Facebook Ads Based on Browsing Challenge Google

Facebook Ads Based on Browsing Challenge Google $FB $GOOG

Facebook Inc. (FB), under pressure to expand sales from its 1.1 billion users, is pushing into a business that lets marketers buy advertisements in real time on the basis of a member’s Web-browsing habits.
Facebook Exchange, a five-month-old service that generates automated ad buying as users click around the site, so far has more than 1,300 customers, Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg said on a call last month. Now, the company is broadening Facebook Exchange’s global footprint, with plans to expand in Asia and Latin America.

MBA: Mortgage Applications Decrease

The Refinance Index decreased 3 percent from the previous week. The seasonally adjusted Purchase Index decreased 5 percent from one week earlier and is at its lowest level since the week ending December 28, 2012.

The average contract interest rate for 30-year fixed-rate mortgages with conforming loan balances ($417,500 or less) decreased to 3.77 percent from 3.78 percent, with points increasing to 0.48 from 0.40 (including the origination fee) for 80 percent loan-to-value ratio (LTV) loans. 

Justices Turn Back Challenge to Broader U.S. Eavesdropping

Justices Turn Back Challenge to Broader U.S. Eavesdropping

 The Supreme Court on Tuesday turned back a challenge to a federal law that broadened the government’s power to eavesdrop on international phone calls and e-mails.
The decision, by a 5-to-4 vote that divided along ideological lines, probably means the Supreme Court will never rule on the constitutionality of that 2008 law.
More broadly, the ruling illustrated how hard it is to mount court challenges to a wide array of antiterrorism measures, including renditions of terrorism suspects to foreign countries and targeted killings using drones, in light of the combination of government secrecy and judicial doctrines limiting access to the courts.

$GOOG Mozilla’s Fox Tries to Steal Spotlight and Outrun Google’s Android

$GOOG Mozilla’s Fox Tries to Steal Spotlight and Outrun Google’s Android

"
The maker of the popular Firefox web browser sent about a hundred employees — which is a sixth of its staff and a 50 percent increase from last year — and prepared a much larger stand to help it showcase its new open mobile operating system.
The hope? That by letting loose its fox in the smartphone world, it can steal some of the spotlight from Google’s Android, which dominates the market.
“We have made a more significant investment this year because we have more to say and show,” Peter Scanlon, senior director of global branding at Mozilla, said Sunday in an interview in Barcelona.
Mozilla’s new marketing message, “blaze your own path,” shows the fox from its logo unleashed and following people as they move around to explain how they can access the Internet regardless of where they are.
The question remains whether that campaign, which included a lavish presentation in front of hundreds at the luxurious Hotel Arts Barcelona, was convincing. Mozilla’s mobile software, first discussed a year ago, has been a long time coming. Phone buyers looking for a bargain may be tempted to see whether a new generation of feature phones — such as Nokia’s 105 — may do the trick and be available faster.
Mozilla does have some big names in its corner. As I wrote about yesterday, more than a dozen wireless carriers including billionaire Carlos Slim’s America Movil are supporting Mozilla’s open mobile operating system to make a range of cheaper smartphones. Firefox-based devices may arrive as early as the second quarter, Mozilla said."

Yahoo’s Mayer Risks Productivity With Work-From-Home Restriction $YHOO

"Yahoo! Inc. (YHOO) Chief Executive Officer Marissa Mayer, by ordering staff to report to offices, risks losing the productivity gains that can come from flexible work arrangements and may jeopardize her ability to lure top talent.
Jackie Reses, Yahoo’s executive vice president of people and development, sent a memo last week asking employees with work-from-home arrangements to make their way to the company’s offices, starting June.
“To become the absolute best place to work, communication and collaboration will be important, so we need to be working side-by-side,” according to the memo, whose contents were confirmed by a Yahoo employee who asked not to be identified because it’s not a public document. “Speed and quality are often sacrificed when we work from home.”

Millions Said to Be Wasted on U.S. Broadband Expansion

Millions Said to Be Wasted on U.S. Broadband Expansion

"Programs dedicating $7 billion from the 2009 U.S. stimulus plan to spread high-speed Internet service have wasted millions of dollars and unfairly competed with private companies, a lawmaker with oversight of the program said.
“The government has spent millions on equipment it did not need and on stringing fiber to areas that already had fiber,” Representative Greg Walden, of Oregon, said in an e-mail yesterday.
Walden is chairman of the House Energy and Commerce panel’s communications subcommittee, which is to hold a hearing tomorrow on the spending. The hearing is scheduled as Republicans and Democrats argue over across-the-board spending cuts set to take effect March 1 unless there’s an agreement.
“At a time when government is considering cutting meat inspectors and FAA traffic controllers to address the federal spending problem, we need to be careful how we use taxpayer dollars,” Walden said."

