As June passes we think ‘vacation’. A tropical island is my vacation dream. My northern friends often ask how can I stand the extreme heat of the tropic. The answer to that question is also the highlight of our content this month – I adapt fast. The human body of is highly adaptable. “Our bodies, highly amenable machines that they are, can acclimatize to cold environments and warm environments, alike.” The internet of things (IOT) has been battled by the movie business longer than anyone. VCR, Netflix, Redbox and even YouTube have put the heat on the movie business. The movie business has done a great job “ADAPTING” by cutting locations, changing products and adjusting even things like length of movie and credits all to entice the customer to go to a movie. While many consultants and bloggers write about the end of brick and mortar retail, this is far from certain. I leave you with a quote to think about as you read this month’s cover stories.
