It’s pretty ballsy to call your sexting app Poke. That was my first reaction to the news last week that Facebook had launched a clone of Snapchat, the trendy smartphone app that lets you send photos and videos that self-destruct after a few seconds. Like most people born before the 1990s, I’m not a Snapchat user, and I’ve long assumed the worst about the app—that combining cameras; young people; and secret, self-destructing messages could only mean trouble.

Yet TechCrunch’s Jordan Crook persuasively argues that Snapchat has gotten a bad rap. Rather than sexting, teenagers are more likely using the app to safely explore the sort of silly, unguarded, and sometimes unwise ideas that have always occupied the teenage brain. Give teens credit for wanting to communicate with their friends in a manner that won’t haunt them forever. In other words, they’re chatting with Snapchat precisely because it’s not like chatting with Facebook.

If you think about Snapchat this way—as an app that young people are using for much more than sexting—Facebook’s interest in it becomes obvious. Indeed, Snapchat should scare the bejeezus out of Facebook. Here’s a company that’s winning millions of young adherents to a mode of online communication that is utterly alien from Facebook’s public, permanent interactions. Mark Zuckerberg can’t afford to let that happen. In order to realize its hundred-billion-dollar dreams, Facebook needs to forever dominate all of the world’s social interactions. Wherever two or more people are communicating—whether it’s by text, video, pictures, or through games or gifts—Facebook needs to be a part of their conversation. It needs to be especially vigilant against usurpers of young people, the vanguard that decides who’ll rule tomorrow’s Internet.

Hence, Facebook had to make Poke. Facebook created the app in just 12 days, reportedly after Snapchat turned down Facebook’s attempts to acquire the firm. Poke is ridiculously similar to Snapchat, a feature-for-feature copy that would make Xerox blush. Imitation isn’t unusual for Facebook; as I argued last year, Facebook constantly “roams the tech universe in search of interesting technology, then mercilessly assimilates all the best stuff into its ever-larger catalog of features.” Over the last couple years it has copied the defining ideas behind Foursquare, Twitter, Google+, Groupon, GroupMe, Instagram, Quora — and now Snapchat.

You might fault Facebook for cloning other companies’ ideas, but I don’t think mimicry is so bad. All tech firms, from Apple to Microsoft to Google, get ahead through a mix of innovation and inspiration. The problem with Poke isn’t that Facebook had to copy Snapchat. The real problem—and it’s a big one—is that Facebook didn’t think of building something like Snapchat long ago, all by itself.

After all, the idea of conversations that leave no trace isn’t something Snapchat invented. It’s an age-old form of interaction, the stuff of spy novels and soap operas and classroom notes meant to be eaten after reading. The fact that it took someone else to invent an app for this kind of innately appealing chatter suggests that Facebook isn’t thinking expansively enough about its main product: people. Facebook’s success depends on its ability to predict how you, me, and everyone we know are going to want to behave online in the future. If it missed the inherent utility of something as simple as Snapchat, what other shifts in online behavior will Facebook never see coming?

To be sure, predicting human behavior is a tall order. We’re all fickle and prone to fads, and young people’s fervor for Snapchat could wane tomorrow. (See Chatroulette.) That’s precisely why Facebook likes to think of itself as a “platform,” not a product. Facebook keeps the “social graph” of all of our connections and it leaves it to other companies to build interesting products using that data. Snapchat’s very success shows that Facebook’s platform strategy is working quite well. The only reason that the app could acquire millions of users in a few months’ time is because Snapchat spread through each of its users’ Facebook friends. Instagram and Pinterest, the two other recent social-networking successes, also benefited tremendously from their users’ Facebook’s connections.

The trouble for Facebook is that when these Facebook-enabled apps get too big, they threaten the giant itself. Every photo that people were sharing through Instagram was a dagger at the heart of Facebook, the world’s largest photo site. That’s why Facebook attempted to copy Instagram—see its Camera app—and then had to buy it. Similarly, every message that you send to your Facebook friends through Snapchat is a lost opportunity for Facebook. That’s why Facebook had to squash it.

The fact that Facebook could build Poke in less than a couple weeks shows that it knows how to move quickly when it sees an opportunity. But Poke is already losing to Snapchat in the app standings. Like Facebook’s failed imitations of Instagram and Quora, Poke’s quick decline shows that if Facebook wants to stay on the vanguard of online communication, it needs to act even before it sees an opportunity—by the time somebody else has had success with something, Facebook’s version isn’t going to catch on.

