There’s some buyer remorse on… Read More - Steve Gillmor

I know you're going to OD on Apple, but don't forget to talk about Ello. I have a strange feeling it is really catching on, and once the news media says it is, more and more people will go. Not yet a threat to FB, but could threaten G+ or even LI - Francine Hardaway

I haven't tried it - Kevin Marks
Ello harrassment? - Francine Hardaway
Facebook bought WhatsApp to finish their messenger suite and complete their independence from Microsoft/Skype. #skypeschildren - Phil Wolff
iOS only; voice focused not in my center - Kevin Marks
That's what I saw in my stream, Francine - Tom Guarriello
Yes, Francine. Thanks. It's freaking huge. Think of all the medical research trials that can be done, using the accelerometer alone. I've talked to a number (2) of developers about that. They're jazzed. - Doc
Talko didn't impress me - Francine Hardaway
is this streaming through TechCrunch? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Without charging for Communication Services how will these Apps make any money - Moe Glitz from iPhone

I'm on Nextdoor but find it sort of clumsy - Tina Chase Gillmor
Talko completely gets the idea that conversations aren't phone calls. Voice is both sync and asynch; starts before and continues after synch'd talk; team communication a la Slack (for collaboration more than 1-1 convos); all cloud (no p2p) so all voice/video can be annotated, interpreted, translated, munged to add value. - Phil Wolff
I know some people who like Talko. Haven't tried it yet. - Doc
Talko sounds like Chatter done granular - clive boulton
I like the passive aggression of Ray Ozzie coming out with Talko first on Apple. - Doc

Talko is serious acquisition bait for Microsoft, Salesforce, or anyone that sells to business for collaboration. - Phil Wolff

BBM is alive and kicking in Indonesia / Malaysia / Phillipines - clive boulton
My kids and nieces/nephews dislike speaking on the phone. I can't get anyone under 28 to pick up the phone. Well come to think of it nobody really wants to talk to me on the phone. Never mind. - Charlie Isaacs
I'm liking the Google Voice integration with Hangouts - Da from Android
I heard they're killing Google Voice... anyone else? - Charlie Isaacs
Larry has been CTO since day 1. Even when someone else held the CTO role. - clive boulton
its been a slow week for tech. - Chris Hale

Is wi-fi calling going to turn T-Mo / Apple into a new kind of telco - clive boulton

So the best we can do is YACS. Yet Another Chat System - Doc
I love Keith's chat commercials.chat is nothing I really do anymore anywhere. Seems somewhat eighties to me - Ludwig Ederle from iPhone
If folks can recieve the BBC iPlayer in your location than take a view at 'Terror at the Mall". So heartbreaking and unbelievable. - Moe Glitz from iPhone
I can chat with guys to fix my pipes? ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
eStara used to do Click to Call pretty well, they were bought by Oracle - we also did that pretty well at Genesys; Avaya and Cisco do that too and there are about 20 CTI vendors that do Click-to-Call - Charlie Isaacs
Ain't tech great, Tina? - Tom Guarriello
He shouldn't do that on the road - Ludwig Ederle from iPhone
on a related note Tina, this week I spoke to a company that wants to connect their endoscopes to the cloud - Charlie Isaacs
Click to chat is a natural line extension for Google AdWords. The client doesn't really matter; Google could pipe you to SMS, Hangouts, Whatsapp, et al. - Phil Wolff
i used to use meebo back in the day - Chris Hale
I used Meebo, Chris - Francine Hardaway
So imagine typing on the iPhone free apple watch in 2 years - Ludwig Ederle from iPhone
Chat=talk don't type - Ludwig Ederle from iPhone
CCTV and citizen media show the true horror of 4 Terrorists murdering 71 innocent civilians inside a Kenyan Mall - Moe Glitz from iPhone

Does Telegram fit in here somewhere? Its free and across platforms. - Hilary Talbot

Al Gore's series of tubes - Chris Hale
The universe is a big silo...that's what the string theorists say, right? - Tom Guarriello

it's not the endoscope that's uncomfortable, it's the stuff you have to drink prior to the procedure :) - Charlie Isaacs
but yes, you are correct Francine - Charlie Isaacs
I did't enjoy any part of the endoscope - clive boulton

http://gizmodo.com/what-it... Things have not changed all that much! - Tony Stanislawski
you can connect Chatter to anything by connecting to IFTTT - there's a Chatter channel - Charlie Isaacs
that's good but it's still asilo - Kevin Marks
I like tiiny - Ludwig Ederle from iPhone
it runs on salesforce servers - Kevin Marks
i really like how Microsofts mobile OS blended communication into a central hub - Chris Hale
My 17 year old son sends 2000 texts a month. He also spends half an hour on the phone, entirely with his parents. Once in awhile he looks at email, and responds as if by text. - Doc
XMPP had the rooms abstraction which was quite complicated to use. Rooms are gone from the simpler chat systems used now. - Todd Hoff
The Silo that wins is the one that provides Social Commerce - Moe Glitz from iPhone
I'm still using irc - Kevin Marks

I like silos. They hold silage. - Phil Wolff
is Heroku a silo too Kevin? how about AWS? It runs on Amazon's servers - Charlie Isaacs
heroku they enable me to run code and host things that run arbitrary code - Kevin Marks
Twitter is going toward that model but I think it will get lost amongst the Twitter audience. A standalone App for Social Commerce will win - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Pictures, Video & Voice. Typing is just a interstitial to explain pictures - Ludwig Ederle from iPhone
That capitalism+democracy thing almost worked. Want a Fukiyama vs. Piketty smackdown. - Doc
so heroku is not a silo Kevin? I agree - Charlie Isaacs
Twilio is doing a great job bringing traditional telco services like SMS, MMS and corporate VoiP to the software developer community - Carlos Cruz

Is there a dentist involved today? - Ludwig Ederle from iPhone

Marc Canter. DUDE! - Doc
We're fixing an hole and there ain't no rain getting in - Moe Glitz from iPhone

What's going on in the Googleverse lately? - Ludwig Ederle from iPhone
Will apple approve personalized apps? - Todd Hoff
Chris: talk to me. Offline. Maybe something in the UK. - Doc
cool - Chris Hale
Does anyone can recommend a good case for the iPhone 6 Plus? - Nir Ben Yona
Keith is a thinker, I love that! - Tony Stanislawski
Google+ feels as if run by Microsoft or apple lately. Looks as if they had a problem there? - Ludwig Ederle from iPhone
I like the Kenzo iPhone cases: https://www.google.com/search... - Doc
Keith's point is that innovation comes from the edge, right? - Tom Guarriello
Facebook ain't the edge, that's for sure. - Tom Guarriello
Google+ needs to be put down. - Moe Glitz from iPhone

Keith is right about ManU - Tony Stanislawski
How are notifications any different than an inbox on your phone? - Todd Hoff
I'll be surprised if Dave Winer is still doing facebook development in 5 years. Especially if he starts to get traction with it. Watch for Facebook APIs to start changing... - Ian McGee
Notifications need to be curated (via machine learning) at an individual level. Otherwise will tend to be useless - Carlos Cruz
Notifications w/o tuning controls are the new email, - clive boulton
LOL Steve - Tony Stanislawski
Dave is just looping in Facebook. He's also dev'ing on DropBox and other places. But he's independent. - Doc
Ello now gives you emails when someone does something. - Francine Hardaway
Robert, have you lost weight/ - Doc
Dave is just having fun, Doc. He's doing his outliners and readers and editors like always, and just sending them places - Francine Hardaway
One solution would be a timer for your notifications that you could set... - Tony Stanislawski
Looking good! Method? - Doc
Hugely is right - Francine Hardaway
Keith, do you think LVG is humorously pompous? - Tom Guarriello
Agree about Dave, Doc & Francine. That's why I'll be surprised if he sticks with it. - Ian McGee
Tom - yes - Keith Teare
I get a kick out of his post-game interviews. He HATES British press! - Tom Guarriello
Android is fractured. - Doc
What do we want to be part of our internal conversation? That is the filter. - Arnie Klaus
Displaying on the home screen is merely a display option and that's a function of what apple allowed. But the idea is the same. In the olden days you would just pull up your email and watch the world go by. As everything sent mail as a form of notifications it was the same experience. And notifications suffer from the same pollution problems that inboxes suffer from. - Todd Hoff
my gmail is a great filter for notification across my androids and windows devices - Da from Android
i agree with Kevin. IOS is fragmented as well - Chris Hale
Cue Kevin - Moe Glitz from iPhone

that is a frequency receiver on my sill: an actual old-fashioned radio, with a dial and all. - Doc
Ello will be an interesting experiment for me...How much do I do no mobile vs. Desktop... - Tony Stanislawski
cool Doc - Charlie Isaacs
Taschek's Continuum: Happier-->Don't Leave-->Suck Less - Tom Guarriello
And the book with the curled cover is Halley's. - Doc
1.5% windows phone users, making 90% of the trouble:) 'where is the app for the 'leading OS' (being windows hahahaha) - Ludwig Ederle from iPhone
telling that Android One came out in India first - Da from Android
ello is a pain the neck on mobile - Kevin Marks
I dont understand elli yet. - Tina Chase Gillmor

