Webinar: Building B2B vs B2C Products by Spotify Sr PM Aisha Ishak

Ever wondered what the difference is between B2B and B2C Product Management ? Enterprise Product Management has different challenges and rewards than consumer products and while you may find that consumer products are more exciting, working on an enterprise product is extremely fascinating as well. Learn the differences here. Aisha Ishak is a Senior Product Manager leading the strategy, development, and launch of innovative and customer-centric products at Spotify.   My first instinct is to say that B2B uses  jargon, and B2C aims to be friendly and human because - say it with me - People buy from humans . *

My Shoes Have Bluetooth and I Must Scream: UnderArmor's Hovr and MapMyRun

 Other potential titles included "Walking With the Enemy" and "Internet of Shoestrings".   I'm not against the concept of IoT, but the severe lack of security installed on a commercial level, the lack of education for end users, and the growing reliance on technology in our world. The people who are best at their job have hobbies away from the machine. Some of mine include exercise, running, walking - I go through sneakers quick and hard. So I got some cool shoes - Under Armor HOVR .    They're not on the site but here they are. I got them from an outlet mall, could be discontinued.   I didn't realize until I got home that they had the Bluetooth insignia both within them and on the box.  

Dartwood 2K QHD USB Webcam with Built-in Microphone

    There are few reviews about this product across the web - Target has the most, and the "company's" own site has none . Makes me think this is sold under various names. It was less expensive than the initial webcam I was looking at and easily returnable. Does the low price pay off?

I'm THAT mom who will drag your rear to the museums and you'll LIKE it ☕️ https://t.co/EnEdso0yDL pic.twitter.com/eOcniPq2IM — Jen Looper (@jenlooper) January 21, 2021     There's a lot of nonsense on my machine with "Your organization is controlling some settings." as of late.   What organization? Me ? I think it may be using the DNS settings I get from my ISP, but that shouldn't prevent me from connecting my phone to my laptop if I so chose to (I don't).  

Galaxy Buds + Review

  Earbuds have become a hot commodity. It's awesome to have them act independently of each other while still playing music. The Galaxy Buds+ is a wireless earbud that has made its name by combining features of some of the top competitors in the market at a lower price-point - To mixed results. Before I got to buying Buds, let's walk down my history of audio devices.  The Personal History of Morgan's Audio While I enjoy my Soundpeats Wired-But-Also-Technically-Wireless Earphones, I wanted earbuds for 2 reasons: They have microphones.  They won't snap in half if I charge them in my car, forget they're plugged in, put them on my ears, and attempt to exit. That's a mistake you only make once. Sennheiser Momentum On-Ears - After about a year, one ear cup began to die, and Sennheiser sent me a refurbished set. They still work, but the over ear puts pressure on your ears, which isn't fun after hours of use. I use them on occasion. There's a muffled quality on

Using Azure Web Apps to Host a Landing Site (#CloudGuruChallenge)

The video is really a Creative Agency webpage, but I followed along and repurposed it for my own ends. I got this out during the time of the #CloudResumeChallenge on LI! The parameters for the challenge are here . I found this page after I created the site. Hey, still learned something. Isn't the entire point of tech thinking outside the box and figuring stuff out anyway? Technologies used : Azure, HTML, CSS, Javascript, GitHub, Deployment Tokens, Twitter, Canva, Talking to People Resources : Tyler Potts' Creative Agency webpage with edits to make it an online portfolio - resume. Why Make a Landing Site? It's a brief site where a potential client or employer can quickly get the idea of what I do. You see it, and it's less overwhelming than a LinkedIn profile, or a blog with long posts. I had a similar site made in Webflow, and a links landing page made in Canva. Fine options, however -  - I couldn't get the Webflow elements lined up properly - An issue you'll
