Juan has been obsessed with consumer electronics since before computers had GUI’s. Out of college he worked on a JIT computing contract which supported DOE facilities in New Mexico. He’s been featured on numerous podcasts and radio shows lending his tech insights. You can also find him in LA directing voice over actors and producing spoken word recording.

(Video Interview) Chris Emerson: One Month #ThroughGlass

christopher emerson throughglass glass explorer google demo hands somegadgetguyActor Chris Emerson is a socially conscious, tech forward friend of mine. He shares my more optimistic views of what technology might provide us if we are able to embrace it. For six weeks now he’s been a part of the Glass Explorers program. We spent an afternoon chatting about Google’s newest disruptive tech at a slick coffee bar in Hollywood.

This is a longer video, almost an hour, but Chris discusses in depth what his experiences have been. If you’ve been curious about Glass, this interview should answer a lot of questions.

(Video) Juan’s Thoughts: Why I’m Not a Fan of Bezel-less Phones…

I really don’t understand folks. Why do people want ultra thin, or no bezel phones and tablets? It looks cool. I’ll grant you that. However, it just doesn’t seem like a good idea from a practical standpoint.

Am I missing something? Will having no bezel somehow improve functionality or usability? Please leave me a comment below!
