HOW INTERNET USERS ADAPTED AFTER SNOWDEN REVELATIONS
It's been more than a year since the world was shaken up by the revelations about the degree of online surveillance carried out by the NSA. Former NSA contractor Edward Snowden had leaked classified documents that revealed the extent to which the agency monitored online activity around the world. But did last year's events actually have an effect on the way people behave online? According to an extensive study published by the Centre for International Governance Innovation, the effects weren't as big as one could have expected.
Just 60 percent of the 23,000+ internet users surveyed for the report have even heard of Edward Snowden and merely 39 percent of those who are aware of Snowden's actions have subsequently changed their online behavior. However, 64 percent of all respondents admitted to being more concerned about online privacy compared to a year ago and 62 percent stated their concern about foreign government agencies spying on their online activities. The survey participants saw the biggest threat to online privacy coming from criminal hackers: 4 in 5 respondents expressed their fear of criminals accessing their bank accounts or personal photos / messages.

CHROME BEATS FIREFOX IN BATTLE FOR NO. 2
On November 9, 2004, Mozilla released the first version of Firefox. The free browser became an instant success and was downloaded 100 million times in its first year. Firefox became the first challenger of Microsoft's Internet Explorer which held a market share of 90% back then after having defeated Netscape Navigator in the first browser war. Firefox's emergence rang in the second browser war, which saw the Internet Explorer's market share gradually erode as more and more browsers entered the market.
After having been the number 2 behind IE for years, Firefox was surpassed by Google's Chrome browser earlier this year. Chrome, which made its debut in 2008, quickly opened up a lead and currently holds 21.3% market share compared to Firefox's 13.9%. Microsoft's Internet Explorer still remains the clear frontrunner with a market share of almost 60%.

HARVARD'S BILLION DOLLAR REPUTATION
When it comes to billionaire graduates from business schools, no place comes close to the United States and to Harvard University in particular. Harvard has produced 335 Rhodes scholars and 150 Nobel laureates, but its reputation as the world's foremost billionaire business school is rarely mentioned. According to Wealth-X, the Harvard business school has churned out 64 billionaires. This is far more than second placed Stanford's 23 and Columbia's 14.

TABLETS: THE HYPE IS OVER
It remains to be seen if a new generation of the iPad can boost Apple’s flagging tablet sales. In fact, the tablet hype seems to be over already with both IDC and Gartner revising their sales forecasts for this year, predicting a downward trend. According to media reports, the primary reason for this is the fact that people are not changing/upgrading their tablets so often. Additionally many people see little use for tablets in their everyday lives. The new rising star in the world of mobile devices seems to be the phablet. According to IDC, phablet sales are set to increase in 2014 by over 200 percent compared with 2013.

THESE COUNTRIES HAVE THE FASTEST INTERNET SPEEDS
According to Akamai's most recent State of the Internet Report, South Korea boasts the highest average internet connection speed in the world. Korea's internet users surfed at an average speed of 24.6 Mbps in the second quarter of 2014 according to Akamai's measurements.
Korea is trailed by Hong Kong, Switzerland and Japan who each saw average speeds around 15 Mbps. The United States ranked 14th with an average connection speed of 11.4 Mbps, which is still way above the global average of 4.6 Mbps. To add a little perspective on what these speeds mean: At 10 Mbps it takes around 50 minutes to download a 2-hour movie in HD quality.

IS ANDROID BECOMING THE NEW WINDOWS?
There was a time, around 20 years ago, when Microsoft had around 90 percent market share in the computing market while other companies, most notably Apple, were fighting for relevance. A lot has changed since then. It began with the slow reemergence of Apple in the late 1990s and early 2000s, but it wasn't until the first iPhone was released in 2007 that the market was turned upside down. Within a couple of years, hundreds of millions of new computing devices were sold and Microsoft lost its dominant market position. 
Now it’s Windows that’s struggling to stay relevant while another operating system is as ubiquitous as Windows once was. It’s not Apple that has risen to dominance though - Mac OS and iOS still trail Windows in terms of market share. It’s Android that has taken over the reins from Microsoft. According to Gartner's latest forecast, Google's open operating system will be installed on almost 60 percent of all connected devices shipped this year. That includes PCs, mobile phones, tablets and so-called hypermobiles, a relatively new category of devices that consists of tablet/PC hybrids and cloud-based laptops such as Google's Chromebook. In 2014, more than one billion Android devices were shipped worldwide, likely bringing Android's installed base to more than two billion devices.

INTERNET OF THINGS TO HIT THE MAINSTREAM BY 2020
According to a recent forecast by market research firm Gartner, our homes will become a whole lot smarter over the next few years. Gartner expects the so-called Internet of Things to break through to the mainstream, predicting the number of smart objects in use worldwide to reach 25 billion by 2020.
The Internet of Things covers a wide range of products: from consumer products such as Nest's smart thermostats (Nest was recently acquired by Google for $3.2 billion) to intelligent street lighting that could help governments save energy - the potential for connected objects is basically limitless. Gartner expects a certain degree of connectivity to become the standard for everyday products, meaning that smartphones might soon become even smarter, as they turn into a remote control for everything from refrigerators to lamps and washing machines. Does this sound like a Sci-Fi movie? It can be reality pretty soon here!

E-BOOKS SET TO SURPASS PRINT IN THE U.S.
Over the next five years, the fate of the e-book is set to vary significantly by country. In Germany, for example, it will remain a niche player for the foreseeable future, according to a PricewaterhouseCoopers study published by the Economist. Today in the United States, the e-book industry is worth about $5.7 billion while print is worth approximately $10 billion. By 2018, print and e-books will be worth $7.9 and $8.7 billion respectively, an incredible shift compared to other developed nations like Germany where print is going to remain dominant. The e-book is also set to surpass print in the United Kingdom. In 2018, its e-book industry will be worth $1.5 billion compared to print which is expected to generate sales of $1.4 billion.

STARTUP FUNDING SHOWS SIGNS OF NEW TECH BUBBLE
Two venture capitalists in the United States have expressed their worries about the current state of the US startup community recently. In essence, both are saying that startups are burning through too much cash and that the overall amount of risk currently taken on in Silicon Valley is excessive. It’s not the first time people have warned about a new tech bubble, but are the concerns justified?
A look at the data seems to suggest so: according to Thomson Reuter data published by PricewaterhouseCoopers, venture capital funding in the U.S. amounted to $12.97 billion in Q2 2014, which is by far the highest level it’s been at since Q1 2001. Compared to the second quarter of last year, VC funding jumped 81% in Q2, representing the highest year-over-year increase since Q3 2000 when VC funding reached its historical peak. Interestingly the number of VC deals hasn’t increased as much as the total amount that was invested, indicating that the average value per deal must have increased. And indeed it has: at $11.64 million the average value per deal was as high in Q2 2014 as it’s last been in Q4 2000.
While these numbers do not necessarily mean that we’re in a new dot-com bubble, they make one thing perfectly clear: the period of prudence that followed the financial crisis of 2009 is officially over.
