As a 23-year cancer survivor who has benefitted from personalized medicine, Eric Dishman, general manager of Intel’s Health Strategy & Solutions Group, knows the value of health care innovation. He’s not the only one. In a new study, Intel found that respondents of all ages around the world are ready to embrace futuristic technologies like toilet sensors, swallowable health monitors, and personalized medical treatments based on genetics. There’s just one exception: robots performing surgery. Everyone is a little freaked out by that (and rightly so). advertisement advertisement Intel’s study, the Healthcare Innovation Barometer, surveyed 12,000 respondents from eight countries who represent the full range of age groups. “We had done some smaller surveys, but this one was surprising,” says Dishman. “The optimism of the role that technology was going to play was much higher than we’ve seen before, and there’s a lot more … [Read more...] about People Are Ready For Future Health Tech–But No One Wants A Robot Surgeon
Technically speaking, LG’s Chromebase isn’t very impressive. With a lower-end Intel Celeron processor, only 2GB of RAM and a spare 16GB of flash storage, the forthcoming all-in-one desktop would barely qualify for a bantamweight brawl. What it does do, however, is offer a clear direction for the Chrome OS: in its announcement of the Chromebase, LG states that they hope the desktop is well-received in “schools, hotels, and call centers, and other business settings.” advertisement LG’s Chromebase marks the second major attempt at marketing a desktop Chrome machine. The first would be Samsung’s Chromebox, first released in early 2012 and updated twice since. But no one is talking about it. Interest in the desktop has been rapidly declining since it launched, and it hasn’t gained nearly as much traction as the company’s more popular Chromebook–a consistent top-seller on Amazon. What may ultimately make the Chromebase an easier … [Read more...] about LG Made A Google Chrome-based Desktop, But Who Wants It?
It’s hard not to like Randi Zuckerberg. She smiles a lot. She looks you in the eye. And even in an artificial setting–say, sitting across a conference table surrounded by publicists and journalists with recording devices capturing her carefully chosen phrases–she manages to seem both natural and unflinchingly on point. And yet, the 30-year-old former Facebook marketing director and budding media mogul–and, it almost goes without saying, big sister of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg–has made a lot of people very angry. advertisement advertisement She’s fine with that. “Sometimes it’s better to elicit passion from people than just to elicit a lukewarm response,” she told Co.Create on a recent visit to New York to promote Start-Ups: Silicon Valley, the reality show she produced for Bravo that’s premiering on November 5. “I talk to a lot of brands about social media and I always tell brands you can’t let the … [Read more...] about Friends Are Swell.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WEIFlSBodVM advertisement advertisement A new spot for Kellogg’s Special K shows women browsing in a clothing store. But this is no ordinary retail shop–its display signs and clothing labels say things like “Feeling so disgusted at my figure at the moment #cow” and “I have a muffin top.” The shoppers are caught on hidden cameras reacting to these horrifically self-deprecating statements as a voice-over tells us about the impact of “fat talk,” and then has them talk about how the signage made them feel. The ad, from Leo Burnett and director Peyton Wilson takes a page from Dove’s empowerment playbook to tap into the emotion of self-image and try to align the brand with a solution. Last year Special K partnered with Dr. Renee Engeln and Northwestern University’s Body and Media lab on a study that found positive thinkers are more likely to succeed when managing their weight and how … [Read more...] about Hey #Fatty, Special K Wants You To Ease Up On The “Fat Talk”
