Arlene talked with the Wall Street Journal about progress of her new startup “Wrethink”. The Company is developing a multi-function countertop console that can scan and store documents, make video calls and manage family activities; needs which have been large ignored up until now.
While homes are overrun with technology, Arlene believes there is room for a piece of hardware that can complement existing gadgets while focusing on organizing chores. “We aren’t a place to create information. We are a place to gather it.”
Wrethink is roughly two years away from delivering a product to consumers, but they are ready to seek its first outside funding. Read more about Arlene’s next big idea!
The Swedish Education Broadcasting company interviewed Marty for their TV documentary about the mobile phone revolution.

Marty contributed the foreword to Danielle Newnham’s recently published book entitled “Mad Men of Mobile” http://amzn.to/1feLFWr The book is an inspiring, interesting and entertaining collection of interviews with 13 leading entrepreneurs and innovators in the mobile space, who share their stories, from SIRI to SHAZAM.
In the foreword, Marty shares a lesson learned from the founder of Motorola and one of his mentors, Paul Galvin, — “Reach out! Do not fear failure!” Marty goes on to explain, “A Mad Man of Mobile will not only tolerate danger; he will seek it out — just as a champion skier or race driver pushes the envelope of performance with no regard for personal safety.”
As the inventor of the portable cellular phone, Marty is, perhaps, the original “Mad Man of Mobile.”
Marty chatted with Roman Kikta, Founder and Managing Partner of Mobility Ventures, about the early days of wireless on Mar 2, 2012.
