Jason Hoffman, former CTO of Joyent and now Ericcson’s(s adr) director of digital strategy talks connected cars, worries about whether space-age “smart pajamas” can electrocute us, and says Amazon(s amzn) Web Services will continue to “crush” all the current IT players but could face a challenge from Google if the search giant does a few things right. Oh, and Microsoft will be number 3 while OpenStack will remain “an interesting backwater.” (He’s quoting someone else there.)
But first, Derrick Harris and I discuss IBM’s(s ibm) big, new Watson push — guess what — it’s investing 1 BILLION dollars in a new division — as well as Salesforce.com(s crm) CEO Marc Benioff’s stance on OpenStack and a bunch of other stuff.
Hosts: Barb Darrow and Derrick Harris
