Mobile News From iPhone to Business Intelligence

November 8, 2007

The mobile market continues to generate massive amounts of news… It almost seems we have crossed over the critical mass border where everyone on earth has one of these devices and now we need to find ways o force them to upgrade or provide them better access to information while on the road.   For example, Information Builders now provides a mobile-ready business intelligence dashboard. With merely a couple of clicks, content can be effortlessly added or eliminated from the Mobile Favorites folder in Information Builders’ standard BI Dashboard. The procedure closely resembles the method for adding content to the favorites folder in a Web browser.   In addition, Broadcom and Electronic Arts have teamed up to provide high-performance gaming on mobile phones. A direct quote from the release is as follows: “The Broadcom BCM2727 processor continues to set the bar for low power, extreme mobile multimedia performance and is receiving significant recognition within the mobile device and gaming communities.”   For those of you who already have a device – like let’s say a smartphone, you can now turn it into an iPhone with a little help from TransMedia.

Picketing Steve Jobs

November 7, 2007

Apparently the proper place for striking writers to be picketing is in front of Steve Job’s house, office and perhaps anywhere else he happens to be. So says Michael Eisner according to this CNET news report.   In reality, Steve Jobs should more likely be heralded as a god as without him the content the writers produce would be distributed free through p2p networks and there would be no money to be made. At least now the studios get something that will grow over time.   Having said that we should all acknowledge that iTunes is not needed for distribution of all content. The networks have websites that make a successful business distributing programming without any help from Apple at all – Thank you very much.

Quantcast

November 6, 2007

You are likely familiar with Alexa, a division of Amazon that measures website traffic. I have written about the site a number of times before. A while back I discovered a site called Quantcast which is becoming a well respected third-party way to measure web traffic in an accurate manner. Currently Quantcast allows you to see how many unique visitors any site has.

Apple Tablet PC

November 6, 2007

Think of it as an iPhone but with more of it to love.   Sure you love your iPhone, iPod and other Apple devices but something is missing. You want a single device which gives you the power of the MacBook with the portability of an iPhone but you just don’t know where to turn. Perhaps you could buy an iPhone and iPod and put one in each hand. Or you could use a laptop while you use your iPhone.   If only – if only, Apple was working on a Tablet PC – something with the power of an iPhone – the great and intuitive interface, coupled with a powerful dual-core processor and a huge screen, allowing web browsing of the most sophisticated pages with ease.   Wouldn’t it just be nifty?

More Google Phone Speculation

Open Handset Alliance and More

November 5, 2007

Another week and other massive avalanche of news in the communications space. The first item worth sharing is regarding Google shaking up the foundation of the mobile phone market. The funny thing is, editors and bloggers have been looking to find the Google phone for months and instead of it being somewhere, it will be everywhere.   If you missed it the company has launched an Open Handset Alliance which aims to open things up in the cellular communications space. Specifically the alliance is a total of over 30 companies working together to produce low-cost phones whose development is supported by advertising.
