Developing mobile apps is said to be big business. Companies like ours are involved in developing apps for both IOS and Android platforms. The following chart may have developers refocussing their development and go-to-market priorities.

First cut of BlueScape's new website. Had to come up with a tagline and, considering we are focussed on ERP, BPM, & CPM, have settled for "Performance Matters™".

Wow +John Oliver thanks so much for this feedback. I've not had a chance to read it all yet but I will over the weekend.

I read the first part though about Aussie English. Had a laugh because I'm Australian !

Once again thanks mate.

The Value of Privacy
———————————————————————
Is Google a friend, acquaintance, or stranger ? If you were asked the types of questions shown in the application by either a friend, acquaintance, or stranger how much information would you be willing to share ?

A special Android application will intrude on privacy on a daily basis. London’s Queen Mary University decided to carry out a research into how people value their own personal information. Within the frames of this research, the volunteers agreed to install a free Android application on their mobiles.

At first, this application will ask the volunteers some basic information about their background. Later, it will ask for more details every day over the next 2 weeks. The university claims that this will emulate the kind of data Internet companies are collecting from their users daily. The questions that the app will ask are intrusively private, but the kind of answers apps can take from user behaviour which is taken for granted – for example, what the user is doing, how he feels about what he is doing, where he is, who he is with, and how much the data would be worth to him. Everyone knows that this kind of data is given away for free, on the Internet, on a daily basis.

The leader of the research, Dr. Bernadette Kamleitner from the School of Business and Management, claimed that personal data is a huge but poorly regulated business. Despite the fact that the consumers are able to benefit from the use of their data through receiving customized offers that may be interesting for them, others can also use their private details to make money.

Queen Mary University hopes that that the research will help them understand which information people believe is more or less valuable to them. In addition, the results would show whether people really believe that personal data has no price or not.

I must admit to having quite simple needs, when it comes to the internet I ony use G+ for socialising and the T&C's are pretty straight forward. In other aspects of life, for example my credit card, I went to the bank and had them take me through the T&C's. So it's not a major issue for me.

I appreciate that other people have more complex needs & so it is harder for them. I also appreciate that some people find it harder to read and/or understand these things than others & they could do with some protection from the unscrupulous, but even those people can understand the principle of not agreeing to something that they don't understand.

I mentioned that I am very biased at the beginning. This is because I have a huge chip on my shoulder with people who don't want to take responsibility for their actions and an even bigger chip with those who try to keep them that way.

I see stuff in the papers and on the news but mostly on the internet saying that some person or people are victims of a circumstance where they've been had by an agreement that they've made and how awful the people are that they made the agreement with.

These articles only serve to keep pathological victims the way they are. I never see any of the 'victims' taking any level of responsibility. I think that this is a growing problem and incorporates the sueing lottery that you mentioned earlier and has created a generation of people with very high expectations of the world to protect them from themselves when really they should be learning to look after themselves.

I do realise that it is me who has an issue with this and that I need to deal with that, but I sometimes can't help but comment when I see stuff like Michael Fenichel saying that Facebook are 'evil' with their T&C's (first comment on this post). Facebook are not evil, they make their T&C's available (understandable or not) before you take an account with them. The marketing material that these websites take is not always evil ether, it's usually used to taylor advertising to suit individuals which means that companies can spend less on marketing and overall enjoy better profits therefore make a better contribution to a failing economy.

I guess that my overall point is that I'd like to see improvement in our cultural attitude towards all of this, and I realise that this includes me.

My rant of the day about LinkedIn

I'm pissed about the breach that occurred recently of the harvesting of user logins and passwords for LinkedIn Accounts.

Good luck with my password, it's not one of the 99% that would have been easily deciphered. Not too concerned about that.

However today I received a supposedly legitimate email reminding me of LinkedIn invitations pending for my review. The usual practise is to the click the links in the email to go directly to the LinkedIn site. I do not just click anything, I will always hover over links to view urls before the right index finger engages, I'm certain many of you do not, and I immediately see that links are pointing to some other website.

Why am I so pissed ? Because some idiot years ago solving the problem  of unique user names for login credentials came up with the idea of hey, why not impose the use of email addresses as a unique identifier ? and so everyone followed this stupid idea tailored for stupid people who have trouble either creating a user name or remembering the user name they created for a site previously registered.

My gmail address is used as my user login at LinkedIn. Now I am being flooded with spam because my user login being my email address is now available to the public. This is along with the other 20 or so recipients whose first name starts with the letter S.

Rant ends here. Have a nice day :)

And by the way I have a nice case study about a successful Openbravo installation recently done by our team, http://bluescape.asia/case-study-openbravo-retail.html

Regards,

Salahuddin

I'm going to bring up and old post for one reason. We now have a team that has a solution to this problem. I'm not ready to market it yet. Anyone who has been following me and has the opportunity for territorial rights we should talk.
