  • Apple’s enterprise evolution
    by Ron Miller on 20th January 2018 at 2:30 pm

     Back in 2010, Apple’s iconic co-founder Steve Jobs was not entirely enthralled with the enterprise. In fact, Jobs is famously quoted as saying, “What I love about the consumer market, that I always hated about the enterprise market, is that we come up with a product, we try to tell everybody about it, and every person votes for themselves.” Read Mor […]

  • Yes, cities should indeed fight for tech jobs
    by Danny Crichton on 20th January 2018 at 2:15 am

     Few events have jolted the urban planning crowd quite like Amazon’s process for selecting the company’s new second headquarters (dubbed HQ2). The company put up a massive carrot of 50,000 jobs and $5 billion in investment, and then proceeded to demand proposals from cities across North America (lovingly written up by Clickhole). Perhaps unsurprisingly, Amazon received 238… Read Mor […]

  • Google CEO: ‘I don’t regret’ firing James Damore
    by Katie Roof on 19th January 2018 at 11:14 pm

     Google CEO Sundar Pichai says he still believes that it was appropriate to fire James Damore. “I don’t regret it,” said Pichai, in an interview with Recode’s Kara Swisher and MSNBC’s Ari Melber. It’s been almost six months since the company dismissed the engineer, who authored a controversial memo about purported gender differences. Read Mor […]

    by Devin Coldewey on 19th January 2018 at 10:53 pm

     Things aren’t going well down at the ol’ nano-factory. They’re having trouble getting all those tiny workers to synchronize and move quickly together. But leave it to the Germans to get things running smoothly! All it took was a careful application of that newfangled technology “electricity.” Read Mor […]

    by Matthew Panzarino on 19th January 2018 at 10:29 pm

     If the feeling at the fairly liberal leaning Sundance Film Festival — held last year after Trump’s election but before the inauguration —was one of impending doom, this year it’s all about prophecy fulfilled. Read Mor […]

    by Josh Constine on 19th January 2018 at 9:56 pm

     “When people view VR, it’s an over-sensory experience like ‘What the fuck?!’ ” will.i.am says, wildly spinning his head around as you can see in the GIF below. That was the Black Eyed Peas’ frontman’s inspiration for creating a 90-minute VR comic book that moves at your pace and lets emotion sink in instead of battering you with visuals. Read Mor […]

  • Moritz sabotages Sequoia, again
    by Connie Loizos on 19th January 2018 at 8:25 pm

     Michael Moritz is legendary for many of the investments he has led throughout his long career with the venture firm Sequoia Capital. But Moritz has placed a target on Sequoia’s back — again — by publishing a controversial opinion piece comparing Silicon Valley unfavorably to China. To say it is extreme is an understatement.

  • Education technology is a global opportunity
    by Emmanuel Nataf on 19th January 2018 at 8:00 pm

     Education used to be simple: there was a blackboard, a teacher and desks in a classroom. Today, a student can practice English online, upload homework through a portal and learn chemistry through 3D immersion — such is the rise of educational technologies. And nowhere is the advent of edtech climbing more quickly than in Asia. Read Mor […]

  • Amazon brings voice control to its Alexa app for Android, with iOS coming soon
    by Brian Heater on 19th January 2018 at 6:01 pm

     Amazon’s slow push into mobile is getting a lot more real this morning with the addition of voice integration into its Android app for Alexa. Up to now, the app has been little more than a way to manage settings for the Echo and other smart home devices built around its smart assistant. The addition of voice commands means users can speak directly to their handset the way they would an… Read Mor […]
