Will Amazon Go Reinvent Retail?


Every time I walk into a retail store, I complain. I grumble to my wife about the same pet peeve every time we go shopping. After walking the aisles and filling the basket, you then must go through the most inefficient checkout process. First you unload everything, then it’s rung up, then you put the items in bags that go back into your basket before you can walk out of the store. There must be a better way. Amazon Go suggests there is. Shouldn’t it be easy, with today’s technology, to cut through the mess and reinvent this process?

Can the TV Industry Sustain Falling Prices?


Every year in advance of the Super Bowl, there are big sales on TVs, and this year is no exception. It also could be a milestone, as TVs could be bottoming out. TV prices are near a record low, yet sales continue to slip. In the long run, that won’t be good for the industry or consumers. There was an “abrupt weakening of global demand for TV sets,” IHS Markit concluded last year. That finding is consistent with the fact that most consumers in America, Europe and parts of Asia today have two or more TV sets in their homes.

Which Wireless Carrier Is Best for You?


Which wireless carrier is best? Many studies are undertaken every year, and while they are interesting and accurate, they often are not that useful in selecting the best carrier for you. Why? Simple. They are generic studies, but you are not a generic customer. If wireless performance were the same for every customer in every location, then the studies would be helpful. However, that’s not the case. Every network has stronger and weaker spots, faster and slower spots — better and worse spots.
