Robots Edge Closer to Unloading Trucks in Amazon-Era Milestone

Siemens AG and Honeywell International Inc. have built machines that pull packages from the back of a tractor-trailer and place them on conveyor belts, whizzing the parcels off for sorting. “The biggest challenge in our world is: Every single package is different in size, shape, weight, color, material,” said Ted Dengel, managing director of operations technology at FedEx’s ground-delivery unit. Automated unloaders took years to develop and still haven’t been perfected, reflecting the difficul...

A week with the Samsung Galaxy Fold

I know, I know. I will say this about the Galaxy Fold, however: it’s been a hell of a conversation piece. I’ve had a LOT of dialogues with strangers since I started using it as my day-to-day. And let’s be honest, that’s a big part of being an early adopter. The Galaxy Fold is also the most polarizing device I can recall have used. Everyone who sees the thing wants to play with it, but reaction has been very mixed. I was at a Fedex store the other day and ended up handing it off to two of the fou...

The Bessemer Process patented in 1856 by Sir Henry Bessemer is one of the inventions most closely associated with catalyzing the second industrial revolution. By reducing the impurities of iron with an innovative oxidizing air blast, the process ushered in a new wave of inexpensive, high-volume steelmaking. Bessemer decided to license his patent to a handful of steelmakers in an effort to quickly monetize his efforts. But contrary to expectations, technical challenges and monopolistic greed prev...

We use the term “brand” with such frequency, such alacrity, and such assurance, you’d almost think we know what it means. So what does brand mean? Fact is, we use “brand” to mean many things. Many different things. So I thought I’d start a glossary of the different meanings of the term brand. Please feel free to add to the list in the comments section below. 1. A brand is a name that a seller uses to label a product in order to communicate with consumers. As in: let’s call this fizzy caramel-...

Amazon took over the $176 billion market for cloud computing. Now it's using the same playbook in logistics.

A slew of industry experts say Amazon is prepping itself to take on FedEx and UPS.  Amazon says its network is only used to move goods in-house to manage its quickly-rising shipping costs. However, its network of ocean freight containers, trailers, fulfillment centers, cargo planes, and more is so large that not even Amazon could fill it, analysts say.  Amazon's moves in logistics lines up with how it launched Amazon Web Services, the company's cloud computing solution, which is now the leader...
