Google’s Free Mobile Phone Software

November 5, 2007

Can Google pull it Off -- is the question worth asking when realizing the search leader is looking to open up the mobile phone industry. The cellular market is legendary in its ability to lock in customers. In the US the phones are subsidized and locked. In Europe the phones are unlocked but when you go from country to country your rates skyrocket.   In the US the situation is even more interesting as carriers typically cripple devices making them less useful.

In the world of advertising the expression commonly used is “perception is reality.” Moreover companies are often branded by customers. If I say IBM, you will say mainframes. Oracle? Databases.   Sometimes I feel it is my job to help uncover companies who have a broader portfolio of products than is generally appreciated.

NBA on your Cell

November 2, 2007

Say you are in a meeting – like the one I am in now (shh! ), and you feel you are out of the basketball loop… What do you do? Well one option is to take out your cell phone and hide it under the table and tune to Verizon Wireless V CAST Mobile TV.   There are more than 70 games you could be watching under the table, right now!   If there is a downside, it is that you can only access the service in 40 cities including some of the larger ones, Atlanta, Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York and Philadelphia.   The question worth asking of course is why Vegas… Every time I go to a Vegas hotel, there seem to be more flat screen TVs with basketball games than even Best Buy! I guess Vegas citizens don’t want to miss these important games when they are in the rest room.
