Design thinker Tristan Harris offers thoughtful new ideas for technology that creates more meaningful interaction. He asks: "What does the future of technology look like when you're designing for the deepest human values?"

Dell abandons its remaining Android tablets, 6 months after HP | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
The weak sustainability of low-end market share has claimed a new victim. Dell has dropped its remaining Venue-branded Android tablet line and will instead focus on selling conventional PCs and hybrid "2-in-1" devices running Windows, citing over-saturation and declining demand for slate-style tablets.

[CES 2016] Keynote by Dr.WP Hong

Dr. Hong, the President of Samsung SDS and the Head of its solution business, described Samsung’s devices and components, platforms and security solution
Ken Morrison's insight:
Samsung's Keynotes are getting less cheesy and their products are improving, but their announcements still feel awkward. I really like some of the things that they are doing, but I can't picture it happening without another layer of advertising around every corner of the new horizon. For example, it is becoming trite to use the example of being at the store and having your refrigerator tell you what you need to buy.  It sounds nice, but the inevitable relentless advertising that will accompany this 'service' will turn me off quickly.

You will never find me arguing against pushes forward in the area of personalizing feedback regarding health. I am glad that they are proceeding in this area!
