Susan Walsh, Sales Director for Business Productivity at Microsoft in Atlanta joined us in the studio to talk about the importance of the cloud and mobile applications for enterprise companies. She also shared her thoughts on tech companies in the press and where Microsoft fits into today’s landscape.

Melody McCloskey, CEO and Co-Founder of StyleSeat, the largest online marketplace for booking beauty and wellness services also joined us. We talked about how StyleSeat is like OpenTable for salons and spas. We also discussed the beauty industry moving towards embracing more high-tech strategies and how to bridge that gap to reach more consumers.

In the headlines:

Soapbox:

Retail shopping on Thanksgiving is not cool.  Eat turkey.  Watch football.  Have a glass of wine.  Hug your family.  Or fight with them.  Either way don’t go to the mall. And maybe encourage others to stay away too! #savethanksgiving #boycottmacys #boycottblackthursday #StopBlackThursday
