In-App Purchasing falters as Freemium In-App Advertising Rises

“This suggests that – as we have previously noted - the early days of life are absolutely vital when it comes to ‘converting’ Freemium players on mobile. It is imperative to make every effort to put the right experiences and offers in front of players from the very moment they begin play in order to maximize the revenue generated in what can be a very short window.” Excerpt from a study by Swrve, Game Developer Consultant conducted in the First Quarter of 2014 For those of you aspiring Video Game Developers planning to use the Freemium Gaming Model as described in Smartphones and Apps – Freemium Games are No. 1, be it for Desktop or for Mobile, I have some very bad news.

The Two Towers of Tablets, 7” Amazon Kindle Fire and 7.9” Apple iPad are the Global Tablet size of Choice

“It seems people especially like the size….. [it's] lighter, slimmer and easier to carry” DisplaySearch analyst David Hsieh in an interview with CNET News related to the Apple iPad Mini’s potential in December 2012 PC and Laptops are being slowly being killed off by the Apple iPhone and now the Apple iPadin line with my predictions in “How the Apple iPad killed Ultrabooks, Printing and the Mouse as the World Rediscovers Tablets”. But it’s what happening in the Tablet world since March 2013 that suddenly come up on my stats radar. This as the stars are falling into alignment in 2013 for Global Tablets domination, ironically by 7” Tablets. According to analyst Adobe’s Digital Index Report in March 2013, Tablets now surpass Smartphones in Internet Traffic: 8% of Global Internet...

Amazon sells 5.5 million Kindle Fires in Fourth Quarter 2012 – Apple iPad sales drop and plans January Press Event

Happy New Year to all my loyal Fans of my posts! If you can read this, then your tech spirit is still alive despite the lackluster showing of innovation at the CES (Computer Electronics Show) 2012AD, my early out-take on a year that is already set to be dominated by Apple iPhone, Apple iPad and Amazon Kindle Fire and smartphone (??) rumour news. But on to the news, folks! The comments last year were encouraging and now this year is even more so for e-Readers, if the Sunday January 1st 2012AD article is to be believed. The article in our local Sunday Newspaper painted a picture of a device from a company that was not associated with Tech Products but is now popular with everyone, even Jamaicans. Truly 2012 is set to be the Year of the e-Reader, as the Amazon Kindle Fire is off to a great ...

Apple needs to consider a 7” Tablet as the million-selling Amazon Kindle Fire is Razor Sharp

The Amazon Kindle Fire is on a roll. Or if you are a fan of cliché phrases, they are on Fire. According to Amazon’s Press Release on Thursday December 15th 2011, they were selling one million of these 7” inch lollipops of Netflix and e-book nirvana per week. Now although I am gainfully employed at one of the Call Centers, namely ACS-Xerox, that has the privilege of handling calls with regards to Amazon’s accounts, I am a bit skeptical of this number. It is true that the Amazon Kindle Fire is (again cliché alert!!) a hot seller. But with the Kindle Touch and the Kindle Wi-Fi being markedly cheaper at US$99 and US$79 respectively, I am more inclined to believe that the bulk of those one million (1,000,000) Kindles sold per week since launch on Wednesday September 28th 2011AD three (3) mo...

Porteon heralds the coming of Free Local Shipping in 2012 – Amazon.com beckons

Since my article Oregon-based Porteon to assemble All-Electric Vehicles in Jamaica – One By One on the coming of Oregon-based Porteon and the All-Electric Vehicles at a Vehicle Fabrication plant in Viewfort,  St. Lucia and then ship them as containerized parts to Jamaica to have Jamaica’s finest Automotive Engineers and Technicians assemble All-Electric Trucks and Vehicles and possibly having us trained to repair and service them, most likely in partnership with CEO Adam Stewarts ATL (gasping for breath after such a long sentence!) people have been PESTERING me to do a follow up. Seriously pestering me, people. Chillax, I hear you…. This was especially the plea of one nice little chickadee who works at ACS-Xerox sporting a nice charm bracelet and with a green eye for the environmentally...
