How Wearable Tech Made Corning's Day Made of Glass Obsolete

December 24, 2013


If you want to marvel at the future of wearable technology as well as augmented reality, take a look at this video from Atheer Labs which shows just how fast things can evolve before our eyes. Just a few years back Corning wowed many with their Day Made of Glass video series which envisioned a world where every surface was intelligent thanks to their smart-glass solutions. Now however we see that augmented reality in many ways alleviates the need to add glass to every surface we come in contact with.

Almost overnight the concept of wearable technology has wiped out potentially tens of billions of dollars of extra spending to touch-and-display-enable our world… Wow. Talk about a disruptive technology – smart glass getting disrupted by smart glasses.

Tech Pioneer Philippe Khan Speaks at Wearable Tech Expo Next Week

December 5, 2013

Philippe Khan is one of the tech entrepreneurs and visionaries who really defines the term successful serial entrepreneur and inventor. In the 1980s he was CEO of Borland, the company which made a number of programming tools and eventually purchased Paradox, the most-popular full-featured PC database program. TMC, the company where I am CEO ran on both Turbo C and Paradox in the eighties and I was the person in charge of the programming and running IT at the time. I first used Turbo C in college on a 286 clone that I believe ran at 10 or 12 MHz. Thankfully Turbo C was a fast compiler.

Dell Tablet Ad Takes on Apple and Android

December 3, 2013


Microsoft is having a tough time this holiday season - lets face it, Wal-Mart alone sold 1.4 million tablets on Thanksgiving. This is exactly why the company and its hardware retail partners and Intel desperately need a piece of the tablet pie.

The result? The companies finally put out an ad - really its a Dell ad for the Venue 8 Pro which is worth watching. It features a traveler on an airplane who has no space and is still able to work with his office apps and more.

I am left wondering though - since Microsoft is now the proud owner of Skype - a consumer technology which could entice potential buyers, why not mention it in the ad somewhere?
