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

Limited Supply, Unknown Demand — The awkward launch of Apple Watch As had been rumored, Apple today confirmed that the roll-out for the Apple Watch is going to be quite different from product launches in the past.

“Tablet” - Medium — "Tablet" One thing that has struck me about living abroad in Europe is the ubiquity of the iPad. A lot of what has been said about Apple in recent months suggests that the device is destined to be a fad. But it almost seems like the opposite is true: it's maybe the most mainstream Apple product.

A Tale Of Two Wearables — The perception of Apple Watch vs. MagicBand Back in January 2013, an article by Brooks Barnes in The New York Times about a "magical" bracelet that Disney was developing piqued my interest. That bracelet, called MagicBand, not only launched, they're apparently every bit as magical as that early story suggested they would be.

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.

Steph Curry 1 for 6 from 3. Warriors still up 21. This won't end well.

@johnolilly and the Brass could have been another great one when they leave for China in 5 years...

@johnolilly so bad. A travesty they didn't go with New Orleans Brass. Would have been perfect.
