    IoT’s killer app is home security

    IoT is most well-known as a quirky way of automating your home, like some fancy clapper or talking fridge. By and large, IoT has yet to have its “killer app” moment and become a mainstream success — mostly because people don’t recognize the tangible value in having a home full of connected devices.

    You too can bid on Steve Jobs’ turtleneck and other random junk!

    If you’re a founder who’s feeling hot after getting some new seed funding and want to treat yourself, may I recommend purchasing the entire wardrobe of Silicon Valley’s greatest Versace menswear aficionado and wearing it as you berate employees in your office?

    Salesforce shares face plant despite beating analyst expectations

    Salesforce earnings came out today! They’re not great, either, and it looks like a weak outlook for the company’s third quarter is doing some damage to its shares, which were down as much as 8 percent. For a company that literally defined the phrase “software as a service” — basically, running your business online — and one that’s had a decent year… Read More

    Lenovo’s got a snazzy new lightweight convertible laptop

    The poor Yoga 910 never really had a chance. Moments after Lenovo announced the laptop, the spotlight was completely absorbed by the strange new Yoga Book. It’s a shame really, because this is a pretty nice piece of hardware — one that surely would have been the talk of the company’s event, had it not gone and showed the aforementioned device and a Hasselblad add-on for the… Read More

    Bang & Olufsen’s pricey new wireless speakers look like martini shakers

    If nothing else, Bang & Olufsen knows how to make an impression. The Danish audio company announced a pair of new wireless speakers — or rather, one speaker in two different sizes — with conical aluminium designs that, if nothing else, certainly stand out. The BeoSound 1 and 2 (names, interestingly enough, already used for a pair of shiny multi-room speakers about 10 or so… Read More
