Death of The Crunchies

Death of The Crunchies

At the TechCrunch Winter Party that took place in San Francisco last week, there was a pinata bashing that signified the death of the much maligned awards show, The Crunchies, which after a decade of highs and lows has finally been shuttered by Verizon, TechCrunch’s new parent company. Launched in 2007 by legendary TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington, the show’s mission was to showcase the best in tech, but it soon became mired in controversy for becoming an over-the-top, glitzy, star-studded affair that repeatedly celebrated the same industry heavyweights: Twitter’s Jack Dorsey, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Google/Yahoo’s Marissa Mayer, Uber’s Travis Kalanick, Salesforce’s Marc Benioff, Snapchat’s Evan Spiegel. Broad, overreaching categories like Best App, Best Startup, Best Founder seemed to exclude many who were toiling away, revolutionizing the industry. “They had an award for ‘Best VC’ which pretty much says it all right there,” recalled BitTorrent Founder Bram Cohen.

HP’s Patrick Harr Talks Cloud and Hybrid Delivery

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSI went to the HP Roadshow in San Francisco, where I got to listen to many industry professionals talk about HP Gen8 servers. Of course, the new direction to IT infrastructure is “Cloud” based. Unfortunately, that term is thrown around like an old shoe. Patrick Harr – HP’s Vice President of Converged Cloud Sales – came in to explain the Cloud a little more. In his discussion (Master the Cloud – Traditional IT to convergence and from convergence to cloud), he talked about how the mindset has changed, especially in the last ten years. “What has changed in the 1999-2000 timeframe is really multitendency virtualization. But just as important, the business mindset has changed. We’ve always been searching for how we drive more efficiency. More agility, more speed.”  “How many apps do you have on your iPad or iPhone?

Enterprise SDK iPhone – The 100 Million Dollar Challenge

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSApple held a Town Hall meeting in where they discussed the future of the iPhone. The end result is very impressive.

He sited that iPhone shows the most browser usage than any other phone. iPhone has already taken over the #2 spot in SmartPhone Marketshare. Phil Schiller came up and discussed the Enterprise model. The biggest part of that model is the control an IT department has over the phone. Being able to push Exchange to the phone is awesome, however, during the demonstration they showed how IT can protect their data by locking the phone.
