Simply said-This company was wise enough to recognise talent and it is Trump's loss compared to their gain
I applaud Sys-Con for there acumen.

Dave, you're right on the mark, it's a bit baffling that they would give her the CEO position of what appears to be an International organization and only offer $150K. Perhaps there are hidden bonus advantages they haven't released but it's a ridulously low offer.

I don't believe age should have anything to do with it. If you have developed that much savy by 23, then the business acumen will defintiley follow provided the proper mentorship. Is that not what the show is all about? Randal is already successful and just wanted the Trump experience to take him to the next level. Rebecca has a kick ass attitude that will serve her well in the business world. Look what she accomplished in her teens. If her age had not been mentioned, it wouldn't have been an issue. For her to get to the final two, is testament to her ability. How old is Randal?? That didn't come up because of his obvious educational and business background.

Rebecca rocked Trump's world the day she vehemently defended Toral. Randal fell from grace in two seconds with his decision that so obviously opposed what Trump loved about Rebecca, her loyalty, honestly and selflessness. He is no doubt a terrific leader, but it's amazing what a bit of celebrity to can do to someone that, for all appearances, has it totally together. Even the best and most educated can slip up...badly.

Dear Dave 12/17/05 05:20:03 PM EST

"With all due respect to your comment on my comment, let's keep the discussion going."

Sure. Are you Rebecca's uncle?

"BTW, thanks for commenting, however to be fair, let's compare apples to apples here."

You are quite welcome.

"Rebecca may be 23 years old but she is far from fresh from college. Apparently you missed the review of her credentials which included working with top government officials at 15 years old and raising $750,000+."

Did not miss it, "resume" gets you to the interview, if you get lucky during the interview you get the job.

What did she do, decided to fly from Chicago to Washington at the age of 15 and created miracles? FEMA's Michael Brown had a nice resume too, with a real job attached to it.

"You're being a bit cynically by trying to compare the timelines and scope of the Apprentice task vs. the ones you describe would be her responsibility in the new job."

No I'm not.

"The Apprentice task is specifically designed to put the candidates under pressure with a small workforce and short timeframe to see how they handle stress."

OK

"In the real world no one is asked to produce the international trade shows you describe in a matter of days or with a small group of people."

Yes you do, in many cases smaller groups with lots of experience. How many people do you think is working at Trump's headquarters, in his payroll?

"Wondering how she's going to stuff 10,000 bags in real life is simply too ludicrous to argue with you about."

10,000 bags are a lot of bags to stuff.

"I know for a fact that large scale conventions have full time staff that work on next years convention the moment the current one is over. There are multiple committees and susb-committees set up for every contingency."

And why would the producers of large conventions do you think need Rebecca as their CEO? For her experience? What is she going to teach them?

"The job of the CEO is to organize, delegate and focus on problems as they arise, which is what both Randal and Rebecca did very well under the circumstances."

What you saw was a TV show which has no resemblance to what happens in real life. In real life if you don't check the Weather you get fired the first rain drop hits the ground. On TV shows Trump hires you from the show's payroll budget.

"Trump's only concern was why she focused on Yahoo's concerns and her explanation satisfied Donald Trump, George and Carolyn."

In real life, when you have to hang 30 sponsor banners in the Los Angeles Convention Center who paid you $300,000 down for a sponsorship, you have a serious problem in your hands. If you don't have at least 15 years of experience as a trade show CEO, you can't do the job right. Rebecca chocked between two banners and couldn't get it right.

"She concisely explained that it was Yahoo's executives being invited and they didn't want an overt call for donations. Yahoo provided the facilities and were the people Rebecca's team were being given direction by. They were the boss and she listened to what they wanted and delivered it. Yahoo knew they made a mistake and compromised Rebecca's chance at success by announcing early in the final program that they would donate $100,000 to each of the charities. Trump recognized that Rebecca followed the orders she was given and that's a sign of a good CEO."

In real life, if those charities were companies, that would be the first and the last show you would put together. There wouldn't be a second one.

I agree with you on "a sign of a good CEO" but she is not a CEO, she may be one in 5, 10, 15 years from now. There are many things in life you can only learn by experience. Children are not born as marathon champs, nobel prize winners, or CEOs, they become one when the time comes to earn those titles as a result fo their achievements.

"This woman does not require 10 years of 'seasoning' as you imply before she's worth more income. You're absolutely correct in saying that you don't pay money for the title but Rebecca at 23 has more work experience in some respects than most people accumulate in decades in the workforce."

If you are not a surgent, you can not operate on a patient. If you don't know how to do contract negotiations, you can not negotiate with labor unions. In any business, CEO's role is to know his/her business inside out. I think she is an ideal apprentice to grow into a real CEO position in time and she was impressive -and lucky too but you need luck in real life as well.

"Also she displayed incredible intestinal fortitude by not letting her broken ankle slow her down or using it as an excuse."

That's a very good quality indeed.

She's tough but fair and leads by example. These character traits brought out the very best in the 'employees' she chose to help her, which is another feature of a seasoned CEO."

Very important qualities, yes. But she is not a CEO not to mention a "seasoned" one. I'm sure she will be one when the time comes.

"Pay her the money now - she's proved she's worth it. This company offering her the job isn't asking her to work her way up through the organization because they realize she has what it takes to be at the top already."

I don't know about "this company." That's their business.

"They're just low-balling the offer, which makes good financial sense, but they chance losing her to a smarter company by trying to be cheap. My logic wins this argument but nice try."

I don't know about that either. All I know is what we saw was a TV show. Is there one cast member in this show's history ever got a real CEO job after their involvement with the show? I don't know one.

