Meet Your New Weatherman: IBM’s Watson

For all the differences between us humans, there’s one topic that we all seem to enjoy freely talking about: The weather. And there’s usually one gripe in particular that unites us all – weather forecasting! On a local level, there’s an outright battle between television stations as to who has the biggest radar, the best...

Three Reasons Behind the New Year Selloff

2016 certainly came in storming. Right off the bat, investors were met with a major selloff. The U.S. stock market was, at one point, suffering through its worst opening day of a new year since 1932. It ultimately regained its footing, relatively speaking, and January 4, 2016 ended up being the worst start to a...

Invest Wisely in 2016 – And Beyond

As we begin 2016, I want to present readers with two seemingly unconnected facts. First, the U.S. government is not giving a cost of living adjustment to Social Security recipients for the third time since 2010. Second, the S&P 500 Index closed at 2,052 on November 18, 2014.

Coming Soon: The Brain-Powered Car

We’ve all heard about the self-driving car technology currently being developed by Alphabet Inc. (GOOG), Toyota Motors Corp. (TM), and Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. (NSANY), among others.

If you’re a Star Trek fan, CBS just made your day. It announced that it’s bringing back a Star Trek television series. But there’s a catch… In a sign of the changing times in the TV industry, the only way to see the new series will be to subscribe to CBS All Access – the...

Can You Really Protect Your Online Data?

In Tuesday evening’s Democratic Primary Debate, the candidates were asked about the biggest threat facing America  today. Naturally, Middle East volatility and the rise of ISIS were cited, in addition to nuclear weapons falling into the wrong hands. But it was somewhat surprising that only one candidate – former Virginia Senator Jim Webb – mentioned...

Smartwatch War: Can Anyone Challenge Apple?

As my colleague Louis Basenese mentioned on Wednesday, Apple’s (AAPL) product launch event last week contained the usual buzz and hype over new gadgets. But one thing was conspicuously absent from CEO Tim Cook’s two-hour presentation: Despite the Apple Watch being the first product mentioned, and getting all kinds of functionality and fashion updates, Cook...

Why Apple Is a No-Brainer Investment Right Now

Two new iPhones – the 6s and 6s Plus… A larger tablet – the iPad Pro… A new Apple TV… Updated software for the Apple Watch. All products that Apple (AAPL) revealed in its latest highly anticipated launch event last week. And all products that were either leaked or rumored weeks ago. My colleague, Greg...
