    His influence on innovation and creativity includes:
    - Sharing his expertise in innovation and creativity, free of charge (in an approach he refers to as “paying it forward”) through his award winning podcast Killer Innovations™ (available on iTunes). It has been named by CIO Insight as a “must listen” podcast.
    - Vanity Fair named him the “The Innovation Guru”
    MSNBC and FOX Business both call him “The Gadget Guy”
    His uncanny ability to predict what’s coming next caused him to be dubbed as the “chief seer” by The San Jose Mercury News.
    - He was named as one of the “25 Most Influential People in Mobile Tech” by LAPTOP Magazine.
    - He is a contributing columnist for Forbes where he writes the column “The Objective” for Forbes.com
