    Looking for breaking news? You’re most likely to be doing it mobile. That’s in line with a recent study by the Newspaper Association of America (NAA). Conducted by comScore, the study showed that 80 percent of U.S. adult internet users accessed digital news content. When it comes to unique visitors, the digital newspaper audience came in at 164 million this past August—an 18 percent YOY increase. Mobile devices are driving the growth. The percentage of mobile-only digital newspaper readers more than doubled between August 2013 and August 2014, while the portion of unique…
  • Getting nothing done quickly with mobile data

    Mobile Industry Review
    15 Oct 2014 | 2:40 pm
    Sometimes I really do despair with the state of the mobile experience here in the UK. This evening I’ve been in Swindon and then in and out of London. Something must be going on with all the networks. Or maybe I got out of the wrong side of bed and ended up carrying around a special type of ‘no signal’ electrons.  I haven’t been able to get anything done.  When I travel to London I usually take the train. I flip on the MiFi unit (or occasionally tether) and expect a few areas where internet is rather patchy. Once I’m in greater-greater-London (i.e. Woking and onwards), it usually…

    8 Oct 2014 | 2:45 am
    A question to readers: what is the overall penetration of carrier VoIP lines into the installed base of broadband connections, both fixed and mobile?The answer may surprise you. It's currently just 8% overall.It's that low partly because of the huge volumes of 3G devices and connections that now exist, which all use circuit telephony and SMS. It's also because carrier VoIP use is still only creeping up slowly in consumer broadband, to around 30-35%,12 years after the first such service launched. Finally, although LTE is now cracking through the 250m user barrier, only a tiny fraction…

  • Verizon thinks that the prepaid phone market is dead, and that's okay

    Daniel Cooper
    21 Oct 2014 | 7:00 am
    If your response to the question "How much money did Verizon make in the last quarter" was "$3.79 billion in net profit," then congratulations. Big Red can afford to feel quite smug about its performance in the last three months, finding 1.53 million new wireless customers, of which 1.52 million took up monthly contracts. The tiny sliver of prepaid users has led the company to believe that the pay-as-you-go market is beginning to shrink as people move to monthly deals. Verizon is also happy to announce that it flogged 1.1 million LTE-equipped tablets this quarter, only a slight dip on the…

    So, you've taken a look at the new iPhones and iPads and thought to yourself: "Nah, it's time to see if the grass really is greener on the other side." Well, good timing, because Google has published a guide to help you switch from iOS to its newest platform, Android Lollipop. The tech giant has laid it all out for you: its instructions include how to upload photos stored on iPhones and iPads to Google+, transfer music from iTunes to Google Play Music, keep all your contacts and even set up mail and messaging, among others. In short, it's what you need to read if the only thing keeping you…
  • Premium Tinder features will help you find love before hitting a new city

    21 Oct 2014 | 12:05 am
    If you don't count buying a few drinks or other niceties, finding love on Tinder is essentially free, but it looks like that'll change come next month. The app's CEO and cofounder Sean Rad recently teased at Forbes' Under 30 event that new features will be added that users have apparently been clamoring for. What's more, he thinks they'll offer enough value that a specific subset of its user-base will be willing to pay for them. The core experience of swiping left or right on potential matches to like or dislike, respectively, won't see any fees tacked on, but an ability to expand your Tinder…
  • Apple wants all iOS apps to use 64-bit code starting in February

    20 Oct 2014 | 3:25 pm
    Apple may have only introduced 64-bit computing to iPhones and iPads a little over a year ago, but it's already preparing for the day when legacy 32-bit code is gone for good. The Cupertino crew is now telling developers that their iOS apps must include 64-bit support from February 1st onward. While the company won't kick out existing titles, both new apps and updated releases will have to make the switch. Theoretically, this is easy -- developers just have to build apps using the most recent tools and standard settings. Filed under: Cellphones, Tablets, Mobile, Apple Comments Via: 9to5Mac…

     This August, Nokia, the Finnish company that remains after selling its handset business to Microsoft, rolled out new versions of its HERE mapping product to Samsung smartphones, powered by both Android and Tizen. However, at the time, the company wouldn’t provide an ETA as to when other Android devices would gain access to HERE maps. That day, as it turns out, is now. According to a post… Read More

  • Mimosa Networks: Outdoor Multi-User MIMO

    Mimosa Networks, a pioneer in gigabit wireless technology, has announced a new suite of outdoor 802.11ac 4×4 access points and client devices, to create “the world’s highest capacity low-cost outdoor solution and the first with MU-MIMO”. It’s targeting Wireless ISPs and similar enterprises. Currently most 802.11ac access points use Single User MIMO where every transmission is sent to a single destination only. Other users have to wait their turn. Multi-User MIMO lets multiple clients use a single channel. MU-MIMO applies an extended version of space-division multiple…
  • Google Fiber Going Wireless?

