ISOOSI Research Engine3,474This week on the #ISOOSICHAT  we are excited to have special guest +Barry Schwartz from Search Engine Roundtable (SER). Barry will be joining our regular #ISOOSIChat panelists including +Ammon Johns +Bill Slawski and +Carlos Fernandes.Barry has provided a very unique and valuable commentary on search engines and the search marketing industry for many years. Barry and the SER team report on the most interesting threads taking place at various popular Search Engine Marketing forums each day. Search Engine Roundtable not only reports on these topical issues, but also provides a synopsis that provides greater detail on these forum threads.One of SER's primary goals is provide a single source for the reader to visit to locate the most interesting threads covered at the SEM forums.Those in our audience that visit or contribute to forums know that sometimes things can get stated that are not based on facts. Sometimes these observations may lead to statements that sound like fact, but they are unfounded. We are after all talking about search engines here and considerations that are impacted by their algorithms - which unfortunately we in the SEM arena don't have access to :)Observations such as these can quickly turn from threads with some small incorrect assumptions into more widespread rumors and sometimes into larger myths that stick around for a longer period of time.Barry and his team do a great job of monitoring “hot topics” on the forums, presenting all sides of those important issues while contributing to the discussion with their own valued opinions.Bill Slawski, (Director of Search Marketing at Go Fish Digital) is well known for his vast knowledge of Google and other search engines and the patents that have been filed relating to their ranking algorithms. Although it is difficult to have certainty about the value and mix of individual search engine ranking signals, Bill has the notable ability to always bring always bring it back to facts…. referencing related patents, interviews or official statements on the subjeSearch Marketing Rumors, Myths and Truths2014-03-18 20:00:0061

Those 4 Girls1,025Welcome to +Those 4 Girls weekly show!!This week we are talking about Gender Roles - When Were They Defined  & How They Affect TodayWhen were gender roles defined?What was in place before gender roles were defined?Who defined them?How do gender roles affect us today in our current society?Meet Our Guests This Week!!!+Nicholas Cardot  - My life, my experiences, and my education have two unique facets to them, and on this page, I hope to showcase how the two have blended to develop me into the person I am today. As a former active duty soldier now serving in the United States Army Reserves, I garner wisdom from both the Military training and from my civilian business adventures.As an Army Reservist Psychological Operations Specialist, I work to influence the behavior of enemy personnel and foreign audiences. In this line of work, we distribute targeted information or conduct specific activities with the purpose of changing emotions, ways of thinking, and ultimately behavior. We study target audiences. We work to understand cultures, symbols and practices. We then use what we learn from these studies to identify the most effective courses of action to change their behavior.As a graphic design artist, I find that these skills from Psychological Operations become invaluable in guiding every aspect of a successful design. The typography, imagery, placement, color and every other aspect of a print or web design can work together to influence the behavior of a potential or returning customer. Each aspect of a design can communicate alongside the actual message contained in the words. A design can convey emotions, nostalgia, patriotism, and much more to support or reinforce the message being delivered. As an online marketer, these skills become equally valuable. In the modern landscape of social media, many lessons can be taken from Psychological Operations. By carefully crafting targeted messages and responses, you can subtly create and steer conversations and gain rapport with people around the world. This strategy of visual and social communication is one of my greatest passions.+Eli Fennell - I've lived in South Florida my whole life, and it would be hard for me to imagine living anywhere else.  I was born to two wonderful parents who are still together after aGender Roles - When Were They Defined & How They Affect Us Today2014-03-13 18:00:0097 
Meloney Hall3,290Teacher Says, “ Okay, class --  you better take notes for this lesson.”Fifteen students take notes vigorously as they try to keep up with writing cursive on their lined notebook paper.Eight Students do not take any notes at all.  They might ask for someone’s notes later.One Student draws doodles as a form of note-taking.  She gets laughed at and told to “grow-up” and take notes the right way.  I’m kind of embarrassed I listened to those peers; I need to gain those skills again!  So much easier to retain the information when you can draw pictures with your written notes (printed, not cursive). How about the Digital Way of taking notes today?  That’s what +Sacha Chua  will be showing us during the HOA broadcast with me.  I will be interviewing Sacha Chua on Wednesday, March 12th at 6:00pm ET / 3:00pm PT about how she uses SketchNotes for taking notes in a digital format.  Free-flow handwriting and techy all at the same time!  She’s a woman in science and technology, so she really loves gadgets!  She uses SketchNotes, and it’s really very fascinating!  Watching her do them LIVE is really the best!  I know Sacha as a fellow HelpOuts Provider, and I have seen her do this for many HOA’s.  This is why I wanted to interview her --  you’ll say WOW like I did when I first learned about her and what she does.   This is a link to give you the basic idea of what the system is and why it is so handy for students, business people, and anyone else who needs to retain information.  And if you’re into saving paper, then this is a true match for you!  I like to think of SketchNotes as a digital white board.  http://www.core77.com/blog/sketchnotes/sketchnotes_101_the_basics_of_visual_note-taking_19678.aspSelect YES or MAYBE to get a reminder on your calendar.  It will also help mark the spot if you can’t watch live, but will want to watch the replay.  You’re in for a techy-treat!  Hope you’ll be watching! Visual Note-Taking with Sacha Chua2014-03-12 23:00:0034

Jess + Scott + You309People are bombarded with so many messages...which requires intentional planning to integrate a message across mediums, interact with customers in a way that brings them into the story, and know exactly what the result will be. That’s the obvious truth of using storytelling in marketing.Source:The company value proposition. (Who are you, what do you do, and why does it matter?)Framework:Stories position your product within the marketplace and are reinforced by every customer facing area of the business (and to ensure consistency...the buy in from employees, vendors, and collaborators must exist too).Connection Point:Stories show solutions to customer problems, give them opportunities to experience what they are told they will receive. Here are some commonly held beliefs...that are actually myths:- Try to get customers to interact with the brand (but, do they really want to?).- Interaction builds relationship (but, do people want to have a relationship with a brand?).- Be everywhere all the time to reach customers (but, do customers want to hear from you all the time?)Special Guest: Mike AlltonCombine all that with SEO and +Mike Allton  is the one person we immediately thought of.

