If you’re a member of ASI I have some disappointing news. The Nov/Dec issue of Wearables magazine is the last to be published. I’m most disappointed that Theresa Hegel won’t be joining us anymore sharing their annual State of the Industry Report. Tons of interesting and useful information. I’ve mentioned to other industry publications that one of them should scoop up this great annual issue and make it their own. Sorry to see you go, Wearables!
Please Contact Us if you have news to share.
