    B2B publishers are facing Armageddon – again

    By Girish Mhatre | August 31, 2015

    now the end begins

    Apple’s support of ad blocking software is bad news for all publishers who rely on advertising revenue, but for long suffering B2B publishers it could deliver a coup de grâce

    IOS 9, the new version of its mobile operating system, expected to be launched next month, will allow developers to create extensions for the Safari browser that block cookies, images, pop-ups and, what Apple coyly terms, “other content.” Such ad blocking software will be downloadable from the App Store.

      The drone makers: Five visionaries who will rule the skies

      August 30, 2015

      The commercial drone business is in a holding pattern as the FAA decides who can fly drones, where.  By February, 2016 the agency’s ‘proposed a framework of regulations’ will result in new rules governing routine use of certain small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) in U.S. airspace. The proposals are expected to generate “significant economic benefit” to put it mildly.

        Five mind-boggling 3D printing designs you won’t believe

        Five mind-boggling 3D printing designs you won't believe

        3D printing is not just changing how we make things, it’s changing the way we think about the very process of creation itself. 3D’s disruptive potential is mind-boggling, and so too are future-facing designs coming off the printing press.

        Case in point, these five remarkable, 3D works-in-progress: all at the cutting edge of technology, all a quantum leap ahead of traditional design thinking in civil engineering; architecture; home, office, and furniture design; aerospace; construction; and tool making.

          Big tech versus the little guy

          By Girish Mhatre | August 11, 2015

          Government regulators, both here and abroad, are vigorously battling tech giants on a number of fronts; the issues range from fair compensation of employees, to the right to privacy and ensuring public safety.

          These actions are noteworthy because they stand out against the backdrop of rampant technology boosterism. When tech is hailed as the panacea to all problems, when terms like “creative destruction,” are bandied about, when “disruption” is the ultimate business ideal, dangerous thinking can take hold: The tyranny of the marketplace becomes received wisdom and entrepreneurial ruthlessness a desirable trait.

            Germany’s  “Ko-HAF” (Cooperative Highly Automated Driving,” or in the original German “Kooperatives Hochautomatisiertes Fahren”) is a research initiative aiming to develop new systems and functions to permit autonomous driving at higher speeds and in more complex situations than has previously been possible. A consortium of 16 automobile manufacturers, automotive suppliers and public partners (including Audi, BMW, Bosch, Continental, Mercedes-Benz, Opel, Visteon and several technical universities) are working on the project.

              From culture to commerce: makers transition to suppliers

              By Richard Wallace | August 7, 2015

              maker movement

              The DIY maker movement, a culture of tinkers, hackers, and creators, is generating its own commercial, ‘maker-to-maker’ channel, provisioning unique components, kits, and high-tech building blocks to other makers.

              Examples of emerging maker suppliers include market newcomers like Modulo, Zymbit, Flutter Wireless, uARM, Tapster; companies usually founded by DIYs or makers with extensive technical and business experience in the sector.

                  Millennials lead WEF Technology Pioneers 2015

                  By Nitin Dahad | August 5, 2015

                  US millennial entrepreneurs lead WEF Technology Pioneers 2015The latest report from the World Economic Forum says the USA still leads the list of its annual Technology Pioneers list, due largely to its entrepreneurs with millennial mindsets, availability of large domestic markets, and access to venture capital funding. Its list of tech pioneers consists of 49 companies from 10 countries.

                  Its main conclusion is that entrepreneurs are using their ‘millennial mindset’ and the record amount of venture capital available to address challenges in fields such as medtech, fintech, digital security and energy.
