Connecting people is the ultimate goal of telecommunication. With advances in computing capability and ubiquitous access to various data, today's connection is focused on the blended information delivered by a converged mechanism, driven by the consumer¿s thirst for digital social interaction. Leveraging technologies like data mining, service-indication texting, and synthesized imaging, next-generation applications are incorporating more information into our daily communication. More services hence emerge from this kind of data federation. This article explores potential service augmentation by placing communication in a four-dimensional model that combines service delivery and external data augmentation. Using categorized information obtained by data mining techniques, a specially designed service indication text language could bring user interactivity to new levels. Tele-reality converges toward use of synthesized images or videos that are generated by merging and processing information about people, place, time, mode, weather, recent events and more. In addition, this article also illustrates how current standard user profiles and application programming interfaces are leveraged in order to accommodate such services.
