Steve Jurvetson appears to be starting his own venture capital firm

Jurvetson is listed as the founder of a soon-to-launch fund called Future Ventures, according to the firm’s website.

Steve Jurvetson, the prominent venture capitalist who left DFJ in a messy split late last year, appears to be starting his own firm, Recode has learned.

Jurvetson is listed as the founder of a soon-to-launch fund called Future Ventures, according to the firm’s website.

“At Future Ventures, we support passionate founders who are forging the future. For the past 23 years, we have backed the visionaries who push the boundaries of possibility and explore the frontier of the unknown,” the website says. “We focus on disruptive technology such as commercial space exploration, deep learning, quantum computing, robotics, AI, blockchain, and sustainable transportation, synthetic biology and clean meat.”

The website refers to the firm’s “founders” as a plural, implying that other investors may be joining Jurvetson at the outpost. The firm has yet to file any paperwork with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

A Jurvetson spokesperson did not immediately respond to requests for comment late Thursday. The website is registered in the name of Jurvetson’s former executive assistant and was updated in late March.

Jurvetson’s apparent reemergence onto the venture capital scene is not surprising — he is responsible for two of DFJ’s massive successes, SpaceX and Tesla — and that means he is likely to find a friendly base of investors, perhaps among several prior DFJ limited partners. His departure came amid internal tension at DFJ after the firm caught him lying about what it considered serious allegations, a source familiar with the situation said at the time.

“I am excited to move on and get back to my professional passion, helping great entrepreneurs forge the future,” Jurvetson said in a Facebook post in November shortly after leaving DFJ.

But it is still a quick rebound. Mike Cagney, the former CEO of SoFi, is also back with a new startup, as Recode first reported, after his company battled allegations of sexual harassment. Travis Kalanick, too, has restarted his life after being forced to leave his job.

Jurvetson, for his part, was accused by women of having several extra-marital affairs that, in the eyes of some, crossed into the professional world. No one has publicly emerged to allege him of sexual harassment. He has denied any misconduct.

Since his departure in November, Jurvetson has kept a low profile, though he has been making several speaking appearances on familiar topics, according to his social media pages.

In the US, AT&T was the first major carrier to roll out Oreo to its Note8 users, and Verizon and Sprint did the same a few days later. On Sunday, April 1, it will be T-Mobile’s turn. And no, this is not a cruel April Fools’ Day joke.

Desmond Smith, T-Mobile’s recognizable senior social technology evangelist, tweeted last night that the Oreo update for its Note8 phones has been approved and will begin hitting those devices as soon as the evening of Sunday, April 1st. This confirmation comes a few days after Des tweeted that the carrier would be rolling Oreo out to Note8 users in the next few days “barring any unforeseen issues.”

PSA: Apple Accepting WWDC Scholarship Applications Starting Today

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Every year, Apple offers free WWDC scholarships to students and STEM organization members who don’t have the $1,599 necessary to purchase a ticket to the company’s developer conference.

Apple began accepting WWDC scholarship applications for 2018 today, as was first announced on March 13 when Apple shared WWDC 2018 event dates. Apple plans to award up to 350 scholarships, which will include a free WWDC ticket, free lodging, and a free one year Apple Developer membership.


Scholarship applicants, who must be at least 13 years old, can use Apple’s WWDC scholarship website to submit an application. Apple is asking scholarship applicants to create an interactive scene in Swift playground that’s able to be experienced within three minutes.

Apple recommends that applicants “be creative” and use templates in Swift Playgrounds for inspiration. Apple will judge requirements based on technical accomplishment, creativity of ideas, and content of written responses on the accompanying application.

All submissions must be individually created, as Apple will not consider group work. Open source software is permitted, but its use must be explained on the submission form. Swift playground must be built using Swift Playgrounds on iPad or Xcode on macOS. A full list of rules are available on Apple’s WWDC18 Scholarship website.

Each applicant must be registered for free with Apple as an Apple developer or a member of the paid Apple Developer Program. Applicants will need to be enrolled part-time or full-time in an accredited course of study or be a member of a STEM organization.

Apple will be accepting scholarship applications through Sunday, April 1 at 5:00 a.m. Pacific Time, and winners will be notified on Friday, April 20.

This year’s Worldwide Developers Conference will kick off on Monday, June 4 and it will last through Friday, June 8. Apple is expected to hold a keynote on June 4 where new software and perhaps new hardware products will be unveiled. Scholarship students who aren’t picked to attend will be able to follow along with the conference using the WWDC app.

Google is starting to block GApps on ‘uncertified’ devices, but you can register an exemption for ROMs

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Google has always controlled which devices ship with its proprietary GApps—a package that includes such necessities as the Play Store and Google Play Services. Until now, they’ve even been pretty lenient about allowing custom ROM users to flash the necessary payload on top of their modified OS. Unfortunately, some OEMs used that loophole to their advantage, ignoring Google’s CTS certification process while shipping devices with GApps or shamelessly encouraging users to sideload them.

512GB phones are coming, starting with Huawei

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

If you’ve wanted PC-like storage in your pocket, a new Huawei phone with a rumored 512GB of space could make that happen. That’s an insane amount of storage, up from the usual 256GB that phones like the iPhone X can offer. That amount of storage is bigger than most models of the MacBook Pro, and it would allow you to download the Facebook app (400MB) more than 1,200 times (although, maybe you’d rather not).

The upcoming Huawei phone appeared on the Chinese regulatory agency TENAA’s website last month. An update to the listing, caught by PhoneRadar, showed that the phone would have 6GB of RAM and a whopping 512GB of storage. It’s probably not the forthcoming P20, given what we know from the many leaks, although it could possibly be the…
