With their latest prime model the Galaxy S IV Samsung according to some reports continued the “de-googleing” of the Android platform by replacing some key Google services with their own.
Now where does this lead?
Facebook wants it and Google+ does as well. They want you to use your real name for your account with understandable reasonings. Just as understandable as are the reasons users have to not oblige.
It could just work though..
Within the publishing industry that I work in as well as many others management seems to envision a bright future getting their brands and products onto smartphones and tablets. Many digital strategies revolve around the web, mobile and tablets.
Chances are these strategies fall short.
End of 2011 I have made some predictions about 2012 and since 2013 has already started it might be a good idea to review those and see what actually turned out and what didn’t.
6 out of 10 is not too bad right?
Over the past few days I have been spending some free time to put up a new blog for a friend of mine who want to start a new business. Because having just a blog isn’t enough infrastructure I setup a few Google Apps as well.
I was surprised how well integrated everything feels by now.
The Amazon Kindle Fire seems to be a success. Apparently it makes up about 50% of all android installations according to some reports. Nowadays it seems as there’s a decline.
And I can imagine the reasons why..
When I wrote down my predictions for 2012 one of the things I anticipated was Facebook creating an ad network to serve social ads off of Facebook on other websites.
Apparently preparations seem to be getting final.
Google announced to roll out its new so called knowledge graph the center stone of its things, not strings initiative. Will this establish their search application even more in the market?
I guess so.
Just read two interesting articles that I’d like to share. The first is from Eric Jackson on Forbes.com about Google and Facebook might be disappearing within the next 5 years. The second is Ian Luries reply on Allthingsd.com arguing that Google is here to stay.
We have seen big names disappear over the last decades. Netscape and AOL to name a few. So why should Google e save from that?
