How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

While Apple may have a rep as the brand users would walk across broken glass for, Android users actually have a higher rate of loyalty, according to a new report.

The study from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP) shows that 91% of Android owners remain loyal to that mobile OS, compared with 86% of iOS users.

The data was collected as part of quarterly surveys of 500 users that have been performed by CIRP from March 2013 through December 2017. For its latest results, CIRP measured the percentage of customers who remained with each operating system when activating a new phone over twelve months ending December 2017.

8 essential Android to iOS file-transfer tips

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

When it comes to using the Android or iOS platform, everybody seems to have chosen sides — but living in a multi-platform world means we need to share files occasionally. Here are eight ways Android and iPhone/iOS users can share files with each other.

1. Use email

Sending files using email remains the easiest way to share items with others; however, this isn’t always the most effective choice if:

  • You don’t know a person’s email address
  • You can’t get online
  • You are sharing very large files
  • You are sharing sensitive data, such as client records.

Fortunately, there are lots of other ways to share data between the two platforms.

IDG Contributor Network: The focus of Mobile World Congress 2018 is 5G, AI, IoT and beyond

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Every time there is a big wireless, telecom or technology trade show, the big question I am always asked by the media as a telecom and wireless analyst, is simple. What was the key message or take away from the show? Last week, at the world’s largest wireless trade show, Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona, Spain, the answer was clear. First it is about 5G, with plenty of AI and IoT mixed in. Yes, our world is rapidly changing.

So, what will 5G, AI and IoT do for us? Today, in our 4G world, we can download a movie we want to watch in roughly 6 minutes. Using 5G, we will download the movie in roughly six seconds. It will change everything. It will encourage new business creation. It will empower new ideas and new companies just like we have seen with Uber and Lyft in recent years.

Tech Talk: The fate of developers (and the future of mobile)

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

The good news, if you’re a developer (or hope to be one) is that it’s a lot easier than it used to be break into the field. The bad news is that the skills you have now, or learn today, may not be useful for as long as they were, say, 20 years ago.

As Infoworld‘s Serdar Yegulalp noted: Think about all the Adobe Flash developers whose careers are on the rocks now that Flash has largely become a dead end.

Yegulalp, PC World‘s Michael Simon and Computerworld Executive Editor Ken Mingis talked about what it takes to be a developer these days, and difficult it can be to stay on top of the skills needed to be a success.

Microsoft’s Cortana speaker will go the way of the Zune

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Remember the Zune? Probably not, or if you do, you don’t remember it well. It was a portable digital music player launched by Microsoft in 2006 to compete with Apple’s iPod. It tied to Microsoft’s MSN music service in the same way the iPod ties to iTunes.

The Zune was one of Microsoft’s many ungodly kludges. It started life as a bulky, too-expensive, unwieldy contraption that was unpleasant to use and inferior in every way to an iPod. I know because I had one. (That’s the kind of thing one has to do when one covers the Microsoft beat.) And it only got worse from there. For example, there was midnight on December 31, 2008, when countless first-generation Zunes froze and refused to work because their internal clock drivers couldn’t handle the leap year properly. (A day later, the Zune unfroze by itself.) Eventually, in 2011, Microsoft finally discontinued the unloved and unlovable device.

Get ready for an explosion of smartphone innovation

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Is the smartphone industry stagnant?

The answer is a resounding “Sort of.”

The trouble is that most of the smartphone innovation these days doesn’t enable the user to actually do anything different. Breathtaking new technology merely allows the same old usage models — slightly faster or “better.”

The phones change. But the way we use them doesn’t.

Innovation these days seems to be all about thinner bezels, or face authentication. Which is impressive from a technology standpoint. But these aren’t features that fundamentally change how we interact with our devices.

New cameras give us incredibly advanced technology, and pictures that are slightly better than previous models.