    Google has applied to the FCC for permission to begin wireless spectrum tests in the San Francisco area. According to Reuters, the company’s looking into a rarely-used millimeter wave frequency that is capable of transmitting large amounts of data, but only if the receiving equipment is in the line-of-sight. Google reportedly may offer a fast wireless service in markets where it offers Google Fiber Internet and TV service. By beaming Internet services directly into homes, Google would open a new path now dominated by Comcast, Verizon and AT&T. The Google wireless test, beginning…
  • Apple SIM: Sidestepping Carriers?

    17 Oct 2014 | 9:11 am
    AT&T Mobility, Sprint, T-Mobile US and UK operator EE support a new SIM card for Apple’s iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 that lets customers switch between carriers. Although Verizon Wireless will provide wireless service for Apple’s new tablet, it is not listed as a supporter of the new Apple SIM card, notes Fierce Wireless. With Apple’s SIM card, customers will not need to buy a different SIM card to switch service to a different carrier. As GigaOM notes, it’s unclear how the provisioning process will work if customers want to switch between carriers. “The new…

    Today Facebook updated its Messenger app for iOS with a feature that’s sure to bring out the artist in everyone. Now you can draw and type directly on photos from your camera roll before you whisk them off to your friends. The paint brush feature offers varying stroke sizes and colors while the text field centers whatever you write in the middle of the photo. The text can be moved up or down. The drawing controls are pretty rudimentary and have no eraser, but there is an undo button. You slide your finger up and down the screen to select a... This story continues at The Next Web

The Apple SIM that ships in the new iPad Air 2 just made switching carriers and traveling abroad about a hundred times easier. Instead of having to replace a SIM every time you want to connect to a new carrier, the Apple SIM lets you choose carriers in both the US and UK from the Cellular Data setting in the iPad.

  • BlackBerry Passport review: For every benefit, there’s a compromise

    Ben Woods
    14 Oct 2014 | 8:33 am
    This isn’t a straight-forward review. If it was any other phone, I’d set it up, connect my usual accounts and go about my business of using it as much as possible, as with any review. However, and while this isn’t going to be a long moan about a lack of apps, I can’t do that with the Passport. Nor do I work for an organization tied to BlackBerry’s BES services either, so there’s no chance to test out things like BlackBerry Balance or corporate email; for all intents and purposes, I’m a pretty average consumer user in this scenario. That’s... This story continues at The Next…

    Rory Conaway
    19 Oct 2014 | 11:48 pm
    I need to wrap up the Cambium and Ubiquiti comparison so this is the end, at least for a while. Part of the reason is that a third player is now in the game, Mimosa, so things are changing. I know there are other companies out there like Bitlomat, Proxim, and Radwin, but they are a very small part of the WISP market and I doubt that is going to change. They are all also proprietary and I’m not going in that direction with my philosophy although Proxim is working hard on integrating other GPS systems. Not sure about the other vendors. Chapter 49 got just too long to cover the nuances of all…

    When Tom Wheeler was appointed to the head of the FCC, it was just another broken promise by the Obama administration to not put lobbyists into his government. The cellular and cable industry finally got their own boy to head the agency. Considering how much taxpayer money is confiscated from the taxpayer through the telecommunications industry under the guise of taxes, laundered through the FCC, and then reallocated back to the cellular and telephone companies in the forms of grants and subsidies (and paybacks to successful lobbyists), this decision was like appointing a new Capo di tutti…

