The Coming Urban Drone War

February 3, 2014

Drone technology may be the biggest threat to civilized society over the next twenty years

Picture a speeding criminal on the run who discovers a police cruiser behind it with its lights flashing. The driver rolls down the window and gently lets go of a handheld drone capable of going quite fast and firing a gun. While driving, he uses a smartphone to maneuver the camera-equipped drone next to the tire of the police cruiser where it fires a single shot which incapacitates the vehicle.

Blackberry's Smart Pivot to M2M

January 24, 2014

The machine to machine (M2M) market is growing rapidly – as sensors become cheaper to embed in our clothes, appliances, shipping containers and just about everything else. In fact, one estimate pegs the market as worth $88 billion in nine years from now. Hundreds of billions of sensors will soon be sold, presenting an opportunity like few others. More importantly, there is no market leader in the space big enough to block out everyone else.

Why You Should Be Bullish on Technology

January 22, 2014


In the past, the price of just about everything increased over time but thanks to technology, many products and services are getting progressively cheaper and in many cases, better. In the 1980s, you could have paid 25 cents per-minute for a domestic long-distance call and dollars per-minute for international long-distance. Not only has the price of a long-distance call dramatically decreased over time, today, IP communications assigns no per-minute cost to communicate. In fact, you can now use Skype to set up a free baby monitor a continent away with HD quality video and audio which puts the phone company's quality to shame.

New Huawei Ascend Mate 2 is a Big Deal

January 21, 2014


Do you remember when the best phone was the smallest and slimmest? It’s funny that at one time car keys were small and cell phones were big and then around ten years ago German car companies in particular started to make keys a bit shy of the size of some flip-phones. Then the market shifted directions when smartphones finally allowed decent web browsing.

It’s gotten to the point where many say when it comes to smartphones, bigger is better.

JetBlue Customer Care - Even Ponzi Would Be Horrified

January 7, 2014

Having been unfortunate enough to be part of an eight-hour weather-related delay as a passenger of flight #411 on January 4, 2014, my fellow JetBlue customers and I found out just how amazingly crappy the airline's logistics and service levels could be.

After we lost an entire work-day each, we waited yet another hour for luggage to come out - when it finally did it was for a different flight... A cancelled flight.

Frequent tweets to the airline and calls from passengers met with rude responses infuriating my these passengers who tweeted about their experiences.
