#CITITRENDS S03 EP 25: Bloom Impact, QLED TV and MOBEX 17

Show Promos-10The most packed show of the year! PERIOD!

First up were Carol Caruso and David Hutchful of Bloom Impact who are offer a digital service empowering businesses to learn about and access credit and savings products through their mobile phone.

Intriguing stuff if you ask me.

Then we launched into a conversation about Quantum Dot technology which has been baked into the latest iteration of Samsung televisions in what they call, QLED. My biggest take away from that chat was the ability of the tv to upscale the signal one receives to UHD quality to improve viewing pleasure. Then of course there is that function where you can transfer what you are watching on TV onto your phone.

Immersive stuff there.

Finally Tara Squire of Ecobank, Alain Gbeasor and George Spencer Quaye joined me for a chat about MOBEX 17 with kicks off on the 16th of October, 2017.

Just press play and enjoy.
