Developer Notebook: Watch Out!! They Want To Ruin Your Creation!

Developer Notebook: Watch Out!! They Want To Ruin Your Creation!

Every developer of mobile applications faces the same issues: discovery, monetization, and security. Well, security wasn’t at the forefront until something happened that changed the industry. As seen recently, the mobile world for the first “real” time has been under attack. Last week’s attack on Android has shown there are serious flaws in security. Experts in security have predicted that smartphones will be targeted heavily as more users migrate from computers to smartphones in 2011. Moreover, the attack is even new to the world of computing. For the first time hackers can send malware packets and it costs the user real money.

While Google has reportedly expunged over 50 apps on the Android Market, it is very clear that malware and piracy on mobile devices are at the forefront of the new generation of hackers. It is important for mobile developers to begin a paradigm shift in the business and technology models in maintaining a healthy marketplace for mobile users. And more importantly, for the business. In the meantime Google and the likes will have to battle quickly to change the mindset of the community. After last week’s attack Google responded with some vague notions of their plans to help in the cyber war.

Katy, Gaga & Ke$ha: Wanna Be Like Them or Wanna Be Like Yourself?

Katy, Gaga & Ke$ha: Wanna Be Like Them or Wanna Be Like Yourself?

Even in this Internet age, when people talk about today’s mainstream popular music, three names come to mind more than any other—Katy, Gaga, and Ke$ha.  These three ladies are in various stages of touring at the time I’m writing this, but as sure as they are each on a different label controlled by one of the big music-industry groups, they share many things in common besides being just catchy dance-pop singers.  Each of these three grew up in the shadows of the USA’s three leading entertainment cities—Katy was born in Santa Barbara, just up the coast from Los Angeles; Lady Gaga was born in the New York City area; and Ke$ha was born in L.A., but raised in Nashville.

Each of them has also had multiple chart-topping songs, and has combined those with their own levels of over-the-top flamboyance to make for exciting worldwide concert tours that, for all three, have been a far cry from what they did before they hit it big.

Is Video Webcasting Of Sports Teams Workable?

Is Video Webcasting Of Sports Teams Workable?

Recently, Bloomberg’s BusinessWeek reported that YouTube was in negotiations with the NBA and NHL, and that an executive with YouTube’s owners, Google, is also negotiating with other pro sports leagues worldwide.

Since YouTube is, of course, owned by Google, and they have lots of money, they are the ones who seem to be in position to go after the big leagues.  But what about the smaller leagues?

Many minor pro leagues, such as in baseball, hockey and indoor football, don’t televise their games as often as the big ones do, simply because the money’s not there from the cable or local-TV content providers to pay for the rights to show the games live. Some of those minor-league teams do broadcast their games in sound only, either by buying time on a local radio station [because radio stations can’t afford to buy the rights to air the games on their own, like they used to], or by webcasting on the Internet, using a provider like Audio Sports Online or even uStream. In the case of the latter, a few teams will use single-camera video.

Foo Fighters – Red Carpet – SXSW Film Premiere of ‘Back and Forth’ + Bob Mould

Foo Fighters – Red Carpet – SXSW Film Premiere of ‘Back and Forth’ + Bob Mould

“Back and Forth,” directed by James Moll, was an exquisite look at the life of a full-fledged, respected, American rock band—Foo Fighters. The line to get in to see “Back and Forth” last night was wrapped around the block of The Paramount Theatre on Congress Avenue in Austin, TX, as the SXSW Film Festival rolled on. Just as I was entering The Paramount, the Foo Fighters arrived, and I was able to capture their moment—a mere glimpse into the fantastical elements of their life. Seen in this video are Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett, Nate Mendel—Foo Fighters.

The ‘Little Monsters’ Will Learn When They Get Older

The ‘Little Monsters’ Will Learn When They Get Older

Lady Gaga calls her fans “monsters,” and in just the past year, two of them, each in their early teens, have been inspired by the Lady to cover her hits, put themselves on YouTube, and become instant sensations.  First, there was Greyson Chance with 38 million YouTube views for his version of “Paparazzi.”  Now, there’s 10-year-old Maria Aragon of Winnipeg, Canada, who’s been seen 12 million times already with her rendition of Gaga’s latest hit, “Born This Way.”

Greyson has parlayed his Gaga-inspired YouTube success into being signed by a major label, recording an album in which he composed some original songs, and earning an opening-act slot on a national concert tour headlined by Miranda Cosgrove of iCarly fame. One would not be surprised if Maria gets something similar down the road, but when she was interviewed last week on a Toronto radio show, the host ended up having her conference-in with Gaga herself, which led to Maria getting tickets, and perhaps, an onstage appearance at Gaga’s tour stop in Toronto next month. Time will tell.

