Random House presents the audiobook edition of Talk to Me, written and read by James Vlahos. The next great technological disruption is coming.The titans of Silicon Valley are racing to build a single world-changing piece of software. They know that whoever gets there first will revolutionise our relationship with technology - and make billions of dollars in the process. They call it voice computing.Computers that can speak and think just as clearly as humans may seem like the stuff of science fiction, but they are mere years away from becoming a reality. In Talk to Me, veteran tech journalist James Vlahos meets the researchers at Google, Amazon and Apple who are leading the way to a voice computing revolution. He explores how voice tech will transform every sector of society, handing untold new powers to businesses, and fundamentally altering the way we understand human consciousness. And he even tries to understand the significance of the AI revolution firsthand - by building a robotic version of his terminally ill father. Vlahos’ research leads him to one fundamental question: what happens when our computers become as articulate, as compassionate and as creative as we are? 1. Language: English. Narrator: James Vlahos.

The first inside view of life at Google from one of its original employees--Employee #59--captures the emotions and tensions as the company´s young partners race to break rules, defy conventional wisdom, and rocket their company to the top.
Bicycle Race:Implementierung einer realitätsnahen Fahrsimulation für Ergometer mit Hilfe von Google Earth Remo Quadrelli/ Giovanni Annunzio
Comparing Google to an ordinary business is like comparing a rocket to an Edsel. No academic analysis or bystander´s account can capture it. Now Doug Edwards, Employee Number 59, offers the first inside view of Google, giving listeners a chance to fully experience the bizarre mix of camaraderie and competition at this phenomenal company. Edwards, Google´s first director of marketing and brand management, describes it as it happened. We see the first, pioneering steps of Larry Page and Sergey Brin, the company´s young, idiosyncratic partners; the evolution of the company´s famously nonhierarchical structure (where every employee finds a problem to tackle or a feature to create and works independently); the development of brand identity; the races to develop and implement each new feature; and the many ideas that never came to pass. Above all, Edwards - a former journalist who knows how to write - captures the Google Experience, the rollercoaster ride of being part of a company creating itself in a whole new universe. I´m Feeling Lucky captures for the first time the unique, self-invented, yet profoundly important culture of the world´s most transformative corporation. 1. Language: English.

Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google are the four most influential companies on the planet. Just about everyone thinks they know how they got there. Just about everyone is wrong. For all that´s been written about the Four over the last two decades, no one has captured their power and staggering success as insightfully as Scott Galloway. Instead of buying the myths these companies broadcast, Galloway asks fundamental questions. How did the Four infiltrate our lives so completely that they´re almost impossible to avoid (or boycott)? Why does the stock market forgive them for sins that would destroy other firms? And as they race to become the world´s first trillion-dollar company, can anyone challenge them? In the same irreverent style that has made him one of the world´s most celebrated business professors, Galloway deconstructs the strategies of the Four that lurk beneath their shiny veneers. He shows how they manipulate the fundamental emotional needs that have driven us since our ancestors lived in caves, at a speed and scope others can´t match. And he reveals how you can apply the lessons of their ascent to your own business or career. Whether you want to compete with them, do business with them, or simply live in the world they dominate, you need to understand the Four. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jonathan Todd Ross.

A veteran space journalist digs into the science and technology - past, present, and future - central to our explorations of Earth´s only satellite, the space destination most hotly pursued today. In this rich audiobook, veteran science journalist Leonard David explores the moon in all its facets, from ancient myth to future ´´Moon Village´´ plans. David offers inside information about how the United States, allies, and competitors, as well as key private corporations like Moon Express and Jeff Bezos´s Blue Origin, plan to reach, inhabit, and even harvest the moon in the decades to come. Spurred on by the Google Lunar XPRIZE - $30 million for the first to get to the moon and send images home - the 21st-century space race back to the moon has become more urgent, and more timely, than ever. Accounts of these new strategies are set against past efforts, including stories never before told about the Apollo missions and Cold War plans for military surveillance and missile launches from the moon. Timely and fascinating, this book sheds new light on our constant lunar companion, offering reasons to gaze up and see it in a different way than ever before. 1. Language: English.

The word ´´entrepreneur´´ comes from the French verb ´´entreprendre´´, meaning ´´to do´´ or ´´to undertake´´. An entrepreneur is someone who ´´does´´, someone who acts. Generally, this means putting the time, energy, and money into starting up a business, and being willing to take the risks that come along with it. Whereas most people see problems, entrepreneurs see opportunities. Whereas most people complain about problems, entrepreneurs create solutions. Small businesses are the lifeblood of the economy. Nearly two-thirds of all jobs created in the past 15 years have come from small businesses, and over half of these businesses are run from home! About one out of 10 people work for themselves or for a small company. We´re all very fortunate to live in a world that encourages the creation and growth of new businesses. The process of opening your own company is relatively easy. But who can be an entrepreneur? Anyone can be an entrepreneur. You may be a 20-year-old with no money in the bank with just a good idea, but you can still build a company from scratch. You don´t have to be old to create a business: Google, Facebook, and Dell are all examples of companies that were started by students. You don´t need lot of money, either: Microsoft, Nike, Domino´s Pizza, Hewlett-Packard, and Eastman Kodak are all examples of companies that were started with $10,000 or less. Don´t think that setting up a business is an intimidating task that requires a lot of work, money, and special talent. 1. Language: English. Narrator: William Dougan.
