Back On Deck…

Been out of the blog for a week or so. Preoccupied by a ton of exciting work. We announced a new CFO yesterday and are gearing for D next week.

Jawbone is out with a new range of unbelievable headsets. I’ve been a big jawbone fan for ages. These are simply gorgeous. Love the touches like the leather ear-hook. They also work better than any headset I’ve ever used.

And I just ordered one of these. This will remove the perpetual battle to prioritize the NetFlix cue… Roku looks brilliant…

We talk a lot about The Connected Era here at Dell. Nortel is out with a survey on the Hyper Connected. Looks interesting. Big takeaway here is that while we engage as members of the hyper-connected, the rest of the US is largely passive. Thanks to Steve for the pointer.

All of this data is consistent with what Charlene Li and Josh Bernoff talk about extensively in their new book, Groundswell. If you play with Forrester’s Technographic profile tool, you can zero in on just how wide the divide is within your target audience. They peg 52% of the US online population as largely passive.

    The Roku does look interesting. I’m going to take a look.
