Facebook Just Destroyed Google's Android Strategy

Facebook Just Destroyed Google's Android Strategy | The Perfect Storm Team Mobile | Scoop.it

Facebook just unveiled Home, a new app which more or less takes over the user experience on phones running Google's Android operating system.

 

The whole point of Android is to get people to use Google's services, like Gmail and Google Web search. Home basically kills that.




Stan Smith's insight:

I don't think this will destroy Google's android strategy at all, partly because of something I read in a different article ...

 

"Zuckerberg said the app will help Google.

 

"I think this is really good for Android," he told the audience at the launch event in Menlo Park, Calif. Developers do their best work on the iPhone first, but with Home, Facebook is putting Android first. If consumers want the Facebook Home experience, they'll have to get an Android phone.

 

In a statement, Google seemed to agree. "This latest device demonstrates the openness and flexibility that has made Android so popular," it said."

Make mobile more manageable

Make mobile more manageable | The Perfect Storm Team Mobile | Scoop.it

People are using phones and tablets more than ever before to get work done from anywhere – in the field, at home or while traveling.

Stan Smith's insight:

I find myself doing business more and more often while sitting under a tree in the shade while taking a break from a bike ride or while sitting on a sandy beach. 

 

Of course the advantage of opperating this way is that I no longer have to choose between living life doing the things I want to do or running a business.

 

How have things changed for you?

Run Your Small Business From Your iPhone - Essential Apps

Run Your Small Business From Your iPhone - Essential Apps | The Perfect Storm Team Mobile | Scoop.it

Being self-employed, I HATE to feel that I have to be at my desk for a prescribed number of hours, or to perform certain tasks. So, when I recently went travelling around Europe in my campervan, I had to find solutions to give me the freedom I wanted to enjoy my trip, but also to remain in control of my businesses, and not take my eye off the ball. I still use ALL of these in the everyday running of my business when I'm not in the office...which seems to be getting quite frequent!

10 Pro Camera Accessories for the iPhone 5

10 Pro Camera Accessories for the iPhone 5 | The Perfect Storm Team Mobile | Scoop.it
If you want to shoot profesional photos with your iPhone 5, you'll need the right case and all the proper lenses.
Stan Smith's insight:

This has to be where I focus next (no pun intended) ... I prefer using my digital camera because it has a 12 megapixel lens that takes really good pictures, but I like carrying an iPhone or iPod Touch because it fits in my pocket better. 

 

The real advantage isn't the size since most attachments end up making the iPhone the same size. It's being able to share the pics dirrectly without download cables.

 

What are you using? Any suggestions?

Facebook is in the process of acquiring startup Bang With Friends, according to multiple sources, in order to make a foray into the online dating space.
Stan Smith's insight:

Does this strike you as a desperate move to become more profitable for their investors or as a well thought out map of their future?

 

Another possibility of course is that they gut the start-up for talent, but this says they are going to operate it independently as they currently do Instagram.