Over the last three years I've spent time in thirteen countries and three continents making airports and hotel rooms more of a constant, for me, than home. The one stability in all this is Google+ where I can be found, time allowing, on most days. _The conversation here is very real and the issues we talk about are engaging and I have met people on G+ who are simply superb to connect with. I post frequently on what grabs my attention. I share insights from my writing and research and I take part in many conversations where I feel I can deliver value.  Social media is changing everything. How we shape that change and what we do in the aftermath is down to us. _This week's show is sponsored by:+Holiday Inn Washington DC-Central/White House  A full service hotel, conveniently located in downtown Washington, DC The hotel is located within walking distance of the White House, DC Convention Center, and two separate Metro/subway stops. http://www.inndc.comEach week +Christine DeGraff & +Mia Voss  spotlight guests who share What's Your Story?

Eli Fennell65,903There are different ways to build a following, and different goals in terms of reach and scale.  The small business owner may dream of internet media stardom, but probably doesn't need it like the Big Brand, their goals may be more modest (reaching that small but critical fan base, for example).  Likewise, the Tech Blogger may never rival the audience of Britney Spears, but can build a respectable and valuable audience in their own ways.This Wednesday, February 12, 2014 at 8 PM ET, we'll be discussing this issue with three guests who have approached it in very different ways and with different opportunities as well.+Chris Jenkins is a web guy, home brewer, and "glasshole" (Google Glass Explorer) from my home state of Florida.  His turn ons include long walks on the beach while playing Ingress, and his turn offs include poorly coded or incomplete websites and blogs.+Alexandra Riecke-Gonzales is an Authority Marketer & Brand Strategist at +SEOWiSE, a graduate student at Kent State University, and also a Glass Explorer.  She is a bit of a health nut and the proud owner of three dogs.+Aaron Wood is a social media "International Man of Mystery".  His Google+ profile tells you very little specific about him, yet he earned a spot on Google+'s coveted  Suggested User List and has gained hundreds of thousands of followers.  He's not afraid to call out anything that bothers him, and when he does, he usually goes viral.We'll be discussing the different ways to build a following depending on your goals and the opportunities that present themselves.  I'll be adding my own perspective as a Two Time Veteran of the Google+ Algorithmic Suggested User List.It should be a very insightful discussion with a great group of people, and there will almost certainly be random moments of humor and silliness.  We hope you'll join us!#digitalmediaconnections  #DMCshow  #throughglass  Digital Media Connections #3 - Building a Following2014-02-13 02:00:0034 
ISOOSI Research Engine3,474+Mark Traphagen joins the ISOOSI chat today at 3pm EST and we're super excited to have him on the show. Mark has been one of the people for me personally (and I know for many others too) that has really been instrumental in highlighting the benefits of Google+. But, not only the easy pickings that are clear to see. Mark evangelizes the use of Google+ as not only a business network but a social network. A social network that is on a different level to anything else we have on the interwebs. He'll be the first to say that it has given him opportunities that would never have existed before it. And I for one share that experience and couldn't agree more.All businesses can learn from this hangout... and we'll start really with the basics too. We know we have many small businesses that use ISOOSI and list their businesses in our search directory that currently have zero presence on Google+  So, some of what we talk about may be already known to those that are immersed in it on a daily basis.... but through this hangout we hope to join Mark in expressing our belief in the platform and communicate the benefits it can bring to you - from a personal AND business perspective.+Carlos Fernandes President, ISOOSIGhost Town or Land of Opportunity - Google+2014-02-11 21:00:0094

He's pretty sure Stone Temple CEO Eric Enge added "senior" to Mark's title as a veiled reference to his age. He lives in Durham NC, which he regards as Portland OR without a web parody (yet).Mark has been active on Google+ since its third day and has developed a reputation as an expert on using Google+ for business and personal branding, as well as on Google Authorship.When he's not singlehandedly trying to eliminate Google+'s "ghost town" image by posting there at least once every 10 minutes, you'll find Mark playing mandolin in a New Orleans-style second line band called The Bulltowns Strutters, and competing in storyslam events.This week's show is sponsored by:+CT Social  is an interactive digital agency based in Central Florida.

Christine & Mia5,887Join +Christine & Mia and our January guest host +Craig Fifield to interview special guest +Eli Davidson this week.Wednesday, January 15th11:30am PST/12:30pm MST/1:30pm CST/2:30pm ESTMore about our guest: +Eli Davidson is a nationally acclaimed female motivational keynote speaker, executive coach, award winning author, and corporate spokesperson.If playing small is no longer an option this show is JUST for YOU. The worst day of my life sparked $100K DAYS and is helping kids in Africa. It’s still hard to talk about it. I fell in love- in love so bad that going to Costco was like going to Paris. You get the picture. I closed my business to move to Hawaii to get married. Baby, my abs looked really good. On a Wednesday morning my fiancé woke up and announced that he didn't know if he wanted to be in a relationship with anyone. And then asked me to get on a plane and go back to LA…..that day. So, in February 2011 I didn’t know how I would be able to pay my rent. I was a mess to put it mildly. That diamond I had given back was a symbol. A diamond is the most condensed form of wealth on the planet. I had to find the diamond inside myself. What was my value and contribution and how could I help others?I am an entrepreneur so this took me on a journey of discovering the “diamond in my business “. By uncovering that value (and I will continue to be a student of this for the rest of my life) and creating those diamond systems I took my business from $4k a month to $100,000 days of sales and over $1million in sales in 2 years. Then I got to mentor other business owners to use those same systems. I guess it sounds self-serving, but that is not the intention. Women in particular have told me this story gives them the courage to stop playing small and go for it themselves. I am so excited to be on the show so I can give some tangible tools to help people now.I believe that small business can and must be a genuine engine of good works. What if every entrepreneur gave back to the planet? Now, helping business owners is a way to help make our world a better place. My life is pretty unrecognizable from a few years ago. I am still in awe. In my last event we just raised $25,000 to adopt a village and teach entrepreneurship in Africa. That is the point of all this. There is just so much good we can do together! This week's show is sponsored by:+CT Social CT Social, LLC is an interactive digital agency based in Central Florida.

