The Internet Of Things

Posted by Marketing on May 9, 2015

Riptide Software develops solutions using the Internet Of Things (IoT).  IoT means all of our devices are talking to one another. Everything we use is connected, using embedded sensors, and are able to identify themselves to one another. Our phones are smart enough to know when we’re heading home, and can tell our thermostats at our houses to start adjusting the temperature to our preferred setting.

As each of these areas grow and change, it is up to the successful business to maintain that same pace, or forever be lost in the cold obscurity of failure.

Honest Feedback from a Google Glass Explorer

Posted by Marketing on June 16, 2014

Riptide was part of the Explorer Beta program and if I had published this feedback before, it would have been for other Explorers, really. Now that Google has released, my honest feedback from my personal Beta thoughts are below. Let me say first to caveat my frank criticism, I think Google Glass is an incredibly cool technology and device. I am grateful for the work that got it to the place where we all can get involved. Also, I am certain that I understand the third wall, I can suspend my disbelief, and I can be on the other side of my own temporal provincialism. Anthropologically, I can understand the context of me as part of an older generation in 2014. Here at Riptide, one of our developers was asked to participate—as many are. I was the fourth of my colleagues to reset the factory settings, put them on, and make them “my glass.”
