Google Nest Mini กับ Google Home Mini: Smart Speaker Showdown


Google เพิ่งประกาศ Nest Mini ซึ่งเป็นอัปเดตของ Google Home Mini ในปี 2560 – แต่ทั้งสองต่างกันอย่างไรจริงเหรอ? Google สัญญาว่าจะมีการปรับปรุงครั้งใหญ่ในงาน Made By Google 2019 ที่ทำให้แฟน ๆ รู้สึกตื่นเต้น เรากำลังจะเปรียบเทียบ Mini รุ่นใหม่กับรุ่นเก่าและพิจารณาว่าการอัปเกรดนั้นคุ้มค่าจริงหรือไม่หรือคุณควรวางราคา $ 49 ต่อ Pixel Buds หนึ่งคู่

ออกแบบ

Nest Mini นำมาซึ่งการเปลี่ยนแปลงการออกแบบเล็กน้อย Nest Mini มีสีเดียวกันทั้งด้านบนและด้านล่าง นอกจากนี้ยังมีตัวเลือกสีดั้งเดิมสามแบบของ Google Home Mini (Chalk, Charcoal และ Coral) ที่มีสีโบนัสชื่อ“ Sky” ซึ่งเป็นสีฟ้าอ่อน ดูเหมือนว่า Google จะให้สีสายไฟที่แตกต่างกันไปอย่างน่าเสียดาย การพูดถึงพลังงานเป็นเรื่องที่น่าเสียดายที่ Nest Mini เลือกใช้การเชื่อมต่อที่เป็นกรรมสิทธิ์ในขณะที่ต้นฉบับนั้นมีพอร์ต Micro USB

การเปลี่ยนแปลงที่โดดเด่นอย่างหนึ่งของ Nest Mini ก็คือมันมีที่แขวนแบบสลักอยู่ด้านล่างซึ่งทำให้ง่ายต่อการจัดวางบนผนังที่คุณเลือก คุณไม่จำเป็นต้องใช้ตัวยึดติดผนังแบบพิเศษเพื่อแขวน Mini ในตำแหน่งที่สะดวก ในขณะที่บางคนจะพอใจกับตัวเลือกนี้ แต่ก็ยังมีเรื่องของการคอร์ดไฟเพื่อไปยังทางออก

ทั้ง Nest Mini และ Google Home Mini ก่อนหน้านี้มีผ้าแบบเดียวกันครอบคลุมลำโพงของพวกเขาเช่นเดียวกับไฟแจ้งเตือนฝัง อย่างไรก็ตาม Nest Mini รวมเอาความมุ่งมั่นของ Google ในการผลิตอย่างยั่งยืน ผ้าชั้นนำของ Nest Mini แต่ละชิ้นทำจากวัสดุรีไซเคิล 100% ในขณะที่ตัวเครื่องภายนอกทำจากพลาสติกรีไซเคิลประมาณ 35%

เสียง

Google เพิ่มเกมเสียงด้วย Nest Mini อุปกรณ์มีเบสเพิ่มขึ้นเป็นสองเท่าจากเดิมโดยมีไมโครโฟนตัวที่สาม (เทียบกับสองตัวใน Google Home Mini) ที่เพิ่มเข้าไปในอุปกรณ์เพื่อให้แน่ใจว่าผู้ใช้จะได้ยินเสียงแม้ในขณะที่เพลงกำลังส่งเสียงดัง Nest Mini มีเสียง 360 องศาและตัวขับขนาด 40 มม. เช่น Google Home Mini แบบดั้งเดิม

หนึ่งในแง่มุมที่ท่วมท้นเกี่ยวกับ Google Home Mini คือมันไม่ได้เป็นลำโพงที่ยอดเยี่ยมสำหรับการฟังเพลง มันดีพอสำหรับการโต้ตอบกับผู้ช่วยของ Google แต่ล้มเหลวในฐานะวิทยากรที่มีความหมายสำหรับพื้นที่ขนาดใหญ่ในบ้าน

ผู้ช่วยของ Google

นอกเหนือจากเสียงแล้ว Nest Mini ยังเพิ่มคุณสมบัติที่ Home Mini ดั้งเดิมสามารถฝันถึงได้ สิ่งที่โดดเด่นที่สุดคือชิปการเรียนรู้ของเครื่องโดยเฉพาะ ในแง่ของคนธรรมดาสิ่งนี้จะช่วยให้ Nest Mini (และผู้ช่วย Google) สามารถเรียนรู้นิสัยและพฤติกรรมของคุณเพื่อให้สามารถตอบสนองคำขอได้อย่างรวดเร็วและเป็นธรรมชาติ

