With every passing day, Big Data assumes new strength as a significant force
in our industry. Someone even said that Big Data is transforming business
same way IT did few decades ago.
The overall revenue (includes hardware, software, service) for Big Data is
said to be around $5.1B in 2011 and includes players such as IBM, Intel, HP,
Fujitsu, etc. This is hard to fathom! But pure-play revenue coming from
players such as Vertica, Aster, Cloudera, Greenplum, 1010Data, etc. is valued
at $468M in 2011. Then someone said the projected revenue from Big Data will
reach an astounding $53B by 2017 (source- Wikibon), growing to $10B in 2013,
$32 in 2015 and $48B in 2016. We can argue on these numbers, but let us agree
that this will be quite big. Why is that?
We all know about data growth. Facebook with 900M users in April, 2012 did

There are some 300 companies out there selling digital signage software, and
Lord knows how many more home-grown, in-house solutions. So ... how do you
make sense of it and make the right decision for your company?
I sell the pots and pans for one of those software firms. That means I have a
vested interest not only in winning business but also steering people to
other solutions when it's clear my pots and pans aren't the ones to use. I
can't afford to chase no-hopers. And I have also spent way more time in the
industry being on the other side of this – launching and running networks,
and sorting out what way to go with my own company’s technology choices. I
am by no means THE expert on this stuff, but with a new year approaching,
tightened budgets and tough, tough investors, this is as good a time as any
to provide some guidance.
For the purpose of this exercise, l... (more)
Spotted this on Engadget, which was picking up on an iSuppli analysis of
the build cost of the new Google Nexus One smartphone.
iSuppli reports a preliminary estimate of $174.15 for the cost of materials
needed to build each handset.
The research firm also congratulates Google on keeping a bill of materials
comparable to most recent smartphones while having "the most advanced
features of any smart phone ever dissected by iSuppli's Teardown Analysis
Costliest of all things was the 1GHz Snapdragon ($30.50), followed by the
AMOLED display ($23.50) and memory ($20.40) from Samsung.
The Bluetooth and 802.11n WiFi transceiver cost $8.20, and perhaps the most
egregious spend was $12.50 on a 5-megapixel camera that many of us might

iPad on Ulitzer
There were two kinds of technology companies issuing press releases today.
Goofball ones that were somehow oblivious to Apple's planned announcement,
and thought it was just another day and their stuff would get the usual
attention. And those who watched the announcement of the iPad and realized
there was excitement to leverage, and put together their own announcement.
Now just about anyone in digital signage making an announcement that somehow
tied in to the iPad would be regarded with giggles, but Nanonation is one of
only a few companies in the space that actually have some genuine Apple ties,
history and chops, so to speak.
In the hours after the celebrated tablet was announced, Nanonation issued a
release saying its propellerheads were all over this thing.
Software developer Nanonation announced plans to support and develop new
customer-facing applica... (more)
“The good thing about standards is that there are so many to choose
from.” – Dr. Tanenbaum
And so we picked SMIL, an open web standard developed by the W3C (the fellows
that brought us HTML, CSS and all the other things that make the internet
work) for our new light-weight digital signage player which, thanks to
Microsoft Silverlight, runs on a variety of platforms such as Windows, OS X,
Linux, Symbian and Windows CE.
As some of you may remember, we released SMIL support for our Oxygen media
platform a few months ago. Since then a lot has happened! Our partner IAdea
has rolled out a few hundred units of their XDS-100 players that are managed
by our platform. Furthermore we are working with many partners and customers
to roll out more SMIL-based digital signage installations.
We see great future for SMIL in the Digital Signage industry, because it
makes it easier to... (more)
This morning I happened to be standing within earshot of a couple men in
their 60s who were having a casual conversation. I've heard these folks
talking before. If I were to rank their computer experience, I would have to
put them into the category of people who are typically the butt of jokes of
entry-level support technicians worldwide. These are the guys who pay the
Geek Squad to come to their house to set up their WiFi and their HD TV.
There's nothing wrong with this, mind you - I just want to nail home the
point that the people I'm about to discuss are average joes, with less than
average computer skills.
So one guy starts complaining to the other that the subtitles on this movie
he was watching weren't working properly. I didn't think too much of it and
went about my business. Then I hear that he is talking about the VLC player
and he's complaining that the s... (more)
