Apple probably won’t exist in 50 years - Long gone are the days of Jobs

I tried to care about this new iPhone and Apple Watch. I really did. When the first iPod came out, I bought one. When the first all-in-one iMac came out, I bought one. When the first iPhone came out, I went out and, positively dizzy with excitement, I bought one. Now I’m looking at this iPhone 6, and... meh.                 Apple did amazing thing...

The Majesty of Air Travel - VR helmets and standing seats

                Margins in the airline industry are horrible. Truly awful. And that’s not hyperbole; it’s a sober reflection on the facts. Depending on whom you ask airlines’ profit is between 1.0 and 2.6 percent, and that in an industry which relies on owning hundreds of airplanes, costing between $80 million and $390 million depending on size. Th...

The Home Depot gets itself hacked - The sorry state of cyber-security

                It seems that The Home Depot has fallen victim to the same kind of attack that had Target and eBay headlining the news earlier this year.

The healthcare market has hundreds of electronic health record (EHR) vendors competing neck-to-neck to differentiate their products and services.

Nuclear Power If it was a Nintendo game, it’d be called “Smash ‘em Smoosh ‘em”

                I am a nuclear power enthusiast. In fact, if I ever sell an app to Facebook, or find out I’m the long-lost heir apparent of the King of Saudi Arabia, I’m almost certainly going to start a company that makes all kinds of nuclear reactors. Despite the scientific challenges and PR problems associated with nuclear power, I do believe it...

Smart technologies can’t replace humans - Plane crash caused by overreliance on autopilot

                Slow news days seem to be characterized by the blogosphere reaching into its bag of social-injustice-topics and gleefully ranting about whichever it blindly selects. On every fifth iteration or so of this charming cycle, in between politicians breaking the economy and the top ten blah-blah-blah, we get to hear about how the machines...

Strategy on Wire

The 2008 documentary Man on Wire chronicles French high-wire artist Philippe Petit’s legendary walk between the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers shortly after their completion. Viewers lose themselves in Petit’s excitement, as he recounts (in dizzying detail) how he pulled off (and lived to tell of) “le coup.” The film happens to be on many “best o...
