macbook-pro-review-5

I used to be a Windows-only guy. If you asked me a few months back if I would ever get a MacBook over any Windows laptop, I would’ve glared at you…intensely. Never in my lifetime would I imagine using a MacBook as my daily driver.

Ride sharing service Uber has once again been dragged into the limelight, although the timing of the news is rather suspicious. We recently had a chance to sit down with Leon Foong, General Manager and Head of Operations for Uber Malaysia, before the latest round of protests and pronouncements against the legality of Uber in Malaysia to hear about its latest plans for the country. Plans that included a new programme to attract more drivers that kicked off at exactly the same time as the latest round of protests from taxi drivers. Hmm.

“What in the world are we doing here?”

That was a prevailing thought in the early stages of the Future With Ford, which we attended over the course of this week. But as the keynotes and experiential tours passed, we noticed that the group of global journalists invited were not merely from automotive publications: there were people from economic dailies, radio talk shows, other tech media, and even analysts in global trends. One of the keynote speakers was Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit.