IFTTT is getting to be much more important - Tom Guarriello
Francine: exactly. - Robert Scoble
NAME THE SHOW - Tina Chase Gillmor
Francine, i agree with you but I think you will see homes starting to get smarter over the next couple of years. Price and complexity of devices is going down and with the proliferation of watches and phones I think we have a way to control all these things with ease - Chris Hale
The quantified self is an huge area for innovation. Apple Watch is just the beginning. - Carlos Cruz
What apps work with Healthkit right now? - Tony Stanislawski
Ello Shitty, Tina? ;) - Tom Guarriello
Not if 1) you rent your home, or 2) you live in an older home that's not so easy to wire for all these connected devices, Chris - Francine Hardaway
IOS The new Borg - Arnie Klaus
gtg - Kevin Marks
dunno. My photo for my profile imported sideways. interface is weird, to me - Tina Chase Gillmor
Tony, there are new research apps, very vertical; plus many changes to existing apps, such as Nike's, Fitbit's, Digifit's... - Doc

Ello. This weeks Number One new App of the Week - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Diagnosis will be digital in less than five years - Francine Hardaway
I dont agree with that one francine. I rent my apartment and I know of tons of startups that are making home auto devices meant to retro fit into places you cant permantly wire things - Chris Hale

Murray -- I think so.... - John Taschek

Medium is great... here are a couple of interesting pieces: https://medium.com/@dweinb... - Frank Paynter
So what's the 6 good for besides bigger, better camera and Apple Pay compared to the 5s? - Ludwig Ederle
Steven Levy started curating a tech section for Medium - christina sponselli
Medium definitely found an interesting niche. - Tom Guarriello
Anyone have connections to 12 south? Hoping they come out with a bookbook for iphone 6 sooner rather than later - Matthew Voshell
I'm seeing a lot of young parents abandon Facebook and take up Path - clive boulton
Steve --> The Tale of the Manson Tapes by Tom O’Neill http://bit.ly/1wOFzba - Nir Ben Yona
I'm in DC and i've never heard Path mentioned once...SnapChat is spreading like wildfire - Matthew Voshell
Medium is very social and (of course) has great hooks into Twitter - christina sponselli
Medium is excellent -- but Steve's point about it being elitist is probably true and that's why it is better. - John Taschek
John - why elitist? - Tina Chase Gillmor
"Thoughtful writing" what a concept. The anti-Buzzfeed. - Tom Guarriello
How will Medium making $? - christina sponselli
yes, the antidote - Tina Chase Gillmor
That is what Steve said -- - John Taschek
Confession: They gave me a Medium account in the early days, but I haven't written anything that I thought was high enough quality to place there. - Frank Paynter
Frank... give it a try anyway - Tina Chase Gillmor
@Christina http://thenextweb.com/media... and https://medium.com/re-form : Native Content Ads. - Satyajit
Thanks, @Satyajit - christina sponselli
The Apple/U2 blowback has been interesting. My wife's work (hospital) wasn't amused that all company iphones suddenly had the album. http://www.adweek.com/news... - Ian McGee
but its a lot harder to write in the long-form - Tina Chase Gillmor
But people miss long form and quality - John Taschek
Matthew ~ glance at young Moms phones, lots of them use Path - clive boulton
Path for families - Tina Chase Gillmor
Twitter acquired Posterous, does anyone remember that? - Nir Ben Yona
Long form will keep up quality, keeping noise down. Another great thing about Medium is it approximates how much time I am going to take to read an article so it sort of helps me to decide wheter I can read an article now or add it to read it later list. - Satyajit
Tina: yes. Path fits Apple like a glove - clive boulton
Agree, Satyajit. Plus the discoverability of seeing what your friends are reading or writing. And they have a great email digest. - christina sponselli
We need aggregation tools that allow you to control the settings. - Murray Macdonald

