Episode 15: Trends for the Weeks of May 12-June 1 – Data Security, VR/AR Wearables, and Internet Trends 2014
June 4, 2014 § 1 Comment
We discuss the trends and issues we observed during the weeks of May 12-June 2, 2014. We discuss three trends we observed as we flipped resources into our Flipboard magazine (http://bit.ly/trendsandissues). The trends we discussed are an increase in reporting about data security of personal information–particularly related to wearables; VR/AR wearables are becoming more prevalent–competitors to Google Glass and Oculus Rift are emerging; and the slowing Internet user growth as described in Mary Meeker’s report about Internet Trends 2014.
We have two readings for this week.
