Care about technology? Watch this very energizing video of Chamath Palihapitiya, VC, Silicon Valley

13 Sep

I had never heard of Chamath before I came across this video and now I wonder why. His world view as being in the technology sector as a VC is so refreshingly different than other VCs who only talk about money and the next big exit. Chamath is all about making meaningful impact in people’s lives with the help of technology and specially in the health-care sector.

Chamath I really hope whatever you do, you succeed, because then many more people will succeed and benefit too.

Steve Jobs Documentary(unofficial?) – One More Thing

21 Aug

 

Steve Jobs is always deeply inspiring and intriguing to me. He changed 3 industries completely – Computers, Music, Phones and brought out a whole new category in the form of iPad. So every time I read or watch stuff related to him it never ceases to amaze me!

I don’t want to take away the delight of this video by giving out any content.

Watch it and get inspired.

Android-Developer2

 

First thing first, I am an Apple fanboy and love every moment of my iPhone past one year since I got it. But my love for technology/innovation and intention to constantly improve the UI(User Interface) thereby leading to a better UX(User eXperience) has always superseded my brand bias. If something is good, it is, if something is bad, it is, if something is ugly, it is. And everyone be it Apple, Samsung Google has everything(design is vastly subjective!)  though the level of each differs from time to time.

A user may take something for granted as it has cost him something in order to experience it. Be it swipe gesture on an app, be the beautiful colors and physics on a game, be the simplicity of a product, be the display, etc. But what usually goes unmentioned is what goes behind the screen to provide the experience to the end user. What is simple to the user is incredibly hard for the developers to pull it off. Any one can present complexity, but to present simplicity is quite complex!

So when I came across the article headline as mentioned in the title of this post, I was eager to read what goes behind in Google’s Android to provide the front Android experience. And I must say I am very impressed the way Google is always working very hard to improvise the UX and is also willing to share its design process.

Though Android developers would already be familiar with these as its part of the developer site, but as a non-developer(so far) I was very inquisitive about it. Also since I am a heavy app user and do try new apps quite often, I tend to notice which apps make me want to come back and which I am not very keen to go back as the UX is so bad even though the content may be worth revisiting.

Read the article on Medium.