Firefox OS Will Take On Apple And Google In The Smartphone Wars, Starting This Summer

Firefox OS Will Take On Apple And Google In The Smartphone Wars, Starting This Summer

$GOOG $AAPL

"Mozilla, makers of the popular Firefox Internet browser, is preparing to challenge Google and Apple's grip on smartphone software.

A new Firefox operating system for mobile devices is set for a July release after winning the backing of 13 wireless service providers around the globe, including Spain's Telefonica, China Unicom and America Movil.

Mozilla is betting there's room for a software developer-friendly mobile platform alongside Apple's and Google's Android, which together power the majority of mobile devices on the planet.

The new software is based on open Web standards and is capable of operating on devices with much lower hardware requirements than today's existing crop of smarpthones, according to Mozilla.

Because the Firefox OS is open-source and Web-based, third-party developers will be free to sell mobile applications without needing to share revenue with Apple or Google."

Google Stole Apple's Thunder $GOOG $AAPL

Google Stole Apple's Thunder

While Apple has been silent, Google introduced its own laptop, the Pixel, and re-hyped Google Glass, its vision for the future of computing. Its self-driving cars are no longer the butt of jokes, but a serious technology people believe in.
Where Google was once seen as a bumbling, but well-intentioned tech giant, it now looks like a lean, focused company ready to capture the future of technology.
Apple, which was once seen as an innovation machine that only cranked out hit products is now seen as stale, boring, and adrift by many people.
It's reflected in the companies' stock prices. Apple is down 15 percent year to date, while Google is up 13 percent year to date.

A manufacturer that produces Apple iPad casings faces sanctions from the Shanghai government after discharging waste that turned a local river milky white, killing fish and leaving water unfit for crop cultivation.
On the banks of a tributary of the Railway River in the industrial zone of Songjiang, outside Shanghai, a local water worker said she was called in on lunar new year’s day after receiving a report that a discharge of waste water had turned the river white, causing residents to dub it the “milky river”.

Foxconn Hiring Freeze May Be Because Of Robots, Not Slack iPhone 5 Demand

Foxconn Hiring Freeze May Be Because Of Robots, Not Slack iPhone 5 Demand $AAPL

Foxconn’s hiring freeze may also be related to Apple’s move toward using more assemblers. For example, Foxconn rival Pegatron assembles about 40 percent of iPad minis, which have taken market share away from the original iPad, manufactured by Foxconn.
Analysts, investors and Apple fanboys (and fangirls) have kept a close eye on demand for the iPhone 5 as the company weathers increasing competition from Samsung. In January, concerns that the smartphone is underperforming were fueled by reports that iPhone 5 component orders had been cut. Exane BNP Paribas analyst Alexander Peterc estimates that Apple will sell 38 million iPhone 5s this quarter, 20 percent less than the prior period.
On the other hand, Strategy Analytics recent published a report that said the iPhone 5 became the best-selling smartphone globally in Q4, overtaking Samsung’s flagship Galaxy SIII. The research firm estimates that 27.4 million iPhone smartphones shipped worldwide during Q4, compared to 15.4 million Galaxy SIII units. But, as Natasha Lomas noted, neither company discloses quarterly handset sales and comparing the performance of the two devices is somewhat unfair, because the iPhone 5 launched last September and the Galaxy SIII came out back in May, meaning that the newer Galaxy SIV may have eaten into some of its sales.

Apple may be sued in Brazil for updating the iPad too fast

Apple may be sued in Brazil for updating the iPad too fast

"Apple could be facing a lawsuit in Brazil for updating the third-generation iPad so fast last year.
According to a report from Brazilian newspaper Jornal do Comércio, the Brazilian Institute of Politics and Law Software (IBDI) has targeted the iPad maker for what it says were unfair business practices with the release of the fourth-generation iPad model five months after launching the third-generation model in the country.
In a follow-up, Brazilian news site O Hoje adds that the suit wants Apple to give those who bought third-generation models with the latest versions and/or give buyers half of what they paid. The complaint also seeks to fine Apple a fixed amount for each unit sold.
The Jornal do Comércio report has since come under fire by tech blog Techlinhas, which notes that the IBDI has no knowledge of the complaint in the region.
Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Up until the fourth-generation iPad, Apple was on an annual release cycle, debuting a new model near the beginning of the year. That changed last October, when Apple released a new version alongside the debut of the iPad Mini. The fourth-generation is nearly indistinguishable from the second- and third-generation iPads (short of the same Retina Display found in the third-gen), though packs a faster processor, improved cameras, newer wireless networking hardware, and Apple's smaller Lightning port.
Apple last week lost the rights to the iPhone name in Brazil, a move that it's currently fighting. Local technology company Gradiente filed for the iPhone naming rights in the country years before Apple's device came to be. However the company didn't put out its own iPhone-branded product until last December when it began selling a line of touch-screen smartphones running Google's Android."

