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

Nintendo’s 1-Up - 500 Words - Medium — "I think that for most of you here today, our alliance may have been unexpected." That was Nintendo President Satoru Iwata, in a press release a couple weeks ago announcing his company's partnership with DeNA to bring Nintendo IP to smartphone games. This was a shock to many folks -  though not all of us.

The Facebook Federation — Reading over the coverage of F8 this week, one thing is clear: Facebook the social network isn't very interesting anymore. I think we're on the other side of its peak, even if we can't perceive that just yet. The interesting parts of Facebook are now Messenger, Instagram, WhatsApp, and Oculus.

Peering Into Far-Off Lands — In last summer's film Interstellar, Doyle (Wes Bentley) is trying to explain to Cooper (Matthew McConaughey) how they're able to receive transmissions from far away using a nearby wormhole: Doyle: Every time we come around, we receive images from the other side of the foreign galaxy. Cooper: Like swinging a periscope around.

A Shocking Change *Is* Happening — The end of cable television is well underway. Seemingly with each passing day, there is a new story about massive impending changes coming to the cable television industry. I tweet about these and many people argue. So I figured I'd put some quick thoughts down while also testing Medium's new mobile writing capabilities!

The Upside Of Slower — The insanity of the new MacBook making you angry Two steps forward, one step back. In the history of Apple product iteration, we see this time and time again. The iMac gets insanely thin, but no optical drive. The iPad 3 gets a retina display, but is slightly heavier.

15 Quick Thoughts On Today’s Apple Watch Event

Apple’s Fork Into Fashion — We're now mere hours away from the proper unveiling of Apple Watch. Not the tease, the full monty. Having read all the various takes over the past week, I think we're covered. It's either going to be a massive success or a huge flop. Unless, of course, it's a middling success.

Spring Is Coming — The potential domino effect of 'HBO Now' Perhaps the most beautiful paragraph I've read this year, courtesy of a scoop by Michael Learmonth: When it launches, consumers will be able to subscribe to HBO Now directly from HBO for the first time, rather than through a cable, satellite or telco TV distributor such as Comcast or Verizon.

At first glance, this new Medium editor is exactly the type of thing I’ve been looking for. I… — At first glance, this new Medium editor is exactly the type of thing I've been looking for. 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.
