YouTube-Aktivität von thedude20020

Ich habe ein YouTube-Video zu meinen Favoriten hinzugefügt.: Drawing from some of the most pivotal points in his life, Steve Jobs, chief executive officer and co-founder of Apple Computer and of Pixar Animation Studios, urged graduates to pursue their dreams and see the opportunities in life's setbacks -- i...

Google+ 1 More: I'm Joining Google Monday

In the world of tech, you can make the news or you can break the news. I like to do both.

Never wanting to just play the role of armchair quarterback, I have over the last 12+ years actively played a direct or advisory role to dozens of startup companies, both consumer and enterprise. In the last 5+ years, I have shared with you many of my own experiences here on this blog, be it what I am...

iCloud is sticky, even before birth

Mobile Open Source

I was reading an interesting analysis today. It is a survey on smartphones, customer satisfaction and the like. The last part talks about iCloud and its effect on users. Let me copy it here for the link-clicking-averse:
The survey found that 29% of Apple’s existing company were “More Likely” to buy Apple products in the future because of iCloud, a service that was announced only a month ago and ...

‘If You See a Stylus, They Blew It’

Daring Fireball

The distinguishing feature of the $499 HTC Flyer — HTC’s first Android tablet — is that it has a stylus. Which stylus is not included and costs $80. Good luck with that.

Nielsen: 82% vom US-Tablet-Markt gehören Apple

IPhoneBlog de Nielsen

82-Prozent vom (jungen) US-Tablet-Markt verleibt sich Apples iPad ein. Soweit eine Nielsen-Umfrage aus dem vergangenen Monat.

Verwunderlich ist das nicht, wenn man sich die ersten Gehversuche von Motorola, Samsung und Co. anschaut. Noch verpackt keiner der bisherigen Konkurrenten seine IT-Komponenten in nur annähernd vergleichbar reizvoller Hardware – vom Preis ganz...

Neue iPad-Ad: “If You Asked”


Auf “We Believe” folgt “If You Asked” – die neue iPad-Ad verzichtet erneut komplett auf die (sprachliche) Erwähnung des Produktnamens. Ein weißes iPad-2-Modell zeigt der 30-Sekunden-Spot auch nicht. Als Sprecher bezahlt Apple weiterhin Peter Coyote.

Another Y Combinator Win: WuFoo Exits For $35 Million, After Raising Only $118,000


Online forms are not sexy, but every Website that wants to collect information or payments from visitors needs them. Today, SurveyMonkey acquired online form maker WuFoo to its growing bevy of tools for $35 million in cash and stock. I’ve confirmed the price with a source.

What’s really great about this story is that WuFoo is another Y Combinator win. The startup launched way back in 2006

iPhone Development

You may have been hearing some rumors and jokes around Twitter concerning something called "Appsterdam". If you've been wondering what that's all about, wonder no longer, Mike Lee lays it all out for you. It's an interesting idea, and I must admit I'm intrigued and would love to go. For a handful of personal reasons, I simply can't expatriate to Amsterdam at this point in my life, but I am...

Saying no to great ideas and customers

Don Dodge on The Next Big Thing

Focus is critically important to startups and large companies. Focus means saying no to some great ideas. Having lots of smart people and lots of money in the bank can make it hard to say no. I was mentoring a startup, helping them sort through where to focus and how to prioritize the opportunities. I told them to choose their customers carefully. Huh? That's right, choose your customers...

Apple Clamps Down On Incentivized App Downloads


Bad news for Tapjoy, Flurry, and numerous other mobile advertising platforms that cater to iOS developers: Apple is clamping down on incentivized downloads. In other words, it’s now much harder to buy yourself popularity on the App Store. Developers who submit applications with these offer walls are having their applications rejected, on the grounds that they are violating section 3.10 of the d...

Apple Reportedly Adjusts How Apps Are Ranked


Apple is apparently tweaking its App Store rankings to factor in more than pure download numbers, a welcome sign if true. It could be an attempt to mimic what Google’s done with the Android Market  which now appears to take into account daily and monthly engagement data, so this seems to be a case of Apple playing catch-up.

According to Inside Mobile Apps, several ad network and pay-per-install ...

Featured on Techcrunch today: one of my favorite companies


I love 955 Dreams. It’s great to see them get accolades and be featured in the press all over the place. Why did it take so long? Maybe the $10 price for their iPad app.

Today they are featured in Techcrunch and that makes me happy.

Of course you already know this company, I featured them back in January.

If you didn’t see my video back then, it’s worth watching this one. They...

★ The Chair

Daring Fireball

Even the chair on the stage was the same.

Yesterday’s iPad 2 introduction felt like a repeat of last year’s event for the original iPad. Same place. Same pace and structure for the presentation: a brief prelude of statistics showing how well Apple is doing company-wide; a positioning statement for where the iPad fits, why it exists; the reveal of the product; the specs; a tour of the system...
