iMac With Retina 5K Display First Impressions: A Screen In Which To Lose Oneself

Oct 18, 10:40PM

imac-retina Apple’s new iMac boasts a screen with an almost preposterous resolution of 5180×2880 pixels, which makes it the world’s highest resolution display. The screen is the key ingredient here, despite changes under the hood, and after a couple of days of use, it’s still the screen that (stating the obvious here) catches my eye. Amid the flurry and elbow-throwing of the… Read More

A Guide To Co-Leadership: Why It's Hard, Why It's Good, And How To Make It Work

Oct 18, 9:00PM

picardriker In September Larry Ellison stepped down from the helm at Oracle and appointed a co-CEO pair as his successors. Articles about the announcement spoke of such dual arrangements in discouraging and doubtful tones. Meanwhile, in NYC, a well-regarded VC recently told me that she thought at least 50 percent of early-stage startup failures are rooted in co-founder conflicts. Read More

Bag Week: Daame Bags

Oct 18, 7:20PM

IMG_4809-2 While I can’t say that Daame Bags are the best daame bags we’ve tested (see what I did there?), I can say that they are definitely an interesting rethinking of the women’s laptop bag. We tested two types – a wide leather laptop tote and other 13-inch model. I showed both of these to a human woman, my wife, who said that she liked the elegant and spare design but noted… Read More

Are American Tech Companies Disloyal?

Oct 18, 7:17PM

14712593911_88a984bf8b_o FBI Director James Comey had some choice words this week for startups and technology companies about their increasing use of encryption and their responsibilities to law enforcement. Speaking at Brookings, Comey argued that “…if the challenges of real-time interception threaten to leave us in the dark, encryption threatens to lead all of us to a very dark place.” He… Read More

Handbook For A New Era Of Crowdfunding

Oct 18, 7:00PM

handbook Ever been to Indiegogo? Kickstarter? Spend any cash? What’d you leave with? Why does anyone buy a product that doesn’t exist yet…and may never exist? On the surface, crowdfunding seems to defy logic. Economists find the phenomenon of crowdfunding startling. If you think like an economist, crowdfunding shouldn’t work. But it does. And those who understand why it works… Read More

#Gamergate Shows Tech Needs Far Better Algorithms

Oct 18, 6:00PM

pipes If Gamergate teaches us anything — beyond, of course, vastly obvious observations about the toxicity of certain Internet demographics (which is hardly new news) — it’s that algorithms and formulaic behaviour can and are being gamed. Read More

The Disrupt Europe Hackathon Kicks Off At Old Billingsgate In London

Oct 18, 5:04PM

hackathon The Disrupt Europe hackathon began just a few hours ago at Old Billingsgate in London. Participants are now gathered in The Vault, the venue’s ominously-named underground area — but earlier, when everyone was still waiting for the doors to open, Mike Butcher and I walked the line and talked to a few of the hackers about why they’d came and what they’re planning to… Read More

Convergence In The Internet Of Things Is Priming The Tech World For A Major Cultural Shift

Oct 18, 3:00PM

highways To anyone who is tuned into the tech world, it should not come as earth shattering news that machine-to-machine (M2M) technology and the Internet of Things have hit a major convergence point in the tech industry. What is fairly new however is that the two have become so closely intertwined with each other that you can no longer think about one without thinking of the other. Read More

You Too May Be A Victim Of Developaralysis

Oct 18, 1:00PM

hurt-locker Dear developers: Do you feel insecure because you’re only fluent in a mere eight programming languages used across three families of devices? Does exposure to yet another JavaScript framework make you shudder and wince? Have you postponed a pet project because you couldn’t figure out which cloud platform would be best for it? You too may suffer from Developaralysis. Be afraid. There… Read More

Snapchat Ads Are Probably Cooler Than Facebook's, But Still Not Cool

Oct 18, 10:44AM

snapchatshades Prepare for ads on Snapchat, bruh! The company announced on Friday that users will start receiving ads from brands under the Recent Updates section of the app. This is the same portion of the Snapchat inbox where you find Stories, a product that threads together multiple snaps (both video or photo) into one, long snap. The ads are opt-in, in that you don’t actually have to watch them if… Read More

Bag Week: The Pad & Quill Attache

Oct 18, 9:28AM

Pad & Quill Side Detail If life was like Toy Story, and when we fell asleep, all of our inanimate objects suddenly came to life, the Pad & Quill Attache bag would be some super combo of both Woody and Buzz Lightyear. Socially, this bag would be the head honcho. With a beautiful, hand-crafted (and signed by that hand) leather exterior, the Attache laptop bag feels slightly Old-World. It’s a classic,… Read More

Bitcoin 2.0 Crowdfunding Is Real Crowdfunding

Oct 17, 11:00PM

bitcoin-mountain-rise In the past few months we’ve been hearing a lot about how bitcoin’s underlying technology is going to revolutionize not only our monetary system, but also notary services, DNS, authentication, intellectual property ownership and data storage.

Oct 17, 9:22PM

IMG_9852 The new Herschel fall lineup includes the Heritage we reviewed earlier in bag week, but there are also new looks for the Little America.
