  • Feedly is getting an upgrade

    One of the first things I install on a new device or bookmark on a new machine is Feedly. It’s my rss/blog reader of choice and was the heir apparent after Google shut down Google Reader back in 2008 or something like that. Feedly has rolled out constant improvements over the past few years and…

  • The New Standard

    I’ve been elbow deep in Crypto Twitter for the past couple weeks and finally picked up a copy of The Bitcoin Standard by Saifedean Ammous.

  • It’s Electric

      The AK-47 manufacturer,¬†Kalashnikov, is bringing an electric car to market. Did you read that right? Do I need to say it again? Okay…. The AK-47 manufacturer,¬†Kalashnikov, is bringing an electric car to market. Truth is stranger than fiction, and this rad looking hatchback is no exception.

  • Remember, it’s a journey

    I didn’t read the news enough this week because of life happening, but believe me when I tell you, stuff happened. The biggest news from the blogosphere was leaks from Intel, absolutely ridiculous benchmarks on Threadripper, and crypto bouncing like a dead as f cat. After reading about the new Threadripper, i really want to…

  • Censored

      We’ve all known about the Great Firewall of China but this is a first for me. Google is, reportedly, standing up a censored version of it’s core service. I understand the Chinese market is massive and if you’re in tech and not there, then you will probably not be relevant in the next 10…

  • Your DNA Just Got Bought

        You’re at your family Thanksgiving party and that cousin from California busts out one of those DNA tests. Everyone is pumped and swabs their mouth without hesitation. The promise of knowing “Where I came from” is too much to pass up and we’ll have the results by Christmas. Weeks pass, now it’s Christmas…

  • An Uphill Battle

    Google isn’t playing games when it comes to Enterprise Cloud. They are Internet’s OG yet they find themselves in third place in a two horse race. Amazon and Microsoft are owning the space. While Google is late to the race, they aren’t out of it. If anything, they’re entering a mature market and they have…