Yifat Cohen71,879METal is an exclusive gathering of and for dynamic entrepreneurs and change-makers in the media, entertainment and technology space. Their events range from talks with high-profile thinkers to connecting ideas and collaboration in our community.One time sneak-view into METal's private meetingsThis week, Tim Sanders, a New York Times bestselling author, public speaker, and former Yahoo! executive will be speaking about Creating the SaleThe soul of this belief, comes from that creatives of all types have a passion for what they are doing because they are chasing the truth and doing “what’s right” with their lives. This is the fuel for their inventive thinking. They don’t deduce their way to the close, they create new worlds that bring everyone together. Much like a marketing executive or a software engineer, they bring their creativity to work everyday and find new joy in selling.Many of us have one thing in common: We are creative types trapped inside a body that is focused on a professional career, at this week’s COED METal, Featured speaker Tim Sanders will show us how to become a creative sales genius.Tim will show how the “funnel system” of sales is outdated, primal at this point in it’s assumptions. Each time we look at sales as a numbers game, we reduce people to statistics. That’s bad for our brand, future relationships and our sales-karma.This talk is perfect for any professional who faces a complicated sales process or an entrepreneur who is up against a high wall of resistance in selling his or her ideaThis week’s featured speaker is Best Selling Author Tim Sanders. Tim’s business expertise and deep research capabilities make him indispensable to some of the biggest brands in the world. He speaks for strong business relationships, both internal and external. “Get them right,” he says, “and you’ll grow your business during good and bad times alike.” Tim’s relevant point of view and reputation as a people expert makes him one of the most in demand keynote speakers on the conference and convention circuit.ENTERTAINMENTEnjoy the music of Freddie Ravel and Jhameel during this event.Freddie Ravel has two infectious passions: creating purpose-driven music and applying its proven effectiveness in helping entrepreneurs, businesses and corporations thrive. As an internationally-acclaimed Producer, Pianist, Presenter and Founder of the transformational engine BUSINESS HARMONICS® - an award-winning peak performance program and methodology to enhance leadership, collaboration and time management - Freddie brings an extensive track record of star power success in innovation, performance and product creation.Battlefy started as a league management platform that catered to micro-organizers like college eSports clubs.

Jesse Wojdylo789,710Over the last few months I have noticed many people using Twitter to supplement Google+ or the other way around. I think there are some very effective strategies that can be used. This week we will get some of those strategies out on the table. All the information you need on Google Plus Chat is available here:http://wojdylosocialmedia.com/google-plus-chat-twitter-chat/In December of last year I really jumped on Twitter in a big way as I love the real time updates and the sports engagement. This has yet to come to Google+ so I spend my weekends chatting it up with college football and college basketball folks. While doing that I notice plenty of other awesome social media users that know and love the Google+ platform. This led me to these discussion questions:1. How long have you been active on Twitter?2. Do you use Twitter for pleasure or business? Or pain?3. Do you auto post to Twitter? Do you post Google+ Posts?4. How do you use Twitter to supplement Google+?5. Mention some active Twitter users that may enjoy Google+6. Do you want a Google Plus Chat on Christmas Eve?Please join us for #googlepluschat  on Twitter every Tuesday at 2:00 pm est. We will discuss if there will be a Christmas Eve event or not. Either way, join us this week!Google Plus Chat Twitter Chat2013-12-17 20:00:0055

Did +Business Insider​ really just publish an article based on "data" purportedly gathered by someone using a pseudonym from the classic sci-fi film Forbidden Planet?

For the record, I refuse to address these numbers until the person "reporting" them puts his real name to them.

Remix OS: Android Meets the Desktop?

Three former Google employees are trying to boldly go where no Android ROM has gone before: desktop-like productivity.

Other attempts have been made to bring Android to a laptop or hybrid form factor, and a few unremarkable attempts to bring it to true desktop PC's.  These efforts have been fundamentally undermined by the very OS they adopted: Android, for all that it has moved from phones to tablets, to glasses, watches, and cars, is at its heart a mobile OS, not a desktop OS.

Of course, Android Honeycomb and Ice Cream Sandwich had appeared to move in this direction for tablets, where the UI was much more desktop-like, but by Jellybean this attempt to make Android's UI "responsive" to the larger form factor ended.  Apps might be able to scale and be responsive, but apart from a bit more room on the app dock anda... more »

Well, that just figures. Kudos to Apple, though, on acquiring the best company in the business.

The Nexus 6 almost had a fingerprint reader, but doesn't, because Apple

We already knew that Google and Motorola scrapped the fingerprint reader in the Nexus 6 thanks to a deep dive into the Nexus 6 code. Now former Motorola CEO +Dennis Woodside explains why the Nexus 6 didn't come with a fingerprint reader. Because Apple.___Well, that just figures.

BlackBerry CEO Loses His Mind

John Chen, CEO of BlackBerry, wants to see a world of "app neutrality". What he means by this is that app makers should be required to support all (or at least, all major?) platforms. Meaning no more iOS-first development, but more importantly from BlackBerry's perspective, no more apps only available or maintained on iOS and Android. (The irony that BlackBerry licenses access to the Amazon App Store is, apparently, lost on him.)

He likens this disingenuously to Net Neutrality, the principle that ISP's should be required to treat all traffic the same. Of course, Net Neutrality refers only to bandwidth, not compatibility. If your out-of-date version of Internet Explorer can't load a newer site, or your Chromebook can't load Shockwave, or you downloaded a Windows program installer to your Mac only to discover your... more »

If your out-of-date version of Internet Explorer can't load a newer site, or your Chromebook can't load Shockwave, or you downloaded a Windows program installer to your Mac only to discover your mistake, oh well.

What Mister Chen is suggesting is mandatory compatibility, which one assumes includes his own company's platform. Many small app developers would find this onerous, perhaps even impossible to afford. The right and responsibility of developers to invest resources wisely has made the rich app ecosystem possible.

While we might all wish, on some level, to be able to run all apps on all platforms, this reality will only be made possible by empowering a rich web-based ecosystem. As long as native apps are preferred, there will be limitations for users and developers in supporting multiple platforms.___

The Challenges of Facebook @Work

This article really nails the challenges Facebook faces with their @Work program. Enterprise Software and Social are really diametrically opposed in their approaches. If the goal is merely to provide a new communication tool for large companies or companies with multiple locations, Facebook @Work may win some adherants. But as workflow tool, while it no doubt fits the workflow of Facebook, it isn't so clear it fits the average corporate workflow or hierarchy.

Corporations tend to demand specialized tools, strong assurances of data confidentality, long-term product stability, legacy support, and other things Facebook would have a difficult time supporting, even by cobbling together 3rd party developers to contribute apps, plugins, extensions, or workarounds.

Social networks on the other hand need to be nearly-one-size-fits-all (at least for a given user type, whether that be your 'Friends' on Facebook or your favorite photographers on Instagram), can have variable privacy settings and policies that can evolve over time, need 'legacy support' at best back to the beginning of the network, and need to change quickly with the times to keep up with or ahead of the competition.

The dream of "The Social Enterprise" remains largely elusive, and while Facebook has advantages, they also have many disadvantages.

People Keeper: 'Smart' Relationship Management, or Frightening Portent?

A new app called pplkpr (short for People Keeper) promises to help automate your friendship and relationship choices by monitoring your heart rate (though an Apple Watch) and location (i.e. when you're with other people), combined with self-report data, to keep tabs on your "emotional reactions" and advise you who to schedule into your life, and who to schedule out of it.