  • Apple's SIM card - less of a gamechanger than many people think

    Dean Bubley
    20 Oct 2014 | 7:33 am
    Let's get one thing clear straight away: it's not a Soft-SIM that's in the new cellular version of the iPad Air. Apple isn't becoming an MVNO, either. And it's not about to put Apple in the position of supreme gatekeeper for the world's telcos, much less charge them for the privilege.Although the precise details remain available only in outline and inference, it appears that the "Apple SIM" is just that - a physical SIM, in familiar card form. It just comes pre-installed at the factory, but (it seems) can be removed and replaced as normal, for example with a SIM from an operator that isn't…

    The following is a guest contributed post to MMW from Malcolm Stewart, CEO of YouEye. In the early and middle decades of the 20th century, instinct and an understanding of human nature drove marketing and advertising. Consider “Mad Men” – the TV drama about a prestigious 1960s New York ad agency. No real boundaries existed between advertising and marketing, and creativity directed the process. Quantitative data simply did not exist back then in the way it does today, and that left advertisers/marketers with the tool of qualitative research – speaking to the target market directly.
  • Apple Earnings Obliterate Projections

    On Monday afternoon, Apple reported record September earnings for its Q4 of 2014. Largely obliterating analyst projections, Apple was firing on all cylinders last quarter — except when it came to its iPad. Nonetheless, despite selling nearly one million fewer iPads in the same quarter one year ago (12.3 million sold in Q4 of 2014 vs. 13.1 million sold in Q4 of 2013), Apple is optimistic that its recently refreshed iPads will help accelerate its tablet sales in the months ahead. The big star of Apple’s earnings report was, not surprisingly, the iPhone. Apple sold 39.3 million…

    17 Oct 2014 | 7:38 am
    Comedian Louis C.K. has a great bit about how insanely impatient people are with their smartphones. Although he’s probably right, and although we probably should try to focus on being amazed that our mobile devices are even capable of doing the many incredible things they do, it’s still extremely frustrating when a $700 device doesn’t perform at the speed it advertises. Speed Booster – Phone Cleaner is an app that even Louis could probably get behind. A free download in the Google Play Store, Speed Booster claims it can speed up your phone by up to 60 percent by killing unnecessary…

    Mobile Marketer
    21 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    Smartphone adoption in the United States is growing at a pace so brisk that many analysts are being forced to eat their words (and previous projections) calling for a much slower transition from feature phones to smartphones. According to the Mobile Marketing Association, all signs point to domestic smartphone penetration topping 80% within a decade. At present, U.S. smartphone penetration stands at 51.8%. Last month, the MMA released its newest report titled “How Big is the Mobile Marketing Opportunity.” Impressively, the report suggests that global ad spend could reach as much…

    20 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    At no time in history have consumers been more inclined to make a sudden and otherwise unplanned purchase via mobile than they are today. Consequently, it comes as no surprise that effective mobile marketing is being credited with spurring an uptick in mCommerce. When provided with a valuable and relevant offer, enticement, coupon or invitation delivered via SMS, in-app message, or mobile-optimized email, consumers are inclined to act fast. And, once again, there’s never been a larger pool of mobile consumers who do exactly that — act fast to purchase the products and services…

    Mobile Marketer
    16 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    How much should a small business spend on marketing? It’s a time-honored query, but there are no pat answers. So says Rhonda Abrams in a post for (Asbury Park Press). “Throughout my years of working with small-business owners, ‘How much should I spend on marketing?’ is one of the questions I get asked the most. Is 10 percent of my total revenue too little? Is 20 percent too much? Unfortunately, the rules are not hard and fast,” writes Abrams. In lieu of answers, many small businesses try a scattershot approach which is deadly. “Most small-business owners…

    Mobile is not only booming, it’s also growing faster than all other digital advertising formats in the U.S. now that advertisers are allocating more dollars to catch the eyes of a growing class of “mobile-first” users. According to BI Intelligence, there was once a big disparity between the amount of time people actually spent on their smartphones and tablets (significant and growing), and the amount of ad money spent on the medium (still small). Now the research outfit expects that this gap will narrow substantially, as enthusiasm grows for mobile-optimized ad formats (such…

    Samsung makes some of the most popular smartphones available today. The Galaxy family has been (and continues to be) insanely popular.

In reality, when out buying wine to have with our fish n’chips we usually aim for the cheap stuff – mainly because we’re not entirely sure what the difference is.

