Will Amazon Go Reinvent Retail?

Every time I walk into a retail store, I complain. I grumble to my wife about the same pet peeve every time we go shopping. After walking the aisles and filling the basket, you then must go through the most inefficient checkout process. First you unload everything, then it’s rung up, then you put the items in bags that go back into your basket before you can walk out of the store. There must be a better way. Amazon Go suggests there is. Shouldn’t it be easy, with today’s technology, to cut through the mess and reinvent this process?

'Care traffic control' could be the future of medicine

Imagine it’s a beautiful spring day. Winter has finally passed, and you’re out for a long walk. You decide to try that new Italian place up the street. As you look over the menu, you receive a text message from your doctor. This can’t be good. She congratulates you on the healthy exercise, but warns you about adding too many carbs to your meal. She notes that your blood pressure is not looking good over the last week and suggests a slight uptick in medication.

Self-Driving Car Security: No Room for Error

Walk into any electronics store and you will find antivirus software from companies like Norton, ESET, McAfee and Kaspersky. In the last few years, the risk has spread from our computers to our smartphones and our tablets. The next thing we will have to protect may be our cars — and our lives could depend on it. We used to think the computer was the only device that needed virus protection since it was connected to the Internet. We surfed the Web, exchanged email, and shared attachments with family, friends — and unfortunately, foes as well.

The Apollo 11 moon landing, 45 years on: Looking back at mankind’s giant leap

Bull Aldrin and the US flag, on the Moon
On July 20, 1969 — 45 years and one day ago — Neil Armstrong became the first human to walk on the Moon. Buzz Aldrin would soon follow suit and climb down the ladder of the Apollo 11 Lunar Module (the Eagle), and the pair would then spend two and a half hours being the first ever humans to explore the surface of another world. Let’s take a retrospective look at some of the awesome photos from Apollo 11, and explore some of the fun (and perhaps lesser-known) factoids from the mission.

Are We There Yet? The Long Road to the CRM Revolution

They say you must walk before you can run. It follows that you should crawl before you walk. In CRM, however, there are a lot of businesses that talk at great length about wanting to run even though they haven’t mastered crawling yet. They battle with the same old problems: adoption issues; technology decisions made before business needs are identified; lack of executive buy-in. If you want to extend the metaphor, CRM-wise, they’re not running, walking or crawling — they’re lying face-down, motionless, on the floor.
