For me it is both, but you the reader might not yet see that. This is fair, so let me explain. On June 6th 2022 I wrote ‘The mind, it continues regardless’ (at https://lawlordtobe.com/2022/06/06/the-mind-it-continues-regardless/) there I set out 8 pieces of IP, with several options. I mentioned jewellers on March 3rd with ‘It was one keyword’ (at https://lawlordtobe.com/2023/03/04/it-was-one-keyword/) I made additional references in 2022 as well. There is a growing market for augmented reality and malls would do well to tap into that IP when they still can direct the engaged people before it is too late.
Now we see (at https://www.technologyreview.com/2023/03/07/1069414/cartier-tiffany-ar-luxury-gen-z/) Technology Review giving us on March 7th ‘Cartier and Tiffany are getting into AR to sell luxury to Gen Z’, so they are over 6 months late but they are figuring out that there are additional income streams. I tried to warn Google, I tried to warn Amazon, yet they were all about the contracting economy. Now we see that I was right all along (yet again) and that is before some realise that the stakes are increasing, especially when a player like Kingdom Holding could secure the IP, my IP that is likely nothing like the one Cartier (or Tiffany) has. And my IP has other streams as well. I wrote about them a few times. But that is water under the bridge. What does matter is that this is yet another stage where Google and Amazon are shown that they dropped the ball (yet again) and that feels good. You see, when you are one man shouting in a forest that person is likely bug nuts. I get that, but now that Tiffany and Cartier are joining that choir I suddenly don’t look that simple or nuts anymore, which is a good confirmation to see. I merely wonder if I will be timely enough to claim my golden retirement and show these other fakers how they missed the boat a few times over. To be honest, I was not expecting to see this confirmation this soon, but it merely works to my advantage. I merely wonder if a player like Amazon is realising what they are leaving on the floor, including 5 billion for their Luna revenue. I know that I sound delusional, but that was the case a year ago too and now at least one of my IP are out there and Cartier and Tiffany are trying to get there. But that is merely my take on the matter, luckily for me I made part of it public domain 9 months ago, so there.
