Goodbye forever, Windows Vista

The end has finally come for one of the world's most hated pieces of software, Windows Vista. As of Tuesday, April 11, 2017, Microsoft will no longer be supporting Windows Vista, the company announced in a support article. Often called the worst version of Windows, Vista was released just over a decade ago in 2007, five years after Windows XP and two years before Windows 7.

Windows 7 was received with much relief from Vista users looking to switch and XP users looking for a true upgrade. Read more... More about Microsoft, Windows Vista, Windows, and Tech

Not again. Another story about a United passenger emerges—this one with handcuffs.

Yet another story about a mistreated United passenger has made the news. Geoff Fearns, president of Tripacific Capital Advisors, told the LA Times that last week—before the viral incident involving a man being dragged off a plane—that he was threatened with handcuffs for refusing to give up his $1,000 seat on a flight from Kauai to Los Angeles for "somebody more important who came at the last minute." SEE ALSO: United Airlines lost $800 million in value (but got some of it back) Fearns told the publication he was already in his seat when a United employee rushed up to him, telling him he had to get off the plane "because the flight was overfull."

Getting Started with Analytics Attribution

As much as we’d like to think that a conversion is a nice, neat and organized path from one point to another, the conversion process is often more like a twisting road map of tangents, intersections and loops that involve a whole host of customer touch-points. Analytics attribution can help you not only make sense of the path your customer took to get to you, but also help you optimize that path. Let’s take a closer look: Analytics: Skimming the Surface Google offers an excellent example of explaining why analytics alone are not enough. In this example, a hypothetical Mrs. Smith is in charge of marketing for a store that sells shoes both through a retail storefront as well as a website. Her goal is to sell more shoes to professional young women in the 18-24 age range. Her first job is to figure out how this particular group finds the shoe company’s website and storefront.

I got a chance to sit — unfortunately, I didn't get to drive or even ride in one on the streets — in the Air at the New York Auto Show and I have to say, it felt more like being in a private jet or in a first-class plane cabin than in a road vehicle.
