Virgin Unveils Personal Music Hand Held Kiosks
 
 

On Wednesday, December 3 (4-8pm), Virgin Founder Sir Richard Branson will unwrap the most high tech music retail environment, at the Virgin Megastore, San Francisco. The droolcool digital gadget at the uptown international party scene will most certainly be the MusiKube Personal Music Guide (PMG).

Virgin Megastore members receive a customized HP iPAQ when they arrive at the store. Consumers scan product bar codes into the 802.11b Pocket PC that connects wirelessly to the MusiKube’s Encyclomedia™, a powerful MS SQL Server database comprised of licensed samples of over two-million songs, album reviews and related content.

The concept behind the hand held digital experience is to give consumers a personalized and interactive music discovery experience as well as provide real time marketing data for Virgin and their vendors. Virgin Megastore members can access their MusiKube PMG data anytime through the web or when they return to the outlet via the iPaq by scanning in their own personalized bar code.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