The flaw in this plan is fairly obvious: heart rate and self-report data are not, even taken together, a great basis for defining human relationships. Self-report data is notoriously unreliable, and heart rate is loosely correlated with emotional state and affected by many different factors.

People Keeper: 'Smart' Relationship Management, or Frightening Portent?

The flaw in this plan is fairly obvious: heart rate and self-report data are not, even taken together, a great basis for defining human relationships. Self-report data is notoriously unreliable, and heart rate is loosely correlated with emotional state and affected by many different factors.

On the other hand, while this particular app is undoubtedly promising more than the technology can deliver, is this a sign of a future in which technology becomes a significant mediator of human relationships, not just in terms of facilitating communication but in our very understanding of our relationships and the most important decisions we make about them?

Will your devices (whether stationary, portable, mobile, wearble, implanted, or injected) some day warn you against loaning money to that friend in need, or marrying that girl you love but who maybe isn't quite right for you? Will children avoid forming friendships because "my app told me so"? Will our apps even play matchmaker, recommending friends and possible love interests based on something far more sophisticated than the primitive matchmaking technology of our own time?

I think the answer here is: almost certainly. The question then becomes, will this be a good thing or a bad thing? Will our technology be more like an impartial observer, offering insights we might not trust coming from others? Will it behave more like a Helicoper Parent, trying to warn you away from all danger at the expense of having a full and free life to explore? Or worse, will it be manipulated for fun and profit? Will advertisers pay to steer two people together because they both drink Pepsi or drive Ford Trucks? Will politicians, the military industrial complex, multinationals and the like use it to bend our will to theirs in a nightmare scenario even Orwell couldn't picture?

People Keeper may not answer any of these frightening questions, but its very existence and claims surely raises them for consideration.___

2nd Gen Moto G and X Certified in China

China's TENAA (the Chinese equivalent of the FCC in the U.S.) has cleared the 2nd generation Moto G and Moto X for sale in the Chinese market.

This being an essentially regulatory approval of the technology, this may not be the final hurdle to market, but backed by Lenovo, one of China's largest players, these phones will likely make it market in some form.

The question is: what form? Will these Chinese versions of the phone run Google Apps and Services? This seems unlikely, if not impossible. A custom version? Probably. Most likely lacking access to most Google services and full of China-specific bloatware rather than the clean, largely bloat-free version most users enjoy.

Will the Moto series be as desirable to Chinese users as Indian and European users, despite any differences in the final product brought to market? Maybe. If they can keep bloatware to a minimum, and maintain the expected performance and battery life optimizations, these could still be popular devices.

The Moto X, however, may be particularly challenged to deliver, as its signature capabilities of Always-On Language Recognition and Context Awareness are somewhat tied to Google's cloud services (OK Google Now is the default hotword, for example). Technically these are hardware level, but they really need to plug-in to cloud services to be as useful as possible.

It will be interesting to see if the Chinese market reacts well to the new Moto brand or if they prove less eager than their Indian neighbors.

I know Obama's Administration has been progressive in its approach to the internet on the whole, and I appreciate that, but I don't want to have to use the Disconnect Extension to feel secure on a Government healthcare website. I'll withhold judgment for now but the potential for abuse is huge and I want to know how they will address this. Obamacare isn't Google. We shouldn't have to be profiled unless there is an absolutely justifiable reason and it should never be used outside the context of using the service.

Facebook News Feed Now Showing Fewer Hoaxes

Facebook tells us today’s update to News Feed reduces the distribution of posts that people have reported as hoaxes and adds an annotation to posts that have received many of these types of reports to warn others on Facebook.

Hoaxes are a form of News Feed spam that includes scams (“Click here to win a lifetime supply of coffee”), or deliberately false or misleading news stories (“Man sees dinosaur on hike in Utah”).

Mind you Facebook is not removing stories people report as false and not reviewing content and making a determination on its accuracy.

Also good to know: people tend not to report satirical content intended to be humorous, or content that is clearly labeled as satire. This type of content should not be affected by this update.

The vast majority of publishers on Facebook will not be impacted by this update. A small set of publishers who are frequently posting hoaxes and scams will see their distribution decrease.

Microsoft Patent to Make Phones Less Annoying

Smartphones are a marvel of modern technology, but their ubiquity isn't without its drawbacks. One of those is the annoyance of phones going off and glowing too brightly in places where they can be very disruptive, like movie theaters.

Microsoft wants to change that, at least if you own a Windows Phone, with an "Inconspicuous Mode" that triggers automatically based on various contextual clues and data (GPS, ticket purchases, calendar entries, etc...).

Such a system may take years to perfect, so don't get too excited, but maybe some day we won't see glowing phone screens in dark theaters or have ringtones going off in the middle of Church service.

Material Design in the Google Search App for Android

Last night I went Searching from my smartphone for information on the movie That Thing You Do!, and to my great surprise the results I saw were extremely Material Design flavored, and immersive and interacting in a way I'm used to seeing with apps instead of Search results.  In particular, tapping the green arrow button threw me into a whole app-like page for That Thing You Do! without any organic results showing whatsoever.

I found out everything I was likely to need to know in a few screens, and only checked the organic results on the main SERP for sake of curiosity, which I doubt many people would do as they were way down the page.

This type of result, I should add, only appears when I use the Google Search app (for now, at least), not when I Search from inside the mobile browser.  From the browser it shows the usual Knowledge Panel style result, but it may be that this same type of design will roll out more widely eventually.

These types of results suggest that, for at least some types of queries, Searching Google (at least from the Google app on mobile devices) will soon be more like using a dedicated app for those types of queries than the combination Knowledge Graph + Blue Links we've been accustomed to.

Has anyone else seen a result like this?

So Long, Scroogled, and Thanks for the T-Shirts!

Good on Microsoft, for finally seeing how the Scroogled Campaign has been an utter failure.  It only ever made them look petty and hypocritical, frankly, as they tried to weave through the nuances of why it was OK for them to do what they were bashing Google for doing.

It was a Ballmer Baby, and this is one case where throwing it out with the bathwater was a good idea.

Breaking: Supreme Court to Decide Gay Marriage Cases

The Supreme Court of the United States has agreed to hear cases on the right to same-sex marriage, which will likely settle once-and-for all whether the Constitution guarantees marriage equality and, by extension, whether laws against gay marriage are unconstitutional.

Precedent suggests that SCOTUS is likely to overturn any ban on gay marriage as unconstitutional, but with no certainty of this, proponents of gay marriage are likely to be as nervous about the outcome of this case as opponents.

