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? What about Generation Z (born between 1999-present)? That's just one name they're being called. Some call them Centennials. Some call them the iGeneration.

Generation X and Technology

I'm going to try and keep this tech based, so bear with me. Does it seems like Generation X (born between 1965-1980) is the forgotten generation? Does it seem so even when it comes to Generation X and technology? I came across this article. The title has a naughty word, so reader discretion is advised. I'll link it here. I don't agree with everything Matt Honan says, but he has valid points. The technology we take for granted wouldn't be here if [...]

California Isn’t The Only Candy Store In Town

Some think there are only two places to make it big in the tech world: San Francisco and the Silicon Valley. That's not necessarily the case. California isn't the only candy store in town when it comes to tech jobs. I read a story about Kate Rogers, manager of a website builder called Weebly. She was tired of long commutes, high rent, and woeful wealth inequality gap in San Francisco. She moved to Phoenix. Rogers has never been happier. She [...]

Five Years of Tim Cook

This month, Apple CEO Tim Cook will celebrate his fifth anniversary in that position. In an interview, Cook reflects on these five years, and no topic is off limits.

The Most Quiet Room Ever

How would you like to work in the most quiet room ever? Microsoft headquarters in Redmond, Washington has it. This computer lab in Microsoft's Building 88 even made the Guinness Book of World Records. A tech insider named Matt Weinberger spend five minutes in this contraption. Microsoft lab engineer Gopal Gopal (I'm assuming that's his real name) gave him the tour. Why is this room so quiet? It's because this 'anechoic chamber' needs complete silence for audio testing. Here, they tests [...]

Media Mogul Leaves Post For Good Cause

How much would you sacrifice to support a cause? Would you give half your life savings? Would you move to a foreign country? Would you leave the company you founded? One media mogul does the latter. Huffington Post co-founder Arianna Huffington leaves the company she helped turned into a digital media powerhouse. She signed a deal to be editor-in-chief until 2019. She's starting a company called Thrive Global. It's a media tech company dedicated to health issues. Yes, Huffington is [...]

Apple Makes Progress In Diversity

Even the tech industry lacks in some things. Diversity is one of them. Year after year, we see how lily white and male the tech industry often is. Thankfully, that's starting to change. Apple makes progress in diversity. As of August 2016, 32 percent of Apple's US work force are women. Nine percent are Black. Twelve percent are Latino. In Apple's global employment, 37% are women. They're making strides in minority hiring. In the last year, 27% of hires represented [...]

Microsoft Plans 2,850 Job Cuts

Apple stocks are soaring. Nintendo makes a comeback, thanks to Pokemon Go. Amazon has never been better. But one tech giant is downsizing. Microsoft plans 2,850 job cuts. This adds to the 7,400 job cuts that occurred between July 2015 and June 2016. These new cuts began early this month. They will continue through 2017. You may think, "But it's Microsoft. These numbers are nothing, right?"  Not really. Microsoft employs 113,000 people. Over half those jobs belong to Americans. The [...]
