    Car companies are now coming to MWC too

    There are four automotive manufacturers at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona this year: Daimler, BMW, Ford, and Peugeot. And if CES is any indicator, expect more to follow in the next few years. Peugeot is going the furthest in bringing a world-premiere concept car to MWC, the Peugeot Instinct. The car demonstrates the company’s partnership with the Samsung Artik Cloud IoT… Read More

  • Samsung jumps the shark with fake news

    Samsung jumps the shark with fake news

    Samsung just released a press statement declaring its Galaxy S7 edge as winning the best smartphone award at Mobile World Congress 2017. That didn’t happen. This is what really happened, and Samsung should retract this press release as it’s misleading and disingenuous. GSMA is the trade organizing that hosts Mobile World Congress and every year they host an awards ceremony… Read More

  • Reshopper is an app for parents to buy and sell used items

    Reshopper is an app for parents to buy and sell used items

    Once in a while I come across a company that seems like a complete no-brainer. An idea that induces a ‘why hasn’t this been done already’ moment. That was certainly the case when I jumped on a call with Aja Guldhammer Henderson, CEO of Reshopper, a Danish startup that has built a mobile app for parents to buy and sell used items. Read More

    Facebook’s new video app hits Samsung Smart TVs

    Facebook’s new video app is now available on Samsung Smart TVs – which makes Samsung the first platform to feature the social network’s latest application.

    Ambitious Alibaba takes aim at the kings of cloud computing

    When you think of the biggest cloud players in the world, one company you might not consider is Alibaba, the Chinese e-commerce giant that held a record $25 billion U.S. IPO in 2014. Alibaba entered the cloud computing business in 2009, just three years after Amazon launched its cloud division, AWS — and Alibaba’s cloud computing efforts are among the ambitious projects that… Read More

  • Google at MWC: Daydream trees, cherry blossom, and nougat smoothies

    Every year, Google mixes up its presence at MWC a bit. After a few years of handing out smoothies and Android pins inside one of the halls here in Barcelona, Google made the move outside in recent years. That works great when it’s warm, but on a chilly day, it doesn’t exactly make for a pleasant experience. Here is what Google had to offer this year. Read More

    Here’s what the head of Uber’s self-driving program wasn’t asked on stage today

    Uber-owned Otto’s co-founder Anthony Levandowski must be mightily relieved after an onstage Q&A here at the Mobile World Congress tradeshow passed by with zero awkward moments. For example, there was no mention of the fact his former employer is suing his current employer over allegations of IP theft… Read More

    Conversational AI is pushing deeper into enterprise with Workfit, a new startup promising to make conference call follow-ups and mid-meeting CRM updates as easy as playing a song or checking the weather on Google Home or Amazon Echo. Battery Ventures, Greycroft Partners, Salesforce Ventures and a number of angels joined together to finance a $5.5 million seed investment in the… Read More

    The back of Alcatel’s ridiculous new phone lights up to display notifications

    You know what people like? Lights. Brightly colored, flashing lights. Lights for notifications and lights for fun. Lights for all occasion. So, so many shiny lights. Lights like the lights on the back of Alcatel’s A5 LED, a fun feature on what is an otherwise middling handset. In a mobile show that saw the debut of BlackBerry’s KeyOne, the A5 has the fairly indistinct distinction… Read More