Apple patent application hints at iWatch

Apple patent application hints at iWatch

"An Apple smartwatch seems to be on the drawing board after all, according to a patent application published today.
The application -- filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in August 2011 but just published -- is titled "Bi-Stable Spring With Flexible Display." It describes a flexible touch-screen device that can display information. The device can be worn in any location, according to the patent, though one of the drawings shows it being worn around the wrist.
The patent doesn't specifically refer to the device as a smartwatch and instead envisions it as an electronic type of slap bracelet. Such bracelets are equipped with bi-stable springs that allow them to conform to the user's wrist. But several of the features described in the patent match those that would be found in a smartwatch.
"With a touch screen user input a user can accomplish a number of different tasks including adjusting the order of a current playlist, and reviewing a list of recent phone calls," the patent said. "A response to a current text message can even be managed given a simple virtual keyboard configuration across the face of the flexible display."
The device itself would use Wi-Fi or Bluetooth to communicate with another portable device, presumably a smartphone, to display real-time information on the screen. An on-board gyroscope or accelerometer would arrange the information so that it directly faces the user no matter how the device is worn."

With Veveo, a user could ask a device "show me action movies" — bringing up action results — and then modify the results with statements like, "what about Matt Damon" to filter the results by the actor and "show me the latest ones" to bring up the most recent Matt Damon movies, Vasisht said.
The user could then ask, "Who are we playing tonight?" — and the app will know you're no longer talking about action movies, Vasisht said. The app will figure out that you're asking about football, and that you're in Boston, and will speak to you with details about who the Patriots will be playing, he said.
"Voice is going to become one of the commonly expected interfaces" in the future, Vasisht said. "And this is one of the most advanced solutions relating to how people can interact with devices and apps."
The technology is a combination of natural language processing and voice recognition, he said. It is targeted for mobile devices, TVs and set-top boxes. (Check out a demo here.)

Stockholm is the latest tech epicenter

" If music service Spotify landed Stockholm on the high-tech map, companies like Klarna underscore its growing influence.
Klarna CEO Sebastian Siemiatkowski swung through town this week to meet investors at Sequoia Capital and spread the word about his online retail payments startup. Though it has earned a solid reputation in Europe — not to mention $200 million in revenue last year — Klarna ("clear" in Swedish) has yet to debut in the USA.
That might change soon, as millions of consumers turn to smartphones and tablets to make purchases. Klarna, an 800-person company operation based in Stockholm, is eyeing the U.S. market."

10 Million People Are Playing This Horrible Game

10 Million People Are Playing This Horrible Game

"Free-to-play card game Rage of Bahamut lives among the top-grossing games on the iPhone and Android charts, right up there with Temple Run 2 and Minecraft. Tokyo-based developer Cygamesrecently revealed that half of its 20 million overall players are playing Bahamut. That would make it one of the most popular games in the world.
That’s surprising because it’s also a real piece of crap.
“Bahamut’s success seems to tell today’s game designers that a game with minimal interactivity, massively disorganized UI and incredibly confusing game design is the way to hook millions of players and make a fortune,” said Arash Keshmirian, CEO of Limbic Software, in an e-mail.
For one of the most profitable English-language apps of the last year, Rage of Bahamut’s interface is shockingly ugly. The fantasy-themed trading card game looks like two Yahoo! Geocities went to war with each other, with text scattered everywhere and dial-up speed load times between every page.
You can even scroll past the top and bottom of the screen, almost as if the entire game is being rendered in some sort of makeshift mobile web browser. Since the game only works if you have a network connection, this may actually be the case.
Once you’re actually playing Bahamut, the goal is to level up and get lots of digital cards, each of which features anime artwork of goblins or scantily clad witch ladies. Level up more and get more witch ladies by completing quests and “battling” other players."

