Mobile app startups are failing like it’s 1999

Stop the madness! Today, seed stage startups can now get funded, release 1 or 2 versions of their app spread over 9 months, and then fail without making a peep.

The Future Isn't About Mobile; It's About Mobility - David Armano

Facebook is expected to announce their uniquely targeted mobile advertising model before the end of the month. Amazon is talking to Chinese manufacturer Fox Conn with ambitions of building their own mobile device to serve as a complement to Amazon’s considerable digital ecosystem of products and services. China itself has surpassed the US as the world’s dominant smartphone market with over a billion subscribers and roughly 400 million mobile web users. Advisory firm IDC predicts that by 2014 there will have been over 76 billion mobile apps downloaded resulting in an app economy worth an estimated thirty five billion in the same year.

Bon, ce n’est peut-être pas l’exacte vérité, puisqu’il est présenté sur le marché —y compris dans cette publicité du Super Bowl— comme plus qu’un simple smartphone. Je crois qu’il est censé faire à la fois téléphone, tablette tactile, plateau de cafétéria et bouclier anti-émeute. À en croire sa fiche technique, le Galaxy Note mesure 7,62 cm de large et près de 15 cm de long. Ces mesures semblent pompées directement sur la rubrique rencontres coquines de Craigslist, et je soupçonne que ce soit absolument délibéré de la part de Samsung. Le Galaxy Note est l’apogée comique (j’ose espérer!) Built-In Wireless Charging for Electronic Devices. #Lift12 : Quel mobile pour quel avenir. Toshiba builds scanner that can identify fruit without a barcode, yup (video) During our hurried supermarket sweeps, we're aiming for the Granny Smith , yet somehow always come away with French Jonagold.

That's why we're in awe of this new supermarket scanner from Toshiba-Tech that can identify individual species of fruit and veg from sight. Rather than a cashier keying in a produce code, a camera with optical pattern recognition technology filters out "visual noise" before identifying the genus of your apple by shape, surface pattern and coloration. It's also able to scan labels and coupons, but so far the database only contains a handful of items. It'll take over a year (when each thing has been harvested and scanned) to build a database necessary to make it commercially useful. Still, if you can't bear to wait those precious seconds as your server finds the right code for lettuce, head on past the break to watch your future in action.

Now the company's TI OMAP4-based television companion is rockin' some Ice Cream Sandwich madness, drawing curious Mobile World Congress attendees into the Texas Instruments booth for a look. We happened upon the device on the last day of the show, and we couldn't help but be impressed.
