delivering a dynamic, deciphered stream of technology information … to make it 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 publication.

Our current topics include Apple’s semiconductor work and portions of the digital memory space. The topics we cover will quickly grow as we grow.



Whether it is “ball parking” a technology, seeing who or what else is in the eco-system, or looking in depth at what differentiates a technology, ned goes beyond the corporate pitch.


If you are drafting or licensing a patent your client can be better served when you have a better grasp of technology, allowing you to look forward, seeing how technology is evolving.


An understanding of your client’s business is at the heart of management consulting. If it is a technology based company you have to get a grip on the technology. ned can help you get that grip.

11Oct18 – Apple expanded its semiconductor design group today, picking up 300 designers from Dialog.

31Aug18 – Apple set September 12th as the date of its iPhone Keynote.  We are looking forward to seeing the A12 and any new “Apple” blocks.

23Aug18 – The Financial Times ran a story on IBM patent 10,040,551 a.k.a Drone Delivery of Coffee Based on a Cognitive State of an Individual …. hmmm.  I guess the click-bait worked.

22Aug18 – Look for our upcoming thoughts on the role of Apple’s semiconductor work on the road to becoming a trillion dollar company.

25Jul18 – It is hard not to be cynical about some fo the technology that is publicized and promoted.  It often appears the media and VC’s pick the stories that will provide good click-bait.  More fundamental developments with less sex-appeal are all but ignored.

18Jul18 – We continue to think about the T2 and its implications for or insights into Apple’s product strategy.

16Jul18 – Apple’s T1 was introduced in the 2016 MBP ostensibly to run the new TouchBar.  It’s successor the T2 was introduced a year later in the iMac Pro that does not have TouchBar. It’s work load seemed to expand with quite a bit of back-end housekeeping.  Last week, the T2 landed in 2018 MBP and “other” functionality eclipsed running TouchBar.  In fact, there was no mention of the TouchBar in its description.

13Jul18 – Apple’s new MacBook Pros with TouchBar now include the Apple T2 chip, which was introduced in last fall’s iMac Pro.  It is interesting to think about the iOS-like features and control Apple chose to design itself.

10Jul18 – We not have to resort to space-based gee whiz when thinking about technology, and trying to solve problems.  Yes there is room for big ideas, but society misses the singles and doubles that can lead to a great deal of technology development.

09Jul18 – … still thinking about sustainable liquid fuels.  Is it not an oxymoron.  In this case, a fuel derived from direct air capture of carbon dioxide.  US 9,095,813.

20Jun18 – We are looking into the IP position of Carbon Engineering Ltd. and their carbon capture technology.  The Globe and Mail wrote about them in early June.  It is time to take a closer look.
