    1 Oct 2014 | 7:00 am
    On Tuesday, The Mobile Marketing Association (MMA), kicked off its SM2 Innovation Summit with the release of a new report titled “How Big is the Mobile Marketing Opportunity.” The report in question explores the mobile ad market opportunity for both marketers and mobile ad/media sellers. Impressively, the report indicates that global ad spend could reach as much as $220 billion globally and $70 billion in the U.S. alone (excluding mobile search). “Our analysis indicates that the amount brands should spend on mobile has been grossly underestimated and that the industry is likely…
  • Big data – what it means for mobile operators

    Mobile Industry Review
    Roland B
    30 Sep 2014 | 12:20 am
    There has been a lot of hype about “big data” in recent years, but what does it mean for mobile network operators and how can they benefit from it? Big data is a catch-all term that involves new methods and technologies for collecting, managing, and analysing in real-time the vast increase in data (now typically Petabytes, Exabytes and Zettabytes). It has been a buzzword in the oil and financial sectors for several years, but it’s only more recently that network operators are starting to realise its potential. It is especially relevant to operators, who are looking for new ways to…

    Tweetbot 3 for iOS is frequently regarded as one of the better mobile Twitter apps, no matter the platform -- it's full of shortcuts and visual flair that most clients (including Twitter's own) sorely lack. It has been lagging on support for Apple's latest developments, however, which makes today's version 3.5 update pretty important. The interface now scales properly on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, giving you much more screen real estate when you're browsing tweets. There are also a few noteworthy upgrades that apply to everyone, including interactive notifications, sharing sheets and support…

  • Apple's new iCloud tool can show if a used iPhone is stolen

    Steve Dent
    2 Oct 2014 | 12:02 am
    The market for used iPhones is fraught with risk, because you may end up paying hundreds of dollars for a locked off device, or worse -- one that appears legit but can't make calls. However, Apple has just revealed an iCloud tool that lets you check a device's activation lock status. All you'll need is the iPhone's IMEI or serial number, and if you're the rightful owner, you'll get info on how to disable any activation locks before selling. Meanwhile, buyers will be shown how to remove the previous account (with the seller's permission). The tool will be particularly useful at sussing out…
  • Vertu Aster is a luxury smartphone with 'mid-tier' price, top-tier specs

    Richard Lai
    1 Oct 2014 | 9:53 pm
    Since the launch of the Signature Touch, Vertu CEO Max Pogliani promised that "technology will be more a merging factor and not a differentiation point" for his phones. That's literally the case with the new mid-tier Aster launched today: This titanium Android device is every bit identical to its flagship sibling device internally, just wrapped within a more contemporary and unisex design. We're looking at a 4.7-inch 1080p display, a 5.1-inch 117 carat sapphire screen, a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 chipset, a 13-megapixel Hasselblad-certified main camera with twin LED flash, a…

    Curious as to just which Honda models you'd see Android pop up in first? If you had money on the 2015 Civic, Civic Tourer and CRV it's time to collect your prize from the pool. Google's mobile OS will appear as standard equipment in those vehicles with a little help from Nvidia, naturally, and as the GPU giant tells it, Honda Connect will be the first infotainment system to run embedded Android on a Tegra chipset. Nvidia says that Connect will sport a 7-inch customizable touch-screen display that acts a lot like what you'd expect from a smartphone or a slate. Naturally that means there are…

We’ve already seen iOS apps like Moment and Check appear to shame you into self-restraint by alerting you to how many minutes you spend staring at your little screen every day, or how many times per day you pull out your phone and take a look.

