If you're read tech news whether it is to keep up or researching new companies, Tech Crunch is a valuable resource. On TC each article about a company has in-depth information on the right side column. It links over to Crunch Base just click on the company title and you'll open up a whole chronological history of the founders, funding they may have received, investors, acquisitions and changes within the organization.
For the full info and additional research you should get the pro subscription that allows drilling down into companies, key players, websites, domain names and more. It has a nice java interface, looks like it was built with DHTMLX, but more than likely a custom cut. Well worth the subscript for professionals.
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.

I am surprised I had not come across TheNextWeb.com sooner. Their site has the best layout and quality of articles that I've had the pleasure of reading in a long time. I strongly recommend bookmarking it and check out the Insights and Offers sections. It's at the top of my reading list now.
While searching for domain technology news, I had the pleasure of stumbling upon another great technology site for tech startups that is a start up. Edward Domain is the founder and CEO of Techli.com He is a writer, U.S. Army veteran, serial entrepreneur and chronic early adopter. Having worked for startups in Silicon Valley and Chicago, Edward founded, grew and successfully exited his own previous startup and loves telling the tales of innovators everywhere. Based out of St. Louis, Techli.com also has a show on PBS that covers innovators in a candid business casual format that yields a closer personal experience of the entrepreneurs behind the scenes while delivering the synergy.
Techli.com has a nice layout and I found several several article worth reading, it's bookmark worthy and on my reading list. I'd like to see this level of ground floor reporting for innovative technology roll out to all major cities around the world.
I've been digging into futuristic technology and uncovered an article by Mike Edelhart on Yahoo/Tech news entitled, 9 Technologies That Will Soon Be Inside You. It's interesting news and there just might be some up and coming products to invest in.
I have to admit some of these tech products freak me out. These aren't ideas, they're working prototypes and the concepts, along with the business models, makes sense for each. It's easy to be comfortable with these, we already have several medical implants.
Here's the list: implantable smartphones, healing chips, cyber pills, implantable birth control, smart tattoos, brain-computer interface, meltable bio-batteries, smart dust and the verified self. Is this the biblical mark of the beast? Read the full article with the slide show here.
I stumbled upon the topic of technology camps and had to delve a little further. First the term 'tech camp' reminded me of some of the sweat shops I've worked in, they could be described as a 'camp', but more I found out there are quite a few tech camps catering to all ages, genders and vocations.
When I think of summer camp, I envision a lake in the mountains where kids roast marsh-mellows, ride canoes, fish and generally relax for a week or two. What's becoming more popular are tech camps for kids ages 6 and up and they're taking classes like programming, audio video engineering, robotics, and app design. I found technology camps not just for kids, but for teachers and executives to tune up with. Instructional design is the way of the new classroom any anyone that's familiar and comfortable with technology is going to be well ahead of the game. (And there's even game development classes.) At the college level there are even more camps to excel or catch up.
Tech camps aren't a new concept, but are growing. Here's and article by Tony Wan from 2013 with a list of popular kids camps. Camps and programs like these may just spark the genius in your child or expand an executive's insight.

The previous posts on business trends have gathered a little more interest, so in doing more research I found the following treasure trove on tech trends at Deloitte University Press. Deloitte's articles through and complete with graphs to supplement the projections. The growth forecasts coincide with other news on technology predictions and when you read over the article you'll see how well laid out this presentation is. My hat is off to Deloitte, Bill Briggs, Mariahna Moore and the cast of thousands that compiled this report.
The base concept is Globalization and thinking in terms of a global resources, supply chain management and emerging markets that are evolving with the technology. Right now we are at a tipping point with the growth of Asian and India's markets set to explode. Delivering services to these economies and the challenges that will ensue, can't even fathom the numbers the rewards will bring into the fold. We are just beyond the base of the curve where it's slope is about to go vertical. Artificial intelligence, robotics, wearables, battery tech, culture and class separation. This is by far the best report for all entrepreneurs to read or make a study of. A great series from Deloitte.
