Tablet Sales Decline for the First Time Since iPad Introduction

Tablet Sales Decline for the First Time Since iPad Introduction

TheStreet (May 29, 2014) — Tablet computers are selling slower for the first time since Apple introduced the iPad four years ago, although to be fair, consumers still love them. Market intelligence firm IDC expects 245 million tablets to fly off the shelves in 2014. But, it was slow going into the first three months of the year. Shipments of new tablets fell 5% to just a little over 56 million units. Apple is the most popular tablet manufacturer in world with about a 20% market share, but Apple's shipments during the first quarter slid more than 16% to 16 million units. Some of the change can be attributed to users holding on to the devices longer, as many don't feel the need to replace what they already have and if they do upgrade, they give the older model to a family member or a friend, which makes them less likely to buy another one. Smartphone screens are also getting bigger and phablets are eating away at tablet's market share. Video provided by TheStreet

Wearable Technology Is Going To The Dogs With Voyce

Wearable Technology Is Going To The Dogs With Voyce

TheStreet (June 25, 2014) — Wearable technology has gone to the dogs. No, really, Voyce has designed a wearable device for dogs that measures a range of key vital signs like heart rate and respiratory rate. The device also tracks the dog's sleeping patterns and activity levels. Voyce's online tool that displays the data also provides a library of information if you have questions about your dog's vital signs. The collar is lightweight and not much heavier or bigger than a normal collar. Unfortunately, it doesn't say what your dog is thinking, but our guess is that he just wants another treat or go for a walk. Video provided by TheStreet