    30 Sep 2014 | 11:27 am
    LTE Direct, a new feature being added to the LTE protocol, will make it possible to bypass cell towers, notes Technology Review. Phones using LTE Direct (Qualcomm whitepaper), will be able to “talk” directly to other mobile devices as well as connect to beacons located in shops and other businesses. The wireless technology standard is baked into the latest LTE spec, which is slated for approval this year. It could appear in phones as soon as late 2015. Devices capable of LTE Direct can interconnect up to 500 meters — far more than either Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. But issues like…

In prepared remarks for an education technology event in Washington on Monday, Wheeler said that “75 percent of rural public schools today are unable to achieve the high-speed connectivity goals we have set.” He pointed to lack of access to fiber networks and the cost of paying for it when it’s available. Wheeler says the FCC has set a clear target of $1…

Trials of the $100m project will begin by November, reports The Guardian, and will allow Telstra customers who agree to share their bandwidth to get free access to any hotspot. The data they use will be deducted from their home allowance. Non-Telstra customers, and those who don’t share their home connection, will be able to connect for an as yet undisclosed fee. Many of…

  • Budget carrier FreedomPop gets into branded hardware with sub-$100 smartphones and tablets

    1 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    FreedomPop, a wireless operator that’s trying to shake up the industry with free plans, has announced its own line of handsets at tablets, all priced below $100. In the past, FreedomPop has sold refurbished handsets from third-party manufacturers in order to keep prices down, but customer demand outstripped the supply of available second-hand devices. As such, the company decided to build its own. The first such device is the FreedomPop Liberty, an $89 Wi-Fi tablet. Since FreedomPop is VoIP-based with Sprint’s network as a backup, the Liberty is technically a phablet, but, at 7 inches,…

Just a couple of days ago, company CEO John Chen confirmed to the Wall Street Journal that it was due to arrive imminently and would cost $599, making it cheaper than some of its rival flagship handsets in the US. Aside from its unusual square appearance created by a 4.5-inch (1440 x 1440 resolution) display, key hardware specs include a condensed version of BlackBerry’s signature Qwerty keyboard, a 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB RAM and 32GB…

    10 Sep 2014 | 9:39 am
    I am impressed by the number of free Wi-Fi hotspots in Trieste, Italy. One of the best is Tiscali’s free Wi-Fi hotzone right on the Canal Grande, by Cafe Rossini and Antico Panada. The Canal Grande ends at the Church of Sant’ Antonio Nuovo. There is no annoying login or terms and conditions screen. When you see the Tiscali free Wi-Fi SSID, just click on it and you’re online. Here’s a screenshot of the Speedtest I did on my iPad. The upload speed is poor but the download speed is fine for checking email, looking up addresses on Google maps, etc. I found many other fast,…

  • Tales from the Towers Chapter 51: Once a Lobbyist, Always a Lobbyist – the Tom Wheeler Story

    Rory Conaway
    24 Jul 2014 | 3:58 pm
    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…

    21 Jul 2014 | 10:56 am
    A large Wi-Fi network has been deployed in Lekki, Nigeria by Tizeti Network, a wireless ISP whose goal is to create a “carrier Wi-Fi” network in Nigeria. The Lekki Wi-Fi network covers 5000 homes and an area of 9 square kilometres of Lekki Phase 1, an expensive gated community on Lekki Lagoon, east of Lagos. Tizeti uses the latest Ubiquiti NanoBeam base stations and UniFi video cameras; they use the fiber network of MainOne, a large telecoms company that serves West Africa. Each Lekki 1 subscriber gets two SSIDs, one for his own use and the other for mobile or roaming customers.

    Only five days after Gotham City Research published a report accusing Gowex of misleading investors, Gowex’s management has filed for bankruptcy protection in Spain. The company’s CEO, Jenaro Garcia, resigned and admitted that he had been publishing false financial accounts for at least four years. For those of you who are not familiar with Gowex, it is a Spanish company that claimed to make a lot of money by offering free Wi-Fi service via Gowex hotspots, by partnering with telecom operators and municipalities (setting up free Wi-Fi hotspots for the latter), and by showing ads to…

