Steve Jobs the Greatest CEO – the Greatest Marketer… OR … the Genius?

Nobody else in the history of business has achieved what Steve Jobs has achieved as a CEO. He has taken Apple from its death bed (in 1997 it was dying) and made it the most valuable company on earth. Interesting story: What Happened After Apple Fired Steve Jobs and How we were able to turn it around Robert X. Cringely says “Lots of CEOs make products. Many make millions. Very few make history.” So, does that make him the greatest CEO? Maybe … maybe not – but will posterity remember him as a CEO? Nobody else in history could launch a product the way Steve Jobs could do. Each of his product launches has become folklore. Remember when he pulled out the MacBook Air from an envelope? There is no doubt that he has redefined innovation. Nobody else in the history has designed five groundbreaking products. Good summary of what he has achieved: Master Inventor, Master Marke...

Why Java Is More Relevant Than Ever in the Mobile Age

I was programming in C++ for a living when I fell in love with Java. It was an unintended affair. At the time, I was following a trend with the limited language of C++, which didn't even have operator overloading or templates, but boasted simplicity and the ability to write the code once and run it anywhere (otherwise known as WORA). But Java came along and changed everything. In fact, despite what most people say about Java in the mobile age, I still find it relevant, useful and an important coding tool going forward. Java's WORA was much maligned during its early years, but people tend to forget how difficult things were before Java came along. Java was designed as a language of minimalism: There are less ways to accomplish a certain task, but that also makes it easy to go back in and make changes or corrections. With free and open tools, it made tackling the issu... (more)

The Compelling Driver for the 'Internet of Things'

The Compelling Driver for IoT Is in Services, Not The Devices By Marie Martin I came across a very interesting story posted at the Reviewed.com. Website in the section covering home oven reviews. The headline read “The Smart Home Dominates the Internet of Things.” The story, based on a recent report published by Appinions, a market research firm, stated that while home automation “is used interchangeably” with the Internet of Things, the fact is that the IoT is far bigger than that. “It promises to unify a vast array of industrial and commercial devices and activities, not just your phone and dishwasher.” To be sure, home automation is leading the way right now, what with Apple, Google, Microsoft and other companies jumping on the bandwagon. What is missing in the piece is the real challenge (and opportunity) of the IoT: monetization. The next set of leaders to em... (more)
