Hulu Owners Call Off Sale, Instead Pledging to Invest to Take On Rivals | NYTimes.com

Hulu Owners Call Off Sale, Instead Pledging to Invest to Take On Rivals | NYTimes.com | Future Technology Trends | Scoop.it

The owners of Hulu, having plotted a breakup twice now, have decided again to stay together — and as in many relationships of this sort, they are putting on a happy face and promising to work harder this time.

 

The three companies that mutually own Hulu — 21st Century Fox, the Walt Disney Company and NBCUniversal — said Friday that instead of selling the pioneering streaming video Web site, they would make a new investment of $750 million and use Hulu’s technology to compete against other online distributors like Netflix. The announcement represented an anticlimactic end to months of sale speculation and disappointed bidders like DirecTV, that were prepared to pay about $1 billion for the site.

 

The Web site’s owners concluded, according to a person with close ties to the negotiation process, that the “equity value in the long run outstrips the sale value.”

 

“The future of Hulu is bright, and if the future of Hulu is bright, then we should hold onto it,” Robert A. Iger, the chief executive of Disney, told reporters at the Allen & Company media and technology conference in Sun Valley, Idaho. Mr. Iger said that the decision had nothing to do with the bids for the video service, calling them “good, solid offers.”

NASA 3D-prints and fires rocket engine component | GizMag.com

NASA 3D-prints and fires rocket engine component | GizMag.com | Future Technology Trends | Scoop.it

Star Trek's Mr. Scott will have fewer reasons to panic as the day comes closer when even rocket engines can be cranked out on 3D printers. In recent tests, NASA and Aerojet Rocketdyne fired a rocket engine injector at NASA's Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio that was made using a 3D printer. The project, done in collaboration between NASA and private industry, aims at speeding up the manufacture of rocket components while reducing costs as well as eventually printing them in space.

 

The 3D printing process that was used is known as a laser additive process. Unlike other 3D printing techniques that deposit layers of plastic or other materials to build an object, this process uses high-powered lasers focused on a bed of metallic powder. The laser melts a fine line of this powder into solid metal and then another powder layer is added. In the end, the excess powder is brushed off and the final product remains.

 

The purpose of the tests was to study the ability of the current state of technology to design, manufacture and test a critical rocket engine part using 3D printing. The tests did not involve the manufacture and firing of a complete liquid rocket engine, but instead just the rocket engine injector assembly – a key component that mixes propellants and determines the performance of the engine. There are several types of rocket injectors, but NASA did not specify which was used in the tests.

Phaedra Pardue's insight:

When you imagine all the ways we can use 3D Printing to reduce space payloads and to also allow us to potentially manufacture a rocket for a return trip from, say MARS for example, this sounds like a good proof-of-concept.

Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends For 2013 - Gartner

Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends For 2013 - Gartner | Future Technology Trends | Scoop.it

Top 10 list from Gartner, from the Gartner Symposium IT Expo 2012.

 

Mobile device battles: Mobile experiences eclipse the desktop experience. Consumerization drives tablets into the enterprise. Cloud and mobile are mutually reinforcing trends. Bring your own device trend accelerates. In 2013, mobile devices will pass PCs to be most common Web access tools. By 2015, over 80% of handsets in mature markets will be smart phones. 20% of those will be Windows phones. By 2015, tablet shipments will be 50% of laptop shipments, with Windows 8 in third place behind Apple and Android. Microsoft‘s share of overall client platform will fall to 60%, and could drop below 50%. In smartphones, Windows could pass RIM to be #3 player, and could be same size as Apple in units by 2015. Windows 8 will be “relatively niche,” with mostly appealing to enterprise buyers.

 
Mobile applications & HTML 5: Through 2014, JavaScript performance will push HTML5 and the browser as a mainstream application developer environment. There will be long shift to HTML5 from native apps as HTML5 becomes more capable. But native apps won’t disappear, and will always offer best experiences.

 

Personal Cloud: Cloud will be center of digital lives, for apps, content and preferences. Sync across devices. Services become more important; devices become less important.

 

Internet of Things: Internet of things is already here. Over 50% of Internet connections are things. In 2011, over 15 billion things on the Web, with 50 billion+ intermittent connections. By 2020, over 30 billion connected things, with over 200 billion with intermittent connections. Key technologies here include embedded sensors, image recognition and NFC. By 2015, in more than 70% of enterprises, a single exec will oversee all Internet connected things. Becomes the Internet of Everything.

 

Hybrid IT and Cloud Computing: Changes role of IT. IT departments must play more roles in coordinating IT related activities.

 

Strategic Big Data: Organizations need to focus on non-traditional data types and externa data sources. Hadoop and NoSQL gain momentum. Big data will meet social. Five richest big data sources on the Web include social graph, intent graph, consumption graph, interest graph and mobile graph. Concept of single corporate data warehouse is dead. Multiple systems need to be tied together.

 

Actionable Analytics: Cloud, packaged analytics and big data accelerates in 2013, 2014. Can now perform analytics and simulation on every action taken in business. Mobile devices will have access to the data, supporting business decision making.
Mainstream In-Memory Computing: Changes expectations, designs and architectures. Can boost performance and response times.

 

Enables real-time self service business intelligence. SAP and others will accelerate delivery of applications in 2012/2013 to leverage in memory capability.

 

Integrated Ecosystems: More packaging of software and services to address infrastructure or application workload. There will be more shipment of “appliances,” with software delivered as hardware. New trend: virtual appliances, which Gartner sees gaining in popularity over the next five years.

 

Enterprise App Stores: By 2014, there will be more than 70 billion mobile app downloads from app stores every year. Also by 2014, most organizations will deliver mobile apps to workers via private application stores.
