Personal Drones - The Future Is Now
The JetsonsIn as much as the cartoon the Jetsons made a spoof of a future world with flying vehicles and radio controlled appliances, this article from Wired.com creates the visual that I've been thinking we are headed for in less than 20 years down the road. With overcrowded highways and better use of unmanned vehicle technology, it doesn't seem far fetched that hundreds of personal drones could be taking to the skies delivering people quietly and flawlessly to their destinations. Having a personal airport on the balcony of your high rise looks like a great idea.

The other side of that vision is the class separation that will come between have and the have nots. Those unable to afford such upgrades will be left in the masses on the ground where the deliver of goods, health care and the overall quality of life is not as good, like a scene out of Elysium. The future lies somewhere between these two visions.


Distributed Phone Systems - Ring Central
RingCentral

A few years ago I wanted to have a separate phone number for a startup company, but since we are only a few members, and in different locations, it needed to on a system we could all make calls from it and redirect for availability.  After trying a couple I've found RingCentral.com to be the best and most affordable.

Here are some of the key features for a small company that can make you look like a big well run operation.  First you choose a number for your business, then with their phone app, you to make and receive calls from your cell phone with the other number.  When some calls your business you can route them by extensions you set up to other employees cell phones and everyone can make make and receive calls from that number. It's one of many great features, plus you have logging to see what calls have been made. This feature is really helpful to make sure you don't miss or followed up on a call.  There's even a feature for direct digital recording your calls.

Take a test drive on RingCentral.com.


Blockchain Technology
Blockchain

Blockchain technology can be boiled down to an accounting ledger built on a network of servers.  There's a detailed article and infographic included on Recode.net that will give you an overview of how any why this financial technology will shape more than just crypto currency transactions in the future.

Blockchain technology is developing very quickly into an established transaction method and disrupting the financial services industry.

Personal Aviation - Lilium's Jet
lilium-aviation.com

Looking through TheNextWeb and saw this aircraft in the Distract section,  it's Lilium's new jet, a cross between an aircraft and helicopter with automatic vertical take off and landing.

The power plant is electric and can reach a max speed of 250 mph to an altitude of 10k feet with an overall range of 300 miles.  More than enough power for the daily commute and the weekend get away.


I'm sure I can't afford it, but I want it.  And, Lilium plans to roll-out to consumers beginning as early as January of 2018.  The future is now and starting to look a lot like the Jetson's cartoon.  Sign up on Lilium's site to be the first on your block with a Lilium Jet.

TheNextWeb.com - Tech News & Insights

I found TheNextWeb while looking for information about wearables (great seo by the way) Wearables are technology devices that you wear.  I discovered a passage called Wearables Reach Employees in an article by JT Ripton titled 6 Technology Trends for 2016.

My interest in wearable is in how they can be useful and monetized in the private sector.  Clearly, the applications for police, fire rescue and military are needed and in the future may be looked upon as how could we have ever done without them.  But, other than convenience what applications do they really hold?  Now after reading the article, from a psychology viewpoint the the possibilities are endless.  Here's an exert:

Some companies are giving wearables to their employees on the ground for second-by-second inventory updates.  Others are using them internally to see how their corporate employees interact.

Content Marketing is Website Marketing
Site Marketing

Although this article is on the subject of content marketing it overlaps into all areas of digital marketing. I found this great article by Richard Darell while doing research for a strategic marketing plan for a new project. There's a detailed infographic included by ZenContent that helped me form the basis of my plan.

I was having a touch of writers block getting started on this marketing plan and can see when a business becomes too close to itself to be able to write effectively for their own products. Whether it is the lack of time or just the need for a fresh perspective, consider hiring professional content writers from ZenContent.

Promoting your website is essentially content marketing. Quality content gets a new customer to the door and engages the the ones that have already made purchases. Add a great domain name and building more engaging content provides the search engines with a bigger target to hit and will dynamically improve your SEO efforts.

So This Is Real? Direct Energy Weapons
DEW Tech

Technology is certainly approaching the steeper part of the slope as today the Army announces Direct Energy Weapons (DEW) technology will be ready by 2020 for use by the Air Force and on ground systems by 2023.

I think there is a lot more development that will accelerate greater advancements in laser technology systems prior to their targeted release dates making these systems even more powerful and capable. These weapons and defense systems would work well in a conventional warfare situation where targets are known and intentions are direct.

The systems we need to develop are for countering more covert scenarios as in terrorist plots where the enemy is already behind our lines. Breakthroughs in tech, whether it's sophisticated hardware systems or analyzing huge sums of real-time data, will define the future.

Update - 06/14/2016 The cat technology is getting better every day.

DonaldJTrump.com acquires JebBush.com
Trump picks up JebBush.com

Just found this on Imgur.com under current events.   According to this post, evidently Jeb Bush, or most likely one of his staffers, let the domain JebBush.com expire and now redirects to DonaldJTrump.com.

You can say a lot of things about Trump, but at least he understands the value of domain names and how to manage them.  How does Jeb's management let this happen at such a critical time?

Running and maintaining technology should be a litmus test for running the country.  Another candidate can't seem to manage an email account, yet she feels qualified to run as president.  Not to mention the one we've got paid over 600 million for Healthcare.gov.

Trump just elevated his traffic level and owned Jeb, literally.
