Blossom, a beautifully designed bluetooth speaker

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 17:13:47 +0000

Say what you may about the trend of portable smartphone-to-bluetooth-to-speaker trend, it has managed to unleash a wave of creativity when it comes to speaker designs. I have been blown away by this concept Blossom speaker, designed by the Bebop Designers from Seoul, South Korea. On the webpage dedicated to the speaker, BeBop notes that “the form...

A rainy day & I’m thinking about the current state of media

Wed, 11 Jan 2017 01:44:18 +0000

I am sitting here, looking out of the window and it is pouring buckets. It feels colder than usual. And all that gray and rain has made me a little solemn. Or maybe it is the news — which is becoming increasingly atomized, lacking in context and creating a froth of noise pretending to be...

Look how far iPhone has come in 10 years 

Mon, 09 Jan 2017 19:39:28 +0000

These three charts show how far the iPhone has come in ten years since Steve Jobs first showed off the iPhone in front of the Mac faithful. What I find most amazing is the growing computing power that has been crammed into this device, and the camera which has become an eye on to the...

To set the record straight… 

Sat, 07 Jan 2017 16:14:53 +0000

Every so often I get emails from folks emailing me about an event Gigaom is hosting or pitching me a story. Others hit me up on Twitter and Facebook for same reasons. And while it would be nice to help, but unfortunately I don’t have any relationship with the current iteration of Gigaom and the...

Hasselblad and its missed opportunities 

Fri, 06 Jan 2017 20:10:37 +0000

The Chinese Drone maker DJI is taking over Hasselblad, the iconic camera maker, according to a report. I have heard the rumors as well. Hasselblad is a brand that has deep and rich history — it was the camera that went to the moon. (My friend Cole Rise is recreating these moon cameras in his...

This is Iceland

Fri, 06 Jan 2017 16:52:57 +0000

I am one of the many people who are in love with the sparse, hypnotic and majestic landscape of Iceland and its wonderful people. In case, you need more convincing, check out this website and some stunning photographs. Then pack your bags and go visit. It might be cold in winters, but still stark and...

Why Medium’s layoffs coverage reflects media’s skewed barometer of news

Fri, 06 Jan 2017 05:40:41 +0000

Technology media, like media in general, in more recent times has always been happy to jump on the populist news bandwagon. The more consumer news is easy to cover, especially if it involves a billionaire founder, a sizzling platform and lots of venture capital. It generates a lot of attention. A perfect example is the...

From Tech’s Empathy Vacuum to Zuck’s 2017 Challenge

Wed, 04 Jan 2017 02:46:09 +0000

Late November last year, I wrote a piece about Silicon Valley’s Empathy Vacuum for The New Yorker. It seemed to have struck a chord with a lot of people, especially in our industry. I am glad we started to talk about the issues we don’t normally talk about — the human consequence of disruption and...

2017: New Beginnings & (also) back to work

Wed, 04 Jan 2017 00:21:02 +0000

Welcome back. It was an amazing break for me – about ten days off work, of which seven were spent reading and enjoying good food, some photography and generally being a layabout. With the exception of the Christmas weekend, which I spent with my bestie and his family, I was in San Francisco which tends...

Wishing you all a very happy 2017

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 03:00:06 +0000

There is a time for everything And a season for every activity under the heavens A time to be born and a time to die A time to plant and a time to uproot A time to kill and a time to heal A time to tear down and a time to build A time...
