Should We Be Worried About Augmented Reality?

AR

In fact, many of today’s tech initiatives are already using it to advance innovations like industrial machinery and electronics. And that doesn’t even include this innovation’s boundary-pushing industry benefits! Despite all its potential positives, however, AR still has serious drawbacks. In addition to unforeseen limitations like government regulation, a lack of investment, or slow innovation cycles, organizations that lack strategic resources or deployment expertise routinely encounter challenges. Let’s explore four primary enterprise pitfalls in detail: Protecting Identity and Property Before Pokémon GO was released, few people knew AR even existed—and even fewer understood what it was or what it could do to help employees at work.[tweet] Before Pokémon GO was released, few people knew AR even existed—and even fewer understood what it was or what it could do…

Unlike past conversations, however, the latest merger talks—codenamed ‘Project Lakes’—could finally result in a different outcome. After failing to reach an agreement just months ago, both organizations appear to have a renewed interest in making this merger work after agreeing to a $26 billion dollar deal last month. In addition to new corporate leadership and more clearly defined shareholder benefits, the inability to compete for 5G spectrum is central to what brought both organizations back to the bargaining table. While AT&T and Verizon have already made bids to acquire their own unique 5G millimeter wave frequencies, neither T-Mobile or Sprint can independently afford to do the same.
