Technology shouldn’t be the focus of your business. It should be the silent partner in your operations, keeping things humming along without becoming your all in all. But it’s not always that easy, is it? In fact, sometimes, it’s life-changing – and not in a good way. For example:

They bought the story (excuse the pun) hook, line and sinker.
We think their plight points to a problem we all have with not only technology, but also marketing about technology: What can you believe?
