This week on The Waves of Tech 227, we are back talking about Amazon again. Amazon is holding an event this week where they are reported to reveal their entrance into the smartphone business. We follow up from a previous show about Steve’s digital conversion experience and wrap the show up with showing how deployed fathers stay in touch with families. Enjoy the show and continue to ride…the waves of tech.
In just under seven years, Amazon has become a household name with the release of the Kindle, Kindle Fire HD, and the recent Amazon FireTV. Ladies and gentlemen, you can now add a smartphone to your wishlist. This Wednesday, Amazon is set to announce the news and provide some detail to those with inquiring minds. The company has been very profitable…not to bad for a company that started as an online bookstore.
Steve’s Digital Conversion
A few shows past, we discuss how most companies do not offer great services and pricing when trying to bundle of our home-use needs (Internet, cell phone, cable, home phone). In an attempt to reduce some costs around the house and find the best deals, we went on a quest to find the perfect combination for our needs. Listen and see what happens.
Fire and Technology
With so much new technology, it is often the case that we forget about some of the simplest and most reliable technology out there – Fire Detectors. A simple construct saves thousands of lives, memories, and loved ones every year. Steve had the unfortunate opportunity of having to deal with a kitchen fire, yet simple technologies help us day in and day out that we often forget.
We are sure you feel the same about this topic. It is terribly difficult to watch commercials and TV events where we see American servicemen and servicewomen deployed, a far distance from their families. With now having access to platforms such as Skype, Facebook, and email via a secure site, all the deployed have an opportunity to engage their sons, daughters, wives, and husbands on a regular basis.
