Laundry folding Aside from the impracticalities of having an additional appliance that looks to be the size of a filing cabinet in my living space, I'm definitely not in the automatic-laundry-folder demographic. For me, folding laundry is probably the chore I get the most peace and enjoyment out of. I find that it's useful for relaxation -- and, besides, it's one of the cleanest and tidiest chores to do in the house (because it strictly involves handling things that are already freshly cleaned).
So why the "don't ask the price" on that slide? Because it's hideously expensive (as one might think such a thing to be)? Or because the vendor outright refused to share pricing information?

Re: AFLAC!! From giant tongue and huge suitcase boombox to laundry folding machines, it looks like everyone had the oportuninty to not only learn but be entertained this year at CES 2018. Wonder what we could predict for 2019?
AFLAC!! I'm unclear on who the intended buyer is for that laundry-folding gadget. From what I've read, you have to attach the garment to clips on the device before it will work. At that point, isn't it just as easy to fold it yourself?
Now if you could dump a basket of laundry into an intake and have it come out all nice and folded, people might be willing to buy it.
OTOH, people seem to like their smart house gadgets and for me I don't see the point. If I want to turn on or off a light, I get up and turn on or off a light. Or even better position a lamp near my favorite places to sit.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
