    We told you to put on your disappointment pants for the Galaxy Gear 2, but for the Rufus Cuff we suggest rolling up your absurdity sleeves. Seriously, given its three-inch screen you might just have to. This wearable boasts a built-in mic, a camera, a speaker, web browser, voice control, GPS and full access to the Google Play store -- if the Cuff sounds like a smartphone that straps to your wrist, well, that's basically what it is. It connects to your Android or iPhone via Bluetooth for mobile data, making calls and sending texts, but it's running a full version of Google's mobile OS and can…

    Former Oppo exec Pete Lau announced his plans to make "the perfect smartphone" a few months ago, and now the OnePlus One is almost here. Its launch is scheduled for April 23rd, but Android Authority points out these pictures posted on a forum that claim to show press renders of the device itself and "StyleSwap" covers that will let owners customize its looks. Not-so-shockingly, what we're seeing looks a lot like the Oppo Find 5, although the only question left is whether they're authentic or just a fan's creation. We've already gotten a sneak peek at the CyanogenMod software it will run, and…

    Odds are that you weren't riveted by Beats Music when it first arrived, but the streaming service has just delivered a pair of big updates that may give you a good excuse to tune in. For the iOS app, the biggest improvement is visible when you're signing up -- you can now subscribe from within the software rather than heading to the web. The move makes it that much easier to keep the music flowing after your trial is over, and may just help Beats grow its fledgling customer base.

If you're currently paying $60 a month for 2GB, your allotment will jump to 2.5 gigs, while those on the $40, 250MB plan will now get 500MB per month. More data is only part of the value proposition for GoPhone customers, though; the new 2.5GB plan will now offer the ability to use your phone as a WiFi hotspot.

    It's no secret, HTC has an image problem. Despite consistently creating some of our favorite phones, it's failed to reach the heights of popularity of manufacturers like Samsung. That could soon change. In what is almost certainly not a coincidence, HTC has hired Samsung's former Chief Marketing Officer, Paul Golden. The Verge confirmed the rumor, first picked up by Bloomberg, earlier this afternoon. Golden, who "created and launched the highly successful Galaxy brand for Samsung," according to his LinkedIn profile, was reportedly hired on as a consultant to Chairwoman Cher Wang. Filed under:…

However, Apple continues to still be “comfortably ahead” in terms of worldwide revenue“, reports TechCrunch, generating a whopping 85% more revenue than Google Play.

  • Nike has reportedly fired most of its FuelBand team and is getting out of the hardware business

    Mathew Ingram
    18 Apr 2014 | 6:49 pm
    Nike has let go most of the members of its FuelBand wearables unit and will stop developing new versions of the device, according to a report by CNET. The tech news site quoted an unnamed person “familiar with the matter” as saying that the firm has laid off 70 to 80 percent of its 70-person hardware division and will not produce a new version of the FuelBand, but will continue to sell the existing version. Some industry observers believe Nike has decided to align itself with Apple, which is expected to launch an iWatch or other wearable device that might run Nike’s Fuel…

The Federal Communications Commission on Friday released its recommendations for how the upcoming broadcast airwaves incentive auction should be conducted. It will impact mobile carriers, internet companies, TV broadcasters and proponents of free-to-use unlicensed spectrum. The incentive auction will be the first of its kind, requiring an enormously complex process involving a reverse auction, a reconfiguration of the UHF TV band, and a forward auction of newly…

    Dean Bubley

    AT&T is rapidly becoming the Internet's Public Enemy #1. Its sponsored data API programme is sufficiently misguided that it is fairly harmless. It has virtually no chance of achieving what it sets out to do, as I explained in this blog post last month. It also sets itself on the "right side" of Net Neutrality quite carefully, by avoiding any reference to possible differential treatment of traffic. It is just aimed at differential pricing - more specifically, zero-rating certain websites and maybe apps, by having the "upstream" provider pick up the tab.What I've found unclear was whether…

Who initially suggests the time and the format? Who decides whether to invite other people to the meeting as well?Numerous factors determine the choice. Is one person travelling? Does someone work from home rather than an office? Which has the busiest schedule and the least time to go out? Who requested the meeting?.... and, perhaps the most important: who has the most power and influence in the interaction?If…

    Confidential documents obtained from Apple indicate that, despite all the rumors, the company’s first entry into wearable computing will not be a watch. Instead, Apple plans a line of intelligent body piercings, collectively known as iPierce. The first iPierce devices will be an eyebrow ring and a navel barbell (which Apple calls a stud). Both include a microphone, speaker, Bluetooth LE, WiFi, motion sensor, GPS, 4 MP camera, four gigs of RAM, and a lithium ion battery. The ring also includes a small low-power laser (more on that below), and the stud has a USB connector that enables it to…
  • More Thoughts on Facebook/Oculus

    Michael Mace
    27 Mar 2014 | 10:21 am
    In yesterday’s post on the Oculus acquisition (link), I focused on the idea that Facebook sees virtual reality as the future of social networking. I was skeptical of the Oculus deal because I see VR as a more fundamental change with much broader implications to the industry. There is an alternate view, as a commenter on the post pointed out. Let’s assume for a minute that Mark Zuckerberg actually does understand the potential for VR to be far more than a communication technology. As I wrote last year (link), I think 3D displays combined with 3D printing and gesture interfaces can be the…
  • Facebook, Ego, and Oculus Rift

