PARC Innovation Tour, Part V: In database privacy

Published

How can you send a database, or give access to it, while making sure that different people can only see data that they are supposed to? Think of a spreadsheet. What if person A is only supposed to be able to see Rows A, C, and E, while person B is supposed to see rows A, B, and F. That's hard to make happen in modern databases. Here you'll hear the latest thinking from PARC, famous R&D lab, about how it will solve that problem. Interesting discussion about privacy in this "post Snowden" world, too. This is the last of a five-part tour through PARC, the famous R&D lab in Silicon Valley.

PARC Innovation Tour, Part II: "printed" batteries bring 30% gains

Published

This is part II of our PARC innovation tour. Here you'll see how PARC is inkjet printing lithium ion batteries and by doing that getting up to 30% more energy density without changing the chemistry of how these batteries work.

PARC Innovation Tour, Part I: Circuit board printing out of an inkjet printer!

Published

PARC is the Palo Alto Research Center which is one of the world's most famous R&D labs (ethernet, object oriented printing, guis, and much more were invented here). In this five-part tour you'll see what these smart people are working on now. Steve Jobs, famously, in the early 1980s, visited this lab and bought the rights to get a deep look at the technology that would become the Macintosh.

Here you see some really crazy new circuit boards that can be printed on a variety of flexible materials. All printed on an inkjet printer. Get a look at how this technology could change the future.

Numecent will change how you get applications from the cloud

Published

Business Insider wrote they were blown away by this startup. http://www.businessinsider.com/were-blown-away-this-startup-could-literally-change-the-entire-software-industry-2012-3

I can't disagree. This startup, Numecent, has some pretty mind-blowing cloud-based technology to deliver apps to you without forcing you to download the entire app. Think of things like Adobe Illustrator, Microsoft Office, Autodesk's CAD software, etc.

Here founder Osman Kent tells me what's behind this very interesting technology. Learn more at http://www.numecent.com/

Northface's founder compares starting a company now vs. 1970s

Published

http://www.obscuradigital.com/ is one of the most innovative companies around. It builds digital experiences for a variety of companies. If you were at Facebook's latest F8 you saw it work when you walked in on a huge data wall. Here I meet with a group of its founders.

But it got better when Kenneth "Hap" Klopp walked in. He's one of the co-founders of the North Face and we spent a bunch of time talking about starting great companies.

The better Siri: Sherpa

Published

Here I get a look at the latest personal assistant, Sherpa, which is an app for Android. Take a look at it, from the founder's eye and comparison to Siri. I've been using it for a while now and it is, indeed, better than Siri for a whole range of tasks. Get it at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sherpa.asistentesherpa

Car hacking with the Tesla S and Google Glass

Published

This is Sahas Katta who wrote an app to control his dad's Tesla S via Google Glass. I hear Vic Gundotra (Google VP who runs Google+) already loves this app. Me? I love that he has to borrow his dad's car to debug the app (he usually drives an old Acura).
