A differentiated wearable strategy

Collage by New York Times

In CES 2014, people found wearables to be a new hot trend.

Diabetic? Wear a contact lens !

Many of us have heard of the Google Glass. Have you heard of Google Contact Lens? Yes! One is in the making in a secret lab at MountainView California. Google and Novartis are said to be jointly working on this project.

What is Mobility

We will rather focus on wireless mobility technology here and focus on how this technology provides people greater ability to be productive while they are moving around and therefore are able to lead a more balanced life. We are talking about wireless mobility in the context of Information Technology.

Let us say you are in a shop. A product in display looks attractive. You want to buy it. However, you do not remember if there is enough money to spare in the bank account. You would like to check first. It is already 8pm in the evening and the bank will be closed.

If You Have To Set Up a Cloud Computer, What Will You Consider?

We talked earlier about mail providers like Gmail. Let us take that as an example because most of us are familiar with Gmail. We know that millions of people around any country use Gmail service today. They all access the application that runs on a computer inside the cloud. During a typical day, it is easy to imagine lean periods of Gmail usage where only a handful of people are consuming Gmail services. It is equally easy to imagine a time of the day where hundreds of thousands of people (peak periods) could be simultaneously checking e-mail.
