What's the recipe for building a good product?

What is a good product? Have you ever wondered what a good product is? When I buy a product that I can easily install and start using, I can start to believe that “it’s a good product”. Last year I bought a home theatre: it suited my living room in terms of its colours and shape, I easily connected the 5+1 speakers using the coloured connectors, I connected it to the TV using the cable...

Ten findings on the Australian HVAC/R market

It seems that the characteristic optimism of Australians is also reflected in the country’s HVAC/R market. Whereas HFC refrigerant prices in Europe are rising dramatically, and the lack of a drop-in for R-410A is creating great concern among stakeholders, the general feeling in Australia is that the phase down will go smoothly. This was one of the conclusions I brought back home after spending...

Is HVAC/R something for the boys?

When I was a child, my mother always waited for me after school. She was a housewife, just like many of my classmates’ mothers. In the eighties, in a provincial town in northern Italy, there were few full-time schools and almost no summer camps. Today, thirty years later, things have changed radically, and when I go to pick up my son from school, in the mid-afternoon, I meet many grandparents...

Amazing smart technology: are we ready for the new Nerds?

Last night I was watching a TV game show: there was a 23-year-old contestant who didn’t know that the acronym CPU stood for the central processing unit of a personal computer.