"Cheating is as old as the institution of marriage.
It might even arguably be the default mode for our species — it’s not that we have to fight to cheat; we have to fight not to cheat. Because let’s face it: It’s not that difficult for us to allow — and want to allow in — the excitement of new desires, the thrill of a new connection, the high of a new experience.
But it’s even harder in a world where technology changes the notion of space and time, breaking down some of the barriers that may have protected us from cheating before."

While Mega allows free access to 50GB of storage, there are payment plans allowing anywhere from 500GB to 4TB. The exchange rate for one bitcoin is equal to just under 20 euros.

Bitcoin purchases can be made through BitVoucher, a reseller of Mega services."

Future PCs threat to $AAPL Apple? Yes, says top analyst

Future PCs threat to Apple? Yes, says top analyst

"Apple's "limited innovation" in tablets this year will make it vulnerable to newfangled PCs -- so says a Citibank analyst.
Yes, you heard that right, PCs. While financial analysts write lots of research notes about Apple every week, this one from Citibank analyst Glen Yeung -- sent out early in the week -- got my attention.

 We believe Apple will launch an iPad Mini Retina and a thinner/lighter iPad5 (both likely sporting newer processors) in 3Q13...iPad innovation of this nature is insufficient to reverse share loss.

Whereas we see limited innovation in tablets in 2H13, we see growing innovation in PCs. The growing presence of touch-based, ultrathin, all-day notebooks at improving price points (e.g., Intel requires all Haswell-based Ultrabooks to have touch and envisions price-points as low as $599) could create competition for 10" tablets not fully anticipated by the market.
So, after getting their keisters kicked by the iPad for the last three years, PC makers may finally get some payback.
Citibank, like other analyst groups, is pegging a lot of this prognosticated PC success on new designs based on Intel's upcoming Haswell processor and Intel's stipulation that Haswell-based ultrabooks must have touch screens.
In other words, expect more designs like Microsoft's Surface Pro and Samsung's ATIV Smart PC Pro, but thinner and lighter with better battery life (though I suspect battery life won't approach that of the iPad)."

"Facebook Inc. said on Friday it had been the target of an unidentified hacker group, but it found no evidence that user data was compromised.
“Last month, Facebook security discovered that our systems had been targeted in a sophisticated attack,” the company said in a blog post posted on Friday afternoon, just before the three-day Presidents Day weekend. “The attack occurred when a handful of employees visited a mobile developer website that was compromised. The social network, which says it has more than one billion active users worldwide, also said: “Facebook was not alone in this attack. It is clear that others were attacked and infiltrated recently as well.” Facebook declined to comment on the motive or origin of the attack. A security expert at another company with knowledge of the matter said he was told the Facebook attack appeared to have originated in China."

5 Things Bill Gates Revealed on Reddit

5 Things Bill Gates Revealed on Reddit

Bill Gates hosted a Reddit AMA ("Ask Me Anything") this afternoon, covering a wide range of topics including his leadership of Microsoft, the activities of his foundation and who his favorite band is (U2, if you were wondering).
While much of the discussion went over old material (Gates at one point defended his and his wife's decision to leave only $10 million to each of their three children), he also revealed a few new insights. Also, the unfiltered nature of a Reddit AMA gave Gates a chance to put both his genius and wit on display to a crowd that consists largely of people just like him: geeks who are passionate about the Internet and technology.
Although he'd never done an AMA before, Gates seemed to "get" the dynamic and how Reddit's commenting system works. His answers were never particularly long, sometimes venturing deep into the comments to respond to an obscure query or observation. He occasionally bordered on talking points when discussing his foundation's work, but answered most questions directly and kept it light when appropriate.
When it was all over, readers walked away knowing the Microsoft co-founder (and current chairman) a little better.

Apple May Not Have A Choice But To Release A Watch $AAPL

Apple May Not Have A Choice But To Release A Watch $AAPL

Apple is reportedly developing a smart watch made from curved glass. Does it really have a choice? With iPhone sales stalling, the Cupertino innovator is in desperate need of another hit product, and not just any product: Apple needs something that consumers will refresh every 12 to 18 months. My editor Dan Lyons has his own thoughts on why these Apple watch rumors are making the rounds. But what if we take them at, pardon the pun, face value?
At Apple's size, the company must be very choosy about its products. While Apple does at times dabble in $100 million "hobbies" like Apple TV, its bread-and-butter depends upon multi-billion dollar breakout successes like the Mac, iPod, iPhone, and iPad. Apple simply isn't the kind of company that is going to release a horde of SKUs, each designed to reel in a hundred million dollars here and a hundred million dollars there.
