In the guest chair:
Matt Anthony, Vice President of Marketing for Pindrop Security joined me to talk about their fraud-busting audio technology. It’s technology that seems like it comes right out of crime show on TV, but has actually been fictional up until now. With Pindrop Security, banks, for example, can determine where a call is originating from by the sounds on the call. So they can tell if it’s really me or some dude in a criminal call center in west Africa somewhere. And if it is the dude, they won’t give him my money! Very cool.
In the headlines:
- Marietta, GA based Value Lighting Inc. is being bought for $35.6 million by Revolution Technologies, Inc.
- The stock may be down, but the hiring is still on at King Digital (the makers of Candy Crush) so perhaps they do have something up their sleeve after all.
- Is Twitter the next Myspace? The numbers are not looking good.
- And… wanna know what the happiest jobs in America are? We shared the list. And here’s a hint – it’s very apropos for Tech Tuesday!
