Global Internet Race Finally Takes Off in Earnest

News just broke that the $26 billion-plus merger between Sprint (S) and T-Mobile (TMUS) is going forward. Apparently, the federal judge in the case weighed the arguments carefully and decided that consolidation of the two telecommunications companies is good for the free market. (More likely, he already bought one of the new 5G-enabled phones and […]

Hologram – A Cellular Platform for IoT Devices

In a recent appearance on The Joe Rogan Experience, Elon Musk puffed some bubonic chronic (much to the chagrin of those stuffy Tesla shareholders) and waxed poetic about how he has millions of ideas, but spends 80% of his time dealing with engineering and manufacturing. As every successful entrepreneur will tell you, everything comes down to execution. […]

The Global Impact of Cheap Satellites and Launches

This past summer we sent one of our MBAs up to Alaska to search for the origins of Alaskan Thunderfcuk and to see if any innovation might be happening that far up north. We managed to come across a great story about an Alaskan service provider, Microcom, that’s working with a satellite firm called Astranis, to provide the State’s population with affordable broadband […]

LiFi: Can Visible Light Communication Save the Internet?

One obstacle to many emerging technologies is that often there is not enough infrastructure to support its full-scale roll-out. One example is building a robust charging network that ensures electric vehicles don’t run out of juice on a cross-country roadtrip. In the computing world, we’ve talked about how Moore’s Law – the theorem that computing […]

This Little-Known 5G Stock is About to Blow

We’ve learned the hard way that researching and writing about exciting technologies doesn’t mesh well with being a prudent investor. Rare is the person who can identify the next Microsoft, get in at the right price and with a meaningful amount of capital at stake, and then sell at the right time. The reality is that […]

Affordable Broadband Internet for Everyone in Alaska

This past week, 18,000 pounds of Copper River Salmon arrived in Seattle on board Alaskan Airlines “Salmon-Thirty-Salmon” flight, much to the delight of chefs and foodies across the Pacific Northwest. It’s just one of many famous exports from Alaska, a state with about the same number of people that Seattle, the city, has, but with a whole lot […]

Wi-Fi Hotspot Marketing Software That Works

The sweet spot for any digital nomad is the ability to work from anywhere on the planet, provided that there’s readily available Wi-Fi access. Since we’re all remote workers here at Nanalyze, we’ve spent a fair amount of time holding up our phones looking for “two bars” of reception so we can start writing. We found an app […]

6 SmallSat Companies Building and Launching Satellites

The year is already off to an exciting start if you’re one of those people whose pulse races a little faster when you hear the “final frontier” intro to any Star Trek episode. SpaceX just completed a successful test of its crewed launch system, “piloted” by a mannequin named Ripley, all but ensuring we’ll be […]

A Cell Phone Coverage App for Digital Nomads

If there’s one thing we love more than researching technologies and smoking cannabis, it’s traveling. Our team has visited and lived in more countries than you can shake a stick at, penning our quality insights from the steppes of Mongolia to the jungles of Papua New Guinea. A fair number of our writers might be considered “digital […]
