bgX Could Be A Blowout Success, And Help Uber, Toomichael-arrington

Mon, 05 Mar 2018 19:08:09 +0000

I was in Dubai a couple of weeks ago on business for my new crypto-focused fund. It is one of my favorite cities (although the Internet blocking can be annoying), and each time I visit I receive a warm welcome from friends and friends of friends. This trip was no different. I tweeted that the […]

The Real History Of TechCrunchmichael-arrington

Update: Keith and I have had a private email exchange and conversation about this. With his permission I’ve included his email in full below this post. I don’t agree with parts of it but we have come to a general agreement on a key issue. Keith will refer to himself as a “Founding Shareholder” in […]

The Venture Capitalists Behind Superfishmichael-arrington

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 21:14:15 +0000

Lots of people are talking about the Superfish malware debacle. People are starting to understand just how bad this situation is. What I haven’t seen so far why venture capitalists would have backed such a startup. Superfish investors, board members and advisors include Andrea Stavopouslos (Draper Fisher Jurvestson), Abe Finkelstein (Vintage Investment Partners), Anat Segal […]

We Deserve A Better Bitcoin Experience Than Circlemichael-arringtonIMG_5168Screen_Shot_2015-02-17_at_7.10.04_PM-26srpn7mScreen Shot 2015-02-17 at 10.25.29 PM

I finally got around to trying out Circle today. Boy it’s bad. Particularly for a company that has raised $26 million. This is a space we’re interested in at CrunchFund, and are looking for who might be the breakout winners. Circle is supposed to be a dead simple Bitcoin wallet and money transfer service. But […]

I’d like a combined ebook/audio book productmichael-arrington

Wed, 04 Feb 2015 03:56:00 +0000

Just finished reading about a fairly stupid new book scanning product from Amazon and it reminded me of a product I’d actually really like to have – books that comes in both ebook (text) and audio formats, with tracking and the ability to switch back and forth at will. I read most of my books […]

MTailor Launches on Android. Get Yourself A Perfect Shirt.michael-arringtonmtailor

Fri, 30 Jan 2015 22:19:20 +0000

Up until now only iPad/iPhone people could use MTailor, the app that uses your mobile device to scan you more perfectly than any tailor ever could, and have shirts made to your exact measurements. I last wrote about them in December when CrunchFund invested. Since then they’ve sold a LOT of shirts. They haven’t started […]

The Conference In Detroitmichael-arringtonrebootdetroit

Detroit. It was once the factory of America. No more. For most of us, Detroit has been a city in decline for much or all of our lives. The population has declined rapidly, and everyone has seen the images of abandoned buildings, drug violence and abject poverty. In other words, Detroit is the perfect place […]

The Ethics Of Publishing Hacked Informationmichael-arrington

Mon, 15 Dec 2014 20:54:18 +0000

Like many people I’ve been fascinated by the Sony hacks. So much interesting information (and gossip) about the inner workings of a major movie studio. I was also waiting for Sony to start balking at the re-publication of a lot of that information by the news sites. And sure enough, they’re now calling it stolen […]

MTailor: The Perfectly Tailored Man’s Shirtmichael-arringtonmtailor

Wed, 10 Dec 2014 22:21:05 +0000

MTailor, one of our recent investments at CrunchFund, is a really amazing company. They make tailored shirts for men, except your mobile device is the tailor. You go through a quick scanning process that involves leaning your phone or tablet against a wall and then spinning slowly in front of it. Once that’s done MTailor […]

“Time Collapse” And My Broken Brainmichael-arrington

Tue, 11 Nov 2014 05:52:26 +0000

I was perusing the news headlines this evening and I noticed this article about Glenn Beck’s health troubles. A few sentences early on in the article floored me, because it describes how I feel exactly: “Doctors tell me that up until recently, I hadn’t had a real REM sleep in maybe as long as a […]
