Android announces six new features, emphasizing safety and accessibility

Android shared information today about six features that will roll out this summer. Some of these are just quality of life upgrades, like starring text messages to easily find them later, or getting contextual Emoji Kitchen suggestions depending on what you’re typing. But other aspects of this update emphasize security, safety, and accessibility. Last summer, Google added a feature on Android that basically uses your phone as a seismometer to create “the world’s largest earthquake detection netw...

The fighter mentality that founders need to learn from Mark Zuckerberg

In my experience the best founders develop a fighter mentality. Mark Zuckerberg was a fighter, and without that mentality Facebook would never have achieved its full potential. Here’s what I saw over 13 years working for Zuck: One of Mark’s first big fights was with his own board + exec team. They tried to convince him to sell the company to Yahoo for $1B in ’06. At the time FB had 5M users (all college) and was 2 yrs old. At the age of 22, Mark stood to gain $300M personally. How could he sa...

Lakers endorse assistant Jason Kidd, who is linked to head coaching opportunities

The Lakers returned every member of a key lineup from the championship in 2020: the team’s coaching staff. After two seasons as a lead assistant, it appears Jason Kidd might be coveted elsewhere as the job market heats up across the league. With the Boston Celtics’ job open and other positions possibly opening up as the offseason marches along, Kidd – who previously coached the Brooklyn Nets and Milwaukee Bucks with a 183-190 record and three postseason appearances – is seeing his stock rise as ...

Skiff, an end-to-end encrypted alternative to Google Docs, raises $3.7M seed

Imagine if Google Docs was end-to-end encrypted so that not even Google could access your documents. That’s Skiff, in a nutshell.
