WGBH Innovation Hub Gadget Review – August 2013

Kara Miller invited me back to her Innovation Hub program on Boston Public Radio for another gadget review. This time we discussed the ThermaCell Mosquito Repellant, the ATN Night Scout night vision binoculars, and the Garmin Oregon 600 handheld GPS device. Certainly a strange variety of products, I’ll give you that, but that’s what makes this segment so much fun. Check it out…

WGBH Innovation Hub Gadget Review – January 2013

After joining Kara Miller on her popular Innovation Hub radio program on WGBH Boston Public Radio in December to talk about mCommerce I was invited back to join her for a new periodic gadget review. We recorded a couple weeks ago at the WGBH studios in Boston and talked about six different consumer gadgets. Part one (of two) of the segment airs tomorrow morning at 10am and again Thursday at 9pm. In part one Kara and I discuss three gadgets: the Fitbit One, the Kindle Paperwhite, and the Canon EOS M. Please tune in to 89.7 FM or stream it live online. If you can’t listen live you can just listen to it below. In part two we discuss three other gadgets and I’ll share it here when it’s available.

I’m looking forward to continuing this but more importantly hopefully you will too.

Is the Phone the New Wallet? I’m not so sure.

A couple of weeks ago I was interviewed on Boston Public Radio’s Innovation Hub with Kara Miller. The discussion was about mobile payments, mobile shopping, and other consumer spending and payment trends. The broadcast aired again this morning and can be heard here on demand.

This morning I wrote a blog post on the Litle & Co. blog to further explain my thinking on mobile payments. What do you think? Am I too sour on the prospects for mobile payments in the near term?