นอกจากนี้ยังรวมสิ่งที่ Google เรียกว่า "การตรวจจับด้วยคลื่นเสียงความถี่สูง" แทนการมีกล้องจำนวนมากในบ้านและเปิดรับเรื่องความเป็นส่วนตัวอุปกรณ์ใหม่ล่าสุดของ Google สามารถตรวจจับได้ว่าคุณอยู่ใกล้หรือไม่

Nest Mini ยังคงมีการควบคุมการสัมผัสแบบสัมผัสเหมือนกันของ Google Home Mini ดังนั้นหากคุณเป็นแฟนของการแตะอุปกรณ์เพื่อเปิดใช้งานแทนที่จะพูดว่า "เฮ้ Google" ไม่ต้องกังวล – คุณลักษณะดังกล่าวยังคงอยู่ที่นั่น ขณะนี้มีไฟ LED แบบฝังเพิ่มเติมที่ขนาบไฟหลักสามด้านข้างของ Nest Mini เพื่อเพิ่มหรือลดระดับเสียง

ท้ายที่สุด Nest Mini สามารถใช้แผนการสมัครสมาชิก Nest Aware ที่ปรับปรุงใหม่เพื่อทำหน้าที่เป็นระบบเตือนภัยภายในบ้าน อุปกรณ์สามารถฟังเสียงที่สำคัญเช่นการเตือนภัยควันและคาร์บอนมอนอกไซด์และแจ้งเตือนคุณไม่ว่าคุณจะอยู่ที่ไหน นอกจากนี้ยังช่วยให้คุณสามารถติดต่อบริการฉุกเฉินจากอุปกรณ์ของคุณผ่าน Google Assistant เพื่อให้คุณเชื่อมต่อกับหน่วยงานที่เหมาะสมสำหรับพื้นที่ของคุณ

ราคา

Google Mini และ Nest Mini มีราคาอยู่ที่ $ 49 Nest Mini จะวางจำหน่ายในวันที่ 22 ตุลาคมจากร้านค้าปลีกรายใหญ่และออนไลน์ แต่คุณสามารถสั่งซื้ออุปกรณ์ล่วงหน้าได้ในวันนี้ Nest Mini มีคุณสมบัติใหม่มากมายที่ Google Home Mini ไม่ได้ทำและชิปการเรียนรู้ของเครื่องออนบอร์ดหมายความว่ามันจะดีขึ้นเมื่อเวลาผ่านไป หากคุณยังไม่ได้ลงทุนในหนึ่งในผู้ช่วยเหล่านี้และคุณต้องการ Nest Mini เป็นตัวเลือกที่ชัดเจน – เพราะราคาเดียวกันกับ Home Mini

ข้อมูลจะเปิดตัว Ticker ซึ่งเป็นแอพข่าวเทคโนโลยีที่มีค่าใช้จ่าย $ 29 ต่อปี – TechCrunch


นับตั้งแต่ก่อตั้งโดยนักข่าว Jessica Lessin ในปี 2013 The Information มีความโดดเด่นในด้านข่าวเทคโนโลยีเพื่อมุ่งเน้นไปที่รูปแบบธุรกิจที่ไม่ต้องลงโฆษณาและขับเคลื่อนด้วยการสมัครสมาชิก

ตอนนี้การเปิดตัวแอพที่กำลังจะเกิดขึ้นที่ชื่อว่า Ticker แนะนำว่า บริษัท กำลังมองหาที่จะขยายกลุ่มเป้าหมายในขณะที่ยังคงรูปแบบการสมัครสมาชิกนั้น

ข้อมูล อธิบายถึงทิกเกอร์เป็นแอพสำหรับผู้บริโภครายแรก สมมติฐานคือทุกคนที่จ่ายค่าธรรมเนียมรายปี $ 399 สำหรับการสมัครสมาชิกข้อมูลนั้นจำเป็นสำหรับงานของพวกเขาไม่ว่าพวกเขาจะเป็นนักลงทุนผู้ประกอบการหรือมืออาชีพอื่น ๆ ในอุตสาหกรรมเทคโนโลยี

ขณะนี้แอปใหม่ได้รับการออกแบบมาสำหรับทุกคนที่อาจสนใจติดตามข่าวสารล่าสุดเกี่ยวกับเทคโนโลยีล่าสุดและราคาที่จ่ายได้มากขึ้นที่ 29 ดอลลาร์ต่อปี (สมาชิกข้อมูลจะได้รับการเข้าถึงเช่นกัน)

