Wearable Tech to shine at #CES2014

Wearable Tech to shine at #CES2014

I’m going to make a prediction about the hot topic from the 2014. Wearable technology. While I’m sure that the 2014 International CES will have the most people wearing Google Glass (including me) at an event outside of Google, the talk of the event with most likely be wearable technology that connects with the devices we carry with us every day.

Here are just a few examples of products that I’ll be looking for in Las Vegas.

The 2014 CES will feature more than 3,200 exhibitors unveiling the latest consumer technology products and services across 15 product categories. For more information on the 2014 International CES, visit CESweb.org.

I am really enjoying being a part of the Verizon Wireless Ambassador program, although, I have to admit I was not in love with the last phone I had the BlackBerry Z10.   
Don’t get me wrong, Verizon wireless coverage kicks the crap out of the coverage I get with T-mobile.. My current carrier.  
Imagine my surprise when the new phone they sent me to try out was another Blackberry.  This time, the Q10.

Wait, before you go stripping me of my ambassadorship, I must confess.  I actually like this phone.  
That blasted Blackberry Keyboard is addictive.

What I like about the Blackberry Q10
1.  The BBQ10 has great hand feel.   Traditional Blackberry owners will absolutely love.
2. Battery life is amazing.  
3. The Blackberry Keyboard takes me back to my G1.  I know we live in a swiping world, but this girl loves a keyboard.
4. Social Media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, and Foursquare come pre-loaded.  
5. Cloud storage apps give me access to my files on Box.com and Dropbox.
6. The browser is fast

What I don’t like about the BlackberryQ10
1. It’s all about apps.  No Hootsuite, No Facebook pages manager,  No Instagram, No (insert Google app here).
2. The alerts are driving me crazy.  I know this is a problem of the nut behind the BlackBerry keyboard,  but changing the alert settings is not intuitive. 
Back in the day, accessing email, managing and editing documents was how most of us did business.  There are just not the apps in the BlackBerry World for how I do business today.  
I’m sure that will change as more developers get back on the BB bandwagon.   

All in all, a good comeback for BlackBerry and a good start for  Alicia Keys,  BlackBerry’s new Global Creative Director

Discussing the Future of Meetings with PYM Live

Discussing the Future of Meetings with PYM Live

I was honored to join in the PYM LIVE Dallas panel of meetings industry veterans to discuss current challenges (budgets, negotiations, bandwidth), what’s new with meetings (cool tech tools, low-cost engagement ideas, F&B) and what’s next (industry threats, human/computer interaction, transportation challenges). On this panel: Me aka @PartyAficionado, @RedVelvetEvents @PYMLive @raciplace @tstuckrath.

We did this Google+ Hangout just before the Social Media Tulsa Conference. Of course as well prepared as I tried to be, some things just
didn’t work. All of the preparations for wifi fell victim to a third party router. You can see my post conference Google+ Hangout.
