INFORMATION IS VERY EASY TO OBTAIN BUT VERY DIFFICULT TO MANAGE.


It is difficult to manage the volume of information. It is difficult to manage the quality of information. It is difficult to manage the fragmented flow of information.

This all stems from the nature of the internet.  It is societies main information resource and it is a venue where anyone can post anything.  Pretty much everyone is posting for clicks and everything can be found by a search engine whether good, bad or ugly.

The paradigm of free information is broken.  At the end of the day information is losing its value.

This is where we enter the picture.  ned, maude, todd & rod inc. or “ned” does the digging, reading, deciphering and managing of information.  We enjoy it.  Our information is more valuable to our clients because a set of trained eyes has already taken a look.

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. This component often leads popular sources of information to resort to jargon and gee-whiz, which in turn masks any value in the original bit of information. However, a simple picture of technology does have value and is understandable. Value and understandability result from placing the original bit of information with background and in context. ned has developed a process and publications to deliver such a stream of information to our clients.

THE FLAGSHIP ned 1.0 PUBLICATION IS DIRECTED TOWARDS THREE PRIMARY MARKETS


Financial

Whether it is “ball parking” a technology, seeing who or what else is in the eco-system, or looking in depth at what differentiates a technology, ned goes beyond the corporate pitch.

17Jun16 – Life dropped US7,232,388 into our lap.  After a quick skimming of the Claims and Figures it seems the bat is hollow.  That said it was very light and the kids were hitting everything into the outfield in warm-up.  It was too bad they could not use it in the game.

06Jun16 – There were some interesting rumors late last week around a standalone Apple 5K display that has its own GPU.  It seems premature, but it would be wild if it were and Apple designed part.  Such a display may also herald in a new Mac Pro, that was last update in December 2012.

24May16 – There is chatter today around US9,350,068 that issued to Apple.  A first look at the chatter and the actual patent suggests one needs to appreciate the difference between embodiments and inventive subject matter.

17May16 - IBM issued a Press Release around their PCM development today.  If anyone actually cracks the “universal memory” nut it will truly be a big thing.

02May16 – We were speaking with someone in the hydro/ power generation industry recently.  They commented that storage will be an important aspect of the grid going forward.