<img class = "จัดตำแหน่งขนาดใหญ่ – ใหญ่ wp-image-1899073" title = "แอปสัญลักษณ์ข้อมูล" src = "https://techcrunch.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/1.-Ticker-TheInformation -Today.jpg? w = 637 "alt =" แอปสัญลักษณ์ข้อมูล” width=”637″ height=”680″ srcset=”https://techcrunch.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/1.-Ticker-TheInformation-Today.jpg 1024w, https://techcrunch.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/1.-Ticker-TheInformation-Today.jpg?resize=141,150 141w, https://techcrunch.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/1.-Ticker-TheInformation-Today.jpg?resize=281,300 281w, https://techcrunch.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/1.-Ticker-TheInformation-Today.jpg?resize=768,820 768w, https://techcrunch.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/1.-Ticker-TheInformation-Today.jpg?resize=637,680 637w, https://techcrunch.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/1.-Ticker-TheInformation-Today.jpg?resize=47,50 47w” sizes=”(max-width: 637px) 100vw, 637px”/>

เห็นได้ชัดว่าแอพได้รับแรงบันดาลใจจากส่วนการบรรยายสรุปของเว็บไซต์ข้อมูลซึ่งมีบทสรุปสั้น ๆ (มักมาจากการรายงานจากสื่อสิ่งพิมพ์อื่น ๆ ) ของข่าวเทคโนโลยีที่สำคัญ

ขณะนี้ทิกเกอร์จะรวมส่วนที่เรียกว่าวันนี้พร้อมบทสรุปของหัวข้อเทคโนโลยีประจำวันซึ่งคล้ายกับการบรรยายสรุป แต่เขียนขึ้นสำหรับผู้บริโภค นอกจากนี้ยังจะมีปฏิทินที่เน้นการเสนอขายหุ้น IPO การประชุมและกิจกรรมอื่น ๆ ที่ผู้อ่านอาจต้องการทราบ (ไม่รวม: บทความฉบับสมบูรณ์ของข้อมูลและการรายงานดั้งเดิม)

“ มากขึ้นเรื่อย ๆ เราได้ยินจากผู้อ่านที่ไม่มีเหตุผลทางธุรกิจในการติดตามเทคโนโลยี แต่พบว่ามันเป็นศูนย์กลางของชีวิตพวกเขามากขึ้นเรื่อย ๆ ” Lessin กล่าวในแถลงการณ์ “ เรากำลังเปิดตัวทิกเกอร์สำหรับพวกเขา – ทำให้พวกเขาสามารถเข้าถึงบทสรุปที่ดีที่สุดของข่าวที่สำคัญที่สุดที่เขียนโดยทีมงานของเราที่ The Information”

บริษัท วางแผนที่จะเปิดตัวทิกเกอร์ในปลายฤดูใบไม้ร่วงนี้ ในระหว่างนี้คุณสามารถสมัครได้ที่นี่

Zuckerberg พูดในวันนี้เป็นเวลา 40 นาทีที่มหาวิทยาลัยจอร์จทาวน์ และ จากนั้นก็ตอบคำถาม เพื่อแบ่งปันความคิดของเขาเกี่ยวกับคำพูดและ“ วิธีที่เราจะจัดการกับความท้าทายที่เสียงและอินเทอร์เน็ตแนะนำมากขึ้นและภัยคุกคามที่สำคัญในการแสดงออกอย่างเสรีทั่วโลก” เขากล่าวถึงวิธีที่“ เราต้องการความก้าวหน้าของการแสดงออกโดยปราศจากความตึงเครียด” คนชั้นนำที่จะสนับสนุนการดึงกลับมาในการแสดงออกอย่างอิสระ “ คุณวาดเส้นที่ไหน?”

n

Zuckerberg กล่าวว่าขณะนี้ Facebook มีพนักงาน 35,000 คนที่ทำงานด้านความปลอดภัยและงบประมาณด้านความปลอดภัยของ บริษัท สูงกว่ารายได้ทั้งหมดของ บริษัท เมื่อ IPO ซึ่งมีมูลค่า 5 พันล้านดอลลาร์ในปี 2555 Facebook จะลบหรือลบเนื้อหาที่มีอันตราย ถึงกระนั้นเขาบอกว่าเขาไม่ต้องการที่จะ“ ให้คำจำกัดความของสิ่งที่เป็นอันตรายขยายเกินกว่าที่จำเป็นจริงๆ”

n

สร้างวลีใหม่ซัคเกอร์เบิร์กตั้งข้อสังเกตว่า“ ผู้คนที่มีพลังแสดงความสามารถอย่างเต็มที่นั้นเป็นพลังรูปแบบใหม่ในโลก u2014 เอสเตทที่ห้า ควบคู่ไปกับโครงสร้างอำนาจอื่น ๆ ของสังคม”

