The Google Zebra Algorithm Update and What You Can Do To Prepare

The Google Zebra Algorithm Update and What You Can Do To Prepare | Internet of Things - Company and Research Focus | Scoop.it

Recently, a certain search engine’s algorithm updates have not been so nice to most of the web. These Agents of G.O.O.G.L.E (yes I’m a Marvel fan!) arrive quietly, then tear relentlessly through the fabric of our very SEO souls! And what makes these updates even more frightening (and creepy) is these kill shots come in the form of cute and cuddly animals. I mean who would be afraid of a cute little Penguin…awe…or that cuddly Panda? And when was last time crowds ran screaming “The Hummingbird is coming…run for your lives!”? Never!

Well, the animal pain train is on its way again and this time its newest addition comes directly from the plains of Africa – code named  “Zebra” or as I like to call it “Your eCommerce store is toast…losers”!  Really, G.O.O.G.L.E should stop patronizing us and start giving these updates appropriately scary names like Gargoyle or Dragon, Sabertooth or Piranha! How many people would try to game the system when G.O.O.G.L.E Piranha is on its way? The question is, who will G.O.O.G.L.E Zebra hoof stomp with their so-called “Merchant Quality Update”?

Here's What Happens When Internet Providers Have Zero Competition

Here's What Happens When Internet Providers Have Zero Competition | Internet of Things - Company and Research Focus | Scoop.it
Hint: Exactly what you think....
Richard Platt's insight:

AT&T’s GigaPower Internet service, which launched in Cupertino on Monday, will cost consumers $110 per month if they want the top speed of up to 1,000 megabits (one gigabit) per second for downloads. That’s $40 more per month than AT&T charges in other cities where it offers the service, like Austin and Kansas City, Ars Technica’s Jon Brodkin reports.  - The difference is that in Austin and Kansas City, AT&T competes with Google Fiber, the search giant’s own superfast Internet network. In those places, both Google Fiber and AT&T offer gigabit service starting at $70 per month.

Why a strategy is not a plan

Why a strategy is not a plan | Internet of Things - Company and Research Focus | Scoop.it
Strategy: A History. By Lawrence Freedman. Oxford University Press USA; 751 pages; $34.95. Buy from Amazon.com EVERYONE, it seems, is in need of a strategy....
Richard Platt's insight:

Rarely do I recommend a book review in my blogging, but what I do know about is Strategy and this was an excellent review of a great book.    Here's my synopsis of the review

Strategy is relevant for politics, war as well as in business:

  1. The idea of knockout victory keeps getting knocked down (its actually a myth promoted by writers)
  2. Initial success is hardly ever decisive, 
  3. If you win power, you still have all the problems of trying to govern; if you have a run of success with some great products or an innovative business model, it does not mean you will stay on top for ever. 
  4. Strategy, it turns out, is really about trying to work out in a sensible way how to get from one stage to the next. (Moving from one Minimum Winning Game to the next).
  5. With each stage a new set of problems has to be negotiated before you move beyond it. 
  6. There is no end point: strategy is not simply a grander name for a plan, something that moves you forwards in predetermined steps. 
  7. As Helmuth von Moltke, a 19th-century German field-marshal, put it: “No plan survives contact with the enemy.” 
  8. As Mike Tyson, put it: “Everyone has a plan ’til they get punched in the mouth.” 
  9. A strategy that starts with objectives and works backwards is one that is likely to fail.


While strategy is especially in fashionable business books, it depends on using narrative both to explain a proposed course of action and recruit support for it.  - But stories taken out of context and conveniently edited can be an unreliable guide.


The author Sir Lawrence concludes that it may be better to look at strategy as a form of script, albeit one which incorporates the possibility of chance events, which attempts to anticipate the interactions of many players over a long time and which is open-ended, so expect the myriad twists and turns.  


The sobering lesson after 630 pages of wide-ranging erudition and densely packed argument is that although it is usually better to have some kind of strategy than not, unless you are prepared to adapt it as circumstances change it is unlikely to do you much good.

Microsoft Aims To Kill Google Chromebooks With $149 Windows 10 Laptops

Microsoft Aims To Kill Google Chromebooks With $149 Windows 10 Laptops | Internet of Things - Company and Research Focus | Scoop.it
Despite a lacklustre start, Chromebooks are becoming relatively popular in the super-budget end of the portable market. This has worried Microsoft for some time. After all, with a Google-centric experience, not to mention an operating system in the form of Chrome OS, there's little if anything to be gained here by Microsoft [...]
Richard Platt's insight:

They’re no MacBook killers and don’t expect them to play GTA V. According to tech rumour site www.Digitimes.com, these laptops are geared primarily towards emerging markets, education and the super-low end market, which includes users whose tasks are limited to web browsing, word processing and social media use.  

