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


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.

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

03Apr17 – It is not surprising that there is plenty of chatter around Apple’s decision to leave Imagination and go their own way with GPU’s.   It is not surprising that Apple wants to control such an important component in the A-series parts.  An article by AnandTech presented some thoughts on timeline and possible performance of any new GPU.  It will be interesting to watch the story unfold.

31Mar17 – Yesterday’s coverage of US20170090134 i.e. Apple’s “Magnetic Charging and Optical Data Transfer System” patent application was sketchy at best.  Bits of the article are cut and paste from the application.  It is more important to think about the use case for combined wireless charging and data transfer.  Wi-Fi?

27Mar17 – Even more info. about Intel’s 3D XPoint-based products was released today … two variants of an HDD cache. Some thoughts on these are here.

20Mar17 – AnandTech published some further information about Intel’s 3D XPoint-based products.  we will be keen to see the memory cell once the RE houses get parts.

10Mar17 – It seems obvious, but it is useful to remember that energy is all about conversion.  One is converting energy stored in chemical bonds or in photons to another, more useful form. 

03Mar17 – On the face of it this is an interesting development.  They claim to have greatly improved on Li-ion batteries with an all solid-state battery.

21Feb17 – There was some press today around a molten silicon grid storage system.  There were some intriguing cost and capacity claims.  There are plenty of areas of technical intrigue also, including heating the silicon to ~1400 oC, minimizing heat loss and extracting the energy.
