New York — The Anti-Defamation League’s National Consumer Technology Industry divisio
I’m old enough to remember exactly where I was 50 years ago today. I was in grammar school, Annunciation School on Havemeyer Street in Brooklyn, N.Y. Our principal, Sister Mary Dominic, in her full habit, literally ran into our classroom and got our teacher out into the hall. We knew it was important because our principal never ran anywhere.
After much commotion, our teacher, Sister Mary Christine, told us that the president had been shot. We weren’t told, or we didn
This is a truly bad idea. I speak from experience on this topic, and I hope with all my heart that the FCC’s proposal is shot down, no pun intended.
FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler explained his decision yesterday by saying expanding mobile service on flights can be done safely, meaning the devices will not interfere with the plane’s instruments. However, there is another danger lurking that he does not address.
I may be wrong, but I would bet that Wheeler has never been a
Black Friday, as U.S. consumers knew it over the past 30 years or more, is just about over.
No, this is not me ranting again about “Black November” (bargains all month), “Black Thanksgiving” (opening stores that evening or that day) or even “Merry Thansgivoween” (from a Detroit Free Press cartoon from Mike Thomson a few years ago, about the rushing of the seasons in the fall
Time is running out. If you haven’t already created and started to execute your public relations program for the 2014 International CES, then before you sit down to Thanksgiving dinner, you had better get started. For smaller, lesser-known companies exhibiting at CES, getting visibility with the thousands of reporters and bloggers can be challenging, but if you have a unique product or compelling story to tell, there are opportunities.
Here are six steps to get you
The headphones world is a never-ending source of news, be it unremitting product introductions or company efforts to stand out in the shoulder-to-shoulder crowded market. Here’s a roundup of just a few things announced this week. For even more news, see the Nov. 18 issue of TWICE or the headphones section of TWICE.com.
Jabra unveiled its Rox wireless ear buds, which feature both Bluetooth and
I am going to be a hypocrite.
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year, and it deeply bothers me that most of the noise surrounding this day has to do with when stores are opening. Personally, I would rather see every store close and then open at a reasonable hour the next day.
As the holiday season fast approaches, the big question is what’s going to happen in the electronics market. There has been a lot of discussion about the strong product slate hitting the store shelves, the impact of mobile and ecommerce, showrooming, the robust marketing that is likely to occur due to the shortened selling season, and the iffy economic environment creating a volatile and maybe a little uncertain mix for this year’s sales opportunities. But most of that is noise.
I was just coming to grips with the notion of a Panasonic plasma-less world when Dish today announced it is shuttering its last remaining Blockbuster stores.
While the move was inevitable, it reminds us of the tremendous forces of change driving the CE industry. To paraphrase The Buggles, digital killed the video store.
At the risk of sounding maudlin, it also speaks to a rapidly changing cultural landscape, in which a remote control
I’ve been involved with CE since 1978 and can’t recall a time when some to many weren’t predicting the demise of the 12-volt aftermarket. Initially that wasn’t logical given the poor state of vehicle OEM. Aftermarket was simply better and people bought it.
Beginning in the early 90s things began to change as OEM improved significantly. Today the quality of 12-volt OEM is quite good, certainly so from the perspective of most new car buyers. Or is it?
Anna Gray is TWICE’s intern. She is currently attending Brooklyn College and will give her insight via several blog entries into how she goes about buying CE and CE-related products.
It seems to me that in order to succeed today, you need to have one thing. No, not an iPhone, although that would be useful too. I’m talking about a second language.
If you’re lucky enough to have grown up in a multilingual household, I hope you took full
