Time of the Season for Innovating?


Not all innovation is good. Let me illustrate with a few examples of how poor innovation can harm a company. Bad innovation can quickly cut down a brand that took years to build. Generally speaking, innovation is good. Without innovation, we would still be driving a Model T and getting blocks of ice delivered to keep our refrigerator cool while sitting in our uncooled home listening to our radio. Without innovation, we wouldn’t have wireless access to the Web.

Here are three to think about.

Best gear of the year 2014

Innovation, I’m sorry to say, was not a hallmark of the technology world in 2014. There were plenty of updated gadgets and gimcracks — from thinner tablets to networked, singing light bulbs — but few standout products. Nevertheless, over the course of testing hundreds of high-tech items, from cars to TVs, I found a few devices with the kind of utility and ingenuity that make them worthy of a best of the year designation.
