GP @GoogleVentures. A man of few words. Except when writing.

I currently have 30 minutes until my next meeting, I don't have time to sit down and write what I would consider to be a more traditional blog post.

It Would Be Weird If Apple *Wasn’t* Working On A Car — What's that in the distance? A bird? A plane? A Tesla? A minivan?! No, it's an Apple Car. Coming right at us! Multiple reports in the past week point to Apple now working on some kind of entrant into the automotive industry. The details seem muddled and in some cases, contradictory, but none of this should be surprising.

The Voice Of David Carr — To be honest, I'm still trying to wrap my head around this: last night, the last thing I read before going to bed was a David Carr column. This morning, I awoke to the news of his passing. He was 58 years old. I had only met David Carr a handful of times throughout the years.

White Spaces - Five Hundred Words - Medium — In my ongoing quest to come up with a way to write more, I've been trying to think about the things stopping me. Sure, there are big things such as not having enough time. But there are also little things. In some cases, literally. Take, for example, the text entry box on various writing services.

It’s Not Good Enough To Be Better — For the past several weeks, I've been forcing myself to get into Snapchat. I was never a fan of the one-to-one service, but I really like the concept behind Stories. It makes sense to me both why this exists and why it's getting massive.

Punxsutawney Jeff — Yesterday was Groundhog Day, the day Punxsutawney Phil is coaxed out of his warm, cozy hole to show himself to some demanding people. After he does his shadow business, it's right back into the hole. For some odd reason, this reminds me of Amazon. The company has become famous (infamous?)

Famous Titles - Five Hundred Words - Medium — There was a time in my blogging career where headlines were paramount. To be honest, I would regularly come up with a good title first and write a story based on that (and actually, this post may not be all that different). And I was a damn good headline writer.

Apple, The Oil Company? — 18 billion. Profit. One quarter. Pure insanity. How insane? It's the highest earnings for a company in a quarter... ever. And it sets Apple up to post the most earnings for a company in a year... ever.

The Information Behind the Cloud — While reading this interview yesterday with Techmeme founder Gabe Rivera, one quote stuck out above all else. On the topic of publications relying on bogus arguments about the tech industry: So it's a bunch of people not really knowing what they're talking about?

Whittling Down The MacBook To An iPad — Over two years ago, I wrote a review of the then-new 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro. The headline: We're Getting Very Close To The Perfect MacBook. "Very close" is the key phrase there. As great as that machine was/is, I knew it wasn't perfection in laptop form. Yet.
