ChannelPro Weekly Podcast: Episode #053 - An AI Named Smartypants

By ChannelPro Weekly

After a quick look at the week’s top headlines, Rich shares some thoughts about his visit last week to the annual meeting of managed services co-op The 20 and Matt shares some thoughts of his own about why QWERTY keyboards are likely to remain the preferred means of getting text into computers indefinitely.

That’s followed by a visit to a venerable IBM keyboard from years gone by in Matt’s tech museum, a quick peek at a “clicky but quiet” present day keyboard from CHERRY, and a discussion of how cultivating application development skills can help channel pros strengthen margins and differentiate themselves from a sea of indistinguishable cloud resellers.

Somewhere in there, Rich suggests an absolutely brilliant new name for an artificial intelligence solution too. Trademark it fast before he does!
