Cisco CES 2011 Spotlight: Cisco ūmi at the Intel Booth

Where can you find the coolest gadget trend at CES 2011? Cisco ūmi, high definition video calling on your HD Television, at the Intel Booth! AND imagine the performance with Intel Inside®.

The Intel® media processor enables high quality A/V with sharper images, deep color, and exceptional video performance and what better way than to call our fabulous magician, Jeff, who is located in Los Angeles, CA.

We had crowds of people stopping by to watch Jeff’s interactive magic tricks and I can assure you that everyone was blown away (including me). Many people thought they were watching a video of Jeff until he pointed out what they were wearing and was able to read their name from their exhibitor’s pass over 300 miles away.

Santa’s Supply Chain – Get Something NEW and EXCITING!

December 22, 2010 at 12:20 pm PST

I was thinking about all the supply chain agility issues Santa would have this year – probably the same every year. Like the fact that he has to deliver to hundreds of millions of folks on one particular day of the year.

He’s been doing this for hundreds of years with only one workshop -- not located anywhere near any major distribution routes and with a small but obviously highly productive workforce.