    26 Mar 2014 | 11:03 pm
    When a big company is still controlled by its founders, its greatest strength is that it has the resources and the freedom to do almost anything, regardless of the shortsighted fears of investors. That’s also its greatest weakness. Case in point, Facebook.I can rationalize reasons why Oculus VR is a good fit for Facebook, but I think the official explanation for the deal is pretty thin. To me, it says more about Facebook’s ego than it does about a coherent long-term strategy. Deals like this between dissimilar companies have a long history of failure in Silicon Valley; to make it work,…

    I’ve spent many hours trying to puzzle out Google’s product plans. What’s the logic behind Google Drive, how does Motorola fit in a software company, and on and on (link). But with the acquisition of Nest, I think I’m going to stop looking for a single product strategy. I believe Google’s mission statement to “organize the world’s information” is no longer a meaningful guide to its actions. To me, the company looks less and less like a unified product company and more and more like a post-modern conglomerate.The idea behind the “Internet of Things” is that network…
  • Wearability is Not Enough

    Michael Mace
    13 Jan 2014 | 9:26 pm
    I want to believe.The forecasts for wearable computing are remarkable. The headline in Wired declared, “Wearable Tech Will Be as Big as the Smartphone,” but the article went even further:“We’re...seeing an explosion of these devices on the market.... A new device revolution is at hand...wearable devices are poised to push smartphones aside.” (link)So wearables aren’t just a new market, they’re the replacement for the smartphone.The article acknowledges that may seem like an outlandish prediction, but argues:“It may seem laughable to suggest that people will soon neglect their…

    18 Apr 2014 | 7:00 am
    Vine and Instagram are enjoying a dramatic spike in usage today among users of all age groups, but particularly Millennials. With the increasing popularity of posting short-form videos, many brands and businesses are wisely looking for effective ways to effectively utilize these social platforms. Among newbies to these hot social properties, the question that first arises is whether short-form videos are better suited for advertising or brand building purposes. When looking at the trends of both small businesses and national brands, short-form videos seem to have the most potential when it…

    In case you missed it, here are some of the top stories in mobile marketing and advertising we’ve been following this week. Should Mobile Marketers Start Thinking More Seriously About 3D? If 3D is the next big thing in smartphones, should mobile marketers begin thinking about this technology and how it may be harnessed? Although it’s important to not let the imagination run completely wild about this prospect, it’s difficult to keep the mind from wondering this week as speculation emerges that Amazon is about to roll out a game-changing smartphone in the next two to three months.

    Why You’ll Want a Windows Phone 8.1 Device Over the iPhone 5s is a post by Travis Pope from Gotta Be Mobile. You’d be forgiven for thinking Microsoft had abandoned Windows Phone, its mobile operating system. Statements made by the company sounded as if it’d given up on topping the iPhone 5s. The company’s recent actions left Windows Phone 8 users, and potential Windows Phone 8 buyers, all asking the same questions. In a world where Microsoft’s services are available everywhere, why would someone consider purchasing a Windows Phone? Also, even if they did purchase a Windows Phone,…

    AllCast Screen Mirroring Now Available as an App for Fire TV is a post by Warner Crocker from Gotta Be Mobile. Since its release two weeks ago, Amazon’s Fire TV has taken some kudos and taken some lumps from various quarters for various reasons. One of those lumps has been the “lock-in” that keeps users focused primarily on Amazon’s content. Even though Apps are available for Netflix, Hulu Plus and other content providers, Amazon, naturally so, favors its own content from its own stores. Other content providers aren’t yet integrated into the celebrated Voice…

Microsoft is making a big play to woo iPad users who like, or are forced into using Microsoft Office at work or home. After the recent release of the Office Apps for the iPad, most of the attention has been focused on the versions of Word, Excel, and Powerpoint. But there is another Office App that has been available for the iPad for quite some time. That would be OneNote for iPad. Microsoft recently updated the iPad version of OneNote to match it up with its newer, more popular siblings.

    5 Windows 8 Apps Worth Using on a Desktop or Notebook Start Screen is a post by Travis Pope from Gotta Be Mobile. Regardless of whether I agree with it or not, the Start Screen in Windows 8 has earned a very bad reputation. Of course, that’s always the case, isn’t it? Longtime users of a single product not only don’t want change, they don’t want their favorite products to evolve. It doesn’t help that the Windows 8 Start Screen introduces some very serious changes to the way people use their devices. Luckily, the Start Screen has some big features working in its favor.

    TV commercials generate billions of dollars for TV networks, network affiliate stations, and cable channels across the nation each year. Their significant earning potential has always left TV commercials generating significantly more revenue than any other form of advertising. That is… until now. According to a new report by the Interactive Advertising Bureau, the increase in mobile advertising has allowed Internet advertising as a whole to surpass both cable TV commercial revenue, and broadcast commercial revenue when looked at individually.

A survey recently conducted by Demand Metric asked 521 marketers about their recent efforts in order to find out, including the difference between enterprise marketers and small business owners when it comes to the way they look at content and strategy. They also asked these marketers what they felt about their success rate and, interestingly, only 13% responded that they think their content strategy is “very successful,” a response that doesn’t seem buoyantly confident in retrospect.

