Zoom CEO Eric Yuan on the challenges of adapting an enterprise product for consumers

There’s been a lot of talk about the consumerization of IT in the workplace. But in the case of Zoom, the pandemic forced the high-flying video conferencing service to rapidly shift gears in the other direction, resulting in some painful lessons along the way.

Zoom founder and CEO Eric Yuan said despite the company’s culture of always trying to see the world through its customers’ eyes, it had to rethink many of its assumptions when suddenly a wide range of consumers began using Zoom for everything from distance learning to having virtual cocktails with friends.

“On the one hand, we were very excited, because after many years of hard work your dream is coming true of helping people stay connected,” Yuan said. “But then suddenly, you have 30 times more growth than you were expecting, so how do you handle that? You’ve got to work harder.”

The Tomahawk is the final version of what we saw at CES 2020 back in January. It’s a simple case design with two PCIe slots: one for a full-sized GPU, and one for an Intel NUC Element board that contains the CPU, the RAM, the storage, and basically everything else you need for a functional PC.

The NUC module includes a 45W Core i9-9980HK Coffee Lake processor, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, a 512GB NVMe SSD, and a 2TB hard drive.

Three Product Concepts from OPPO

At INNO DAY 2020, the smartphone brand introduced three new concept products that would “define future technological exploration”

A short while ago, consumer electronics and mobile communications OPPO held its OPPO INNO DAY 2020 event with “Leap into the Future” as the theme. A major talking point at the event was the company’s 3+N+X technology development strategy, with the “3” referring to the three underlying technologies, namely hardware, software and services technologies; the “N” representing a number of OPPO’s essential capabilities, including AI, security and privacy, multimedia, and interconnectivity; and the “X” referring to the leading-edge and differentiated technologies and strategic resources.
