    Gillmor Gang: Sensorship

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Keith Teare, John Taschek, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — new iPhone + new OS = continued Apple domination. Twitter vacillates between NYSE and NASDAQ. Age of Context The Book ships as publishing gestation shrinks from 9 months to 2 weeks. It is only toward the end of the show that someone in the chat notices @scobleizer isn't wearing Google Glass. Apple… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Under My Thumb

    Gillmor Gang: Under My Thumb

    The Gillmor Gang — John Borthwick, Robert Scoble, Danny Sullivan, John Taschek, and Steve Gillmor — collected iPhone 5's from the corners of the tech world. Danny Sullivan ordered the elusive gold one at midnight in L.A., Scoble hit the midtown Apple Store in the Big Apple, John Borthwick got his via the betaworks diplomatic pouch, and John Taschek, well, Android Boy passed. After the show… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Inch by Inch

    Gillmor Gang: Inch by Inch

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Dan Farber, John Taschek, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — added up the Apple announcements, the Twitter IPO, and why Chromecast's Cloud-to-Device model will stick. No consensus on this last point, but since AirPlay does a little of both strategies, we'll know soon enough. The biometric capabilities and low-power bluetooth chip of the new iPhones may not… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Running On Empty

    Gillmor Gang: Running On Empty

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Dan Farber, John Taschek, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — why September 10 will be a turning point for Tim Cook, why the Microsoft/Nokia acquisition/Ballmer resignation had it backwards, why iWatch stands for software not hardware. Confusion makes for interesting times, or something like that. We're caught in a vortex of boredom, say some of us, waiting… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Contextual Adults

    Gillmor Gang: Contextual Adults

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, John Taschek, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — settle in for the Labor Day weekend with a tour of a busy news week. Stops along the way include iBeacon in iOS7, Twitter's thin blue line, the politics of twerking, and devices, devices, devices. Short takes on Bill Gates' unlikely return, Apple's iTrade-In offer, why Chromecast will change our… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Watching the River Flow

    Gillmor Gang: Watching the River Flow

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Dan Farber, Kevin Marks, Doc Searls, and Steve Gillmor — digest the resignation of Steve Ballmer and its potential impact on the direction of the Post-PC Era. Whether he was pushed by Bill Gates or what, it's clear something changed in the last few days. Just how or who can do better will soon be apparent, as Ballmer's lame duck term has been accelerated by a… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Drunken Avatars

    Gillmor Gang: Drunken Avatars

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Dan Farber, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — turned what seemed like a slow news week into a tour of emergent hardware and big tech ideas. A Down-Under visitor to Robert Scoble's studio showed us how he used a 3D printer to prototype a Steadicam-like handheld image stabilizer. Closer to home, we handicapped Elon Musk's HyperLoop project, the… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: I Spy

    Gillmor Gang: I Spy

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Doc Searls, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — well, let's just say this show went to some very strange places. Kangaroo balls, Google auto-urinary services, the real reason Jeff Bezos bought a newspaper, and other details of the Lull before the Next Storm. Much to be entertained with, but bolstered by some serious business about the tradeoffs… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: What's Up Doc

    Gillmor Gang: What’s Up Doc

    The Gillmor Gang — Bret Taylor, Robert Scoble, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — gather in real time to try out Bret's new startup, Quip. The last time we saw Bret, he was selling Friendfeed to Facebook and becoming CTO. Now, he's back (sporting Marc Benioff as one of his investors) at the intersection of mobile and collaboration. As if Microsoft didn't already have enough… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Christmas in July

    Gillmor Gang: Christmas in July

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — celebrate Google's gift to StreamTV. ChromeCast is cheap, small, simple, and extensible, just in time to kickoff the run up to Apple's big move to the Big Screen. It's a win-win for everybody involved, except maybe Microsoft and its XBox offering. Suddenly 3 screens and the cloud has shrunk to 2, or maybe… Read More

 
  • Gillmor Gang: IBeacon & Eggs

    Gillmor Gang: iBeacon & Eggs

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, John Borthwick, Keith Teare, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — woke up, fell out of bed, dragged a comb filter across our head. Television is going streamland in a big way, and the Emmy nominations of Netflix' House of Cards are but the most obvious indicator of the transformation. And what Apple has in store for us is becoming tangibly clear based on its dance… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Batteries Not Included

    Gillmor Gang: Batteries Not Included

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Dan Farber, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — talked Microsoft reorg and the chance it might make a difference. No one is underestimating the power of the Windows giant, but rearranging the deck chairs may not move the needle enough to matter. With Office subsumed in one group and Windows in another, Steve Ballmer has traded one fiefdom for a more amorphous one… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Interdependance Day

    Gillmor Gang: Interdependence Day

    The Gillmor Gang — John Borthwick, Robert Scoble, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — marvel at the mutually assured creation of a partnership between Larry Ellison's Oracle and Marc Benioff's Salesforce.com. Few would have predicted such a stunning partnership just a few years ago, but the crescendoing intersection of cloud, social, and mobile has borne sudden fruit. The only… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Cider House Rules

    Gillmor Gang: Cider House Rules

    The Gillmor Gang — Dan Farber, Robert Scoble, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — absorb the WWDC keynote. iOS7, OS/10 Mavericks, Macbook Air refresh, and iTunes Radio were the big bullets, but underlying the event was the resurgence of Apple as the leader in setting the agenda. Not everyone buys this perspective, of course. @scobleizer sees this as the assignment of RIM and Microsoft to… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Back in the USSR

    Gillmor Gang: Back in the USSR

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — view the world through PRISM glasses. We, or me, couldn't help wondering what part of surpised we are at the idea we're being monitored and scraped within an inch of our metadata. It's hard to tell whether we're worried about losing our individual freedoms, or having to do the hard work of balancing the tradeoffs… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Wake Up Call

    Gillmor Gang: Wake Up Call

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Keith Teare, John Taschek, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — recorded early on a Thursday morning, flush with Apple CEO Tim Cook's read-between-the-lines performance at D11. Cook took some 80 minutes to say very little, or so say the pundits and Wall Street spinners. But the Gang found plenty to decrypt, including thoughts on Apple TV, wearable computing, value… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Parlor Games & Metaphones

    Gillmor Gang: Parlor Games & Metaphones

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, John Taschek, and Steve Gillmor — neatly sidestepped the Yahoo Tumblr acquisition and segued into the wonderful world of messaging. As Facebook Home settles into a cot at the homeless shelter, Google is revving up for an all-out assault on the service suite. Google Glass is just the tip of the iceberg; below the waterline, the search… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Live from Betaday

    Gillmor Gang: Live From Betaday

    This Gillmor Gang was recorded live at betaday, the betaworks annual gathering in New York. The Gillmor Gang included John Borthwick, Robert Scoble, Douglas Rushkoff, Paul Davison, and Steve Gillmor. Enjoy. Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Windows Too Late

    Gillmor Gang: Windows Too Late

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, John Taschek, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — broke from the gate and never let up in a barnburner of a show about the post-Jobs era. Will Google assume the mantle of leadership from an aging Apple, or is this just an evolutionary step along across the stream of innovation triggered by the iPhone/iPad? There's plenty of data on both sides of… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Glass Onion

    Gillmor Gang: Glass Onion

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — well, we talked Google Glass. @scobleizer has certainly made the case for the life-altering shower-taking scenarios, but what the Gang got into was what happens next. Do we wait for the actual launch early next year, or is the die already cast with this alpha rollout? One thing for sure: there's plenty to unravel… Read More