n

n

ในการอนุญาตโฆษณาทางการเมืองบน Facebook แม้ว่าพวกเขาจะนำข้อมูลที่ผิดไป Zuckerberg ให้เหตุผลว่า“ โฆษณาทางการเมืองสามารถเป็นส่วนสำคัญของเสียงโดยเฉพาะอย่างยิ่งสำหรับผู้สมัครในท้องถิ่นผู้ท้าทายและกลุ่มผู้สนับสนุนที่มาซึ่งสื่ออาจไม่ครอบคลุม ด้วยวิธีนี้พวกเขาสามารถได้รับเสียงของพวกเขาในการอภิปราย” ในขณะที่อาจเป็นจริงระบบเดียวกันช่วยให้กลุ่มหรือผู้สมัครใดก็ตามที่มีเงินทุนมากที่สุดเพื่อครอบงำการบรรยาย

n

ฉันเพิ่งถกเถียงกันว่า Facebook ควรปล่อยโฆษณาทางการเมืองทั้งหมดจนกว่าจะมีการออกกฎระเบียบเพื่อป้องกันการใช้ข้อมูลที่ไม่ถูกต้อง ประธานาธิบดีทรัมป์กำลังใช้จ่ายมากกว่าคู่แข่งพรรคประชาธิปัตย์ของเขาหลายคนรวมกันในขณะที่ใช้เรื่องโกหกเกี่ยวกับพวกเขาวางแผนที่จะลบการแก้ไขครั้งที่สองเพื่อหาเงิน

n

Zuckerberg Georgetown Wideshot

n

ถึงกระนั้น Zuckerberg ให้เหตุผลว่า“ การห้ามโฆษณาทางการเมืองสนับสนุนผู้ครอบครองตลาดและใครก็ตามที่สื่อเลือกที่จะครอบคลุม” เขาไม่ได้กล่าวถึงผู้ที่ใช้จ่ายมากที่สุดหรือวิธีที่ Facebook สามารถเสนอการแสดงออกของผู้สมัครฟรีให้กับผู้ติดตามของพวกเขาเอง เขาไม่ได้แยกความแตกต่างระหว่างเสรีภาพในการพูดและเสรีภาพในการเข้าถึงหรือที่เรียกว่าแอมปลิฟายเออร์ที่จ่ายผ่านโฆษณา Instagram ประธานเจ้าหน้าที่บริหาร Adam Mosseri ได้กล่าวถึงความรู้สึกนี้ซึ่งเท่ากับโฆษณาและการพูด ทวีต “ ฉันเชื่อว่าผู้คนควรได้ยินสิ่งที่นักการเมืองพูดและประกอบความคิดของตัวเอง” หลังจากการอภิปรายแม้ว่า Mosseri ที่ยอมรับ u201c ฉันมักต้องการเราสามารถ u201d ห้ามโฆษณาทางการเมือง แต่บอกว่ามันซับซ้อนในการกำหนดสิ่งที่ทำและไม่ได้มีคุณสมบัติเป็นหนึ่ง

n

n

n

n

การใช้ประโยชน์จากข้อโต้แย้งที่น่าสนใจไม่สนใจว่าประธานาธิบดีทรัมป์ใช้จ่ายโฆษณา 4.9 ล้านดอลลาร์ในปีนี้เมื่อเทียบกับ 9.6 ล้านดอลลาร์ที่ผู้สมัครประชาธิปัตย์ 23 คนรวมกัน แซงหน้าพวกเขาทั้งหมด รวมกันเป็นของเดือนมีนาคม การห้ามโฆษณาทางการเมืองจะไม่ป้องกันผู้สมัครจากการพูดในสิ่งที่พวกเขาต้องการและถูกตัดสิน แต่มันจะหยุดคำพูดที่สมบูรณ์ยิ่งขึ้นของผู้สมัครที่มีน้ำหนักมากกว่า

n

โดยรวมแล้ว Zuckerberg ฟังดูมีความกระตือรือร้นและเอาใจใส่มากกว่าในคำให้การที่ผ่านมาของเขาที่ Capitol Hill ดูเหมือนว่าเขาจะรับช่วงจังหวะและน้ำเสียงของอดีตประธานาธิบดีบารัคโอบามาโดยส่งเสียงของเขาเพื่อเน้นความเร่งด่วนของความท้าทายที่เผชิญกับประชาธิปไตย อย่างไรก็ตามรูปแบบการพูดอนุญาตให้ Zuckerberg หลีกเลี่ยงการกดจุดของเขาในทันทีเช่นทำไมการโฆษณาทางการเมืองจึงสนับสนุนนักท้าทายหากเงินมีค่าใช้จ่ายมากที่สุด Zuckerberg ถือ ถาม & ตอบหลังคำพูดของเขาแต่กระแสของสิ่งนั้นไม่ได้ออกอากาศจากหน้าเว็บของเขาเช่นคำพูดที่เตรียมไว้และเขาส่วนใหญ่ยังคงย้ำประเด็นจากคำพูด

