Recorded on July 13, 2012 The settlement has been made: Apple paid 60 million USD to get Proview off their back. The IP case of the century (that had nothing to do with intellectual property) is finally over.

Recorded Tuesday, February 21, 2012 If you're a fellow China watcher, then more than likely you've come across Stan Abrams, AKA chinahearsay. As we allude to at the beginning, Stan has been here a long time. I like to (with full knowledge of
Recorded on February 4, 2012 Google gives quite a few definition of brands and I'll give you a few: A type of product manufactured by a particular company under a particular name - a new brand of detergent A brandname - the company will
Okay, this took waaay too long to get up. Actually, I've had it edited for the last week or so, but just couldn't get around to uploading and posting it. So, if you've been wondering where Artman Talks went, well, nowhere. This is the
Episode 2 of the podcast yet to be christened is here. Update: The No Name podcast podcast is now called China Punks. Find our new blog here. We get a better internet connection (kind of) and stay a little bit more on focused when it comes to topics. We
No Name podcast #1 Dec. 16, 2011
Update: The No Name podcast podcast is now called China Punks. Find our new blog here. Charlie and I are starting a new podcast series in which we discuss current events in tech, China, and culture (especially books, video games, and TV series.) For the
For this episode, we are joined by Kaiser Kuo, international communications director of Baidu. Your truly suspects that Kaiser might actually be a spy (I mean, he DID go to UC Berkeley ), but good for us that doesn’t affect him as the go-to-guy for Englis
For this episode of Artman Talks, we’re speaking with Betrand Schmitt, CEO of App Annie. He’s going to tell us what a pain in a** working with Android can be….. among other things. App Annie is yet another great example of an internationally focused company based in China. Helped along …
For this installment, we’re talking with Robbie Hsiung, founder and CEO of Zaizher IM. Professional social networking hasn’t quite caught on here in China. No matter what Ushi or Tianji might say, there just isn’t much of a base (or a site with a brand similar to LinkdedIn) for professional …
This week we talk with Michael Kleist about his business, TradeSparq, a great example of a company created first as a way to solve a problem and THEN to make money. Yours truly had never done any real research pertaining to Alibaba, China’s B2B sourcing site, as its never been …
The second episode this week, bam bam bam, is with Charlie Custer. We’re talking about the TechCrunch Disrupt event that happened last week In case you’ve been living under a rock (no offense to who does, I’ve been known to do so as well), the CNN of tech blogs came …
Two episodes back-to-back, bam bam bam, this week. First we’re speaking with Michael Kan about the Android environment in China. The great thing about Android is its open-source. The worst thing about Android is its open-source. In China, both become magnified to the point of incoherency. Michael and I try …
This week I talk with Kim-Mai Cutler, writer for Inside Network Mobile Apps. We talk about mobile applications in China, the developers, and the platforms behind them. I apologize for my voice quality. Apparently, 10 Mbps in China doesn’t count for very much. But, lucky enough, Kim’s voice comes through …
This week, I speak with the most popular non-Chinese man with a Chinese family name in China, Frank Yu. Frank has been in China for quite awhile working for Microsoft and in the gaming industry. A long time mentor, Frank has started his own company, Kwestr, a “gamification layer” that …
For our eighth episode, I talk with Cyril Ebersweiler, venture partner at SOS Ventures and founder of Chinaccelerator, a (you guessed it) start-up accelerator based in Dalian. We talk about how he got to China and why decided to stay. Turns out, he’s just like the rest of us crazy …
This week, I have the great honor to speak with Stephen Wang, a guy that’s been there since almost the very beginning. Stephen is the co-founder of Design Reactor, Rotten Tomatoes, and currently CTO for AliveNotDead, a community for celebrities and artists, and Alive.cn, a business that connects celebrities with …
This week I speak with Charlie Custer, founder and editor-in-chief at ChinaGeeks.org and writer at Penn-Olson.com We talk about Sina Weibo, a microblogging platform that has swept the country and how it has affected the way people interact but, perhaps more importantly, their relationship with their government. We speculate on …
This week I talk with Kai Lukoff, editor-in-chief at iChinaStock, a site focusing on China tech stocks and co-founder of TechRice, a blog focusing on tech in China Kai and I have talked about the goings on in the tech scene in China before, but haven’t really had a chance …
