making information useful

Today’s paradigm of scattered “free” information is pretty much a disaster for professionals needing a current, curated and concise view. We take the raw information that is out there, extract the good bits, add our own insight and manage the output. The result is our flagship 1.0 subscription

Our current topics include Apple’s semiconductor work and next-generation non-volatile memory. The topics we cover will quickly grow as we grow.