n

Zuckerberg ขับรถกลับบ้านด้วยธีมสำคัญที่มีอยู่ตลอดการพูดคุย เขาพยายามเชื่อมโยงแนวคิดของ บริษัท ในสหรัฐอเมริกาที่อาจทำการตรวจสอบการแสดงออกอย่างเสรีเพื่อปกป้องความปลอดภัยและการเลือกตั้งด้วยวิธีที่จีนตรวจสอบการพูด และในขณะที่ บริษัท อื่น ๆ เช่น NBA และ Blizzard ที่ทำธุรกิจสำคัญกับประเทศพยายามที่จะลดอิทธิพลของมันลง Zuckerberg พูดถึงสิ่งที่หนวดของค่านิยมของจีนสำลักคำพูดที่ไกลเกินขอบเขต

Nvidia Shield Android TV streaming device leaks via Amazon listing"},"content":{"rendered":"

The fact that Nvidia is updating its Shield TV hardware has already been telegraphed via an FCC filing, but a leak earlier today paints much more of a detailed picture. An Amazon listing for a new Nvidia Shield Pro set-top streaming device went live briefly before being taken down, showing a familiar hardware design and a new remote control and listing some of the forthcoming feature updates new to this generation of hardware.

n

The listing, captured by the eagle-eyed Android TV Rumors and shared via Twitter, includes a $199.99 price point, specs that include 3GB of RAM, 2x USB ports, a new Nvidia Tegra X1+ chip and 16GB of on-board storage. In addition to the price, the Amazon listing had a release date for the new hardware of October 28.

n

If this Amazon page is accurate (and it looks indeed like an official product page that one would expect from Nvidia), the new Shield TV’s processor will be “up to 25% faster than the previous generation,” and will offer “next-generation AI upscaling” for improving the quality of HD video on 4K-capable displays.

n

It’ll offer support for Dolby Vision HDR, plus surround sound with Dolby Atmos support, and provide “the most 4K HDR content of any streaming media player.” There’s also built-in Google Assistant support, which was offered on the existing hardware, and it’ll work with Alexa for hands-free control.

The feature photos for the listing show a new remote control, which has a pyramid-like design, as well as a lot more dedicated buttons on the face. There’s backlighting, and an IR blaster for TV control, as well as a “built-in lost remote locator” according to the now-removed Amazon page.

n

This Amazon page certainly paints a comprehensive picture of what to expect, and it looks like a compelling update to be sure. The listing is gone now, however, so stay tuned to find out if this is indeed the real thing, and if this updated streamer will indeed be available soon.

n

UPDATE:u00a0Yet another Nvidia leak followed the first, this time through retailer Newegg (via The Verge) This is different, however, and features a Shield TV device (no “Pro” in the name) that has almost all the same specs, but a much smaller design that includes a microSD card, and seems to have half the amount of on-board storage (8GB versus 16GB) and a retail price of around $150.

Airbnb may be another overvalued “unicorn,” but it’s no WeWork.

The Information this morning reported new Airbnb financials u2014 indicating a massive increase in operating losses u2014 that immediately call Airbnb’s future into question. Precisely, Airbnb lost $306 million on operations on $839 million in revenue, namely as a result of marketing spend, in the first quarter of 2019. In total, Airbnb invested $367 million in sales and marketing, representing a 58% increase year-over-year, in Q1. The company is gearing up for a major liquidity event next year and is making a concerted effort to rake in new customers, as any soon-to-be-public business would.

Given WeWork’s sudden demise, coupled with Uber and Lyft’s lukewarm performances on the stock markets, many have wondered how Wall Street will respond to Airbnb’s eventual IPO prospectus. Will money managers have an appetite for another over-valued Silicon Valley darling? Or will the market compete like mad for shares in the massive home-sharing marketplace?

n

But Airbnb, again, is no WeWork, and I wager Wall Street will have a much friendlier approach to its offering. For one, Airbnb’s co-founder and chief executive officer Brian Chesky isn’t dropping $60 million on private jets u2014 I don’t think. CEO behaviors aside, Airbnb has more capital in the bank than it has raised in its entire 11-year history, which is a whole lot of money. This is all according to a source who is familiar with Airbnbu2019s financials and shared this detail with TechCrunch following The Information’s Thursday morning report. As for Airbnb, the company told TechCrunch, “we canu2019t comment on the figures, but 2019 is a big investment year in support of our hosts and guests.”