    Reaching consumers through online content is the trendy “new” way to advertise and market brands. The big problem is that there’s no true definition of content marketing or “native advertising” and, while many publishers, brands and marketers argue about said definition, they’re missing the fact that no matter what they provide to consumers, they should be focusing on the experience that they’re creating rather than just on simply creating a ton of content for consumers to digest. The questions that advertisers and brands should be asking about content marketing run along the…

    Home brewing is rewarding but it’s also often fraught with peril — if you don’t thoroughly sterilize all of your equipment or if you drop in the yeast while your wort is still hot, it can ruin hours of hard work. Bloomberg Businessweek has written a profile on former Windows engineer Bill Mitchell, who left Microsoft in 2010 to work full-time on PicoBrew, a startup that’s dedicated to take away as many potential pain points as possible for home brewers. Last fall, PicoBrew launched a Kickstarter for Zymatic, its own automatic beer brewing appliance that raised more than $660,000, or…

This is probably the first time I’ve seen Google Glass being used in a manner outside the standard ultra-geek methodology. In fact this video is worth watching to demonstrate just how naturally children — the next generation approaching fast — will assimilate and acclimatise to technology that we currently have all sorts of problems with. Watch the natural reactions of the children to the experiences. I love it. Great idea.

(The latest Ideacentre Horizon tablet is retailing for £1,399 on Lenovo’s site at the moment.) Well, the market is about to hot up with new entrant, Ocado.

That was smart. All you needed was a 4G capable device and boom, you were entitled to 4G. Their recent announcement about inclusive 0800 numbers did take me by surprise. For the longest time, operators have been quietly smiling with relief at the revenue certainty.

    25 Mar 2014 | 3:15 pm
    Great. I’ve been meaning to post this for quite a while. I did a series of mobile marketing workshops at the Digital Marketing Show a little while ago. Bizcrowd had a big presence at the show and I was invited to talk about the issue of ‘effective mobile marketing’ for small businesses. I had to keep it rather generic and straight forward given the audience (small business owners, new to the internet and mobile). So if you’d like to see me doing a bit of passion, then have a watch. A few f-words slipped through so don’t play it in the office if someone’s likely to get offended:

    All About Symbian

  • Nine years before the iPad, Nokia's 'Symbian' M510...

    17 Apr 2014 | 1:33 am
    Widely reported today after the publishing of a Finnish book, 'The Decline and Fall of Nokia', is that there was a Symbian-running Internet tablet back in 2001, that made it into very limited production, with some details revealed below. Well, kind of Symbian - in fact, this ran EPOC, the same touch-screen OS that powered the Psion palmtops, including the netBook and Series 7. Over the next four years, EPOC was taken and split into three different Symbian production UIs and an almighty mess was created. But that's a rant we've been over before.
  • Whatsapp updates continue, redesigned chat UI

    17 Apr 2014 | 1:09 am
    Whatsapp, despite being a pretty core Symbian application for many people, hasn't been (consistently) in the Nokia Store for many months, so the freezing of the latter didn't cause it to skip a beat. For complicated reasons (my SIM keeps switching devices, essentially), I can't really use Whatsapp at all, but I did get notified by Nilanjan Dubey about a major new version, 2.11.461, bringing "Major UI changes within chat, and the option to change your number has been introduced". Which is worth a flow, at least!
  • How to: The Art of Xenon

    17 Apr 2014 | 12:25 am
    Having a 'proper' Xenon flash in your smartphone (we're talking Nokia 808 and Lumia 1020 here) doesn't necessarily give you better low light shots of people - you have to know how to use the technology to best effect too. After criticism from some quarters about 'missed shots', I thought a 'how to' guide to Xenon might be in order, whichever of Nokia's flagship camera phones you own.
  • AppList fixes and extra translations

    14 Apr 2014 | 2:25 am
    Anyone starting AppList today may be puzzled by an update to the popular Symbian app store client with a completely blank changelog! This, it turns out, is a bug in the previous version (these things happen), so tap on that 'Download' button and you'll soon have v1.0 Build 285 installed and working happily. And, hopefully, a visible changelog for future updates!
  • Project Ara a glimpse of one possible smartphone future

    11 Apr 2014 | 7:52 am
    File this one very definitely under 'don't hold your breath', not least because you're reading this on AAS and AAWP, neither of which platforms will see anything close to this anytime soon. But it's very definitely 'of interest' to anyone with a penchant for smartphones in general. Google's 'Project Ara' is looking to create a genuinely modular smartphone, in which you can swap around modules to a certain degree. Better camera, better speakers, even adding a QWERTY keyboard. Sounds unlikely, but see the image, quote and link below, etc.

  • Off-the-grid entertainment with DVB-T on a Windows 8 Tablet.

    Chippy
    11 Apr 2014 | 12:00 am
    For cheap, off-the-grid entertainment, OTA digital TV is the only way to get live information onto a tablet. I took a DVB-T receiver from Terratec, installed the driver and the TV software along with a codec pack on a Dell Venue 8 Pro and it’s working very well. According to tests, one charge should run for the full length of a footballl game, including extra time and penalties. It’s perfect for the up-coming World Cup! I’m using the DVB-T standard Terratec Cinergy DT USB XS which is a USB-connected receiver and from the image above you can see it has two antennas. It’s connected via…
  • Acer Aspire Switch SW5 shows-up at reseller.

