  • Mountain of Mobile Marketing: Mobile Shopping Climbing New Peaks

    Mobile Marketer
    16 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
    In 2010, there were an estimated 35.9 million mobile shoppers. That’s a drop in the bucket compared to what’s coming: the 130 million mobile shoppers anticipated in 2015. The reason? Smartphones, for starters. Simple, and apps like PayPal and platforms like Apple Pay allow consumers to save their info and transform buying into pretty much a one-click activity. “With the younger generations (ages 25-44) especially, 58 percent of those shoppers who use mobile devices prefer to look up information on their mobile devices while shopping, rather than asking an employee,”…

  • The Windows 10 preview will work on more phones soon

    27 Mar 2015 | 7:07 pm
    If you've been itching to try out a technical preview version of Windows 10 on your phone but didn't have a device on the short list, then we have good news. Microsoft just released a list of devices that it expects to support in the next "flight" and it includes additional Lumia models like the 1020, 1320, 1520, 920, Icon and so on (the list is after the break -- it does not include the Lumia 930). It will be at least a week until the next update rolls out, but there's no specific date promised, and the list of supported devices could change.%Gallery-slideshow267109% Filed under: Cellphones,…

    Artists and comedians have been doing some truly amazing things with Vine since it launched as a Twitter product two years ago, but those mesmerizing slices of life that eat up your day in six-second increments have never really looked all that great. That's finally starting to change, according to a blog post by Vine API lead Mike Kaplinskiy -- you'll start seeing vines in 720p (up from the normal, eye-searing 480p) in the team's iOS and Android apps within the next few days, but some of them can already be spotted embedded around the web.

  • Watch Periscope livestreams on Windows Phone with unofficial app

    Devindra Hardawar
    27 Mar 2015 | 7:13 am
    Live streaming apps like Twitter's Periscope and Meerkat are all the rage right now, but so far they've only been accessible to iPhone users. Enter Telescope, a third-party Periscope app for Windows Phone, which opens up the service's live streams to an entirely new audience. You can't actually broadcast your own streams from the app yet (the developer says it's coming), but you can sign up for Periscope and view other live feeds from within the app. It's not a complete solution, but it's something until Twitter rolls out an official Windows Phone client. Expect to wait a while though -- even…

    The phone in these images looks like the LG G3, but you might notice some subtle differences. That's because it could actually be pictures of the brand's yet-to-be-released flagship, the G4. An XDA Developer user called s3rv1cet3ch posted a folder of images on the forum, explicitly calling it the G4. The user also pointed out that it has stylus on the top left corner, but if this is the Korean version of the device, that could very well be a TV antenna. After all, G3's Korean version has an antenna you can pull out on that exact spot. Filed under: Cellphones, Mobile, LG Comments Via: Android…

  • BT returns to the UK mobile market with 3 SIM-only tariffs

    Ben Woods
    25 Mar 2015 | 2:54 am
    BT, the UK’s incumbent telecom infrastructure owner and national landline provider, today announced its first moves back into offering consumer-facing mobile services with BT Mobile. Initially, its not offering up hardware, so customers will need to provide their own handsets to take advantage of the SIM-only plans, which start from £5 per month for existing BT Broadband customers. The company said discounts for broadband customers (versus non-customers) would be as high as 50 percent. Handily, they apply to anyone in the household, not just account holders. The cheapest plan (£5) offers…

In January, the operator confirmed that it had been in talks to take over the O2 brand in the UK in a deal valued at £10.5 billion ($15.7 billion). According to the Wall Street Journal today, the value of the sale is actually £9.25 billion (around $13.8 billion).

  • HTC One M9 review: An incredibly capable handset that just isn’t very exciting

    Ben Woods
    22 Mar 2015 | 5:01 pm
    HTC seems to have a bizarre phenomenon on its hands. It keeps designing flagship handsets that win design awards and the heart of many a tech reviewer, but fail to actually propel the company to the sort of performance of some of its rivals. Or even its early success with the Desire range at the beginning of the smartphone boom. The HTC One M9 probably won’t worry the competition too much, but that’s by no means to say it’s a bad handset, or that it shouldn’t be on your shortlist. It’s more that, if you already like the design and performance… This story continues at The Next…

    More than 10 years ago, I started MuniWireless. I thought I would be writing strictly about large-scale municipal Wi-Fi projects, but soon after I launched the site, I became drawn into battles in the United States between the cable-telco duopoly and everyone else (business owners, residents, tech companies, and certain officials in states, counties and cities) who wanted more competition in the market for broadband services. A number of US states have laws that restrict communities from building their own broadband networks — wired and wireless. These laws have been written by…

