Last Week, This Week.. Now

Here’s our weekly serving of some of last week’s most interesting technology trends.

  • The New York Times looks at the rise of big brother in the work setting as technological advancements aide increased surveillance.
  • Fortune analyses recent research that suggests that 2014 will not be the year of wearable tech as it’s not yet socially acceptable.
  • The Wall Street Journal highlights a strategic change in the way that organisations are utilising social media; focusing on quality of audience as opposed to quantity.
  • Bloomberg notes on the increased pace with which American Millennials are shunning the high street for e-commerce convenience.
  • However, following the release of Amazon’s Fire Smartphone, Mobile Marketer reports that critics are unsure as to what the future of mobile shopping will really look like.
  • But according to Mobile Marketing Daily, online mobile use has hit new heights in terms of times spent on mobile devices.
