Internet TV’s Big Chance to Oust Cable Is Almost Here

 

There are so many people who have done this already, without even thinking about it.  They simply watch what they want to watch on their laptops or tablets.  A sign of things to come….from Wired.

“INTERNET TELEVISION’S TURNING point—the time when we can finally cut the cable cord—is almost here.”

Using Google+ and Pinterest Search for Long-Term Impact

Good social media advice from Brian Honigman on The Next Web about the long tail of social media posts.

“While there are many benefits to consistently strong content, one less obvious benefit is the continuing compounding success of old posts. Most people think that once a post is a day old it is pretty much dead, and that after a week it might as well never have happened. However, things online last forever and none of these posts actually disappear.”

Most Americans say the internet is actually making them smarter

 

Yes, it makes us smarter –

“It is sometimes difficult to reconcile the internet’s amazing contributions to society (Google search, Wikipedia, email, messaging) versus its dark side (YouTube comments, anonymous message boards, celebrity photo hacks). But overall, it seems the internet is indeed making us smarter.”

Rejoice: Tomorrow’s Tech Will Probably Stop Nagging Us | WIRED

Conceptually, the goal has always been to make technology invisible.  To many of us it is, though when we use the phrase “invisible” it means we just don’t notice it.  If we are speaking with somebody on a cell phone, we don’t notice the phone.  We think about the content, what we are saying, and the person we are speaking to.  The phone is still in our hand, unnoticed, but visible (unless the phone isn’t working properly!)

In the new IoT era, the technology will be more embedded, more functional – yet truly invisible.  This story from Wired is very accurate.

“How does one create an environment of “invisible technology”? Start by gaining a more complete understanding of all the facets that enable a product or service to operate. Break down any complexity by mapping each conversation that needs to take place between people and machines for the service to work well.”

Inside Pinterest: The Coming Ad Colossus That Could Dwarf Twitter And Facebook

An incredible story about Pinterest and its huge user base, where 80% of the users are women.  It’s huge, and the potential for revenue dwarfs that of many other popular social networks.  This is from Forbes.  “A visual social network where people create and share image collections of recipes, hairstyles, baby furniture and just about anything else on their phones or computers, Pinterest isn’t yet five years old, but among women, who make up over 80% of its users, it’s already more popular than Twitter, which has a market capitalization of more than $30 billion.”
