Unusually Usual USB Connections

- Martina Horner is a psychologist known for pioneering the concept of “fear of success”. Her research focuses on intelligence and motivation. She has this to say about learning; “What is important is to keep learning, to enjoy challenge, and to tolerate ambiguity. In the end there are no certain answers.” Martina should have been in the AV industry. In this industry, at just about the time you think you’ve got something figured out along comes an ambiguous challenging learning moment for whic…

Drucker’s Efficiency and RapidRun Optical

- Peter Drucker, the great 20th Century business consultant and educator who invented the concept of ‘management by objective’, once said “There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all.” Think about this for a minute. Do it now, we’ll wait. Great, you’re back! That’s a very deep thought, isn’t it? The brilliance of Drucker’s observation is in its applicability to so many situations. I can’t help but believe it fits perfectly whenever I see a project wher…

Chef's Choice

- I enjoy all forms of media and have for as long as I can remember. Music, film, sports and social discourse will eventually occupy any screen or speaker I control during the course of a day. From the thousands of songs in the iTunes library, to the hundreds of channels on the satellite radio in the car, to the apparently infinite sonic explorations possible with streaming Pandora and Spotify, I’ve found that the convenience of access as delivered by advancing technology has sparked an insatiab…

A Revolution In C

- Previously I’ve written about the introduction of a new USB connector. New USB 3.1 standards, released in July 2013 and not included in any products on the market yet, hinted at this upcoming change. The actual specification for the new connector (released about a week ago as I write this) is related to both that USB 3.1 standard and the new USB Power Delivery standard, which was released as an element of 3.1 (we’ll be talking a lot more about these standards and what they might mean in upcomin…

5 Technologies That Will Change Everything

- It is impossible for anyone to predict the future. Having said that, we can accept that there is a difference between a forecast and a prediction. Careful analysis of industry direction, product trends and emerging applications will inform any good researcher about the likelihood of one particular outcome or another. Although it’s an imperfect science, it is a scientific exercise and the health of any business depends upon the quality of forecasts. I’ve spent the last 18 months refining the fo…

Take the Bus!

- The word “bus” has its etymological roots in the word “omnibus” and first appeared in the English language in the earliest part of the 19th Century. We didn’t “miss the bus” until the beginning of the 20th Century, and we didn’t “bus tables” until the very edge of World War I was upon us. But the electrical bus we discuss here had to wait until Niklola Tesla and Thomas Edison finished their feud and ushered in the age of technology! In electronic and computer terminology, “bus” is used to des…