How can Facebook do this? I think Zuckerberg ought to stand up a skunkworks team — a group of engineers, designers, and product managers whose sole mission is to create lots of small, interesting apps that offer new takes on online communication. (Or Facebook could buy Betaworks, the New York-based startup that already does this very well. In the last few years, that team has created Chartbeat, Bitly, and the new Digg, three sites that mine social and Web data to create novel experiences.) Facebook is never going to be able to anticipate all of the fads that hit the Web, nor should it make it its mission to do so. But such a team could at least try to come up with novel social networking ideas—because if Facebook doesn’t try, someone else will, and by the time Facebook recognizes the threat, it will be too late to do anything about it.

I don’t know if such a team would have created something like Snapchat. But considering how quickly it slapped Poke together, they very well could have. Facebook shouldn’t be ashamed that it had to copy Poke. But it should be ashamed that it never even tried to invent it. 

Apple iPhone SmartWatch in 2013

Apple and Intel are working together to create a Bluetooth-equipped smartwatch in 2013, according to one Chinese technology news source.

Tech site TGbus says the watch would connect to the iPhone, allowing you to remotely operate the phone from your wrist. That means you could send out text messages, answer calls, or even update your Facebook status on the device while your iPhone is in a pocket or charging nearby.

An iPhone-compatible smartwatch is certainly in a high demand. Earlier this year a Kickstarter for the Pebble smartwatch raised over $10 million in funding from 70,000 people who want one of the watches, $500k of that funding raised during the company’s first day on Kickstarter’s website.

Pebble has yet to ship to customers, but the company is allowing customers who didn’t support the Kickstarter to pre-order the watch now for $150.

Another smartwatch, made by Martian, is expected to be available early next year. That watch is designed to look more like traditional watches, adding a small LED screen with users can see texts, as well as notifications from Facebook, Twitter, and Gmail.

The watch can also accept calls, and has Siri-integration.

Apple recently discontinued the square iPod nano, which many Apple fans have previously used to create their own Apple-branded smartwatches.

Would you buy an Apple-branded smartwatch, or any other brand? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.


Continuing with its blitzkrieg of all things Windows, Microsoft held an event for Windows Phone 8 in San Francisco today. Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore and Steve Ballmer – and, yes, Jessica Alba – announced new features and where people can get their hands on Windows Phone 8 devices this November.

Apps by the numbers:
  • Belfiore announced that the Windows Store now has over 120,000 apps, and that “hundreds” more are added each day.
  • Apps are available in 50 languages and 191 countries.

Live Apps:
  • Belfiore demoed new Live Apps, which are a cross between the company’s signature (resizable!) Live Tiles and full applications that can integrate with the Wallet, the company’s payments solution, and other “hubs” (groups of apps or people).

  • Using the Live Apps framework, developers are able to build versions of the app that can appear on the lock screen. The example given was a Facebook-equipped lock screen that shows different Facebook photos each time the phone is unlocked.

  • “Think about how many times you take your phone out of your pocket, you turn it on, and you see your lock screen, and you’re seeing that same old image that you put on there months ago. Kinda boring.”
  • “The new lock screen is going to make that phone feel so much more personal, because each time you take it out, it’s going to feel that much more relevant to you.”

New Apps:
  • Belfiore announced a slew of new apps, Angry Birds “Roost,” PayPal, Twitter, The Weather Channel, Photosynth, Chase, CNN, Angry Birds Star Wars, Where’s My Water, and more.
  • Microsoft has also worked with Facebook to bring a new, Live Apps-capable version of the social networking app to Windows Phone 8 devices.

  • “We think that, with the launch of these apps, we will be at a point where we have 46 of the top 50 most heavily-used apps on other platforms on Windows Phone.”

  • Pandora will be shipping with Windows Phone 8 “early in 2013.” Microsoft has partnered with the company to provide Windows Phone 8 users with one year of ad-free music.

  • The new Skype app is “always on,” meaning that it’s ready to receive a call or message at any time. Belfiore claims that the service is able to do this without draining the phone’s battery and constantly running in the background.

Data Sense:
  • With Data Sense, Microsoft has built a system in the cloud and on the phone client that compresses every Web page browsed. The process sounds similar to that used by Amazon’s Silk browser, which shipped with the Kindle Fire, and the Opera browser available on Mac, Windows, iOS, and Android.
  • The feature helps users find WiFi hotspots that they can use instead of relying on cellular data.
  • Belfiore says that Data Sense will automatically adjust the way that the device uses data when a user nears their monthly data limit.

