Industry News Digest: January 21, 2013

It’s that time of the week folks. Here are 5 industry news articles that are sure to start your Monday off right:

Business

“How to Turn a $50, 000 Investment Into a $250 Million Company”

Push your startups to fail as fast as possible? Really? Well yes, according to the very rich 500 Startups partner Dave McClure. Read more of his money-making tips at Business Insider and get some links to his presentations for even more golden tidbits.

Technology

“Help! I’ve got Windows 8 and I miss my Start menu”

No way, me too! If this article calls out to you as well, check out this helpful guide at Arstechnica.

“How Google and Facebook Will Make the Leap to Lightspeed”

Google and Facebook have decided the only possible way to accommodate extra traffic between servers is to travel at—yes, you read the title right—lightspeed. This all begs the question, who would win in a fight: Superman or Mark Zuckerberg?

“The Consumer Technology Trends that Will Matter Most in 2013”

The world is looking more like The Jetsons every year. VentureBeat covers the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas and shows all the latest and greatest new trends. In case you were wondering, my favourites are the game console alternatives. Ironically, my birthday only was last week. Just saying.

Freebies

“More than 100 of Quora’s all-time best answers are now available as a free, 400-page PDF book”

Who doesn’t love reading Quora? Especially during work hours. (Just kidding, that’s bad project management.) Well lucky for us, Quora has compiled their top answers into a free e-book. Follow the link above for 400 pages of Quora fun.

And that leads us to this week’s conclusion of the world through Easy Project’s eyes. If this makes you unbearably sad, you can check out last week’s top stories and come back Monday for next week’s updates.
