Online Roundup Friday 21 December 2012

A little different this week. Some stimulus for thinking about your digital strategy.

Merry Christmas if you're in Australia, Happy Holidays if you're elsewhere in the world and wishing everyone, everywhere a fantastic New Years.

Thought provokers

A superb article about the disruption of print by digital and the thought processes necessary to tackle it. Many of the points are highly relevant to digital product development in general. It's quite long but well worth the read.

A great presentation about the state of the Internet and mobile technology.

Another great, graph-heavy pack showing the growth of digital.

A thought provoking piece on combining the strengths of the web and app worlds.

Online Roundup Friday 7 December 2012

Google's in a Dutch / Irish sandwich, Mobile traffic jams and Chile the wildcard in e-commerce spend.

Australia

The pressure is mounting on Google to play fair and pay their share of taxes on earnings in Australia.

Australia Post is still at it with Digital Post Australia.

Mobile data congestion in Australia is growing. Vodafone felt the pain a couple of years ago, now Telstra is feeling the same problem on its NextG 3G network.

Around the world

Get your business Android apps into your own Google Play store for your business?

Did you know that smaller tablets increase your online sociability?

The big spenders online in 2012. Notable inclusion of Chile in a group of the big population countries.

Online Roundup Friday 30 November 2012

e-Commerce infographics, Internet kill switches, the Microsoft Surface, Nuking the moon and Dumb ways to Die? Ecclectic bunch of articles.

Australia

The National Australia Bank joins the infographic craze with a report on the state of e-Commerce in Australia.

A song (and animated filmclip) to deliver a message about train safety by the Melbourne Metro has become an overnight hit. It's selling on iTunes!

Around the world

Sobering thought that freedom of speech can be impacted by an Internet Kill Switch in Syria.

The Microsft Surface Pro gets a price.

Print takes the loss as Mobile rises. Some stats from the US.

Rats and Mice

I don't know what to say about this. The ambition. The arrogance. Nuking the moon?

Online Roundup Friday 23 November 2012

A little quiet this week on the front line of interesting stuff. AC/DC, Facebook, iiNet, Nook and Evil Geniuses.

Australia

iiNet keeps at it with providing access to great (legit) digital content. Internode and iiNet (ISPs) are streaming a South Australian music festival live and in HD.

AC/DC (or Columbia Records) catch up with the Beatles and get online. Well, they get on iTunes.

An attempt at an Australian "Black Friday" type online retail event faced a few problems. What's the worst thing that could happen? In a world with zero switching costs (online retail) I can think of a few. Some good learnings here.

Around the world

The Barnes & Noble Nook e-book reader (what a mouthful) has gone on sale in the UK.

"Evil Genius Designs makes history again today with the national launch of the world’s first mobile video game that harnesses real-time payments data using the battery-powered Dynamics ePlate™ credit card device."

If someone could explain what this is I'd be grateful.

Facebook introduces carrier mobile payments in France.

The Roundup is back. Christmas is looming, craft is big and someone thinks we humans are ok with gesture driven TV.

Australia

I'm dreaming of a Mobile christmas. Google thinks it's going to be big.

Can digital shape a city?

Around the world

Who would have guessed how popular "craft" would have been on the Interwebs.

"A touchscreen you don't have to touch, which sounds like a bit of an oxymoron but you understand what I mean, makes a heck of a lot of sense," - Nope, not really. I think weigh of evidence suggest people like something tangible. Something to touch.

... and Bank of America joins the mobile payments space.
