Ad agencies say consulting firms never actually produce work for clients. Here's how Accenture Interactive is proving them wrong.

Accenture Interactive had a sprawling showcase at SXSW last week to highlight all the work it is doing for brands, its most splashy presence at the festival yet. The company showed off a facial recognition-powered photo booth for Disney, an augmented reality activation for countertop maker DuPont, and other branded experiences. This is the latest example of how data-rich consulting firms are encroaching on ad agencies by pitching themselves as more strategic and tech-savvy.  Ad agencies often...

Disney/Fox Deal is Done, But Don’t Expect to See X-Men in the MCU Anytime Soon

Well, it happened. Disney’s acquisition of key 21st Century Fox entertainment assets has officially gone through, and we are now living in a post-Fox world.

Some will claim that this is a necessary step in these tumultuous times, and a certain section of fandom will take a bizarre solace in the fact that at least this acquisition means that they’ll get to see the Fantastic Fou...

Best things to do Curacao

As soon as he smelled the cigarette, Miguel was not having it. “Hey!” he yelled at a doughy man walking up the rocky path to the top of Curaçao’s Mount Christoffel. “Put that out! The hell you doing?” The man with the lit cigarette looked up like he was about to get mugged. Miguel, our hiking guide, stood uphill from him, his large, dark frame a menacing sight form below. The man nervously extinguished his cigarette on the closest rock. “Don’t throw that on the ground either,” Miguel added. T...

As exciting as it was to believe our old buddy LucasArts was back in some form, the licen...

Disney resurrects Lucasfilm Games for a mysterious Star Wars project

Disney appears to be reviving Lucasfilms Games on the sly, hiring people to work on “interactive products.” The job postings are vague, but we can surmise Disney might be making a new Star Wars game. That’s exciting not just because, you know, Star Wars, but because it could mean Disney is getting back into games after all these years. “Lucasfilms Games.” To quote an old master, that’s a name I’ve not heard in a long time… a long time. It’s the original name of LucasArts, the legendary studio th...