Airbnb has attracted more than $3.5 billion in equity funding at a $31 billion valuation and has even more locked away in its bank account. Additionally, Airbnb has an untouched $1 billion credit line, the source said. Presumably, the referenced credit line is the 2016 $1 billion debt financing from JPMorgan, CitiGroup, Morgan Stanley and others.

n

Moreover, Airbnb has been u201ccumulativelyu201d free cash flow positive for some time, meaning that it’s seen more money coming in than going out during recent quarters, according to our source. It has been reported that Airbnb surpassed $1 billion in revenue in the second quarter of 2019 and in the third quarter of 2018, but we’re guessing the business did not top $1 billion in Q4 of 2018 or Q1 of 2019 because it if had, that information would probably have been “leaked.”

n

Finally, Airbnb has been profitable on an EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) basis for two consecutive years, the company announced in January. Gross bookings, meanwhile, are growing, as is Airbnb’s business offering and its experiences product.

n

Why does any of this matter, you ask?

Founded in a small Copenhagen apartment in 2004, Unity Technologiesu2019 makes a game engine u2014 a software platform for building video games. But the company, which was recently valued around $6 billion and could be headed toward an IPO, is becoming much more than that.

u201cUnity wants to be the 3D operating system of the world,u201d says Sylvio Drouin, VP of the Unity Labs R&D team.

Customers can design, buy, or import digital assets like forests, sound effects, and aliens and create the logic guiding how all these elements interact with players. Nearly half of the worldu2019s games are built with Unity, which is particularly popular among mobile game developers.u00a0

n

And in the fourteen years since Unityu2019s engine launched, the size of the global gaming market has exploded from $27 billion to $135 billion, driven by the rise of mobile gaming, which now comprises the majority of the market.

n

Unity is increasingly used for 3D design and simulations across other industries like film, automotive, and architecture and is now used to create 60% of all augmented and virtual reality experiences. That positions Unity u2014 as Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerburg argued in a 2015 memo in favor of acquiring it u2014 as a key platform for the next wave of consumer technology after mobile.

Unityu2019s growth is a case study of Clayton Christensenu2019s theory of disruptive innovation. While other game engines targeted the big AAA game makers at the top of the console and PC markets, Unity went after independent developers with a less robust product that was better suited to their needs and budget.u00a0

n

As it gained popularity, the company captured growth in frontier market segments and also expanded upmarket to meet the needs of higher-performance game makers. Today, itu2019s making a push to become the top engine for building anything in interactive 3D.

This article is part of my ongoing research into the future of interactive media experiences. This research has included interviews with dozens of developers, executives, and investors in gaming and other industries, including interviews with over 20 Unity executives.

Founding

n

Unity was founded in Copenhagen by Nicholas Francis, Joachim Ante, and David Helgason. Its story began on an OpenGL forum in May 2002, where Francis posted a call for collaborators on an open source shader-compiler (graphics tool) for the niche population of Mac-based game developers like himself. It was Ante, then a high school student in Berlin, who responded.u00a0

n

Ante complemented Francisu2019 focus on graphics and gameplay with an intuitive sense for back-end architecture. Because the game he was working on with another team wasnu2019t going anywhere, they collaborated on the shader part-time while each pursued their own game engine projects, but decided to combine forces upon meeting in-person. In a sprint to merge the codebases of their engines, they camped out in Helgasonu2019s apartment for several days while he was out of town. The plan was to start a game studio grounded in robust tech infrastructure that could be licensed as well.

n

Helgason and Francis had worked together since high school, working on various web development ventures and even short-lived attempts at film production. Helgason dropped in and out of the University of Copenhagen while working as a freelance web developer. He provided help where he could and joined full-time after several months, selling his small stake in a web development firm to his partners.u00a0

n

According to Ante, Helgason was u201cgood with peopleu201d and more business-oriented, so he took the CEO title after the trio failed to find a more experienced person for the role. (It would be two years before Ante and Francis extended the co-founder title and a corresponding amount of equity to Helgason.)

n

They recruited a rotating cast to help them for free while prototyping a wide range of ideas. The diversity of ideas they pursued resulted in an engine that could handle a broad range of use cases. Commercializing the engine became a focus, as was coming up with a hit game that would show the engine off to its best advantage; for indie developers, having to reconstruct an engine with every new game idea was a pain point that, if solved, would enable more creative output.u00a0

n

Supported by their savings, a u20ac25,000 investment from Anteu2019s father, and Helgasonu2019s part-time job at a cafu00e9, they pressed on for three years, incorporating in the second year (2004) with the name Over The Edge Entertainment.

n

The game they ultimately committed to launching in spring 2005, GooBall, was u201cway too hard to play,u201d says Ante and didnu2019t gain much traction. Recognizing that they were better at building development tools and prototypes than commercially-viable games, they bet their company on the goal of releasing a game engine for the small Mac-based developer community. Linking the connotations of collaboration and cross-compatibility, they named the engine Unity.

