Tech Apocalypse

Tech Apocalypse: Why Are Tech Billionaires Prepping?

Nobody is immune to the troubles of today's world. Hence, not even those in computer repair and IT support. No, not even tech billionaires and leaders. In fact, many of them already flee a potential tech apocalypse. So as I write this, there are tech billionaires and Silicon Valley leaders buying land in New Zealand.

2016 In Tech: Stop the Madness!

The year 2016 in tech is memorable, and hardly in a good way. Furthermore, in many ways, everything that could go wrong did. So here are five highlights (if you want to call them that) in the industry. 2016 in tech: Stop the madness! First of all, there was the crazy election.

How Silicon Valley’s Handling The Election

Thank goodness it's over now. Thank goodness the most contentious election in American history is over. But Silicon Valley, mostly Hilary Clinton supporters, aren't taking it so well.

Hence, this deal gives AT&T control of cable channels HBO and CNN. It would also [...]

The World Economic Forum is a global organization dedicated to economic improvement and innovation. Now, the World Economic Forum comes to San Francisco, neighboring the Silicon Valley. The San Francisco stay is permanent. They chose San Francisco for their second US office. Since the San Francisco Bay area is a tech powerhouse, it makes perfect sense to choose this city. The other US headquarters are in New York City. While global headquarters are in Beijing, China and Tokyo, Japan. Therefore, [...]

What About Generation Z?

There's been a lot of talk about Millennials, the generation born between 1981-1998. We can't deny their contribution to technology, as innovators, leaders, tech employees, and obviously, tech consumers. But what about the generation coming after them?
