The death of Smartphones and the birth of Smart systems

On January 2, Apple CEO, Tim Cook, announced a decrease in sales in the last quarter of 2018. Approximately 10 billion dollars less than expected.

This is why the digital revolution may not be so positive for all

Information has been pulverized and countless small fragments have formed a cloud that envelops the planet. “Nothing can stop an idea whose time has come”, we hear all the time. However, very few people stop to ask whether we are ready to accept that idea. Are we ready to take the big leap as individuals and as human beings into the digital world that looms on the horizon?
