Last quote by Jason Calacanis

There's this other optionality, the Masa-IPO. In Silicon Valley now, everybody's talking about, Why IPO when you can just Masa-PO?' Masa's going to save all these companies and put the money in and we're good. So I feel great about it.feedback

Aug 21 2017 - Tesla

We need to get back to that sense of camaraderie and resolve these issues for the employees and the stakeholders in Uber. We need the founder involved. Banishing the founder is a mistake.feedback

Aug 09 2017 - Netflix

It will be very easy for them to get tens of millions of people to subscribe. If something like poker becomes extremely popular, they could, with a direct-to consumer offering, have a poker channel, and do it with a level of professionalism that other people simply can't. So I think it's going to open up new opportunities for them.feedback

Jul 19 2017 - Facebook

You can't trust Facebook and Google with your product. You shouldn't.feedback

Jul 19 2017 - Facebook

Google should be looked at – is being looked at – as the enemy of content companies. They've really screwed over their partners consistently over the years.feedback

Jun 28 2017 - Amazon

Amazon pays their taxes. This is a completely fake tweet. It's fake news. Nobody believes what Trump is saying anymore. He tweets at 5:00 a.m., nobody vets the tweets. It's a complete embarrassment for our country that the president is tweeting factually incorrect stuff. Donald Trump can't hold a candle to what Jeff Bezos has added to society. He's created millions of jobs and is a tremendous innovator. Bezos is going to give his money away – he's done an amazing thing for America.feedback

May 24 2017 - Uber

It's fair that they've had a rough year. It's making the management team more resilient and more focused, and it's creating a massive culture evolution at the company. I am more bullish than I've ever been, and more bullish on the management than I've ever been.feedback

May 24 2017 - Amazon

You are talking about generating tens of millions of dollars per store if you could convert 50 people to Amazon Prime. We all know the LTV [lifetime value] of an Amazon prime member is low thousands of dollars.feedback

May 24 2017 - Amazon

There are a number of people that haven't become a prime member and haven't played with the Kindle. This is Amazon's way to do on-ramp retail and relationship retail. You don't know how to use the iCloud service or photos and you are not sure what Apple TV is, and they educate you. It services the people who are very specifically fans of your product and deepens and strengthens that relationship.feedback

May 10 2017 - Facebook

If you look at Google, they have just an amazing monopoly when it comes to search advertising. And they know exactly how to avoid triggering what would look like a monopoly. So they've always kept an anemic, incompetent competitor alive. So Google had Yahoo. They could have bought it, they could have taken over their advertising revenue. Suspiciously, they didn't.feedback

May 10 2017 - Snapchat

The 'FAAAM' index – Facebook, Amazon, Alphabet, Apple and Microsoft – these companies now have virtual monopolies. In fact, they've figured out how to game the Justice Department and really become monopolies that are immune to government action – at least, in the United States. They're not going to try to compete with the global user base in the same way Facebook is obsessed with having everybody. Snapchat is going to really get themselves into trouble if they get into Yahoo's big problem, which was a constant comparison to .... Google. Snapchat has to establish they are something different.feedback

May 10 2017 - Twitter

Facebook, they've always had, or [CEO Mark] Zuckerberg's referred to it as, the clown car:' the incompetent Twitter, which can't seem to get out of its own way. These are perfect little companies to keep on the side. Don't buy them. Let them be independent. So when the anti-trust people come, you can say, Look, no, there's options here.feedback

May 10 2017 - Facebook

Google's moats are transcendent now: Chrome, Android. It's amazing the monopoly they've built that doesn't look like a monopoly.feedback

Mar 15 2017 - Twitter

I don't know what the board was thinking putting a half-time CEO in, but if your company cannot grow in a time of political upheaval, you have have a reality TV president using it and is going completely rogue on the platform, then you will never grow. The user cap may be propped up by Trump right now and everyone wanting to check in on his insanity at 5 a.m.feedback

Mar 01 2017 - Uber

Travis is going to turn into one of those legendary CEO's that we have seen like Bill Gates, like Larry Ellison -- people are not perfect, they need to improve and I think he's on that journey. I have known Travis for two decades. I don't think the tape represents him as much as the apology does.feedback

Mar 01 2017 - Uber

When you look at this technology companies you can count on one or two hands the number of executives who have built a company form five people to five thousand or 50,000 -- Bill Gates, Larry Ellison, Larry [Page]and Sergey [Brin], [Mark] Zuckerberg -- and if you look at all those individuals, they all have this kind of crises of leadership. People are not perfect and he is on a journey. What we've seen over the past couple of weeks are self-inflicted wounds. If you spend all your time fighting, sometimes you get a fighter mentality.feedback

Jan 18 2017

Those tweets are effective in the short-term, perhaps, in a negotiation. But in the long-term....bullying people and berating people into doing what you want is not as effective as collaborating and inspiring people to solve these big problems.feedback

Jan 18 2017 - Silicon Valley

We have a really interesting joke that's going around Silicon Valley – Trump is going to either last zero terms or seven.feedback

Jan 04 2017

I would say we're starting to see exactly how disastrous the Trump presidency can be. Tweeting first and then getting the intelligence second is the worst possible strategy you could have when dealing with cyberattacks.feedback

Jan 04 2017 - Twitter

Forming opinions and then spewing them on Twitter at 6 a.m. or 7 a.m. without thinking about them or having collected the information is idiotic. Let's not sit here and try to normalize what Trump is doing. This is insane behavior.feedback

Feb 25 2016

It's super eerie. In 10 years, the idea is going to be 'would you let this [robot] put your kids to bed? Would you let it change your kid's diaper?'. That's how fast this is going to advance. It's picking up packages right now. These things are going to be walking down the street 10 to 15 years from now, delivering pizzas; they're going to be in your office moving packages around.feedback