  • Data Sense users, Belfiore says, were able to access 45 percent more Web pages with the same data limit as people that don’t have the feature.
  • Microsoft is working with carriers to deploy Data Sense, and the first company to support the feature is Verizon.

Kid’s Corner:
  • Kid’s Corner, in a nutshell, creates a separate “place” on your phone specifically for kids. Parents will be able to allow or block apps and games from appearing in Kid’s Corner, which is accessed via swiping to the left in the lock screen.

  • Belfiore brought Jessica Alba out to talk about how much she loves Kid’s Corner and Windows Phone 8 as a whole (and to plug The Honest Company’s upcoming app).

  • Rooms is a new feature that allows users to group and interact with certain people on their phone more easily. Windows Phone 8 will ship with a pre-installed “Family” room, but Belfiore says that users can create and define their own rooms as well.

  • Through Rooms, users can share notes and calendars with each other – Belfiore specifically cited a running grocery list that he and his wife use to stay on top of what they need to buy.
  • Rooms work across platforms; an iPhone user that is added to a Room can enjoy similar features to users on Windows Phone 8.

  • “This year, Windows, from the PC to the tablet and the phone and the Xbox, will not only look and feel the same way, but will also work together in concert in a lot of compelling ways.” 

  • With Windows Phone 8, you can move your documents, photos, and music across all your devices wherever you are, Belfiore says, and the “key player” to all of that is SkyDrive.

  • Belfiore took a dig at Apple’s iCloud, saying that its SkyDrive service “isn’t just for photos and video – it’s the first cloud service that fully integrates and syncs your Office documents.”

  • Next up came Lenses, Microsoft’s kinda-sorta Answer to Instagram. Share on Facebook, Twitter, on email, NFC. In the background, a full-resolution version of the photo is uploaded to SkyDrive.

  • SkyDrive gets you started with the most free storage of any service, with 7GB and “gives you complete control over your photo content,” Belfiore says. He compared this to iCloud and Photo Stream, which will only store up to 1,000 photos for 30 days or less.

On being late, and hardware:
  • Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer took the stage to explain why the company might be a bit late to the smartphone wars, saying: “We had a very different perspective on what a smartphone can be. We didn’t want to build just a single phone for all of us. We wanted to build a phone that could be unique for each of us.”

  • Windows Phone 8 devices will go on sale this weekend.
  • Verizon will sell the Windows Phone 8X and the Lumia 822 by Thanksgiving, and it will sell Samsung’s Ativ Odyssey exclusively some time in November.
  • T-Mobile will be selling Nokia’s Lumia 810 and the Windows Phone 8X.

  • AT&T has the exclusive on the new Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 devices from Nokia, and will also be selling HTC’s Windows Phone 8X.
  • Microsoft will be selling every Windows Phone 8 device in its 65 Microsoft Stores across the country.

Battle of TABLETS

Google announced on Monday its brand new 10-inch Nexus 10 tablet, which is being touted as “the world’s highest resolution tablet display.” Although it may beat competitors such as the Surface, iPad 4and Kindle Fire HD in terms of screen resolution, you may be wondering how it stacks up in other areas.

For starters, it runs on Android 4.2 (still called Jelly Bean), so it one-ups the Kindle Fire HD and its Android 4.0 operating system in terms of software. It’s reasonably priced too — its 16GB model is $100 less than the iPad, but it’s still about $100 more than the Kindle Fire HD.
One major drawback to the Nexus 10 is that it will only be available online — at least for now — so consumers looking to give the tablet a test drive in a store before purchasing will be out of luck.

To make your purchasing decision easier based on what specs you’re looking for, we pitted the Nexus 10 against Microsoft’s Surface, the iPad 4 and Kindle Fire HD in a nicely-packaged chart below.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Coming on the heels of its launch of Windows 8 and the Surface tablet, Microsoft has scheduled an event in San Francisco to kick off its new software for mobile phones.
On Friday, Microsoft started selling the Windows 8 operating system for desktops, laptops and tablet computers. Machines with Windows 8 started going on sale as well.

That operating system borrowed its look from Windows Phone, meaning Microsoft now has a unified look across PCs and phones — at least if people take to Windows 8. The company has also made it easy for developers to create software that runs on both systems with minor modifications.

Monday's event, at an arena in San Francisco, is devoted to Windows Phone 8.

