In our weekly column Personally Tech we talk to people from all walks of life to learn about the apps and gadgets that they love and can't live without. Technology has changed the way we all live and work, in myriad ways.
This week, we caught up with Praveen Sinha, one of the founders and the Managing Director of Jabong. Sinha is an Android user who says that his office runs on WhatsApp. Read on to know more about the apps and gadgets that he can't do without.
1. Describe your technology setup - what computer/ phone/ tablet/ camera/ gaming console/ other gadgets do you use?
Praveen Sinha: I mainly use a Lenovo Thinkpad and a One Plus One 64 GB variant mobile. I am not really a tablet or a gaming person while the mobile doubles up as a camera.
2. What are three apps (mobile/ tablet or PC/ Mac) you couldn't live without?
Praveen Sinha: The need to be always connected with my team leads to a lot of WhatsApp. Gmail serves all my emailing requirements while the Jabong app is another must, both for shopping and also to be aware of the things our technology team keeps on updating the app with.
3. Which is the one gadget (other than your phone) you never travel without?
Praveen Sinha: I always like to keep some power bank for my phone when I travel. Even though the OPO has great battery life, a bank just takes out the need to look for a power socket anywhere. I'm not particular about which power bank I've got in my bag, as long as there is one.
4. What is your dream gadget/ technology setup?
Praveen Sinha: A much more advanced and intelligent voice recognition technology (than currently exists) that doubles up as a personal assistant at all times.
5. How has technology changed the way in which you work?
Praveen Sinha: Technology has helped me work remotely and efficiently, irrespective of the geography or the office I am in. That's been the big change. It has helped.
