Today, technology INFORMATION IS VERY EASY TO OBTAIN, difficult to trust and VERY DIFFICULT TO MANAGE.


The paradigm of free information is broken.  Information is losing its value.

This is where we enter the picture.  ned, maude, todd & rod inc. or “ned” digs through, reads, deciphers, comments on and manages information.  We enjoy it. We add value to information.

WHAT ABOUT TECHNOLOGY? IT ALWAYS HAS BEEN AND ALWAYS WILL BE A PART OF SOCIETY. It’s only constant is its continual evolution.


Technology adds a new dimension because, well, there is now a technical component. Here, popular sources of information often resort to jargon and gee-whiz, reducing the value of the information. A simple picture of technology that has value and is understandable can be created. How? It can be created when technology information is provided with the correct background and it is placed in context. ned has developed a process and publications to do just that. ned delivers a stream of valuable information to our clients.

THE FLAGSHIP ned 1.0 PUBLICATION IS DIRECTED TOWARDS THREE PRIMARY MARKETS

08Dec16 – Nantero and their carbon nanotube-based NRAM received an additional $21 million in funding today.

18Nov16Work on reversible fuel cells at Boeing was making the rounds.  They run a fuel cell in the reverse direction to produce hydrogen.  This is then stored and electricity is produced when needed.  In the end one has a system for energy storage.

14Nov16 – It would be interesting to see if Apple brought the T1 to the AppleTV remote.  From here, one could bring secure payments to the living room.

08Nov16 –  ned is digging deeper into the T1 chip has proven to be quite interesting.  One neat fact is the apparent ability to operate independently of the main processor, including when a device is either sleeping or off.

27Oct16 – There is plenty of chatter proclaiming that Microsoft is now leading Apple in innovation after the respective hardware events last week.  I am not going to debate the merits of touchscreens  here.  I will though say that Apple’s T1 chip sure looks interesting.  It is said to be running a modified watchOS, and runs the Touch Bar’s graphics, within the MacOS device.  This is pretty nifty and certainly suggests innovative work under the hood.

19Oct16 - It appears the Huawei 960 introduced today is following the route of increasing the number of CPU cores.  It is not exactly the approach in Apple’s A-series.
