Mary Meeker: Mobile Internet Will Soon Overtake Fixed Internet

Mary Meeker: Mobile Internet Will Soon Overtake Fixed Internet
Mary Meeker of Morgan Stanley isn’t just any Internet analyst. She was covering the sector when the brokerage firm was the lead underwriter for Netscape Communications’ initial public offering in 1995, was dubbed the “Queen of the Net” by Barron’s magazine in 1998 and was covering the space in 2004, when Morgan Stanley helped launch the Google IPO. Now a managing director at Morgan Stanley and head of the global technology research team, she has released her latest massively detailed “State of the Internet” report, which she has been putting out periodically since 1995. She presented the report during an event this afternoon at Google, which was streamed live as part of the Events@Google series (the presentation is embedded below). And what does Meeker see in her crystal ball this year? Two overwhelming trends that will affect consumers, the hardware/infrastructure industry and the commercial potential of the web: mobile and social networking.

Mary Meeker's Internet Trends: The Future is Mobile - ReadWriteS Internet analyst Mary Meeker from Morgan Stanley presented a report on Internet trends at Events@Google yesterday. Echoing those trends identified in her 2009 presentation, the report focuses on the rapid and continued growth of the mobile internet and social networking. Claiming that the world has entered the fifth major technology cycle, Meeker predicts that this cycle will be marked by the adoption of mobile Internet technologies, as the trends of "3G + Social Networking + Video + VoIP + Impressive Mobile Devices" converge. Meeker predicts the mobile Internet will be bigger than desktop in five years, noting that by comparing iPhone and iPod touch versus AOL and Netscape users, that mobile Internet is ramping up at a rate far faster than desktop did. Furthermore, she argues that 3G coverage has reached a global inflection point, meaning it is available to at least 20% of the world's cellphone users.

WebApp vs Applications : Leurs usages... leurs légitimités Par Nicolas d'Hueppe, Directeur France de Cellfish Media Depuis son arrivée sur le marché, près de 2,8 millions d’iPhone auraient été vendus en France, dont 2,2 millions en 2009.

Creating the Best Call to Action | Marketing Zeus Creating the Best Call to Action by: Charles Forster | October 28, 2011 Does your website need calls to action? In short, yes. As the name implies, a call to action is a button or a link that leads your visitors to take some sort of action, whether it’s to read an article, buy a product, download a free report, or sign up for your newsletter. How to create the best calls to action 1. A good call to action does two things: It tells the visitor what they’re getting when they click on something, and it gives them a sense of urgency and excitement. If you’re running a promotion, webinar, or event, you can also build in a sense of urgency with limited seats, a limited amount of units, a beta only invite for software, etc. 2. What good is a perfectly crafted call to action if no one sees it to click on it? Another note on placement, make sure to not bombard your visitor with calls to action. 3. You want your visitors’ eyes to go right to your call to action. Examples: Dropbox Skype Spotify