    WebRTC moves fast. As part of writing my 2014 Edition research report, I'm trying to keep on top of all the various new market entrants, especially the proliferating range of platform and API providers. So I was unsurprised when a search threw up a new (and UK-based) WebRTC company called Streamserver. I clicked the link, thought "Oh, another one" and fired off an email to the CEO asking for a briefing, and inquiring how he was positioning and differentiating his company in an increasingly crowded space.Then I noticed something familiar - a reference to Double, the company making the cute…

Video accounts for a far higher proportion of focus than could reasonably be expected. Indeed, when everyone…

  • Google Tightens Gordian Knot: Company Will Fund Content for Top YouTube Creators

    J. Barton
    1 Oct 2014 | 6:45 am
    It’s hard to wrestle with Google. Now the company is tightening the “Gordian Knot” with its YouTube franchise to keep hot content creators from jumping ship to competitors like Facebook. In this case, the Gordian Knot (a legend associated with Alexander the Great used as a metaphor for an intractable problem) is Google’s decision to make serious investments to boost the profiles of top talents. Google has owned YouTube since late 2006. “The site expanded support to full-scale marketing and advertising campaigns, helping turn successful creators with large fan…

Apple, Intel, Qualcomm, MediaTek and Samsung captured the top-five tablet AP revenue share spots in Q2 2014. Although Apple maintained its tablet AP revenue share lead with 26 percent revenue share, Intel proved impressive with 19 percent revenue share. “The non-Apple tablet AP market leadership position continues to change hands and during Q2 2014 it was Intel’s turn,” says Sravan Kundojjala, a…

    Michael Essany
    1 Oct 2014 | 6:15 am
    Late Tuesday, the CDC confirmed that a patient now being treated at a Dallas hospital is, tragically, the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the United States. The global Ebola crisis, beginning in Africa and now spreading around the world, has led to an overwhelming amount of media coverage, and social media interaction with an unfortunate amount of it being false. With the accelerated rate at which information can spread across the Internet, it is too challenging to manage and monitor false information, which is more speculative than factual and often derived from irresponsible reporting.

  • Apple iPhone 6 Not Easily Bent, Claims Consumer Reports

    Ed Hardy

    A handful of reports accusing the newly-released Apple iPhone 6 of being easily bent quickly blew up onto a controversy that’s being called “Bendgate.” To add some scientific data to the debate, Consumer Reports compared the rigidity of this new smartphone to other flagships and found little evidence to back up the claims. The product-testing service examined the rigidity of the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, LG G3, Samsung Galaxy Note 3, and HTC One (M8), as well as the iPhone 5. It used a “three-point flexural test,” in which the device is supported at two points on either end and an…

    25 Sep 2014 | 8:29 am
    With so many cloud storage options at various prices, it’s tough to determine which would work best for you and your wallet. Just about all the major cloud vendors offer free storage, including Apple (iCloud), DropBox, Google (Drive), and Microsoft (OneDrive). But what about those with sizable storage needs in excess of 1 terabyte? How about those with medium needs, maybe a few hundred gigs? Our sister site TabletPCReview brings you a quick cloud storage pricing guide to help with the decision, including pricing from the major vendors. And for those that have various cloud storage…

    iPhone 6 Plus vs Note 4 vs Nexus 6 Photo Shows Matchup is a post by Adam Mills from Gotta Be Mobile. A new photo shows what the Nexus 6 could look like next to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and iPhone 6 Plus if and when it arrives on shelves alongside Android L later this year. Nexus 6 rumors have been lobbing potential hardware features, release dates and software features at consumers. And as we moved deeper into the fall, Nexus 6 rumors have begun to firm up. Some of the firmest Nexus 6 rumors pertain to its display size and at this point, a dramatic change in size is all but confirmed to be…

According to the report, the size and growth potential of mobile ad spend indicates popular market projections have been “underestimated.” “Our analysis indicates that the amount brands should spend on mobile has been grossly underestimated and that the industry is likely to be larger than currently predicted,” explains Greg Stuart, CEO at the MMA.

