One of the biggest challenges of starting a business is figuring out how to price the goods and services you offer. You don't want to undersell yourself and devalue the market, but overpricing and scaring off potential clients is just as dangerous. Pricing similar to the competition is a good place to start, but since what you're offering is presumably not exactly the same, the prices shouldn't be either. That's why we've compiled this guide that will break down everything you need to know about pricing. The first thing to remember is that your pricing shouldn't be exactly the same as the competition's, just as your services aren't exactly the same. While it's good to compare pricing, it's also important to have a strong...

But what about simulating a day at work in VR? GamesBeat writer Jeff Grubb did exactly that, using Virtual Desktop, an upcoming PC program that allows anyone with a HTC Vive or Oculus Rift headset to emulate their desktop in the VR world. To truly understand how VR is making an impact today, it's essential to realize that many emerging technologies require a lot of trial and error and  that most of today's tech products are for consumer use rather than business use.

Amazon is pushing the old pizza delivery slogan of “30 minutes or less” for their flagship drone delivery service. Meanwhile, the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum fur Luft und Ramfahrt, DLR) is seeking to take that mantra about 5 steps further by having drones deliver packages to you no matter where you are, including to the roof of your car utilizing an attachable drone launching pad. The DLR has already been testing this launching pad idea using a solar-powered Penguin BE UAV. According to the DLR's press release, there have been several design changes in the drone that will allow it to travel at greater heights and distances more quickly. “Eliminating the landing gear significantly increases the payload capability of a...

Domino's Pizza advertised delivery of its pizzas in 30 minutes or it was free, and this guarantee of pizza at your doorstep in a half hour was the pizza chain's marketing slogan from 1979 to 1993. Now, Amazon is seeking to revive the concept of “30 minutes or less” using modern technology—in this case, drones. Amazon's vice president of global public policy, Paul Misener, outlined his plans in an interview with Yahoo. “The goals we've set for ourselves are: The range has to be over 10 miles. These things will weigh about 55 pounds each, but they'll be able to deliver parcels that weigh...

WMCH Drone
With public interest in drones skyrocketing and many people buying drones for the very first time, accidents can and will happen—and that's why there is now drone insurance. Drones are some costly, valuable pieces of tech, and it makes sense that amateurs or businesses that utilize drones would want to insure and protect them in case damage befalls them. Case in point, Tom Kilpatrick, founder of CloudDeck Media and a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) licensed drone pilot who has insured his drone for $1 million. Many insurance companies have been providing drone insurance for a while now, but now that drone ownership is open to everyone, the risks will obviously increase. According to one report discussing insurance in the drone industry,...

Many athletes in extreme sports use GoPro cameras to document their sessions, so it should come as little surprise that GoPro is also seeking to enter the surging drone market. Its brand recognition could give it an edge in a fast-paced market where industries of all sorts are seeking to make a profit off of using drones. GoPro quietly made moves in 2015 to enter the drone market by purchasing Kolor, a French company that produced 360-degree video software. It is currently developing a platform to stitch together multiple 360-degree videos from different GoPro units, and is also entering the enterprise space by having a division specifically for 360-degree spherical applications.
