desktop computer dodo 1 Are Mobiles Charging To Kill The Desktop

With football season kicking into full gear, the number of mobile searches will dramatically increase. Imagine a group of guys huddled around the TV watching the game. Everyone is loud and raucous for the first half which makes their appetite for the essential food groups, beer, and wings grow exponentially. Halftime is soon approaching and everyone needs a refill on beer and something to fuel them up for the next half. Buffalo Wild Wings airs an ad that lets their guests pull up a coupon on their mobile phones to present at their closest location by using ip geolocation. Everyone of the famished football fanatics reaches for their device, does a Google search for the coupon, and heads to the closest dining establishment.

With the prevalence of smartphones and tablets, it is becoming more important to make sure your mobile marketing campaign is on even keel with your overall marketing strategy. Buffalo Wild Wings couldn’t market their restaurants as effectively if they relied on a purely desktop SEO strategy. More businesses are using to their mobile strategy to reach out to potential consumers instead of relying solely on their traditional desktop campaigns.

image thumb25 Google Acquires Motorola, Why Exactly?

Riddled by the recent happenings of Microsoft firing ferociously at it, Google for some odd reason appears to be on wobbly grounds. The entire issue from this to the Google Plus saga paints quite a different picture that we usually see about Google. Not that controversies and a few hiccups here and there are new to Google, but the search giant has never really been on the defensive. Not until now.

image thumb1 Can the HTC Camera Be Beat? Can HTC Interface Ever Change?

The latest in the T-Mobile HTC 4G Android Phone lineup, the Sensation, is already being considered one of the best smartphones either company has ever been involved with. It’s 4.3 touch screen display and overall length of nearly 5 inches with a width of 0.44 inches gives it a lanky look. When compared to the iPhone, however, this quickly becomes the phone’s definitive style. Simply put, the HTC Sensation as a model overrides the cool factor of the iPhone, which is honestly an incredibly difficult thing for a mobile phone to achieve these days.

The battery life is almost too good to be true, and if I didn’t see it for myself I wouldn’t believe it. Two hours of music, an accumulative hour texting, count one more for talking, then another hour for browsing and four more for goofing off and gaming, and I still had plenty of power left. With the phone I have now that would’ve needed a charge before I had time to finish my second-to-last dungeon for the day.

image thumb59 Show Us The iPhone 5 And The iPad 3! Demands Samsung, Meh!

I think Samsung has lost it. Totally. The Korean mobile manufacturer has taken the Apple-Samsung lawsuit a step further by demanding Apple to show its next generation of the iPhone and the iPad to its lawyers. Is it forgetting that Apple keeps a very tight hold on any information getting out on the upcoming devices?

I am sure nothing is going to be shown by Apple for it thrives on suspense. But I think if apple has demanded Samsung to show its upcoming tablets and the smartphones; the Galax S2 and the Galaxy Tab 10.1. But what can turn against them is the fact that Apple’s demand was about the already released devices by Samsung whilst Samsung has asked Apple to reveal its yet to be announced devices. Face palm Samsung, you will have to break into Apple’s head quarters to get a hold of those.

image thumb57 Unlocked HTC Phones Will Be Flooding Markets

If you want to make it big amongst your consumers you need to listen to your community. I have always been surprised as to why would HTC power its mobiles with the open sourced Android operating system and yet prevent users from making changes in the software itself. The sense UI, etc, which often makes going hardcore of your smartphone a bit difficult.

However things are changing as Peter Chou, mentioned that HTC will be changing the Bootloader on HTC. He stated on the Facebook page:
