Changing of the GUARDZ !!

Zippy here…I just returned from CES 2015 with a great outlook on the future.    Every year I go, and every year I wonder what will be the key theme.    There is always a lot of “Marketing Hype”, but it takes a keen frog’s eye to spot the diamonds among the dust. The most interesting technology

Look Ma…. No Hands !!!

I think we should all have Gun Turrets on our Cars !! Yes – I said it. Now, don’t get too upset with me….Yes – there are a few people who deserve the full monte here, but that’s not what I’m suggesting. I think we should have PAINT BALL Guns locked and loaded, so that

Fog

It is very foggy outside today, and for some reason it is reminding me of the foggy world of business these days. It’s hard out there.  Plain and simple. Sometimes I wonder why it is so hard.  Competition is one reason, it’s much easier for a small business to look like a big business, and