All you can think is: why is this happening to me? It’s most likely because your broadband speed is 4 Mbps, which is the average download speed in the United States. High-speed Internet access has become a necessity, which is why the FCC has redefined “broadband” to mean  connection speeds of 25 Mbps and greater. This shift forces Internet service providers…

    Over the last few months, it’s become painfully evident that the concept of government of the people, by the people, and for the people has morphed into government gives us the business, is run by business, and is there to serve business. The real power lies with the geriatric leaders of the House and Senate who listened to Cecil and Beanie live during the golden age of radio. They usually do what they are told by the special interest groups that keep them in office (the average age of the leadership of the House and Senate is 72 years old, so some of those relationships have been around a…

    The Housing Authority of Los Angeles has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) to deploy and run a Wi-Fi network for 700 apartments in the Jordan Downs Housing development, a low-income housing project. According to the Scope of Work (Exhibit 1), the Wi-Fi network at Jordan Downs needs to be replaced because of the failure of a large number of Cisco Meraki access points (as well as end of support for the APs). The winning bidder will get a two-year contract, renewable for three one-year terms, at the discretion of the Housing Authority. The deadline for responses to the RFP is 30 January 2015.

    I'm a big believer in 4G. Not just because I can do certain *tasks* faster, but because it just *feels* fast. Some of that perception is from quicker connection and start-up times than 3G, some is from impressive headline numbers when I've run a speed-test, but a lot is from a sense of "potential", knowing it's there if I need it.It transpires that something similar is true of fibre in the fixed world - especially in FTTP (fibre to the premise) guise, according from some proper consumer research done by friends at Diffraction Analysis.

    LG G Flex 2 More than a year after its first attempt, LG has rolled out its latest stab at a curved smartphone. While the practicality of a bent handset is still up in the air, there’s no doubt that this kind of design looks stunning, and that it gives the South Korean giant something instantly recognizable that it can sell alongside its flagship proper. Recognizable doesn’t equal good, however, and for as striking as the original G Flex was, its ugly display and oversized dimensions made it much easier to stare at than to actually use. Thankfully, LG has significantly touched up those…

That of course, as we’ve seen rumors and images of already, is the upcoming LG G4. And while we’ve seen a few leaked images already, today we’re getting more details on the specs, as well as a potential release date. Last year the LG G3 was announced in late May and arrived over a month later, far behind the competition.

    Samsung Galaxy S5 Lollipop Update: 10 Things to Expect Now is a post by Adam Mills from Gotta Be Mobile. The Samsung Galaxy S5 Android 5.0 Lollipop update has been rolling out since December. And while it has made significant strides, there are still plenty of devices and plenty of people on Android 4.4 KitKat. With details and questions swirling, we want to take a look at what we expect going forward from the Samsung Galaxy S5 Lollipop update and release. When Google announced Android 5.0 Lollipop at Google I/O 2014, it didn’t say when it would be released to the public. In November,…

    23 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
    The Mobile Marketing Association has just released its newest report — the Smart Mobile Cross Marketing Effectiveness (SMoX) study — which makes a powerful case for the “economic value” of mobile. …The study assessed the economic value of mobile compared to traditional marketing channels by closely examining real, in-market campaigns from Coca-Cola, Walmart, MasterCard and AT&T. Based on the published study results, the optimal spend for mobile (based on total campaign spend) is in the double digits — “far more than most marketers are currently allocating,”…

    Small businesses in the United States are poised to spend record sums on digital marketing this year. According to the latest industry data, businesses owners are feeling good about the new year. So if you were anxious about the state of small businesses in America, a new poll by the National Small Business Association (NSBA) should put your fears to rest.

  • Mountain of Mobile Marketing: Mobile Shopping Climbing New Peaks

    Mobile Marketer
    16 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
    In 2010, there were an estimated 35.9 million mobile shoppers. That’s a drop in the bucket compared to what’s coming: the 130 million mobile shoppers anticipated in 2015. The reason? Smartphones, for starters. Simple, and apps like PayPal and platforms like Apple Pay allow consumers to save their info and transform buying into pretty much a one-click activity. “With the younger generations (ages 25-44) especially, 58 percent of those shoppers who use mobile devices prefer to look up information on their mobile devices while shopping, rather than asking an employee,”…

    In the mobile age, consumers are constantly bouncing between multiple screens multiple times daily. For marketers, this creates a virtually endless array of challenges and opportunities. When it comes to delivering targeted ads in video campaigns (one of the hottest trends in all of marketing today), you first have to identify where your core audience is at any given time. “Over the past few years, consumers have drastically altered their video viewing habits, taking advantage of the many platforms available to watch video, whenever and wherever they want,” says comScore in a new…

