It’s not difficult to understand why we stopped liking them. Like all vampires, they suck. But for something as amazing as mobile communication, it’s amazingly disappointing how much we don’t like our mobile providers. After all, connectivity makes us more human. We’ve evolved to a state where we can choose our own way of communication. FaceTime, Twitter, Facebook, Skype: take your pick. The irony now is that the gatekeepers who are fueling this would rather see you go back to Graham Bell’s phone.
But why have irony when you can have karma? That thought stuck with us for a while, and we founded a company in that name: Karma. We believe that all connectivity should be simple and honest. Karma creates simple design, simple technology, and simple sharing. We care about honest service, honest pricing, and honest communication. After all, that’s how all the things you love work. When you click the top button of your Braun travel alarm in the evening, you don’t question if it will go off the next morning. Neither will you question the price of an item on Amazon and if it will actually be delivered. That’s the kind of cause and effect that the telecom industry is now without. We’re bringing it back, all the way from 1876, with a vengeance.
As we are all now taking the next step in mobile communication, called 4G, we won’t be gentle with the telecom giants. After all, Graham Bell wasn’t gentle with paper mail either. This time it won’t be a copper wire doing the job, but software. We’re living in a technological renaissance, and the Da Vinci of this era said it well: software is eating the world. Karma was founded on that principle. We’re creating a mobile provider by not being one, and focussing on useful applications and meaningful interfaces instead.
