The Internet of Things is expected to be a $7 trillion market in six years. However, many small to medium-sized IT firms that do not have the capital to acquire the Nests of the world are left to wonder how they can benefit from this lucrative trend.

Do not try and bend the phone. That's impossible. Instead... only try to realize the truth. What truth? There is no phone. There is no phone? Then you'll see, that it is not the phone that bends, it is only yourself. OK, so there is a phone -- but Apple apparently doesn't want consumers to believe what they see in a viral video. Can the company's confident, simple denial make Bendgate go away? [More...]

Amazon may have a new mission for the struggling postal service -- delivering fresh groceries along with the odd letter that still travels by snail mail. Amazon has been wiggling deeper into the food business, with its Amazon Prime Pantry service and the launch of AmazonFresh in a few cities. A deal with USPS could make rapid scaling of that service possible -- and profitable for both. [More...]

Walk into any electronics store and you will find antivirus software from companies like Norton, ESET, McAfee and Kaspersky. In the last few years, the risk has spread from our computers to our smartphones and our tablets. The next thing we will have to protect may be our cars -- and our lives could depend on it.

Arguments over Comcast's proposed merger with Time Warner Cable have become more combative if not more substantive. The companies involved are "using the media to play this thing out, which is absurd," said tech analyst Dan Rayburn. "We don't know who said what to whom -- we don't know what anyone is actually paying. Without any of those details, it's just a bunch of spoiled kids arguing." [More...]

The power of e-commerce lies in the simplicity and ease of use delivered to customers. Giving customers the ability to quickly find a product, buy it and have it delivered -- without visiting a store or even speak with a salesperson -- lets companies sell on a massive scale with little overhead.

Blackberry Passport
BlackBerry is about to present its Passport to the business world -- a smartphone that costs less than rivals, while offering more screen real estate and a physical keyboard. The only hitch, in the words of tech analyst Roger Entner, is that "oh my god, this is ugly." Well, "pretty is as pretty does," BlackBerry might fire back.
