Techerous

My name is Bill, I am a recent graduate in Information Sciences and Technology from Penn State University and this is a place for me to post or give my 2 cents on the fascinating world of technology. I am now working for a pretty big technology related company whose name I will leave out just to avoid any possible complications, however far-fetched them happening may be. Music gets included from time to time as well.

Exclusive: this is Android TV Google’s plans for the living room come into focus with a simple TV interface, apps, and games

The end of the article says it perfectly, unless there is direct integration with Chromecast, as in it gets this skin, I’m not buying. I’m not getting Roku or any of the other set-top boxes, why would I shell out for this?

Forget Innovation, Who Is Your Chief Disruption Officer? Patrick Hanlon, forbes.com
I am sit­ting in the back seat of a taxi­cab in New York City. The traf­fic is Mid­town, stuck bumper to bumper.
“Every­thing is turned upside down!” the cab­bie shouts, pump­ing his arm up and down in the air. “Five years ago it was not like…

A relevant and increasingly important question… And maybe a title to remember for the future “CDO - Chief Disruption Officer”

Learn code, and learn it early. That’s the mantra among many in the entrepreneurial set, and there’s no shortage of apps and initiatives designed to help breed a generation of young coders, from Code.org’s “Hour of Code” to the children’s iPad app Hopscotch. What makes Kandu, an until-now stealth iPad app funded by Betaworks and operating in closed…

"Let’s solve this problem by using the Big Data none of us have the slightest idea what to do with." by Tom Fishburne
Some Sunday evening humor from Team Enhatch.  Funny thing though, you could probably say the same about CRM.  Many companies implemented CRM to solve the problem of fostering stronger customer relationships, yet somehow it missed the mark because it was too hard to implement or the people supposed to use it simply never used it.  They never thought about the missing link; engagement.

"Smart watch users consider functionality (81 percent) and comfort (79 percent) to be the most important attributes. In comparison, fitness band owners rank accuracy (70 percent) and battery life (64 percent) as the first consideration. Durability of wearable devices is critical to both owners of smart watches (82 percent) and fitness bands (73 percent)."

Good stats about wearables, broken down between smart watches and fitness trackers. Also, mind-blowing headline if it turns out to pass: “50 percent of Americans will buy wearable tech”. Truly, everything/everyone is getting quantified and everything is becoming connected. (from: Nielsen: 50 Percent of Americans Will Buy Wearable Tech | ClickZ)
