“Browsers had to be Reinvented in Order to Stay Relevant”: Opera SVP

It is perhaps the most innovative browser we have seen for a while, complete with a colorful and interactive interface. But what inspired Opera Software to venture into something as radical as Opera Neon? Nimish Dubey talked to Krystian Kolondra, senior vice president, Opera for computers, to get answers to that, and other questions. Krystian Kolondra, SVP for Opera for […]

     
 
 

[TechTalkies] “We Just Wanted to Sell Ten Thousand Phones” – Manu Jain, Xiaomi India

[TechTalkies] “We Just Wanted to Sell Ten Thousand Phones” – Manu Jain, Xiaomi India

“It has been better than what I expected, much better than what I expected. In every possible perspective.” Manu Jain shakes his head in mild disbelief when asked how his journey with Xiaomi has been since 2014. He may be an ‘Internet entrepreneur and wannabe cartoonist’ as per his profile on Facebook, and he might also be the co-founder of […]

 
     
 
 

Exit Opera, Now Playing Vivaldi: Jon von Tetzchner, the Browser Composer

Exit Opera, Now Playing Vivaldi: Jon von Tetzchner, the Browser Composer

As he walks across the lobby to meet you, you are always struck by how quietly he walks for a tall person. Vivaldi CEO Jon von Tetzchner cuts a very tall and imposing figure (though he gently corrects my description of his height from “six feet seven inches” to “six feet five, please”) but he walks silently – we could […]

YU Said It: Rahul Sharma on One Year of YU

It has been slightly more than a year since YU, the sister brand of Micromax, which was targeted at value for money seeking Indian geek consumers, was launched.

Will Carl Pei Ever Settle? Never! [Interview]

“How do you get the idea of a company like OnePlus?“, “Oh and THEN how do you get about setting it up?“, “Oh wait, and what did you do at school before that?“… what if you get a chance to ask Carl Pei, the co-founder of OnePlus, all these questions? We did. And so we asked them. And a lot […]

 
     
 
 

Micromax, YU and I: Meeting Rahul Sharma!

Micromax, YU and I: Meeting Rahul Sharma!

There are some people who charge into an office, as if wading into battle. Rahul Sharma is not one of them. The founder of Micromax and YU tends to ooze in quietly, a bit like PG Wodehouse’s iconic gentleman’s gentleman, Jeeves. I had been waiting in the reception of Micromax’s head office in Gurgaon (near the Indian capital of Delhi) […]

 
     
 
 

“We Do it for the Users”: Opera’s Twinkle-Toed Tenor

“We Do it for the Users”: Opera’s Twinkle-Toed Tenor    

Twinkle toed. Those are not the words that come to mind when you see Lars Boilesen. The man, in true Nordic tradition, is tall. And with a great head of hair. And in supremely non-Nordic tradition, looks a bit like author-actor-iPhone fan Stephen Fry. And yet the man drove into an Indian mall in a rickshaw, got off and shook […]

Tete-à-tete with TechPP – The Team Behind Table Tennis Touch

Few games have made the kind of waves this year that Table Tennis Touch has. The game is winning rave reviews around the world (well, we did call it The Best Mobile Sports Game…Ever in our own review) for its design, interface and incredibly realistic gameplay. And it was made by just two people – Jordan Kirk and James Gratton, […]
