Changing the Book game
JANUARY 20, 2012
I was boarding a plane away from home as Apple’s announcement was happening, so I haven’t had the chance to dig into the details as I normally would, but just the news itself shows Apple is taking on yet another industry. What Apple did to the music industry is a closer analogy to what is happening here than what they did to the phone industry, however. As Apple recreated the business of music publishing, they’re similarly shifting textbook publishing. Apple, once again making life fun. That may change, however.

Even die-hard music fans might need a refresher on Frank Ocean. He then disappeared from public view, spending the next four years deep in work and only occasionally surfacing with hints about new music and teases for album release dates that quickly went unmet. It’s strange that a suburban Chicago newsstand would be ground zero for a major international music event.
Making Sense of Research
MARCH 17, 2015
The context was the ‘spring forward’ event Apple held where they announced their new products. The most anticipated one was the Apple Watch (which was part of the driving behind my post on wearables ), the new iConnected device for your wrist. What Apple has done is to focus specifically on health data from their HealthKit, and partner with research hospitals. And low and behold, a massive example was revealed last week. The announcement was ResearchKit , and it’s about sensor nets. So, smartphones have lots of sensors. And the watch will have more.

Hours of Glower: The Increasing Obsolescence of the Metric of Training Hours
JUNE 8, 2016
Back in ancient times when music came on CD (remember that, kids?), the trend was to stuff as much music as possible onto a single, 74-minute disc. As the forward march of technology expanded the quantity of how music could be stored on playable media (vinyl LPs could handle about 45 minutes), people adapted with it and used this flexibility, for better or worse. There’s no way to truly compare the two when technology changes the yardstick, and “longer” has never been remotely synonymous with “better” in this regard. And as a result, could have higher indirect costs?)

My forecasts for 2017
OCTOBER 6, 2016
Okay unless you have been listening only to Englebert Humperdink music (and, I can’t believe this guy was ever popular. Tim Cook, CEO of Apple is investing more into AR than VR and believes that AR is the future and not VR. Apple has acquired a couple of AR firms already. Apple is not a vendor to ignore, nor is what e-learning providers can create for the masses, regardless of what device you use. And the crowds roared. And the people sang from the hilltops.