The Gillmor Gang — Dan Farber, Robert Scoble, Benedict Evans, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor. It’s three days later and I’m still going back and forth over which iPhone to buy. The preorders are sold out for 6+, tipping the scale toward the smaller bigger one. What may tip it back is the Watch, which suggests a new paradigm of interlinked devices that, when starting with… Read More - Steve Gillmor
GIllmor Gang, recording special edition live tonight 6pm PT participate at http://www.ustream.tv/gillmor...
on boarding everyone now - Tina Chase Gillmor
Hanging out, waiting for the famous call. - Robert Scoble
Squeee - Kevin Costain
I can haz arrived - Chris Hale
Good evening all - Tony Stanislawski
so Robert, which cell provider are you with these days? - Chris Hale
Verizon. - Robert Scoble
No Chinese overdub please - Kevin Costain
Today is the day before tomorrow!!!! - Kevin Costain
did you see on apples site on the spec sheet it didnt mention nfc on the verizon and tmobile iphones - Chris Hale
@Chris, I also noticed those phones didn't have 802.11ac.. was that true? - Kevin Costain
Steve will get the bedazzled edition! - Chris Hale
We are restarting. - Robert Scoble
Cause we don't wanna be "f**ked." - Robert Scoble
Square is.. uhm square. Sorry, the watch (edit) looks like shit. - Kevin Costain
haha - Chris Hale
i think curved look of iphone 6 will lead to a lot of dropped phones - Chris Hale
before any rebuttles , I don't believe phones should have cases. - Chris Hale
The watch is pretty nice looking: http://www.apple.com/watch... Yes, it can be better. - Robert Scoble
Question; How does Apple make money with Apple Pay? - Kevin Costain
@kevin, they don't - Chris Hale
its more for the user experience for paying for things as a tactic to immerse you further into the ecosystem - Chris Hale
@chris - how would you protect the you $800 investment without a case? - Kevin Costain
I have been a huge fan of the new generation of glass screen protectors. - Chris Hale
I am unafraid of scuffing up the back of the device. I would rather a thin/pocketable device than a thick device that sticks to my pocket and makes it very uncomfortable to walk around with - Chris Hale
The lack of commentary on watch battery life - what does that mean? - Josh Bradshaw
Kevin: by selling you a new phone and watch. I can just see something like "At the Olympics you can use an Apple Watch to Pay but you can't use Moto 360." - Robert Scoble
The thing is, these devices are becoming worse for scratches. i look at the Apple Watch.. and in a week I see that thing scratched to shit. - Kevin Costain
well luckily the bands look replacable - Chris Hale
I think the watch screen is sapphire i think. - Chris Hale
Ahh.. Scoble.. exclusivity. - Kevin Costain
Apple can make money on Apple pay - Tony Stanislawski
Kevin: fashion. :-) - Robert Scoble
Robert, i think the whole apple pay eco system wont have exclusivity for contactless payment for very long. I am guessing android will catch up quick. - Chris Hale
Also, no commentary on Watch battery life and almost no commentary on any sort of waterproofing. - Kevin Costain
Hope Tim Cook ate his hat, by mocking Android a year or so ago... 'bumping phones together, is silly, try ibeacons'... Still waiting for ibeacons to make major inroads... - Petr Faitl
I think the direction they are steering the ship will shift the whole industry in the right direction . I think the announcements today have finally solidified the movement to NFC as the next generation payment platform - Chris Hale
Anybody else notice they didnt mention any specs at all on the Watch today? - Chris Hale
or did i miss that part of the choppy video? - Chris Hale
Paywave from Visa uses NFC - http://www.visa.ca/en... - is Apple Pay going to plug right into this ecosystem with little or no change? - Kevin Costain
Chris: specs don't matter. But there are plenty on the Internet. - Robert Scoble
It was nice to see a return to the positive Apple focused on its products, rather than trying to slam others. - Ian McGee
we are bad at remembering history - Tony Stanislawski
@Tony .. WTF.. ? haha - Kevin Costain
Robert, I agree about specs in this category not really being that important but battery life and wifi and a few other things would have been helpful - Chris Hale
Today was a 'me too' day for apple. 'Unparallel' it was not. 2 iPhones is about sticking more SKUs into the market place trying to crowd it out. - Petr Faitl
@Chris - that was on purpose. If they offered those specs, that watch would look even worse. - Kevin Costain
there were a few things i really didnt like on the watch. The circular icons with differerent sizes and colors made the watch look like the screen had a weird lookin chicken pox look to it - Chris Hale
Is Scoble still getting the watch? - Tina Chase Gillmor
I want to know more about the walkie talkie feature - Tony Stanislawski
Who wants to bet the next Ipad will have NFC built into it and will possibly be a competitor to Square and other credit card readers - Chris Hale
Yes. - Robert Scoble
For a company the made devices (iPhones) that contributed to us abandoning watches, why would they make a phone? - Kevin Costain
I keep writing phone when I mean watch.. haha. - Kevin Costain
Taptic - Ian McGee
taptic engine - Chris Hale
Hiya - Ian Waring
"Not a content creation device!" - Kevin Costain
I wonder if passbook can be used legally for driver license - Tony Stanislawski
@Tony, not yet but I wonder how long it will take state goverments to adopt phones for ID's - Chris Hale
Square was quick to jump on Apple Pay support - had a story up on Hacker News right after the presentation - Ian McGee
Thing that got me was the infra red sensors under the watch. One of their hires is a specialist at measuring blood sugar levels using a non invasive, infrared sensor on the skin surface - Ian Waring
what was the synopsis @Ian? - Chris Hale
And, with fines going up for in-car phone use - what does this mean for driving with a connected Apple Watch? - Kevin Costain
Bluetooth between the Watch & iPhone? - J.C. Bouvier
@JC probably - Chris Hale
I wonder if this means American express will be in more places if it is your default card - Tony Stanislawski
The watch apparently senses some of its context, lighting up when the wrist is lifted. It also opens up a lot of contextual applications, now we know the location but we also know the heart rate when someone is in an experience. - Josh Bradshaw
It's actually really personal. This morning I was describing watch to a non-techie friend and as soon as I told about 'Haptic notifications' which I described as 'feels like a tap on wrist to notify you', I could see the excitement in eyes regarding the ideas popping about what normal person would like to use it in personal context.. - Satyajit
2 lines in the API gives Apple Pay support through Stripe (not Square sorry). Pitch was if you support Stripe now, it's trivial to support AP by iOS 8 launch. Decent strategy I thought. - Ian McGee
Wow, just found out you guys were here! - Tom Guarriello
@Tony, that is awesome... - J.C. Bouvier
I wonder if this canabalizes apples in app purchase platform. - Chris Hale
Apple has the money too to get these into stores - Tony Stanislawski
I am hoping it does. I really hated how apple has handled in app purchases or subscriptions or payments - Chris Hale
Would like to see some sleep monitoring for a comprehensive health offering from the watch but didn't see anything on that. My guess is it has to charge every night. - Josh Bradshaw
Certainly has a retail footprint to help drive it...and if banks see the value in the increased security of TouchID, they'll drive adoption...and Apple indeed may have just cornered the market on payments... - J.C. Bouvier
@Josh, i found a really cool device on kickstarter i backed recently that I really think is a good solution for sleep monitoring. - Chris Hale
@ChrisHale do share - Josh Bradshaw
I really, really like the concept of this device. I think it can do stuff like record audio when it detects sound at a certain threshold - Chris Hale
Taptic...brilliant new word - Tom Guarriello
With the demo they said it can store music, etc - Tony Stanislawski
The other thing they said is the App developers can push the processing and reduce the power used on the watch to the phone... - Tony Stanislawski
Who here will be shelling out $349 for the Apple wristwatch? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Hand raised here, Tina - Tom Guarriello
349 for watch and more for straps.. :) - Satyajit
At this point - No chance I'll buy the Apple watch. I'm in for the 4.7' iPhone 6 - Kevin Costain
Not me. I have a decent multi-sport watch and it suits me much better. - Petr Faitl
Only 48% of iPhone users have a phone that will support the watch, so for most it will be much more than $349 - Murray Macdonald
@Satyajit $749 for the gold version :) - Kevin Costain
I dont know if i am going to buy one . I am a developer and I kinda think i will probably have to buy one either way. - Chris Hale
Actually, I know I'm in for 2 - Tom Guarriello
I imagine the sports band is most economical - Tina Chase Gillmor
Most of that money is offshore... - Ian McGee
Things may change until the watch is released. They may change this product drastically. Make it more compelling. - Kevin Costain
Wow, Benedict made a phenomenal point - Chris Hale
The music labels HATE iTunes, so the Film Industry may be extra cautious about licensing to Apple. - Murray Macdonald
I think it wont take long at all for Android wear to make a wearable that competes really well with this watch - Chris Hale
@Benedict whilst that might be the case (at the moment), shareholders might be looking at Apple to bring more revenue and it might be the next logical step to go. Virgin was once a record selling company... - Petr Faitl
Anybody look at the apple video today and think that this payment platform will put a ginormous dent in Paypal? - Chris Hale
Those rights are enormously expensive, Keith - Tom Guarriello
Credit Card transactions cost a percentage of sales. Bank Card transactions cost $0.10 In countries other than the US (Canada and Europe) we've had secure Chip-And-Pin transactions for many years. Most purchases are made using Bank Cards, not Credit Cards. - Murray Macdonald
I think I want to get a watch. I want to experience how the form-factor works with me. I want to see what's missing, and where my imagination takes me after the experience - Tina Chase Gillmor
@Chris there certainly are folks at Paypal who would have spent the afternoon discussing precisely that. This is a challenge in the space they are trying to maintain control of and build out. - Josh Bradshaw
@Tina, your imagination is going to take at least $349 out of your pocket :) - Kevin Costain
Me too, Tina. It's a new category. I have a Pebble and it was pretty disappointing. I want to see what Apple does with the device. - Tom Guarriello
U2 is over - Tom Guarriello
Interesting it was Eddy Cue that presented the Apple Pay stuff. Signs that Beats likely is taking over the music side. - Ian McGee
I'm with you Tina, want it. Want it the first day. - Josh Bradshaw
@Kevin $749!!! :O but yea if it's available, though strap choice would be limited, can't pair gold with metal strap.. .:) - Satyajit
Read Lefsetz on this U2 appearance http://lefsetz.com/wordpre... - Tom Guarriello
I love the metal watch bands ( I think) but Im sure I'll start with the low end - Tina Chase Gillmor
@josh I very rapidly envision a world where i can touch my watch or my phone to a friends phone or watch and seamlessly and securely give them money. Since credit card and bank companies compete on features like purchase protection or fraud prevention i feel like the usefuleness of what solution paypal used to fit is negated in a real big way - Chris Hale
@Tina I want a metal one for going out and I want one for fitness. - Josh Bradshaw
@Chris, outside the US you can do it with your phone, no touchy feely needed. @Scoble can do it in Australia. Loved that when I lived there. - Josh Bradshaw
I think this the first time that the highest-end iPhone isn't going to be the best seller. - Kevin Costain
I wrote a quick blog article today about my thoughts on the Iphone 6 and one of the things i thought about that was really cool was the notion of possibly finally getting ATM machines that use NFC for authentication. I can't wait for that transition to occur - Chris Hale
Well said, Keith - Tom Guarriello
I also had the thought that i would like to have a nice band - that the clasping area is cool because I can see that I might wear my watch facing the inside of my wrist. you know, where you turn to look at the watch face on the inside of your wrist - Tina Chase Gillmor
Do share @Chris - Kevin Costain
$299 iPhone 6 w/64GB is the sweet spot for sure... - J.C. Bouvier
I wonder if the 16 GB iPhone 6 will have so little memory that it's unusable? - Kevin Costain
Here it is. Its just a humble nerds first reaction. Please ignore the rest of the site for now, I havent had time to clean it up http://ninjaenterprises.net/apple-i... - Chris Hale

