Last week-end we had the opportunity to have a round table discussion with the Minister of Employment and Social Development and Minister for Multiculturalism of Canada, the Honourable Jason Kenney. The meeting was organized by Winston Chan and CYBF (Canadian Youth business Foundation).
Lately on the western countries (Europe -except Germany- & North America) a curios phenomenon has been taking place: unemployment is relatively high (including youth), on the contrary, there are many jobs offers being left open (I.e not attended). So, what’g going on?
With that, Mr. Kenney...
Last week we were present on the Telecoms Tech World in London. It was a great conference! It had an awesome line-up of speakers and good participants all-over. In our case we had a great chance to let our work be known, do some serious networking and last but not least, a good opportunity to get to know -the incredibly great city of- London. And of course, we promoted London Icons, to facilitate the visit to this amazing city.
We hope to have an opportunity to visit this city again, soon. :-)
Next week in London UK, on Nov 26th to 27th, Telecoms Tech World will happen. Mollejuo will be there presenting our apps and technology. Naturally we are very exited to visit this great and unique city, which is one of the first we deployed for the City Icons series via the London Icons App.
As the name implies, Telecoms Tech world is a conference themed around, well, the telecom world, an industry being challenged by the big changes brought by the nascent apps industry. Ironically, the thing -apps- that has helped the most to increase traffic on the operators (which is a good), is also the thing...
Two days ago a little part of the internet went wild because a woman named Cecilia Abadie had a ticket for wearing Google Glass while driving. That’s the short history of it, you can check it out below.
The devil is on the details
Well, the thing is that she was ticketed for two infractions:
Going over the speed limit, thus the police stoping her.
Wearing Google Glass
For the reason number two, below is the law that covers (frames) it:
27602. (a) A person shall not drive a motor vehicle if a television receiver, a video monitor, or a television or video screen, or any other...
MarketLink is a program established for companies to meet companies. In that regard, Mollejuo has been fortunate to be invited to participate in one of Marketlink’s rounds of meetings. Thus, we’ll be there next week (Nov 5th-6th), in beautiful San Diego. It has been some years since we’ve been there and it’s never late to visit that great city again.
If you’re around or would like to meet with us, drop us a line, our stay will be short, even thought we would like otherwise. :-)
Lately there has been some developments within the telco world that will continue to impulse the usage and adoption of smartphones anywhere around the world.
Online vs offline
As we have dwell before, there is a big argument against and for deploying mobile apps to be used offline (i.e. not using internet connection). Developers have gone great lengths into making software that can be used while being in offline mode. From our part, we decided to stick with online, which at that time, while being a limitation to use our apps, eventually -our analysis showed us- roaming charges will drop...
When human beings embark on a new endeavour it's natural to initially feel that it's impossible to accomplish it. As time goes by and this endeavour starts to evolve, things begin to look achievable, then the mood changes from impossible to "if I would have known that!". Hopefully, after the happy ending of the endeavour, we'll laugh at what we saw as impossible in the first place. It's human nature, it's called: learning.
I mention the previous as a couple of weeks ago the NYT published a very interesting article (great read!) describing the challenges Apple engineers had, in order to bring...
We will not talk about the current Apple TV, which Apple have said numerous times, is a hobby, we'll talk about the numerously rumoured Apple TV set (or whatever its final form would be). Let's start by saying that is quite possible that such a device is already designed and built, the problem is there's no content for it, and there lies the big issue.
In the 50s there was this novel invention called TV, however there wasn't a lot of programming (content) available for it. If there's no programming, how can manufacturers sell the TV devices? (classic chicken and egg dilemma),...
Much has been written about the fall of Blackberry (BB). On our side we even speculated that maybe since they were doing so well not long ago, it was difficult for them to argue any changes in direction. Well, nothing can be farthest from the truth. The inside scoop went outside last week-and thanks to an excellent article from the Globe and Mail.
We have to start first by explaining how BB (founded as Research in Motion: RIM) worked. Since almost its inception it had two leaders, Jim Balsillie (the salesman) & Mike Lazaridis (the geek). Up until last year, the company operated...
Some time ago we speculated on the impact the proposed Metaio's AR chip could have on the industry. As we said earlier, any improvement in AR is good for everybody. Lets take a brief look at the new co-processors, X8 from Motorola and M7 from Apple. All of this, from an AR point of view.
First and foremost, different from Metaio's AR chip, these two new chips are generic co-processors. So, obviously they won't focus on the AR aspect that Metaio's is doing. That said, these two new co-processors handle many of the chores involved to make AR work in our phones, like: Accelerometer,...
