It’s shaping up to be an even busier fall then usual, with both Amazon Prime Day 2020 and the launch of the Xbox Series X and S happening within a month of each other. Of course, we won’t see any deals on the next-gen consoles–we doubt they’ll even be available to purchase–but there are still a lot of games and accessories that will work with the new consoles, and Prime Day is the perfect time to stock up before your Xbox Series X or S arrives. 2020 has been full of awesome deals on all things Xbox, and we expect Prime Day to be no different.

Amazon Prime Day lasts 48 hours and kicks off on Tuesday, October 13, at midnight PT / 3 AM ET. Amazon has already set some early Prime Day deals live, which consist of 4K TVs, smart home devices, and other tech gadgets. Unfortunately, you

Chinese astrology has it that 2020 is a “metal rat” year, and is associated with turbulence. Covid-19 has certainly provided a quantum of it. With a steep market dive in the first quarter, and sharp worldwide economic contraction, Asian business has had a rough ride. As star signs go, 2020 has so far lived up to its ratty astrological reputation.

The results of a survey conducted from August to September of Hong Kong-based Asia Business Council’s members, who are the chairmen and CEOs of some of Asia’s leading multi-national companies, collectively valued at nearly $3 trillion, and with some 3 million employees, offer insights against the turbulent backdrop of a year dominated by Covid-19. With a response rate of 83% (58 out of 70 members), the

In the age of COVID-19, remote work is here—and here to stay, according to Gartner. Aside from fundamentally shifting the environment in which employees and managers interact, remote work has other less obvious consequences—namely, increased vulnerability to attacks.

To assess the greatest cybersecurity threats companies are facing today, and the 10 trends they should watch out for in 2021, Getapp, the software recommendation company, talked to 83 IT security managers for its Annual Data Security Report. The report found that “limited security for remote workers is the single most common vulnerability businesses are facing today.”

What To Expect Of The iPhone

October 2, 2020 | technology | No Comments

Regarding the iPhone, the topic of the month is likely to be Apple’s 5G-ready device, which is expected to be unveiled within the next couple of weeks. But when it comes to fiscal fourth quarter results, what will really matter are the iPhone 11 and iPhone SE.

Today, as part of our countdown to earnings day, I look at how well this very important business segment might have performed in the most recent three-month period.

An uphill battle

I find it unlikely that smartphone sales in fiscal fourth quarter will deviate too much from the previous period, considering how little the COVID-19 crisis and global recession have evolved in this short period of time. Therefore, I think it helps to use fiscal third quarter as a yardstick to set fiscal fourth quarter expectations.

Last time, Apple did not quite disappoint on iPhone sales. However, the segment was the worst-performing of

Amazon has finally pulled back the curtain on Prime Day 2020. Prime Day will be a two-day event this year, taking place October 13 – 14. That’s three months past its usual spot smack dab in the middle of the summer, but if the deals are sweet, I vote to allow it. If you’re in the market for a new desktop or laptop PC or Mac, you’ll likely find a number of excellent deals come Prime Day 2020. Additionally, you’ll almost certainly see major discounts on computer accessories, including mice, keyboards, monitors, headsets, and gaming chairs.It’s also important to note that Amazon won’t likely be alone in its offerings during the two-day event. Other retailers like Walmart, Dell, Best Buy, and others will almost certainly follow Amazon’s lead and offer competing sales of their own, with discounts on PCs, laptops, and accessories. They don’t want all of your spending dollars
