Netflix courts Cable. Roku, Apple TV Should do the Same?

Subscribe: iTunes | RSS Monday was a long but productive day. At Midnight, we launched the TPN at CES crowdfund – a crowdfund project for our trip out to CES. I talk about why we need it. Last night on TWIGG.TV we talked with Kathi Browne about Google Glass and Healthcare. It was a great hour worth of content about what the medical profession is planning for Glass.

iPads Invade City Hall

Several cities in my part of the world are buying iPads for city council members. The primary impetus seems to be saving the cost of paper. The Peninsula Daily Press reviews some of the calculations.

Buying them for five WIlliamsburg council members is a one-time cost of $3,000, so the computers should pay for themselves in 18 months. The Hampton (Va.) City Council anticipates...
