What Will Rise From Uber's Ashes?


There has been quite a bit of churn in the waters around Uber during the last few years. Now that founder Travis Kalanick is no longer CEO, what does the future look like for the company, workers, drivers, investors and customers? Will Uber continue to grow and lead, or has it seen its best days? Most people connected to the company probably would say the same thing: They want calm but rapid growth. There is now a good possibility for growth if they get the right CEO and right strategy. However, Uber has been like two different companies in recent years.

Social's Turning Point


Microsoft’s acquisition of LinkedIn for more than $26 billion has created quite a stir — at least in my world. Ellen Levy reported that the deal can boast a number of superlatives if you look at it right: the largest sale of a consumer Internet company in history; the largest sale of an enterprise software/cloud company in history; the third-largest sale of a technology company since 2001; and the largest acquisition ever made by Microsoft. What’s interesting to me is how poorly the social networking industry is doing overall.

Six-pack of tablets and the iPad Pro: the tablet market is polarizing

It’s no secret that tablets aren’t selling quite as well as they once did. Compared with last year, the worldwide tablet market declined 7% in the last quarter, and 3.9% the quarter before that, according to IDC. It looks as though tablets may have peeked around the end of 2013.

Bogies Spotted: Jet Ventures Into Amazon's Airspace


Amazon has been in its prime for quite some time, but there’s a new show in town, and it claims that its prices are lower. Online merchant Jet opened its inventory of millions of products to consumers on Tuesday. While Amazon’s Prime subscription service offers consumers extra perks for $99 a year, Jet requires payment of a $50 annual membership fee to make purchases. Jet’s approach is focused solely on selling cheaper goods, as opposed to Amazon Prime’s more robust strategy of offering free shipping and access to digital content.

Rapper recorded album by posting up at NYC Apple Store every day for 4 months

A New York-based rapper has taken the phrase “demo unit” quite literally, saying that he parked himself at Apple’s SoHo store in Manhattan five days a week, for sixteen weeks, so he could use the store’s display computers to record a full-length album.

Fresh Takes on Shipping Perishable Online Purchases


It’s one thing to ship books and electronics across the U.S. — but it’s quite another to get fresh fruit, baked goods, meat, fish, prepared meals, raw meal ingredients, and other perishables to consumers’ front doors in prime condition. Once perishables are delivered to a customer’s door, they often have to sit there for an unpredictable amount of time before the customer gets home, which further complicates things. Cooled packages have been around for some time now, but most are not really at the level shippers and customers want them to be.
