CTIA CEO on Tomi Ahonen’s “outrageous & factually incorrect statements”

There’s an absolutely fascinating argument burgeoning between Steve Largent, President & CEO of CTIA (the American Wireless Association) and mobile industry analyst/commentator, Tomi Ahonen. Ahonen posted this excellent diatribe laying into the American mobile industry (primarily the operators). Steve wasn’t happy. Not at all. So unhappy was he, that he ended up having to question […]

If you’re going to the States, get approved before you fly

For any non-US-based reader planning a trip to CTIA this Spring (like me), make sure you’ve registered for authorisation before you travel. You can do it online. And it’s not that painful.

CTIA Day 3…

Thank you for your continued patience. Updates are sketchy. Alas, I’ve squeezed meeting after meeting into my days here and whilst that’s super in terms of acquiring good, interesting content, it leaves little time for actually getting stuff up online here.

Holsterwatching at CTIA

I’ve been choc-a-bloc with meetings all throughout CTIA but every now and then, an interview has been finishing early. It doesn’t happen often.

CTIA Day 2

I’ve got some good video footage — about 70 gig’s worth. Luckily I brought along my 1TB drive. My brand of choice? Western Digital. Although I’ve also got an Iomega 1TB back in London. You need that when you’re doing video. Today was action-packed with meeting-after-meeting along with some impromptu connections with folk. My modus-operandi, […]