    A recent Twitter survey conducted by Kantar Worldpanel ComTech, a global research expert in the telecoms field, unearthed some interesting observations. Kantar queried consumers in the U.S. and Great Britain about mobile use, tablet purchases, and more. What did the company discover? “We know that tablet sales are stagnant and that 79 percent of American (respondents) without a tablet have said that the reason they are not planning to buy a tablet in the next 12 month is because their PC is ‘good enough’ for them,” noted Kantar. “When we asked consumers who own a PC if…

    Earlier today (OK, overnight) we took a look at an unreleased LG smartphone suspected to be a possible G4. Unlike previous depictions of the hardware, though, this one didn’t feature the rumored curved display. So was this really the G4, or maybe a lower-tier addition to LG’s Android lineup? We’re thinking about that now as a new rumor arrives that reinforces the idea of a curved G4, as well as provides us with a launch ...

    It’s been almost a year since we reviewed the first generation of Motorola’s most budget-priced smartphone: the Moto E. The word “budget” carries with it images of dread and avoidance – though it shouldn’t, especially when referring to the Moto E. Last year we said “you don’t get something for nothing,” and questioned whether Motorola Mobility sacrificed “too much” on the way to becoming “affordable.” This year the 2015 Moto E (or “Moto E Gen 2″ if you prefer) hit the ground running.

    Although the DWQA Questions and Answers plugin for WordPress has been updated to work with Multisite, it probably won’t work as expected.  At the time of this writing, the problem appears to be new user creation and the multisite default functionality.  In order to accept the DWQA default method of answering questions, which is that only registered users can post answers to questions asked by anonymous users, you have to allow them to register.  First, on my Multisite subsite I had no option to allow user registration.  Even after enabling it at my main blog as network administrator…

  • How many Android users will convert to iPhone because of the Apple Watch?

    27 Mar 2015 | 6:45 pm
    As applied to Apple, the ‘halo effect’ refers to the dynamic wherein the popularity and success of one product incentivizes  consumers to purchase other Apple products they might not otherwise have given a second look. The first notable example of this dynamic was seen when the iPod became a household name back in the mid-2000s. Building on this, the unparalleled success of the iPhone and iPad further served to familiarize the masses with the Apple brand, thereby having a discernible impact on Mac sales overall. Looking ahead, with the Apple Watch launch on the horizon, Apple’s most…
  • HTC still in turmoil: Lead designer out after just one year on the job

    It’s never a good sign to see a major executive shakeup at a company just after it makes a major product launch — see Windows 8 architect Steven Sinofsky’s abrupt departure from Microsoft after Windows 8 launched, for instance. This is now the case with HTC, which last week announced that CEO Peter Chou would be replaced by chairman Cher Wang less than a month after the company unveiled its flagship HTC One M9 phone. And now Engadget brings us word of another key departure: Jonah Becker, HTC’s VP of Industrial Design, who leaves the company after just a year working as its lead…

    What a pleasure it was to have a few minutes (well it seemed like a few minutes) to take a look back at UMPCs from 2006-2010 at the Techlounge last week.  If you want to know where the roots of the consumer-focused tablet are look no further than the Origami project. Others had done tablets before but Microsoft, Intel, VIA and a few manufacturers and brands did research from 2004 that resulted in the consumer-focused UMPC. While the research was correct (hat tip to Otto Berkes, wherever he is) the results, as products, were too big and lacked adequate software. Hey, It wasn’t until 3…

In all we created around 25 videos in German and English and it was interesting to take a look at stuff I don’t normally look at. Curved monitors, for example.

Working with brands like Carl’s Jr., CiCi’s Pizza, Dairy Queen, McDonald’s and New Belgium Brewery is exciting as we see help them optimize engagement at each stage of the customer journey, resulting in additional customers, repeat store visits, increased purchase values.
  • Retail in the ring – what retailers can learn from the UFC

    Sam Balter
    23 Mar 2015 | 3:37 am
    Everything in retail seems to be dying. For years headlines like “The end of retail stores” and “Brick & mortar is dead” have consistently reminded us that the end of traditional retail has arrived. When you hear about Amazon’s continuous revenue growth and their testing of drones to fly packages to your door, it seems that physical stores are becoming obsolete compared to online retailers. Despite what it looks like though, physical stores vs. virtual stores is not quite the David and Goliath story you may think. Pure online retailers like Gilt Groupe and Fab are having major…