Set my alarm for 3am (EST) Friday morning :/ - Kevin Costain
@kevin, id love to here your thoughts on my brief little article. I am just starting to blog and if people like the content, i will probably start doing articles more frequently - Chris Hale
No worries @Chris. I will get back to you on that. I'm also a blogger, so I know where your coming from I did the same today regardign the event: https://cwl.cc/2014... - Kevin Costain
@Chris Hale NFC for ATM is quite unlikely. I cannot see the banks allowing this to be used for more than the current NFC tech, i.e. small purchases up to $80-$100. - Petr Faitl
Thanks @kevin. - Chris Hale
@Petr, I feel like with the problems with card skimmers and now flir infrared able to read finger presses on atm machines, the banks need to step up security on ATM's in a big way. You could be totally right that banks wont have this tech on ATM's but I have already seen atm makers experiment with things like QR codes for 2nd factor auth on ATM's - Chris Hale
But honestly this is all just me theorizing use cases for this technology. Time will tell what ends up happening - Chris Hale
Great show tonight! Gotta head out. Very lively debate! - Chris Hale
So, first.. the one thing designers always bitch to me about. "The font is too small". I can hear a designer saying that about your blog. I like your point about cases and designed phones.. it make sense. And, it bring something new to the discussion. I know you mentioned it here in the chatroom - but if I were reading that for the first time, I'd stop and thin "He's got a point". Oh,... more... - Kevin Costain
@Petr - using a phone + touchID to do small withdrawal transactions would probably aid the bank in cutting losses from skimmers. Phones (apps) are starting to catch on for cheque deposits too. I think the most common ATM transaction has to be a quick, under $100 withdrawal. - Kevin Costain
coda: NFC is the new GSM. - clive boulton

Ooo, Ian, could be a scary season at Villa Park... - Tom Guarriello
I don't take my Pebble off at night. - Francine Hardaway
i think wearing a watch at night is not a great thing - Chris Hale
Pebble's apps are so hard to get to and use that I never use them - Francine Hardaway
I contributed to a kickstarter campaign for this device that can monitor my sleep. All i have to do is clip this little clip onto my pillow case. Much better than a wearable at night - Chris Hale

