January 6, 2015 § 1 Comment
We discuss the trends and issues we observed during the weeks of December 22, 2014 – January 4, 2015. We discuss three trends that we observed as we flipped resources into our Flipboard magazine (http://bit.ly/trendsandissues). The trends are a number of resources on top tools and trends for 2014 and predictions for 2015, virtual reality and augmented reality devices aimed at the consumer market, and news and predictions about what will be available at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show .
We have four recommended readings for the week.
