My Japan Times article on the Sharp Galapagos tablet

by Warren

Can’t believe I forgot to post this earlier, but I wrote an article for the Japan Times last week about Sharp’s Galapagos tablet, a pad device aimed straight at the Japanese market. Sharp claims otherwise, but “Galapagos” has become a term to define the uniqueness and weakness of the Japanese mobile phone market, which created some of the most advanced and esoteric phones on the market, in a sealed environment where innovation was allowed to flourish but never interact with the outside world.

With the onset of the iPhone, that market is crumbling. I personally see many, many iPhones everywhere in Tokyo, and that has to strike fear into the heart of every Japanese cell provider (other than Softbank, presumably making a killing by offering the iPhone exclusively in Japan.)

So I don’t hold out much hope for this Sharp tablet. They may know something I don’t, but I can’t see a device like this competing in any way with the iPad.

The Tiger: Author Video

by Warren

Recently I was contacted by StudioNow to create an author video for Random House about “The Tiger,” a new book by Vancouver author John Vaillant. It’s an interesting story about a poacher, a Russian game warden/badass and a very smart, very deadly tiger, and the violent maelstrom all three find themselves in while pursuing their own goals. Check out the video below.

Gawker’s guide to journalism jobs

by Warren

Ouch. Not pretty, and it has a ring of snarky truth about it. Not that Gawker’s ever been known for sunshine and lollipops, mind you.

More writing from yours truly in the mainstream media, this time in BC Tech. First up, an article about Lambda Solutions, who aim to become the “Ebay of knowledge.” I also wrote a “this season’s hottest gadgets” that unfortunately got a little truncated for the web edition.

New video for the Opus Hotel

Yes, it’s not all nerdery and Doctor Who round these parts (though mostly, it is). I recently shot and cut a video for the Opus Hotel, one of the tonier establishments in Vancouver, all about their “On the List” party featuring DJ Stonebridge. Check it out at the Opus website.