    It’s a brave reseller that breaks what we assume would be an NDA in order to gain the SEO advantage so hats-off to Brack in Switzerland who give us the first real detail about the Acer Aspire Switch SW5. This Baytrail-T based 2-in-1 is clearly on the production line and looks to be the upgrade to the W510 that we had running on Clovertrail last year. First the bad news. 1366×768 is the given display resolution. It’s probably right too as the price is, for 64GB storage, a very very cheap 370 Euros; 50 euros cheaper than the ASUS Transformer Book T100. Acer may have taken a look at the…

    Miix 2 8 and Miix 2 10, Thinkpad 8 and Thinkpad 10. It makes sense, right? The Thinkpad 10 is due to launch next month if the news is correct. Expect something to challenge the HP Elitepad 1000 and Fujitsu Q584 and something that could have all the great qualities we’ve already seen on the Thinkpad 8 but with more processing power, more RAM, an optional keyboard and a lot of business options. Yes, pricing is going to be on the high side but if they can engineer something lighter than the competition, this could be the one. The Lenovo Thinkpad 10 news comes via Tabtech.de who have picked the…

    In our fifth 8-inch Windows Tablet review we’re taking a look at the Acer Iconia W4. Acer were the first to bring an 8-inch Windows 8 tablet to the market but the W3 really wasn’t at all an impressive device. The W4, however, looks a whole lot better and performs a whole lot better thanks to the upgrade from Clovertrail to Baytrail. We’ve also got 3G on board which makes it one of the first 8-inch Windows tablets to have the feature. Read-on for the full Acer Iconia W4-821P 3G 32GB review.

    Vlad Bobleanta
    18 Apr 2014 | 7:36 am
    Many Android-powered smartphones see hefty discounts at third-party retailers, some even days after they launch. It’s not unusual to find such a company selling an Android device for half of what carriers are asking for it. But things are and always have been different when it comes to iPhones. They’re usually not ever seen on sale at anything other than the recommended price – which, for the current flagship, is $199.99 with a two-year contract. Sometimes certain retailers such as Walmart take that price around $10 down, but that’s mostly it. So you should be…

However, that doesn’t mean that all the carriers in those countries started selling the Korean company’s “next big thing” on that day. The rollout is still happening as you read this, and the latest carrier to offer the Galaxy S5 is MetroPCS. If you wanted to buy a Galaxy S5 from MetroPCS, you did have to wait an extra week but it’s finally here now.

    The Motorola Droid Maxx may not be the newest smartphone around, nor the highest-end, but nevertheless Verizon has decided to refresh it somewhat. You can now buy the Droid Maxx in two new colors. One of them is called High Gloss Red, and the other is Black with Chrome Accents. Once you’ve seen them, you’ll undoubtedly understand why those names were chosen. Under the hood, the specs are the same the black Droid Maxx launched with last year, save for one important difference – the new models only have 16 GB of storage space, half of what the original model still comes with.

    Following in the footsteps of the models sold by T-Mobile and Sprint, the LG G2 for Verizon now has the update to Android 4.4 KitKat available. There’s a catch, however. It doesn’t look like the update has been pushed through to the over-the-air system, at least not yet. That means you shouldn’t expect your phone to notify you that the update is out – it simply won’t know. The only way to get your hands on the new software, at least for now, is to use Verizon’s Software Upgrade Assistant, a piece of desktop software that only works on Windows. As you might…
  • Next Google Nexus smartphone may be powered by MediaTek

    File this one under “crazier things have happened in the mobile world”, will you? The latest rumor originating in China says Google will choose MediaTek as the chipset supplier for the next Nexus smartphone. Now that may seem unlikely given how much everyone uses Qualcomm chips these days, but remember that Google did turn to TI for the processor in the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. MediaTek is the up-and-coming mobile chipset maker, so Google looking its way certainly makes a certain degree of sense. If this does happen, perhaps Google will also persuade the Taiwanese company to release…

    Recently, TechCrunch wrote an analysis/commentary about the growing concern with Facebook’s page reach. The article, “Why Is Facebook Page Reach Decreasing? More Competition And Limited Attention,” identifies a decline in the value of Facebook fans as a function of the amount of content posted to the social network. To paraphrase the article, the decrease in organic reach is natural and, in fact, unavoidable. EdgeRank Checker analyzed 50,000 posts from 1,000 Pages and revealed that Facebook organic reach has actually been on a steady decline for the past two years: Simply stated,…

    If you want to have prepaid, or pay-as-you-go minutes or date on Sprint while using an iPhone, there are two plans that you can select through the company. Of course, the best part of pay-as-you-go phones is that they do not require annual contracts. This is always a plus if you move, or have a circumstance where you have to switch plans immediately. There is nothing worse than moving to a new area where you get terrible coverage but are stuck with a two year contract that you just signed. Prepaid minutes allow you to get a feel for the coverage in your area, without having the headache of an…

    16 Apr 2014 | 11:17 am
    We are turning a corner in the rocky relationship between retail and mobile.  At first there was disdain as retailers looked at mobile as the web's ugly little child. Not worth the effort to invest in, not worthy of the brand stamp, not a threat. Just. Simply. Not. Then the fear and confusion arose as upstarts and digital-only retailers promptly handed traditional retail a world of pain and discomfort. Showrooming emerged as a term at the expense of those that ignored the threat so prominently displayed by early mobile adopters. Now, a somewhat calmer world where retailers, scared, scarred…

    There are scores of items in an average household that require a regular supply of electricity for their function, while others need to be charged regularly, such as notebooks, cell phones, tablets, mp 3 players, electric tooth brushes and trimmers.

