Whats the future like for Facebook n google?
I am sure if u r an investor u want to know what the future is like for yo stock. My guess is the future looks much brighter for Facebook than it is for google and here is why:
When Facebook bought whatsapp it invested heavily in the future. Indeed it coughed up 21 billion dollars to acquire whatsapp. Google of course had been in IM business much ealier with its google talk. Just like Microsoft failed to see the mobile market passing by, so did google. It let the IM market slip through its hands. Remember those days when Steve Balmer said android was a small project doomed to fail. Now the point is IM is going to be everything in the future. Already some IM platforms like wechat are shapinh up to be like mini webs or "internet ". These apps are developing to be self sustaining with massive user numbers. While their capabilities may seem so limited for now, think of what AI will do to those apps. The possibilities are endless. And where is google in all this? Well google is primarily a search firm, it has not been able to coherently deal with rise in IM. Its current response has been to through in a myriad of IM apps. That certainly looks doomed. Google is simply too late to the party. Facebook certainly looks well armed and poised to exploit the future market of AI based marketing. Well the game is on, Facebook needs to mess up big time to loose this one. Such a subtle change of an IM acquisition is all that Facebook needed to conquer the mighty google

So why is google pushing hard to integrate chrome and google play store? I would think most of you know that by now. Its google's strategy of preventing the imminent collapse of the web as we know it. Google thrives on indexing web pages and providing cutting edge technology of serving up that information as search results. The explosive popularity of android must have taken google by surprise when the app ecosystem began to grow much faster than the web. This would mean google would not be google in say 5 yrs. So google has had to devote its most skill engineering talent to reverse what could have been a self inflicted shot in the foot. But the question remains, can google stop the tidal waves threatening to rip the web apart? Can google stop the android momentum? It remains to be seen, how perhaps google will deploy its much regarded AI technology to its entire ecosystem as this could be be google's game changer in the future.

UPDATE: Since publishing this article, Google has removed it manually from all Google Finance search results. If that isn’t anti-competitive behaviour, I don’t know what is. Other publishers who are experiencing such anti-competitive behaviour from Google, or are suffering decreased …

Analysts are saying Larry is concerned with future tech than short time strategies. Perhaps its time for google to get concerned with some technology that is as ubiquitous as search as been over the years. That of course is the Holy Grail.
Last week, Google reported slower-than-expected...

As africa goes digital are these nations capable of maintaining full cyber security? It is well known fact that ICT skills in africa lag far behind the rest of the world. How can africans secure their sovereignty in cyberworld? In the modern age of cyber espionage how safe are african nations? What are these nations doing to close the ICT skills gap that continues to widen everyday? Perhaps these are very important issues that must be seriously addressed even at SADC and/or AU level.

So whats the next exciting design in mobile devices and apps. I guess its the application of AI. I imagine mobiles and apps being able to self customise themselves as the user interact more and more with them. All those regular changes that we do to apps would kind of fade into the background as AI takes over and gives us a truly smart phone. Imagine Microsoft's word app being able to detect that u r writing yo boss and instead of accepting yo short hand u normally use for IM and SMS, the app intelligently picks up yo message and reformats it into a formal mail. Of course AI on smart fone is slowly marking its way. Its perhaps at its very early stagr, more like the internet in 1984. What we should know is it will not be so long when all these things just happen on our mobiles and never amuse us.

Its been a while since i posted here, well here are some of my reasons why i rarely post on google+ despite the fact that Google is my favourite brand.
1. Google+ is not regularly used by more 90% of my contacts.
2. Google+ has not special data bundle on any network here like whatsapp, twitter, Facebook and Opera mini enjoy.
3. Google+ is a data guzzler, it loads fotos and thumbnails and cannot be configured to reduce data consumption.
4. Google+ does not offer much when offline, compare that to whatsapp.
5. Google+ is not cool enough, especially for our beloved sisters.

All that said, i am a regular user of Google +, i dont post that much but i do enjoy the quality of content posted here.

According to sources close to the Wall Street Journal, Google is looking into launching a new mobile based messenger service underpinned by artificial intelligence.

+Google+ now has more than 2 BILLION accounts !! In a little over 3 years, 1207 days to be precise, the number of personal profiles and pages has increased at a meteoric growth rate of approximately 1,658,625 new users/pages per day!

I've been calculating the growth rate of G+ for some time now at a website that I myself host : http://plus.miernicki.com and if you would like to plug this data into another application, you can access the raw data from : http://plus.miernicki.com/plus and http://plus.miernicki.com/minus (both JSON data feeds).

To just say +Google+ is just about numbers would definitely be doing it a disservice. In the 3+ years I've been here, I've made tons of friends, shared countless stories, and photographs with a wide and varied group of people... and to that I say, "Here's to the next 2 Billion users!"

The question is how much time do people actually spend on Google+.

Fascinated by science and driven by technology !!
Introduction

I am a great fan of science, in fact I studied university physics a decade ago. I love science and its application in everyday life fascinate me even more. I think science is clean, invariant, peaceful and so truthful. The greatest pleasure has been living in the era where science application has been so profound. From Curiosity (Nasa’s rover on Mars), medicine, computer science, wireless technology. It’s been such a true testimony of what science can do. I would love to see some day Africans getting into advanced science in space technology, medicine computer science and all areas that matter.

I am a self taught digital SLR photographer, I know what a good photograph looks like. I also know what it takes to get an excellent photo, but I consider myself a newbie in this area. Everyday brings something new. I am always willing learning.

When something exciting brews in my head, I always want to share it if I believe it’s of value to others. I recently started micro-blogging on google+ and I love it so much!! That’s what brings me on google+ almost daily. I enjoy talking about how technology reconfigures human behaviour and social traits.  I have met lots of people on google+ and I am literally connected to all the people that matter in the universe, technologists, scientists, educators, hobbyists,  friends and family. I use google services extensively. I got an invitation several months after google launched gmail and since then I have been on google. I have many gmail alerts that feed me with all that’s going on around me and I am well read on current affairs.  I love google and many of its products, android, chrome, Motorola and cloud services.

I hope someday to make some contribution in a little way to the technology industry as a telecommunications engineer which is my current area of study at MSU,a university in Zimbabwe..
