    Las Vegas On Your Own Terms: A CES Recap

    What ended up being my favorite episode of CES 2016 was watching someone experience Las Vegas on their own terms. An avid gamer named @hardlyeverwrong was posting some frustration online about his hotel — the Luxor — that was preventing him from using his own PS4 in his hotel room. Below is his guide to bypassing the hotel television to use your own PS4 the next time you are in town Read More

    A Guiding Light Into The Future Of Marketing

    The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is a feast to the eyes, but an overload of the senses. Separating the profound from the gimmicks and the trends from the distractions is vital, but hard.

  • The GoProblem

    The GoProblem

    Action cameras are like tablets. Lots of people want ONE. But very few need to constantly update to the latest model. I suspect this is why GoPro’s sales are slowing, it’s reduced sales forecasts, and it had to lay off 7% of its employees this week. It’s hitting market saturation. Many of the people likely to buy a GoPro already have one and don’t need… Read More

    Do Americans Care About Privacy? It Depends, Because Privacy Is Personal…

    There have been plenty of premature obituaries for privacy falling from the lips of tech company CEOs in recent years.
