Lyft Atlanta Ride Share Driving – Sports Techie blog

Lyft is my preferred ride sharing company even before Uber started started taking negative PR hits because of their corporate culture towards women employees primarily forcing their founder to step down. When I did not own a car, I relied on mostly public transportation and that means Marta buses and trains in Atlanta as well as relying on ride share. I bought a Chevy Cruze last year and now drive exclusively for Lyft although I am cleared for Uber too...

Sacramento Kings Social Media Night At Golden 1 Center Powered By Panasonic USA

From Social Media night content, to Kiss Cam, to the Noise Meter, to promotions about upcoming games and shows, this giant video display was both easy on the eyes and so lifelike, viewers tend to watch the video board more than the live action.

Being at Golden 1 Center during the Sacramento Kings social media night as an industry expert on behalf of Panasonic was an ultimate fan experience I will never forget, thank you. Downtown Commons (DOCO) features the NBA’s most technologically advanced and sustainable venue. The Panasonic Solutions Group and I were given a private tour of the arena by team executives. I then conducted interview sessions with team management and a Panasonic executive...

The International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018 was the perfect tech event for Panasonic to celebrate their 100-year company anniversary together with consumers and vendors of electronics. This was my first CES so naturally I was excited to be in attendance on behalf of Panasonic USA and THE Sports Techie community blog.

Sports Gambling May Soon Be Legal Outside Las Vegas

Sports Gambling May Soon Be Legal Outside Las Vegas – Sports Techie blog.

Sports betting and gambling may soon be legal outside of Las Vegas perhaps by next year in states like New Jersey from all indications. NBA commissioner Adam Silver to former MLB commish Fay Vincent are making statements indicating they are betting on this sea of change happening  in the near future even though an ongoing lawsuit by the leagues, NCAA and the United States Justice Department says otherwise. I believe the rapid advancement of technology such as the internet, apps, kiosks, and tracking, means the issues that plagued the idea of legalized bets on football, baseball and basketball, hockey, fighting and racing, and even new sports such as Esports and Ultimate Frisbee, are obsolete...

The Sports Techie community blog loves golf and the integration of technology such as range finders, GPS tech and apps to make the game more appealing for everyone no matter skill level or dedication to the game.

In 2013, 160 of 14,600 golf facilities closed, which also marked an 8th consecutive year of net closures and a player base of 25 million.
