Chapter13 Future Users,ContentandMarketing Case Study Chapter 13: The Near Future Jason did not respond to her question but instead went over to his Motorola Blocks device and tapped the voice icon on the OSLI block. The Story Saturday Morning It was a sunnylate SaturdaymorningwhenJasonwoke up.He layin bedthinkingof all the things he had to do onhisday off work. As with any other morning, he got up and commenced his routine of takinga shower,shavingandmakinghimself some breakfast and coffee. During these preparations he enjoyedthe companyof Osli's voice. She read him the news from last night. Apparently Apple's shareshad closedforthe weekatan all-time low,anothershipment of raw petrow had been stolen and Lady Gaga's avatar had been hacked. Osli then moved on to sharing the local happenings includingthe openingof a new Argos food store a couple of blocks away and the re-election of the mayor.

"Osli,please stopwiththisboringnews.Giveme anupdate onthe local salesand try to keep it a bit more interesting this time," said Jason as he finished his meal and got ready to go out. Your item - MB HardDrive 3x5 - has been dispatched and should be here in about 2 hours. User John615 had two kittens for sale, £30. User SmartyPants is selling a classic vintage car - Mercedes S180 - for £1,300." Osli continued. "User TotalBiscuit is selling an Oculus Iris for £620. User BuyMe has... "Wait!" interruptedJason. "Suspend the delivery until tomorrow morning. And what was that last one? Give me more details." Osli changed her tone indicating a change in stream and stated, "One Oculus Iris, version 3.7, compatible with MB devices after 2.8. Improved camera functions including 360 degree mode and haptic feedback. No discounts available." "Great, make the purchase" ordered Jason. "Wouldyoulike itdeliveredorwouldyoulike topickitup from 15 Tsarevo Street?" asked Osli. "It is less than 18 minutes away on foot." Jason did not respond to her question but instead went over to his Motorola Blocks device and tappedthe voice iconon the OSLIblock to switch back to the manual interface. He knew he spent a bittoo much time listeningtothe voice of the OnlineShopLivelnterface,which everyone called Osli. Eventhoughhe likedherconversationshe wouldpreferone withNicole whohe hadbeendating for last two months and who he had planned to meet not too much later. Jason confirmed the order and thenmanually re-configured the blocks in front of him to invoke the security mode and set an intelligent message response for incoming messages. Motorola Blocks - MBs - were the runaway success story for the company. The development had come out of an experimental collaborationwith an anarchist Dutch design collective who originally claimed they were dismantling modern society "block by block". The MB device could easily be separated into pieces by Jason - each block connected wirelessly with hidden magnets - and built intonewconfigurationsjustaseasily.Althoughsometimesthe combinations produced unexpected results. Despite Motorola's overall control of the project there were still elements of the design collective's original anarchic ideas in some blocks. Jason had now picked up a half screen block, a small hard drive block, a function block and a battery block. With his 'phone' in hand Jason left the house to collect his new impulse purchase. On hiswayto TsarevoStreet,Jasonlookedthroughhissocial feedof connections.He had'filtered to 'nearby'.Osli had also filtered the feed to only show the most interesting items. There was a party tonight at 64 King Street and a status from Ivan, "Such a beautiful morning". Jason automatically

Why, Jason did wonder though, did Osli think this message was interesting? Aftercollectingthe OculusIris block there was no time to experiment. Jason had to prepare for his date.Jasonwalked to the new Argos foodstore. He ignored the advertising for the standard blocks that all shops now carried and tapped in the codes for a bottle of rosé and a 3 brassica bouquet at the orderingterminal.He scanned his 'phone' across the payment paid and was then prompted for hisdailyauthorisationcode.Jasonwasalwaysabitfrustratedbythis extra security but he knew the benefitsandrealisedthatthiswas inevitably because it was another purchase in less than an hour. He quickly asked Osli for the code 'she' had generated earlier in the day while he was sleeping. Jason'svoice was the final security check to obtaining his romantic gestures, but he also knew that hispurchaseswouldmatchhis current profile which included his message on the Social Map about today'sdate withNicole. Jason already knew how important this matching could be when some of hisearlierimpulsebuysof experimentalblockshadcausedOsli problemswiththe bankwhenittried to block the payment because they didn't match his current profile on the Social Map. Jason only foundoutlaterwhenOsli providedaterse summaryof situation,"Payment issue over the purchase of fractal block is now resolved." and he had then pressed 'her' for more details. Aftercollectinghiswineandbouquet,Jason walked towards the fountains in the main square next to the UniversityforIntegratedCommunications.He casuallyflippedthroughhissocial feedand saw that Ivan's new status was at the top of the 'interesting' and 'nearby' messages again. It just said, "Such a great day". "Osli, what are you doing?" Jason muttered under his breath, knowing that he had switched off voice commandsafterpayingin Argos. As he was about to mark down Ivan's status again Jason saw that there were three commentsbeneaththe statusandthese definitely grabbed his attention. The firstcame fromTracey,Ivan's wife. "Whywould you say that, what's so great about it?" Jason knew that Tracey was away travelling on business for a week. The next message was also from Tracey, "What are you doing at Sydney's?" Ivan hadn't turned off automatic location tagging. The last message was from Nicole: "He is amazing. You don't deserve him you old hag!" Jason had already stopped walking. Nicole was temporarily house sharing with Sydney. Jason turned around and walked home. Osli and a bottle of rosé would be his company tonight.
