Twitter Launches Moments

Twitter has launched the clever “Moments” interface. The tab allows users to follow trending news and updates within a particular event. The simple tab is very accesible and intuitive for both newcomers and Twitter long-timers. While Moments is primarily an attempt to welcome new users who currently find Twitter unwieldy or unnecessary, it is also an example of a trend toward so-called “distributed content.” … When users follow a “moment,” like a football game or…

The Steve Jobs Movie

“What do you do? You’re not an engineer. You’re not a designer. You can’t put a hammer to a nail,” says Rogen’s Wozniak. “So how come 10 times in a day I read, ‘Steve Jobs is a genius’?” Responds Fassbender’s Jobs: “Musicians play their instruments. I play the orchestra.”   The trailer of the new Steve Jobs is simply amazing. It has already been seen by over 2 million people on YouTube alone. The film,…

Analyzing SEC Filings

A great way to polish your business plan or predict the strategic intent of key players is analyzing SEC filings. 10K reports present a yearly review of a company’s performance while 10Q filings go over quarterly performance. By law, public US corporations are required to disclose material information in a constant and timely fashion, so these reports are always interesting to read and contain good insights. SEC Live is a free tool that lets you…

No Innovation at WWDC 2015

Steve Jobs is dead and apparently so is the culture of innovation at Apple. Yesterday we experience one of the few WWDCs with absolutely no innovation and only incrementalism. Larry Ellison said it best when he referred to Apple’s future without Steve Jobs: Let’s go over some of the major announcements: Apple Music is the result of Beats acquisition and Apple’s new play in music  streaming to counter stagnating music downloads. This is a new…

The LG G4 is the Perfect Android Device

I’ve been playing around with the new LG G4 for some weeks now and my summary is simple: this is probably the best Android device you can buy. LG has executed marvelously a new strategy to bring life back into their mobile devices and, so far, all the latest flagship releases have been amazing. In this post, I want to analyze LG’s strategy and cast light into the LG G4’s most salient highlights. The Business…

Why Nginx?

  Nginx is a lightweight, high performance web server designed to deliver large amounts of static content quickly with efficient use of system resources. Nginx’s strong point is its ability to efficiently serve static content, like plain HTML and media files. Some consider it a less than ideal server for dynamic content. – Linode.com   If you’re using Apache, you’re missing out. Nginx is a small, lesser known Russian Web Server that is taking the…

Why I’m not Buying an Apple Watch

The Apple watch makes no compromises and is a worst product for that very reason. I love Apple products. Actually I’ve been a long-time fan since the 80s. I stood in line for the first iPhone, the first iPad, you name it. My Performa and G4 machines actually had names! But I’m not feeling it this time. Actually I think the Apple watch is the worst designed product in Apple’s history. To me, this smart…

Smart Watches: To Wear or not to Wear?

The new Android operating system for wearables looks great. And, apparently, is a clear signal of new things to come in the industry. Android Wear might become the next new and shiny toy for your teenagers but it won’t move the needle for businesses in the next couple of years. Why, you might ask? Well, in this new device class the monetization king will be micro content (a.k.a notifications). And no social network (except perhaps…

The New Myspace is a Clear Winner

The new myspace looks and feels like a premium product. I just configured my account a couple of hours ago and so far the experience has been great. A clean and stylish design goes a long way and the myspace product team placed a high bet on a very “classy” design that makes you feel as drifting in a magazine. The music selection is superb (for me it has been better than Spotify so far).…
