Cisco’s Country Digital Acceleration Program Is All About Trust

I am always skeptical of big technology companies when they pose programs that sound like “tech for good” and I do extra levels of research to get underneath the motive and gauge trust. Maybe it is my Midwest upbringing or maybe it’s having been an executive for over 20 years at tech companies that elicits …

CBS 60 Minutes Segment About Amazon Only Tells Part Of The Story

Today, I watched a 60 Minutes segment by Lesley Stahl on Amazon about the working conditions at its wide array of sites across the country.

Microsoft Updates Surface Line With Meaningful Additions

It is hard to believe the Surface line of PCs has been around for nearly eight years. When the first batch came out in 2012, I did not quite know what to think. The concept and the words were good, but the finished product seemed, well, a bit unfinished.  We are now in 2020 and Microsoft has turned Surface into a juggernaut driving nearly $6B in sales the past four quarters.   …
