IDG Contributor Network: macOS: How to speed up a slow Mac

Macs, like any other computer, start slowing down over time. It’s a rather harsh fact of computing life that affects us all eventually. That speed demon Mac you bought a year ago won’t stay that fast as time goes by and, sooner or later, you’ll notice the difference in performance. So how can you speed it up? A writer at CNet has some helpful tips that can make your Mac fast again. Matt Elliott reports for CNet: The only place I like seeing a beach ball is at a beach or in a stadium during a baseball game or concert.

IDG Contributor Network: Inevitability of IoT creates new challenges for manufacturers

The big message coming out of CES 2017 is that the Internet of Things (IoT) is coming into your life whether you like it or not. Appliance manufacturers are following television manufacturers and making “smart” a standard feature, not an upsell. Home Automation and IoT aficionado Stacy Higginbotham reported that she saw everything connected at CES but was surprised that “connected grooming products appears to be a theme.” The real theme here is that manufacturers are adding IoT because it solves their problems. Data from product use helps them understand how well their products work for users and how they fail. This data helps them design better product for their customers and gives them a new offering for new customers — marketing teams interested in the behavior and preferences of the product customers.

IDG Contributor Network: Why Amazon Go presages a new era of smart supermarkets

Over the past few years, we have seen self-checkout machines being used in our grocery stores. As a result, analysts wonder whether the grocery store clerk may become entirely supplanted by machinery. Amazon appears to be betting that will be the case with its Amazon Go store, a cashier-free store that relies on apps and cameras to account for what customers purchase.For now, Amazon Go is only in a beta stage, as the single Seattle store is only open to Amazon employees and focuses more on ready-to-eat meals instead of produce. But Amazon Go, along with Amazon’s effort at creating its own physical bookstores in Amazon Books, are signs of how retail could dramatically change with the advent of technology. Amazon Go and computers could change how supermarkets are run, the food that goes in them, and by changing our supermarkets could change how our cities and towns are built.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