Google Catching Up with Facebook for 'Social Logins'

In the battle to get users logged-in to sites and internet services using a social identity system, Google is a strong #2 to Facebook and quickly catching up.  In the 3rd Quarter of 2013, Facebook commanded 45% of social logins, and Google commanded only 35%.  A year later, those numbers were 43% to 40%, a slight decrease for Facebook but a significant increase for Google.

Of course, while both types of accounts can be considered social, Facebook clearly has more active users of its social network than Google.  So, if this trend continues and Google overtakes Facebook, it may reflect a distrust of Facebook, a desire to keep some aspects of our online identities separate from our social networking habits.

Google could therefore 'win', but not necessarily to the benefit of Google+ (except in its role as a user data and behavior gathering service under a unified login), as much as to the detriment of halting Facebook's efforts to control all parts of our online identity.  People may trust Google more, merely because Facebook contains more 'intimate' data and records of their personal lives, connections, and activities.  (This may not be strictly true, in all cases, but at least feels that way to many people.)

Either way, one clear loser is emerging: everyone else.

So you say apps are more important than mobile sites?  You say no one uses web Search on their mobile devices, instead they use search apps like Yelp?

Not so fast!  As it turns out, when it comes to discovering new content, mobile users value and favor the mobile web, especially for some types of discovery.

They also use the app store search functionality to find apps.  Facebook may be making mint selling ads for apps, but when it comes time for most users to find apps, app store search is still king... which points to a future of Search on mobile which is bright for Google (and Apple, though Apple doesn't yet consider Search core to their business the way Google does... and it shows).  As the number of apps increases to millions and beyond, app store Search will become all the more important, as will paid advertising within the app store.

Tell Google Your Social Profiles

Since the early days of the Google+ project, Google has been criticized for at times single-mindedly driving all users to Google+... or trying to, at least, since we all know not everyone took the carrot or the stick.

One of Google+'s most powerful forms of integration has been in the Knowledge Panel for businesses, public figures, etc...  A Knowledge Panel result for a local business, for example, displays info drawn from their Google+ Page: their Logo, their Address, Hours, and Phone Number, Recent Posts to their Google+ Page, etc...  As a general rule, Google Search integration has favored Google+ at the expense of other networks.

Now, however, Google will be allowing businesses and individuals to use markup code on their website to specify their social profiles, which can then be displayed in the Knowledge Panel.

New: Specify your social profiles to Google

Have you noticed our new feature in the Knowledge Graph in the past weeks? You can now add your or your company’s social profile information to your Knowledge Graph entry by using structured data markup on your official website!

Currently, you can specify the following social profiles:
- Facebook
- Twitter
- Google+
- Instagram
- YouTube
- LinkedIn
- Myspace

To learn more about how to implement the structured markup, see our developers' documentation at https://developers.google.com/webmasters/structured-data/customize/social-profiles ___Tell Google Your Social Profiles

Since the early days of the Google+ project, Google has been criticized for at times single-mindedly driving all users to Google+... or trying to, at least, since we all know not everyone took the carrot or the stick.

One of Google+'s most powerful forms of integration has been in the Knowledge Panel for businesses, public figures, etc...  A Knowledge Panel result for a local business, for example, displays info drawn from their Google+ Page: their Logo, their Address, Hours, and Phone Number, Recent Posts to their Google+ Page, etc...  As a general rule, Google Search integration has favored Google+ at the expense of other networks.

Now, however, Google will be allowing businesses and individuals to use markup code on their website to specify their social profiles, which can then be displayed in the Knowledge Panel.

Currently it supports most of the largest social networks, and developers are also encouraged to specify other social networks not currently supported.

The goal here may be twofold:

1) Improve the relevance of their own Knowledge Panel results.  Sending some traffic to Facebook or Twitter instead of Google+ may not be great for Google+, but the alternative is less relevant Search results forcing users back to those very networks to search... which, suffice it say, is worse than referring people from a business perspective.  They might just never come back if they're getting more accurate results elsewhere.

2) Data, Data, Data - If Google is to use social data to improve Search, they need to get that data somehow to begin with.

Partnerships between Google and the social networks have been hard to come by (or quickly fallen apart, like the Twitter Real Time Search deal).  This makes getting at much of this data directly almost impossible, let alone to be able to connect a single user to multiple social profiles.

Google+ itself has a Profile section for Other Profiles, where they may have gained some of this data already, but only from users of Google+ who actively filled this information out.  If you don't use Google+ and don't want to, you're not going to fill this out.

However, Google was far more successful at getting people to use authorship markup, i.e. Google Authorship, at least numerically speaking.  Why?  Because it tied into Search, making the benefits potentially greater than using the social network Authorship was tied to (G+, of course, a fact which was frequently criticized as a linking scheme by the Search Giant known for eagerly punishing such schemes).

This has the potential to eclipse Authorship, and is less susceptible to abuse (Google Authorship was popular with spammers, astrologists, and other types), and to poor implementation (authorship code was often used inappropriately, for example on product listing pages or business homepages).  It is also virtually immune to accusations of Google overly favoring G+ or running a link scheme.

The best part?  This is available for people and businesses.

The Christian Coalition, Tea Party, Liberals, Environmentalists, Libertarians, Florida's Business Federation all found something they can agree on, and believe it or not, it's solar power.

Specifically, they all agree that solar power generated by those who install it (homeowners, retail business owners, etc...) should be able to be sold (some of that power, at least) direct to consumers... for example, a condo owner might sell power from rooftap panels on their building to their own tenants.

Under current Florida law, only utilities providers (who, not surprisingly, are opposed to this) can sell electricity directly to consumers.  This has had the ironic result of causing the Sunshine State's solar market to be stagnant.  The ability to sell solar power would further incentivize the shift to solar power, by allowing people and businesses to recoup some of theiri... more »

Obviously, such a coalition isn't united simply by environmental concerns, many who would otherwise yawn at solar power are no doubt inspired to support this move because they view the inability to sell solar power in the state as a violation of some fundamental right, or an assault on capitalism, while many are just looking to make money from a new revenue source.

Thus, it appears the solution to getting nearly universal, almost entirely nonpartisan support for an issue is if it ticks at least one box for every group involved.  Conservatives might think climate change is nonsense but still support this from a business perspective; an environmentalist might prefer your interest in solar was ideological, but will settle for business allies whose motive is profit; etc...  As long as each group focuses on their own motivation, and overlooks the differing motivations of other groups, this alliance is made possible.  There may be an important lesson here about Coalition Building for Activism and Politics.

