Yelp Adds Video Function to Review Site

Posted in News on 29 July 2014
Yelp is turning to video to enable users of its site to personalize their reviews.
 
The online review site has updated its iPhone app to give its users the chance to post three- to 12-second video reviews of local eateries, hotspots and other businesses.
 
Visuals are important, Yelp said in a blog post, noting that 23,000 photos are uploaded daily from mobile apps. In fact, Yelp users spend 2.5 times longer on business pages with pictures than on those that have none.
 
Kicking it up a notch with video better enables users to capture details of an establishment that photos alone can’t.
 
The feature is not meant to be an oral video review but, rather, an opportunity to show the décor, ambiance and size of an establishment.
 
“These short videos are great for conveying the atmosphere of a business, which helps others anticipate their experience before stopping by,” Yelp said in the blog post. “For instance, imagine scrolling through pics of delicious dishes at a new bistro but not really being able to tell if the ambiance is more ‘date night’ or ‘family friendly.’ Yelp video is here to help.”
 
Although the feature is currently only available for iPhone users, the tool is coming soon Android.

Samsung's Operating System Delayed Again

Posted in News on 29 July 2014

Tizen-Operated Phones Won't Roll Out This Quarter

Does it really matter anymore?
 
SamsungThat question seems even more relevant with news that Samsung has delayed the launch of Tizen, it’s operating system that would challenge both Google’s Android operating system and Apple’s iOS. The system had been scheduled to first roll out in Russia sometime this quarter but that launch date has been pushed back.
 
Initially, as ZDNet reports, Samsung had said the first line of Tizen-operated devices would be available in 2013. That, obviously, didn’t happen and the company has now said more time is needed to develop the system.
 
It seems a stretch to imagine a third, popular operating system on the market, especially one from Samsung. The company has, as reported earlier this year, maintained its spot as the top provider for mobile phones with a nearly 31 percent hold on the market.
 
What system do Samsung phones use now? Android.
 
Tizen is Samsung’s second attempt at creating its own operating system, as noted by USA Today, and has been in development since 2011. Those delays seem to have taken a toll as, in January, Japan’s largest mobile carrier, NTT DoCoMo, put off its plan to sell Tizen handsets.
 
Don’t count Samsung out, though.
 
While Tizen phone’s have yet to see the light of day, other devices relying on the system have been made available. A Smartwatch and a Samsung camera both use the system.
 
But, as Pop Herald reported, the idea of its own operating system is likely linked to cash for Samsung. With its phones depending on Android most users purchase apps for their devices from Google’s Play Store. That’s the Android store which is operated through Google.
 
Samsung isn’t making nearly as much money from those apps as it would if it had its own app store and operating system.

Mozilla Chooses Interim Boss Chris Beard as CEO

Posted in News on 29 July 2014
Mozilla’s acting CEO has been handed the job full-time.
 
The maker of Firefox — which chose former marketing chief Chris Beard to serve as its interim top boss in April after the position was vacated by the embattled Brendan Eich — has made the promotion permanent.
 
“The Mozilla board has reviewed many internal and external candidates – and no one we met was a better fit,” said Mozilla board chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a blog post.
 
“Over the years, Chris has led many of Mozilla’s most innovative projects. We have relied on his judgment and advice for nearly a decade. Chris has a clear vision of how to take Mozilla’s mission and turn it into industry-changing products and ideas.”
 
The decision to hand Beard the top spot brings an end to the drama-filled days of co-founder Eich’s tenure as CEO.
 
Eich was forced to resign after less than two weeks in office over his gay marriage stance. Liberal groups and gay activists demanded Eich step down after it became public knowledge that he supported the passage of California’s Proposition 8, a state-wide initiative to ban gay marriage, with a $1,000 donation in 2008.
 
After just 11 days as CEO, Eich, in a blog post April 3, confirmed he was not only leaving his post as CEO, but leaving the company he helped found altogether.
 
Mozilla then found itself under attack for not supporting Eich, who had always kept his personal opinions separate from his work. Many said Mozilla’s chairwoman’s lack of support for Eich was unfair and he was being victimized for his belief in traditional marriage.
 
But now, four months later, Mozilla seems to have put the past behind it and is now looking to a future with Beard at the helm.
Baker, in her blog post, described Beard as the best person for the job.
 
“Chris has a keen sense of where Mozilla has been – and where we’re headed,” she said. “He has unique experience connecting with every constituency that touches our products, including consumers, partners and community members. There’s simply no better person to lead Mozilla as we extend our impact from Firefox on the desktop to the worlds of mobile devices and services.”

Google to Acquire Video Game Firm Twitch for $1B in Cash

Posted in News on 28 July 2014
Google is shelling out a massive $1 billion to buy video game-broadcasting company Twitch, according to news reports.
 
Sources “familiar with the matter” told Venture Beat the deal has been signed and that Google-owned YouTube is in charge of the purchase.
 
News of the deal is not much of a surprise. Variety reported in May Google had reached a tentative all-cash deal to buy Twitch for $1 billion to give YouTube a boost. Unnamed sources told Variety that, if the cash offer went through, it would be the most significant acquisition in the Google-owned company’s history.
 
Neither Google nor Twitch would comment on the deal.
 
Twitch, which was launched in June of 2011, is currently the most popular Web service on the market for watching and broadcasting video game-plays streamed through Xbox and PlayStation consoles.
 
The San Francisco company said more than 45 million monthly users and in excess of one million members are uploading videos each month.

Bose Suing Beats for Patent Infringement

Posted in News on 28 July 2014
Sound system and headphone kingpin Bose is suing arch-rival Beats, accusing the company, which was recently purchased by Apple for $3 billion, of patent infringement of its noise-canceling technology.
 
Bose, in its lawsuit against Beats, accused the company of violating 50 years’ worth of its noise-canceling research, development and engineering.
 
Bose said its current products uses “at least 36 U.S. patents and applications,” made up of 22 granted patents and 14 applications currently under review.
 
The Beats Studio line, which includes the new Studio Wireless Bluetooth headphones is one of the products named in the lawsuit, according to CNBC.
 
The complaint, which names Beat Electronics and Beats Electronics International as defendants, asks for an injunction against any products that infringe its patents.
 
Bose is also seeking damages including court costs and “other relief” at the court’s discretion.
 
All things considered, it looks like Apple will be back in court once again to fight the infringement changes.
 
As part of the acquisition, Apple is to acquire the Beats headphones business, the new, but well-received subscription service Beats Music and, most importantly, music heavy weights and Beats co-founders Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre.
