I see there are faces to be known in the industry. I bet as a reporter you get to know A LOT of people in the electronics, semiconductor and hi-tech businesses of today. And when most of the news and articles are about mergers and new products or new technologies, talking about the people puts back the human factor in the picture. It draws my attention how Mr. Kanwar says that SiRF and GPS location have a place in his heart and how her daughter says she grew up in such SiRF family. That is passion. And I think in order to build a big thing, one needs passion to do it.
Oh, one more thing. If you are an executive, and decided to resign, never just leave it to your corporate PR machine that will inevitably say you are "leaving the company for personal reasons to spend more time" with your family. Everyone in the media that there is more to that story. And if you are proud of yourself of your accomplishment, you should list that in your personal e-mail to all of your friends!
What a nice way to leave a company! I wish him the best in his next endeavors. I often wonder as the "guy in the trenches" perspective, why there are changes in companies that are doing well. It is more obvious that a change is needed for those companies which have been experiencing difficulties. So I wonder, what will the future hold for CSR? Time (and location?) will tell.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