This is an important move for MSFT, as Google has a habit of making things work and with Chromebooks gaining traction, especially during the hard financial times of the last few years, it has to meet it head-on.  - The laptops are reported to use Intel’s Bay Trail platform – a low power processor that’s enjoyed much success in the tablet market with products such as the Asus Transformer Book and Lenovo ThinkPad 10. The initial launch will likely see an 11.6in model released – the same size as most current Chromebooks, but with Google already offering 13in and 15in Chromebooks, it’s highly likely Microsoft will follow suit.

Round 2 of Google - WSJ spat: Google responds to the Journal's report on FTC

Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) on Friday shot back at Wall Street Journal for carrying a report, which mentioned that the Federal Trade Commission did not tacking action
Richard Platt's insight:

Google countered the Journal’s reports. The ‘Wall Street Journal,’ owned by Australian-born CEO of News Corp., carried a report that FTC did not sue the company despite recommendations from staff.

“One of your newspapers, the Wall Street Journal, accused Google of wielding undue political influence,” said Google.  - Google claims the tech firm visited the WhiteHouse aimed at assisting the HealthCare.gov website and for YouTube interviews of the President.  - Instead of a serious response, Google has opted for a funny and sarcastic response, which clearly sent a message to the WSJ for bringing in more credibility for its reports.

WSJ and Google spat unfolds "Microsoft visited the White House more than we did"

WSJ and Google spat unfolds "Microsoft visited the White House more than we did" | Internet of Things - Company and Research Focus | Scoop.it
Earlier this week, The Wall Street Journal published a critique of Google’s close-ties with the White House. Today, Google responded to some of the allegations in the piece, taking the time to clarify some of the points, as well as pointing the finger at other companies.
Richard Platt's insight:
A Long-Standing Beef:  Google and News. Corp., the Rupert Murdoch-owned parent company of the Wall Street Journal, have a long, combative history, and this latest spat is just a continuation of it. The main beef in the WSJ’s report relates to meetings specifically in 2012, around the time Google faced an anti-trust investigation from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) over allegedly favoring its own products in search results. The FTC ultimately voted to settle with Google in 2013.

cookers (via partnerships with Mr. Coffee and Crock-Pot).
Richard Platt's insight:

Excellent Q&A with our Darkhorse favorite firm for the ioT - interesting


Q: At this point, how much of your WeMo marketing efforts have to go toward consumer education?

A: As the leader in that space, we are educating people about how to use these products and how they can benefit your life. If you go to WeMo.com, that’s a great example of the many things that are available to help educate the marketplace. We’re doing a lot of education in the marketplace -- not only in general marketing, but much more importantly in-store and in thought leadership across the board.


Q: Why establish a WeMo brand vs. using Belkin as a home automation brand?

A: WeMo was a product that was developed as a Belkin brand. It’s just in a slightly different space than the Belkin brand. Belkin is in the space of “We don’t make your devices. We make your devices better.” It’s a slightly different space [than in home automation]. It’s a different consumer premise. So we made a decision to pull WeMo out as its own stand-alone brand, and give it the focus attention and resources to blossom in the marketplace.

The partnerships with Twitter and Apple are key components too. It’s all part of a broader vision being driven from the top at IBM to transform the company for more modern enterprise requirements.

A key piece of this approach is building a platform play across the different categories and IBM wants very much to attract developers to this vision. It appears to be pushing the correct buttons and putting all the right pieces in place, but it remains to be seen whether it can really win the hearts of developers to really drive the company’s transformation.

Intel's Rumored Acquisition Of Altera Could Protect Its Massive Monopoly In Servers

Intel's Rumored Acquisition Of Altera Could Protect Its Massive Monopoly In Servers | Internet of Things - Company and Research Focus | Scoop.it
The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday that chipmaking giant Intel is in talks to buy Altera. If this deal goes through, it'll be one of the largest deals Intel has ever made -- Altera's market cap stood at $13.36 billion when markets closed on Friday. But this deal is well worth it, said technology analysts Patrick Moorhead, as it will help protect [...]
Richard Platt's insight:

"Some companies have begun plugging Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) chips made by Altera–and by its chief competitor Xilinx–into their data centers. FPGAs are reprogrammable chips that can run specific tasks faster than Intel’s processing chips on their own.


Companies like Microsoft and Baidu have begun using Altera’s FPGAs along with Intel’s processing chips to good results. Intel is already the manufacturer of Altera’s FPGAs, but by buying the company, Intel could more closely integrate the FPGA onto its chip and get even better performance". 


Another factor Intel could be considering is that companies running big servers like Microsoft and Baidu could integrate FPGAs with ARM-based processing chips — the ARM chip architecture stands as the possible main threat to Intel’s x86 domination in the server industry. “If Intel owns Altera, the chance of that happening is 0%,”

LG has developed the transparent screen technology and the only delay is due to the limitations of the factory equipment for mass production. Once the testing phase is over, LG may roll out its transparent display phones in the near future.  Both of these design initiatives by both Samsung and LG are driven by TRIZ forecasting methods.
