re: Disney Tries Tech For A Bit More Magic
I think many consumers would appreciate this type of technology, as it would definitely improve their experiences. But I could also see how they might be wary of the use of their information -- or that of their children -- by Disney for marketing or other purposes. I'm sure, though, that Disney officials are smart enough to recognize this and will do everything in their power to transform this new tech-driven experience into a positive one.

I'm definitely one of those who would rather unplug from technology during a vacation but if they offer enough incentives and rewards I'd still go for the bracelet.

I think this is bringing information/data capture to a new level. If done correctly, Disney should be able to increase profits (and easily cover the $1b price tag), but also improve things for customers. Consumers expect advanced technology from companies. This seems like a no brainer for Disney. And Disney should be able to pull it off.

InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
