    Translate.com Launches Its Enterprise Translation Platform

    Emerge Media’s Translate.com, which launched about four years ago, has probably the best domain name you can have if you’re in the translation business.

    The Mystery Money Creating The Unicorn Herd

    Varied explanations for the growing herd of unicorns — and predictions of their imminent demise — abound. But all can agree: Those who invest in unicorns are chasing returns they can’t get elsewhere.

    Software For The Full-Stack Era

    The history of software is dominated by companies that automated how the biggest companies in the world did business.

    It’s Your Fault Email Is Broken

    As an email startup CEO, I hear it every week. “I hate email. Email sucks. Why can’t anyone fix it? And why would you want to spend your life working on something everyone hates?” Email is an obvious target for blame, since we collectively send 183 billion of them every single day. But blaming email is like shooting the messenger (or shooting the envelope, rather). Read More

    Of Course Microsoft Will Push Windows 10 Updates To Consumers

    Freak out, everyone, Microsoft intends to update its software. That it said it would update. That it said it would update on a continuous basis. Because it’s trying to build and release Windows 10 as a service. So it’s going to push new code. LOSE YOUR SHIT. Kidding. But really, I’m slightly confused. I had to spend the morning on trains to meet an unelected political… Read More
