Innovation Is Not Dead, Just Different 5.2.2013 Forbes.com: Personal Finance News
If the cover of The Economist is any indication of public sentiment – and it often is – many are speculating that innovation is dead. Two separate articles – “Has the ideas machine broken down?” and “The great innovation debate” – suggest doom and gloom. The cover “Will we ever invent anything useful again?” suggests the hope we placed on technology was misguided and that in fact, we have not produced anything as useful as a toilet in decades.
World War III Is Already Here - And We're Losing 5.2.2013 ReadWriteWeb
Every day the Pentagon is attacked 3 million times. They’ve infiltrated our banks. They’ve ransacked our technology industry. They’ve breached the networks of the Chamber of Commerce. They’ve read our email by taking down one of America’s pre-eminent technology companies, Google. It’s already World War III, people. And all we do is smile at the enemy. Last Wednesday, The New York Times announced that its computers had been hacked. That passwords had been stolen. That its private networks had been traversed with impunity by a bunch of brazen hackers. We’re not talking Anonymous here nor a bunch of ethical hackers . No we’re at war with China. To paraphrase on old newspaper joke, “what’s black and white and red all over?” The Chinese Red Army, that’s who. How do we know that? As William Gibson might bark, “ Pattern Recognition !” Computer security experts consulting with The New York Times identified the malware “as a specific strain associated with computer attacks originating in China.” ...

George Osborne: hedging his bets | Editorial 5.2.2013 Guardian: Comment is Free
The chancellor wants to eat his cake and have it when it comes to banking reform George Osborne said on Monday that his finance services bill should prevent another banking crisis. He wants parliament to vote for new regulatory reforms but he refuses to split the deal-making businesses that caused the 2008 crash from their core high street operations. The chancellor wants more competition on the high street but has rejected calls for the big four retail banks to be broken up. And he promises to "change the whole culture and ethics of the business", while insisting at the same time that London retain its reputation for innovation and "No 1 spot as the home of global financial services" – with all this entails for the sale of exotic and possibly toxic financial products in years to come. Is it possible or responsible to have it both ways? It is easy to see why Mr Osborne hopes so. He wants to protect the City and get the country working as it was before the crash – with finance and property at ...

9 Traits of Companies That Beat the Odds 4.2.2013 Inc
What distinguishes perennially great companies from the pack? Innovative business strategies that work over the long haul. Companies usually start out with nobel intent: An idea, a product, or a culture that its founders hope will be different--the one that stands out among the many. They hope to be the kind of company that others seek to emulate and the most talented people wants to work for. And while every entrepreneur and business owner knows how important it is to focus on the job at hand, to take one step at a time, somewhere in the back of their minds, they can envision their venture becoming one of the great ones that stands the test of time. Unfortunately, it doesn't usually turn out that way. What seem like brilliant concepts just don't pan out. Even viral successes often fizzle out in time. The truth is that markets are brutally competitive. We simply can't all win. And we certainly can't all be great. Which begs that question: What distinguishes the few companies that make it ...

Difference Between Brute Force and Strategic Growth 4.2.2013 Inc
As your company grows it may be necessary to move away from your brute force approach to a more calculated plan. Entrepreneurs are often described as "idea people" who are constantly building new things. But that's not how we view ourselves, even though we're considered entrepreneurs. We tend to think of ourselves as business builders rather than visionaries. Building a business takes structure and execution, not new innovative ideas. In fact, we believe innovation comes from a disciplined approach to customer insights, not idea generation. In a recent column , we discussed how leadership styles must adapt to sustain growth as a company gets larger. The transition involves moving from brute-force leadership to visionary and operational leadership. Every small company needs a motivated and charismatic entrepreneur, or two, who can take personal responsibility for building the company. This individual grabs the organization by the neck and forces it to grow. They have a "win or die" mindset. ...
France Won’t Get LTE On The iPhone Before The End Of 2013 As The ARCEP Fails To Make A Decision 4.2.2013 TechCrunch

The agency for telecommunications ARCEP has just announced that it would meet with the four French telcos to know if and when it should refarm Bouygues Telecom's 1,800MHz band to bring LTE to the iPhone 5.

Hello, Middle America. The SBA Wants to Get You Funded. 4.2.2013 Inc
Some 70% of start-up capital goes to just three coastal states. The SBA's chief says she wants to even the balance, and she has the programs to do it. I recently had the opportunity to participate in Inc.'s first-ever Hire Power Awards event in Washington, D.C. The event was a testament to the power of American entrepreneurship and the role that it plays in driving job creation and innovation in a wide array of industries. It also highlighted the importance of working together to expand our nation's entrepreneurial infrastructure to create the next generation of Hire Power companies. One of the major challenges we face today is that promising new businesses in rural and industrial communities are struggling to get the capital, investment and counseling they need to grow. For example, today nearly 70 percent of venture capital financing goes to just three states: California, Massachusetts and New York. We need to change that. We need a more inclusive vision of entrepreneurship that expands ...
