455417-ports

Reviews of the new Surface Pro are surprisingly weak — weaker than we’ve seen for Microsoft’s flagship tablet in the past. This minor point update takes a few steps forward, but it wasn’t what reviewers were collectively looking for.

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.

What Do the Academy Awards, AWS and AI Have in Common?


As the tug of war between humans and machines escalates, we’ve become witnesses on nearly a daily basis to events that suggest there won’t be an ultimate winner or loser in this existential battle for survival and supremacy. Just take two little human mistakes that recently received worldwide attention because of the power of today’s technology to magnify their impacts on a global scale. The first was the mistake made by a senior partner at PwC, who was assigned to hand an envelope to an actor tasked to announce the best picture of the year.

CPU-Wafer1

Thanks to some recent leaks, we’ve got a better picture of what Intel will serve up with its Kaby Lake refresh. It’s looking like a modest step forward for the Santa Clara company — and, of course, it’ll be the first chip from Intel to go head-to-head with AMD’s upcoming Zen.

Apple might actually give us a new MacBook Air

We’ve been hearing about an upgraded MacBook Pro forever, but with a thinner and more powerful Pro, and the Retina MacBook on the other side, the MacBook Air looks like it’s getting squeezed out.

Heating Up the Platform Wars


We’ve seen a rapid progression from conventional software bought through a license to cloud-based solutions that sell for a song — and in theory could sell through barter at some point. I am not a big fan of zero marginal cost economics, in which prices drop to zip because buyers take into account only the cost of the marginal good and not the time, effort, and other resources that went into making it No. 1. That said, the story of economics is ever-declining prices and costs, as product innovations take on ever-larger markets.

Man from medieval times knocks a drone out of the sky with a spear

We’ve seen eagles and chimpanzees take down drones, but a spear-wielding man from medieval times? Now that we WEREN’T expecting. OK, he was dressed in period costume for a reenactment festival in Russia, but we’re sure you’ll agree, it’s some throw.
