It’s been five years since NASA’s Curiosity Mars Rover landed on the red planet on August 6, 2012. The rover survived the much-publicized “seven minutes of terror” and safely landed near Mount Sharp.

Comcast Rolls the Dice With Xfinity Instant TV


Comcast has led the way in cable television ever since it acquired AT&T Broadband a decade ago. However, in recent years, new technologies — like IPTV and wireless TV from new competitors like AT&T and DirecTV Now — have been eating away at Comcast’s growth. That’s why Comcast not only has introduced Xfinity Mobile, which is its new wireless service, but also is getting ready to launch its own IPTV service, Xfinity Instant TV. I congratulate Comcast on this forward thinking, but there are no guarantees that IPTV will work for Comcast.

Blockchain: CRM's Next Frontier


We’ve seen a parade of technologies coming into the front office since 2000, including browser-based cloud computing, social media, mobile technology, workflow, journey mapping, and big data and analytics. It’s typical that at first there’s only a tenuous relationship between the technology and CRM’s original mission, but over a short time innovators adopt and commercialize the innovation — often by rethinking business processes that leverage the technology’s attributes. I think the next invasion of CRM will be blockchain technology.

Is This the Beginning of the End for the Set-Top Box?


C Spire started out as a privately owned wireless competitor in Mississippi. Since then, it has expanded in several directions. Its focus last year was on installing high-speed Internet in a few Mississippi cities. Now it is partnering with MobiTV to offer a new television service for the home. The service will not use the set-top boxes common with cable TV. Rather, it will use a variety of connected streaming services and devices, including Apple TV, Amazon’s Fire TV and Roku, as well as smartphones and tablets running iOS and Android.
