‘The App-Driven Life: How To Stick To Your 2014 New Year’s Resolutions’ – ‘ReadWrite’

The latest post on ‘ReadWrite’ is titled “The App-Driven Life: How To Stick To Your 2014 New Year’s Resolutions”. Lauren Orsini says, “New Year’s resolutions are so ridiculously ineffective, it’s a wonder why we even keep up this futile tradition year after year. According to USA.gov, in America, virtually the same resolutions are popular every year.

‘How Tech Is Driving The Business Of Instant Gratification’ – ‘ReadWrite’

The latest post on ‘ReadWrite’ is titled “How Tech Is Driving The Business Of Instant Gratification”. Selena Larson says, “Instant gratification can’t come soon enough. In 2013, the runaway success of Uber, the service that lets you call a car by tapping your smartphone, has gotten consumers, retailers, and investors thinking about a world where just about any good or service is available on demand. Increasingly, in urban areas, that thought is becoming a reality. This has been a long time coming. You could buy a pizza online in 1994—though you had to disconnect from... [...]

Taylor Hatmaker says, “As the explosive trajectory of smartphones adoption approaches an asymptote, mobile apps are riding high. Once an unassuming term for a curious, smallish sort of phone program, the app is now king. It’s almost impossible to now imagine otherwise. In this mobile-first era, apps make headlines, precipitate stock slumps and altogether define an industry that didn’t see them coming a mere six years ago when Apple released the App Store. Here is our list of the... [...]

If you’re talking hype, then there is little doubt that the Internet of Things will continue to vie for the center of everyone’s attention. In terms of actual forward progress, don’t hold your breath for a big event. In reality, there probably won’t be a big breakout moment for the Internet of Things in 2014“.
