Even though investors are putting in a lot of their money into the food delivery companies, they are still unable to solve some of the major problems that the food delivery space has been suffering from. The stock prices of the topmost food distributors, US Foods, and Sysco has been rising since last year. It was the same time when Amazon had taken over Whole Foods. But, since then, the two food distribution companies have not made any effort to change the business model to be able to compete with mega companies like Amazon.
Companies such as Amazon are pushing their services, and it is excellent news for the consumers that buy directly from them. The problem lies with the foodservice distribution sector that has not been able to get the attention and also the money to be able to serve their customers. A lot of times, food preparation facilities such as hotels, restaurants, school, catering companies and also business cafeterias are unable to procure ingredients to cook food for their consumers. It is no doubt that this market has enormous potential but is mostly being ignored. These food preparation companies depend on distributors from where they get their fresh ingredients. But the distribution system is highly ineffective and the price of ingredients varies drastically and has some limitations.
The need for the hour is a highly developed platform where the food businesses can browse the products through catalogs of the distributors and also place their orders online. The distributors can then make the delivery while maintaining the quality of their ingredients. There are more B2B distribution platforms needed, and start-ups should think of creating such platforms that can get a huge amount of investments. Since the industry already has low margins, it becomes difficult for them to add new technologies to their investment and has only a few players in the market. But, there is a lot of opportunities that can be explored and it would be great for the food preparation businesses.
Microsoft’s flagship operation system, Windows 10, will be getting an update in the near future known as Build 17661. Codenamed “Redstone 5”, there isn’t much known about exactly what we’ll be getting from the update. Among the number of fixes and features being introduced in this update that we are aware of, though, is a new screenshotting tool currently in testing this week.
Given that Windows 10 itself has so far been devoid of any efficient means of taking and sharing screenshots, various third-party apps like ShareX have routinely taken the stage to fill this need. Microsoft seems to have finally taken the hint that users would like this kind of feature in their operating system, introducing Screen Sketch as its own app.
Previously, Screen Sketch was simply a part of the Windows Ink software suite oriented for pen computing. With this update, Screen Sketch will be separated from Windows Ink, giving users easier access to screenshotting without losing any of the functionality that made it worthwhile before, namely the ability to draw on and annotate the screenshots taken through it.
The command to initiate Screen Sketch will become “winkey + shift + S”, which will bring up an area selection tool for users to pick how much of the screen they wish to capture. Once selected, a notification will give users the option to annotate and share their screenshots directly through the app. Traditional keyboard users will also have the option to replace the normal “winkey + printscreen” command for screenshotting with Screen Sketch, too.
Additional features of the update include tweaks to the control panel, Task View, and File Explorer, and new additions to Focus Assist’s ability to suppress notifications while you’re busy (it now blocks any that try to bother you while fullscreen in a game). More information is expected to come out during Microsoft’s Build developer conference next week.
You can now watch previews of movies and TV shows within Netflix’s mobile app. As reported by The Verge, the on-demand video provider recently updated its mobile app to include this feature.
Of course, users have been able to watch video previews on the Netflix’s TV interface since last year. Consisting of short 30-second clips, it provides users with a sneak peak of the show or movie without watching the entire program. Now, however, users on their mobile device can take advantage of this feature.
Upon launching the new Netflix app, users will see previews for shows and movies at the top, which they can click to watch. The previews are displayed as circles, and users can add them to their watch list just like any regular program that’s available on Netflix. If a user doesn’t want to watch a specific preview, he or she can swipe right to switch to the next preview.
So, how does Netflix decide which movies and shows to display as previews on its new mobile app? Like the platform’s TV interface, Netflix’s mobile app displays recommendations based on the user’s viewing history. Netflix has a complex algorithm that it uses to determine which movies and shows a user might like. By examining the user’s viewing history, it’s able to recommend similar shows and movies, displaying these titles as previews in the app. When announcing the newly updated mobile app, Netflix said years of testing showed that video previews help users find content more quickly.
Video previews is only available in Netflix’s iOS app, but the company says its planning to launch an Android version with this feature in the near future.
In the near future companies like Apple and Google, which have succeeded in phones and electronic technology, they now can enter a new business for themselves as carmakers. Many of you have probably heard of Google’s autonomous car.. I wonder at what point are we currently developing this car? What can we do in the autonomous car? Can I drive the car even though the car is set to drive itself? How fast can autonomous vehicles be driven? Is there a danger of the threat of online hackers to autonomous vehicles? I also find myself wondering, in how much control will I be if I am driving this car? Will the company have more control over my whereabouts than I do?