that Motorola watch looks nice - Tina Chase Gillmor
I'd rather see sensors small & implantable (nod to Tina) with local xmitters. - Ian McGee
I wonder if that tech will make it into the smart watches. If it takes me only 10 min. to charge the watch that would be acceptable for me, imho - Chris Hale
This Keynote could be Apple's biggest since Macworld 2007 - Moe Glitz from iPhone
I wouldn't buy a watch that signalled how much money I have. That's crass - Francine Hardaway
Tina, did you see the cool charger that comes with the new moto 360 watch? It is really cool, it props the watch up at an angle and turns it into an almost alarm clock style display - Chris Hale
I like the Swatch 51 - Ian Waring
The 360 does look cool. - Kevin Costain
Scoble should be a commercial director! - Chris Hale
Blood Sugar for Diabetics - Ian Waring
I ordered my 360 and they said it should arrive by the 19th - Chris Hale
Should show Jack Bauer touching his iWatch and shit blows up! - Kevin Costain
There are some cultures where crass is the objective, right Francine? - Tom Guarriello
Apple is totally screwed -- or is it? http://uncrunched.com/2014... - clive boulton
They are trying very hard to get that Ian Waring, but so far the most accurate way is through tears - Francine Hardaway
Yes, Tom. Just not mine:-) - Francine Hardaway
Infrared on skin looking good - Ian Waring
Dick Tracy has an iWatch! - Kevin Costain
I expect it will embed an M7 collecting health and activity metrics, which can be synched back to the phone at a later point. iPad sync even better! - SImonB
if Apple watch include NFC then i think it will be useful - Chris Hale
But not there yet continuously Ian W - Francine Hardaway
I know, Francine. It's amazing how different people are. - Tom Guarriello
Nike deprecated its hardware, Tim Cook on BOD, indicates Apple goes healthy - clive boulton
NFC is far east, wrong end of the sales transaction.. - Ian Waring
You always say notifications, Steve - Francine Hardaway
what do you mean Ian? - Chris Hale
i still wear a watch.. basically because i need to know the time faster than it takes to open my phone, but in the code, and look.. or even have my phone in some situations (wet.. my watch is water resistant).. - mary hodder
Robert is on to something. The fashionable iThingie has to do something useful, different than other watches or something cool that your iPhone doesn't do easily or well. - Alex de Soto
I wear the Pebble, Mary, because I like the notifications. - Francine Hardaway
I would love to know, statistically, how many people *used* to wear a watch but have stopped wearing them (mainly because of smartphones). - Kevin Costain
I gave up my watch for the iPhone, CWL, but then the Pebble brought me back - Francine Hardaway
low bat drives wearing my solar g-shock. - clive boulton
Open Garage Door, Turn down the heat, turn off the bathroom light, call home - Arnie Klaus
I no longer wear a watch due to my smartphone. for sure - Tina Chase Gillmor
i still havent found my favorite wearable yet. I do seem to have collected a bunch of them. Up, up24, misfit shine, Omate truesmart. My latest wearable toy just arrived this week after waiting a year. Its a Embrace+ band. I kinda like it - Chris Hale
NFC happens on a specialist reader at the end of a sales transaction. Better to see customer coming into store, knowing their preferences, sell ups, card details, email to send receipt to, done... - Ian Waring
Lists... ask Robert. - Frank Paynter
Will Apple launch a new iPhone, new iPad Air plus the iWatch on Tuesday. Seems abit crowded - Moe Glitz from iPhone
The big compelling feature for a return to watches has to be health services.. - Kevin Costain
in that context @Ian, I totally agree with you. I see a future where I could use my watch/wearables nfc to do 3 really cool things. 1. I could use it as a payment device (NO MORE CREDIT CARDS). 2. Use it for permiter access (Unlock my doors on my car or my house or safe) . 3. Social interaction (It would become the long awaited business card killer/drink napkin killer) . I cant wait to exchange social info via tapping watches or tapping watches to phones. - Chris Hale
What's inside that mysterious white building extension for Tuesday 's Keynote. - Moe Glitz from iPhone
High time major sites have anticipatory capabilities (Steve's twitter points) - clive boulton
@Chris Hale - you lost me at the uber dorky tapping of phones.. haha. Sounds like taking a picture with an iPad. - Kevin Costain
But I think that's right about Twitter. It was a public utility until it wasn't - Francine Hardaway
Thought there was another Apple event due in October... anyone know? - Ian Waring
1. A Catwalk. 2. Future Apple Store Demo. 3. iBeacons Showcase for the new iPhone and iWatch - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Moe: I think that building would be perfect for a fashion show and/or health/home demos. - Alex de Soto
Tim Cook's keynote rewritten..? http://online.wsj.com/article... - clive boulton
taking a picture with an ipad is pretty lame. I think tapping a watch or phone to another phone could be useful if the user experience and ease of use is done right. - Chris Hale
How about a watch as a form of ID? - Kevin Costain
watch NFC - clive boulton
I have money set aside to replace by Nexus 5 with one of the new iPhones - Ian Waring
@Kevin, that would be really awesome. I have been really , really wanting to do away with my wallet altogether. Slowly but surely the traditional wallet is approaching death - Chris Hale
Right now i am experimenting with a Loop pay since my coin credit card hasnt arrived. It is a device that is meant to replace the credit card. - Chris Hale
Funny thing is that the iBeacon code senses no signal, then can sense signal, then within 10', then immediately adjacent to handset - Ian Waring
400 is kinda pricey for a watch type device. I paid 250 for the moto 360 - Chris Hale
Effectively iBeacon can act as an NFC reader - Ian Waring
I doubt that it will fundamentally change lives - Francine Hardaway
When will this simply turn into tech burnout? - Kevin Costain
have yall seen that new bluetooth headset Motorola announced today? I think its pretty slick looking - Chris Hale
Maybe not so pricey for something that provides biofeedback, connection to your home, sends you notifications, keeps your appointments, makes payments,.... - Tina Chase Gillmor
I hope the iThingie can control my Apple TV. - Alex de Soto
So they want to be Burberry? - Francine Hardaway
Ears are a good place to measure blood flow... - Ian Waring
Chanel? - Francine Hardaway
Tina, personal digital assistant: Microsoft Cordova (they've moved best engineers to Cordova) - clive boulton
Alex... yes it would be nice to have the remote control strapped on to us so it's not easy to lose - Tina Chase Gillmor
And marketing them to create desire. - christina sponselli
Apple *affirms* new technologies - is not creating them. - Kevin Costain
@ian, have you seen the Dash? http://store.bragi.com/ It is a pair of bluetooth earbuds that monitor heart rate and bloodflow using the ears - Chris Hale
Adding Data Layers to Fashion - Moe Glitz from iPhone
On Red Jony Ive worked with Marc Newson, who designed the Atmos 566 clock, which goes for $95,000 - SImonB
@Clive, you meant Cortana , right? - Chris Hale
Yup, Cortana (need more sbux) - clive boulton
Making Dumb Beauty Products more Human - Moe Glitz from iPhone
this could be a common functional block (electronics) packaged as various object of beauty designs, across a whole set of price points, some of it real art. - SImonB
you writing cordova caught my eye because I develop apps using cordova/phonegap - Chris Hale
@Chris - no, not seen them. My wife is diabetic (borderline), would like non-invasive blood sugar monitoring. For me, I want daily microbiome sequencimg ... longer term! - Ian Waring
Yes.. Chanel - mary hodder
i am kinda weary of payments through apple - Chris Hale
Interesting to see if Ahrendts plays a role on Tuesday - Tom Guarriello
Beats Mixr On-Ear Headphones: $249.95. So $399 doesn't seem expensive for an Apple product. - Alex de Soto
beats is overpriced headphones as it is - Chris Hale
Ah, I've played with phonegap/cordova. Redmond needs a new name for Bob's successor - clive boulton
sandwich? now I'm hungry! - Tina Chase Gillmor
If the wearable becomes the ticket to the dance, then it WILL transform the world - Francine Hardaway
I develop mobile apps for cisco using phonegap, they really like the types of stuff you can do with phonegap - Chris Hale
Tell your wife to go vegan and cut out sugar, Ian W and she won't need anything - Francine Hardaway
It looks like Square's iPad reader - Ian Waring
Till functionality on iPad - Ian Waring
@scoble is right. He's even right-er when we talk about getting into kitchens in CANADA - Kevin Costain
did Adobe buy phonegap. Google contributes to cordova - clive boulton
ubiquity is the key to any of these mobile payment platforms. Support for IOS and android is key - Chris Hale
For this payment stuff to take off, it has to work with what exists right now (IE a prepaid credit card working in old school creditcard machines) - Kevin Costain
Adobe did buy them, that is why the platform has two names. Phonegap is adobe's and the open source version is cordova - Chris Hale
oh, no. He's gonna blow! - Tina Chase Gillmor
Sugar's already out... - Ian Waring
"Big fucking money here!" - Kevin Costain
Sbux sucks in Manhattan. Anything to shorten the line. - clive boulton
Oh oh! - Alex de Soto
duck and cover. Scoble be seeing red - Chris Hale
Scoblequake - Alex de Soto
There will be some shoplifting - Francine Hardaway
Go into a Starbucks in Rio De Janeiro and try using passbook to pay. NOPE - Kevin Costain
Francine: not much. Why? Cameras and face detection. - Robert Scoble
Ah, right - Francine Hardaway
There is queueing in Phoenix. And in every Sbux in every airport I ever to to - Francine Hardaway
Noticed Sbux wi-fi changed from AT&T to Google Starbucks in Seattle area. - clive boulton
Do banks favor cashless transactions? Read that it saves them $$ - christina sponselli
see i think if someone can really focus on potential security benefits of these new payment types and call sell it to the public well, it will win this game - Chris Hale
Some franchise Starbucks (rest stops and airports) didn't event take their own gift cards! - Alex de Soto
And the BANKS. What about the BANKS. - Kevin Costain
Same in NYC Clive - Tom Guarriello
Isn't everybody going to want to partner with Apple?? - Tom Guarriello
This week has been a big one for hacks and honestly this maybe has been the year of hacks. It is showing america we need to shape up our payment platforms - Chris Hale
you know.. i really don't ever have a problem paying for anything.. it's super easy everywhere.. so what is the value add? - mary hodder
Nike must be counting on a partnership with Apple - clive boulton
NFC is more secure - Jan Winter
RFID? - Kevin Costain
but as a business.. why would i give a coupon to someone about to buy something already? - mary hodder
I really like the notion of payments via a phone so i don't have to worry about someone stealing my credit card number. - Chris Hale
NFC, bet I end paying some elses coffee. - clive boulton
Apple restricting Beacons from retailer brand to their own app only - to stop you getting notified to death as you walk past stores - Ian Waring
@mary, a lot of times its the manufacturer of the product making the coupons, not the store necessarily - Chris Hale
Mary if I sold cereal A and "saw" you picking up cereal B I'd offer a coupon. Also if you bought just one box and I wanted you to buy 3. - Ian McGee
manufactures also use coupons to get you to get a discound on product b when paired with purchase of product a - Chris Hale
Will the iWatch have a fingerprint sensor? - Alex de Soto
I've used Square cash but it never caught on - Francine Hardaway
Starbucks invested heavily in Square - Ian Waring
fingerprint sensor watch for celebrity passwords :) - clive boulton
Chris.. yes.. but how would you see me looking at a different cereal? that's very difficult to figure out.. and then send just the person looking elsewhere .. your product coupon - mary hodder
hahah @clive i just laughed out loud - Chris Hale
I think it's more like they can't grow into other pieces of the financial industry - Francine Hardaway
Francine I use IFTTT and cash@square.com to send allowances to my kids. ;-) - Ian McGee
Square had a strange investment in one retail outfit - Ian Waring
I do not need to use square to do a transaction if apple has card transfer. - Arnie Klaus
@mary, it can be accomplished with bluetooth beacons but I think this is a very delicate space that needs some real careful attention to how its launched to keep from being creepy - Chris Hale
If Square doesn't take payments via the iWatch, they may eventually be in trouble. Card swipes should be on the way out. - Alex de Soto
order from bed ! Yes! - Tina Chase Gillmor
now.. a restaurant could see me in front of another restaurant.. looking at menu.. GPS is specific enough..and send me a coupon to lure me over.. but other than services like hair or nails or restaurants.. it seems like coupons are far fetched.. - mary hodder
(smutty!) - Ian Waring
Apple lets you do that only if you have an iPHone and you have to scan - Francine Hardaway
Coupons based on buying habits are pretty powerful. I foresee the more stuff i buy, the more relevant coupons i will start seeing. I can't wait till i get reminders or coupons when i pass an aisle i forget something. - Chris Hale
Starting with college campuses is a good idea - Francine Hardaway
Not near Princeton yet - Tom Guarriello
@robert makes an excellent point(as usual) - Chris Hale
+1 Keith - Frank Paynter
well.. people walk into restaurants and pick up to to orders and the people sitting who don't yet have food know.. it's all a queue and it's in order - mary hodder
Tina: more convenient than iWatch, tap Steve and he'll bring you coffee in bed :) - clive boulton
Their Opex will be orders of magnitude more than Downtown - Frank Paynter
Apple is coming for all of them... - Tom Guarriello
Good line - Frank Paynter
Clive....I might have to setup a payment protocol for that! - Tina Chase Gillmor
I think the publics trust in apple is a little shaken in the wake of the hacks this week. - Chris Hale
chris.. i get that coupons based upon what i buy is one way.. yes.. but frankly they have to ask me for my purchase history.. if it's a store that is different than the one i shop in.. just taking it is creepy, and weird.. and actually depending doesn't comply with various laws depending on jurisdiction - mary hodder
tina: bedcoin! - clive boulton
Clive ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
john's mic is hitting his shirt. oy - Tina Chase Gillmor
thx steve - Tina Chase Gillmor
But the icloud hack used Elcomsoft.. which actually will crack into everything we use.. regardless of two-factor auth.. yes.. Apple gets the blame here publicly.. but frankly everything you touch is vulnerable.. there are backdoors for law enforcement with every serivce and technology you use - mary hodder
@mary, the stores will incentivize you to grant them access to that information. Its the same idea behind rewards cards or club cards. Its the exact same information. It wont be something that just happens when you are a stranger in the store or opt out of giving your data to the company - Chris Hale
i have to get glasses like John. I'm out of fashion like Boy George - clive boulton
Bedcoin. I love that. - Francine Hardaway
Don't ask Steve about his Boy George story - Tina Chase Gillmor
Chris.. i hope so (re asking for my data) but I don't use any cards or reward systems due to the data sharing and lack of transparency about what is happening.. and i recommend others don't.. - mary hodder
you'll be sorry - Tina Chase Gillmor
You're not wrong, Steve. Playing both bets. Hedging - Tom Guarriello
how many bedcoin's for a sausage biscuit ;) - clive boulton
NFC can be used for stuff other than payments so what is the harm in having that alongside beacons - Chris Hale
I think you should call this show Tapingo! - Francine Hardaway
the problem with sharing data is most people are afraid to do it.. because there is so much creepy stuff going on.. i've done research on it.. 92% of the people we surveyed hide or lie about their data regularly out of fear and disgust - mary hodder
chat rooms been discussing celebrity fngerprints and bedcoins! - clive boulton
and that was before Snowden - mary hodder
well , Robert scoble has convinced me over the years to not really fear sharing of my data about me - Chris Hale
Chris: I post my naked photos to Facebook public. - Robert Scoble
The benefits outweigh the drawbacks. - Chris Hale
Well, Mary Hodder would disagree on that privacy issue - Tina Chase Gillmor
If privacy is dead.. i want you to put your credit card info here.. i need a new computer - mary hodder
Apple like most technology companies haven’t grasped the ethnography of privacy controls changes over a lifetime. - clive boulton
@clive that was very well put - Chris Hale
Chris.. you don't know the drawbacks.. people are making decisions about you based upon all this data.. and you don't even know - mary hodder
I need a sneeze switch - Tina Chase Gillmor
1Password is going to be worth a bigger fortune after iOS 8 comes out - Tom Guarriello
thanks chris - clive boulton
people always have done that though @mary. Credit scores are the same type of thing. Decisions being made based on data about me - Chris Hale
Chris, yes.. but the FCRA has some regulating effect. but most of our data isn't regulated.. - mary hodder
I think most people have way too much faith in technology companies and don't do due diligence on how to secure some of there basic accounts - Chris Hale
And how about the "interceptor" cell towers? http://www.popsci.com/article... - christina sponselli
People need security counseling. - Chris Hale
two factor harder on mobile (because phone provides auth) - clive boulton
If your insurance company raising your car rates.. based upon who you are friends with in FB.. you'll never know.. but it's legal and they do it.. its in their financial statements - mary hodder
Famous people broadcast their past on Social Media - Moe Glitz from iPhone
I love messing around with the guys when they are "off" camera - Tina Chase Gillmor
I agree with Keith - Chris Hale
Except make it a lot easier, which iOS 8 is going to try - Tom Guarriello
Too easy for Hackers to second guess Famous People's personal passwords - Moe Glitz from iPhone
but Elcomsoft will still get through to Apple's data on people.. because law enforcement gets a pass.. and a backdoor - mary hodder
now that @mary i am really not a fan of. The law enforcement back doors. - Chris Hale
Thumbprint + 1Password in iOS 8 - Tom Guarriello
Pure adult films - Ian McGee
I think someone maybe a Scoble type should really be starting to bring more attention to what types of info those systems can get at , and also what the legal bounds of what they can get at - Chris Hale
Under My Thumb - Moe Glitz from iPhone
like i dont know what types of info can be drawn without a warrant and what type of info can be obtained with different types of warrants - Chris Hale
RIP @ESLundquist - clive boulton
@mary very good points earlier, i like to see and hear different points of view. Part of why i like this show - Chris Hale
Condolences to you guys on losing a friend. It's hard getting old, and this is only one reason why. - Tom Guarriello
He wasn't old - Tina Chase Gillmor
No, I meant the process of getting old, Tina. Losing friends and loved ones. - Tom Guarriello
Sorry to hear yall's friend passed. He sounds like a great person. - Chris Hale
Chris.. it's not about warrants.. it's about the backdoors existing, then Elcomsoft writes software to get into them, then hackers steal the software.. then they hack accounts.. and the Elcomsoft stuff can get to Apple but also about 100 other sites and services.. everything you use.. and Android stuff, Blackberry, Microsoft phone os, etc. - mary hodder
It sucks when your friends start to die - Francine Hardaway
Mike's finally seen off the crazy lady. - clive boulton
thanks steve - mary hodder
Great show, thanks! - Robert Scoble
Life can be a real bitch some days - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Mary, i might try and check out G3 soon. Id be interested to see what yall talk about - Chris Hale
GG is one of the highlights of my week. Thanks, Steve. - Tom Guarriello
So sad. I love G3 BTW - Francine Hardaway
Thanks steve and gang. Great show this week - Chris Hale
You've done some good when you get a GG eulogy - clive boulton
Good show. 'night all - Ian McGee
Chris.. sure it's a little different than GG.. but now i have to go back and listen to yesterday's show.. to figure out what steve was yelling about (possibly) - mary hodder
hehe - Chris Hale
Mary.... I have no freaking idea. I'll grill him on that - Tina Chase Gillmor
moto ear bud Chris Hale 'hinted' at http://www.motorola.com/us... - clive boulton
Yeah, they looked kinda cool IMHO. I am over my limit on bluetooth headsets for the year though - Chris Hale

