The most epic & insightful interview I have done with Horace Dediu founder of asymco & research fellow of Clayton Christensen, also known for being one of the top analysts on Apple in the world. It's a three parter and it is a dream come true for me as I am a fan of his two podcasts: The Critical Path and Asymcar.

Interesting piece on the Apple Watch numbers after it has been launched. Once again, Apple is defining the category.
Now that the Apple Watch's launch is behind us, we may finally have the opportunity to study its (early) impact. The lack of data certainly poses a challenge as Apple has declined to reveal sales figures of its new wearable. However, there are public resources, notably Google Trends, that could give us some measure of insight about how this launch compared to those of the iPhone and iPad.

To those dumb Singaporean parents out there who think that programming or IT is a bad job (or constantly "psycho" your kids that a IT job will be outsourced), please note that successful people can code better than our engineers. Our Prime Minister can code in C++, and has taken an interest in one of the modern languages: Haskell.

Coding is a way of thinking and should be taught. I still enjoy programming today but over weekends, but have left my C++, Fortran and Java days behind. The only leisure programming I do is with Ruby on Rails, python and Swift on iOS. #Singapore  
Ladies and Gentlemen, good evening and welcome to Singapore! At a time where grey clouds are hovering over the world economy, we are lucky. Firstly, there were no grey clouds in the sky this evening. Secondly, the tech industry is one of the bright spots in the world.

Thanks for this Bernard, there is a lot of misinformation out there regarding the swiftly changing fields of ICT and education so it's actually understandable that some appear to be "dumb", actually though, they're just not so well informed... Thanks again for adding information to the conversation to help ameliorate this-
