WASHINGTON, Aug. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:
Profile America — Friday, August 15th. Chairs have a history going back to the ancient Egyptian Pharaohs, or even earlier in antiquity. But a couple of variants that no one was anxious to try out debuted this month in the 19th century. In 1890, the electric chair was used for the first time in Auburn, New York, to carry out a death sentence. Scarcely more alluring, a special dental chair was patented on this date in 1848 by Waldo Hanchett. His innovation was a wooden recliner with an extending headrest, and a tray-like footrest, so patients could open wide in somewhat greater comfort. Most furniture isn't so specialized, and America's 16,000 manufacturers of chairs, tables, beds and all other household furniture and related products ship over $64 billion worth of goods annually. Profile America is in its 17th year as a public service of the U.S. Census Bureau.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches.
