Meet VOIXATCH, a smartwatch for an alternate world where watches and earphones are one product

It might sound a little dumb now that I’m saying it in 2020 but we may have been duped. Companies have, for too long, made us buy unnecessary products that just about do the same thing but in slightly different ways. Think about it. Your phone, watch, and earbuds all give you notifications (albeit in different ways). They also all let you access your voice assistant, and pretty much most of your data like your calendar, phone book, or other services. Why then, do we need separate devices that ...

How a video game wunderkind promised a robot revolution that mesmerized SoftBank but went off the rails: The inside story of Zume Pizza

Zume Pizza, the pizza-making robotics startup, spent its early days pitching investors and the public on an AI-powered robotic revolution at the hands of its robot fleet.

Woz Remembers Steve Jobs' Ambition to Change Humanity

The Bay Area Newsgroup reports on Steve Wozniak's new interview with longtime Apple evangelist Guy Kawasaki on Kawasaki's Remarkable People podcast. Woz reveals he's still on the Apple payroll -- he never left it -- and he's still receiving about $50 a week "out of loyalty. Because what could I do that's more important in my life?" Woz also remembered how the ways he'd differed from Steve Jobs made them a complementary pair: "I had a lot of values about disdaining money. I had the computer sk...

Reframing Brand Problems For A Bigger Future

When Steve Jobs met Robert Friedland in 1972, Robert was the spiritual seeking proprietor of an apple farm commune. He introduced Steve Jobs to a principle called the ‘reality distortion field’. In his 2011 biography Steve Jobs told his biographer, Walter Isaacson, ‘Friedland…turned me on to a different level of consciousness’. The ‘reality distortion field’ is an extreme version of what the psychologist Daniel Kahneman calls a ‘pervasive optimistic bias’ in his book: ‘Most of us view the wor...

Customer Insight-Driven Market Intelligence Means You Should Never Have to Market a Bad Product Again

It's no secret that most new products are unsuccessful. Even the biggest companies on earth struggle with product launches and experience flubs that cost them millions. According to , approximately 80 to 85 percent of all fast-moving-consumer-good (FMCG) launches fail in the marketplace. By other estimates, 95 percent of the more than 30,000 products launched each year fail. Many issues contribute to this discouraging failure rate, including high price points, bad product-launch timing, des...

4 Ads. 1 Super Bowl. How Goodby Silverstein & Partners Juggled It All

"Let's blame Lee Clow and Steve Jobs because they changed the Super Bowl forever."

(Infinity and Beyond  is a regular bi-weekly column documenting the 25-year filmography of Pixar Animation Studios, film by film. In today’s column, writer Josh Spiegel highlights Toy Story 2 .)

Your Manager Checklist for Dealing with Low Performers

As a manager, you’re faced with a challenging task. It feels like climbing Mountain Everest, blindfolded. Meet Jeff—he’s the CEO of B players Inc. He hasn’t done anything illegal, but Jeff is neither reaching his goals nor plain getting the job done. And let’s be honest—he’s a time suck for you as a manager and a profit-killer for your organization. Problem? Letting someone go is everything but easy. You’ll need to go through a performance intervention and have “the talk” with Jeff that might le...

The Big Picture Presentation

I was recently working on some items in an Adobe Spark portfolio, when a quote on their homepage reminded me of the importance of having a big picture mindset. It said: “Sell a good night’s sleep; not a mattress. How can you connect your product or service to a universal emotion?” I thought, what a great way to think about presentations. What if we let our driving force be a universal emotion or goal rather than a product or policy? But how do we stop selling mattresses and start selling a good ...

The iPad Awkwardly Turns 10

John Gruber: Ten years ago today, Steve Jobs introduced the iPad on stage at the Yerba Buena theater in San Francisco. [...] Ten years later, though, I don't think the iPad has come close to living up to its potential. [...] Software is where the iPad has gotten lost. iPadOS's "multitasking" model is far more capable than the iPhone's, yes, but somehow Apple has painted it into a corner in which it is far less consistent and coherent than the Mac's, while also being far less capable. iPad multit...

10 Years of iPad

Source: Statista January 27 marks 10 years since Apple announced the debut of the iPad. At first, people thought it was nothing more than a clunky, glorified iPhone. But Steve Jobs knew the type of success the iPad could have. The key was in the apps, and how they could be used on an iPad versus an iPhone. But the iPad isn’t as popular as it once was. The company has seen a decline in the sales of the iPad in 2015. It was at its peak in 2013, where the iPad accounted for 26 percent of Appl...
