The Technological Evolution of US Healthcare


The disease management industry, which focuses on reducing or delaying the use of expensive treatments or costly procedures, has passed its prime as a unique approach to controlling escalating costs attributed to chronic conditions. It worked on the sickest of the sick, but as patient conditions progressed and engagement levels decreased, it gradually lost its effectiveness. The industry hit a growth ceiling when health clients no longer found that cost savings justified the high care management fees charged by DM companies.

Inside Apple UK: Lavish London stores welcome Apple Watch buyers, but so far only to look

London — one of the most expensive cities in the world — has prime exposure to Apple Watch, both in high-end boutiques and in two of Apple’s own most impressive retail flagship stores, among the 38 total stores in the United Kingdom. Actually buying the new device in those stores, however, remains frustratingly difficult, at least for now.

The 270TB storage pod: Does Seagate or WD make the ultimate 6TB hard drive?

Backblaze 135TB storage pod
Signaling that 6TB hard drives are no longer for the exclusive enjoyment of expensive enterprise-level setups, Backblaze has crammed 45 of the drives into a single enclosure to create what we believe to be the highest-density storage pod ever created — 270 terabytes of spinning platter joy in a 4U rack-mount chassis. Better yet, if you have about $15,000 to hand and a penchant for computer building, you could even build your own 270TB storage pod — Backblaze open-sources its hardware designs, so you can simply follow along.

Lytro unveils next-gen Illum light field camera, lets you refocus your photos for $1600

Lytro Illum light field camera, front and lens
Lytro, after admitting that its overly expensive, low-resolution light field camera was merely a “novelty,” has announced its new Illum camera. The Illum is much larger than its predecessor, packing a sensor that’s four times the size (40 “megarays”), and an appropriately larger lens in front of that sensor (though the same 8x optical zoom and f/2.0 aperture remain). The Illum also looks a lot like a real DSLR, rather than the rather odd pocket kaleidoscopesque appearance of the original Lytro Camera. The Lytro Illum will be available in July 2014 at a retail price of $1600.