Apparently, Myspace is not only alive and kicking, but growing AND making money

Indeed, Myspace (no longer using the former MySpace capitalization) still has over 50 million people visiting it every month.

“Throwback Thursdays” are particular popular where people dig out pictures of 'those were the days!...' and sharing them, often on FB and Twitter.

According to comScore, in November 2014 Myspace received 575% more unique visitors than they did in November of 2013.

Also in November Myspace had over 300 million video views, many of them likely music related. But it was enough to rank them 16th on the last comScore Video Metric rankings, according to +The Wall Street Journal 한국어판 http://tgcafe.it/1wdB9oW

And perhaps the most surprising fact is that since May the Advertising Cloud suite of Myspace products has handled $5 billion in ad transactions for a set of beta advertisers! Not bad at all...

Unfortunately, the reality is that this is out of their hands.  A Nexus, Google Play Experience, or Android One device may get an update to fix this if they're not past their support period, because Google controls the software updates on these.

Unfortunately they don't control it on most Android devices, and until recently, WebView was baked into the OS, meaning an update to patch WebView on those devices would require at least a small OS upgrade, and the OEM's and carriers control when and whether to update a device, not Google.

Perhaps Google should have seen this coming sooner.  WebView updates on newer versions take place in the background through Google Play Services, much like how the Play Store itself gets updated.  Play Services is supported by Android 2.3 and above, so if they'd unbundled WebView from the OS back then, or even by Jellybean, this problem would not be so pervasive as it is.

This points even more strongly, I think, to the need for Android users to buy devices where upgrades are controlled by Google, like Nexus devices, or from OEM's with a reputation for rapid updates like Moto.  It of course also reinforces the need to consider security before downloading, installing, and running any app.___

Being awake in a coma for over a decade...

...or having to be subjected to the kids show Barney throughout that period.

On second thought, definitely the latter.

I'm still trying to grasp the point of this, and similar efforts.  Is "Social for Work" really a movement the business world needs, or a naked ploy by the social companies themselves to expand from a consumer product to an enterprise product?

I know this much: I don't trust Facebook not to let their algorithms decide what work updates you REALLY wanted to see most.

Chromium OS is gaining support for the IFC6410 single-board computer, a Raspberry Pi-like single-board.

Clicking through the link below to read more about this board is revealing, as the board appears to be a contender in the emerging field of modern robotics development.

Many of these robots will be "Internet of Things" machine, where Chromium OS would then dovetail nicely with Google's own robotics and Internet of Things ambitions.

How Can the Two Top Tech Companies Be Losing Stock Value?

Apple and Google are basically the two top tech companies for consumer technology.  Their core businesses are still strong.  They're making money hand-over-fist.  If you cobbled together an assortment of some of their top competitors, they likely have more users and make more profit than nearly all of them combined.

So why are their stock values taking a hard hit?

While the following article doesn't really answer this question, I'll volunteer an answer: we're in a startup bubble.  Yes, a bubble, one which will burst as soon as it becomes painfully obvious that 99.99999% of the "hot startups" today have a purely fictive value, and are usually worth the most as "acqui-hires" by companies with actual, real business models.

For all the talk of Apple or Google being "in trouble", their users keep using them (a lot), buying/clicking-on their products, generating more revenue for the two companies combined than a dozen Facebooks or a million Snapchats generate.  They're too mature anymore to "go viral", which will inevitably limit their growth potential (there isn't very far to grow when you've already reached everyone you can).  Those chasing the quick reward will always favor growth stocks to value stocks.___

Obama Administration Asked to Weigh in on Oracle v. Google

The U.S. Supreme Court has asked the Obama Administration to offers its views on the Oracle v. Google dispute.  If you're unfamiliar with the conflict, Oracle has been suing Google for years now over alleged "copyright violation" of its API for Java.

Courts have gone either way on this, with the most recent Appeals Court ruling in favor of Oracle.  This was, to say the least, a peculiar reinvention of copyright law, which previously (and anywhere else in the world) does not protect an API.

An API is a set of routines, protocols, and tools for building software applications, and consequently it makes no sense to cover it under copyright laws, especially when the underlying Java system is Open Source and when Google was given explicit permission from the then-CEO to use it as they did.  Rulingin... more »

SCOTUS has shown very little patience for dubious software patent claims in recent years, often disagreeing with the Appeals Courts, while President Obama has been a champion against patent trolling and is close with the leadership of Google.  Neither of these, unfortunately, can ensure the outcome.

Sadly, this article is stuck behind a paywall now, so I'm forced to summarize it:

Questions about whether to buy, sell, or hold Google stock have been circulating recently.  This is fair. Google has been a skyrocket stock in recent years but, like any giant of the tech world, their core businesses, side businesses, and moats face more challenges now than they have in a very long time.

Evercore lowered their price target, but their explanation boiled down to a mixed message: Google has been making product advances that make their core business more defensible, but in exchange for short-term market leverage.

The two examples they give are Google's integration of information like Flight details pulled into Search results via Gmail, and their more aggressive approach to omnichannel marketing.

Google has been a skyrocket stock in recent years but, like any giant of the tech world, their core businesses, side businesses, and moats face more challenges now than they have in a very long time.

Evercore lowered their price target, but their explanation boiled down to a mixed message: Google has been making product advances that make their core business more defensible, but in exchange for short-term market leverage.

The two examples they give are Google's integration of information like Flight details pulled into Search results via Gmail, and their more aggressive approach to omnichannel marketing.

We could say the former is, broadly speaking, related to product line integration: the more useful one part of your Google account is to others, the 'stickier' Google becomes.  If using Gmail makes Search more valuable, and Gmail already has a lot of users, then Gmail users are more likely to stick with Google and avoid switching.  We can also look to Google Now, which is an experimental testing ground in many ways for how Google can integrate data to provide before-demand solutions to users' needs.

The latter point, however, is far more interesting:

Google is becoming a central place to go for things they previously sent you to other sites to do.  Flight and hotel reservations, for example, can be handled more-or-less directly through Google; Google Shopping provides a more "crowdsourced" solution to the eCommerce issue than Amazon (which decidedly favors their own retail efforts, making partnerships harder to form); and soon Google is expected to compete in the car insurance price comparison market.

While Amazon may be pulling a lot of traffic from Google in online retail shopping, and Facebook may be competing for referral traffic to websites, Google remains strong in areas of Search related to things like flight and hotel booking, car rental and insurance, and yes even retail.  More dynamic, integrated, and direct solutions to such queries thus represents a huge potential revenue opportunity.