Something must be going on with all the networks. Or maybe I got out of the wrong side of bed and ended up carrying around a special type of ‘no signal’ electrons.  I haven’t been able to get anything done.  When I travel to London I usually take the train. I flip on the MiFi unit (or occasionally tether) and expect a few areas where internet is rather patchy. Once I’m in greater-greater-London (i.e. Woking and onwards), it usually…

While it’s famously hard to learn from other people’s experiences, it saves an awful lot of teeth gnashing if you can. It’s also just as difficult to figure out if any of these apply to you, which is why you should have a generous smattering of independent mentors or advisors to point out the truth (see Mistake 18). 1. Not understanding the profound implications of exponential growth and what it…

The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 8 (and 10-inch) has a stand too and at under 1 pound / 426 grams it’s the lightest self-standing PC in the world. That makes it interesting for me, especially as it’s got a 1920×1200 screen, a big battery, an LTE option and a starting price of just $299 (dual-band WiFi version.) According to a retailer in Germany that has it up for pre-order there’s a digital compass and GPS. This is too good. I hope not though because…

    Faisal Bin
    24 Sep 2014 | 10:38 am
    Since Twitter for Windows Phone is so lackluster in terms of features and performance, we mostly rely on third party apps for our Twitter needs. This may not be true for everyone but for power users, Twitter’s official app is a no go. It lacks many features that are present on its IOS and Android counterparts. It’s quite slow, the UI is not optimized for big screen(or any screen), notifications often come in late. Not to mention how seldom it gets updated. In this post I’ll be talking about some third party Twitter apps that provide better Twitter experience on Windows…

  • Third-party apps: Can we trust them after Snapchat data leak?

    Meghan Kelly
    14 Oct 2014 | 11:48 am
    Snapchat is waving its arms in the wake of two data breaches this week saying, “We didn’t get hacked, a third party did!” Now people are questioning whether we should dump third-party applications as a rule of security thumb. Our gut reaction? Absolutely not. What’s going on here? Last week, Snapchat users had hundreds of thousands of photos leaked onto the forum 4chan. Snapchat says third-party apps are to blame. In Snapchat’s case, it seems “Snapsaved,” an app that lets users save pictures that are otherwise intended to “self-destruct,” was breached. You can check out…
  • Grace Hopper 2014: Dudes in the house

    Four days, three keynotes, hundreds of sessions. Eight thousand women in tech. The Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Technology was off and running and what an event it was! But while it showcased some of the greatest female technical minds, there was also some, well, weirdness. First of all, let me say this: In order to demand equality and inclusion, you need to be equal and inclusive at your very core. You need to take out the common assumptions about who is better or worse or demanding of more attention. You need to welcome all with open arms, in order to ask to be welcomed. Otherwise,…

    In the last month we’ve learned about two vulnerabilities that affect the Android Open Source Project browser. The issue, however, is a widespread one, that touches more than just AOSP’s browser, but also derivative browsers that are based on AOSP’s code, such as Samsung’s browser. The issue is actually fairly widespread in our userbase. Around 45% of Lookout users have a vulnerable version of the AOSP browser installed. It should be noted that these users may have a separate browser, such as the Chrome or Firefox browser, installed. However, unless and until the AOSP browser is…

  • The future of customer experience is ours to choose

    Brian Solis
    20 Oct 2014 | 3:45 am
    The future of CX or customer experience is a bit of a play on words…it’s ours to choose rather than ours to lose. The truth is that many businesses are already losing, they just don’t realize it yet. Executives are making great assumptions about customer behavior that lead to new investments and new technology. But over time, this leads companies away from — rather than closer to — their customers, simply because the customer journey is evolving faster than our experience learning from and successfully shaping it is. My research shows that connected customers who live an active…

    One of the best parts of attending a college football game is when the students break out into a chorus of “Zombie Nation” or The White Stripes’, “Seven Nation Army,” after a big play. These familiar anthems, sung by thousands of enthusiastic undergrads, are part of what makes college football so exciting. But lately, the student section hasn’t been as loud as it used to be.

You receive an email that prompts you to go online to learn more about competitive products while you’re at it.

    SEO: A web phenomenon whose only constant is change. Those three letters refer to the practice of tweaking your site so as to make it more visible and have it rank well for certain keywords. They also refer to a steady cause of anxiety and hair-tearing-out: just as you’ve figured it out, or thought you have, it changes, leaving everything you once knew turned on its head. Then, like a wisp of smoke, your SEO mastery dissipates and you’re left looking at your computer screen and shaking both fists at the internet deities. Do you know what you’re doing?