  • Invisible Boyfriend – How a team of people can be your significant other

    11 Mar 2015 | 4:16 am
    My parents believe in dividing up the responsibility of pestering their kids. Throughout my life, my father pestered me to always have a job and my mother pestered me to always have a girlfriend. When I heard of the service Invisible Boyfriend and Invisible Girlfriend, I instantly understood why someone would use it. This viral sensation “gives you real-world validation and social proof that you’re in a relationship – even if you’re not – so you can get back to living life on your own terms.” Invisible Boyfriend is fascinating for a few reasons: it’s a new category of…

  • Galaxy S6 Coming to Boost April 10

    Liz E.
    27 Mar 2015 | 2:22 pm
    Sprint prepaid brand Boost Mobile officially announced yesterday via Facebook that it will be carrying the much-awaited Samsung Galaxy S6 starting April 10. While it isn’t news that the prepaid carrier will have the S6, I was a little surprised that they will be getting it so early–April 10 is the same day that the postpaid carriers will be selling the new device. If you hadn’t heard, the new S6 has been turning heads and making noise since its debut at the Mobile World Congress earlier this year. This successor to the dreadfully ugly Galaxy S5 and the far more successful S4…
  • How Much Do You Save with Prepaid?

    Liz E.
    27 Mar 2015 | 10:43 am
    It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that when you pay less for something and you have the freedom to change things to suit your needs and budget, you’re going to end up saving money. That’s just basic economics. But, it’s one thing to know that you’d probably save a bit of money and another thing entirely to look at exactly how much money you’d probably save. This week, I took a few minutes and browsed through the four Tier One carriers to compare their prepaid and postpaid plans. The plan that I compared was a basic unlimited talk and text plan with 1…
  • Kyocera Launches Phone Recycling Program

    Liz E.
    27 Mar 2015 | 6:08 am
    Because prepaid phones are generally a little less expensive than their more expensive contract counterparts, there’s probably a good chance that you have at least one old device sitting gathering dust in a drawer somewhere. However, phone maker Kyocera wants to help consumers recycle their unused devices with a new program called ‘Take Back.’ During this free program, consumers can print off shipping labels through Kyocera and, on Kyocera’s dime, send unused devices to the company for responsible recycling of the usable components. For every four phones recycled,…

Screenshots   TL;DR Basically we have reached a point where we unanimously agree that the default Xbox Music app on WP is a turd that can’t be polished. At least till Windows 10 comes along that is. Given that’s still a tad far off, third-party apps are often the solution to this rather unsightly problem. This is where “zbox” comes in. Zbox tries to mimic the functionality and looks of the long-forgotten Zune Music on Windows, and add a few extra features to the mix. Upon…

    The change in Google's narrative over the past few months has been very interesting to watch. The recent "Peak Google" proclamations remind me of Facebook's post-IPO narrative in 2012. Conventional wisdom back then was that Facebook's decline was imminent as mobile was not a meaningful part of their revenue. Of course, Facebook's app install ads and other mobile initiatives disproved that narrative in short order.Some observers even make it seem as though Google's growth has seen a major slowdown in 2014. Interestingly, both Google's revenue and operating profit growth accelerated in 2014.

  • What State is your mobile app in?

    4 Mar 2015 | 8:35 am
    One question, multiple answers What State is your app in? As our client, that question might mean something different to you than it does to us. For you, it may mean how close to release you are, or what your app looks like compared to your competition. When we think of State, we think of the number of decisions that the app is making at any given time. Is the user logged in or not? Is the device connected to the internet? What search parameters have been typed in? Each of these questions – and hundreds of others – all contribute to what software developers refer to as State: The…
  • Imagining the future of mobile

    Chad Jones
    5 Feb 2015 | 9:06 am
    I was talking to a colleague recently and couldn’t believe that Apple sold 34,000 phones an hour in this last quarter. “What would the future hold if this trend continues for five or ten years?” was a question posed to me. It seems clear the trend will continue so the implications of that future are important – and fun! – to imagine. Future generations will not walk into a bank The notion of branches, ATMs, and physically entering a bank to get cash will become obsolete. Mobile payments such as Apple Pay (or its rivals) will take over. The only reason a person…
  • Why We Think SmartWatches (and the iWatch) Will be Popular

    Chad Jones
    2 Feb 2015 | 1:51 pm
    Quicker and more discreet access to information SmartWatches allow you to simply look down and gather the same information you would have had to take your phone out for. To many people, this doesn’t seem like an important enough reason to buy a new device. However, once someone uses a Smartwatch as part of their day-to-day life, they grow accustomed to the simplicity and ease-of-access to information, and can’t understand how they lived without it. This doesn’t even take into account watches as stand-only devices; for some people, you might take your watch and leave…

