GP @GoogleVentures. On the road with @msquinn. A man of few words. Except when writing.

The New Television Bundle — Netflix. HBO. Amazon. Hulu. ESPN. Etc. I tweeted about this earlier, but I think it warrants a bit more discussion: with Amazon signing the former Top Gear crew to do a new show for Prime streaming, it sure seems like it will now be another key content destination.

“The New Television Bundle” by @mgsiegler "this is how it should be. You pay for what you actually want to watch."

Some extended thoughts on my tweets about the unbundling/rebundling of television from yesterday…

Making Hulu A Must-Have — Two words: live sports While it has been years since I cancelled my cable television subscription, I've never felt the urge to subscribe to Hulu's premium option. One big reason is the very same reason I hate cable: they want me to pay for a service and yet still be served advertising?

As previously noted, Hulu's premium service *if* they were to add live sports. Someone will (beyond ESPN).…

Apple Watch: Three Months In — I think this collection largely hits on most of what I would say about Apple Watch. I don't agree with everything, but directionally, it seems correct: Apple Watch is a mixed bag. I'm almost exactly three months into wearing the device. Yes, I've worn it every day in that span, which is clearly a good sign.

TL;DR Notifications and straps are great, all else seems pretty meh: @mgsiegler Apple Watch, Three Months In

The 9 Bullet Points of Doom for ESPN — A company nears a tipping point... In trying to explain why ESPN would cut ties with Keith Olbermann (and, previously, Bill Simmons - and soon, perhaps many other high-profile personalities), The Wall Street Journal dug up some fascinating numbers. Standing alone, such numbers are perhaps easy to gloss over.

Wild. @mgsiegler's been a VC longer than he was a blogger… "Challenge yourself", to do something new OR hone a craft

Some good advice from @mgsiegler, who has now been a VC longer than he was a blogger.…

On The Radio - 500ish Words - Medium — There's something different about hearing a song you love on the radio. It just sounds better. I know that sounds absolutely crazy. And, in a way, it is. I mean, a song is a song. It should sound the same no matter how you hear it.

Most ingenious thing Amex has done is stamp the check folds with logo. I swear every time I see it, my subconscious makes me pay with Amex.
