Sony's big CES booth is built around one product in particular: its first 4K OLED TV. Beautiful, bright (and highly anticipated), the television's slender OLED panel also doubles as a speaker, with some subwoofer support from behind. Unfortunately, t...
The consumer goods supply chain is subject to tremendous demand volatility, stemming from seasonal variations, promotional activities, the shortened life cycle of goods, and the ever-growing number of new and improved products that are being pushed into the markets. In the meantime, retailers are well aware that their ability to provide a high level of “on-shelf” product availability is crucial in establishing and maintaining a loyal customer base. To reduce their levels of stored inventory, retailers are demanding quicker replenishment of goods, shorter turnaround times, reduced minimum quantities, and more frequent shipping options. All of this leads to a greater emphasis on the importance of flexibility and reliability in the transportation operations sector.
This course is motivated by the practical challenges inherent in the transportation planning that’s required by today’s consumer goods industry. By addressing three key areas, the course will guide the learner through the essential elements involved in planning and managing a systematic approach to transportation operations. These key areas include:planning and managing transportation operations to meet the needs of the consumer goods sector, through improved supply chain performance reducing costs through the use of outsourced transportation networks identifying, implementing, and managing the measures necessary to increase the efficiency of outsourced transportation networks
After completing this course, you will be capable of examining, planning, and managing the transportation operations required by the consumer goods industry. You will know how to evaluate external factors and trends that impact supply chains, how to assess the transportation costs related to consumer goods networks, and how to analyse the freight rates of outsourced networks.

Rumors of a "Jet White" iPhone 7 refuse to die. Stirring up the pot on Thursday was Apple's own Beats brand, which posted to the web a photo that appears to reveal a glossy white version of this year's flagship iPhone.
Firefox is of course one of the leading browsers in the desktop space and Mozilla’s service has been available on Google’s Android for a long time. Apple’s iOS counterparts are different however and only recently has the browser been in beta for. After some wrangling with Apple, Mozilla has now launched the full Firefox app for iOS.
Mozilla has been locked from building Firefox for iOS because the company uses its own Gecko engine while Apple demands browser providers use its WebKit engine. Clearly, rather than missing out on iOS and its millions of users, Mozilla decided to cave in and release Firefox on WebKit.
The browser is available in the App Store now.
You can choose to ignore it, but the move to put iOS inside healthcare is gathering so much momentum it’s a triumph of ignorance over good sense to do so.
With over seven million electronic healthcare records (EHR) in its iOS-compatible medical platform, drchrono illustrates the growing status of iOS-based solutions in modern healthcare. I spoke with COO and co-founder, Daniel Kivatinos.

Do you speak dotdot? I don't, at least not yet.
ZigBee has announced the development of a 'universal language for the IoT' which it's calling dotdot, and this week at CES the alliance has been showcasing the first prototypes of products speaking it.
The examples on display are based on the network protocol Thread yet use ZigBee's dotdot language to communicate – proving the language is not restricted to ZigBee products. At the booth you will find dotdot prototypes from various vendors, including thermostats, lights, window blinds and sensors.
More than 400 companies now build ZigBee devices and dotdot is based on the ZCL (ZigBee Cluster Library) which existing products use. The alliance says this makes the language more capable than other application layers.
While dotdot can speak with Thread devices – which use the same underlying IEEE 802.15.4 radio technology – ZigBee isn't settling with this and hopes to extend support to other IP-based networks.
“dotdot represents the next chapter in the ZigBee alliance’s continued commitment to create and evolve open standards for the smart networks in our homes, businesses and neighborhoods,” said Tobin Richardson, ZigBee alliance President and CEO. “Recognizing the value of the evolving application layer that has been the core language of ZigBee devices for over a decade, market leaders within the alliance have come together to transform it into a universal language for the IoT.”
Eventually, dotdot could evolve into handling tasks such as device discovery around the home or workplace due to how universal IP is. Supported networks could include WiFi, Bluetooth, Ethernet and NB-IoT (Narrowband IoT).
Manufacturers have been seeking this kind of network support in order to move their products forward with confidence.
“Silicon Labs and our customers have succeeded in the IoT because of the scalability of ZigBee's interoperability technology. As customers look to grow into new markets, there has been a strong demand to use the ZigBee application layer on other networks," said Skip Ashton, VP Software at Silicon Labs, a leading provider of ZigBee, Thread, and other connectivity technologies. "And in fact, since the ZigBee alliance’s announcement of its intention to do so, we’ve seen a significant increase in adoption of ZigBee because developers now know that their investment in the large ZigBee market today will expand into new markets with dotdot. We’re excited to be participating in its development, and to support customers looking to build with ZigBee and dotdot.”
The alliance hopes to certify the first dotdot products later this year.
