apps vs web page 29 -12-2012

The app vs web page battle rages, yet the future belongs to HTML 5. Not only is HTML 5 mobile friendly, it also helps businesses create better engagement.  

A web browser displays HTML, PHP and other scripting languages on your computer in a way a person can understand so they are not looking at a bunch of code. Back when browsers were still young, they were hardly good enough to display HTML properly. Today’s web browsers are capable of much more than showing simple text and images. Today’s browsers can display and execute complex code (such as HTML 5) and even run applications within the browser (Facebook is a case in point). With the power of HTML 5, modern web browsers are capable of running apps within the browser with no additional support either from hardware or from the compiler. The days of a simple web page are gone; the app vs web battle was over before it had even begun.

Facts About Google: What You Probably Don’t Know
Everyone knows Google. The largest empire on the web; having not only dominated the web market, they pretty much created it. Starting out as nothing more than an innovative algorithm to battle the lacking search engines of the early days of the mainstream Internet, Google quickly exploded. Their revenue jumped, and suddenly they were making improvements and churning out new projects like no tomorrow. If you believe the paranoid (and possibly correct) privacy advocates, it won’t be long before Google takes over the world. Or something like that.

Spotify, amongst many other interesting startups to have popped up over the last decade, reinvented the music industry; giving us access to whatever track we want –whenever and wherever we want it.

It all started with Napster, which let students exchange music collections without having to carry tapes or CDs. In short order, Napster revolutionized the world of music. Anyone with the Napster app could download music through peer-to-peer technology without having to pay a thing. Labels got worried and lawsuits ensued; the result was a Supreme Court against the company in favor of record labels. Napster evolved, however, not everyone was pleased. In fact, many argued that the company was a great service for music, promoting national artists internationally and helping people share music with each other (after all, it was for the common good!). Although the technology caused problems for recording studios with declining CD sales, it continued to benefit ‘music’ in more ways than one.

If we were to rank the Cloud Computing acronyms (SaaS, PaaS, DaaS, and IaaS) in terms of people’s familiarity with them, Infrastructure-as-a-Service would probably come up dead last.

Sephora single-point-of-sale done wirelessly, using an iPhone.

My Anastasia Brow products (fav!) needed a refresh, so I took a power-walk up to the Sephora store on 57th and Lexington today. I did a little shopping and one of the sales reps came over asking if I needed any help.  I let her know I was okay (I know my way around a Sephora store!), so she asked if I was by chance ready to check out –I was.  Expecting she would ask me to walk over to the register, I was surprised when she pulled out her iPhone to check me out!

The most important thing to carriers besides subscribers is mobile spectrum; but by next year, according to CNN Money, the FCC could experience what is known as a “Spectrum Crunch” where there will be no more airwaves to pass around. This comes at a time where mobile carriers need spectrum the most as data hogging smartphones, such as the Apple iPhone, use up all their spectrum. If carriers don’t get enough spectrum soon, the result will be dropped calls and slow data speeds. So what are the big 4 mobile carriers going to do about this? They’re going to do the best they can to get a much spectrum as possible, but it won’t be pretty. In fact, its going to be gruesome and here’s why.
