If you’ve been on Twitter today, you probably would’ve seen that it’s World Emoji Day – which, in my world, is reason to celebrate!

While you may think it trite to celebrate those little icons we use to represent our feelings, I think it demonstrates a cultural shift much larger than you or I.  (more…)

Building mobile networks: how Australia is a global success story

Tech and Innovation

I have been at the Mobile World Congress over the past few days. During this time I’ve been struck how the discussion has consistently returned to how to attract the commercial investment necessary to build world class mobile networks.

This is not surprising. With the growth in mobile data, a high functioning mobiles sector is now a necessary pre-condition to economic development and global competitiveness.

However, to unlock the huge benefits of mobility for the global economy – e.g. to move the developing world from 2G to 4G, to transform the way businesses connect and to deliver opportunities like e-health, smart city andM2M – we must attract capital investment in mobile networks.

Let me say from the outset that ever since I can remember, I have been a fan or professional wrestling (more commonly termed “sports entertainment” these days). Hardly a weekend of my childhood went by without me watching World Championship Wrestling and cheering the good guys and booing the baddies.

Times have changed, but there are still some basic “rules” of wrestling that remain – good guys don’t always win, and the referees tend to miss the “blinding obvious” foul tactics.

Given the number of sports that now rely on the third umpire to adjudicate close calls, its probably a good thing that wrestling is more “entertainment” rather than “sport”.

One of the most exciting media events I was invited to at this year’s CES was the launch of the WWE Network – scheduled to go live in the US on 24 February 2014 and to be rolled out to Australia, UK, Canada, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong and other regions in late 2014.

The evolution of the Connected Home will really take centre stage in 2014. I am excited to bring our customers some great innovations in this space this year.

On my recent trip to the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas I met with dozens of global Telco/Cable operators and partners. Our goal was to build relationships, share best practices, and see what they have going on in the Connected Home space. Some themes that stood out for me at the CES were Advanced Home Networking, the evolution of the Smart Home, and multi-screen entertainment. (more…)

Thanks for reading my posts from Las Vegas and the world’s largest electronics show recently.

My time at CES was split between looking up old friends from previous visits, then making sure I was within walking distance to attend the Compass Intelligence Mobility Awards Press Luncheon.

So what grabbed my attention? Below is a list of my favourite products in the last days of CES. (more…)