The Gillmor Gang — Dan Farber, Robert Scoble, John Taschek, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor.

iPhone6 NFC rumors are definitely heating up - Tom Guarriello
And the "starts-up" are the core of infotech and the global networking environmnet, amiright? - Frank Paynter
I'm predicting Sept. 9 will unveil the "Internet of iThings" including wearables. - Alex de Soto
"Adorable Wearables" is my new start-up, I'm hoping Kleiner Perkins will front me a few billion for the idea. - Frank Paynter
I am really hoping NFC will be on iphone 6. I am getting sick and tired of carrying around credit cards. - Chris Hale
Favorites are a great signal for engagement for brands, too - christina sponselli
Endorsements - Moe Glitz from iPhone
I see a few of us are a little loopy from being out on a school night, las tnight - Tina Chase Gillmor
I wont be buying an iphone6 but apple really needs to choose a direction on mobile payments since they are really in the industry spotlight and I think that NFC registers will become ubiquitous if apple finally throws its weight behind this communication standard. - Chris Hale
Chris... Apple is getting into payments full blast - Tina Chase Gillmor
payment industry really needs some technological disruption. It is an industry that is overdue - Chris Hale

I wonder if anybody from Apple is allowed to go to Burning Man. - Alex de Soto

I have 3 technology toys I am planning on testing out soon to decide how I want to rid myself of credit cards. I will be testing out Google Wallet on my phone, Loop pay fob, and I am hopefully also getting my beta coin card. - Chris Hale
these are some ADORABLE WEARABLES! - Frank Paynter
Forget the iWatch. On September 9th, Apple may show us more than one "embodiment" of their "wearable" mobile devices. Some of them coupling with various styles of electronic wearable accessories like a wristband. With more devices and accessories to couple with (desk, travel, home and car accessories, and sports equipment) to come. - Alex de Soto
Apple need a product launch in spring cause too many products released in fall - Moe Glitz from iPhone
fall is xmas presents, spring is macs - Kevin Marks

I seriously believe these smartwatches biggest and most valuable use case will be for home automation purposes - Chris Hale
not sure about that clive- - Kevin Marks
John, can the phone use both cellular and wireless signal? - christina sponselli
Apple HomeKit is all Siri driven... - Ian Waring
I'm with John. Leave the phone behind. Chip miniaturization and efficiency will make it possible. - Alex de Soto
I envision a world here pretty soon where your watch can be used for permiter access like unlocking your lockitron or august door locks, and maybe as you walk from room to room, the home knows where you go and turns on lights, etc - Chris Hale
Continuity feature. - Alex de Soto
The piconet will have a variety of instruments. I agree that the internet of household things will be driven by an onbody instrument. - Arnie Klaus

