Don't let the smile and tranquil environs mislead you...

Kiani’s one of ASUS’ diligent legal team members, specialising in compliance. That means he’s involved in overseeing the company’s strict adherence to industry standards, protocols and agreements, which for you translates into products with some of the most airtight compatibility available. Sure, the engineers and designers may claim all the glory, but it’s definitely a group effort. Please don’t tell the engineers and designers I said that.

Let’s see what he has to say for himself…

What’s your role in ASUS?

I work at the legal department, specialising in compliance and assurance.

How long have you been working with ASUS?

I’ve been here just over two and a half years now.

What’s your favorite ASUS product?

The Eee Pad Transformer. It may not be as thin as some of the other products on the market, but I think it is the most versatile. The keyboard allows it to be useful for editing and creating documents on the go, and with the keyboard also having a battery included it means that it’s perfect for long-haul flights.

If you could design one product all your own, what would it be?

I am a big gamer, so for me it would be dedicated 3D glasses for gaming that work on any screen, so you can fully immerse yourself into gaming environments wherever you are. There have been a few attempts, but so far it’s only been the right combination of hardware plus software that has utilized 3D on specific screens and specific machines.

Predict one major tech trend for the next ten years:

Cloud computing. In particular online streaming services for movies and games. Full back catalogues of movies will be available for people to watch at home on demand 24/7, and I can see this all taking off for gaming if implemented correctly. People will no longer have to buy a powerful PC or console to play the latest games unless they want that extra hardware, they will be able to simply choose the game they want to play remotely and have it on their TV at home instantly.

What is the single most important thing you’ve learned so far working with ASUS?

The ability to communicate in a clear and concise manner. When you are working in a large multinational company with many colleagues around the world for whom English may not be a first language, being able to break down complicated issues so that everyone can understand is invaluable.

And when you’re not working, what do you do for fun?

Meet up with friends, travelling or gaming. A lot of technology involved, for sure.

Thanks a lot to Kiani for taking the time to talk to us and hopefully there won’t be any legal action involved after we publish this!
