    Google Studies How Much Interstitials Suck On Mobile

    How much do mobile users hate interstitial screens blocking their mobile browsing by urging them to down the native app instead?

Well, that and common sense when you think about the contrast between the aim of mobile computing (speed, convenience) and the point of interstitials (slow, distract). Read More

    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. IBM automated clerical tasks, SAP unified corporate financials, and Siebel digitized Rolodexes for relationship-driven salespeople. With that focus in mind, it’s no wonder that many of the world’s largest technology companies survive based on their ties to IT… Read More

  • Startups And The Big Lie

    Startups And The Big Lie

    A startup is hemorrhaging cash, and the VCs have yet to agree on terms for a capital infusion. The clock is ticking until deadpool, first weeks away then days. The founders, stress levels increasing to stratospheric levels, continue to sell their company to everyone, whether investors, employees, potential employees, or clients. They have little choice. Funding is contingent on growth, but… Read More

    Most people don’t understand how technology works. When they flip a light switch, or tap their phone, what happens next is essentially magic to them. Oh, they may be able to handwave a bit about electrons and volts and microprocessors and radio waves and packet-switched networks, but they’re just mouthing the words. They don’t actually understand any of those things. Read More

    How To Win The Day

    Hal Elrod was dead for six minutes. The car he was driving crashed head on into a truck. His girlfriend, sitting next to him, was unscratched. The roof of the car sliced open his head, causing brain damage. Bones in his face, his arm, all over his body were broken and he was in a coma for six days (during which time his girlfriend broke up with him). When he woke from his coma the doctors told… Read More

    Why Amazon And Entrepreneurs Are Bullish On Mexico

    Imagine a country with 100 million mobile phones, but just 15 percent of residents have a credit card.

    Qualtrics, In The Billion-Dollar Club, But Still An Outsider

    Qualtrics, whose online survey research platforms help more than 8,000 enterprise customers better understand both their employees and their customers, is a little unusual for a lot of reasons. For starters, it’s based in Provo, Utah, a state that has attracted more than $1 billion in venture funding over the last 18 months yet remains far from Silicon Valley’s bustling tech scene.

    It’s Time For “The Visual Internet”

    One of the amazing accomplishments of the smartphone is how it’s inspired us to take photos and share them — tons of them, with everyone. It’s estimated we have already taken more than a trillion photos in 2015. That would be more snapshots than have been taken in all of photographic history till now. We should be proud. But it isn’t enough to take a photo. We need to… Read More

    Does Ringly Have A Place In An Apple Watch World?

    The first thing I thought when I opened my Ringly box was that it smelled. Bad. Like electronics that had caught on fire and were then put out in some sort of chemical bath. But the company told me that the ring I received (an early review unit sent to reporters) was part of a bad “beta batch.” More recently, they replaced it with another. It didn’t smell nearly as bad.