Ifttt - Ian Waring
Would not want another "telephone" but a device able to connect to the network. - Alex de Soto
I totally agree with @kevinMarks on notifications being useful use case for watches. I am totally onboard with smart watches because I would rather drain a watches battery than deal with the serious battery drain from using my phone all the time - Chris Hale
I'm guessing the big box at the announcement location is a futurama house. - Arnie Klaus
Pretty sure that the iWatch will be marketed around monitoring your Health Wellbeing - Moe Glitz from iPhone
i wish I could post a photo to this chat - Tina Chase Gillmor
Here is how the enterprise can use smart watches. It might collude with health insurance companies to offer you a discount on insurance based on how much fitness you do based on monitoring the sensors on a smart watch - Chris Hale
I agree with @keith - Chris Hale
I think you are all underestimating the fashion statement that the Iwatch will be - Tony Stanislawski
Agree, Tony - Tom Guarriello
Apple's wearable(s) must be different from all of those watches or they will fail. - Alex de Soto
Rather than piddy little screen and battery, give me a full wrist strap like Fuelband wearable like a watch 24/7 - clive boulton
Health health health - Ian Waring

The Rolex of wearables - Tom Guarriello
I agree with @scoble - Chris Hale
Exactly Robert! - Tony Stanislawski
Glucose level monitor using infra red on skin - non invasive - Ian Waring
watches will only succeed if they are fashionable - Chris Hale
@scoble is right; people will use wearable technology to make a statement about who they are - Josh Bradshaw
Rolex $3000 up - clive boulton
Robert is correct. But it will be more than one thing. - Alex de Soto
does that work, ian? - Kevin Marks
The phone is 2007 - Tom Guarriello
I still wear a real watch! Can't wait to replace it. - Tony Stanislawski
Phones are also getting bigger and bigger. - Alex de Soto
I think Scoble stumbled onto an interesting idea. Using a watch to exchange information like phone numbers or contact info is a brilliant use case for watches. - Chris Hale
Poor Scott! - Tony Stanislawski
Stumbled, Chris?? Lol - Tom Guarriello
chris that's been the "beam contact" idea for years, never quite works - Kevin Marks
back in my day we used to get digits by the old fashioned pen and napkins - Chris Hale
wasn't that angstro? - Kevin Marks
I think all the doubters are seriously underestimating what Apple can do! We don't know we want one yet. 2 years from now everyone will have one! - Tony Stanislawski
Casio G Shock: one to beat. - clive boulton
Personalized iBeacons? - Alex de Soto
the problem with sending notifications to your watch about the person you are talking to is that they see them first if your wrist is facing them - Kevin Marks
I know its the "beam contact" concept but nobody has really made a simple ubiquitous/popular way to easily wirelessly transmit information. I think if apple does NFC on there phones and possibly on the watch or beacons on a watch , i think its huge for that notion of contact less close quarters information transmission - Chris Hale
I think that the big white building going up next to the Flint Center is all about fashion. - Alex de Soto
Don't know if it works. In the labs yes, but accuracy in the field is much more key - Ian Waring
Flint Center is an interesting choice - they used that for the Mac and iMac launches - Kevin Marks

@Kevin, which watch are you sporting right now? The samsung? - Chris Hale
Siri will be key on the iWatch. - Moe Glitz from iPhone
the LG - Kevin Marks
I think the challenge will be to get men to wear the fashion wireless earing type earbuds. - Arnie Klaus
How many young people use email outside of school? They will not care about getting email on their "watch." - Alex de Soto
I don't think siri will be good on a watch. I think the hard part of UI and functionality on a watch is knowing/teaching a user what they can/can't do with the watch - Chris Hale
ok google is good on the watch - Kevin Marks
wait. That's Steve's job to call bullshit - Tina Chase Gillmor
Ok Google has started to give answers in the same accent as read to it - Ian Waring

The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Keith Teare, Kevin Marks, Dan Farber, and Steve Gillmor — woke up and fell out of bed in what was the most dramatic quake for most of us since ’89 and in my case LA in the ’70s. For the wine industry, this will have major impact, coming as it does as the Napa Valley goes to harvest what is called 25% of the US market. The major… Read More - Steve Gillmor

On board :-) - Ian Waring

Sold my Chromebook Pixel ready to fund an iPhone 6 ;-) - Ian Waring
Here. Not sure my wine is, though. ;-) - Robert Scoble
Skype is having troubles starting up for me. Hopefully it works. - Robert Scoble
Plug in the computer ! - David Malone
It looks like it might work. - Robert Scoble
OK, call now - Kevin Marks
Yo! is reporting every Marc Andreessen tweet storm to me now - but doesn't remember history if I want to go back later - Ian Waring
But I don't even see the test pattern - Francine Hardaway
I'm getting the old SF venetian blinds - Ian Waring
Twitter inserting random extras into my feed. If an RSS feed did that, i'd eject it - Ian Waring
Have real test card nw - Ian Waring
s/nw/now - Ian Waring
Have audio - Ian Waring
Bonjour - Ian Waring
lots of rubble on main street http://www.sfgate.com/news... - Kevin Marks
earthquakes are probably one of the biggest reasons i really dont think i could ever move to CA - Chris Hale
I feel the same way about the midwest and tornadoes - Kevin Marks
i went to twitter first - Tina Chase Gillmor
yeah, i didn't see much on Facebook at first - Tina Chase Gillmor
i think twitter is a better source for realtime news. IMHO - Chris Hale
I just wanted confirmation that I wasn't dreaming or a dog wasn't crazy-scratching on the bed - Tina Chase Gillmor
Wonder if the Westin in Napa suffered much damage. - Francine Hardaway
Francine: I doubt it. That's a modern building. The damage is with bricks falling. - Robert Scoble
greenwalsd - Jan Winter
I was surprised that I couldn't get instant confirmation - Tina Chase Gillmor
What do yall think about state or gov involvement should be in using tech to notify the public about natural disaster type issues like this? What do yall think it should be? - Chris Hale
usgs is the place for confirmation - Kevin Marks
yeah i think there should be a break thru tweet for something like disasters or dangerous situations - Tina Chase Gillmor
they have feeds and tweets - Kevin Marks
i wonder which list I am on in Scobles FB - Chris Hale
there used to be a thing called snapkite that displayed mobile images posted against a given search terms in Twitter - Ian Waring
@tina that was what I was curious about. In TX My cell phone provider sends me amber alerts that they make a pain to opt out of. Historically radio has the emergency broadcast functions. Why doesnt someone propose a way to handle notifications of this type of thing. Seems kinda ludicrous i can get an amber alert about missing children but nothing about earthquakes. - Chris Hale
Facebook used to have a auto generated list based on places, where in the feed would be showing the news items from the places I have live or live. In events like this this would be useful since most of the people from that particular area would be posting more about the event. And combined that with commenting system and FB's media type, it would be better.. - Satyajit
@Chris - yes, agree. In these instances I want credible info fast. and I want it pushed at me - Tina Chase Gillmor
@the dutch goverment has implemented a notification system, alerting people on mobile in case of an emergency - Jan Winter
i think the assumption is that you feel an earthquake if it matters, and they can't give you advance notice - Kevin Marks
snapkite.com and search for earthquake - Ian Waring
i got a really weird warning from my cell phone company a month or two ago when there were flash floods in my area. I realized that notification was darn near useless because i had no context. I couldnt for the life of me figure out where it was that was actually flooded. - Chris Hale
All Facebook needs is a Real-time Events #Page - Moe Glitz from iPhone
did he say Kremlinology? - Tina Chase Gillmor
John Lenin - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Tina, can you modernize him please? - Francine Hardaway
only thing with snapkite.com is that searches for pizza is a safe bet, "wife" isn't... - Ian Waring
Moe he,he - Tina Chase Gillmor
I look a twitter, then http://earthquake.usgs.gov/ - Kevin Marks
its interesting to see the landscape of how peoples disaster recovery strategies have subtly changed as technology has evolved - Chris Hale
Francine - if only I could. I did give him children. Best I could do. ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
Chelsea and Temple said their glass rattled, Robert. But Chelsea slept through it. - Francine Hardaway
They have modernized him a bit - Francine Hardaway
if i were in california i would look to see if ifttt has a earthquake recipe and see if you could hook it up to phillips hue lights and make them glow a certain color in case of earthquake. Seems like that is a good use case for multi colored lights - Chris Hale
The Beatles - Moe Glitz from iPhone
1:1 - they were poor - Ian Waring
Manchester Utd urgently need Di Maria - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Every brick in the wall - Ian Waring
OK we did have on thing that was on the floor in the studio but it was gingerly positioned on a shelf to begin with. It's Steve's SciFi award. You can see it on the back shelf - Tina Chase Gillmor
oooh, Kevin's drinking something very green today. - Tina Chase Gillmor
Green smoothie? - Tina Chase Gillmor
i am so angry at that coin issue - Chris Hale
I funded ScratchJr to teach kids 5-7 to program on iPads and Android Tabs - Ian Waring
I personally think coin is now dead on arrival. - Chris Hale
I bought a PONO - Francine Hardaway
yesterdays email i got from coin made me decide to switch to try out loop instead. Anybody here tried loop? http://www.looppay.com/ - Chris Hale
Or that is, I ordered a PONO. I'll let you know if I get one - Francine Hardaway
Kale, celery, apple, zucchini, lemon, ginger juice blend - Kevin Marks
And I thought you said PORNO - Moe Glitz from iPhone
i think coin will be DOA because by the time coin finally releases its generation 1 product to the masses, we will already be starting down the road of converting to chip and pin. - Chris Hale
Money Apps will win in the long term - Moe Glitz from iPhone
@Moe, what do you mean? - Chris Hale
Surprised that PayPal has not made bigger waves in the App World - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Chris Hale I agree - Francine Hardaway
I will now start re-reading Neil Young's book. I just finished Graham Nash's book, and I think I liked it better. - Francine Hardaway
I agree. Its so frustrating from a consumers point of view though. I am sure this whole thing has been talked about half to death but Google wallet seemed like a good solution, NFC payments seem like a great solution. I really want to be able to do away with all my magnetic cards. Wallets annoy me alot. I have back problems and keeping a wallet doesnt help. - Chris Hale
Whoever gets the right Money App for Mobile wins big time - Moe Glitz from iPhone
i agree. I think nothing has saturated the market as a winner because apple keeps sitting on the fence. - Chris Hale
I have finally decided to move away from an iphone as my main device. - Chris Hale
needs to be secure. see the point of sale hacks that were in the news this week - Jan Winter
@keith thats awesome you are using virtual teams. I wish more folks adopted that model - Chris Hale
I'm not super impressed with ProductHunt. - Kevin Costain
Kevin: why? - Robert Scoble
Start-ups are less and less clue-full, maybe? I mean, "Plink?" "Uber Watch?" - Frank Paynter
why what? - Kevin Marks
@Jan, i totally agree. I ultimately want to use my phone for payments. Some of the things I look forward to is the ability to quickly change credentials if somehow my account becomes comprimised. - Chris Hale
haha.. I think Robert was asking me KMarks.. :) - Kevin Costain
I could name that tune in two notes... - Frank Paynter
I should keep my receipts for my most recent startup to see how much its costing me. So far i am at about 300 , dunno what it will be by launch time - Chris Hale
Yo got much better now that it gives breaking news - Francine Hardaway
That's how I get my Marc Andreessen Tweet storm notifications now - Ian Waring
It's not entertainment, it's the successor to Twitter - Francine Hardaway
I posted that pic 20 mins ago - Kevin Marks
Product Hunt is not a major company; it's niche. The general public doesn't care much about finding new products. I, however, love Product Hunt. - Francine Hardaway
I just installed the iOS version of ProductHunt.. and I'm very interested in what it does.. Very interested. But, I look at it, and it feels very clunky. Information about each of the products feels hard to get to. I think this could really improve. I'm sticking with it for now because it's probably better than pouring over every technology post in Reddit.. haha - Kevin Costain
Kevin, try Product Hunt on the web. Much better - Francine Hardaway
hey @keith, if the pono doesn't work well it looks like it could double as a really fashionable doorstop - Chris Hale
Kevin: agreed. (Costain). - Robert Scoble
I will try that Francine. Thanks. - Kevin Costain
Why are reddit censoring Product Hunt posts? - Ian Waring
with that last cut from Kevin to Keith it looked like Keith was about to grab Kevin's drink - Tina Chase Gillmor
Apple Apple Apple - Ian Waring
shouldn't it be a user decision to opt-out on certain news events? - Jan Winter
Everything's amazing, and nobody's happy -- Louis CK - Francine Hardaway
Which is crap - Ian Waring
I watched it. It wasn't fun. - Francine Hardaway
North Americans are culturally miserable. - Kevin Costain
Anybody seen the movie, "The City That Waits to Die?" Maybe forty years old or more but interesting and contains the same kind of good info Robert is sharing. - Frank Paynter
Jean Claude Gassee has just released a Monday Note about IBM:Apple and alliances history - Ian Waring
Welp, guys and gals.. I have to run. Stay safe... have a good one. - Kevin Costain
My router went down during the Cuban missile crisis... but I was in a public school. - Frank Paynter

