Here's what happens when 20,000 hackers invade Las Vegas for a week of hacking, booze, and debauchery | Inspiratie | Scoop.it

The (unconfirmed) rumor going around was the government hit the speaker, Sebastian Westerhold, with a cease-and-desist.

 

Neither Def Con or Westerhold responded to an email for comment.

What could Facebook’s personal assistant ‘M’ mean for marketers?

What could Facebook’s personal assistant ‘M’ mean for marketers? | Inspiratie | Scoop.it

The feature is aimed at making customers’ lives easier, with “M” being able to complete tasks like buy items, deliver gifts and book travel tickets.


Perhaps the most unique aspect is that “M” isn’t supported by artificial intelligence. Facebook is employing real people to help answer people’s requests, with plans to teach the technology how to handle them automatically in future.


While the feature is still in early beta-testing, “M” could represent a huge opportunity for brands who are willing to take a punt.

Why Tim Cook is Steve Ballmer and Why He Still Has His Job at Apple

Why Tim Cook is Steve Ballmer and Why He Still Has His Job at Apple | Inspiratie | Scoop.it

Lessons Learned

 

1. Innovation CEOs are almost always replaced by one of their execution VPs


2. If they have inherited a powerful business model this often results in gains in revenue and profits that can continue for years


3. However, as soon the market, business model, technology shifts, these execution CEOs are ill-equipped to deal with the change - the result is a company obsoleted by more agile innovators and left to live off momentum in its twilight years

Will Periscope Kill Meerkat?

Will Periscope Kill Meerkat? | Inspiratie | Scoop.it

There is one major distinction that gives Periscope the upper hand over Meerkat: on-demand video. Meerkat videos can only be watched while they are being recorded, while Periscope videos can be saved and played back by viewers. However, these replays are only accessible for 24 hours, like the content on Snapchat’s Discover platform. Periscope also lets creators privately broadcast to specific people and take their video down after the live-stream is over, if they choose.