    The Ultimate Salesman Is there any feeling more dreaded than the rock you feel drop in your stomach when a salesman approaches you? “Maybe if I don’t move, he won’t see me,” you tell yourself hopelessly. Salesman nears; you avoid eye contact. You look for an escape and fidget uncomfortably as you realize there is none. Too late, he’s here: you force a smile and grudgingly engage in conversation. Joe Girard was that dreaded guy. He caused the discomfort and saw people’s desperate deer-in-headlights reaction–for Joe was a used car salesman. Joe, however, wasn’t your average…

A sales stage history gives you the number of potentials (opportunities) in each stage for a particular time period. Stage history analysis reports are now available in the advanced analytics add-on for Zoho CRM. Let us see how this can help you gain useful business insights.

  • Tablets: Quest for the Enterprise

    17 Oct 2014 | 9:00 am
    Yesterday, Apple announced a minor refresh to their iPad portfolio, with improvements mostly focused on Touch ID and a thinner footprint. In many ways, this did feel like this was a "placeholder" upgrade. The new iPads would certainly appeal to loyalists, but they don't seem to target the primary reasons behind the recent slowdown.The slowdown in iPad sales (or high-end tablet sales, in general) was caused by three factors -- 1) Increasing overlap in use cases of large screen smartphones (or phablets) and tablets, 2) Inability to move downmarket, despite lower iPad Mini prices,…
  • Benchmarking the Smartwatch Market

    Sameer Singh
    15 Oct 2014 | 9:00 am
    Despite the hype surrounding them, I have been skeptical about the potential of "wearables" as a mass market product category. Most of my analysis focuses on the primary use cases targeted by these devices, which still remain unclear. However, we haven't seen any data on sales that would give us an adequate understanding of market conditions. Of course, this is partially because these are still early days. That said, I thought it would be interesting to compare the early shipment performance of these devices with what we saw in the smartphone and tablet markets.The chart at the top of this…
  • Xiaomi's Q3: Growth As Usual

    Sameer Singh
    10 Oct 2014 | 8:00 am
    The smartphone market saw an interesting dichotomy this week that reflects a changing basis of competition. Samsung announced a revenue and profit decline, while Xiaomi's Q3 sales grew 20% sequentially (and 300% annually). For Xiaomi, this continues a pattern that I highlighted earlier this year.Lack of cyclicality is usually driven by a couple of factors -- (1) A rapidly growing market, (2) Product and business model superiority relative to the basis of competition prevalent in the market, and (3) Expanding geographical reach. It seems that rapid sequential sales growth with minimal…
  • Rovio vs. King II

    Sameer Singh
    6 Oct 2014 | 6:30 am
    Earlier this year, I compared Rovio's operating metrics with those of King's to highlight the different monetization approaches chosen by each company. In absence of updated MAU figures from Rovio, I had assumed modest growth from 263 million in 2012. As it turns out, Rovio's MAUs actually declined by roughly 63 million in 2013. Likewise, King has faced a few challenges as well. However, both companies seem to be fighting back with very different portfolio approaches.First, let's take compare ARPU figures for both companies. With the decline in MAUs, it seems that Rovio's moves to expand…

    Sameer Singh
    2 Oct 2014 | 6:30 am
    This week, Microsoft unveiled a long-awaited update to its operating system -- officially dubbed, Windows 10. Microsoft says that Windows 10 is an attempt to create a single operating system that works across phones, tablets and PCs, without the compromises that were visible in Windows 8. This is certainly a much needed update that should help them retain their core customer base, but it also doesn't do much to cover up their biggest weaknesses.First, let's point out the obvious. Microsoft's decision to skip a version number is curious. While Microsoft claims it was because Windows 10 was a…

  • Lenovo to buy Blackberry by the end of the week?

    21 Oct 2014 | 7:01 am
    Chinese company Lenovo is rumoured to be continuing its spending spree, following its buyout of Motorola earlier this year for the princely sum of £1.8 billion, and it seems that ailing Canadian smartphone manufacturer BlackBerry could be next on the shopping list. According to rumours from some fairly solid sources, the acquisition could be made as early as this week. That's despite gossip that any attempts to buy the company last year were blocked by the Canadian government over security concerns - not only from internal sources, but from the likes of Microsoft and Apple, too.