Not quite - very detailed analysis - Ian Waring

Anyone want to buy a Netbook! ;) - J.C. Bouvier
My son gets Tesco on his lock screen as he walks into their stores already - Ian Waring
One Annual Software Update - perfect - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Does Marks and Sparks serve up a signal? - Frank Paynter
@kevinmarks don't hate on Texans - Chris Hale
Siri vs Siri: "No, the RED ZONE is for loading and unloading. The WHITE ZONE is for...." - Dale Lature
Android Annual Software Updates - not perfect - Moe Glitz from iPhone
I'm not hating texas, that's just what I sound like while faking an accent for my car - Kevin Marks
Actors Studio with Robin Williams was great too - Ian Waring
One audience member had to be taken to hospital for laughing too much - Ian Waring
Robin Williams was the best Live Performance Comedian ever - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Love Bob Newhart. Wish he and Don Rickles would do more. - Chien-Yu Lin
You did put that up - Francine Hardaway
@kevinmarks I know. Just razzing you a bit. - Chris Hale

Chien-Yu... that would be great. They are good friends afterall - Tina Chase Gillmor

They do comedians going for coffee - Francine Hardaway
Google+ is dead - Tina Chase Gillmor
TIna, I really disagree. - Francine Hardaway

I find bits of PHP very annoying, but you don't have to use them. - Kevin Marks
i liked it.... seems like all we could think about this week - Tina Chase Gillmor
@kevin, very true. I cheat when i write javascript i use http://php.js when i get pissed that js doesnt have some of php's cooler functions - Chris Hale
@ben, i really appretiate you stepping in and please take my comment as a compliment for your initiative. I am sorry Kevin is talking "bollocks", but i do believe the speed things happen perfectly justifies going for nodejs with ANY indie initiative. - flyinthesoup
this is due to NPM and all the ecosystem of modules and flexible app creation taht comes with it - flyinthesoup
@Kevin, where do you work again? Its cool that you get to work on writing in a bunch of different languages - Chris Hale

yes @Chris, but we're talking about a single language in front & back end - flyinthesoup
flyinthesoup: I'm happy for you to use node for your projects - i use it form some of mine too. You seem to have a bad case of "golden hammer" syndrome when you insist everyone else should use it too - Kevin Marks
I plan to try some Go next - Kevin Marks
If you want to read me saying nice things about node, try http://epeus.blogspot.com/2012... - Kevin Marks
so @kevin, in what capacity are you advising startups. I am curious because I have a few initiatives I am working on and I know I always need advice on different aspects of things. - Chris Hale
i see you insisting in "TAGGING" me withou arguments on why would anyone build anything that can not be fully explored to become a mobile app as a single page front end app consuming as many APIs people want to and this is not ideology, this is effectivity - flyinthesoup
I'm glad you find it effective. - Kevin Marks
Ben finds PHP effective - Kevin Marks
why is that impossible for you to accept? - Kevin Marks
Great, everyone can respect that, but in fact this is not a matter of finding effective, but being effective. - flyinthesoup
I am most interested in the platforms I can use that let me be the most effective one man development team possible. - Chris Hale
Chris: It varies - sometimes I'll do day rate consulting, sometimes I'll have an ongoing advisory board role (with stock or retainer) email me kevinmarks@gmail.com if you want to chat - Kevin Marks
because it is not wroth it. if you are the one developing it, you'll certainly benefit A LOT. - flyinthesoup
what have you built, flyinthesoup? I'd love to see examples - Kevin Marks
also, Chris indiewebcamp.com/irc is a good place to talk about independent web development - Kevin Marks

@Chris, never give up. @Kevin is certainly a very good advisor. Try to balance selling your time to execute other people's work and gather enough experience to build your own. - flyinthesoup
thanks @flyinthesoup. I have been struggling lately to find time to complete work on my own stuff. This is one of the big reasons I am starting to get into node. Anything that can speed up my dev time is a great thing for me to utilize. Work smart , not harder - Chris Hale
