I bumped into James Whatley from SpinVox at CTIA today. We had a bit of a blog love hugging session and just as he got familiar with me – I said, “SpinVox is crap!”
He was taken aback, but only for a second and hit me with a “you must try it again it’s been [...]
Mobile advertising isn’t only hot, it’s on fire. First Vodafone and Telefonica get a taste of Amobee and now Telenor is going all the way and launching its own Mobile Advertising Agency.
It follows the acquisition of Active Loop Marketing in Norway and N’volve in Denmark. So they have been combined to make More Mobile Relations.
First, Mike Butcher from TC UK twittered that SpinVox had USD 100 million in funding. The Rudy de Waele just twittered that Modu also got USD 100 million in funding – or they are both just about to get it.
Has the world gone mad?
These evaluations are based on speculation and even though I am a [...]
Yet another company touting visual mobile technology has come out of the wood work. This time it’s the HongKong based MyClick.

I was surprised to see that [...]
There is a great post on WAP Review about the Sprint OpenWeb browser. This got me thinking about the transcoding ecosystem. I might be wrong, but I am starting to think that with content adaptation or transcoding, user input is necessary for the manipulation of the content from online to mobile to work.
But first, back [...]
Since writing about Kimia federated mobile search yesterday a few media agencies have asked me about the implications of federated mobile search. One newspaper also wanted to discuss the potential it had for creating spin-off news services via RSS feeds purely for mobile. In order to provide more feedback on this area, I thought I would publish a report I published [...]
Mobile Porn IS Mobile Content
Alexander Trommen COO Minick, spoke honestly and openly about the services it enables for operators in Europe. I nearly had a heart attack when he started quoting stats of full feature length mobile porn films.
Don’t get me wrong. Minick is not a pure mobile porn enabler or content provider. It provides [...]
One of the most impressive presentations at Web 2.0 in Berlin came from Rui Mascerenhas Head of Multimedia at Sonaecom (Optimus Portugal).
He didn’t beat around the bush and highlighted the development of mobile and trends in the mobile or converged space over the past ten years. It proved fascinating food for thought and Rui touched [...]
