Lift, a free iPhone app with Web and Android versions due out this year, lets you set daily goals and track your progress. Lift was a big help. But I worried that manually checking off my activities would grow tiresome. That’s where Chronos comes in. The free iPhone app uses your phone’s accelerometer, GPS, and other location services to track your activities for you
Nokia has just realised that Mobile Internet can be another industrial revolution.
Nokia CEO Stephen Elop has claimed that increased adoption of the mobile Internet in the developing world has the power to affect more people than the Industrial Revolution did in Europe during the 18th century.
Speaking at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Elop set out Nokia’s desire to get the next billion people to the Internet, and said the company is “proud of what we’re doing” in taking its smartphone innovations and incorporating them into cheaper products.
Yes, it does. Samsung is doing so well to excite mobile competition among Android producers such as Motorola, HTC and LG.
According to a report in the the Wall Street Journal, Google is concerned about Samsung’s dominance among Android smartphone manufacturers. Samsung’s power position could enable it to negotiate more favorable terms from Google for mobile advertising revenue, allow it to install more of its own custom-built apps on its smartphones and tablets (in turn, marginalizing Google’s own apps) or completely fork Android (like Amazon did with the Kindle Fire) to cut Google out of the picture entirely.
No doubt, it is a revolution! Will Google Glass kill the smartphone? Reinvent gaming? Steal the second screen from tablets? Alter the marketing and shopping landscape entirely?
Probably not completely, and not all at once (since the device won’t be commercially available until next year). But experts predict that the new product could be a game-changer along the lines of the iPhone—one that could send shockwaves across the entertainment, advertising, commerce, media and gaming worlds.

Social trade is increasing. Investors are looking for new opportunities to fill in this gap in order to gain bigger pie in the market. So, will it replace e-commerce or transform it into social trade? Lets take a look at this infographics!
According to this infographic, researched and developed by PayScale, the higher-ups are really not too keen on the social media movement at large, especially when it involves giving social media freedom to employees within the company. And the fear of negative information keeps employers running for a tight leash. Only half of companies have a formal social media policy, and 42% of companies surveyed nix all forms of social media activity at work. In the employers’ eyes, social media should be exclusively reserved for carefully managed brand promotion and professionally handled social recruiting.
Yes, you didnt hear wrong. This is new strategy from Facebook to strengthen their SME accounts via free limited ads.
Facebook is launching a programme to attract small businesses to its online advertising platform by offering free advertisement credits for the social network.
The company is offering 50,000 small companies up to £60 worth of advertising credits each.
It has also published a “toolkit” to help entrepreneurs understand online advertising and is running a series of regional business advice events across the UK in conjunction with the British Chambers of Commerce.
The scheme starts in the UK today and will also be rolled out in other European markets later this month.
Facebook, which has faced shareholder anger over a disastrous flotation on the stock market this month, will be hoping its latest charm offensive has better results.
Gregor Lawson, co-founder of Morphsuits, which has an £11m turnover, said his company has used Facebook since the fancy dress business was established in 2009.
Are you ready for a Facebook browser? As we are curious for Facebook Mobile nowadays, a web browser from Facebook might be fun too. It can really happen soon, if Mark Zuckerberg decides it one night, he can buy it before asking CFO or Facebook Board.
That’s exactly what could be on the way soon, according to one report from Mashable today. A “trusted source” that Facebook wants to buy Opera Software — manufacturers of the Opera web browser, which claims more than 200 million users worldwide.
The Facebook browser would include default menu bar plugins, further permeating Facebook into users’ general web experience, according to the report.
A custom browser would be a significant step toward Facebook becoming your web, as opposed to just an Internet site you visit and service you use. Opera’s mobile browser has received strong reviews online, meaning a functional Facebook browser using it could be even more powerful. Facebook has struggled to penetrate mobile use as deeply as many think it should be able to — and will need to in order to sustain long-term growth.
A Facebook browser would also bolster the newly public company’s competition with Google. Google Chrome recently became the web’s most-used browser, but Facebook’s gigantic user base of more than 900 million people would present a potential serious threat down the line. It would be interesting to see Facebook try to battle Google for browser dominance as Google+ struggles to play catchup in social networking.
Who’s buying Facebook stock, the CEO that thinks Dropbox is overvalued, Tumblr’s growing pains, and more from today’s TechCrunch Disrupt. Which companies should Yahoo acquire next? What’s the secret to a successful start-up ecosystem in New York city? When is Facebook stock worth the buy? Which companies should Yahoo acquire next? What’s the secret to a successful start-up ecosystem in New York city? When is Facebook stock worth the buy? These were just a few of the big questions discussed this morning at TechCrunch Disrupt in Manhattan’s Pier 94, a cavernous former ship terminal (complete with draft and sparrows flying overhead) that functions this week as the event’s home. Monday’s panels and presentations consisted of a veritable who’s-who of the tech and start-up world—with a big focus on the growing New York City start-up scene. On the investment side, Fred Wilson and David Tisch chatted about Facebook’s IPO and New York City innovation. Jason Goldberg, the founder of Fab.com, said he wants to create the next Ikea—not just the next Zappos-sized company. Michael Arrington said he’ll be buying Facebook stock today. And Brad Garlinghouse, a former executive at AOL, admitted to hearing rumors that Arianna Huffington was almost fired from The Huffington Post. Gossip or real, it is up to you to believe!
