    The obsession with voice assistant speakers needs a wake-up call

    The obsession with voice assistant speakers needs a wake-up call

    I remember an evening six years ago. I was sitting with colleagues. The new iPhone around, we'd met this new tech marvel named Siri. She was witty and clever. We could throw any question at her, and she'd respond back with a witty response. As we Indians are used to describing our leisure activity, Siri was 'time pass'. But that was the beginning of our new found obsession of talking to machines, but more importantly see them respond. It's the ultimate fantasy of the '80s kid. More →

    iPad Pro: The real strength of the refreshed productivity tablet from Apple

    For long, the tech world has attempted a single solution for efficient mobile productivity. And that’s when you realize the world isn’t ideal. Neither are consumers’ needs specific.

    Here’s how Facebook is transforming the new age workplace

    Here’s how Facebook is transforming the new age workplace

    There's a lot that's changed over the years. I’d rather just let you ponder over life 10 years ago. In 2007, the iPhone was launched, but neither Apple nor the iPhone is the focus of this story. But instead, the culture of apps that followed. For good or for worse, life as we know it just changed. For any or everything we need today, there's ideally an app. That didn't impact work. Until now. More →

    No, I don’t WannaCry, लेकिन हमारे इर्द गिर्द फैले दर्द के लिए हम सभी सामूहिक रूप से ज़िम्मेदार हैं

    कभी न कभी, हम सभी एक बार ऐसे घटनाक्रमों से जरुर गुजरते हैं जो हमें सुरक्षा से जुड़े मामलों पर अपना ध्यान केंद्रित करने को मजबूर कर देते हैं। पिछले एक सप्ताह से हम ऐसे ही एक घटनाक्रम से गुजर रहे हैं, जिसे WannaCry नाम दिया गया है, यह एक ransomware कार्यक्रम है जिसने लगभग 99 देशों में 230,000 सिस्टम्स को प्रभावित किया है। और हमारे करीब ही हमारे देश की ही आंध्र प्रदेश पुलिस इस अटैक से प्रभावित हो चुकी है। और दुनियाभर में ये कार्यक्रम इन सभी गैर सरकारी और सरकारी सस्थाओं को प्रभावित कर चुका है जिनमें रूस के आंतरिक मामलों के मंत्रालय के साथ, रूस की रेलवे, निसान, रीनॉल्ट, टेलीफोनिका, और अन्य को भी बड़े पैमाने पर प्रभावित कर चुका है, जिनमें अस्पताल, ब्लड बैंक्स और आर्थिक संस्थान हैं। More →

    No, I don’t WannaCry, but we’re all collectively responsible for a lot of pain around us

    Every once in a while, we come across developments that reignite focus on the subject of security. Over the past week, that development was WannaCry, a ransomware program that has infected over 230,000 systems in over 99 countries. Closer home, the Andhra Pradesh Police is said to be the latest victim of the attack. Globally, the list of victims includes the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs, Russian Railways, Nissan, Renault, Telefonica, and several critical entities such as hospitals, blood banks, and financial institutions.

    Happy for Flipkart, but in reality it’s failure on part of eBay in India

    Happy for Flipkart, but in reality it’s failure on part of eBay in India

    Yesterday, Flipkart finally announced that it was acquiring eBay India. Through my early years of online shopping, there was just one credible name in India, and that was eBay. Along with me, quite a few of my friends seemed to trust eBay more than Baazee. In 2004, eBay acquired Baazee and eBay India was born. In the true sense, e-commerce in India was born. More →
