018 : Peering into the future of tech with Dan Howley

Daniel Howley Laptop MagazineThis episode of the podcast is a little different from the others. Usually my guests share their entrepreneurial stories, step-by-step, in order to help you on your journey. But sometimes we need to step back and take a look at the bigger picture.

This episode is all about ideas. My guest today is Daniel Howley, senior writer at LAPTOP Magazine. We spend an hour talking about tech. But not today’s tech, we talk about what’s going to be happening tomorrow and beyond.

Do you know who made the most money as mobile developers? The people who built the very first iOS apps. If there’s a new paradigm-shift technology coming, you want to start thinking about it now so that you’re able to get in on the ground floor when it launches.

If you’re a technology novice, this episode will take you out of the novice stage.

Here’s what we chat about:

  • What do people mean when they say “wearables”
  • Why smartphones are just a transitional technology
  • The two types of people in the world: people who like Google Glass and everyone else
  • Apple isn’t the first out with technology — it waits until it has the best product
  • Internet connectivity…untethered
  • Why T-Mobile may soon be the cellular company to beat
  • Can you really call it 4G speed when it only works on five street corners?
  • Pseudo-social networks like Snapchat and Secret and why they’re the future
  • How Snapchat is relevant even if you’re not sending nudes
