Banks face significant competition for attracting and retaining the kind of talent they need to meet the evolving needs of customers in an increasingly digital world.
There is a general shortage of candidates with technical skills and FinTech are snapping them up and the Big Canadian banks are losing out on recruiting the top talent.
Greater learning opportunities at FinTech startups is a key reason why top talent are walking away from the Big banks.

Trends that Define the 2000s
Only a decade ago the blackberry was just a fruit. Green was a colour with no political meaning. Reality TV was just crappy TV thrown in between bad videos on MTV.

Blendtec knows how to leverage YouTube and social networking to promote their products with the "Will It Blend" YouTube video series. Long before the Will It Blend? series exploded on YouTube, Tom Dickson was blending 2x2s with his blenders too. Today Blendtec published the inevitable "Will the Apple Watch Blend?" video.
The Will It Blend series takes on the Apple Watch in the Blendtec blender? Very entertaining indeed...

E Ink has turned into a company that's synonymous with the revitalization of the print sector in a few years-- the eReader. E Ink (electronic ink) refers to both a technology and a company. E Ink's technology is currently used in 93 per cent of all eReaders and a recent buyout of its nearest rival SiPix means E Ink now owns the market. How will E Ink continue to evolve to complete with full-colour LCD multi-purpose tablets?
The eReader market was tripling in volume between 2007 and 2011, but plateaued after 2012. Product launches have slowed and the colour tablet and smartphone has taken over.

The Total Blender that is used in the "Will it Blend" video series is the entry level blender for the Blendtec home product line. (You ought to see what Blendtec 20 amp commercial models will do...)
WIll these popular Apple products actually blend in a Blendtec blender? Very entertaining stuff indeed...
