Obama gets his mug on Tumblr account "Selfies at Funerals." You can now access all your social media and smartphone alerts from a snazzy piece of jewellery. And Google Glass just got a little less creepy with a new stop-animation video that is actually pretty cool.

While You Were Sleeping - Social Media and Marketing News Roundup - Konnect Digital

  1. 1. Is this the most important selfie of 2013?
  2. 2. President Barack Obama has tentatively joined the ranks of insolent teenagers everywhere on Tumblr account “Selfies at Funerals.” The account’s owner admits the link is tenuous, as the selfie was taken at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service, not a funeral exactly. The U.S Prez poses for the shot with U.K PM David Cameron and Denmark’s PM Helle Thorning Schmidt. The account’s owner has declared this selfie-to-end-allselfies the last post on the site which has garnered significant media attention for capturing a moment of contemporary zeitgeist.
  3. 3. Totally looks like Michelle, the First Lady of Epic Facial Expressions in my book, does not approve.
  4. 4. With this ring I thee wed… myself to all my incoming smartphone alerts.
  5. 5. Mashable have introduced us to the Smarty Ring. A Bluetoothenabled accessory allowing users to check smartphone alerts and manage calls from the finger. ‘Users can manage the settings for their Smarty Ring from a mobile app, and can even use the device as a watch, timer or phone finder. If a user walks more than 9 metres from his phone, the ring will beep to alert them that they've left something behind.’ An interesting sartorial choice, but the idea of a wearable gadget that springs into action when you’ve left your phone behind is a stroke of genius this writer could definitely do with.
  6. 6. The effort to make Google Glass cool continues, and kind of succeeds. CATCH: A Handimation through Glass is a stop-motion short of a surreal scenario in a cafe. The film was made over 4 days and consists of over 1,00 photos and drawings shot using Google Glass. For the first time ever I kind of think Google Glass might not be solely for this guy...
