This week, Shy and I go crazy about Japanese videogames and Japanese clothes. No place combines these two things quite like UNIQLO, a unique, affordable and very classy Japanese clothing retailer. For instance, did you know that UNIQLO sells an entire line of Metal Gear themed T-Shirts in celebration of the series’ 25th anniversary?
If you’ve never taken a #swag walk through a UNIQLO (or a Wal-Mart, as you’ll see in a video we highlight) then you have to watch this week’s episode of the #SocamShow. And be sure to follow me on Socialcam to catch each episode as it airs every Friday at 3pm!
One thing that many small business owners overlook in promoting their businesses and communicating with employees is video. Yes, I know, the costs of video are often prohibitively high—that is, if you’re looking to shoot a professional commercial or similar video spot. But what if all you need is a good mobile video shot with your iPhone or Android smartphone? Small Biz Go Mobile sponsor AT&T provides a great app for free to its mobile consumers called AT&T Video Capture. Rather than having to upload, title & tag videos on a platform like YouTube, AT&T Video Capture lets you stream live and pre-recorded video straight to your employees and co-workers. Theres even a desktop version that lets you organize and archive those videos as well.
I can think of a ton of cool use cases for this technology. Field service technicians who are expected to solve problems in a single on-site visit, could use AT&T Video Capture to solicit advice and help from co-workers back in the office. Media broadcasters could use this to deliver the news live or report back to HQ with raw footage of an ongoing event. Want more ideas on how you can ramp up your business with AT&T Video Capture? Listen to my latest Small Biz Go Mobile podcast to hear all of my tips.
Today we take a first look at the Samsung Galaxy SIII on AT&T, perhaps the year’s most anticipated Android smartphone release.
With an amazing camera, sleek design, fast processors, solid battery life, and the latest version of Google’s mobile OS, Ice Cream Sandwich, this is the must-own Android handset of 2012. You can pre-order one today at the link att.com/galaxy-s-iii

Doing a presentation/pitch using your iPad or iPad 2 can wow your potential clients. Prepping for a presentation in the lobby while waiting for your preso to start can be nerve-racking.

That’s cool if you bought the iPad 2.

The Cable and Telecommunications Association for Marketing (CTAM), an industry trade group, recently hired venerable market research firm Nielsen to conduct a study of Americans’ mobile video app viewing habits, and have just released their findings, in a report entitled “Roadmap to Video Apps (What Makes Viewers APPY?).” Access to the full study will set you back a cool $13,500, but CTAM has issued a press release which includes some of their key findings, and it looks as though some of what they’ve found is pretty unexpected.

It’s a known fact that as a small business owner or entrepreneur, you are twice as busy at making your endeavor great as merely clocking in and out of a 9-5 gig everyday. In addition to taking care of business at ungodly hours of the day, you still have to do your regular home and family stuff. You probably can’t afford a full-time assistant and you can’t add extra hours in the day to run back and forth to your local office supply store.