The first phones from Nokia, Samsung and HTC are expected to hit store shelves next month, though many details on prices, carriers and exact dates aren't available yet. Microsoft may announce some of that Monday. CEO Steve Ballmer hinted at Monday's event when he spoke at a Windows 8 kick-off event Thursday.

"I can't wait to show you how we've really reinvented the smartphone around you," Ballmer said.
Windows Phone 8 will face heavy competition from the iPhone and devices running Google's Android software. People who already have Windows phones won't be able to upgrade to the new version.

Apple Software,reatil chiefs in overhaul

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Apple Inc CEO Tim Cook on Monday replaced the heads of its software and retail units in the company's biggest executive shake-up in a decade following embarrassing problems with its new mapping program and unpopular store-related decisions.
Software chief Scott Forstall, who oversaw the launch of the flawed mapping software and much criticized Siri voice-enabled assistant, will leave Apple next year.

Forstall, seen as a polarizing figure inside Apple, had been billed as one of the future candidates to take the top job at Apple. He was the executive behind the panned Apple Maps app that the company announced with much fanfare in summer.

Apple said in a statement that retail chief John Browett "is leaving," without elaborating; that a search for his replacement is underway; and the retail team would report directly to Cook. Browett had riled up the retail store staff when he reduced the number of employees in his unit.
The departures come a little more than a year into Cook's tenure as chief executive. Cook replaced the late Apple founder Steve Jobs, considered one of the best executives of all times by many analysts and investors.

"These changes show that Tim Cook is stamping his authority on the business," Ben Wood, analyst with CCS Insight, said. "Perhaps disappointed with the Maps issues, Forstall became the scapegoat."
Apple upended the tech industry with the release of its iPhone smartphone in 2007. But the company is facing increasing competition from search giant Google, whose Android has become the world's most popular mobile software, as well as from Amazon.com Inc, Microsoft and Samsung.
"Competition is moving much faster to be more Apple-like," said Tim Bajarin, president of technology research and consulting firm Creative Strategies. "They're finding they need to streamline the management team in order to get things going faster."

Apple's launch of its own mapping service in September, when it began selling the iPhone 5 and rolled out its updated iOS 6 software, led to widespread user complaints, particularly since it replaced the popular Google Inc Maps.

Apple's Siri personal assistant software also came under a lot of criticism, including for not providing information on business location, when it was launched last year.
Both the services were introduced with much fanfare by Forstall, who had supervised their development as senior vice president of iOS software.

The executive changes hand over substantially more responsibility to Eddy Cue, the head of Internet Software and Services who helped create the iTunes music store and App Store. The 23-year Apple veteran already is in charge of Cloud services and will take on Apple Maps and Siri. Craig Federighi will oversee Apple's mobile iOS software as well as its OS X Mac software, Apple said.

Putting the mobile and personal computer software teams under the same manager could improve operations within the company, particularly as the capabilities and features of smartphones and PCs increasingly converge, said analysts.

"If you have two different heads, you have two different fiefdoms," said BGC Partners analyst Colin Gillis.

Another executive who will get extra responsibility under the shake-up is Jonathan Ive, Apple's head of industrial design, who has played a key role in Apple's success by imbuing its gadgets with a distinct look and feel.

That magic touch could help reinvigorate the look of Apple's software, which has been criticized by some technology observers, Gillis said.


Shares of Apple, the world's largest publicly traded company by market value, have declined 14 percent in the past month since reaching a 52-week high of $705.07 in September.
Browett, former CEO of British electronics retailer Dixons, took over as senior vice president of Apple's retail stores earlier this year, replacing Ron Johnson, who went on to become the CEO of JCPenney.
"I think ultimately they probably discovered that his experience with Dixons didn't translate that well to the Apple stores and he just probably wasn't the right fit," Bajarin of Creative Strategies said.
Apple, which described Monday's moves as a way to increase "collaboration" across its hardware, software and services business, said Forstall will serve as an advisor to Cook until his departure.
Last week Apple delivered a second straight quarter of disappointing financial results, and iPad sales fell short of Wall Street's targets, marring its record of consistently blowing past investors' expectations.

What’s PageRank ?

PageRank is Google’s system for ranking web pages. A page with a higher PageRank is deemed more important and is more likely to be listed above a page with a lower PageRank.

Google describes PageRank:

PageRank relies on the uniquely democratic nature of the web by using its vast link structure as an indicator of an individual page’s value. In essence, Google interprets a link from page A to page B as a vote, by page A, for page B. But, Google looks at more than the sheer volume of votes, or links a page receives; it also analyzes the page that casts the vote. Votes cast by pages that are themselves “important” weigh more heavily and help to make other pages “important.”

