Michael MacNeil's curator insight, September 13, 2013 9:17 AM

Fascinating and useful developments, but this is worth looking at for the Dynavox Eyemax alone.  The ability to successfully communicate must lift a great burden off those unable to articulate or gesture their needs.

robyns tut's curator insight, September 14, 2013 10:54 AM

This shows hoe growing technology increases to help people with and without disabilities. Compared to Rhodes that has limited access and help for the dissabled, these inventions offer great support overcoming these obstacles. A story can be done on why these objects are not made readily available to more disabled people.

Nadella Gets 'A' For First 100 Days, Success To Be Revealed In Next 90 Days

Nadella Gets 'A' For First 100 Days, Success To Be Revealed In Next 90 Days | Microsoft Business Intelligence | Scoop.it
Will Nadella's strategy be a relief to Microsoft employees who've been waiting for a clarity from leadership, or will it be stalled by those who disagree with the new direction? Will the masses of employees jump on board to help accelerate Microsoft forward towards it new, “mobile first cloud first”, vision, or will the historic fiefdoms dampen urgency and lead to complacency? Will the desire for quarterly profits from Wall Street slow Nadella down as he invests in Microsoft’s new future, or will he be given the leeway to see his vision through to the end? Nadella is off to a good start, but I’ll be watching carefully to see what happens in the next 90 days.
