Episode Synopsis: Sameer Singh, author of Tech-Thoughts.net and senior industry analysis manager of App Annie, joined our host in a two episodes arc discussion on the five major events that shook Asia for the year of 2015 and the predictions for the year of 2016. In the first part, we discuss the five major events in Asia this year: (a) the surge of venture capital financing in Asia and its implications, (b) SoftBank’s Pepper with Alibaba and Foxconn, (c) the Nintendo-DeNA deal, (d) Xiaomi’s challenging year and (e) global recognition of Wechat’s messaging platform and why Facebook is learning from them to build their messaging app. We also added a short discussion on the upcoming dawn of self-driving cars and examine its implications across Asia from the on-demand taxi-hailing apps, the investors such as SoftBank and Tiger Global and the car makers.
