The Killing IT Podcast

IT authors and entrepreneurs Ryan Morris, Karl Palachuk, and Dave Sobel provide commentary on the changing world of technology opportunities and emerging tech.

We want to expand the discussion from the SMB IT channel to all things tech - with one eye on the future and the other on profits. Join us!

Feb 1, 2022

Topic 1: Is 2022 the Year to Embrace the Grind?

Is this your year to take on big challenges, set the cruise control, or something else? This topic was inspired by our friend TC Doyle at Channelnomics.

“Not every year or period is destined to be a transformative one. For every 1945, 1989, or 2001, there are plenty of 1913s, 1953s, and 2005s.”

Topic 2: Mark Cuban Takes on Walmart. 

Is he disrupting anything? What about basic strategy?

“The ultra-straightforward business plan of undercutting middle men and offering a proven product for a better price than anyone else seems almost quaint today, but Cuban knows what he’s doing — in a generic way, at least. “

Topic 3: Activision bought by Microsoft.

This is much more than a gamer play. Does this give us a peek into the future of edge computing and next-level technologies that coordinate operations across the internet?

We have some opinions.
