Episode Description

The Internet of Things marks a major change in the global Internet economy. From current household giants, to startups specializing in home automation to large Silicon Valley based tech companies, they are all poised for a huge battle over this new consumer space estimated to be worth $2.5 billion by 2020: Smart Things, the specialist Internet of Things company which has a great platform to connect everything in your home rather than just one-off products, is on the march; Cisco CEO, John Chambers, believes that the rapid pace of change in technology is going to create a blood bath among both the major tech companies and almost every other company on the planet. Of the top five tech companies, possibly only two will survive; Mobile now makes up 12% all e-commerce sales. We also discuss whether people are more productive at some times of the day than others. Not all hours are created equal. Some hours produce more net value than others. You need to rank your activities over the course of the week into three categories: High Value, Low Value and No Value. When you are planning to start your own business, should you begin now when we are coming out of a recession or should you wait until the economy picks up before you leave your job and give it a go? We also have our extremely popular email segment and an excellent interview.