Over the past few years, gig economy companies and the treatment of their labor force has become a hot button issue for public and private sector debate.

n

At our recent annual Disrupt event in San Francisco, we dug into how founders, companies and the broader community can play a positive role in the gig economy, with help fromu00a0Derecka Mehrens, an executive director atu00a0Working Partnerships USAu00a0and co-founder ofu00a0Silicon Valley Rising u2014 an advocacy campaign focused on fighting for tech worker rights and creating an inclusive tech economy u2014 andu00a0Amanda de Cadenet, founder ofu00a0Girlgaze, a platform that connects advertisers with a network of 200,000 female-identifying and non-binary creatives.

Derecka Mehrens: The gig economy exists in a larger context, which is one in which neoliberalism is failing, trickle-down economics is proven wrong, and every day working people aren’t surviving and are looking for something more.

n

And so you have a situation in which the system we put together to create employment, to create our communities, to build our housing, to give us jobs is dysfunctional. And within that, folks are going to come up with disruptive solutions to pieces of it with a promise in mind to solve a problem. But without a larger solution, that will end up, in our view, exacerbating existing inequalities.

Welcome to this edition of The Operators, a recurring Extra Crunch column produced by insiders with executive experience at companies like AirBnB, Brex, Dropbox, Facebook, Google, Lyft, Slack, Square, Twitter, and Uber, sharing their stories and insights. Itu2019s made for founders who are navigating domains outside their expertise, covering topics they may be learning for the first time like enterprise sales, product management, and finance/accounting.

  1. When and how should a company seek press coverage?
  2. n

  3. The difference between marketing and communications
  4. n

  5. Building relationships with reporters
  6. n

  7. Being or identifying a great communications leader
  8. n

Early on, most founders and investors focus on getting positive press, but if theyu2019re unfortunate or make mistakes, mitigating bad coverage becomes a common goal. Broadly, communications consists of how and what information to share, both inside and outside of the company, touching domains like management, recruiting, marketing, and business development. Itu2019s also highly optimizable and often, mission critical u2014 the difference between dramatic success and catastrophic failure.

We spoke with three communications experts to learn more:

n

    n

  • Sean Garrett was Twitter’s first VP of Communications. He previously worked for Governor Pete Wilson of California and has founded two separate communications firms, with clients including Slack, Cisco, and Disney. Heu2019s currently a Managing Partner at Pramana Collective.
  • n

  • Faryl Ury is a former reporter with experience at NPR and the Associated Press. Her communications experience also began in government, working for US Senator Jeanne Shaheen before managing comms at Square and Uber. She was then a marketing executive at Dropbox before becoming the Director of Communications at Aurora, a leading autonomous vehicle company, with investors including Sequoia Capital, Amazon, and Hyundai.
  • n

  • Adi Raval started as a journalist at ABC News and the BBC, covering 9/11, the Iraq War, and the White House. He moved into government as a diplomat for the State Department serving in Afghanistan, and later, as a spokesperson and Director of Communications at USAID. After leaving government, Adi was the top communications executive for the Bechtel Corporation, the Head of Comms and PR for TaskRabbit, and now the Head of Communications at Kodiak Robotics. Heu2019s also a term member for the Council on Foreign Relations.

Below is a synthesized summary of our conversation; check out The Operators for the full episode.

n

When and how should a company seek press coverage?

n

Investors love to see public recognition of their portfolio companies, and founders sometimes believe press coverage will solve all their problems, yielding a panacea of inbound customers, employees, and new backers. Whether itu2019s a fundraising announcement or a product launch, more exposure can only help, right? Of course, thatu2019s not always true. Being unprepared for an influx of inbound interest can lead to bad experiences and a negative reputation.

n

What’s more likely than a bad response? No response at all: reporters are constantly pitched by entrepreneurs seeking coverage who don’t have a compelling story to share, which means most of them are primed to say “no.”