    As it is early in 2015 I wanted to list some of the exciting trends we see coming in 2015. Wearables Wearables are something that aren’t really “new” with Android Wear being around for awhile. But with the actual release of Apple Watch to the masses I think this will be the start of a new trend of apps for Wearables. Similar to but perhaps not as large as apps for smartphones back in 2009. It may be in the future that an App isn’t just expected by customers but also a watch app or wearables app as well. Wearables offer quicker access to everything you can access on…

    27 Mar 2015 | 2:45 pm
    Forbes reported yesterday (March 26) that Amazon is in talks to purchase luxury online retailer Net-a-Porter, in what could be the e-commerce giant's largest acquisition ever. "The talks could still fall apart, as the negotiations remain in early stages, according to a person familiar with the situation," wrote Forbes' Ryan Mac. "The person also said if a deal is completed, it is likely to be at a lower price than the 2 billion euros, or $2.19 billion, reported by Women's Wear Daily." Net-a-Porter posted sales of about $835 million for the one-year period ending in March 2014. Mac adds…

    Apple is gonna offer a trade-in promotion. It started it a few years ago but now it’s gonna open it to non-Apple smartphones. I am all for recycling when possible, so this is a great news. Still I think this is a pretty unexpected move. I read it as an acknowledgment of competitors. Apple once pushed the “Think Different” campaign. For twenty years they not so implicitly claimed: We are on a different level We know there are competitors out there but we pretend they don’t exist (unless they are Microsoft and they come with a bag of cash). We don’t compete,…

    I shiver every single time I hear that. Maybe I have just been unlucky but I have been involved in very weird situations. One time a guy had an old crappy PC, slow like hell. He had the great idea to buy a bluetooth headset. We spent usually half an hour to have a meeting that could have lasted five minutes. We talked in chunks of 20 seconds. That was the longest chunk because the headset kept dropping the connection to the device. Unfortunately that guy was also one of those that “wants to understand why”. So after each call dropped he spent a minute or so to collect the logs. As…

I remember that to complete a homework I needed a function and it was like one that my mentor already shared with me. So I took his code and, on purpose, exchanged all the occurrences of ‘=’ with ‘==’ and then submitted. My mentor was a super calm and cozy guy. As he saw my code he yelled at me for 10 seconds and then he started explaining me the difference between…

    Stephen Fluin
    20 Mar 2015 | 7:45 am
    Fashion and Technology have long been frenemies. For decades, technologists and computer scientists have, in some ways, been shunned by society. It’s only been in the last 10 years or so with the rise of Apple and the consumerization of technology that these worlds have been able to intermingle. This ceasefire was great for consumers and device manufacturers until 2014, but with the explosion of Wearable technologies, fashion is now an integral part of launching a technology product. When you look at this weeks’ announcement of the Apple Watch, they have effectively launched a single…
  • How the Appstore Changed Software Development

    Benjamin Gramlich
    11 Mar 2015 | 6:31 am
    Long ago, in order to install apps on a computer, you had to go to a brick and mortar store and peruse aisles of boxed floppy disks or cd-roms. Consumers had to decipher an arcane list of hardware and system requirements to determine if the application they wanted to purchase would run on the computer they had at home. Return policies were stringent and unforgiving. If you went home and tried to install application only to find out your version of windows was too old or you didn’t have the necessary sound card, you were out fifty bucks and two hair pulling hours of your time. In 2008…

    Prepare to become addicted to yet another simple mobile game for iOS (iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch) and Android. Magic Touch: Wizard for Hire fits into the genre of endless survival in a way, and is very unique in many other ways. This arcade game from Nitrome succeeds in its simple but stylish pixelated graphics, enticing gameplay based on beating high scores, and a lack of free-to-play gimmicks that many other free mobile games suffer from. The player takes control of a mighty wizard who is actively defending a castle from invading warriors. Soldiers of varying shape and size drop down from…

    Age of Thrones is as infuriating as it is fun – and for good reason. This iOS (iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch) and Android game from Nexrage Studios is a tactician’s strategic challenge. Based heavily in a medieval fantasy world, it is a sandbox tower defense game where there are practically no bounds on where you place your towers. In Age of Thrones, there seems to be specific allusions to the similarly titled Game of Thrones in world and style. Aside from this, this strategy game has its own unique story and style. There has been an era of constant war and chaos, and a lone hero must put…

World Zombination is an iOS game (iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad) from Proletariat that does a pretty good job at keeping the infected at bay, save for a few weak points. The human team is slightly more tactical, and more closely lines up with the gameplay of a traditional tower defense game.

The update didn't help most of the users and they still felt irritated and upset with their touch.Now, Microsoft is back…