    Where is local media in the U.S. going to make its money?  With the marketplace in flux and print revenues declining, more and more will be digital. That’s the conclusion of a recently released BIA/Kelsey report.  “U.S. Local Media Forecast 2015″ indicates online/digital will account for more than one-quarter of total local media revenues in 2015.

    29 Sep 2014 | 6:00 am
    Is Google losing ground? That appears to be the logical conclusion in response to freshly published mobile search data. When it comes to mobile search , Google’s market share has dropped to 83.26 percent. Not surprisingly, both Bing and Yahoo continue to make incremental gains. To see for yourself, check out the ugly stats here. While Google is still the search giant dominating the field, figures from StatCounter confirm that it now has the lowest market share since September 2013. Google’s position on desktop is frailer still, with 76.4 percent of all searches, while Bing and Yahoo…

    While North America still accounts for the majority of social media ad spending worldwide at over 43% in 2013, Asia-Pacific has captured just over 28%, and will continue to close the gap faster than other markets over the next 2 years. In fact, by 2016 it is estimated that North America will come in at just over 40%, with Asia-Pacific at around 31%, eMarketer now projects.

    Alongside its new iPhone and smartwatch hardware launches last month, Apple also introduced users to a new service it was getting ready to kick off, announcing Apple Pay. Intimately tied to the NFC support present on those new iPhones, Apple Pay is set to go active sometime this month, after not being quite ready for prime time when iPhone 6 and 6 Plus sales first began. But now that October’s here, when exactly can we hope to see Apple flip the switch on Apple Pay and welcome iPhone users into the world of mobile payments? ...

However, The New York Times now says that security researchers have discovered a sophisticated malware attack that’s currently spreading in Hong Kong between Occupy Central protesters, and which is able to infect and then spy upon both Android and iOS devices. It’s not clear who’s behind the malware app, but the Chinese government is believed to be involved, as it tries to censor the current pro-democracy protests in Hong…

Even on a two-year contract, you’re still going to spend around $200 for a flagship device from Apple, Samsung or any of the other major vendors, but there’s one easy way to counteract the bite out of your bank account: trade-ins.

In particular, many reviewers took issue with the Passport’s more square design and its boxy frame that they said made the device difficult to hold. BerryFlow’s Jubei Raziel isn’t hearing any of it, however, and he’s written a long tirade that rips into both the media and the average consumer for not being smart enough to comprehend the BlackBerry Passport’s true greatness.

    There has been a lot of hype about “big data” in recent years, but what does it mean for mobile network operators and how can they benefit from it? Big data is a catch-all term that involves new methods and technologies for collecting, managing, and analysing in real-time the vast increase in data (now typically Petabytes, Exabytes and Zettabytes). It has been a buzzword in the oil and financial sectors for several years, but it’s only more recently that network operators are starting to realise its potential. It is especially relevant to operators, who are looking for new ways to…

    Is the cloud and mobile-first strategy making any difference? Microsoft has set its sights firmly on the smartphone market with the acquisition of Nokia. Since the failure of Windows Mobile, its previous smartphone platform, Microsoft desperately needed to unify their struggling mobile hardware and software business. And Nokia, who had been caught off guard by competitors such as Apple and Samsung, needed a much wider audience than it could achieve on its own. When it comes to smartphone market share, things have not been encouraging for Microsoft – Windows Phone only accounts…

I can't imagine anyone reading this still uses the service, since the advent of Mail for Exchange services and servers proved more modern and convenient, plus newer smartphone platforms have CardDAV and CalDAV for push access into the likes of Google. But, just in case this is still relevant to an older device of yours, see the quoted email below.

Moreover, I also take into account facilities like lossless zoom, whereas this slightly questionnable set of test results from the usually reliable DxO mark folks shows the new Apple iPhone 6 models to both be top of the tree, with the classic Nokia 808 in 6th place and the newer Nokia Lumia 1020 down in 10th place overall!

