What could be possibly sweeter than Juice? The Technology Bracketology Sweet 16, of course! And oh! how sweet it is! The 64 became 32; who became 16. Sixteen technologies that have turned their competitor's lemonade into lemons. Check it out:
Here are a couple of games that we found particularly interesting:
Number 2 seed iTunes came out on top of 10 seeded Pandora, but not by as much as we might have expected. Pandora clinched a full 39% of the votes. Cool.
The truly amazing story was how much number 5 seeded GPS crushed number 4 seeded Twitter with 88% of the votes. (Hmmm... sounds like a sweet tweet in the making.)
So, here comes round 3:
Now it's time to have at it and vote for your favorite 8! Don't forget to pick your winners based on:
- influence: changed how we thought about a problem and future technology solutions
- innovative: new and different, why didn't I think of that?
- adoption: pervasive, widely used
You can vote for your favorites on the Technology Bracketology Round 3. We'll report on Round 3 results on Monday, March 25th.
And the 16 shall become 8. Sweet!
(By the way we couldn't help but to point out our favorite comment from one of our voters: "I think that Juice needs to acquire one of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners of the tourney and get a group picture with said winners." Thanks for your feedback. We'll get right on that!)
