  • DIY Disruption Is The Easiest Way To Innovate
    inventwheel Last month I attended the Collision conference in Las Vegas; it served up a hipster/music festival feel with a decidedly tech twist. The event welcomed old-school headliners like PayPal, Dropbox and Facebook, but also brought in hundreds of tech startups, from cloud management vendor CloudB?olt to Me?dYear, a consumer health information exchange platform. The vibe was electric. Read More


  • Precision Ag Tech Helps California Farmers Grow More With Less Water
    wireless-soil-moisture-monitoring-and-tractor Will Gerry might look the part of a fourth-generation farmer — dirty denim jeans, shirt sleeves rolled up and a gray beard that wraps from brim to brim on his leather hat. But once Gerry whips the smartphone out of his pocket, he starts rattling off tech jargon and analyzing data points across his farm like a 20-something whiz kid from Silicon Valley. Read More


  • How To Not Post Crappy Pics Of Fireworks This Fourth Of July
    The temptation will be great. The urge will be strong. Watching sky-based explosions, geared toward entertainment and celebration, can be a powerful experience. And in the Instagram Age, the powerful experiences are the ones we want to share. But the July 5th edition of Instagram usually sucks pretty hard, based mostly on blurry, drunkenly captured photos of fireworks. This guide should help… Read More


  • Arcade Dreams
    coin-ops-starwars Summer always makes me think of the 7-11 at the end of East Lakeview in Columbus, Ohio. I was about eight. My grandmother took us there every week to get comic books, which were near the front window, by the counter. In the back corner, in darkness, was a Star Wars stand up arcade game. On the day it first appeared it bleated a snippet of the Star Wars theme and my ears perked up. It took a… Read More


  • Measuring Your Financial Health Beyond The Credit Score
    financialhealth The credit score has become a ubiquitous way to assess someone’s credit-worthiness. It is used in a host of underwriting decisions and background checks, from mortgages to auto to business loans, apartment rentals and even employment candidacy. But credit scores are not a prevalent factor in peoples’ daily financial habits. Why? Read More

  • This Saturday On The TC Gadgets Podcast: Amazon Echo
    Screenshot 2015-07-04 10.06.38 I could lie and tell you that we recorded a special July 4th edition of the TC Gadgets Podcast, but it wouldn’t be accurate. In reality, we recorded this podcast over a week ago and I accidentally forgot to push the publish button. But the content still exists, so I felt strongly about sharing it with you guys. In this episode, we talk about the freshly released Amazon Echo, which is… Read More


  • Wired For Extremes
    Namibia Chris McNamara stood at the overhang of what would be his final wingsuit BASE jump (parachuting or wingsuit flying from a fixed structure: building, antenna, span and Earth). A 1,500-foot drop was a conservative risk in a community that saw around 30 deaths last year. “After I took flight I had never realized how much physical strength was required in wingsuit BASE. I wasn’t nervous… Read More


  • So About That Whole Tech-Eating-Jobs Thing
    1024px-Wrong_Way The argument seems compelling, the logic inescapable. As hardware doubles its density every 18-24 months, courtesy of Moore’s Law, and as software eats the world, technology will replace a broad swathe of jobs outright–from burger-flippers to physicians–and networks will atomize many others from full-time positions into gigs performed by many fungible workers. Tech, in… Read More


  • From Remnant To Riches: What The Quest For Premium Inventory Means For The Industry
    ragsriches The recent flurry of ad-tech acquisition deals clearly demonstrates that the industry is shifting its focus to developing solutions that support premium inventory. While all the attention has traditionally been around solving for RTB and the programmatic trading of low-value, non-guaranteed inventory, things are changing. Read More

    10724558026_940f702785_k Y Combinator has helped over 800 startups come to market that are today worth a collective $30 billion (and possibly even more very soon). Now it looks like a new VC is emerging out of it that will be dedicated to help the most promising of these grow. TechCrunch has learned of a new VC fund called Crystal Towers. Backed by several YC founders, it will start out with between $90 million… Read More


  • CrunchWeek: Apple Music, Uber?s Engineering Push, And Shyp?s Challenge To The 1099 Economy
    crunchweek-4-3 Happy Friday, everyone. We’re glad that you are with us today before we take off and drink beer celebrate America. Our own Sarah Buhr took over the hosting slot this week, while Matthew Lynley and myself helped out. We dug into the release of Apple Music, Uber’s decision to absorb a large chunk of Microsoft’s Bing Maps team, and how Shyp, a startup, is helping shape the… Read More


  • Experiential Commerce Is The Next Billion-Dollar Opportunity For Developers
    escalator Technology has transformed entire industries over the past decade, from travel and transportation to media and real estate. While commerce has enjoyed some innovation, its transformation is far from over. The next frontier is “Commerce Everywhere,” which blends online and offline experiences to let you make purchases wherever and whenever you want. Read More


  • Want Google?s Cardboard VR Headset? OnePlus Is Giving Them Away For Free, If You Pay Shipping
    cardboard Since about 10 seconds after Google launched its do-it-yourself Cardboard virtual reality headset, other companies have been selling pre-made clones — and Google is totally fine with that. The catch: many of the clones cost upwards of $20-30 bucks, and that’s before shipping. Paying that much for what is essentially a piece of cardboard can feel a bit silly. Looking to capitalize… Read More


  • The Incredible 3D Printed Zoetrope
    zoe-smooth Here’s a wonderfully neat project to perhaps spark some creativity as we head into this holiday weekend: the 3D printed Zoetrope. Take the concept of a flipbook — a series of frames displayed quickly to trick your brain into seeing an animation — and make it 3D, swapping out the still images for sculptures. Toss in a spinning platter and a strobe light (with the strobe… Read More