  • Samsung Responds to Galaxy Note 4 #GapGate Concerns, Says It Doesn’t Impact Functionality

    2 Oct 2014 | 12:22 am
    The #BendGate is not over yet and we already have another issue to talk about, but this time it’s Samsung that takes the blame for not thoroughly checking its products before launching them on the market. The iPhone 6 has become the laugh of the stock lately due to the fact that it seems to be easier to bend than other smartphones in the same size range. The competition did not miss the opportunity to take a few jabs at the Cupertino-based company and advertise its own products on iPhone 6’s... (read more)

    Oppo has become one of the major players in the smartphone business thanks to its many popular products like the N1 and Find 7. The Chinese handset maker has been quite successfully with its high-end smartphone priced very low. The Oppo N1 and Find 7 are available internationally, though the company initially launched them in China.

    Motorola DROID Turbo is the next high-end smartphone to be released by the US-based handset maker and from what we’ve learned in the last couple of days, this may be the best Motorola handset to date. Obviously, specs are not everything, but if we are to take into consideration the latest information spotted at GFXBench by the folks over at Droid-Life, Motorola DROID Turbo is a beast. The new Moto X seems an outdated smartphone before it even got released in comparison with the DROID Turbo. ... (read more)

    Even if Nokia is not in the mobile phone business anymore, the Finnish company remains one of the major players in the market thanks to its feature phones. Once world’s more prolific handset maker, Nokia’s mobile phones have been praised for the sturdiness and reliability even if they weren’t tagged as rugged devices. One such handset would be the Nokia 3310, which was amazingly popular at some point back in 2000. Although it’s been 14 years since the device was launched on the market, there... (read more)

    19 Sep 2014 | 8:09 pm
    From Wikipedia: culture: the capacity to classify and encode human experiences symbolically, and to communicate symbolically encoded experiences socially This traditional definition of “culture” – not the only currently operative one, but one still prevalent in much discourse on practices in everyday life – is obviously problematic where the inclusion of nonhuman subjects (and human subjects incapable of sending messages or indicating their understanding of them) is presumed, or even merely contemplated. If one cannot signify, one might argue, one therefore cannot be…

    Looks like Voltage may obtain subscriber info in Canada from Teksavvy, but not without court oversight and privacy protections for people accused of infringement. Still, this was just a motion. The demand letters may roll out soon, but this litigation might prove to be unprofitable, given the tone and language of the judgement. This could play out in many different ways. I’ve long suspected that this case is merely a demo tape for a sweep of a much larger number of suspected infringing IP addresses assigned to the major ISPs.

Well, there is a time limit on these things, and I’m currently at a half time teaching load.

    It has been a learning experience moving my 8 domains (including this one) from a ~$10/month hosting service* to a home server built on the Raspberry Pi. Not counting the small amount of time in labour (possibly 8 hours of learning/testing/configuring things, as I am a novice Apache tinkerer**), I will see savings before 2014 is up. The annual cost of virtual hosting with a hosting company, with a decent Linux server, software installation, full on access to mod-rewrite, unlimited MySQL, etc is ~$135.

    Industry data and vendor surveys are certainly not something new. In fact, we are inundated with facts and figures on a daily basis and most of us are left wondering what it all means. Specifically in our industry, most research centers around how and when brands engage with consumers via mobile devices.

  • 3 Of The Best New Bands At Way Over Yonder Festival

    Ariela Kozin
    1 Oct 2014 | 8:18 pm
    Los Angeles – The recent Way Over Yonder music festival was by far the most relaxed southern California festival of the 2014 season. What a relief to have no long lines, no huge crowds, and no massive venue to navigate. Of course, the beachside view on the iconic Santa Monica pier didn’t hurt either.