    As you know, in each industry there are some companies that are very successful that other companies try to catch up with them. On the other hand, there are numerous organizations that spend lots and lots of money to survive but cannot! The main problem is not that some companies have access to more powerful resources, or that they are wealthier that other companies. If that was the case, none of the newly established companies would survive in the cruel world of business. In fact, most of the today’s idols are yesterday’s startup companies with limited resources. Today’s companies…

    Nick Kolakowski
    17 Oct 2014 | 8:03 am
    When Google unveiled the next version of its Android operating system at its I/O conference this summer, it chose to stay a little cagey about the name, referring to the upgrade simply as “L.” With the software set for release “in coming weeks,” Google has finally revealed the full name: “Lollipop.” That’s not much of a surprise, considering how Google names each successive generation of Android after a different dessert—maybe “Lemon Meringue Pie” or “Licorice” could have substituted, but the list of alternates is relatively short.

  • Is Apple’s Swift Worth Your Development Time?

    Don Reisinger
    6 Oct 2014 | 7:35 am
    At the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June, Apple surprised many developers when it announced Swift, a new programming language for iOS and OS X. For the past several months, more developers have been using Swift side-by-side with Objective-C, Cocoa, and Cocoa Touch to build apps, giving them a chance to see what Apple believes will serve as its future framework for all software produced by third-party developers. The big question on the minds of many in the industry, however, is what makes Swift so special. What will allow it to replace the standard languages already in use for…
  • Why App Developers Need to Understand HIPAA

    Susan Hall
    2 Oct 2014 | 7:18 am
    The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is complicated, and comes with hefty penalties for violations. As developers build more and more apps that leverage users’ personal and health data, they need to understand how this law works. HIPAA protects personal health data during transactions between entities such as insurance companies, hospitals and doctors. It was amended last year to require those covered entities to also vouch for the privacy and security practices of their business associates: companies that also handle their healthcare data, such as billing…

    Activity trackers, “smartwatches,” wearable electronics, and smartphones all come with more than the ability to record your daily steps taken or calories burned; the devices’ ability to record the nuances of daily activity—thanks in large part to a growing collection of third-party apps—has subjected them to quite a bit of privacy-related scrutiny. In a recent study, the Federal Trade Commission found 12 mobile health and fitness apps sending users’ personal information to 76 different third parties.

(The code that accompanies the piece is stored on SourceForge as “First”) Remember that view controllers in Swift manage two roles: they controls views on a page or part of a page, as well as navigation between pages. Creating a multi-page app requires at least one view controller per screen. In our first…

    Animated CSS3 Side Menu Tutorial If you’ve ever worked with the Meteor javascript framework you’ve also probably worked with Atmosphere, its package management database. In this post, you’ll learn how to build an animated responsive side menu using CSS3 and JQuery based off of Atmosphere’s menu animation.

    In this blog post, we’ll help you avoid the pitfalls that marketers face when replacing websites, including budget overruns, delayed launch dates, and missed goals. A successful website redesign begins with a clear and succinct website RFP (request for proposal). An effective RFP ensures that you get multiple accurate bids (enabling you to compare apples to apples), attract and select the right web developer or digital agency for the job, and that, when the site is complete, you achieve your goals.

  • Developing Plugins for SaaS Platforms

    Rick O'Halloran
    30 Sep 2014 | 9:56 am
    Plugins are an important part of almost every CMS.  Traditional single install systems allow users to interact with and change the way core code functions.  Users of SaaS platforms are operating on a shared code base and cannot be allowed to modify any code that will affect other users.  The traditional methods of plugin development are not sufficient for these types of software. We realized this problem early on in the development of and decided to break it down.  Instead of asking, “how can we allow users to modify core platform code?”, we asked “why do developers…

    21 Aug 2014 | 2:35 pm
    One of our primary goals in developing is to make web development much faster and easier, without losing any of the flexibility and control that is needed for enterprise websites. As a product architect, I knew that one of the important problems to solve was to allow developers to safely execute server side code. Traditional CMS platforms avoid this issue by exposing APIs in the language the core platform is written in. Since each instance (website) is run separately, there’s no risk of conflict. We required a different solution. The challenge We also wanted to select a…

