Cloud-Based Content Follows Users Seamlessly Between Devices

Cloud-Based Content Follows Users Seamlessly Between Devices

ShiftD is a cloud service that allows users to quickly take note of URL’s, articles, and other digital content, and access it seamlessly via mobile, desktop, and web-based applications. While we have seen many good manifestations of cloud-based content management, what struck us is a potentially interesting use of the service in tandem with RFID, creating a content-everywhere experience that follows the user. ShiftD co-founder Nick Bilton of the New York Times explains a concept integration with the NYT below:

“We made an experiment and put an RFID chip into the phone, the computer and the television. The chip was there to track the user’s reading. When a user stopped reading a story on the phone as he or she arrived at work, it opened it again on the desktop. When the user entered the living room, related videos to the story were presented on the television screen”
