The Voice Conundrum: Getting up to Speed with Digital Transformation

There is much friction on whether phones are easy to use (which they are) and being easy to configure (which they are not).

Jack Wallen delivers his take on this transaction. I would love to use Google Wallet. Unfortunately, it’s rather challenging to find shops, restaurants, and services that support any form of digital pay where I live.
