Within the technology sector, numerous organisations find it difficult to deliver effective and disciplined data science programs. Despite providing a promising solution, many pilots often fail to evolve into real, actionable results. A successful data science program requires four key components: skills, data, technology and direction. As well as this, startups need to bring on board experienced staff and balance this with junior hires, whilst also creating the perfect environment for your team to thrive.

Once upon a time, Steve Jobs drew quadrants on a slide and, if you wanted a new notebook rather than desktop, all you had to decide between was consumer and pro, for a brief time, between MacBook and MacBook Pro. Then he pulled a MacBook Air out of a manilla envelope and things got — and stayed — more complicated. Today, with an old Air and new, a 12-inch and several levels of Pro, it can seem downright confusing. But it doesn't have to be. The New Grid The old grid is gone. The old grid is dead. But I'd argue there's a new, almost as simple grid that's taken its place and can help you whittle down to your ideal MacBook pretty quick. If you just want a MacBook you can take pretty much anywhere and do pretty much anything with, then you've got the new baseline, the new MacBook Air. If you absolutely have to have a MacBook but just can't or won't pay over $1000 for it, you have the old Air still in the lineup. If maximum portability is more important to you and you're … [Read more...] about MacBook vs. Air vs. Pro: This is the one you should buy!

It seems as if just about every gaming company is releasing collections of their classic titles these days. Sometimes they come in their own bespoke boxes that are designed to look like the consoles that they were originally released on and sometimes they come in the form of a standalone collection.

The problem I've experienced with many of these collections is with volume. Many companies have released collections that feel more like a cash grab than a gift to their longtime fans, with many games that might not worth be playing or that just aren't worth the money you paid for it. Fortunately, when Sega … [Read more...] about Should you buy Sega Genesis Classics for Nintendo Switch?
December 11, 2013: A Chinese labor rights group calls on Apple to investigate the deaths of several workers at a Shanghai factory run by iPhone manufacturer Pegatron. AdvertisementPoor working conditions inside Chinese factories came to light after Apple started its meteoric rise in the 2000s. Apple is far from the only tech company to have its products made in China. However, Cupertino’s high visibility, and propensity for casting itself as a “force for good” in tech, means the company is often singled out in this area. Steve Jobs made things worse with comments that were sometimes construed as uncaring, such as telling interviewers that the factories were actually “pretty nice.” no evidence of any link to working conditions there, we realize that is of little comfort to the families who have lost their loved ones. Apple has a long-standing commitment to providing a safe and healthy workplace for every worker in our supply chain, and we have a team … [Read more...] about Today in Apple history: iPhone factory deaths spark investigation