In other words, Google conducts “elections” in which each web page casts votes for web pages with hyperlinks to those pages. But unlike a democracy a page can have more than one vote and links from pages with high PageRank are given more weight (according to their ranking) and thus help to improve the targets’ PageRank.

See the PageRank of a page with the PageRank meter in the Google Toolbar (an advanced feature). The more green the higher the PageRank.

Compare the relative PageRank of your site with other related sites by viewing the green bar to the left of a website in the web page section (near the bottom of the page) of the Google Directory page. (If your site isn’t listed in the Directory, that’s another way to improve its PageRank. See www.dmoz.org/add.html.)

Technology behind Google's great results

As a Google user, you're familiar with the speed and accuracy of a Google search. How exactly does Google manage to find the right results for every query as quickly as it does? The heart of Google's search technology is PigeonRank™, a system for ranking web pages developed by Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin at Stanford University.

PigeonRank's success relies primarily on the superior trainability of the domestic pigeon (Columba livia) and its unique capacity to recognize objects regardless of spatial orientation. The common gray pigeon can easily distinguish among items displaying only the minutest differences, an ability that enables it to select relevant web sites from among thousands of similar pages.

By collecting flocks of pigeons in dense clusters, Google is able to process search queries at speeds superior to traditional search engines, which typically rely on birds of prey, brooding hens or slow-moving waterfowl to do their relevance rankings.

When a search query is submitted to Google, it is routed to a data coop where monitors flash result pages at blazing speeds. When a relevant result is observed by one of the pigeons in the cluster, it strikes a rubber-coated steel bar with its beak, which assigns the page a PigeonRank value of one. For each peck, the PigeonRank increases. Those pages receiving the most pecks, are returned at the top of the user's results page with the other results displayed in pecking order.

Google's pigeon-driven methods make tampering with our results extremely difficult. While some unscrupulous websites have tried to boost their ranking by including images on their pages of bread crumbs, bird seed and parrots posing seductively in resplendent plumage, Google's PigeonRank technology cannot be deceived by these techniques. A Google search is an easy, honest and objective way to find high-quality websites with information relevant to your search.

If you use Gmail for business, and particularly if you are in sales, you probably find that your inbox gets pretty overcrowded at times. You might even miss the CRM facilities of Microsoft Outlook at times (if you've ever used it you'll know that Outlook is still the market leading email client, and for good reasons). The folders and labels functionality in Gmail just cannot compare.

There is a tool that lets you extend Gmail and turn it into a CRM-like system, however. It's called Streak and it allows you to organise your leads into pipelines, so you can keep track of the current status of all your prospects, leads and clients, and get access to all the context you need at a glance - without ever having to leave your inbox to refer to another application.

Here are step by step instructions:

  • You will need Google Chrome installed before you can start using the Streak extension to manage your sales leads. Access the related download link for this article and download, then install, the excellent Google Chrome browser if you have not already done so. You will also need an active Gmail account, so browse to https://mail.google.com and register if you're not currently a Gmail user.

  • Using Google Chrome, access the Streak homepage and click Add to Chrome. Click Confirm when the installation dialog appears to add the extension to your browser. The Streak setup wizard appears after a few seconds.

  • In the project setup window, select Sales/CRM and click Done.

  • Click OK when prompted to create your first Box. A Box is a logical partition inside your Sales/CRM pipeline, which you should use to associate with a single client, sale or project. Access your Gmail inbox and open the first email thread you would like to place into a Box.

  • Click the Boxes button on the Gmail toolbar and choose Create New Box. Enter a meaningful name for the Box, such as the client or project name, and click Create. That email conversation is now associated with the new Box within your Sales/CRM pipeline.

  • To view your Sales/CRM pipeline, click the Pipelines option on the left hand side of the Gmail interface (where the folders are usually listed) and choose Sales/CRM. Your Sales/CRM pipeline is shown within the main Gmail panel, with the first Box you just created present.

  • Note the various columns available for each Box where you can add tracking information for that lead/prospect. In the Stage column, you can specify the Box as Lead, Contacted, Pitched, Demo, Negotiating or Closed using the dropdown menu.

  • Add manual values into the Assigned To, Deal Size and Notes fields as required.

  • Repeat steps 4 - 8 for every scenario you want to track using Streak. Your Sales/CRM pipeline will begin to grow, giving you an at-a-glance overview of everything in your workload - which can be invaluable during busy periods of extreme contention.
