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.

What is the big attraction in music to the global tech-titans? It might be that we are on the cusp of redrawing e-commerce.

It seems that it’s agreed-upon that human curation is the focus of music platforms for now.  It’s not clear how that will solve what at least I see as the main issue which is that artists need to be fairly compensated, but it could be a start.  I hope that we find a different way besides advertising to make money on internet content in general soon though.

What Everyone Gets Wrong in the Debate Over Net Neutrality | Enterprise | WIRED

I think it’s a little unfair for this article to say that everyone is “getting the debate wrong” when the point they make is the same thing in spirit.  Still, it is definitely important to keep in mind that the danger is in non-competitiveness amongst the ISP’s.

Wearables, Drones Scare Americans - InformationWeek

Google has some public relations to do. People remain wary of tech breakthroughs including care-giving robots and drones, Pew research …

Via InformationWeek

I find the headline misleading.  If you read the article, it seems to be more specific scenarios that scare people rather than the idea of drones and wearables themselves.  Besides that I think drones have gotten a bad rep in that everyone at least subconsciously associates them with their military application.

The New York International Auto Show will open to the public on Friday, giving car fans direct access to the future of automobiles. Here are 6 must-see cars.

Any word on whether there’s anything about the Open Automotive Alliance or Carplay there this year?

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?

Google developing SDK to make Android the standard for wearables

I don’t think the wearables trend is picking up quite as well as the companies seem to believe but creating a “standard” certainly helps. I’m assuming this SDK has special API’s that can allow it to be customized to non-specific devices and that’s what makes it special?