The Foo Fighters are coming to the big screen tonight with their world premiere documentary “Back and Forth,” by Director James Moll (Oscar-winning 1998 documentary “The Last Days”), at this year’s South By Southwest Film Festival.

According to SPIN.com, “Moll’s visual portrait will chronicle the Foos’ 16-year-history, from its start as a one-man project started by Grohl up through the sessions of their latest album. The documentary promises to be a no-holds-barred look of the band.”

The Social Gamer Paradox. Do Hardcore Gamers Play Social Games?

The Social Gamer Paradox. Do Hardcore Gamers Play Social Games?

I have played Mafia Wars, Farmville, Cityville, and Cartown. I don’t think I would describe myself as a social gamer, but in some respect I think I always have been. I am now rethinking my gaming habits. Like most of you in the gaming community, I have a set genre of games that I prefer playing. To be honest, I am a first-person shooter type gamer. I haven’t taken the leap into MMO’s as a type of social gaming, but as I have stated before I think I have always been a social gamer. I enjoy racing friends on my Xbox 360, as well as fighting off bands of zombies. But mostly, I enjoy doing it with my friends. But as we “hardcore” gamers move into the new world of gaming, are we really doing something we haven’t been doing for years? Yes. But, not because it is social. Rather, it is because of the types of games we play.

About four years ago I was walking the massive aisles at E3 when it donned on me, I am willing to play just about any game as long as it is fun. I have been drawn to the more realistic shooters and adventure games because of the way they look, the complexity of the games, and the stories. But is that what makes me a gamer? I don’t always need to play complex games that are rendered with some artistic beauty that stuns even the novice gamer. No, I need to play something fun.

Declaring Independence from the 90/90 Dilemma

Declaring Independence from the 90/90 Dilemma

Is signing with a major label still the best idea for a recording artist? True, it would be if you want the easy marketing, but 90% of artists who sign with the majors are going to fail, and 90% of new releases are not going to sell a million and go platinum.

It’s a 90/90 dilemma that not only explains why two of the four major labels are up for sale, but perhaps that’s why CD Baby founder Derek Sivers said back in 2007 that “90% of your career is now up to you.”

It’s a ‘Hurricane Party’ Par-tay during SXSW!

It’s a ‘Hurricane Party’ Par-tay during SXSW!

Arguably, the coolest new app on the planet this year at SXSW 2011 is Hurricane Party, which deserves a big, “Woot!” For those of us who have ever lived around an area, think South Texas, where hurricane warnings and tropical storms have created an instant need to commune, gather, take refuge, etc., the term ‘hurricane party’ conjures up an image of party-on-the-spot—and that’s exactly what this app does:

“Hurricane Party is a free mobile app that helps friends find, share, and create spontaneous parties. It’s social networking that’s actually social.”

SXSW 2011 ‘The Power of the International Geek Community’ and Sound-Bites with Tim O’Reilly

SXSW 2011 ‘The Power of the International Geek Community’ and Sound-Bites with Tim O’Reilly

I’m at the Austin Convention Center as SXSW “Day 1″ is officially underway. Parking was almost a nightmare, but I narrowly escaped the loop-around by finding an open lot on 7th & Trinity, phew. On the way in, I spotted one of Chris Sacca’s latest ventures—Uber Cab. I had seen him tweet that Uber was making its debut in the Austin market during SXSW.

While awaiting keynote speakers, or interview rather, with the amazing Tim O’Reilly (O’Reilly Media) by Jason Calacanis in Ballroom D on Level 4, everybody is friendly and opening up conversations centered around technology and living. For example, the two guys next to me are talking about the latest trends in education-based technology, Bill Gates, and The Food Network.

The opening remarks from the SXSW camp centered around “The power of the international geek community,” and indeed, that is the feeling of the day and perhaps the week here as the SXSW Interactive, Film & Music Conference rolls on. As well, SXSW has set up relief efforts for Japan, hoping to raise $10,000 this week. To donate, please visit SXSW4Japan. Yes, the power of the international geek community is alive.