I myself am a trade show CEO with 20 years of professional experience and an annual income of a little over 3 million dollars. This has been one of the rare TV shows I watched and enjoyed. I am telling you I know what it takes to be a CEO. If you think you are a genius child, then my best advice is start your own company and become its CEO. Michael Dell did it when he was 16 and dropped out of college.

Trump once wrote, he wanted to take the summer off, hired bunch of geniuses from Harvard and MIT to run his business, in less than a month after his return from Europe, they almost put him out of business.

Larry Ellison in his Yale speech asked who the top students of the class of 2000 were and told them that "they were all losers."

He never went to college, Bill Gates never graduated from one. Now they are both CEOs. Of course, so is Michael Dell.

No one is going to hire Rebecca. After a year or so, going through her star struck head spin, she will step her feet back on earth and get a job somehere like everyone else.

She seems to be a good kid. I wish her all the best luck.

With all due respect 12/17/05 01:06:50 PM EST

Dave commented: "This position sounds very exciting and is obviously well deserved, but sadly the salary offered is far too low."

With all due respect Rebecca does not have any experience at 23, fresh out of college to be a real CEO.

Keep in mind that this is just a TV show with producers, cast members, etc. First of all how many 23 year-old fresh college graduates are being offered a $150,000 job? None.

Second, there is no way she can produce an international trade show with 10,000 plus attendees, 500 exhibitors, 300 speakers, 12+ keynotes, union labor negotiations, hotel contract executions, logistics at one of the country's largest convention centers, and under very tight deadlines. This is real multi-million dollar busines they are talking about, not a TV show.

In the Apprentice movie, she could not even recruit first grade comedians even throwing the "Trump", "Apprentice" "National TV" names to the real professional comedians.

The event they put together was a complete mess for the slightest professional considerations.

Even Trump said "this looks like an unorganized mess" in a small project to get a couple of third grade comedians on a stage with a couple of hundred people watching it.

How is she going to stuff 10,000 bags in real life?

Rebecca can be a good candidate for an excellent CEO in about 10 years time. In the mean time she should keep doing what she has been doing, gain lots of experience,and when the time is ready she will be a CEO one day, no doubt about that.

You don't pay money for the title, you pay money for the experience and what your experience brings to the table. That's how the real business world goes on.

Mt 2 cents here fellows.

Dave Theobald 12/17/05 04:33:39 AM EST

Hurrah for Rebecca! I hope she doesn't jump at the first few job offers she gets but waits to see how many she gets before deciding. This position sounds very exciting and is obviously well deserved, but sadly the salary offered is far too low, compared to what other CEO's are paid for far less responsibilty. If she does eventually work for this company, I hope she negotiates a better salary.

Chris Christens 12/17/05 02:25:49 AM EST

Excellent choice! Rebecca displayed more tact and ability than any other applicant she contended against. I applaud your decision. Randal showed extreme selfishness to hog the limelight after being offered the position first. He commands NO respect from me or my employees!

Dave Theobald 12/16/05 11:15:56 PM EST

Randal was a class act up until he refused to allow Rebecca to be hired as well. Now I and millions alike who watched the program, feel Randall just proved that he's a very selfish and obviously insecure person and publicly proven himself to be a class ass. He truly made a pathetic spectacle of himself and is being branded a non-class act for his behavior.

George Carr 12/16/05 10:31:28 PM EST

I agree with Mr Kazacos - Randall is a big disappointment - his stock has gone way down.

Martha should grab her. She's far better than anything she has had to choose from.

JAMES C. KAZACOS 12/16/05 07:47:11 PM EST

I THINKTHAT RANDALL HAS NO CLASS FOR WISHING TO GET ALL THE MEDIA ATTENTION
SELFISHLY.I WAS VERY SURPRISED BY HIS ANSWER TO MR.TRUMPS WBOUT THE RESULTS OF THE SHOW...IE..APPRENTACE AND APPRENTAI ...SINCERELY,, JAMES

sondra 12/16/05 05:45:27 PM EST

You are making the right decision and have selected one of the most outstading leaders i have ever encountered throughout my life. I cannot believe Mr. Trump allowed Ms. Jarvis to slip through the cracks. Aside from her outstanding attributes, which we are all well aware of, she is young. One would say because she is young, you can mold her, but you do not have to mold her, she is molded fine. however, what you can do is outline her perfect mold to fit your company's behavior. I wish her all the luck in the world, although she does not need my wishes - as i mention above, she is truly an OUTSTANDING AND INTELLIGENT person with an amazing way about her. i enjoyed watching her and hope my 7 month year old daughter is just like her when she grows up! as a parent i salute her parents as well - they did a fine job.

tom 12/16/05 03:09:24 PM EST

Congrats to Rebecca...to bad Trump didn't have enough guts to hire them both....I for one plus another person that watched the Trump show will never watch it again....wonder how many more out there says the HELL with Trump...and hey with the next years ratings going down the tube he won't have Martha to blame this time...the mans a coward not a great leader that he thinks he is...Tom..Ontario..Canada

There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices – computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors – connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo in Silicon Valley.

P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.

With the iCloud scandal seemingly in its past, Apple announced new iPhones, updates to iPad and MacBook as well as news on OSX Yosemite. Although consumers will have to wait to get their hands on some of that new stuff, what they can get is the latest release of iOS 8 that Apple made available for most in-market iPhones and iPads. Originally announced at WWDC (Apple’s annual developers conference) in June, iOS 8 seems to spearhead Apple’s newfound focus upon greater integration of their products into everyday tasks, cross-platform mobility and self-monitoring. Before you update your device, here is a look at some of the new features and things you may want to consider from a mobile security perspective.
