Pandora Competes Handily With Satellite Radio

November 9, 2007

In the past I have written about not allowing the XM/Sirius satellite merger take place. I figured it would be bad for consumers. However a single website changed my mind a few months back. That website is actually a streaming radio station which allows you to play the customized music you like.

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.

Ditech Networks

In the many IP communications demos I hear each year I am consistently amazed at just how good the quality of VoIP can be. With today’s wideband codecs the sound is remarkably better than the PSTN. This is especially true when I listen to 3D stereo VoIP.   The first issue of Internet Telephony magazine which was the first publication in the world focusing on IP communications came out in February, 1998 and in all the years since we have seen the IP communications space explode with growth. Sure there have been ups and downs but we can safely say at this point the technology behind internet telephony has changed the world for the better.   But this does not mean every VoIP call today sounds fantastic.

Symbian CEO Disses Open Handset Alliance

November 8, 2007

Symbian may be the closest competitor to Google’s Open Handset Alliance and not surprisingly the head of Symbian had nothing flattering to say about this latest open source mobile handset initiative.   Symbian’s CEO Nigel Clifford said, There's 10, 15, 20, maybe 25 different Linux platforms out there. It sometimes appears that Linux is fragmenting faster than it unifies." He continued, “Symbian recognizes Google's commitment to ‘openness’ and sees that as a good thing, but I probably would say there is no such thing as free software."   The problem for Clifford and company is the fact that many companies already working with Symbian have become part of the OHA. What this means for Symbian long term is unknown but the competition has not put a dent in Clifford’s resolve as he said, “We're the market leader, and we aim to remain the market leader."   For more, check out this well-written piece from InfoWorld.