    Mobile devices offer the ability to create direct connections with customers and empower a distributed workforce. With this opportunity has come a wave of mobile apps, as well as a competitive pressure to deploy those apps quickly. In the rush to get to market, the teams developing these apps are not planning for life beyond 1.0. However, a minimal amount of effort early in the development lifecycle can make the difference between an app’s 1.0 being the beginning of great things or the end of the line as natural evolution calls for tweaks and changes. As too many enterprises are finding…

    Mobile apps are a great way for enterprises to connect with customers and empower a distributed workforce. But behind the scenes, the mobile app development process can be stressful, driven by industry competition and tight timelines. We’ve seen this quick-to-develop, quick-to-deploy approach lead to many apps that don’t move beyond version 1.0. Of those that do, many encounter quickly mounting expenses and inflexibility when meeting changing business requirements during development. Planning for an app life beyond 1.0 should start early in the process, not after the app has…

    If you are human, failing at text marketing is going to happen. It is very common, in fact, there is a website that is dedicated entirely to cataloging those fails. This type of error is far more dangerous than a fail at the workplace, and it can easily ruin the reputation of your brand in a heartbeat.

As long as the error is something such as an autocorrected error or minor issues, you can quickly recover from the marketing fail – if you know how. In order to recover after a text…

    Unlike desktop software, mobile apps tend to have a single specific function. The best and most popular apps tend to offer only one main feature or benefit and they do it exceptionally well. This provides a challenge when it comes to mobilising businesses workflows that contain multiple different actions and stages. Identifying exactly which apps will support each stage of the workflow as well as enable your employees and colleagues to efficiently perform a variety of tasks on their mobile devices is no easy task. For this reason one of our partners Good Technology, a mobile security company,…

  • The 10 Worst Implementations of QR Codes

    Alex Krasny
    16 Oct 2014 | 7:14 am
    You already know what a QR Code is because you have probably rolled your eyes more than once after seeing one on a restaurant menu or billboard. But if you don’t, originally developed by the Japanese automotive industry, a Quick Response Code (QR Code) is a machine readable code that can store data. Frankly, I would be impressed if the average American has scanned more than one QR Code in their lifetime. Even that scan was probably just for novelty. The running joke around our office is the only people who ever scan a QR Code are those people making sure it works before sending it to…

    When Apple announced the iPhone 6, one feature stood above the rest. In 2011, Google and Microsoft added Near Field Communications capabilities to their flagship devices. In 2014, Apple finally followed the industry, announcing that the iPhone 6 uses NFC for Apple Pay. In 2012, I used the still-young technology along with the Google Nexus 7 tablet and a team of six to win the company’s international hackathon at my old employer, Pearson.

In one minuscule, seemingly insignificant moment in the cosmos, we can lose that which binds together the fabric of our entire beings. This happened to me very recently, to a degree which I hadn’t experienced before. It had been an extremely busy day, and I had already planned to treat myself by having my most guilty pleasure for dinner that night: Pesto Cavatappi with Parmesan Chicken from Noodles…

There is no mystery that Sony has always been open to developers working…

    Marcus’ intro: Earlier this year I read ‘Thick Face Black Heart’ by Chin-Ning Chu on Eastern business philosophies. One of the concepts from the book that’s stuck with me is the idea of leapfrogging. In Western cultures, we subscribe to the idea of ‘climbing the ladder’ or ‘working our way to the top’. In some Eastern cultures, there’s an opposing belief – that you can leapfrog to the top. A few months ago, I met Nathan Chan at an Elance/oDesk launch party in Melbourne.

This isn’t surprising when you consider that wearable tech (including smart glasses, watches, and fitness bands) is still an early adopter market and already estimated to be worth $3 billion. In 2016, estimates suggest that 100 million wearable tech devices will be shipped. That’s ten times the number of devices expected to ship in 2014. So, how does this affect our jobs as marketers?

Whether that means educating them, starting a conversation, or finding a deeply personal way of connecting with a consumer, companies should engage with their prospects instead of shouting at them to buy a product.

At an early stage, Customer Development Interviews first enable you to ensure that you’re actually solving a problem for someone.

Startups typically solve a problem for one persona first – that’s not a typo, a persona is an idealized ‘character’ used to make it easier to imagine the type…
