When Brisbane Buyer’s Agent John Leighton approached platinumHD, he wanted a web site that could not only handle a lot of rich media but one designed around big, bold ‘statement’ photography.

The Mighty Slideshow Versus Smart TV

This could also be called “The never-ending search for the NEXT big thing.” A good friend of mine asked me the other day ‘Do you think that’s it for video?’ in the real estate business. The early adopters get restless when they know the rest of the herd is on the way. Video’s indent in […]