    The mobile phone market is saturated and the choice can be quite overwhelming. It might be quite tempting to buy the phone all your friends are using, or the one that looks the coolest. Stepping back and making the decision based on your own needs, though, pays off in the long term because a phone that works with your lifestyle becomes a useful tool, rather than a shiny accessory. Smart or Basic? Many of us assume that we should just get the best phone we can afford, and for most that means a smartphone. As the clever people at How Stuff Works point out, though, out it’s worth being…

    I carry a black rectangle for a phone, and for the past year I carried it without a case because I like the sleek design and the simple statement it reflects. It wasn’t until recently, after I dropped it and my screen created a spider web of shattered glass, that I broke down and purchased a case. There are really only a few things that I am a stickler about when it comes to fashion: I prefer a certain type sweater to wear to the office, and I can’t leave the house if my running shoes do not match my workout gear. Where I am going with this?  It’s BYOD. BYOD is one of the most…

    Have you ever had a mobile phone number in your text message campaign, where every time you send them a text message, the message bounces? Why does this happen? If a text message bounces once and awhile to a subscriber, it’s usually not an issue, as this most likely means the subscriber is out of range of their wireless network, or maybe they don’t have any text messaging credits left on their current billing cycle. While an occasional bounce for a specific phone number is normal, repetitive bounces usually signify that the mobile phone number is no longer active, meaning that…

  • Will Apple ever use NFC chips?

    Every new iPhone is speculated to finally come out with NFC, but so far every time it has disappointed many. Why? Why would Apple ignore NFC? In case you are not familiar with NFC, it stands for near field communication, and simply allows devices, and other NFC chips to interact with each other. It is most beneficial with mobile payments. Apple recently filled a patent that combines iWallet and NFC, so could we see NFC in the new iPhone 6? Who knows, but many do not have high hopes. Apple said it did not include NFC to the iPhone 5 because they say the Passbook does what consumers already…

    Mobile SEO differs from traditional desktop SEO. Your google ranking on mobile will not be the same as it is on desktop, Google has mobile bots that detect how mobile friendly your site is, and ranks it accordingly. So here are 3 things you must do to increase your mobile SEO. 1. Mobile site? Is your site optimized for mobile phones? This is priority #1, your site must be mobile friendly, or Google will ignore it, and put your sites ranking below the mobile friendly sites. 2.

This is a shocker, since everyone is talking about how important it is to not only go mobile but get responsive websites. The studies here don’t prove responsive websites are bad, but it does provide evidence that responsive sites simply behave much like desktop sites, and do not increase conversions on mobile devices.

What surprised me most was that, rather than featuring an announcement about the acquisition, it had a blog post that boldly proclaimed: “We don’t sell ads.” This post, written by co-founder Jan Koam, rides high on a self-congratulatory victory lap of a company fighting against the evils of personal information collection and unwanted advertising. However, this is in stark contrast to the fact that they just sold themselves to one of the biggest…

A recent survey by cloud service monitor company Skyhigh found that it is significantly higher than most suspect. As Nancy Gohring explained the findings, “On average [Skyhigh] customers use 545 cloud services. That’s a far cry from the 40 or 50 apps that most CIOs…think their employees use.” These cloud services with their native apps represent the frontier of the consumerization of IT where employees, emboldened…

Even when the programming exercise involves their beloved Minecraft (I will have a blog post on that adventure coming).

We used to live this at HP, and especially in the printer buisness where most of the economics were not in the "placement of the socket" but instead in the number of pages printed after the "install" (and therefore the amount of ink consumed). It is why HP smoked Lexmark and has held the lion's share of the economics despite pressure from Epson and Canon in inkjet printing. Whereas analysts worry about socket marketshare…

  • Customer Spotlight: Zoho Wins the CRM Battle and Helps Company Scale Up

    10 Apr 2014 | 7:23 pm
    “It came down to Zoho or Salesforce, and ultimately I know I made the right decision” Four years ago, John Hood’s company, The Farm, was looking into finding a permanent CRM solution because the internal database they were using was “simply not cutting it and was ultimately hampering some of our sales efforts.” Hood explored a myriad of CRM solutions including Sugar, Goldmine, Salesforce, and Zoho. After a thorough exploration into CRM solutions, Hood made a decision on a CRM to go with, and hasn’t looked back since… The Business The Farm is a Professional Manufacturers’…

  • The Real Challenge for Project Ara

    Sameer Singh
    17 Apr 2014 | 6:30 am
    This week, Google held the first developer conference for Project Ara, their initiative to develop a truly modular smartphone. As with any potentially disruptive product, traditional analysts have been skeptical because of the trade-offs in size, weight and power consumption. The flaw with this line of thinking is that it focuses too heavily on high-end customers and today's smartphone users -- most critiques of disruption theory in consumer contexts suffer from the same flaw. In reality, a shift in the basis of competition and, consequently, business model innovation often takes root among…
  • Facebook, Whatsapp and Mobile Payments

