MCM #346: Is inventory the new location for retailers?

One of the allures of online and mobile shopping is that there is almost always a sure guarantee the product will be in inventory. You may have to wait a day or two for it to get to your doorstep but odds are the thing you order will be delivered. Not so for traditional retail stores. There is nothing more frustrating than finding the product you want, making your way to the store only to find it isn't available at that location. Inventory is becoming an important lever in retail behind experience and price and one company, Retailigence, is making sure you get the product you want when you want it.

MCM #344: Voice is the latest thing from the 90′s making a comeback

The original killer application for mobile phones was, well, voice communications. For the first time ever, we weren't tied to a specific location to be reached. This was a revolution and a revelation for businesses and parents with teenagers. Somewhere along the line, voice has taken a backseat as the primary means of communications for the smart devices we carry today. Voice hasn't gone away, rather the function has changed dramatically. As you'll see in this episode, voice has shifted from person-to-person to person-to-computer as it tries to bridge the limitations of our small screens and big fingers as an important input mechanism.
