Re: Smart speakers
Absolutely, my prefrence is also quality. However it seems like the speed of changes, evolution, competition are sevral factors that are driving this new tendency of racing for temporary fame.

Re: Smart speakers
In general, I believe there is a tendency of choosing fast and low quality rather than high quality which requires a more thoughtful approach. We can all choose what we want. I prefer quality rather than instant delivery. Fast food, fast fashion, fast content, fast rising stars are all in the same category: Low quality.

Re: Smart speakers
Very true @Susan. But these days this appears to be very common trend. No one seems to be interested in longeivity any more, but just focussed in seeing instant result though shortlived.

Re: Smart speakers
Rarely those who jump to the fame in such a skyrocket way remain relavant. They startdom fades quickly.

Re: Smart speakers
200% in agreement with you. I am a strong believer of progressive growth. That gives an opportunity for anyone to really understand what's going on and how they got to where they are. This step could bed totally missing lately.

Re: Smart speakers
I checked her out. It seems like her music content is highly sexual oriented in images, language, and body language. She was a stripper before a rapper saw one of her videos on Instagram and called her. So that's how she jumped into fame so quickly. She seems to have merged stripping and rapping and that's what she is all about.

Re: Smart speakers
I should have a look on YouTube. Rappers are not my thing and for what you say, she and her music sound vulgar to me, which is another thing that I dislike. Of course not appropriate for 9-year-olds. I wonder how she skyrocketed to fame. Or maybe not a surprise.

The MDU market continues to face fierce competition among service providers due to tech-savvy residents (i.e., millennials), demand from building owners and management companies, plus the favorable economics of bulk contracts. However, no MDUs are the same, so service providers must use multiple technologies and inconsistent deployment models, increasing operational complexity and rollout costs.

The MDU market itself is evolving as residents adopt smart-home technologies, generating rising demand for smart apartments with built-in connected thermostats, keyless entryways and doors, and video doorbells. This evolution presents both new challenges and opportunities. In other words, service providers must consider innovative service-delivery strategies to compete and win.

In this Broadband World News and ADTRAN webinar, Kurt Raaflaub, Head of Strategic Solutions Marketing, will highlight emerging MDU broadband Internet trends and challenges. In addition, Kurt will outline the next-generation service creation and delivery platform, built on open standards, that allows service providers to connect millions of underserved MDUs, enables creation of user-driven services, and reduces operational complexity and costs.

Plus, special guest, Alice Lawson, Broadband and Cable Program Manager for the City of Seattle, will discuss Seattle’s B4B-Build For Broadband initiative that addresses best practices in planning for MDU telecommunication infrastructure.
