Facebook: You Still Can Judge Them by Their Cover

May 14, 2012

So if you want to be excited by Facebook they are going to take a page of GoogleAds and make a Facebook network of ads outside of their site.

So now not only will I feel violated by their ability to be my security login with other sites, but I will be paranoid about the ads that pop up while i am on other sites.

This stock is going to launch and I am going to having something more to kvetch about to a world in love with the experience.

Derrick Harris of Gigaom touches the subject very handily, but at the end of the day, I feel we are off topic.  

The Yahooligans at the Gate

May 14, 2012

Well,  so much for Scott Thompson, reign at Yahoo!.  He over saw the stock rising and announced layoffs.  So as recent CEO's go his vision was perfect.  In fact he ended up getting himself and five members of the board layed off as well.  

Android & Chrome and Somewhere in Between

April 20, 2012

I have a rough time considering myself press or an analyst.  On the Press side I have been trained to always consider a press release as a strategy and not news.  On the analyst side, my perfectionism comes in and I would want more opinions before I share mine.

I find that particularly true when people become very linear, like the way that our friends in the news have picked up on people abandoning Android for development.

China Mobile in Flux

March 22, 2012

The worlds largest Mobile Operator seems to be going through a major purge, with police investigations and executive resignations.  I am not sure what to make of it.

I find China Mobile a major wild card in the world market since they are committed to TD LTE and have been assisting other players around the world to follow them.

I am not sure if this a pull back on that policy or an internal issue.  The new chairman Xi Guohua is a loyal party member and this could be more about the local structure than the Internationalizing of China standards.

I have had discussions with brillant financial friends who have discounted my thoughts about the impact of chinese standards on the rest of us.  However the reality is that Huawei is delivering solutons cheaper to the current carriers and China Mobile is delivering services in mass to the point where they are a market. 





OMGPOP Gets Some Zynga

March 22, 2012

Here is an interesting news.  Zynga bought OMGPOP for its latest game according to the NY Times.  The issue for Zynga is that its not having as much success as it has had in Social networks.  That maybe because their model requires a commitment to gaming that is hard to sustain.

I played Cityville to the point where my town was a drain on time. 

The Enemy with SIM

Today, I am in Rome.  And when you are in Rome... I try to read like the Romans do.  In this case Telecom Italia has proven once again that the enemy is within.

Avaya Buys Radvision for $230 Million

March 15, 2012

Silver Lake has the golden touch?  Having helped Skype become a stand alone entity,  It has been interesting and confusing from time to time to watch Avaya under its care.

I expected Avaya was going to benefit from portfolio proximity of Skype, but it never happened.

Since then Cisco has bought Tanberg leaving Radvision's role as a subcontractor dubious.

With Avaya gaining the skills of our friends at Radvision,  I think the migration to Video and the improvement of their SIP stack can be assured.

Additionally it opens up a huge opportunity to work with third parties in new ways.  Since for many of us Radvision has been the basis of our development. 

Mergers often require insight, beyond the immediate upfront strategy.

I think there is a gold mine here if Silver Lake manages it well.