    Sameer Singh
    15 Apr 2014 | 6:30 am
    According to recent reports, Facebook is in the early stages of building an electronic payments service. The rumored focus on emerging markets suggests that this service may have a tie-in with Whatsapp. More importantly, an e-payment service could meet one of two possible goals with respect to Facebook's (or Whatsapp's) business model.Facebook's current, advertising-based revenue model relies on access to -- (1) engaged users, (2) advertisers, and (3) customer data to improve targeting. In contrast, Whatsapp as a product does not currently generate meaningful revenue (subscriptions are not…
  • Google Glass: Finding Non-Consumers

    Sameer Singh
    10 Apr 2014 | 6:30 am
    In my last post on "field-of-vision" tech, I hypothesized that these products were unlikely to be "good enough" for mainstream usage for at least five years. Initially, their success will not depend on mainstream appeal, but on their value to a certain niche of "non-consumers". The traction seen by Google Glass in sectors like medicine seems to be consistent with this pattern.The hallmark of a new market disruption is that it initially appeals to a niche customer base because of unique attributes that no other product category can offer. This occurs despite its sub-par performance on…
  • Messaging Apps: The Case Against a Tech Bubble

    Sameer Singh
    7 Apr 2014 | 6:16 am
    In 1998 AOL paid $287 million to acquire ICQ, a pre-revenue instant messaging (IM) client with a "massive" base of 12 million users. In just three years ICQ's user base grew to 100 million, but it never seemed to take off as a business. Over the past few months, some observers have drawn parallels between the valuations drawn by dot-com era products like ICQ and smartphone messaging apps -- Whatsapp's $19 billion valuation is usually part of the argument. In reality, there are major differences between the dot-com bubble and what we see today.Let's begin with the obvious -- the chart at…
  • Fire TV: Business Model Motivations

    Sameer Singh
    3 Apr 2014 | 6:30 am
    23% - That figure alone explains Amazon's goal for Fire TV. In 2013, it was estimated that the Kindle ecosystem was responsible for 11% of Amazon's revenue, but 23% of its operating profit. However, the revenue numbers also include $4.5 billion in Kindle device sales (6% of Amazon's revenue) which were sold at break-even. This means that 23% of Amazon's operating profit came from a business that accounted for just 5% of its annual revenue.Given the figures above, it is no surprise to see Amazon double down on its "razors and blades" strategy. By selling a low-cost ($99) box to consumers,…

Time was, Apple’s iPad was the sexiest tablet around by miles. Chunky plastic Android wannabes just couldn’t come close for design, but then Sony’s Xperia Tablet Z turned up and made a nation of tech lovers weep with joy. Here was a stunning and unbelievably thin 10.1-inch tab, rocking the same sexy glass build of the Sony Xperia smartphones. We’re not surprised Sony hasn’t messed too much with design for the Xperia Z2…

    19 Jun 2013 | 9:14 pm
    Every WWDC, it’s the same thing: rumors spread ahead of time and then everybody has an opinion on what a failure/success it is for Apple. For app developers, it’s always interesting to take a look into the future of iOS and how it could impact their lives and businesses. Because each change on Apple’s side is likely to bring new challenges. And new opportunities. That why we like to take a look at how it impacts app developers and mobile app companies, like we did with iOS 6 and its new App Store.

  • Buyer Beware in Mobile Apps – A Disturbing Trend

    Chad Jones

    We have seen a disturbing trend recently in mobile app development we wanted to comment on. There have been more what we would call “pretenders” entering the market. There have always been “pretenders”. Sometimes the “pretenders” don’t even know they are “pretenders”. But we see it more now than in the past so we want to bring it to people’s attention. Sometimes a customer will talk with us first before they talk to the “pretenders” and sometimes they will only come to us after. Let me describe the version when they talk…
  • Getting your users to create your app content: Getting started

    Andre Doucette
    17 Apr 2014 | 7:00 am
    Last week, I wrote about a special kind of content consumption app where developers could, in essence, trick users into creating content for others to consume, thereby reducing the creation stress on developers. This week, I want to expand on this idea by describing some strategies apps can use to get users started in the first place. There is a chicken-and-egg problem for user generated content apps: people are unlikely to want to create content for platforms with no users, and platforms won’t have any users if they don’t have any content. In my last post, I described why GasBuddy is my…

    Andre Doucette
    11 Apr 2014 | 7:00 am
    As my PhD supervisor, Carl Gutwin, says: “Ideas are cheap. Good ideas are hard”. Through my years designing mobile apps, I’ve thought hard about what it takes to make a compelling app. What, exactly, makes an app a hit? This is, of course, a loaded question. Apps that fulfill a real human need are easier than those that are just entertainment. For example, productivity apps solve real human needs: people need to track expenses, so spreadsheets; people want to make their photos awesome, so Photoshop; people need to manage their huge inboxes, so Mailbox. When an app is for content…

  • Daily Dose of iQ: Pioneer to Sell Aftermarket CarPlay Stereos

    Collin Prior

This is nice development for people who already own cars (without CarPlay) but want to install CarPlay. Engadget posted a detailed video (over 8 minutes long) showing a hands-on with the Pioneer interface on a Ferrari. Ferrari was one of the initial car manufacturers announced to be implementing CarPlay last month. Allowing third parties to make CarPlay hardware is atypical of Apple.

