Apple Falling Behind on AI

We’ve just had a big tech season. Between Facebook’s F8 conference, Google’s I/O Conference and Apple’s most recent Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) we’ve seen the big plans that these tech companies plan on focusing on over this next year. As a huge Apple supporter, I have to say, companies like Google in particular are giving Apple a run for their money.

Apple CEO Tim Cook In Depth

​We’ve talked a few times about Apple this year and the direction we think it’s headed.  I’ve made it pretty clear that I don’t think Tim Cook is the man for the CEO position.  This weekend, after 5 years in charge, Cook revealed a lot in a long interview with The Washington Post.  He revealed that running Apple is actually a lonely job filled with long hours, tough decisions, and a lot of weight on your shoulders.

Apple Has Lost its Mojo

Let’s talk about WWDC 2016 for a minute. Do be honest, I was completely underwhelmed before it even started.  I almost always watch every Apple keynote live.  This time? Truthfully? I didn't care.  I didn't watch it.  I knew that what was coming was going to be disappointing.  Why? The innovations have stopped coming out of Apple. Try to come up with one thing that they have innovated since Steve Jobs.

The Next Revolution in AI: How it Impacts You

​We’ve talked a little about how the AI in our existing devices works and how it needs to improve moving forward in order to better assist us.  What is the next big move in AI though?  Well, many think it will be an artificial intelligence living right in your ear.  In fact, it seems that in-ear assistants similar to the one featured in the movie Her aren't science fiction at all; but rather an imminent reality.  There are obviously a million different implications if this fully comes to fruition.  But, specifically, what does this mean to you as a business person? How will this impact your working world?

Consultants: The Importance of Being an Expert

​As a consultant, you’ll run into situations nearly daily where you are meeting new people who want to hear about what you do. I get questions regularly on topics that I consult on. Many times these conversations come up on the spot and out of a normal business environment.  So, what do you do when you’re approached, totally unprepared, and you have to talk about your business out of the blue? Do you know your business well enough that you can stop whatever you’re doing and come up with an intelligent informed conversation? As a consultant, this is a must.
