Police wasted €400,000 on 'redundant' emergency app: report
Due to delays and setbacks, the deadline to launch the app in the spring of 2017 was never reached. Construction of the app only started in February 2018. In that period the current Minister of Justice and Security, Ferdinand Grapperhaus, suddenly announced that - contrary to all previous decisions - he is giving priority to the introduction of AML. Making the main function of the 112 app completely obsolete.

Ride-hailing app Grab partners Maybank for mobile wallet launch
To be a little Friedman in a taxi here: when I was in Jakarta, you could see the huge banking expansion available in converting much of the country to cashless. All these merchants and buyers (people, if you will) who are purely cash based and don’t have bank accounts. And that’s just one (albeit it, giant) city:

Ooi Huey Tyng, MD, GrabPay Singapore, Malaysia and Philippines, says: "The whole industry needs to come together to make the cashless economy a reality in Malaysia. We are honoured to partner with Maybank which not only shares our vision of a cashless payments future, but also recognises Grab as ideally poised to help make this a reality.

"With GrabPay mobile wallet as the leading payment method on our Grab app, it will build an interconnected ecosystem of our services, thus making Grab an everyday app to complement consumers’ everyday lifestyle."

Also, I love this “cashless” term. So much better than “mobile payments.”

Insurers go all-out on mobile, but what comes next is elusive
“74% of Canadians begin their insurance research journey online, with 25% of those using a smartphone only. Further 61% of this segment will immediately abandon a broker’s website if not considered mobile-friendly, and a full 50% of Canadian consumers believe that if a company does not have a mobile website it does not care about that customer’s business”

Global race for 5G heats up with latest US Congress bill
“Prices vary widely across the United States but the average cost of installing equipment on a pole is around $2,000 per year. AT&T recently complained that it had received an estimate of $8,000 a year from a city in California. Even in low-cost Georgia, the local government felt it could get away with asking for $6,000 per pole per year.... There are roughly 350,000 base stations in the US and that number would likely have to quadruple (again, these are all rough figures) for 5G. So the annual cost of simply hosting 5G equipment is in the billions of dollars.”

Will 2018 be the year of the neo-luddite?
‘More significantly, the whole of society seems to have woken up to the fact there is a psychological cost to constant checking, swiping and staring. A growing number of my friends now have “no phone” times, don’t instantly sign into the cafe wifi, or have weekends away without their computers. This behaviour is no longer confined to intellectuals and academics, part of some clever critique of modernity. Every single parent I know frets about “screen time”, and most are engaged in a struggle with a toddler over how much iPad is allowed. The alternative is “slow living” or “slow tech”. “Want to become a slow-tech family?” writes Janell Burley Hoffmann, one of its proponents. “Wait! Just wait – in line, at the doctor’s, for the bus, at the school pickup – just sit and wait.” Turning what used to be ordinary behaviour into a “movement” is a very modern way to go about it. But it’s probably necessary.’

Google takes $1.1bn chomp out of HTC, smacks lips, burps
Google still looking to crack into hardware. Maybe getting a clutch of regular, steady performers instead of startup rock-stars will help:

‘Google has formally completed its $1.1bn (£780m) takeover of a chunk of HTC, under which some 2,000 staff will transfer to work on the chocolate factory's Pixel phone.

‘In a blog post, Rick Osterloh, senior hardware veep at the megacorp, said "building hardware is... hard," adding: "That's why I'm delighted that we've officially closed our deal with HTC."’

Meet Kate Garman, Seattle’s smart cities coordinator, tasked with making the city more efficient
Examples of what a city would do with IoT:

“The private sector has pushed cities in a lot of ways,” she said. “My favorite example is, because Uber and Lyft and other transportation network companies could show you where your ride is on your phone, people started really asking, ‘Well, where’s my snow plow? Where are my services?’ It opened people’s minds to expecting more from the public sector, which is a healthy thing so long as the public sector has enough capacity for it.”

