Mobile industry veteran Laurie Lamberth was named a “Power Player in Mobile” by AlwaysOn, a technology media company that connects the entrepreneurial community in Silicon Valley. Laurie accepted the honor at AlwaysOn’s OnMobile conference in Redwood City, CA on October 10, 2013. AlwaysOn Power Players are nominated by their peers, then selected by AlwaysOn as the most influential people in the professional services sectors that support technology entrepreneurs. As AlwaysOn Founder and Editor Tony Perkins summarized it at the OnMobile conference: “These players are the Rolodex that startup CEO’s want to have.”

What is your trash saying about you? “Smart trash” — RFID-tagged items going into RFID-enabled trash bins — poses new threats to personal privacy. Explore the implications of connected trash with Laurie Lamberth in her October/November 2013 column for Connected World Magazine. Trash pulls have long been used by spies, cops and jilted lovers to uncover personal details. What if your trash stream could be mined for information, or for marketing purposes?
I recently interviewed Cisco’s Mahbubul Alam about his work running Cisco’s Internet of Things and M2M business. Alam is passionate about how the Internet of Things will revolutionize core industries and change the way we work. He should know: Alam’s team is building the fast, deterministic networks and other gear needed to transport the huge data streams fully connected industries will create. He envisions that the impact to workers will be profound, with difficult and dangerous work relegated to robotic equipment, knowledge workers will predominate in the decades ahead.
This year the Connected World Conference captures the heart of the Silicon Valley, June 10-13 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. This year’s program includes a Gadget Giveaway and M2M App Challenge, and speakers from United Parcel Service, Progressive Insurance, Hewlett Packard, at&t, T-Mobile, Sprint, and more.
CTIA 2013, the largest mobile trade show in North America, will be held in Las Vegas May 20-23. Spring CTIA’s trade show floor covers mobile from end to end.
In my latest Connected World Magazine column, I take a look at how the M2M market has evolved from an enterprise-focused, 100-million unit market to a segment that will eventually include trillions of connected devices. In the article, titled “M2M, How Do I Love Thee?” I show how market forecasts have expanded from millions, to billions, to trillions as the impact of connecting everyday objects influences the market’s expectations for growth in the M2M sector.
Showrooming. Everybody’s heard of it by now—conniving shoppers checking out a product in a retail store, then buying it online later for less. Best Buy’s 2012 stock price tumble was largely blamed on showrooming, while other retailers including Target, ToysRUs and PetSmart also felt showrooming’s effect on their bottom lines. But this emphasis on showrooming is misplaced, in my view, and I’m not alone.
