  1. Apple’s Post-iPhone DOOM

    Despite the usual doom and gloom reporting that we got leading up to Apple’s Q3 2019 financial results — or stock manipulation depending on your point of view — the company managed to largely beat expectations.

    But not escape the doom and gloom. Not entirely.

    I get that there are people and press that are glass half empty and some, like myself, who tend towards glass half full. But, increasingly, all we’re seeing is glass smashed and all the tasty beverage spilled out all over the table, and that’s just a waste of good beverage.

    iPhone revenue was down 12% year over year, but the active install base — those billion phones in our pockets, y’all — was up thanks to switches, upgraders, and new customers alike.

    Mac and iPad were both up. Services revenue, which includes Apple Music and Apple Care, was up 13%. Wearables, which includes Apple Watch, AirPods, and Beats, was up 50%.

    So, what’s the problem?

    Well, depending on how you tilt your head and squint, factoring in seasonality and a myriad of other factors, for the first time since 2012, the iPhone accounted for less than half of Apple’s revenue.

    And, where Apple was previously accused of being…

  3. When Software Eats the Real (Estate) World

    Buying a home is in many ways the pinnacle of the American dream. And yet the way things work today, it’s a painful process. Real estate agents, brokers, banks, notaries, title insurers, and many other intermediaries all make for a convoluted, difficult, and expensive process for home buyers and sellers alike.

    In this presentation from a16z’s annual Summit event, a16z general partner Alex Rampell explains how as consumers get used to less friction and more transparency in the age of mobile, software is finally beginning to disrupt buying a home — from discovery to purchase to finance and more.  Including even disrupting the nature of home ownership itself.

  7. HONDA e Prototype | Fully Charged

    By far the most captivating and talked about concept car of the last 5 years was Honda’s little pearlescent white Urban EV. That was 2017. This is now. Confusingly the perfectly descriptive ‘Urban EV’ name has gone and instead been replaced by ‘e Prototype’, only this isn’t really a prototype. This is a 95% finished EV Honda that goes on sale this year, and which Honda hopes will recapture the company’s mojo. Does it deserve to? Jonny finds out with a secret tour of the vehicle from its Japanese designers.

    Presented by Jonny Smith @carpervert Filmed and edited by Mark Taylor-Hankins @inksharkman Music by Martin Jones @martipants

  8. Secret History of Silicon Valley

    [Recorded: November 20, 2008]

    Today, Silicon Valley is known around the world as a fount of technology innovation and development fueled by private venture capital and peopled by fabled entrepreneurs. But it wasn’t always so. Unbeknownst to even seasoned inhabitants, today’s Silicon Valley had its start in government secrecy and wartime urgency.

    In this lecture, renowned serial entrepreneur Steve Blank presents how the roots of Silicon Valley sprang not from the later development of the silicon semiconductor but instead from the earlier technology duel over the skies of Germany and secret efforts around (and over) the Soviet Union. World War II, the Cold War and one Stanford professor set the stage for the creation and explosive growth of entrepreneurship in Silicon Valley. The world was forever changed when the Defense Department, CIA and the National Security Agency acted like today’s venture capitalists funding this first wave of entrepreneurship. Steve Blank shows how these groundbreaking early advances lead up to the high-octane, venture capital fueled Silicon Valley we know today.

  10. What’s Next for Marketplace Startups

    The past and future of marketplace startups — where are we? Ever since eBay popularized an internet meeting place for buyers and sellers of, well, just about everything, we’ve been waiting for 100 other at-scale marketplaces for everything else, including services.

    In this hallway conversation, Frank Chen and Li Jin from a16z’s Deal & Research team talk about why there aren’t 100 thriving marketplaces for services yet — and what’s changing to make this next wave of marketplace startups super exciting.
