Andreessen Horowitz’s Benedict Evans opened this year’s Code/Mobile conference at The Ritz-Carlton in Half Moon Bay, Calif., with the declaration that “mobile is eating tech.” Based on what we heard from the first day of speakers, he doesn’t sound too far off.
Nissan’s Maarten Sierhuis and Qualcomm’s Chris Borroni-Bird talked about cars and autonomous driving from the perspective of automakers. Android creator Andy Rubin described what he thinks the next wave of computing looks like (“some form of AI”) and AOL CEO Tim Armstrong made the case for why Verizon and AOL are a natural fit. AT&T’s Glenn Lurie poured cold water on the FCC’s revenue estimates for next year’s spectrum auction, and Hosain Rahman argued that wearables haven’t had their “iPhone moment” yet (sorry, Apple Watch).
