The Gillmor Gang — John Borthwick, Dan Farber, John Taschek, Robert Scoble, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — celebrated Office for iPad’s 12 million in sales and who knows in real traction i.e. subscriptions. The Amazon Fire debuted to shouts of thin and expensive, but surely what we need is a builtin HDMI switcher. Letterman’s retirement announcement hit some of us like a ton of bricks and… Read More

Gillmor Gang: Brain Chemistry

Tags: , , , , , , , , ,


gillmor-gang-test-pattern_excerpt

The Gillmor Gang — John Taschek, Keith Teare, Dan Farber, and Steve Gillmor — take the edge off of a slow week with a relaxed conversation about Instagram and Twitter direct messages, online anonymity, its effects on the brain, and Google’s reasons for cacheing Gmail images. Occasionally Farber disappears to throw another log on the fire.

In the chatroom, Moe Glitz asks the musical question: Do Hells Angels use Facebook? Keith does the entire show from China (where he’s more than almost famous) in his underpants. The budget deal is set, the Pope outpoints Snowden, and no one complains about a little political analysis. It was that kind of week. Life surprises even when it’s not trying.

Gillmor Gang: Daft Monopolists

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,


gillmor-gang-test-pattern_excerpt

The Gillmor Gang – John Taschek, Keith Teare, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor – act their age in the style of Steve Ballmer, who thinks he’s of an older time where the world’s not going. I’m not so sure he’s right about that, what with SnapChat taking a pass on $3 billion ephemeral oh-so-direct messages. Surely the snark social leader fits like a glove with the younger set, but at its core the underlying motives are straight out of Game of Thrones.

At least that’s what I’ve been told, not having caught up yet on TV To Go’s latest offerings. James Spader’s Breaking Badder act on NBC and Scandal’s cliffhanger a week may be symptoms of the New Hollywood as rendered in BYOB(inge) terms, but surely the table stakes are being set anew with Broadcast + 7 the new normal. Plenty going on for a slow week, yet even time for incomprehensible soccer and JSON threads. See you at Dreamforce.

Gillmor Gang: IPOed

Tags: , , , , , , , , ,


gillmor-gang-test-pattern_excerpt

The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, John Taschek, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — Sure, we talked about the Twitter IPO, about the Bitcoin Bust, about whether Apple is a hardware or software company, and other stuff. Looming in the background was the idea that our politics have atrophied yet more to complete decrepitude, that we could unring the bell of the election, that the collapse in Washington was nothing more than a preexisting condition.

It’s a dullard’s version of Chicken, and no matter how far we slide, there’s still more to go. But luckily, we have hashtags and social graphs to keep us amused while the republic goes under in the slowest possible version of realtime. I’m glad Ev’s a billionaire so we can get Track reinstalled. Waiting for the electrician, anyone?

Gillmor Gang: Sensorship

Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,


gillmor-gang-test-pattern_excerpt

The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Keith Teare, John Taschek, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — new iPhone + new OS = continued Apple domination. Twitter vacillates between NYSE and NASDAQ. Age of Context The Book ships as publishing gestation shrinks from 9 months to 2 weeks.

It is only toward the end of the show that someone in the chat notices @scobleizer isn’t wearing Google Glass. Apple keeps on piling up yardage, reminding us not only of Steve Jobs’ prophetic vision of the future, but his persistent hammerlock on our wallets.

Gillmor Gang: Inch by Inch

Tags: , , , , , , ,


gillmor-gang-test-pattern_excerpt

The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Dan Farber, John Taschek, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — added up the Apple announcements, the Twitter IPO, and why Chromecast’s Cloud-to-Device model will stick. No consensus on this last point, but since AirPlay does a little of both strategies, we’ll know soon enough.

The biometric capabilities and low-power bluetooth chip of the new iPhones may not seem a breakthrough, based as the tech is on well-trod ground. But mobile is about the signature of its omnipresence, and the thumbprint will save bucketloads of time that will endow the new habits with strategic signatures and business models they suggest. Meanwhile, I’m off to AutoRip me a new one.

Gillmor Gang: Running On Empty

Tags: , , , , , , , ,


gillmor-gang-test-pattern_excerpt

The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Dan Farber, John Taschek, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — why September 10 will be a turning point for Tim Cook, why the Microsoft/Nokia acquisition/Ballmer resignation had it backwards, why iWatch stands for software not hardware.

Confusion makes for interesting times, or something like that. We’re caught in a vortex of boredom, say some of us, waiting for rescue by a leader with a dream. But while we wait, the house of cards known as the technology business continues its dramatic push forward, with no end in sight. It’s a Golden Age of the Movies, a Renaissance of the Possible, a time to enjoy the show.

Gillmor Gang: Contextual Adults

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,


gillmor-gang-test-pattern_excerpt

The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, John Taschek, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — settle in for the Labor Day weekend with a tour of a busy news week. Stops along the way include iBeacon in iOS7, Twitter’s thin blue line, the politics of twerking, and devices, devices, devices.

Short takes on Bill Gates’ unlikely return, Apple’s iTrade-In offer, why Chromecast will change our habits, and Google’s Chromebook move in classrooms round out a lively end to summer. It’s a world where software is free and we spend our time saving up for the next shiny dongle.
