Some stores don't seem to think much about their customers.
 
You really have to credit Fry's for the brilliant Samsung Chromebook 2 sales strategy.

I asked a clerk about connecting to WiFi, but he said only managers have the passwords and the networks are strictly for the service department.

Ah, but I found another. The Apple department. All the devices there are connected to secure network "Apple 2", with real, live Internet.

Seriously, Fry's should showcase for the next Microsoft anti-Chromebook ads. Because on the sales floor, without ever being setup with apps for offline access, #samsung   #chromebook2  -- and every other -- is a brick.

I used to own an Atari 800XL like the one you'll see in this video!

I know. The 800XL had nice (well...) graphics, with display interrupt and 8 sprites if I recall. Your graphics look like Apple IIc or ZX Spectrum...

Regardless, I liked it!

Growing the Community at Campus Tel Aviv

It’s been a busy and exciting 18 months since we opened Campus Tel Aviv. Campus is Google's space for entrepreneurs to learn, connect, and build companies that will change the world. Our goal is to provide entrepreneurs with unparalleled access to mentorship and training led by the local startup community, experienced entrepreneurs, and teams from Google. Campus Tel Aviv is part of a global network that includes Campus London, and more to come soon.

Over the last year and a half, we’ve done what any startup would do: launch, and improve things as we go along. We’ve hosted over 900 events and 13 cycles of our week-long Launchpad program with 200 startups. Over 60,000 participants have come through our doors to take part in Campus activities. We’ve listened to feedback from you -- entrepreneurs, developers, startups, and others in the Startup Nation community on how we can best focus our efforts. 

In a few weeks, Campus Tel Aviv is moving to a new space. We’re not changing our address - we're staying in the same building, but moving up (to the 34th floor, where the view is even better!) We’re reducing our square meters and shifting resources to new programs. We realised, for example, that the small meeting rooms at Campus were underutilized, and it made sense to focus less on physical space and put our resources into activities that will help more startups and entrepreneurs.

Along with our ongoing activities, we’re launching a series of new programs to bring unique perspectives from Google and technology leaders to more people:

Campus EDU: a series of one-day workshops on subjects of interest to the tech community, with speakers from Google and other organizations
Campus Office Hours and Start-up Tuesdays: focused mentorship to a broader audience (more startups)
Campus Center Stage: presentation & public speaking skills for women, as part of our commitment to helping increase diversity in Israel’s tech community
Campus YEP (Youth Empowerment Program): training programs to empower a younger audience, the next generation of entrepreneurs; 
Campus Talks: a series of events with leading figures in the global tech and business world, following the success of events with Robert Scoble and Dan Ariely. Coming up soon will be Saul Singer, co-author of “Israel: Start-Up Nation”.

We're also investing more in making Campus accessible to everyone, not just those who can join us in person. We’re upgrading our audio visual systems and will be filming many talks and sessions at Campus, and we’ll make them accessible on YouTube.

Lastly, we believe that entrepreneurship is thriving globally. We’re proud of the role that Israel’s Startup Nation has played, and we’re excited for the opportunities that lie ahead.. Through Google for Entrepreneurs, we’re focused on connecting entrepreneurs from Israel with Silicon Valley, London, and the global tech community. We’re also taking successful programs like Launchpad and Campus for Moms to countries beyond Israel.

We’re increasing our investment in Campus activities and we’re excited about the move upstairs to our new home - to learning more, growing more, and doing more for, and with, the tech community. We hope to see you soon at Campus!

The Campus Tel Aviv Team
