TAG HEUER JOINS THE SMARTWATCH MARKET

It’s not just the tech-head companies that are involved in the next step of smart tech-wear, as the upper end of the luxury brands are now diving headfirst into the competitive market, with the latest to announce their involvement being too-expensive-for-us-mere-humans-to-afford watch-makers Tag Heuer.

Due to be fully announced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this coming January, all that is known at the moment is that the smartwatch will run on an Intel processor, but there is no word yet on what operating system or software will be involved.

This is all after the higher-ups at Tag Heuer have openly talked about their dislike for the Apple Watch (“To be totally honest, it looks like it was designed by a student in their first trimester.”) and other competitors such as Samsung and Sony (“They look like cheap, plastic-designed watches. In the luxury category, we work on every detail for crafted value. When I see the smartwatch, it’s interesting, but in terms of design, it looks like a cheap wrist computer. There’s not one that makes a great connection.”)

Let’s see how Tag’s is received when it’s released properly next month.

For a minute I allowed techno-romance to gnaw at me, but only for a minute. Tomorrow's open missal from Blackberry reminds me more of a fake letter that appeared in Chinese newspaper, The Southern Metropolis Daily a couple of months ago, and then found it's way around China via the micro-blogging Weibo.

NASA Game Changing 3D Printing success really matters

Last night I tweeted a link to the Press Release from NASA regarding their success with  testing a rocket engine injector made through additive manufacturing, or as we say these days,  3D printing. What surprised me was the reaction I got via re-Tweets, messages and people just saying 'wow!'. I think what caught people's attention was the potential highlighted by the success in NASA's test, the potential for manufacturing and for business.

Social Media: quality always tops quantity

In recent years I have had the privilege to speak at a number of different events on Social Media. Typically the area of greatest interest has always been Facebook. The same question always pops up during the Q&A part - “I don’t have a budget for Facebook, how do I get to 100,000 fans?” To be fair, there is not one answer to this question for every industry but I will try to give you an answer that should set you on the right path.
