2014: Top 3 Technology Trends Emerging in the Automotive Industry

We took a look back at the Consumer Electronics Show a few weeks ago,here, and reported the top products of the 2014 show. The Automotive Industry, however, is a whole other monster and they have been slowly invading the CES for several years now. This year was no exception. In fact, they took it to a whole new level. This year the focus was geared towards self-driving tech and the connected car. There have been some pretty big Auto Industry announcements both from the CES2014 and also just buzzing around car shows, etc. that we’d like to share with you.

Top 5 UI/UX Annoyances That Make Me Nuts

I think it’s time to air a few grievances on the UI/UX front.  While I’m all about great usability and design, I’ve got to say –there has been more than one occasion when I’ve found myself wishing I could bash certain electronic devices against the wall.  The instances vary.  Sometimes I’m trying to figure out how to use a new app or I’m poking around a new website and have given up altogether.  Other times, I’m helping a toddler doodle on an app designed for a toddler and find myself questioning my own intelligence as a grown human being.  Whatever the case, I’ve got some complaints.  There are a few too many repeat offenders on my list.  I’ll share mine with you, maybe it will be cathartic enough to stop me from chucking all things with a power source out the second story window –no promises.

Facebook is Showing It's Age: Teens are Turning to Apps

It was revealed a few months ago that Facebook’s popularity among new teen users is on a decline. Where are they losing young teens users to? Messaging apps, video sharing apps, and photo sharing apps.   WeChat, WhatsApp, Snapchat, Vine, Flickr, Instagram, etc. are taking over this demographic. For the moment, Facebook is gaining a slower growing and older crowd. The strongest growth has come from those age 65 and older. Daily engagement with the site is down; apparently the fast flying thumbs of those sixteen year olds are being put to use elsewhere.

Why Google is Buying... Everything

Google is taking over the world! No? Well, sort of.  Google has been acquiring, on average, more than one company a week since 2010.  Incredible right?  In the past two months, the push has been for several big robotics companies, artificial intelligence companies, and home automation companies (Nest).  So what exactly are they doing?
