Le Trois. The Three. El Tres.

Happy Wednesday!

My apologies that Tuesday’s poll didn’t show up in the email newsletter; if you want to participate, the question?

If you had to invest a portion (< 5%) of your RRSP, 401k, retirement fund, what would you buy?

A) content providers: Disney, Discovery, ViacomCBS

B) media infrastructure: Akamai, Fastly.

Let me know in the comments section what you would buy.

Here are the three articles that caught my eye!

I love you all!



P.S. Banish your negative thoughts; focus on the positive ones.


Stay at home workout

You will be drenched in sweat. Literally drenched in sweat. 60 minutes of fun: link


Printing your solar panels

You will soon be able to print them using a 2D inkjet printer (when you read the article, it’s being designed for the military. But you know the idea will be used in the consumer market): link


Swim faster. Using artificial intelligence (AI)

If I wrote that AI can help you swim faster, would you buy the product (love the heads up display in the swimming goggles)? Link



Under the category of “I’m going to whine like a child when I lose the rights to my sporting event.”

Congrats Canal Plus for threatening not to broadcast any soccer matches when the company lost the Ligue 1 rights to Amazon. It shows that you can’t keep up with tech giants. Just give up right now Canal Plus. Focus on something else with the money you’re going to save (here’s a free idea: more reality TV shows. They’re cheap to make). Or sell your company to Comcast: link

P.S. Get used to this linear and cable broadcasting industry. The tech giants have the money. And they’re willing to spend it to get people to watch their channel. If you can’t outbid them, do something else.

Author: Research King

My real name is Nick but my clients call me the Research King. Why? Because I love researching and finding information. And they’re literally amazed when I find the information for them. I love analyzing how technology influences the media and entertainment world. Because the media and entertainment industry is constantly changing. And technology is playing a big role in changing it (from CD’s to live-streaming). Finally, I love coffee, going to the gym/working out and anything to do with athletic leisure clothing (I’m a big Lululemon fan). P.S.
