Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, April 19, 2015 6:28 AM

Machines aren’t used because they perform some tasks that much better than humans, but because, in many cases, they do a “good enough” job while also being cheaper, more predictable and easier to control than quirky, pesky humans. Technology in the workplace is as much about power and control as it is about productivity and efficiency.

Google's 3D-Scanning Project Tango Just Got a Little More Real

Google's 3D-Scanning Project Tango Just Got a Little More Real | Software and PC Tools | Scoop.it
Google ATAP (that's Advanced Technology and Projects) is where wonderful things are born. Things like the animated magic of Glen Keane's Duet or the modular Project Ara smartphone. It's all great stuff, but it's also all experimental—if a project doesn't make enough progress in two years, it's dead. But Google's Project Tango is alive and well: it just graduated from ATAP.

Richard Platt's curator insight, February 2, 2015 4:04 AM

Project Tango started as an experimental smartphone concept that used a powerful chipset and some advanced cameras to capture over a quarter million 3D measurements every second. Basically, it was a 3D scanner that lived in your pocket, and developers have been using it to create immersive augmented reality headsets, help customers find stuff on crowded store shelves and even turn create an alternate, snowed-in reality in a few Target stores. It's like that crazy Intel RealSense camera in that new Dell tablet,

The Anatomy of a Perfect Sales Presentation

The Anatomy of a Perfect Sales Presentation | Software and PC Tools | Scoop.it

Businesses and individuals are pitched all-year-long by folks who just have one goal: close the sale, no matter what. To do that, they walk in, ask stupid questions, while trying to sell themselves. They make a sales presentation and extensively use the world “we” to talk about their company, products and so on. It’s often about them, and rarely about us. What happens next is predictable: we – the clients – politely say “we’ll be in touch”, run away, and never come back.

5% of the Challenge Is the Strategy. 95% Is the Execution

5% of the Challenge Is the Strategy. 95% Is the Execution | Software and PC Tools | Scoop.it
Imagine it’s your first day on the job as chief operating officer of a global manufacturing company in a foreign country. You don’t speak the language, you don’t know where the company’s plants are located, and you don’t even know how to make a phone call. That’s what it was like for Carlos Ghosn when he took over at Japan’s then-floundering Nissan Motor Corp. in 1999. The cultural challenges would have been difficult enough, but Nissan was then some $20 billion in debt after 27 years of declining market share.
