Denver, CO (PRWEB) December 18, 2013
Two of America’s premier business innovators, Dirty Jobs creator and host Mike Rowe, and bestselling author and Consumer Electronics Association's President & CEO Gary Shapiro, sound off on jobs, new technology and growth areas in the Winter 2013 issue of Innovation & Technology Today.
The quarterly magazine is on sale at newsstands nationwide. It is also available digitally on iTunes, Zinio and a special discounted subscription directly from the publisher, Innovative Properties Worldwide.
During an exclusive interview with I & T Today publisher Charles Warner, Rowe sounded a clarion call: there are 3 million unfilled skill jobs in a United States dealing with millions of unemployed workers. "I don’t think the skills gap is a problem; I think it’s a symptom of what we value," Rowe says. "Somewhere along the way, we’ve stopped valuing hard work and skilled labor.
"For people willing to learn a useful skill and work hard, opportunities are everywhere," he added.
Shapiro, head of the Consumer Electronics Show, America’s premier electronics trade show, sees new technologies as a growth opportunity. "The first big innovation is the Internet of Things, or connected objects that will help us lead more integrated lives," he says in I&T Today. "Also, we’re fast approaching an era where cars drive us, not the other way around. At the 2014 CES, nine of the top 10 car makers will be on hand showcasing the latest in automotive technology."
Rowe and Shapiro head up an Innovation & Technology Today issue that focuses on new frontiers in innovation and business growth. Among the highlights of the 128-page winter issue:
The winter issue of Innovation & Technology Today also features edgy departments and columns that include credit cards where customers set their own rewards; how the iPad Air is revolutionizing tablets; Apple’s new "Spaceship" campus; the fight between devices and studies in education; cresting social media trends; smart home irrigation; and technology that renders mobile and wearable devices waterproof.
In addition, there is an expanded New Products section and Gift Guide for the winter issue.