SXSW 2011: Day 1 “Hot Tech Cold Beer”

SXSW 2011: Day 1 “Hot Tech Cold Beer”

I’m headed to the Austin Convention Center to begin my SXSW 2011 journey, and I am looking forward to a variety of keynote, distinguished, and featured speakers; notably, Barry Diller (“Insights On All Things Media”), J. Craig Venter (“Does The Future Include Synthetic Life”), Tim Ferriss (“The 4-Hour Body: Hacking the Human Body), Guy Kawasaki (“The Art of Enchantment”), and Gary Vaynerchuk (Vaynermedia), to name a few.

A quick visual scan of the attendees during registration yesterday indeed saw the “hipster-geek” style in action and yesterdays evening activities saw no shortage of the creative drive, with Capital Factory (an early stage accelerator program for tech startups) hosting a “Start-Up Crawl – Hot Tech Cold Beer” meet the founders tour around the Austin-area; replete with shuttle service and of course, cold beer. Fun!

Whether you are a casual gamer of play to win, mobile gaming has somehow entered your life in a big way. Myths about mobile gaming are a time-tested activity in mobile gaming, from the idea that mobile carriers actually understand the gaming community to how many people play and where they play.

CEO: YOU. Navigating The Digital Frontier In Today’s New Music Business From The New Music Seminar

CEO: YOU. Navigating The Digital Frontier In Today’s New Music Business From The New Music Seminar

If one of your biggest questions as an independent artist is, “How do I break through the noise and get my music heard,” then stay tuned as I outline key take-away components to help your artist career, as presented by CEO’s, Co-Founders, Managers and Partners of some of the hottest music-business technology companies today, who recently attended and showcased their wares at The New Music Seminar that took place in Los Angeles, February 14-16, 2011.

Although day two of The New Music Seminar was lightly attended early in the day, in my estimation it was indeed THE place to be and a hotspot for information and accessibility to some of today’s biggest music tech players—like Reverb Nation, Nimbit, Pandora, Topspin, TAG Strategic, and Sound Exchange, along with artists and managers, like Moby, Lisa Loeb, Mike Posner’s manager, Daniel Weisman, and RuPaul, plus merchandise companies like Jackprints, and artist-entrepreneurs, like Author Gilli Moon, and more—in what is now aptly coined: The New Music Business.

LTE – Long Term Evolution: The New, Faster, Stronger Network For Mobile

LTE – Long Term Evolution: The New, Faster, Stronger Network For Mobile

The world is changing at a rapid pace in the mobile industry. With the onslaught of smartphones, the need for higher network speeds is becoming more crucial than ever. Every carrier is marketing the next generation in speed. First there was GSM and CDMA (3G is how it is typically marketed). Now 4G has all but taken over the marketing of every carrier—reminds me of the latest Best Buy commercial; Outdated World. Funny! True. (Best Buy Buy Back Program: Outdated World.) So, what does that mean for us? Let’s start with some basics. Here is a breakdown of the current speeds and how they relate to us:

CDMA: Allowing for a maximum speed of about 3.1mbps (about 600kbps in practice), which is similar to what a DSL line has to offer and 1mbps upload (about 300kbps in practice).

GSM: 3G networks typically have a maximum speed of 7.2mbps (around 2mbps in practice) download and 1.4mbps upload (more around the 700kbps in practice). Similar to cable speeds.

Radiohead Drops New Album

Radiohead Drops New Album

Radiohead’s 2000 masterpiece, Kid A, came with a song called “How to Disappear Completely.” On the band’s eighth album, Thom Yorke has a new magic trick up his sleeve. “I will disappear,” he sings. “I will slip into the groove.” Yorke sings that line on a track called “Lotus Flower” over gray electronic scrapple and the iciest version of a good-footin’ James Brown hustle imaginable. It sets the tone for Radiohead’s funkiest record, and one of their most elusive. For these guys, disappearing completely and disappearing into the groove are pretty much the same thing.

Ciara Wants Out

Ciara Wants Out

While some say that being on a major label can get a recording act some decent exposure, it can also be costly. The cost can be financial, in ways such as “recoupable expenses” for recording and promoting an album, and “360 deals” in which labels take in a percentage of the artist’s total income; as well as artistic, when, for example, you try to push your latest single at your own expense, but the label won’t support you.

Ciara is a current example of the artistic cost, never mind the financial. The urban songstress, whose recent feud with Rihanna has been a big entertainment story on both cable TV and Twitter, recently posted on her Facebook page that Jive Records, one of many labels owned by one of the recording industry’s “big 4″, Sony Music Group–part of the Sony Corporation that also makes content for TV and movies, as well as equipment to play their video and audio content on—has not been sharing what Ciara says is “the same views on who I am as an artist.”
