  1. PayDragon is the Express Lane Resting in Your Pocket

    I'm not even going to bury the lede here: Yes, there is a reason to use an electronic payment service like PayDragon even when the Pay with Square application exists. As nice as it is to walk up to the counter and tell the barista your name, PayDragon has one clear advantage: Skipping that line entirely.

  2. Back-End Engineers Are the Unsung Heroes of the Tech Industry

    Designers and front-end developers get all the credit. They're the ones that produce the most readily visible changes to your favorite service or product. Most customers never even realize that there are countless engineers toiling away in data centers, working on infrastructures and behind-the-veil fixes in order to make some of their dream features a reality. And that's a shame.

  3. You Wanna Know How You Survive? You Get Sponsors.

    I sound like a broken record at this point, what with my proclamations of advertising clinging to the life-preserver that is the mobile market. But I'll say it again: Advertising, as it currently stands, is not going to continue to work. It's not only inefficient and annoying for the viewers but also for the companies purchasing and selling ad space, as one group wastes time and the other wastes money.

  4. The Next Generation Will Leave Us in the Dust...and That's a Good Thing

    My nephew is almost three years old, and I doubt that he will remember pixels. Chances are that he'll rarely use a physical mouse and keyboard, and he will never know the sheer joy that is digging through a mass of floppy disks trying to find that one game that didn't suck quite so horribly as the others.

  5. Exclusive: Zynga Executive Leaving to Change the Video Industry

    We watched as social media changed journalism. We watched as it transformed music. Now we're going to watch, as it changes the way that producers and consumers alike interact with and buy videos. Or that's what Andy Kleinman, the former General Manager for Zynga in Latin America, is planning at least.

  6. GiftDish Makes Online Gifting Easy

    I'm awful with birthdays, so awful that I have considered, numerous times, getting a tattoo on my forearm that reads off whose birthday it is on any given date. Despite never going through with this -- I'm delicate (or at least that's what I've been told) -- the birthday issue is one that I've been trying to solve for a long time.

  7. Game Time Is Over, Now Do Some Work

    Working on the PandoTicker gives me a unique perspective of the high-level stuff that's going on in the industry, affording me the chance not only to add a little bit of snark to the Ticker posts (who doesn't love snark?) but also to catch up on some of the latest trends, and either praise them or call bullshit.

  8. On Writing from the Boonies

    In Upstate New York, it's easier to find a drug dealer than it is a decent Internet connection. This is the region that has decided to make a name for itself, growing grapes and outsourcing any labor-intensive work to the Amish, while the rest of us attempt to find something, anything to do.
