Get ready for the “Internet of Things” – part 2

internet of things 2The Internet of Things is a fast moving epic transformation that, like earlier iterations of the internet, is redefining how information is created, disseminated, and consumed. Uniquely, though, IoT is projected to be even bigger than what has gone before, with some estimating it to be worth $19 trillion in the next decade.

Microsoft Windows – Start Returns

windowsOn Wednesday, April 2, Microsoft announced during the Annual Build Developers Conference in California that it is responding to ongoing customer feedback and will be bringing back the Start menu everyone had gotten used to. That is the good news. The “undefined” news is when this return to the past will actually be available. The Start menu that Microsoft debuted on Wednesday looked very much like the one found in Windows 7. When the Start button is clicked, users got access to the applications installed on the computer as well as allowing quick access to user interface applications. The older versions of the start menu were what a generation of PC users grew up on (sample below) and when they lost it with the release of Windows 8, there was a reaction somewhere between disgruntled and a mild tech revolution.
