Up to Speed - Envrnmt takes AR to the next level

First, Envrnmt created a simple to use tool to take AR experiences to the next level. Next, we rundown the news: Wall Street Journal is reporting that Sprint and T-Mobile are revisiting a merger; Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg finished his two days as the main attraction on Capitol Hill; and, The Pew Research Center has just released a report detailing the role Twitter bots play in spreading links from popular websites. Also, our most recent Best For A Good Reason Video was released, and a Verizon Technician makes his daughter proud.

The stories. 

Few technologies excite like augmented reality (AR). AR brings static images to life, transports the viewer into virtual locations, and creates dynamic interactive environments that can revolutionize the ways companies engage with their customers.

Sprint Corp. and T-Mobile US Inc. have rekindled merger talks, people familiar with the matter said, as the wireless rivals explore a combination for the third time in four years.

Facebook (FB) CEO and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg returned to Capitol Hill on Wednesday for five more hours of wide-ranging questions, this time from the U.S. House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Committees.

The role of so-called social media “bots” – automated accounts capable of posting content or interacting with other users with no direct human involvement – has been the subject of much scrutiny and attention in recent years.

Here’s the latest chapter of our Network Story: Best for a good reason.
