What gadgets do you use?

The two gadgets that I use regularly are my smartphone and my Intel-inspired Ultrabook.

Which is the latest gadget you picked up?

The latest gadget I have picked up is my new Motorola Razr-I and I am totally loving it!

What brands do you like and why?

The brand that I love the most and is most loyal to is of course, Intel. Other brands that I like are Tag Heuer, Perry Ellis, Kenneth Cole, Cole Hann, John Varvatos and Tommy Bahamas, because they complement my style.

What is your dream machine?

My dream machine would be the time machine. I would love to travel back and forth in time so that I can take the best learnings from the future and make the perfect present to the current generation!

What do you not like about technology?

The only thing that I do not like is that at some level technology reduces human connect which I believe is essential for any civilization to thrive. Having said that I also believe that technology has the power to sooner or later give us a solution to this as well, therefore, I am not too worried.

Which apps are you addicted to?

I am addicted to Whatsapp, Viber and I just love Temple Run-2.

One funny/ nostalgic anecdote relating to tech (or the lack of it)

One of the funniest/nostalgic moments in my life was when I bought my first touch phone. It took me a while to get used to it and random calls were made automatically when I tried using the phone.

What’s the biggest tech disaster according to you?

I think technology has always enabled and evolved our lives rather than created disasters so we should stay focused on the positives of technology rather than dwell on the negatives.

One instance where technology solved your problem

As the leader of the marketing and market development team for Intel, my priority is to make people take PC’s home. The problem here was that people didn’t understand what a PC could do for them. So by using technology in the PC’s, we were able to educate the people about the benefits of computers thereby solving the problem.