Tolerating distraction
“The modern anxiety about distraction betrays a good deal about us. Insofar as we associate attention with power and control, it reflects our fears of losing both in an increasingly unpredictable cultural and natural climate. We also find ourselves living in an economy where we pay for cultural goods with our attention, so it makes sense that we worry about running out of a precious currency.”

Customers find it incredibly convenient to be able to pick up a product when they wanted to. They didn’t have to worry about whether or not it was on their doorstep.

Gartner Says Demand for Enterprise Mobile Apps Will Outstrip Available Development Capacity Five to One
"Organizations increasingly find it difficult to be proactive against competitive pressures, which is resulting in their mobile apps becoming tactical, rather than strategic," said Mr. Leow. "We're seeing demand for mobile apps outstrip available development capacity, making quick creation of apps even more challenging. Mobile strategists must use tools and techniques that match the increase in mobile app needs within their organizations." And: "Gartner believes organizations will improve their in-house mobile development skills over time, but currently only 26 percent of organizations are adopting an in-house-only development approach, while 55 percent are successfully delivering apps using mixed sourcing."

You always hear about “the post-PC” world, that is tablets and smartphones (mostly smartphones!) taking over marketshare from PCs. In July of 2011, Horace Dediu published a chart that defines the way I think about the tech industry, for the most part in his post "Is the tablet computer a new PC or post-PC?". It’s the perfect chart because it shows when disruption happens and how: from an unexpected competitor and then all of the sudden once you realize what’s happening. It shows how the PC (read: WinTel) “lost” to Apple and Android. Around 2013 Gartner started tracking these numbers (they’d been doing some weird “media tablet” thing before that), and you can pull the from press releases (2013, 2014, 2015) to get a non-Horace picture. Anyhow, here’s the current rev of the chart based on Gartner’s world-wide shipment estimates. Amazing! (“Phones” includes smartphones and “hybrid” devices like the Yoga, etc. The hybrid stuff is very small, a rounding error, so don’t freak out too much about the taxonomy.) Gartner also publishes OS share: in 2014, there were 1.1 billion Android devices, 262 million iOS/MacOS (they combine them), and 333 million Windows, along with a big bucket of 626 million “other.” So, Android has 47.8% share, iOS/Mac 11%, Windows 14%. In doing strategy and analyst work, I feel like I put this chart together every year. What it says is: mobile wins, write apps for those devices. Do that third platform shit! Granted, these are only shipments, not cumulative “existing” boxes. Hey, it’s just a chart, after all. (See also [a 451 report I wrote about Chromebook usage for some more charts and figures on device and PC adoption].)

A small cup of Starbucks coffee contains 250mg of caffeine. For a frame of reference, espresso tops out at about 75mg. Let’s face it: Starbucks sells a drug I am addicted to. And their app allows me to pay for my addiction easily and rewards me with a free vial - I mean cup - of coffee every so often. I also get free apps on the iTunes app store.

I/O: Google unveils design language that will RULE OVER 'DROIDS • The Register
Microsoft shot for consistency with Metro, putting the square interface on its tablets, phones and PCs under something it called three-screens and the cloud. Yet Microsoft was wrong to lump PC users in with device users, as it turned out neither customers nor developers wanted Metro on their PC – they hated it. There is a notion that Metro was a failure there, which would be good to see the proof points in (low Window 8 uptake?). But, putting that footnoting aside as a distraction from interesting noodling, there’s a fun idea in there that we’ll see a lot in the coming years: do mobile devices need different UIs and UX than PCs, and Bice versa?

[Big Data, cloud and social/mobile] are truly going to change the profile of this company. And, if you think about it, actually they’re going to change the profile of this industry. As I like to think of it, the industry is reordering. If you take cloud, data and engagement, those are shifts that taken in total, this convergence, it will reorder the industry and we will lead that. We’ll lead it from the enterprise perspective. —IBM’s Ginni Rometty There’s a bunch of “reordering” to be done: injecting new technologies into creaky old enterprise tech.
