I just read Nick Bilton’s blog post in Bits “Disruptions: TV Makers Ignore Apps at Their Own Peril”. I know it’s now a couple of months since it was published but hey, you can’t catch every blog post every time and what he’s saying still remains spot-on.

Arrival of #Siri ignates the interest on natural language interaction #NLI
The blogosphere is awash with views on Apple’s Siri. Some of it effusive with its praise, some reveling in its supposed shortcomings — see this post from the New York Times Bits blog for example. One thing for sure, you could be forgiven for thinking that Apple’s natural language technology that powers Siri was the only game in town.

How to separate good from bad corporate gossip? Try using #NLI
Despite the advance of Twitter and Facebook, email is still the “killer” electronic communications medium particularly at work, where it long ago replaced the telephone as the preferred way for communicating between colleagues. But not all of the billions of emails handled each day by office workers are strictly work-related. According to a recent study, about 15% of the emails sent by corporate users contain information about a person or persons not among the recipients. In other words, they contain gossip.

Are consumer electronics ready to offer what the demanding baby boomers are expecting? #NLI
Since 1946, one generation has been said to remodel society as it has passed through it – the baby boom generation. This was the first generation in the western world to grow up with television and since then it has witnessed many great technological achievements such as the moon landing, the internet revolution, new mobile technology and now the launch of intelligent consumer devices such as smart-TVs and talking fridges. Steve Jobs, founder of Apple and a baby boomer himself has become a symbol of this ultra-techie generation. The question is, are consumer electronics ready to offer what these demanding boomers are expecting?

A decade of overexposure to increasingly aggressive marketing tactics has made them understand the power they wield over businesses that want their data and wary of trusting brands. Instead of engaging directly with an organization users choose to connect with friends, and even strangers, online to crowd source opinion on purchasing decisions. But surprisingly, treat them right and they are still willing to share.