  • Top 6 Twitter Apps for Windows Phone

    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…

  • Dark Lands – An Action-packed Endless Runner for Windows Phone

    Kazi Mahbub
    15 Sep 2014 | 10:05 am
    There aren’t many side-scrolling ‘action’ games these days. I used to play Prince of Persia on a dumb Siemens phone as a kid, and it was awesome. Dark Lands is here to bring some of that flavor back, with the necessary improvements and adjustments to play on a smartphone of course. Dark Lands is an endless runner, with the much-needed twist to make it lucrative. The twist here is: you have to fight through monsters, avoid traps, face boss-battles (most of which you will surely lose for quite a while) and do all this with a limited life-bar. The game allows you to upgrade your character…
  • Picnic Rumble – A Unique Side-scroller for Windows Phone 8

    Kazi Mahbub
    8 Sep 2014 | 9:45 am
    If I have to describe Picnic Rumble in one sentence, I’ll pitch it as: “An addictive color-matching game presented as a side-scroller”. That, however, would be a gross understatement. Picnic Rumble has very simple mechanics. It is a 2D side-scroller built on the Unity Engine, something Treemen Games (the developers) seems to specialize at. You have four characters with four distinct colors: Green, Cyan, Yellow, and Magenta (might be Red, I’m poor at describing the color-chart) who are moving in a queue. There is an oncoming traffic of monsters, also varying in hue. You have to make…

POI or point of interest database is amazing and has almost all the businesses for a particular area.

    Marc Rogers
    23 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    Last year, when the iPhone 5S was released, I showed how you could hack its fancy new TouchID fingerprint sensor. A year and one iPhone 6 later, I’ve done it again. When the iPhone 6 came out the first thing I wanted to find out was whether or not there had been any changes to the TouchID sensor. I had little expectation that the TouchID sensor would be completely secure, but I hoped at least that there would have been some improvements. So I set about creating some fake fingerprints using the same technique that I used to hack TouchID on the 5S. Once the fingerprints were ready I tested…

    If you used your credit card at a Home Depot store in the U.S. or Canada between April and about a week or so ago you really should read this post. Home Depot has confirmed that its payment system was breached, which means that 60 million or more credit card numbers likely were stolen, according to The New York Times. (Last year’s Target breach impacted 40 million cardholders, so this could be the largest known breach to date.) First off, don’t panic. If you used a credit card then the bank is typically obligated to compensate you for any fraudulent transactions. However, you really…

    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 Stripe’s, “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. Students and alumni are staying home to watch the games. ESPN ran a series of articles about this issue earlier this year. In these features, students discussed why they were not attending…

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…

Yes, I said “Fighting for.” Movements are not built by the ‘features to benefits’ argument used by journeyman copywriters. Building a movement is a psychological sport.

    Customers can be ​naive, fickle, or simply ignorant. Their choices are heavily biased towards outward appearances. Why do subtle differences cause so much chaos in your sales?Are appearances so important?

  • Samsung: Learning from the PC Era

    Sameer Singh
    26 Sep 2014 | 6:30 am
    This week, Samsung's stock price hit a two year low as analysts slashed profit estimates again. It has become increasingly clear that Samsung is a victim of low-end disruption, caused by intense competition from Asian vendors like Xiaomi, Lenovo and Huawei. In many ways, Samsung is in the same predicament as IBM was during the PC wars. The story of IBM's decline and subsequent revival could hold the key to Samsung's recovery.The chart at the top of this post shows historical revenues for IBM, Apple, Microsoft and Intel (from 1984 to 1997) -- key players in the PC era. IBM was a behemoth at…

    With the iPhone 6 (and 6 Plus) launch just around the corner, this may be a good time to review smartphone market share and usage share trends around the world. As these data points reflect the tail end of the iPhone's product cycle, we should expect a market share bounce over the coming months. On the other hand, movements in usage share are unlikely to be as sharp.As always, market share data is sourced from Kantar and usage share data is from Statcounter. My rationale for using these particular metrics was laid out in my last post on the topic:Because of the regionally…

    Among all the announcements Apple made last week, the one Wall Street seemed most excited about was Apple Pay. Apple has done an admirable job of managing partnerships on with merchants and banking companies, but driving consumer adoption may be more challenging. If implemented correctly, Apple's rumoured loyalty program could ease the way for mobile payments.Many attempts have been made to explain the lack of traction seen by mobile payments -- ranging from infrastructure problems to a lack of trust. In my opinion, the primary reason for this is that credit cards seem to be "good…

In many ways, this announcement brings up more questions than answers.Yesterday's announcements clearly signaled Apple's intention to continue moving upmarket. While the 4.7" device became the new flagship iPhone 6, the 5.5" device (iPhone 6 Plus) was priced $100 above the flagship and seems to be positioned as a "super premium" phablet.

