Today, 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. Can a simple, understandable and valuable picture of technology be created. The answer is yes. It can be created when technology information is provided with the correct background and 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


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.

Legal

If you are drafting or licensing a patent your client can be better served when you have a better grasp of technology, allowing you to look forward, seeing how technology is evolving.

management

An understanding of your client’s business is at the heart of management consulting. If it is a technology based company you have to get a grip on the technology. ned can help you get that grip.

21Jun17 – Today, there is chatter suggesting Apple has not decided where to place TouchID capabilities in the iPhone 8.  If a bezel free design is used integrating TouchID into the display stack is no simple task.

15June17 – An  article that appeared in the twittersphere yesterday details the use of algorithms to find wording differences in SEC filings.  It appears to be a variant on the Efficient Market Hypothesis (EMH).  ned took a look at whether the EMH considers technology and patents.

30 May 17 – There are two bits of chatter around Apple’s semiconductor work.  First, is talk of an Apple AI chip.  Second, is talk that a veteran Qualcomm engineer was hired into the wireless group.  This is interesting because at the moment it is only the W1 chip.  It sure seems like there are more plans in the works.

12May17 – Chatter erupted around a “report” that Apple was beginning A11 production.  It was said that the A11 would be made with a 10 nm FinFET process.  The last 2 generations of A-series were made with a 16 nm process, so the move to 10 nm is no real surprise.  What will be of interest is whether the A11 has an Apple designed GPU.  As already said I suspect there was working silicon before Apple broke its GPU relationship with Imagination.

03May17 – An IEEE article on Intel’s Optane memory said the details of the memory cell are not important.  Is this correct?  The quickest way to look forward is to understand the cell.  Can it become the universal memory or are then fundamental physics limitations to the cell.  This is hard to determine with quotes from company execs.

18Apr17 – There is talk of an impending iPad Pro refresh.  If so, will we see an A10X?  Will we see and Apple GPU?
