Can Amazon Reinvent the Shopping Experience?


There is little doubt that the Internet has altered the way U.S. consumers think about shopping. E-commerce sales grew 15.6 percent in 2016 and now account for 11.7 percent of all retail sales. Amazon accounts for a whopping 43 percent of those e-commerce sales. Amazon, in particular, has changed the way consumers think about e-commerce sales, or etail.

What's Next in the Volatile Pay-TV Services Market?


There has been an erosion in penetration of pay-TV subscriptions in the United States. They have fallen from a high of 86 percent in 2014 to 83 percent in early 2017, based on Parks Associates recent consumer research. Despite signs in late 2015 and early 2016 that the U.S. cable TV industry finally had reversed years of subscriber losses, the numbers declined again for most cable operators late that same year.

Tech Q&A: Checking in on hackers, meshing your networks

We often talk about cybersecurity and how many threats are looming out there on the web, but isn’t it possible that we’ve already been compromised? How could we know? Hackers might wait for weeks or even years to use that information against us. It’s unlikely they’re going to get in touch and tell us how much personal data they’ve stolen. Luckily, there’s a website that gives you a pretty good idea of which accounts may have been hacked. You may be surprised.
