Is Moore’s Law Less Important to the Tech Industry?

The central organizing principle of much of the tech industry is Moore’s Law. In one very important sense, it may be of less value than it once was.

Moore’s Law is the notion that the density of transistors on a chip tends to double every 18 to 24 months. That doubling was also a way of organizing the industry, though, and that is what is changing.

In an era of cloud computing, people assume there are large amounts of computing power at all times, unconstrained by a single device. With mobile computing, apps work with computing strength on the device and in the cloud. People don’t obey upgrade cycles like they used to.

If the periodic reliability of Moore’s Law matters less for organizing the industry, what is likely to replace it?

Is Silicon Valley Funding the Wrong Stuff?

Social networks that allow you to send only the message “Yo” to your contacts. Food-delivery services valued at $400 million. Startups that deliver rolls of quarters to your home (just $27 for $20 in change!).

It isn’t hard, looking at a lineup like this, to conclude that Silicon Valley has jumped the shark. The entire Bay Area appears to have given up on solving anything but its own problems: those afflicting the same 20-somethings who are building these startups.

“Do you believe there is more innovation today than 20 years ago?” asks Yatin Mundkur,...

What he does mean is the kind of basic research and development that transforms lives, in fields such as energy, medicine or food safety, rather than just optimizing advertising platforms.

Internet of Things: What is the IoT?

Here’s why the Internet of things just became very interesting

Experts are heralding the Internet of Things (IoT) computing phase as the next industrial revolution, estimating 50 billion connected devices and IoT solutions reaching $7.1 trillion by 2020.

While we won’t refute these arguments, a focus on shareholder positioning will help us better understand where we are in the IoT cycle and how positioning IoT into a company’s story just became that much more pressing.

Internet of Things: Technology & Development

Internet of things startup Octoblu designs a platform that translates protocols

While big companies are working hard to impose standards on the burgeoning Internet of things (IoT), little Octoblu is willing to be the translator between whatever protocols to connect every thing with every other thing.

Octoblu came out of stealth mode today with a focus on the industrial side of the IoT. Its core product is the Meshblu platform that, according to a statement, “can be used for the discovery, control and management of any API [application performance interface]-based software application, any hardware or appliance, or social media network.”

Wearables At Work: Early Adopters Will Win

The sun is setting on the golden age of the smartphone. And the same goes for tablets. We are entering the post-mobile world.

Need to send a message to your friend? Talk to your smartwatch. Need directions? Consult your glasses. Have to contact your doctor about your latest blood pressure readings? That monitor you're wearing already did it.

OK, let’s not get completely ahead of ourselves. Smartphones and tablets are here to stay, but their sales have begun to level off, and the technology industry is ready for the next big thing.

That next big thing is wearables. Devices like Google Glass, smartwatches, fitness trackers that attach to clothing, health monitors worn on (or even in) the body -- these hands-free innovations are the future.