    The big news in tech and retail yesterday: eBay is separating itself from PayPal. As a point-of-sale software provider, we have followed PayPal's activity closely over the years, as the company attempted to break through from online payments to in-store ones. The NY Times reported (Sept. 30) that eBay announced it would spin off its PayPal payments unit into a separately publicliy traded company, following the nine-month-old advice of minority stakeholder Carl Icahn. The split, which should complete by mid-2015, hopes to help PayPal better arm itself against the likes of Apple Pay and Square.

Excitement naturally fades, by design I’d say. It fades even more quickly when the real thing is far from your expectations. Today, I’d use Swift in an app if: it’s a new app it’s a small app it’s a product of mine Right, I’d not venture in Swift land for client work. Why? When something does not work I can’t live with the doubt that it is due to Swift, or me not yet fully…

    I was about to copy a ~35GB file onto my Mac. I got the “can’t be copied because there isn’t enough free space” message. I checked Finder and the available space was ~75GB. First reaction: WTF? Tried a few more times with no success, much like when you keep on switching on/off a broken switch. Then I checked “System information” and I saw the real available space was ~28GB. Same reaction: WTF? After some digging I discovered that it’s Time Machine’s fault. Besides keeping your backup on the designated (usually external) drive, it also keeps a…

  • The Initial Effect Of iOS 8 Spotlight Search On App Discovery

    Sensor Tower
    30 Sep 2014 | 5:25 pm
      When we covered WWDC 2014 back in June, we highlighted eight new features of iOS 8 that would be important to app publishers. One of the more interesting improvements was the integration of App Store search results into Spotlight Search. It was exciting to imagine how much a deeply linked Spotlight Search could contribute to increased visibility for all apps. Now that iOS 8 has been out for awhile, let’s find out if Spotlight Search really does help potential users find your app. This post will show you how it currently works in iOS 8.0.2. iOS 8 Spotlight Search Improvements With…

  • The Complete iOS 8 Subcategories List

    Sensor Tower
    18 Sep 2014 | 8:04 pm
      Earlier this year, Google added new categories to the Google Play app store. This presented an opportunity for app publishers to rank well in the new, less competitive categories. In fact, we saw several apps get ranked in the top 10, with only a few thousand downloads. With the launch of iOS 8, a similar opportunity exists on the Apple App Store. But there are a lot of questions as to what the new categories and subcategories are. This post will give you a complete list of all of the current subcategories, as well as some observations on the category expansion. Initial Observations As…

      There is no shortage of opinions as to if the Apple Watch will be a success or not, even though it won’t be available for a few more months. However, what most people do seem to agree on is that smartwatches are cool. But the big question still remains…will they be widely adopted? It is still too early in the game to tell. But Google and device manufacturers like LG and Samsung have certainly been leading the charge with Android Wear. Samsung alone owns 71% of the smartwatch market. So while we wait for the Apple Watch to hit the market, let’s take a look at what is…

    A theme named after the decade that gave us daring teen comedies and cutting-edge synth pop was bound to be a crowd-pleaser. And indeed, in the few weeks since Eighties was released, it’s garnered tens of thousands of fans who are using it on their sites.

