    All Hail The Mega-Processor!

    Once upon a time, long ago, there were computers, and they were very large. Warehouse large. Multi-story large. Tractor-trailer large. So large that in those mythical days of yore, now lost in the mists of time, men were real men(1), women were real women(2), and bugs were actual physical bugs(3), to paraphrase Douglas Adams.

    Media Tech And Venture Capital

    “You can’t get venture capital if you’re hiring people who make content.” Of all the people least likely to say those words, Jonah Peretti, chief executive of BuzzFeed, would have to be high on the list. But Peretti is no stranger to having people say exactly that to him. Looking for investment in his startup back in 2006, Peretti found that the mere mention of the… Read More

    The Rush To Find A Dance Partner Is Causing A Wearables Misstep

    This morning at Baselworld, the world’s premiere luxury watch show, there was ample news about wearables. That’s a sign that wearable tech is coming of age in some ways, but this represents the awkward teen years, not the arrival of adulthood and maturity.

    Apple Expediting The Future Is No Betrayal

    Apple’s new MacBook, which limits input and output to a single USB-C port and a simple 3.5mm audio in/out jack, has been characterized by some as a move that’s antagonistic to the consumer. Critics point to the single port, as well as the performance limitations inherent in using an Intel Core M chipset for power management and fanless logic board design, as causes for complaint… Read More

    Intel Promises $300M To Boost The Representation Of Women And Minorities In Tech

    In an afternoon keynote at CES 2015, Intel‘s CEO Brian Krzanich bounced on stage to pass out some slightly platitudinous statements about the future of technology, and to bring the audience dancers, a cello, and what appeared to be a boy band, all fused to trippy lights. It was fun.   The most important part of the keynote came at the end, however, when Intel pledged to spend… Read More
