It’s late July which means back to school shopping and summer vacation. Whenever I return from a few days off it always feels like I’ve been gone for a month. After I catch up on work there is always a stack of new product launches, a list of acquisitions and an inbox full of thought provoking articles to review.

Dig in and enjoy your vacation.

As a result of these two trends, and according to research from Gartner, there will be 20 billion connected items by 2020, up from 8.4 billion in 2017. But what are the implications of this for brands?
One of those brands is HP. The company is an Amazon fan: Its global head of media, Dan Salzman, said that Amazon is now the third-biggest media partner behind Facebook and Google. The brand finds the platform most helpful when it comes to what Salzman calls “lower funnel activities.
