When launching a business, people have bold aims but generally go public with something attainable. Perhaps “We want to be profitable within a year”, or “…If we can just help one person to improve their life.” Clyde Rathbone is not backward in coming forward with the goal for his new website, Karma. He wants to change the world.
Clyde Rathbone’s Karma is controversial – everyone has an opinion on how it might work, what the problems will be and if it will be positive for the world. Techly put firm questions to Clyde and the Karma team, who came back to us with very detailed and considered answers.
Turn over your iPhone. Take a look down the bottom, underneath where it says ‘iPhone’. You’ll see a few strange symbols, codes and numbers. What could the symbols be? Emojis? Secret code denoting where Steve Jobs buried his billions? Something to do with the Illuminati?

Frequent flyer? First time on a plane? If you are sitting in the window seat, you probably had one nagging question: what’s the deal with that little hole in the window?
It’s not often you get hands-on to review a $9999 TV. It’s also not often you get to be in the 41st floor of the Hilton in Sydney while doing it.

I don’t care how bourgeois this makes me – the nouveau riche cities of the Middle East are just the worst. I’m well aware of their abominable human rights records, and that totally sucks, but I’m more upset by the constant gaudy displays of their extravagant wealth. It’s just so tasteless.