    Microsoft plans on offering Windows licenses for free to manufacturing partners who install the operating system on devices with screens smaller than nine inches. This is a wholesale shredding of the company’s traditional playbook, which dictated that all Microsoft software come with a licensing fee of some sort, and it suggests the danger that Google Android and Apple’s iOS pose to Windows’ traditional dominance of the operating-system space. To wit: a few years ago, the PC sat at the center of everybody’s computing lives—and Windows handily dominated the PC, at least with regard…

    “I’d like to order 10 pizzas”. “We have dough just for 5 pizzas, so we are gonna send you 5 pizzas plus a bunch of private data about other users that ordered pizza tonight”. This is, in a very simplified way, the flaw behind Heartbleed. XKCD explained it even better, in slightly more technical way. In my opinion the bug (which was introduced in this commit if you are interested) is not simply due to the code. Sure, as suggested in this advisory, the way to fix it is to change the code by implementing a bound check, but what I see it as a design flaw in the API.

    20 Mar 2014 | 2:48 am
    Right after my latest post on naming methods with blocks my friend Murray asked for some feedback on the names for his collection of macros. Without even blinking I suggested ALL_CAPS, having in mind mostly the following macro by Apple UI_USER_INTERFACE_IDIOM() I think it’s pretty ugly to read but I guess it’s meant call out the fact it’s a macro. If you check UIDevice.h though, you’ll find the following: #define UI_USER_INTERFACE_IDIOM() ... #define UIDeviceOrientationIsPortrait(orientation) ... #define UIDeviceOrientationIsLandscape(orientation) ... WTH? The first is…
  • On naming methods with blocks

    Cesare Rocchi
    17 Mar 2014 | 5:35 am
    Recently I have been very busy with the implementation of the BaasBox SDK for iOS and I had to come up with lots of method signatures. It’s 2014 and we all love blocks, so I used them quite extensively. When consolidating the upcoming version I noticed I wasn’t consistent with the naming. Some method was like this: -(void) loadCurrentUserWithCompletion:(BAAObjectResultBlock)completion; and some other was like this: - (void) updateUserWithCompletion:(BAAObjectResultBlock)completionBlock; Notice the different naming for the last part, the name of the parameter. Sometimes I even used…
  • Detecting Screen Brightness in iOS

    Cesare Rocchi
    10 Feb 2014 | 2:30 am
    I am a huge fan of small libraries that do just one thing but well. Sure you can detect when screen brightness changes by listening to the UIScreenBrightnessDidChangeNotification, but ASCScreenBrightnessDetector by aschndr is the right sugar on top of that. All you need is to create an instance, set a delegate and implement the - (void)screenBrightnessDidChange:(CGFloat)brightness; method, like this. If you are already using Cocoapods, including it is a breeze. I am gonna use it in Neater.

  • 25 Top iOS Apps And Their Version Update Frequencies

    15 Apr 2014 | 7:29 pm
    One question that we see occasionally when roaming app development forums, Q&A sites and other blogs is: “How often should I update my app?” Of course there is no one set answer. The frequency at which a developer updates will depend on a variety of different factors. App complexity, availability of programming resources, bug urgency and keyword update testing will all figure into how often updates are released. But let’s take a look at the Top 25 apps on our Leaderboard and find out what the top apps are doing. Since our Leaderboard only ranks iOS apps at the moment,…

    Robert Pirozzi
    31 Mar 2014 | 10:00 am
    No warranties. No recommendations. No Reviews. The standard “mileage may vary” disclaimer. This is simply, as the title would imply, a big list of responsive frameworks and responsive boilerplates to help you as you search for the “perfect” framework or boilerplate for your next project. Perhaps the biggest advantage of working with a framework is that it can significantly speed up the process of creating a responsive website. One of the biggest knocks against frameworks is that all of the sites created with a given framework have a tendency to look very similar – unless, of course,…

    Robert Pirozzi
    25 Mar 2014 | 6:53 am
    We’re often asked to make breakpoint recommendations for responsive website designs, and many individuals are looking for “standard” sizes for the various devices out there. Here’s the problem – there are no “standard” sizes. With a proliferation of screen sizes – not to mention the advent of wearables – there are just too many permutations for anything to be considered “standard”. So what’s the correct response to “Where should my breakpoints be?” Well, it depends. But don’t fret, something approaching consensus for setting responsive breakpoints is emerging…

    I don’t know about you, but if you have spent more than 10 minutes looking at the mobile “landscape,” you are probably as confused as I am. In fact, I think it looks more like a jungle than a landscape. New mobile technologies, coupled with the way we interact and consume information, have led to new expectations of what we want out of our mobile devices (can you say “Angry Birds”). Gone are the days when phones were used strictly for calling. Today, our phones let us work from anywhere, show us what our friends and families are up to, play games, enhance our productivity, and much…

  • Your Starbucks is Leaking (Your Mobile Data) – Why It Didn’t Need to Happen

    Steven Levy
    23 Jan 2014 | 10:00 am
    When it came out that Starbuck’s mobile payment app was storing user’s personal information – including passwords – in clear text, executives at the Seattle-based company were shockingly unsurprised! Their rationale – the risk of extensive loss was low, so they chose convenience over security. This is horribly wrong on two counts: First, the risk is only low if you consider the loss to be limited to purchases at Starbucks made through the app. What this completely overlooks is that most people use the same password for a variety of accounts. It would be natural to assume that a…

