Their Eyes Are Watching You

They’re watching you. They know if you’ve been bad or good. They know whether you really need that cashmere sweater at Macy’s. A new form of seeing eye mannequins may be coming to a storefront near you and you may never know they are there.

Also this week, I interview ProPlus Design Systems executive Chairman Zhihong Lui about modeling tools, what their NanoYield solution is all about, and why his favorite tunes to play on the accordion are Russian.

I have a brand new nerdy giveaway to throw your way this week, but you’ll have to listen to find out what it is and how to win.
