Frank Eliason from Amazon – Proud to be an Amazonian Working in the Fulfillment Center

One of the most interesting things I’ve read this year came from customer service and customer experience pioneer Frank Eliason.  If you’ve heard that name before you probably know it for being one of the first customer service leaders to integrate social media in with traditional support processes during his time at Comcast.  For example, Frank proved the driving force behind @ComcastCares.  He led the same initiatives during his time at Citibank.  He continued as an industry thought leader inf...

An impressive deepfake video of Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk in 'Star Trek' shows how far the technology has come

A new deepfake video puts Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and Tesla CEO Elon Musk into an episode of "Star Trek."

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Observer: If you like to cook but not to shop or plan your own meals, and if you weren't too hungry, and if you didn't like cooking for too many friends, then Blue Apron -- the startup delivering precisely measured, prepackaged amounts of just enough salmon, green beans, butter and lemon for one meal, no leftovers -- was for you.

Amazon's first-ever employee says the company is big enough where it could make sense to break it up

Amazon's first-ever employee, Shel Kaphan, is speaking out for the first time — and he's got major criticisms of the company he helped shepherd into existence. Among his criticisms, Kaphan suggested Amazon is "now at the scale" where federal regulators breaking up the company "could potentially make sense." "On one hand I'm proud of what it became," Kaphan said in the new Frontline documentary, "Amazon Empire: The Rise and Reign of Jeff Bezos." "It also scares me," he said. "I just feel like i...

Microsoft chief information security officer explains why he's trying to eliminate passwords entirely in his quest to secure the company's information (MSFT)

As Microsoft's chief information security officer, Bret Arsenault is tasked with protecting the company against hacks, leaks, and breaches. Arsenault has spearheaded Microsoft's initiative to "build a world without passwords." Arsenault says that while stolen passwords can easily be exploited by hackers, it's much harder for your average hacker to fake something like an iris scan or fingerprint — with the added benefit that it takes the burden of dealing with passwords away from the user.  He ...