    1 Apr 2014 | 7:30 pm
    Hey all, Over my years doing this, I’ve found that the technology news industry is unnecessarily saturated. There are too many people covering Apple and Samsung! That’s why today, we’re switching to a new niche. From now on, The App Store Chronicle will be exclusively covering North Korean technology. You may be wondering “Why”? Well, I’ll tell ya. North Korean tech is growing fast. By last year, they had successfully cloned Mac OSX for their own purposes, and this year, they released their first smartphone. It’s like covering Apple in 2007! There’s so much exciting technology…

    More text message marketing subscribers may not be what you want, although not necessarily  what you need. If the response rate to the messages that you are sending out is not at a peak number, rather than focusing on getting more people on  your list, put your focus on getting more engagement from those who are already there. Learning what the response rate that you are receiving is very simple to do. For every 1,000 text messages sent out, 10 people represent 1% of that number. Just 10 sales could cause a profit of $100 and oftentimes more. But, what if you could get 20 people to respond…

  • Long Codes & Text Marketing

    admin
    6 Apr 2014 | 8:31 am
    If you’re considering using long codes with your text marketing efforts, you might want to think again. Currently long codes are not authorized by any carrier within the U.S. for marketing purposes. Although you may have heard about their use in the international market, taking that to the states can have multiple consequences. The biggest risk with the long code is that it can generate unsolicited text messages, generated through unauthorized access from the carrier. Unauthorized messages can lead to big trouble. It is a violation to send unauthorized text messages to any cell phone,…

    They say that the rising tide floats all ships.  What about a tidal wave?  Many people are dumbfounded at the valuations that app companies are receiving, especially in the messaging world, but looking back at history can provide some perspective.  Messaging has been hot for a while, starting with AOL in the 90s, then platforms were developed that integrated the many messaging solutions. Microsoft bought Skype for $8.5 billion in 2011, and although that wasn’t an app deal, it set the tone.  Facebook then bought Instagram for $1 billion in 2012; the biggest app deal to date, and it…

In other words, your prototype needs to be fully functional and complete with graphics and transitions. In order to sell the…

Ting is a MVNO that utilizes only Sprint’s bandwidth, but you have to know from the start that just the black version is in stock right now. And the orders will ship by May 5th and no sooner, but despite all these inconveniences, we still think that ay $597 unlocked, the Galaxy S5 is a great deal that you should take into consideration.

    As you can see from the title, Samsung’s plans are not at all modest: the company is expecting to ship 35 million Galaxy S5s in Q2, as a result of the strong sales achieved by this smartphone during its worldwide launch. As we have told you, Galaxy S5 is available in 125 countries worldwide, the company mentioning that we are talking about amazing sales since its launch day. News about no less than 200 sales in the first hour at the Paris Samsung Store and around 700 sales in Rotterdam in Galaxy’s S5 launch day sound indeed very promising, but the idea of 35 million Galaxy S5s to ship in…

    We want to tell you from the start that you’ll be surprised to find out how much Galaxy S5 really costs. The cost of its components “has been drifting upward on Samsung phones in recent months”, as it has officially confirmed Andrew Rassweiler, an analyst from IHS’ research company. He also stated: “Our main takeaway is that Samsung has been moved up to the higher end of the cost spectrum. It used to be that its typical flagship phone sold for $600 without a contract and had a bill of materials of about $200,” but this time their latest Galaxy S5 has reached to a costs of about…

    Here we are with fresh details about the latest installment in the Apple Samsung trial. Samsung America’s marketing chief Todd Pendleton was in witness stand in order to prove once for all that the Korean company did not copy any iPhone features. He has declared that “People knew Samsung for televisions. But in terms of smartphones, there was no recognition for what our product was or what it stood for”, making it clear that their concept was unique and had nothing to do with Apple. In fact, he has stated that Samsung had a better mobile device than what Apple was offering with its…

    Karen Webster, CEO of Market Platform Dynamics has written some outstanding articles in the payments industry. Below is one of her articles we wanted to share with you on retailers moving to mobile commerce. Click here for the original story In the classic story, The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy, Toto and the Tin Man are happily skipping along the Yellow Brick Road on their way to find said Wizard when they come upon a forest. Dorothy asks the forest whether there are scary animals living there and since this is a make believe story, the trees tell her that there are probably lots of lions and…
  • The spinny wheel effect

    You’re thinking of closing this tab already. I didn’t give you a juicy stat in my opening sentence. I haven’t given you anything useful yet and we’re already 28 words in. Who has time for this nonsense? You’ve lost interest. You’re gone. Still here? You’re one of the few: 57% of mobile customers will abandon your app or site if they have to wait 3 seconds for a page to load. 74% will abandon after five seconds. Every 100ms increase in load time decreases sales by 1%. As far as your conversion rate goes, this really is the spinny wheel of death: It’s no coincidence that the…

    The rapid growth of mobile as a first channel for commerce offers challenges and opportunities for accepting payments. The potential for fraud on mobile is high, so what can you do to manage risk? 1. As we increasingly utilise mobile for so much of our everyday activities, consumers and merchants alike need to be aware of what has changed and what that means for the potential of fraud. Consumers clearly want to buy on mobile but they need assurances that their money is protected.
