Listen up, folks. I am not a big fan of product leaks or Apple rumors. I mean, we all know that prior to every big Apple launches of any kind, the rumor mill goes into high gear. How often are those rumors accurate? Not very often…
Listen, I have no intention of starting an iOS vs Android debate here so if that is why you opened this article, allow me to introduce you to the little X in the corner… I use an iPhone 5S as my daily phone and until recently, there was no way I was going to replace that with an Android device.
An Interview with Legendary Apple Co-Founder, Steve Wozniak about Wearables and The Internet of Things
How does one even start the blog post in which he interviews the legendary Steve Wozniak? I mean, we are all guilty of using phrases like “revolutionize this industry”, “make the world a better place.”, and “make a dent in the universe”, but how many of us really do it? Not that many. I think we can all agree that the number of people who have influenced the world of technology on the level that Woz has, can be counted on one hand.

Yesterday, Umoove launched The Umoove Experience. Two questions I get quite often and especially in the last 24 hours are:
What the heck do you do?
What is your connection to Umoove?
I know, such a dramatic title, but really, this Snapchat phenomenon has been boggling my mind for months. Hold up a second here. I am not talking about Snapchat the business and why Facebook and Google want to buy it for billions. I am not even talking about why Snapchat was actually brilliant to turn those offers down.
I think it is safe to say that if you spend any time on the social web, in the VoIP industry, or most recently, in the world of personal fitness, you have heard the name Jeff Pulver a zillion times. To explain and describe Jeff in a blog post is practically impossible. In fact, even to cover all his accomplishments alone in a blog post would be quite difficult.
OK, let’s jump right in. I had a chance to test out Google Glass last week. I have to admit, I can’t remember the last time I wanted to try a new device as much as Google Glass. The first thing I noticed about Glass is that there is an unprecedented amount of Buzz surrounding its existence. Everyone was staring, asking questions, pointing, and snapping pictures. It’s as if, someone had sat with every person in my vicinity five minutes before and explained to everyone that “In a few minutes, there will be a man wearing something on his face that represents the future. You are going to want to take pictures because you won’t get another chance”.
It has been over 6 years since I picked up my virtual pen to start my first blog post. Throughout those years, there has been a small group of elite journalists who have served as a role model and inspired me to keep writing. This group includes names like David Pogue, MG Siegler, Joshua Topolsky, and Robin Wauters. I have been following Robin for years and I believe I first encountered his work when he was just getting started at TechCrunch.
When Apple introduced the iPad Mini, it was the first ever Apple announced that sparked an emotional reaction from your truly. No, it was not excitement or happiness that the company finally reversed a policy put in place by the late Steve Jobs that there is no room for a smaller tablet in the Apple portfolio. My reaction to the iPad Mini announcement was actually disappointment and frustration, maybe even borderline anger.
Please forgive me if this post comes off as a rant, but enough is enough. Every few months, a new handset/mobile platform comes out and the same claims are repeated by the pundits. “Too little, too late”. Apple and Google own the mobile market and that can’t change. And every time I read those words, I realize just how fast people forget.
