Get away from me, you pig!
Donald Sterling, to his wife, in court no less.
This is starting to feel like another NBA team is slipping away from Steve Ballmer. We’ll see.
It’s better for us to have an industry-wide shared platform than to be divided. I don’t want to get to a ‘Prodigy and CompuServe’ of the Internet of Things.
Rob Chandhok, senior vice president of Qualcomm, comparing the competing standards groups to walled-off online services in the 1990s. Not mentioned, of course, is that another walled-off online service, America Online, came around and crushed them both. Weird analogy to draw.
Update from Chandhok on Twitter: Not a Tumblr dude but @parislemon, if you want to dissect my quote on #IoT we can discuss here.. was drawing analogy to Web disruption:-)
Yes, I believe we’re entering a time of decline for driving itself — certainly amongst the younger generations. It may be hard to see now because our world (especially in the U.S.) is so car-centric. But the pieces are coming into place that makes owning a car not only less attractive, but often unnecessary.
Sure, it will hit dense urban areas first. But again, I see no reason why this doesn’t spread to all but the most remote reaches of the country. Things tend to sound crazy before they’re suddenly reality.
No, I believe that increasingly, they don’t care about driving anything. But maybe they will care what they’re driven in at certain times.
(This will obviously be true in denser cities at first. But I see no reason why this doesn’t spread to suburbs as well eventually.)
There are a few things I have witnessed becoming obsolete in the past few years, the first being autographs. I haven’t been asked for an autograph since the invention of the iPhone with a front-facing camera. The only memento ‘kids these days’ want is a selfie. It’s part of the new currency, which seems to be ‘how many followers you have on Instagram.’
