and the demand of technology needed for agricultural, commercial transportation and above mentioned companies.
I recently reviewed their platform. What I like about it is the drag and drop feature, the intuitive population that data points arrive for your back office connected dashboard. You do not have to use the cloud service, if you have your own server use it, the choice is yours. I imagined software agents pushing or pulling all your mobile devices, navigational data, inventory control or equipment with a click of a customized dashboard. Watch a ThingWorx Demo! You will see for yourself and you will be sold.
One of the best presentations I have seen is the analogy of “How does my beer stay cold?” story. We can always envision being the truck driver of your favorite beer. It’s cold and coming to your nearest grocery store or neighborhood convenience store. For you, all you care about is the freshness.
In this scenario, the presenter talked about the deployment of delivery and advantages of the connected transportation system made by ThingWorx in the cloud platform, one beer manufacturer in the Midwest and 5 delivery in route to the several drop off points along a spider like web of freeways. With a nimble dashboard and a flying pointer across the screen, he maneuvered with ease. The creation of real time deployment and tracking, all five trucks was spot on with delivery time, keeping your brew chilled and ready to pop the cap.
This is why the company became the CES 2015 recipient of the Compass Intelligence as well as Enabling Technology of the Year and App Development / Enablement Platform of the Year in its category. Axeda was named Enabling Company of the Year. ThingsWorx and Axeda were showcased at the recent CES International Show.
