Are Some Technologies Moving too Fast for Society to Keep Pace?

Change | Data | Digital Evolution

One simple example could be the disposability of consumer applications of rapidly developing technologies whereby products that need specific batteries simply fade out of circulation as manufacturers cease to produce certain items when demand slumps. While this makes eminent sense to the manufacturers’ shareholders it can be infuriating for consumers who may have invested heavily […]

Cynical Tech. Companies and the Trend Towards Open Kitchens

Business Management | Change | Data | Digital Evolution | Technology

So Spotify is quietly moving into syndicating podcasts. Well, not so quietly, in fact; Bloomberg reports that it’s spent $400m on podcast related acquisitions this year. The reasoning appears to be that the lock of the big labels on back catalogues is immense, and that’s where almost all the revenues come from. Spotify is a […]