n

Faryl told us that when she asks founders why they want to do press, they often answer, “our investors told us to,” or “I talked to other entrepreneurs and they do press.” Being prepared for the response means knowing what you want the response to be, which in turn means knowing what you have to say, and why anyone will listen and respond the right way. Thinking through this exercise involves asking questions, said Sean, specifically, u201cwhat is your positioning? What is your messaging? And for some organizations, that’s the right first step to figure out, at a high level, what are we even trying to accomplish here…?u201d

n

Having a clear purpose in mind before approaching reporters will also help you execute. For some startups, landing a story with trade press may be better than being written up by a generalized tech publication. On the other hand, if youu2019re spending a ton of money on Facebook and Google to advertise directly to consumers, getting coverage in the right publications may be much more efficient and impactful.u00a0

CEO explains how the company ‘fully embraces’ streaming"},"content":{"rendered":"

Does TiVo has a future beyond the DVR?

n

Dave Shull certainly hopes so. The former Weather Channel CEO joined the company as president and CEO back in May, and when I spoke to him last month, he insisted that he’s excited and optimistic about the company’s prospects.

n

In fact, he said the DVR business “is not really TiVo” anymore. And the proliferation of streaming services is exactly what’s creating a big new opportunity for the company, one where it can help consumers navigate the seemingly overwhelming streaming landscape.

n

“Let’s embrace the chaos,” Shull told me. “The more streaming, the better.”

n

In the interview below u2014 which has been edited and condensed for clarity u2014 we discuss why he took on the job, how he plans to split TiVo into two companies and his plans for TiVo+, the company’s ad-supported streaming service (which launched earlier this week.)

n

TechCrunch: It seems like part of the goal with you coming on as CEO is this idea of reinventing the company for the world of streaming.

n

Dave Shull: We fully embrace the streaming wars at TiVo, is what I would say.

n

A little bit of context. I’ve known the company for years, because I’ve been familiar with some of the technology pieces that they had in the IP portfolio. But before I took the job, I talked to CTOs at some of the major operators around the world and said, “TiVo, right? I mean this is a company I’ve heard of, but are they still around?” And the answer consistently was, “Yeah, it’s actually the best technology out there.”

n

So I started talking to the board and eventually I get the job offer. I walk into a Best Buy and I pick up a Roku box and a TiVo box. I install the Roku box. It’s a brilliant installation process, absolutely brilliant. But then what it gives you is a bunch of different tiles for each of the apps. And so you have to figure out, okay, was that show on Netflix or Hulu?

n

The TiVo experience was a little bit u2014 it needed some more work, is the polite way to say it. But once I had it installed, it’s taken my live TV and my on-demand Prime, Netflix, Hulu and some digital content and pulled it all together. That’s pretty cool because it’s allowing me to find the entertainment that I want to watch tonight, right?

n

And so we’re betting on this chaos of applications that are out there with the streaming wars, saying people are having fatigue from subscriptions and they are desperate to find an amazing way to go back to enjoying watching their TV again. They want someone who can bring all this entertainment together u2014 on-demand, live, digital u2014 and make it fun to find, to watch TV again. So that’s our mission. Very simple.

n

I came in three months ago. The first mandate is, we’ve decided to split the company. So about half of the company is an IP portfolio, 5,000 patents. Then we have the TiVo product base u2014 and everyone thinks of TiVo as this DVR that you buy at Best Buy. That’s really not TiVo, that’s a tiny fraction of our customers. We have 22 million households around the world that use TiVo to provide exactly what I just said, which is this amazing ability to find entertainment.

Since it was founded by journalist Jessica Lessin in 2013, The Information has stood out in the tech news landscape for its focus on an ad-free, subscription-driven business model (a focus that seems increasingly prescient)

n

Now, the upcoming launch of an app called Ticker suggests that the company is looking to expand its audience while maintaining that subscription model.

n

The Information describes Ticker as its first consumer app. The assumption is that anyone who’s currently paying the $399 annual fee for an Information subscription needs it for their job u2014 whether they’re an investor, entrepreneur or some other professional in the tech industry.

n

The new app, meanwhile, is designed for anyone who might be interested in keeping up-to-date with the latest tech news, and it’s priced much more affordably, at $29 per year. (Information subscribers will get access as well.)

n

The Information ticker app

n

Apparently the app was inspired by the Briefing section of The Information website, which offers quick summaries (often drawn from reporting by other publications) of major tech news.

n

Ticker, meanwhile, will include a section called Today with summaries of the day’s tech headlines u2014 similar to Briefing, but written for a consumer audience. It will also include a calendar highlighting upcoming IPOs, conferences and other events that readers might want to know about. (Not included: The Information’s full articles and original reporting.)

n

“More and more, we’ve been hearing from readers who don’t have a business reason to follow tech but are finding it more and more central to their lives,” Lessin said in a statement. “We are launching Ticker for them u2014 giving them access to the best summaries of the most significant news, written by our team at The Information.”

n

The company plans to launch Ticker later this fall. In the meantime, you can sign up here.
