Surprising Shift to Mobile Shopping Will Improve Holiday Sales

Work is grinding to a halt around the office as everyone does their holiday shopping. Not on their computers because IT can track where people are surfing (not that they do) but with their BYODs (bring your own device). They can shop in the bathroom, boring meetings, while someone else drives home. It's going to be Thanksgiving eating/shopping at all the same time. Every retailer (WW) wants to be 1st in your pocket. Can't wait ultil next year's Labor Day BBQ/black friday. Of course then they'll just go into your mobile device, tell you what you purchased (and or whom) and make their mobile withdrawal. In the meantime I'm watching a show on our 4K UHD TV, daughter's iPad, wife's iPhone...all on the couch.

Report: Facebook at Work Set to Do the Business Like LinkedIn

Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg is known for his signature tee-shirts -- but he could be after the suit-and-tie crowd. For most of us, using Facebook at work means scrolling through the pictures of your friend's birthday party and getting in a couple of rounds of Farmville when you're meant to be working on the Henderson presentation. Facebook at Work would keep your drunken updates and embarrassing selfies away from your colleagues and professional contacts. But the world's biggest social network reportedly wants to make things more professional, taking on LinkedIn with Facebook at Work. According to the Financial Times, Facebook is developing a new site that features a similar newsfeed and groups to the current friends and family-based social network, but enables you to collaborate with colleagues and keep in touch with professional contacts.
