Eventually all of the above benefits will lead consumers to accept facial recognition at retail. Why? because over time individual recognition will be a standard for the workplace for security purposes. Currently in secure buildings people have passes that they carry and scan to get into the workplace. These...

Any time you have a culture of high expectations and hard work there will be people in management who drive people too hard and do not reflect the true culture of an organization. Whether they are highly driven to succeed, are insecure in their own abilities or just poor...

This is another example of a small minority putting panic into the minds of executives and leaders! I can see the meeting where people sit and discuss topics that would go away if properly ignored. How much time and money are wasted on issues that don't result in the...

My only comment is that I seek out certain cashiers at my regular grocery store because I know that I will be treated courteously, rung up accurately and my groceries will be bagged efficiently. I will wait a little longer to get this accomplished rather than get home and...

These latest demands will cause the largest manufacturers to look again at how they are doing business. Years ago all vendors went through the net cost process of doing business with Walmart and were called on the carpet by other retailers to insure a level playing field. I went...
