One of the greatest perks of being active on social media is the opportunity to meet folks I would never (ever) have the chance to meet otherwise.

TweetBy: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) I know what you’re thinking, “Learn from BlackBerry? Who said it will succeed? Why is BlackBerry in a place to teach anyone anything?” Good question. I thought you’d never ask. OK, so as you know, BlackBerry launched what it hopes will be the vehicle the company rides on its way to […]

TweetBy: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) People really hate when you tell them how to tweet, and rightfully so. Twitter is an open platform (or it used to be, but that is a topic for another time.) that entails writing a message of 140 characters max, and there are no rule books, so who made you the […]

While the following statement is going to sound funny when taken out of context, I am going to say it anyway. It can’t be easy to be Apple. Relax, I know how much money the company has and I know how far ahead of its competitors it is in the tablet space, but I still stick to my statement.

One of the common misconceptions in tech is that the product itself is what ultimately matters most in the success or failure of a company. If anyone proves that theory wrong, it’s Twitter.

TweetBy: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) Let me be very clear here. I am as guilty of saying the things I am going to list below as anyone. I “Live tweeted” (is that even a real thing?) the Apple announcement and let’s just say, multiple people asked me if Samsung was paying me to be anti-Apple. “We’re […]

Over the years since i started blogging, I have found myself writing a post for the sole purpose of sending it to someone the next time they ask me a question like “What is the point of Twitter?” or send me a message asking me to like their Facebook page. Well, this post is another one in the series.

So I have been using Google’s Nexus 7 tablet (sent to me by Google) for a month now, and I figured that by now, I know the device well enough to formulate an opinion and share that opinion with you. But first, a little background.

Let me start this post with a short story/disclosure. A while back I traveled across the world and stopped over on the way for a few hours in Italy. While the pizza there looked delicious, I found myself wandering into the electronics store in the local airport. There, in the middle of the store were the Bose QuietComfort 15 Noise Cancelling Headphones. Now, a little background. I am no audio expert and so I never owned any fancy earphones in the past. My older brother, however, is. He loves him some good sound and his house is lined with Bose everywhere you look.

One of the things I have noticed over the past few years is that technology and the billion dollar industries it creates have gone completely mainstream. While processors, screen resolutions, and data connectivity types were terms used by geeks only a few years back, now, the latest iPhone or Samsung Galaxy is a topic of discussion among pretty much all parts of the population.

Around the time of Apple’s developer conference WWDC every year, I am faced with a dilemma. Do I update my iPhone/iPad to the new version of iOS, which is in Beta for developers or do I wait till it is more stable and publicly available? Somehow, I always come up with the same answer and it involves my heart stopping for a few minuts while my precious iDevices come back to life. If you have updated an iPhone or iPad, you know exactly what I am talking about.
