Prepare for the Digital Health Revolution – Fortune

Posted: Thursday, April 20, 2017

That fancy smart gadget you put in your car could let hackers turn off the engine while you drive – TechCrunch

Posted: Thursday, April 20, 2017

More and more devices, from smart dash cams to head-up displays to Bluetooth-enabled diagnostics dongles, are looking to tap your car’s built-in diagnostic (or OBD-II) port for power and data. The problem: this port… really wasn’t built to be used like that. Primarily designed to be tapped occasionally to better explain that oh-so-vague “Check Engine” light, it certainly wasn’t built to be connected to an always-attached device blasting out all…

What defines ‘digital culture’ and how to achieve it – Marketing Week

Posted: Thursday, April 20, 2017

The topic of ‘digital’ culture is currently en vogue. As more companies are formalising their digital-led transformations, they want to know how to ensure that change sticks.
