A few weeks ago I started noticing adverts appearing in my Facebook feed from Uber, apparently recruiting for drivers in Las Vegas. I thought to myself that was odd because I'd read that legislation effectively prevents Uber from operating in Nevada. I assumed the ad I saw on Facebook was [...]

Every startup wants to grow big and grow fast, so it was no surprise that a conference this week in San Francisco about growth and distribution for startups was standing-room only. I'm so done with tech conferences, but was very glad I got to go to this one. It was [...]

VideoMicrosoft has just announced Satya Nadella as their new CEO. I'm glad to see them pick an internal candidate, and one that truly understands their business. It's fitting he's been heading up their cloud division, and before that worked on business products, servers, and online services. This means he has first-hand [...]

There's a plethora of social networks. One that aim to connect friends and family, close friends, school friends, colleagues, professionals, travelers, gay men, lesbians; that's just a few of the many.

I love Android, particularly the latest release, KitKat. It's come a long way from  my first Android phone, the T-Mobile G1 (the one with the weird flip out QWERTY keyboard). My current Android phone - the Motorola X - is superb, with a stunning display, great camera and a gigantic [...]
