Back in August I posted about Helio being acquired by Virgin Mobile closing its doors and felt that in the long run it would be a good thing for users, since the cool of Helio’s design would finally match the cool of the Virgin’s mobile packages. After seeing the G1, I realized that Google needs …

Just read a post on TechCrunch where John Biggs writes that he believes the new G1 is the device that will help users view their cell as their computer. I have posted about this before here & here and agree that G1 and Android are a part of the inevitable march towards this new paradigm. …

This past weekend I was in Aspen for the 41st annual Ruggerfest. I’ve been attending this rugby tournament for the past 24 years and recommend it to anyone who has even the smallest interest in Rugby. Rugby is one of the most aggressive niche sports in the world and as with any niche, it has …

After watching the TechCrunch round table on the future of mobile, I’ve been thinking a lot about the browser. It was unanimous at that meeting that the browser is going to be the killer application for the mobile world and I realized that the browser is something I really don’t think too much about or …

I have been a longtime fan of Skype since I read a Wired article where the founders were hiding in Europe to avoid being served a subpoena. The service took off in Europe first with many business people including a Skype number on their business card. I was surprised in 05 when eBay bought Skype …