It also would represent a radical change in Google Search.  In the early days of Search, information and solutions were so scattered across the web only a Google could make it manageable for users.  On the back of this, however, some companies have developed very sophisticated solutions to a wide variety of user needs.  There is less need for Google in a world where a handful of sites and apps can directly cover online retail, flight and hotel booking, insurance price comparisons, etc...

However, Google remains strong in these areas.  Not everyone can or will replace Google with a combination of the Amazons and eBays, Pricelines and Orbitz, eSurances and Netquotes of the world to go around Search for all of these needs.  For every person dedicated enough to cobble together a full set of solutions to these sorts of needs, there are far more who will have at best a few of these pieces of the puzzle solved.

This points more clearly than ever to an obvious conclusion: Google as a source of "Ten Blue Links" is going the way of the dinosaurs.  There may continue to be an area for this, where the needs of users aren't easily solved or are too niche to bother, but in the future Google does not want to be a source for links: they want to be a source for direct solutions.___

Google Donating $300,000 to Charlie Hebdo

Google is showing support for Charlie Hebdo, the satirical French newspaper attacked by terrorist gunmen, to the tune of $300K.

The magazine, whose circulation is normally around 60,000 copies, pledges to circulate their next edition in over 1,000,000 copies.

Having been concerned, personally, over whether a small satirical newspaper could survive such a devastating attack, or whether they would have the resolve to continue if they could, it is very reassuring to see that terror doesn't so easily defeat the freedom of expression.

While I respect the rights of Muslims to practice their faith, including honoring the proscription on making images of the Prophet or other holy figures of their religion, nothing is so sacred it can't be spoken about, challenged, or even ridiculed.  If your faith is strong, then... more »

While I don't consider Charlie Hebdo an especially clever or humorous publication myself (the phrase "Discount Mad Magazine" comes to mind), anymore than I believe The Interview to be great cinema, I stand with anyone's right to free expression, even when what they express makes my blood boil.

Remix OS: Android Meets the Desktop?

Three former Google employees are trying to boldly go where no Android ROM has gone before: desktop-like productivity.

Other attempts have been made to bring Android to a laptop or hybrid form factor, and a few unremarkable attempts to bring it to true desktop PC's.  These efforts have been fundamentally undermined by the very OS they adopted: Android, for all that it has moved from phones to tablets, to glasses, watches, and cars, is at its heart a mobile OS, not a desktop OS.

Of course, Android Honeycomb and Ice Cream Sandwich had appeared to move in this direction for tablets, where the UI was much more desktop-like, but by Jellybean this attempt to make Android's UI "responsive" to the larger form factor ended.  Apps might be able to scale and be responsive, but apart from a bit more room on the app dock anda... more »

Of course, Android Honeycomb and Ice Cream Sandwich had appeared to move in this direction for tablets, where the UI was much more desktop-like, but by Jellybean this attempt to make Android's UI "responsive" to the larger form factor ended.  Apps might be able to scale and be responsive, but apart from a bit more room on the app dock and a few small differences, the OS of the tablet began to match the phone more-or-less exactly.

Remix OS attempts to remake Android for productivity with a keyboard-and-mouse-friendly interface that includes windowing, right clicking for pop-up menus, and a task bar.

It also happens to look remarkably like a Microsoft Surface clone, though this may or may not be a favorable comparison depending on how you feel about the Surface's design.

The company has expressed ambitions to be a sort of "Cyanogen Inc. for Productivity", licensing Remix OS to other hardware makers.  One can only help wonder, if successful, how long it might take Google to respond with a PC-friendly version of stock Android, and thus how long Remix would be desirable to license, but perhaps this is just the kick-in-the-pants Google needs to take their "Android Everywhere" ambitions to the one market they haven't even taken aim at yet.___

Well, maybe if the pitch was to big companies and involved a real budget for Facebook advertising, this might be worthwhile, but claims of bringing lots of new customers and big growth to your business just by "doing Facebook" are more bogus now than they've ever been.  It is fully acknowledged now that growing a large Facebook following without paying for advertising is nearly impossible for any small business just starting out now, and with organic reach down to single digit percentages, only a large following will generate much reach for you without paying.

The best chance for organic growth on Facebook, for most small businesses, requires more than some remote group of people working on contract to build you a Page and post some Status Updates.  It requires someone who really understands your brand, what it is now and what it aspires to be, as well as your business culture, target market, etc...  Even then, a smart social media strategy in this day and age doesn't put all its eggs in one basket and expect huge payouts.

Sadly, many small business owners interested in social media but not sure where to begin will see these commercials and they will become the face of social media marketing to them.  When they then spend good money on this, and the influx of new customers never happens, what then will they conclude?  That they were taken in by frauds, or that social media marketing itself is a fraud?

This is a case where the "Calling Out" has been well earned.

Past is Prologues: New Theory Says We All Live in a Parallel Past

Why does time go forward?  This deceptively simple question has haunted scientists for generations.  Einstein once called Past and Future, "Stubbornly persistent illusions."  His basic point, which any physicist to this day would find it difficult to argue, is that there is no obvious reason at all why time moves forward, just as prior to Newton there was no obvious reason why objects fell down instead of up (or not at all).

Why don't we remember the future, the way we remember the past?  Why does the future always seem to be "ahead of us" and the past always "behind us", when any traditional physics equally allows time to move in either direction with the same results?  A conventional explanation has been to blame it on entropy, but this is rooted in an ideology fewPhys... more »

Past is Prologues: New Theory Says We All Live in a Parallel Past

Why does time go forward?  This deceptively simple question has haunted scientists for generations.  Einstein once called Past and Future, "Stubbornly persistent illusions."  His basic point, which any physicist to this day would find it difficult to argue, is that there is no obvious reason at all why time moves forward, just as prior to Newton there was no obvious reason why objects fell down instead of up (or not at all).

Why don't we remember the future, the way we remember the past?  Why does the future always seem to be "ahead of us" and the past always "behind us", when any traditional physics equally allows time to move in either direction with the same results?  A conventional explanation has been to blame it on entropy, but this is rooted in an ideology few Physicists subscribe to anymore (an ideology which itself has roots in a decidedly religious worldview).

Some daring Physicists are challenging this and arguing that, while entropy is involved, the real culprit is gravity, which tends to pull disordered systems into ordered ones (pulling spacial debris into planets and planetoids, for example).  In this view, time does indeed flow in both directions, but only relative to a central point of low entropy, i.e. something akin to the singularity supposed to have been the source of the Big Bang.

Once the low entropy system breaks down into higher entropy, this occurs equally to both directions of time, with observers in each direction perceiving themselves to be moving "forward" relative to the earlier, low-entropy point.

