More on smart pipes

Back to the subject of smart pipes, that had me going last week. All operators should open up for access to sockets. Then there will be a flood of rapid and stable multi-player games for mobiles.

Media exec note to self on strategy: mobile mobile and mobile

Mobile World Congress is in the midst of its third day. Is the Ericsson party tonight? What deal had that guy from Newbay say he had done last night in the bar? Is there a place to get foot massage nearby? I am sure the questions are many as the mega-over-the-top-exhibition-fatigue sets in. In that environment […]

Wireless Developer Forum – follow-up

Monday I participated at the Wireless Developer Forum conference in Cambridge. It was a great experience to present to the very educated audience. The Q&A and following discussions during the day taught me new things. On a personal note I got confirmation that presenting with the same attitude that I ski is a good approach […]

Got this idea when commenting on (another great) post over at MobHappy on mobile social networks. Isn’t the market much bigger among the users in the “Mobile-Only-Internet-Generation” (Do we have room for yet another acronym? – MOIG). The big dragons Facebook & Co. will/are of course taking a large chunk of the mobile user pie. […]