  • 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…

    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…

    Smartphones and mobile apps have become an integral part of everyday life. Consumers expect most businesses and organizations they deal with to provide convenience and utility through apps they can access at any time from their phones. Banking apps are a prime example of this. It wasn’t too long ago that a banking app that simply showed account balances and ATM locations was considered a great add-on benefit for a big name bank. The accessibility and functionality of banking apps have changed what consumers expect from their local branches. Now, mobile banking apps are seen as a…

    30 Sep 2014 | 8:38 am
    Customers want to feel like they are an important part of your business. To increase engagement, text marketing messages should be tailored to the individual consumer, rather than to a group as a whole. It isn’t always easy to make such a transition, especially considering that all customers have different needs and desires. The fact that each customer wants that feeling of being special, however, is one in the same. When you can master tailored messages, you will keep the customers that you have and will better attract new names your way. List segmentation, as the process is known, divides…

At the same time, a Reddit user from Ireland has revealed that O2 Ireland has already rolled out the Lumia Cyan update to its…

  • Sony Xperia C remains at Android 4.2.2

    21 Sep 2014 | 6:49 am
    Sony won’t release any more updates for its Xperia C model, just like it has been rumored for a long while and as we have all expected. After all, there is no mystery that the device which launched on Android 4.2 has received no more than two minor updates, bringing its platform version to Android 4.2.2. We have all hoped for something more than that, but its official page on the Sony website says that this is the final Android release that the Xperia C will ever be receiving, so excepting some minor bug-fixing updates, its support stops here. Too bad for those who have invested their…

    Sony has just released an update for one of its more recent smartphones; the lucky owners of Sony Xperia T2 Ultra have one more reason to love their device. This model was initially updated to 4.4.2 KitKat version in July, but now it seems to be ready for a new platform boost via an update. The new firmware is based on the latest available Android 4.4.3 and comes with several tweaks and security enhancements that Google introduced with it, just like we have all seen on other devices as well. This is something that we were all expecting at, but it seems that Sony has also worked on optimizing…
  • No KitKat for Sony Xperia M, L and SP

    17 Sep 2014 | 9:47 pm
    Sony has just announced its latest decision about Xperia M (and M Dual), Xperia L and Xperia SP and we are sure that all owners won’t be too happy with that. It seems that all these devices will not be updated anymore, leaving them at the current latest software version. For the Xperia M, Xperia M Dual and Xperia L that’s Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, which was released in the first quarter of this year. As for Sony Xperia L, it will always run on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean which was released in October last year. The idea is even more surprising as long as all three Xperia models have a gig of…

  • Nokia Lumia 735 in the UK

    1 Oct 2014 | 9:14 pm
    We have just found out that Microsoft intends to launch the Lumia 735 model in the UK starting this October 2. However, we cannot tell you just yet a SIM-free price for the phone, but we know instead the base monthly price on contract – £20. And we can also tell you its most important specs and features, so don’t decline our invitation of reading and finding out more. The device runs on Windows Phone 8.1 operating system (with Lumia Denim), also coming with a 4.7-inch 720p OLED display and getting its power from a 1.2GHz quad-core CPU model which paired with no less than 8GB of…
  • Aluminum Oppo N3

    1 Oct 2014 | 6:21 am
    We have received a new hint of what we can expect from the Oppo N3 directly from the Chinese company. The description below the photo that has been spotted on Oppo’ Weibo account reveals that we should be expecting to receive “The lightest metal elements into Oppo N3. Do you know what the world’s lightest metal element is?” Well, lithium is the lightest metal element on Earth, but we all know that Lithium is a very reactive material that might not be such an ideal choice when it comes to phone-building purposes, so we can guess that Oppo will choose aluminum instead.

    The new HTC Desire 820Q was just announced for India at a press event that surprised us all. As you have seen from our other articles on this topic, this is not the only device announced there, but we see it as a very decent option. In fact, the Desire 820 and 820Q are identical in terms of specs, excepting the chipset; to be more precise, Desire 820 comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC, while this version sports a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 chipset, with a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor and no more than 1GB of RAM. But the rest is pretty much similar: This HTC Desire 820Q model comes…
