While Donald Trump was busy trying to woo the Indian Community in his usual yet shocking manner, TechCrunch carried an interesting comparison between the Donald and Peter Thiel - a surprising and pretty vocal supporter of the Trump campaign. Thiel's support for Trump has resulted in some backlash against YC for standing by him. Tweetstorms, like this one, by veteran Silicon Valley folks are not doing them any good. It's not just YC, Thiel is on the boards of a number of companies. How does one solve a problem like this?!
Meanwhile, Truecaller opened up its TrueSDK for third party authentication. That's a direct competition to the likes of Facebook & Google and has resulted (claimed) in a 25% increase in conversions post integration. BIG!
