Three Ways Retailers Could Evolve to Avoid Obsolescence

By Heather L. Sidorowicz | January 19, 2017

Last week I brought my 10-year-old daughter to the largest mall in our area. Like most malls, JCPenney, Macy’s, and Lord & Taylor anchor the concrete beast. Sears just announced this location is one of the stores they will be closing. What shocked me, however, was the amount of empty storefronts that once held retailers I’ve known since my childhood.

Deepwater Horizon Ultra HD-Blu-ray Review

By John Sciacca | January 17, 2017

My Hybrid Approach for Streamlined Programming

By Todd Anthony Puma | January 12, 2017

Sometimes we do things how we always have, even if we know that there is an easier way.

By Heather L. Sidorowicz | January 4, 2017

If you have never been to CES, it truly is an event like no other.

A friend of mine was recently job-hunting, and was disappointed when he had a great interview with a company, but then they went radio-silent. My friend made two misjudgments.
