05 Feb Samsung Galaxy Note9: A Flagship Phone For Busy Millennials

Post Image

Upon the Samsung Galaxy Note9’s release in August 2018, I immediately pushed aside my Galaxy S9+ and made it my primary Android device.

21 Jan Why Didn’t Apple Use Qualcomm’s Modems In 2018 iPhones?

Like I said last week in my article entitled “If The FTC Case Against Qualcomm Seems Like a Clown Show Right Now, It’s Because It Started That Way”, if you haven’t been following the FTC versus Qualcomm case and are in the tech industry, you probably should. What’s likely at stake are future inventors’ rights to monetize […]

16 Jan If The FTC Case Against Qualcomm Seems Like a Clown Show Right Now, It’s Because It Started That Way

If you haven’t been following the FTC versus Qualcomm case and are in tech, you probably should. What’s likely at stake are future inventors’ rights to monetize their inventions, the U.S. government becoming an IP price fixer, U.S. 5G competitiveness and in related industries like self-driving cars and smart cities and potentially national security.
