GP @GoogleVentures. Columnist @TechCrunch. The artist formerly known as @ParisLemon. A man of few words. Except when writing.

The Oddness Of Unboxing — I have this weird problem which a lot of people I know in the tech scene won't find all that weird but nearly every single other person I know will. I cannot open anything I get without first taking a picture of it in its box.

A Few Thoughts On WatchKit And The Initial Apple Watch — The second card has been turned over. A couple months after Apple Watch was unveiled to the world, we now get a full look into WatchKit, the SDK that will dictate what we can actually do with the Apple Watch - both as developers and users - when it's launched at some point in "early" 2015.

The goal is to become HBO faster than HBO can... — The goal is to become HBO faster than HBO can become us.-- Ted Sarandos, Netflix's chief content officer, speaking to GQ for a profile of Netflix chief Reed Hastings. This will go down as the year that HBO either made the right choice or the wrong choice not to go after the stand-alone Netflix model.

I’ll stand a little bit harsh, I don’t see it as... — I'll stand a little bit harsh, I don't see it as flattery. When you're doing something for the first time, you don't know it's gonna work, you spend 7 or 8 years working on something, and then it's copied. I think it is really straightforward. It is theft and it is lazy.

On Magazines and the iPad — Justin Williams is exactly right about the horrible state of magazines on the iPad today. Oh. He wrote this in 2011? Shit. Well then I'm exactly right on the horrible state of magazines on the iPad today. Oh. I wrote this in 2012? Fuck. Seriously guys, pull your heads out of your asses or die trying.

The Mountain And The Viper — The iPhone 6 Plus and the iPhone 6 After much deliberation, I decided to buy the iPhone 6 Plus on opening day. But a shipping mishap altered my fate, and I found myself the owner of an iPhone 6 instead. A few days later, the 6 Plus came.

Bill Simmons, Weasels, and Jackals — A week later, I still find myself thinking about ESPN's suspension of Bill Simmons. The fact that it's based on what was said on a podcast. The fact that Simmons is now effectively muzzled and can't say a word about the suspension (he can't even use his own Twitter account, let alone podcast).

Interstellar - Posters Check out... — filmhabits: Interstellar - Posters Check out the trailer here. Each poster better than the last.

The Plan To Save RadioShack — A few days after the launch of the latest iPhone and we still have lines out the doors of Apple Stores around the world. I was in this one on Friday. It truly was insane. This stands in stark contrast to the recent news about RadioShack.

Good, Better, Best, Best Plus — As I noted on Twitter a few days ago, one of the weirdest things about this iPhone upgrade cycle is how hard it is to choose which device to get. I feel like I know exactly which of the "millions" of permutations of the Apple Watch I want (this one).

Though the old iPad Air keyboard cases seem to mainly work fine with iPad Air 2...

To all asking: it's the new Logitech Keys-To-Go. (Giving it a shot since there is no official iPad Air 2 keyboard just yet.)

@johnolilly pretty good. will take getting used to as it's sorta squishy. I think I still prefer the keyboard case but this is SO light.

Drowning my sorrows by trying out this thing. But soon, with beer.
