Nothing Ear (1) review

Carl Pei says he looked around and saw a lot of the same. He’s not alone in that respect. Apple didn’t invent the fully wireless earbud with the first AirPods, but it did provide a kind of inflection point that sent many of its competitors hurtling toward a sort of homogeneity. You’d be hard-pressed to cite another consumer electronics category that matured and coalesced as quickly as Bluetooth earbuds, but finding something unique among the hordes is another question entirely. These days, a pai...

Here’s Nothing’s $99 Ear (1) buds

It’s been just over five months since Carl Pei first told the world about Nothing. Perhaps it’s just the way time moves these days or maybe it’s the fact that the company has trickled out information in the intervening months. Whatever the case, it feels like we’ve been waiting on today’s full Ear (1) reveal forever. It’s been a pretty savvy strategy for a brand-new consumer hardware startup, building on the built-in buzz/anticipation from Pei’s connection to OnePlus. We’ve covered a number (but...

Nothing’s Ear 1 earbuds will feature noise cancelling and run $99

Fittingly, we don’t know a lot about Nothing. The young hardware startup has, however, done a stellar job building hype around precisely that fact. In the lead up to the July 27 launch of the company’s first product, the Ear 1, the Nothing marketing machine has released information in drabs and drabs. Ahead of the event, we sat down with founder Carl Pei for a wide ranging interview about launching his latest hardware company. During the conversation, he revealed some additional information abou...

Nothing founder Carl Pei on Ear 1 and building a hardware startup from scratch

On July 27, hardware maker Nothing will debut its first product, wireless earbuds dubbed Ear 1. Despite releasing almost no tangible information about the product, the company has managed to generate substantial buzz around the launch — especially for an entry into the already-crowded wireless earbud market. The hype, however, is real — and somewhat understandable. Nothing founder Carl Pei has a good track record in the industry — he was just 24 when he co-founded OnePlus in 2013. The company ha...

Extra Crunch roundup: Video pitch decks, Didi’s regulatory struggles, Nothing CEO interview

The numbers don’t lie. According to DocSend, the average pitch deck is reviewed for just three minutes. And if you think a senior VC is studying the presentation your team crafted for months as if it were a Fabergé egg — well, you might be disappointed. Even if you are lucky enough to land a meeting, it’s more likely that a junior person went through your pitch and ran it up the chain. “The biggest lie in venture capital is: ‘Yes, I read through your deck,’” says Evan Fisher, founder of Unicorn ...

Horseback Riding in Banff: Trail Riders Experience

Horseback riding is not really my thing. I’ve been petrified of horses since my horse-crazy mother put me on a pony when I was five. And it’s not for lack of trying. I have been on trail rides all over Canada – from PEI to Ontario and Alberta. I even gamely hopped on a horse in Costa Rica and splashed through rivers and held on for dear life as we climbed up and down muddy mountains for literally hours. But despite all my time on a horse, I remain unskilled and know any horse I ride smells my fe...

Nothing’s first product, the Ear 1 earbud, launches in June

Say what you will, Nothing has been doing a fine job milking its upcoming launch for all it’s worth. The company has spent the last several month’s teasing the arrival of its first product. The launch will find the company entering the already extremely crowded earbuds category in June, with the arrival of the simply named Ear 1. Founder Carl Pei teased the forthcoming product in a blog post today, while adding that the company was still a ways off from fully achieving its mission statement of h...

Cool Modern Textiles from Interface

Kari Pei, Interface VP of Global Design, is paying homage to great women designers who have influenced her—like icon Florence Knoll, “a pioneering designer and entrepreneur who created the modern look and feel of America’s postwar corporate office.” Pei notes Knoll’s influence in her own designs for Interface. Examples abound. Like Textured Gridlock from the Chelsea Estate Collection (above), a highly touchable textile that evokes the compact fuzz of Scottish wool. Digitized Tuft from t...

Carl Pei’s Nothing shows off the tobacco pipe-inspired ‘Concept 1’

Over the past several months, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei has turned his concept for “Nothing” into one of the buzziest hardware companies in recent memory. It’s an impressive feat for a company that has offered close to zero information about its upcoming offerings. The company has raised around $22 million, including a $15 million Series A last month, led by GV. Nothing recently announced that it will be releasing its first product — wireless earbuds — over the summer. It’s a familiar and satu...

Carl Pei’s ‘Nothing’ now owns the Essential brand, and I’m kinda hyped

Here’s one bit of surprising tech news: Essential, the smartphone company launched by Android co-creator Andy Rubin, is not dead quite yet. The brand has instead been acquired by Nothing, the upstart tech company created by OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei. The news, via a report by 9to5Google, comes out of left field, considering Pei had so far only teased upcoming earbuds from his new company. While the idea that Nothing might be considering getting into smartphones isn’t surprising considering Pei...

Roger Mandle, Who Ran RISD And Co-Founded Qatar’s Museums, Dead At 79

As director of the Toldeo Museum of Art, he organized a pathbreaking (and record-breaking) El Greco exhibition.

The US and China are breaking up. The only question now is how ugly it will get.

Madoka Ikegami - Pool/Getty Images; Samantha Lee/Business Insider The question is not when or whether the US and China will decouple. Decoupling has already begun, and the questions now are how deep it will go and how smoothly it will be carried out. As Beijing has flexed its muscles in Asia and around the world, the US — along with much of the West — has stopped trusting Chinese leadership to act in good faith. Once participants in China's rise, Western nations now see it as adversarial....