What this really means, however, is much more interesting: it means that, to an observer in the timeline moving opposite to our own, our own timeline would appear to be in their farthest past, and vice versa.

So the next time someone tells you to stop living in the past, remember: you may not have a choice.___

Can Apple and Google 'Kill' Amazon?  Maybe.

Can Apple and Google 'Kill' Amazon?  Maybe.

Gone are the days when the tech giants represented discrete market segments, able to coexist in peace with one another.  While Google and Microsoft have long experienced tension over their competition for web dominance, there was a time when Apple, Google, and Amazon at least weren't really competing with each other.  Apple sold vertically-integrated ecosystems; Google specialized in Search and web services; Amazon was all about books and, later, online retail in general.

Nowadays, however, the lines are considerably blurred.  With content consumption "going digital" in books, music, movies, and more, Amazon now competes in a "Digital Retail Space" with Apple (with whom they have battled over eBook pricing) and Google (with whom they compete for Commercial Intent Search, the very type of Searches most likely to earn Google advertising money, but which many people now bypass Google to get straight from Amazon).

Unlike Apple and Google, which are massively profitable, Amazon can and does choose to run at-a-loss, sacrificing profit for market share and short term gains for long term supremacy.  Nor do they need to make actual money from digital sales or device sales, having the luxury instead to make these Value Adds for shopping,  shipping, and cloud services.

So how can Apple and Google compete?  By cutting Amazon off at their weakest point: platform power.  Apple already restricts the operation of any competing digital ecosystem on iOS while giving First Class Integration to their own ecosystem, and while Google limits this restriction in Android largely to competing app stores (unless side-loaded from outside the Play Store), they also control Search, and both can and have shown a willingness to favor Google Play, Barnes & Noble, and other Amazon competitors with prominent links.  (They are also developing a more direct method of attack on Amazon retail with Google Shopping and Google Express.)

So, while desktop users may increasingly be bypassing Google for Amazon, the situation is bound to disadvantage Amazon on mobile, where users are more likely to click the first Search result or buy digital goods directly from the respective "app stores".  Amazon is well aware of this threat, of course, and seeks to minimize it both through offering a compelling mobile experience through their apps and services, and by building their own mobile device ecosystem.

The latter had been going well enough, with Kindle readers being some of the most popular eReaders and more recently Kindle tablets earning a solid niche in that market, one that threatened even Google's dominance of Android for a time.  Not to mention the Fire TV and Fire TV stick, which may not be dominating the market but also can't be ignored alongside Chromecasts, Rokus, and Apple TV's.

Then came the Fire Phone.  The product of years and millions upon millions of dollars in development, the phone completely missed its prime market by eschewing cutthroat pricing and universal availability across carries and unlocked in favor of premium pricing and an AT&T Exclusive deal.

A successful Fire Phone, even if it didn't threaten the Apple-Google Duopoly in mobile, would have put pressure on the major platforms to become more "Retail Friendly", a valuable goal for a company whose core business is retail rather than devices and services.  iOS is built around "The Apple Lifestyle", while Android is built around Big Data Solutions.  Neither is built with retail shopping as a core consideration of the User Experience.  Fire Phone tried to change this by pushing 3D Screens, Firefly (a dedicated system for scanning items, similar to Google Goggles but decidedly Amazon flavored), and other approaches meant to improve the mobile retail experience.

Unfortunately, combined with the high cost and carrier exclusivity, this singular focus on retail shopping, something which most people still haven't fully embraced on their mobile devices, the Fire Phone came to be known in some circles as the "Shopping Phone".  One could as easily call a Nexus Smartphone a "Search Phone", but Search is a core capability smartphones must have, while better retail shopping is more in the area of "Nice, but not yet necessary."

Now it appears Amazon may not jump into the game again until 2016, by which time iOS and Android will have added hundreds of millions of new users, further locked-in their existing users through digital downloads and other "investments" that increase the cost of platform switching, and possibly encroached directly on Amazon's core retail business.

Amazon may be an online giant, but if they don't act aggressively and ambitiously to secure their future in the mobile landscape, and to further lure Searchers away from Google and straight to the Amazon homepage or app, they may soon find themselves squeezed between a Rock and a Hard Place.___

Google Wants More Wireless Spectrum Freed Up

Google, and several key allies, are pushing the FCC to free up parts of the 3.5 megahertz spectrum, which is virtually useless to wireless carries due to its limited range.  The idea would be to open at least part of the spectrum for anyone to use, similarly to how WiFi works.

If the FCC approves the idea, it would open a new, cheap source of wireless data.  For a web company like Google, which only makes money when you connect with their online services, the current wireless spectrum controlled by the carriers simply costs too much, with consumers still using over 90% of the data their mobile devices consume from stationary sources of internet like WiFi.  Unfortunately, the flip side to this is that they use very little data while truly mobile due to high data costs.

While the carriers are unlikely to full embrace an idea that undermines their profit margins by driving more traffic away from their own data channels, and possibly pressuring them to reduce their own data costs, web companies like Google and Facebook are pushing harder and harder for lower cost wireless alternatives.  Freeing up additional spectrum would be one step in this direction.

Google Cast for Audio

Google's Chromecast has quickly emerged as a frontrunner in the "Smart(er) TV" market, by allowing users to simply "cast" content from their favorite websites, browsers, and apps straight to their TV, with the content streaming handed off to the Chromecast stick while the device continues to function as a "remote control".  The underlying Google Cast technology is now also being built into new types of devices like Android TV.

Now Google wants to do the same for audio content, partnering with some major manufacturers to push Google Cast Ready speakers and other audio devices.

With online streaming music services quickly becoming the dominant forces in the music market, this technology only makes sense, though it may take longer to realize, as it can't simply be packaged as a cheap HDMI dongle but must instead be built... more »

With online streaming music services quickly becoming the dominant forces in the music market, this technology only makes sense, though it may take longer to realize, as it can't simply be packaged as a cheap HDMI dongle but must instead be built right into the audio technology itself.

Would you buy a Google Cast Ready audio device to enjoy this kind of service?

It may be a New Year, but the same old hoaxes from yesteryear are still popping up on Facebook, including this classic gem about how Facebook "owns" your content and the only way to stop them is to post a message on your Wall asserting your copyright protections.

Facebook does not own your stuff, so breathe easily.  Every social network requires a non-exclusive, non-transferrable license to share and distribute your content, otherwise the entire concept of the network would be implausible.  None of the major social networks, however, claim to own your content, and even if they did it would do you no good whatsoever to post this sort of message.
