Why E-Mail Sucks and How to Make it Smarter

October 28, 2014


Many of us live in email. I get hundreds per day and I need almost every message. I am also a source of tremendous messaging pain here at TMC because part of what I think makes an effective team, is being in sync. To ensure the right people are in the know, I forward a tremendous amount of messages to various groups.

Amazon Fire Phone Should be a Laptop

October 24, 2014

I’ve written a lot of headlines in my life but this one is among the oddest. Why on earth does a phone need to be a laptop? I know what you’re thinking... Rich Tehrani flew to Colorado to do a story on legalized marijuana which includes sampling.

Apple's Positioning Should Scare Intel and Others

October 9, 2014


Will the combination of the ARM processor coupled with 14 nm FinFET process thanks to Samsung change the dynamics of the mobile processor market? That is certainly the logic being put forward by Mark Hibben at Seeking Alpha.

As he explains:

The term FinFET stands for Fin Field Effect Transistor because one of its structural features is a vertical silicon fin.

Apple iPhone 6 Plus: Top 20 Must Know Thoughts

October 6, 2014

After spending a good deal of time with the iPhone 6 Plus, I feel confident enough to point out its pros and cons. Hopefully you’ll find this list useful when making a decision regarding a smartphone purchase.

  1. Perhaps the best feature of the phone is the superior antenna, thanks in part to the larger size of the phone and technological improvements by Apple like support for 802.11ac. If you used a 5s or smaller device you have likely experienced the challenge of seeing a WiFi signal but not being able to connect with it in a meaningful way. In other words, the phone is receiving a signal from an access point but doesn't have a strong enough signal to establish a connection of any value.

Google Glass Hackathon Comes to New York

September 2, 2014



At TMC’s Wearable Tech Expo event this past summer in NYC I had a chance to meet Katy Kasmai who heads up UbiTech, the company behind the Google Glass Hackathon in New York. This next event takes place September 6-7, 2014 – basically next week and has a bunch of prizes associated with it such as $1,000 from Augmate for an enterprise supply chain application.

The price is $25 per person and the event is at WeWork Park South.

I had a chance to interview Katy at the Wearable Tech Expo conference where she explained how she got involved with this market and went on to talk about some important points regarding Glass and associated applications.

Just as the iPhone helped turn phones into application-centric devices, Google Glass looks like it will be the product that makes many of us want to wear smart glasses.

Defending Against an Autocomplete Smear Campaign

August 25, 2014

What would you do if you started to Google your name and Google was to suggest you complete the query with the word scammer, fraud or crook?

While Google contends with lawsuits around the globe relating to autocomplete suggestions which are deemed libelous, one has to wonder if it isn’t possible to easily set up a campaign to smear anyone or any company. Google argues that features like autocomplete can’t be libelous because they utilize an algorithm which uses information from Google+ and user searches.

The obvious question which hasn’t been addressed however is if one can get away with fraud in the advertising business, why not in the autocomplete business?

Zocalo: Amazon Just Fired a Gun at Microsoft, Oracle and Dropbox

Amazon has made its name in ecommerce and cloud but its next frontier may be productivity applications and in the process, they may disrupt the entire enterprise software and cloud market. Zocalo is a new service from the company which allows the sharing of numerous document types with full version reviewed support and the ability to store files in specific geographical locations for compliance reasons. It works across devices (pretty much all of them), continents (files can be stored in the US and Europe (Ireleand) as of today) and can communicate with Active Directory if required. File transfers are encrypted and documents can be shared internally and externally.