Currently, a number of automotive manufacturers are actively developing vehicles with complete autopilot installed systems. Also most cars are equipped with electric motors, which are operated with batteries. For example, the company developed Audi’s autonomous vehicle tentatively called A9. Even the company Mercedes has invested millions of dollars into developing an innovative car of the future, which will be a completely autonomous vehicle operating on autopilot. The development is based on the car’s futuristic concept, which was presented in several exhibition rooms in 2015. The concept was named Mercedes-Benz F 015.
From the beginning, the automotive industry is one that has operated on the legislative level, so it is well known that the driver must sit in the front seat of his car, with hands on the steering wheel. For example, according to most of the laws in western civilized countries, during the ride, the driver should always have both of their hands upon the steering wheel, except his movements change only to shift gears. But with the advent of autonomous vehicles, all of these so called rules of the road, will soon change. For example, with this new development, a designated driver may legally jump into the back seat and take a nap as the car is moving, never having to intervene in the vehicle’s auto-piloted driving. In addition, the driver could sit in the passenger seat now, without even touching the steering wheel, as keeps reading the newspaper while finishing his breakfast.
Talk to anyone in 2015 about the next big thing and there wouldn’t be much debate. Google Glass was a continual feature in both news and entertainment. People were fascinated by the idea of these technologically powered glasses. It seemed like the future was here. The glasses weren’t just some idea out of science fiction. They were actual prototypes which could be seen on the faces of testers. And just as fast as they appeared they were gone. Most people assumed that Google had abandoned the whole concept of Google Glass.
However, it appears that Google Glass is back in a big way. Google recently revealed the next iteration of their Glass technology. The new product is known as Glass Enterprise Edition. One of the most interesting things about the announcement is how much more clear the product’s vision is. One might easily mistake that statement to be a reference to camera resolution. However, the most important thing about the new version of Glass is the target market. The original Google Glass was being marketed as the next big thing for every single person on the planet. And to be sure, it might still have a worldwide market as it develops over time. The new version of Glass is targeted for specific uses though.
The professional market took to the original Google Glass designs far more naturally than the general public did. Most people using Glass tended to play around with it a lot. And to be sure, there’s nothing wrong with having a bit of fun with technology. Google noticed that people using the glasses in professional settings were getting a lot more use out of Glass. There wasn’t much need to search out tasks to fit into the device’s capabilities.
Professionals quickly noted just how useful it could be to have data related to their job constantly at hand. In fact, some people even noted that it was able to rekindle the love they had for their jobs. Google’s focus is probably going to keep Glass under the radar for the vast majority of people. But those professionals who are using it will probably fall in love with the device.
Anyone that enjoys technology for all that it brings to the table would find their time well spent visiting The Verge to take a look at their article discussing the release of one of the latest devices by Lenovo. This is great news for anyone that likes to have color-matched devices in their bag. If you owe all of your technology in red, it can be hard to settle for something in a basic color such as black. Until recently, this is something that you simply had to accept if you decided to take a look at the Yoga Book. However, this is now a problem that has been resolved thanks to new color choices being released onto the market. If the release of the product RED iPhone showed us anything, it is that people love things which enable them to stand out from the crowd. A brightly colored iPhone is a simple way to show the people around you that your device is the latest offering in a product line. It allows you to display to the world that you have invested in the latest and greatest that a company has to offer. It can often be difficult to stand out in a crowd of people that likely have the same device as you, but bright colors help to ensure that you do not have to blend in any longer. The Lenovo Yoga Book being available in a new red finish means that you would have the possibility of being able to garner attention by simply pulling this device out of your bag at a local coffee shop.
The Yoga Book is a combination device that attempts to provide a large amount of utility to the user, it offers all of the functions that come with a traditional tablet computer. However, you can easily use it in a different mode when taking notes. It comes with a stylus pen that enables you to take notes by hand during a meeting or when in the classroom. Additionally, the tablet has tent mode for viewing at any angle and this gives it many potential uses for the average user.
The Internet of Things is revolutionizing the way things are getting done. Today, the communication between objects and people employs the use of Bluetooth beacon technology.
