Great read

Ben is my new favorite tech pundit -- particularly since he is acutely aware of trends in Asia
There may be a certain financial sense in buying Oculus, but to me it suggests that Mark Zuckerberg still doesn't understand why mobile matters.

Useful!
 
The photos from your phone, now one click away

Unless you’re a budding Ansel Adams, odds are you take most of your photos using your phone. And whether it’s photos of your hiking trip or a night out, sending photos to friends and family just got easier. Starting today, you can save time and insert your Auto Backup photos from your phone into Gmail messages on the web using the new Insert Photo button: https://goo.gl/hXpcWl

I doubt there are many readers so interested in the affairs of their neighboring countries that they would want to read an overseas paper. However, the consolidation might make it easier to lure advertisers, who, in Southeast Asia, are shifting increasing portions of their budget to digital initiatives."
