the internet of things: the opportunities and risks of an increasingly hyper-connected world

AN EXPANDING NETWORK THAT WILL DRIVE THE FUTURE “When wireless is perfectly applied the whole earth will be converted into a huge brain, which in fact it is, all things being particles of a real and rhythmic whole.” Famed inventor and futurist Nikola Tesla said this in an interview with Collier’s magazine in 1926 . Fast-forward nearly 100 years, and the huge brain he predicted is pulsing away – and growing at an exponential rate. There are already seven billion devices connected to the Internet of Things – not even including smartphones, tablets, laptops or fixed phone lines. Applying Tesla’s prediction, this means that some time in the not-too-distant future, there will be more devices connected to the “huge” converted brain, than there will be human brains on the planet. In fact, some…

walmart ups the delivery game with next day shipping

Walmart is rolling out free next-day delivery on its most popular items, increasing the stakes in the retail shipping wars with Amazon. The nation’s largest retailer said it’s been building a network of more efficient e-commerce distribution centers to make that happen. The next-day service will cover 220,000 popular items from diapers and non-perishable food items to toys and electronics. That’s nearly double the number of items it carries in its stores. Next-day delivery, which will require a minimum order of $35, will be available in Phoenix, Arizona, and Las Vegas. In coming days, it will expand to southern California. The discounter plans to roll out the service to 75% of the U.S. population by year-end. It will also be adding hundreds of thousands more products as the program expands. The announcement comes just…

apple revamps tv app for direct subscriptions to channels

Apple users will be able to subscribe to HBO, Showtime and a handful of other channels directly through Apple’s new TV app, bypassing the need to download or launch a separate app. The new capabilities available this week come ahead of Apple’s plan to offer its own original shows, including ones from Oprah Winfrey and Steven Spielberg. Those shows will be part of an Apple TV Plus subscription coming later this year for a yet-to-be disclosed price. Hulu and Amazon already offer premium channels as add-ons to their regular subscriptions, and both have original shows. Apple is trying to catch up on streaming video to make up for a slowdown in iPhone sales. Although those channels are already available as part of individual apps for iPhones, iPads or Apple TV, buying subscriptions through…

carnegie library: inside apple’s new flagship store

Carnegie Library has been labeled Apple’s “most historic, ambitious restoration by far,” an Apple Store that’s more than two years in the making, costing over $30 million. This week, we lift the lid on the new retail space, exploring the site’s expansive history, and its role in reshaping the Apple Store experience as we head into the company’s service-focused era. STEEPED IN HISTORY It’s unusual to label a retail location iconic on the day it opens its doors, but that’s what you get when you spend tens of millions renovating one of Washington’s most renowned sites. It was a tall order for Apple to take on the responsibility of a location steeped in history, but the company has now cemented itself as an American hero - pumping life into locations that had…

apps cost too much? court allows suit adding to apple’s woes

Consumers can pursue a lawsuit complaining that iPhone apps cost too much, the Supreme Court ruled this week, adding to Apple’s woes that already include falling iPhone sales and a European investigation. The lawsuit could have major implications for the tech giant’s handling of the more than 2 million apps in Apple’s App Store, where users get much of the software for their smartphones. While most of those apps are free to download, some impose fees for people to use the software and subscribe to the services. In those cases, Apple charges a commission of 30%, a practice that the lawsuit contends unfairly drives up the price for the apps. Justice Brett Kavanaugh wrote the majority opinion that agreed the antitrust lawsuit can move forward in a lower court. The court’s four liberal…
