Ideas and Pitches I Wrote

Android and iPhone forever?

First the mobile space had 4 players: Blackberry, Palm, Windows Mobile, Symbian. The quad-opoly worked OK till something better surfaced: Android & iPhone. Question is: will an upstart emerge & unseat the current leaders? Or will Android and iPhone lead indefinitely? Many PC operating systems existed in the 80s/90s b4 the space shrank to Windows + MacOS on a seemingly permanent basis. Will we see a similar pattern sustained in the mobile space with Android and iPhone? Or are their days numbered?

Waterfalls of Thailand

Thailand is blessed with some of the loveliest waterfalls in SE Asia. I propose to single out some of the most splendid Land of Smiles cascades. For example, I could highlight Elephant Falls in Shillong, which is like five rolled into one. Also amazing gushers in Loei + Pai, all of which I've visited. Pix available.
