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 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.

New Approach to the New Year

After taking a look back through our 2014 year in review: here we discovered something interesting... We got a little lost in technology this year.  Who hasn't?  When we look back over our most popular articles of all time, we see common themes.  SDLC, custom solutions, consulting, DNN, etc.  All things we DO.  All things we LOVE TO DO.  So, why all the tech articles?  We'll, they're so nice and new and shiny.  Everyone is talking about them.  However, the readers have spoken and it's time for us to get back on track

Wearable Tech: Intel and Opening Ceremony are Making a Holiday Push

With only a few shopping weeks left this holiday season, we're seeing wearable tech all over the news.  We've had several articles now on wearable tech and how, if they want to make it, they need to be more practical about it.  For instance, wearable watches, considering not everyone even wears one anymore -they should probably make sure that the watches they are making are appealing to people as something they would want to wear.  That's the thing about "wearable".  People are wearing this piece on their bodies.  It has to be a style that they would actually choose to wear for themselves.  Along those lines we have Barneys New York who is rolling out exclusive Intel Smart bracelets designed by Opening Ceremony in December.

Why iPhone 6 Issues will “Bend” but not Break Apple

Apple released it’s much anticipated iPhone 6 and 6 Plus a few weeks ago. The launch was incredible and set a new record for pre-orders. Sales of the phones topped 10 million sold during the phone’s launch weekend alone. Both models were extremely popular, but the iPhone 6 Plus sold out not long after pre-orders began and the shipping dates now aren’t expected for 3 to 4 weeks due to such high demand. Successful? I’d say so. Since the launch… things have been a little rocky for Apple’s newest iPhone. From #bendgate to iOS8 issues, this hasn’t actually been a smooth launch.

What’s Happening with Wearable Tech?
Lately, it’s looking more and more like our predictions about wearable tech back in March were true. Wearable technology is having a hard time catching on with mainstream consumers. Why? People want wearable tech to resemble a piece they would actually choose to pay for and wear (like another piece of jewelry). With such high price tags, it’s no wonder that the mainstream consumer isn’t jumping on the bandwagon for a piece of “jewelry” that they’d rather not be seen in.

Wearable Technology Trends – Not What I’d Call Practical
The ideas surrounding these new wearable technologies are brilliant and revolutionary; no doubt about that. But are they practical? Will they catch on mainstream? I’m having a hard time jumping up and down with a resounding, “Yes!” I’m not saying it’s impossible. I’m saying that wearable tech is only going to catch on mainstream if it’s practical, attractive, and stylish to wear. We’re not going to strap a brick to the side of our heads and walk around town. Well, some people might, but I’m talking about “mainstream” right now…

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.
