Resuming uploads on ARMdevices.net after my father’s funeral

Posted by – July 17, 2013

It’s been more than a month now that I have been trying to dry the house in Switzerland that my father inundated when he died in the shower without having a house insurance. I’ve been scraping off floor carpets and doing some of all the stuff that needs to be done. I’m now taking a little break from that here on the Kos island in Greece, where I am now going to spend time on the beach Wi-Fi and my 3G sim card to publish hundreds of videos that I’ve filmed last month in Asia. I plan to soon start automatically publishing a new video on http://ARMdevices.net every 12 hours, if I can find an easy way to queue publishing up automatically. I also plan to launch some new services for distributors of smart devices worldwide, so check back for that. I would like to hire a young student type enthusiast of my video-blogging to help me with the writing of long relevant titles, descriptions and to help me manage my video publishing queue on YouTube and on my Blog. Let me know if you may be interested.

The whole night of the 1st of April 2013, during the last time that I saw my father (March 29th to April 8th), me and my father watched these YouTube videos (here embedded as a 45-video playlist) during the whole night. Read more about how I watched those YouTube videos with my father at: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL7xXqJFxvYviz1rtxUWTvCkIpqOjjXNo-

My father is dead

Posted by – June 11, 2013

Gérard was my father, he watched many of my videos but he didn’t tell me much about what he thought about them. I wish I had geared my father up with a wearable computer to detect his heart-attack, if that is what killed him. My father died a few years too early to be able to take part in Singularity, as artificial intelligence can soon use video and our recorded responses to make us live forever believably in a virtual reality. But my father never wanted to be recorded, pictures with him are rare, especially in the last 20 years. I visited him in Switzerland about 10 times a year in the last few years using Easyjet. He lived alone since my mother left him 20 year ago, but he loved talking to people. My father could amaze anyone with his smart and fast wit filled with humor, cultural references, football references. He could start talking with anyone in the street, in stores, at stadiums, and he’d be able to entertain them and talk at least half an hour about football. My father has been fully invested in watching every single football match since the early 50′ies, he knows everything about every football player and trainer throughout Europe. His and my favorite teams are Servette FC in Switzerland, Inter Milan, Napoli, Juventus in Italy, Borussia Mönchengladbach and Dortmund in Germany.

Please understand that I am delaying the publishing of about 50 videos that I filmed in Asia, in Shenzhen and in Computex Taipei these past 2 weeks as I am flying back to Europe to be with my Sister and to take care of the things that need to be done.

A couple of months ago, the last time I saw my father, my father and me enjoyed watching youtube videos a whole night, read more about that night on the playlist page:

Cambrios Silver nanowires to revolutionize touch screens and displays

Posted by – June 9, 2013

Sriram Peruvemba is the new Chief Marketing Officer at Cambrios, the company that is shipping silver nanowire based inks to the transparent and flexible conductor markets. Their ClearOhm material is already replacing ITO and enables high-conductivity transparent film ranging from 10 to 300 Ohms/square. In this video, Sri showed us examples of products already in the market – All-In-One computers from LG Electronics, large area monitors from eTurbotouch, mobile phones from NEC/NTT Docomo, kiosk monitors from G-Vision etc.- that use their ClearOhm silver nanowires. While at Computex we saw more and more devices with touch screens in them, the market appears to be growing rapidly and having more transparent and more conductive touch screens makes perfect sense. And with electronic paper and flexible OLED products getting close to mass production, transparent conductors that can also be flexible/bendable/rollable would be very desirable. We will bring you more updates on this technology in future videos.

Pipo tablet company history

Posted by – June 8, 2013

Pipo CEO Ben Lai talks about Pipo’s company history, going back to their flash memory based Mp3 players in 2003, then moving to making Mp4 players, working with Rockchip since 2006, thus talking about Rockchip’s history, making a 1.8″ Mp4 color display PMP in 2006, then moving on in 2007 or 2008 to more advanced Mp4 players (so called by Chinese companies as Mp5 players) (that could play all video codecs without re-encoding the videos), Allwinner is the ARM spin-off of Actions MIPS, then Actions recently move back to ARM also. Everyone makes ARM processors now except Realtek (which is a huge trouble for Realtek). Then Pipo moved forward to make GPS, game players, picture frames, Mp4 boom boxes, separating functions of the ARM Powered devices around 2010, Pipo produced one of the Archos LCD based e-readers, then released initial resistive tablets in 2010, and since 2012 the Pipo brand has been launched with focus on high-end quality differentiation for the Chinese Tablet market.
