Apple has shown the rest of the industry what a smartwatch should look like and how it should behave. Now the question is whether consumers want to strap anything onto their wrists -- beautiful and functional or not. That jury is still out. [More...]

Fire With Firefly
Amazon's Fire Phone created a certain amount of consternation upon its debut -- it's decidedly different from other smartphones on the market. One thing that reviewers agreed on, though, was that Amazon fans would love it.

The BYOD trend offers pluses for both employers and employees, but sometimes there's a hitch. Under certain circumstances, the owner of a device suddenly might lose all of the data stored on it.

Apple has succeeded -- as usual -- in drumming up feverish excitement over its product announcements slated for Tuesday, but there's a certain amount of apprehension that the event could disappoint. Maybe that's because the company is a little off balance from its leaky iCloud debacle. Maybe there's worry that its iWatch won't be a stunner. Or maybe it's just that Tim Cook lacks charisma.

It is a given that a marketing campaign must include a social media element -- especially when a brand is rolling out a new product. What is less certain is on which channel the brand should focus its time and resources. An answer was provided last week by Aol Platforms, which released the results of a study that tracked social purchase interactions through Convertro. [More...]

The U.S. government spends tens of billions of dollars each year on information technology -- by some estimates more than $100 billion. As a result, IT is a highly visible target when the overall federal budget comes under scrutiny. Problems associated with IT operations -- such as the botched launch of the Affordable Care Act -- only intensify such scrutiny. [More...]

apple-catcher-labor-violations
Two labor watchdogs are snarling at Apple over conditions at a Chinese supplier, and urging consumers to think twice before getting in line for a new iPhone. "We wanted to make sure that the human rights and environmental safety violations in Apple's supply chain are at the forefront of people's minds if they're considering a new electronic device," said Green America's Elizabeth O'Connell.
