Why Technology and why not ERP?

A lot of times, I get questions on my interest and some are often puzzled as to my interest towards technology, especially mobile technology rather than what I practice in real life -- ERP.
The questions generally are, -- "Why don't you write about ERP"?
"What's the benefit of writing a blog about tech news when you can write about ERP and be more marketable" ?
Sometimes, I don't get questions -- "I just get looks" pretty much summing up how they feel about it.
Some have even suggested to bring down the blogger site and just start writing about ERP and be on one of those open groups on linked in.

To be honest -- I really would like to write a lot about ERP - PeopleSoft and Oracle apps, but the fact of the matter is that I have spent my entire day working on those products and at times, I would like to know how things are shaping up outside my work world. I really like to help anyone with ERP question and those who do dedicatedly, "hats off to them". I am just washed out by the end of the day to think ERP when I leave office, unless there is work and that needs to be done to meet deadline.

So till then - I will continue to write outside ERP and when something excites me -- I'll write and discuss ERP.

Oatmeal, Organic Milk, Amazon and retail, Microsoft Windows 10S - May 3rd 2017

Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert dominated the news with their monologues and they are must watch. Apple released it Quarterly results and they really look good to me :-) (Wall St disagrees, but when a company makes $50b in revenue in a quarter and $11b in profit - that's really good to me). Jokes aside, Apple is stagnant with no real new product in the pipeline and the next quarter, historically has been weak and with everyone waiting for 10th anniversary iPhone and the rumor that they won't be on sale till 2018, then it doesn't bode well for them.
Here are some interesting posts for today.

If there is one story you have to read today, read this. This is amazing and it is fun and makes you wonder on how we think and act and how our brain is wired with our core beliefs and how they shape our decision making. This is really good.

1. All eyes on iPhone Sales - iPhone 8 (4 mins)
I love reading Bob Lefetz newsletter. He has his own unique way of saying the things that he wants to say where a layman can understand it.
"Tech is all about utility, not fashion. And there’s no breakthrough coming, other than a curved screen. You needed a new phone when they went from 3G to LTE. You needed a new phone when they increased the screen size. You no longer need a new phone, especially since the carriers have stopped subsidizing the purchase, now that the true cost is evident. People drive their cars ever-longer, but analysts believe consumers are all gonna fork over a thousand bucks for a fashion statement? Not gonna happen. Otherwise, 3-D TV would have been a juggernaut and you’d be throwing away your present flat screen for one with 4k."

1. Codeine and Kids - What can go wrong?

Deep down we all knew the side effects of the painkillers and cough syrup, now the FDA has come out slinging against Codeine and Tramadol. On one hand FDA has decided to come against the painkillers, but on the other hand, it did nothing to stop pharmaceuticals to sell OTC cough syrups and drugs that do contain those chemical elements.

2. Emirates - The problem begins

This was my fear when the current administration signed the executive order to ban tablets and laptops for three middle eastern airlines. How long before the other two airlines cut down the stops in US and concentrate more in Europe and the rest of the world? What it means for passengers? More expensive flights for world travelers. The tourism industry is already hit with anxiety and a lot of travelers are definitely avoiding the hassle to come to thi…