This type of technology bears good fruits for the airline industry. First, the technology increases the safety of the airlines. Today, all the Boeing 787s are inter-connected. Real data can continually get collected, and the maintenance automatically tracked. Beacons continuously monitor the status of the relevant instruments in the plane. Therefore, enhancing safety by detecting faults earlier.
With the help of The Internet of Things, the customer service is becoming exceptional. Most airlines issue tickets online and assign seats 24hrs before the flight. The system chooses the sitting arrangement according to customer preferences before automation. The beacons, with the passengers’ permission, gets used to assist in direction. For instance, if one gets lost, a tag through an app advises the client. Additionally, the airlines have developed seat sensors used in monitoring the passengers’ enjoyment. In the case of uneasiness, the cabin crews make the required corrections.
The technology also finds usage in the handling of the customers’ luggage. Finally, it’s employed in monitoring the fuel efficiency.

From the day you were born, you were probably told to get a job, any joy, keep that job, and love that job, no matter what it was. It was probably instilled in you and because of this, you might have played it safe. You took the job that offered you security as opposed to happiness. As the old adage goes, you can’t put a price tag on happiness. It either exists for you or it doesn’t. When it does exist, there is no better feeling in the world than having genuine happiness. People can tell when you are unhappy or something isn’t right. They have been around you long enough to know you and truly understand you. Because of this, when they see you happy, they are happy for you.

When you love your job, you are never working a day in your life because it doesn’t feel like a job. You can spend time with your family, go on vacation, but you can still know that your business is being taken care of with this product.
Businesses are always looking for ways to reach out to their customers and keep them coming back regularly to buy products and services, and recommend those products and services to friends. Having the right marketing techniques to do that make all the difference, and customers like marketing that’s shows them all the bells and whistles, but marketing that’s not intrusive or annoying to them. That’s where Talk Fusion comes in, a company that provides marketing platforms through video solutions through email, newsletters, live meeting, and chat programs. Talk Fusion’s solutions are simple to sign up for and are easily integrated into email platforms and can be used across any device.
Talk Fusion was founded by Bob Reina, a man who has had a lot of fresh ideas and perspectives on how to make marketing easier for businesses. He’s been in the direct selling business for quite some time, but he founded Talk Fusion out of a purely recreational endeavor. Reina was on vacation one time when he took some short videos and wanted to send them back to his family through an email service, but could not do so because the files were too large to attach. He decided to work on a video email solution that could have a video feature built right into the email message without making it too bulky to store, and when that was completed he had created his own company, Talk Fusion.
Reina not only is a successful businessman, but a family man and a man active in his community. He has helped out local law enforcement agencies, non-profit health awareness groups, and youth sports. But probably his greatest passion is animal shelter and rescue groups and providing abandoned pets with loving, caring homes.
Mr. Shaygan Kheradpir has recently been named the chief executive officer of Coriant, which is a solution provider that makes sure their solutions are considered innovative, in turn offering something that nearly no other companies can offer. Mr. Kheradpir was named to this high-ranking position because the executives at Coriant knew that they needed someone who already has extensive experience with technology and anything to do with it.
Mr. Kheradpir is a perfect fit for the company because after graduating college, the only types of companies he has been associated with have been those dealing with technology and creating and implementing new technological developments. Many people are not able to do their job as well as Mr. Shaygan Kheradpir because he earned three college degree from Cornell University, one of the most prestigious universities in the world that few people are actually accepted into.
Mr. Shaygan Kheradpir decided that he wanted to go to school in the United States after growing up in Iran, where there were not many good options for secondary education. Mr. Kheradpir made the most of his time at Cornell University and earned a doctorate’s degree in electrical engineering, which has set up Mr. Kheradpir with a great career. Not many people are able to go to Cornell, let alone earn a doctorate degree there.
Mr. Pat DiPietro is going to be stepping up to vice chairman at Coriant, and wanted Mr. Shaygan Kheradpir to work for his company because of the experience he had in school and in working for companies similar to Coriant.
Shaygan Kheradpir is expected to help grow Coriant into using 4G and 5G networks because these are going to be used by pretty much all companies and phone users in the future, so it is very much important for Mr. Shaygan Kheradpir to help Coriant grow now.
One of the tasks that Mr. Shaygan Kheradpir is expected to take on is creating a multi-terabit metro network. This is a very large network and will be very important for the success of the innovative networking solutions provider known as Coriant.
