I Am Finley


Medium Pivots


I’ll start with the hard part: As of today, we are reducing our team by about one third — eliminating 50 jobs, mostly in sales, support, and other business functions. We are also changing our business model to more directly drive the mission we set out on originally.


I prefer to control my content for many reasons. Medium has seen some great content published on their platform, but apparently, they have also seen issues monetizing it in a way they find suitable. So time to pivot. Hopefully, they survive.


June Oven


The Internet of Things is heating up today with the introduction of the June Intelligent Oven.

June instantly recognizes commonly cooked foods as you put them inside. It can also give you cooking tips for your favorite dishes and automatically adjust cooking times.

It’s got a camera and sensors inside to monitor your food’s core temperature, a beautiful touch interface, iPhone and iPad app for monitoring your food remotely and so many smart features. If I had $1500 dollars, I’d buy one. Sucks to be broke in an age with so much cool stuff to buy.
