It is funny to watch regulators try to catch up with Facebook and Google. These days it is about how they filter news results. Which sort of shows how little anyone understands the tech involved. Of course Facebook and Google’s algorithms are biased! By definition any system which regulates a flow cannot be objective and fair. There is no 50-50 […]
Let’s take a typical day of little Miss X, CEO of an exciting new startup.
Little Miss X wakes up from a nightmare. She jots down what she remembers of it in a diary next to her bed to take to her shrink. This is information just for the two of them. Clear cut case. She doesn’t put it anywhere else […]
I loved and sold graphic tablets for many years. Essentially a high tech slab of plastic, it offers “the natural way” to interact with technology. I always started my presentations by saying that “nobody was born with a computer mouse in their hand” and audiences nodded. Half of them suffered from carpal tunnel syndrome or thought they did. Everyone was […]
If there was someone on the planet that didn’t know that the usual way FBI and Apple solve these things is in secret, we all know it now. Both parties involved admitted that usually when the FBI wants the contents of a phone, Apple has always played along and told nobody about it.

“Chat? That is for my teenage daughter!” Yeah, right. Only while you are busy pretending to be serious, she and her entire generation are learning communication skills you need to work on. Some best practices to think about:
It is easier! From a scientific point of view it is well established that we use much less energy processing computer related situations […]
My friend James is probably the smartest person I know. Whether he is teaching himself music in order to do the soundtrack to an amazing documentary of his, building innovative mammal free zones in New Zealand, riding a motorbike or in Madagascar fighting the Asian toad.
The what? When a modern human comes across something unknown, we Google it. Just like […]
Yannis Antetokounpbo is not your average Greek. Born in a poor neighborhood of Athens. Nigerian parents. 2.11m tall and with amazing physique, he is a wonder to watch whether it is in the Greek all star game, Team Africa or the NBA. A young man with a great smile he can get Nigerians, Greek and people from Milwaukee excited. At the same time!
When Dirk […]
You probably rushed to dismiss it. After all, in this globalized world it seems counterintuitive that Apple should produce iPhones entirely in the US. Some would say impossible. And it is Donald Trump saying it, the man is ridiculous almost 24/7.
Now think about it again. Cost? Yeah, sure it would be more expensive to produce in America but Apple has the […]
Let’s say you want to plan an in store activity for a tech product. “We have thirty stores all over Greece!” beams the person you are talking with. Here are a few questions to ask before setting out your promotional strategy.
