Richard Menta at mp3newswire has been reviewing potential ‘iPod killers’ since 2004 and he rounds up the potential challengers for Apple’s crown in the run up to the Christmas shopping season.
Of the 149 portable MP3 players he has reported on in the past two years, not one has yet managed to dent the popularity of Apple’s device, which has become a generic name for the MP3 player.
Apple boss Steve Jobs has laughed off fears over Microsoft’s threat to the iPod through its upcoming digital music player, Zune.
Nielsen//NetRatings has released a survey that shows the latest internet trends and technologies are still a mystery to many UK consumers.
The report shows 52% of British web users believe online and digital technologies make their life easier, but a similar percentage say they find them difficult to follow.
Quite rightly, there has been a lot of talk recently about the need for businesses to understand the harder business benefits of Web 2.0 and the impact that new features and tools can have on the bottom line.
However, the man who has steered Guardian Unlimited to numerous awards (and profitability) stresses the inherent value of online innovation for a brand which is expected to be pioneering.
BT has teamed up with American group Podshow to launch a UK version of the popular aggregation service for user generated content.
The site – an interesting link between social networking sites and traditional TV programming - provides a platform for individuals, record companies and media outlets to post and edit audio and visual content online.
If you’re watching the Web 2.0 scene in the UK then you might be interested in some thoughts on the annual d.Construct conference I attended last Friday.
On a scale of one to two point zero, how are the UK’s newspaper groups doing in terms of their adoption of Web 2.0 concepts, tools and approaches?
Ian Delaney, a UK journalist who blogs about Web 2.0 over at twopointouch.com, alerted me to a fine piece of analysis conducted by the BBC’s Robin Hammon, who has looked into this topic in some detail.
I’ve been dealing with a few clients of late, most of which have heard the ruckus around this newfangled Web 2.0 thing, and most of which want to do something Web 2.0 with their projects. Some want to implement blogs, others are interested in Wiki’s and podcasting, and surprisingly most of them want some Ajax features. The list goes on.
That’s really good because I’m always happy to talk to people about getting more out of the web, specifically around creating better and more valuable user experiences, but the problem I have (and which I communicate) is that Web 2.0 doesn’t just stop at implementing a blog engine, podcasts, a Wiki or Ajax.
Web 2.0 means different things to different people, yet it isn't just about the web, but is also about how your organisation works. Think intranet, as well as internet. Does your organisation work in a 2.0 way?
At the moment there seems to be three primary focuses around Web 2.0:
1) there are the technologists who are figuring out new technologies (there are many libraries and frameworks out there already).
2) there are the marketers and entrepreneurs, who are trying to figure out how use new 2.0 technologies and principles to generate profits, or help empower consumers (call them business people for now) in some way.
3) and finally, there are the users, who are increasingly using and enjoying the results of these new technologies.
But how does all that filter into your organisation in a useful way, feeding into your own innovation cycle?
It used to be that there was this top down content pyramid in operation (operated by traditional media and the big online players), where the quantity and quality of news / content was controlled by relatively fewer organisations.
This is changing rapidly, becoming flatter and more diverse (we’re not really interested in the why’s right now), which can either be seen as an opportunity or a threat. Organisations that embrace this change are going to benefit (think Murdoch buying MySpace), so the question then becomes how one capitalises on the opportunity...
Let's look at some of the key strategic issues to consider.
