Mobile Industry Review
I started this blog in January 2006 to track the growth and development of the mobile industry when it was incredibly exciting - this was a year before Apple announced the iPhone. Android was just an idea at the time and Nokia was producing a million handsets a day. At its height, the blog had over 150,000 monthly readers, but nowadays I only write occasionally.
I enjoy profiling the founders of FinTech companies - so I started a site back in 2015 to host those interviews and publish some opinions. I've had to stop publishing occasionally because of my contractual conditions with some banks I've been working with.
