CTP Ep 36: The Internet of things hype.

This week we have Sergey, Ben, and Hrishi talking about connected devices.

Sergey gives a quick rundown of his experience with digital ecosystems, and connected devices over the past 7 years. We give a big shout-out to USB memory sticks, remember those ancient things? 🙂

CTP Ep 32: All about Batteries.

This week Sergey is travelling, so we have a Hrishi-and-Ben special episode 🙂

Are you satisfied with the battery life of your digital devices? We are sure not! What do you do to improve the battery life of your devices? Turn off 3G, wi-fi, GPS, bluetooth? Well, even with that it is nowhere near what we had 7 years ago.

CTP Ep 31: Is there anything exciting in CES?

Happy New Year everyone! Sergey and Hrishi are back this year with more awesome tech discussions! Hrishi got a 27′ iMac with an SSD from Santa this Christmas – now that’s a great Santa :). Always get an SSD with your new computer. It will help you with the battery, it will help you with everything. Hrishi just has to figure out what to do with his music… iTunes Match looks like the best option for him. What do you guys think? We would love to hear your tips on what to do with all Hrishi’s music.

CTP Ep 30: Is Skype a social network?

CTP Ep 30: Is Skype a social network?

Ben a Sergey are back with another awesome dose of tech goodness this week. This week we talk about the future of social networks. To start with, what is the definition of a social network? It is not as clear as you might think. Are Skype, Whatsapp, and such truly social networks?

Why on earth are people using Tumblr – that thing is U-G-L-Y. Are social networks becoming more ego-centric? After a flood of snapchat-like, and selfies apps what to expect next? And why is Hrishi not a morning person? Listen to this episode to find out!

CTP Ep 29: Why is everything a duopoly?

CTP Ep 29: Why is everything a duopoly?

We are back this week with a look at the current tech marketplace, which surprisingly, is ruled by duopolies. Oh, and Hrishi’s code works today, so he looks like these guys 🙂

We look closely at the smartphone market, where Samsung and Apple are the biggest players. We also see a lot of organisations that used to be top players in this market to go bust, or near bust: Blackberry, HTC, Motorola (before purchased by Google), and Nokia (before announcement of purchase by Microsoft).

CTP Ep 28: The Drones are here!

Sergey, Hrishi, and Ben are getting into some Christmas spirit, which at this time of the year can mean only one thing – it is time for some bargain Christmas shopping! 🙂

Speaking of Black Friday and Christmas shopping season in general, Amazon has done an amazing publicity stunt this year by releasing their plans and videos of the delivery air drones.
