Personally Tech With Truecaller's Kari Krishnamurthy

In a weekly look at the gadgets used by the men and women who are leading the technology industry, we get a glimpse of how these people work, and what they're dreaming about. This week we have Kari Krishnamurthy, Vice President of Growth and Planning for Asia, Middle East and Africa for Truecaller, talking about the devices he can't do without, and how technology defines his life.

Describe your technology setup - what computer/ phone/ tablet/ camera/ gaming console/ other gadgets do you use?
The gadgets that I use in my everyday life are a Mac Book Air which I use for its simplicity and the easy to use operating system. I also carry a Canon EOS 550D whenever I travel. I am not a great photographer but I love to capture moments which I can look back and cherish. However, everyday gadgets list will be incomplete with without one's smartphone. My primary phone is HTC One M8 while I also use an iPhone 5s and Nokia Lumia 1320, for the purpose of app testing.

What are three apps (mobile/ tablet or PC/ Mac) you couldn't live without?
The three apps I can't do without are Evernote, Dropbox and LinkedIn. Evernote acts as a perfect tool for all my official tasks, even helps me in my grocery shopping! Dropbox is a great tool which makes my mailbox lighter and efficient to store contents and all my presentations. It also easily syncs across any of the devices that I carry. LinkedIn holds a special place in my heart for its great community.

What is one gadget (other than your phone) you never travel without?
I never travel without my Bose Acoustic QC20i noise cancelling headphones. It totally cuts off all unnecessary noise and helps you listen to your music in absolute purity.

What is your dream gadget/ technology setup?
A device that might be an extension to the health or fitness bands - if it can tell you when you have to exert more and go slow as well. In today's hyper work models, such a tool can help one to maintain their health and mental alertness. Importantly, if such a tool can help you indicate when your body needs to rest or you have to go to bed. The cases of sleep disorders is a new lifestyle disease after diabetes and we must remember sleep disorders are a very dangerous phenomenon that leads to mental and physical deterioration.

How has technology changed the way in which you work?
Technology inventions which have transformed our way of working are unified communications and mobility. Many a times, key business discussions get lost in translations via emails and texts. Tools such as Microsoft Skype and Apple FaceTime are absolutely great tools to connect with your colleagues and business partners. These two tools enable us to talk to one another and address the finer points without any ambiguity. Technology as a whole is a great ice breaker and makes the world really smaller.
