  2. How Google can save Android: Close it. License it. Swim in the profits.

    For much of 2011, it looked like Android was crushing it. Google had brilliantly pushed its free mobile OS to every corner of the earth—you could pick up an Android phone from every manufacturer on every carrier at every price point, most often just as a consolation prize for signing a contract. Looking back, I’d peg Android’s high-water mark at around April Fool’s Day, when Fred Wilson declared Google’s OS to be the preeminent marketplace for mobile developers. Not only was Android nearing a majority share of the smartphone market, its rate of growth eclipsed that of every other platform. Meanwhile Apple’s growth appeared to have stalled; February 2011’s comScore data showed that even despite launching on Verizon, the iPhone was just barely holding on to its 25 percent market share.

  3. That Was Fast: Betaworks Returns All Capital... And Then Some

    The New York tech scene has certainly received a lot of hype, but a lot of people are waiting for results that prove it's more than just that. Proof that New York is really a tech ecosystem that is here to stay, no matter what may happen to Foursquare and Gilt.

  4. Wait a Minute. Part of Starting a Company Is Dealing with Reporters?

    I've been a regular guest on NBC's Press:Here since the first episode with Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. If you've never seen the show, it's like Meet the Press for entrepreneurs. Several reporters gang up on some poor CEO, and typically I ask the most obnoxious questions.

  5. YourSports Raises $1.7m to Give Sports Fans a Place to Be Rabid

    On Jan. 22, I was intensely focused on my Twitter feed, constantly refreshing it for updates about nasty weather in the area. What I was greeted with, instead, was the distinct impression that you Giants and 49ers fans were somewhere chanting in unison, “Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t … stop tweeting.”

  6. Hollywood is Dead. Long Live Hollywood.

    There has been a lot of talk online about “Killing Hollywood.” From the average consumer to the Silicon Valley elite, Hollywood’s archaic business models and anti-consumer behavior is frustrating everyone (except their lawyers!).

We are told the email said, "We've already pushed some changes to Google Web Server, and we've got more in the pipeline."

  8. Tech Dispatches from Davos: No Fear Entrepreneurship

    Drew Houston has a great singing voice. Around 2:00am last night he serenaded the Davos late night crowd with a rendition of Elton John's "Rocket Man." Marissa Mayer and I cheered him on piano side. While I didn't meet him there, I'm told Mick Jagger was hanging out in the same bar. If Dropbox doesn't work out for Drew, maybe Mick can set him up with an audition.
