The Comunicano Daily for Thursday November 13, 2014
The Comunicano Daily
After a hiatus, The Comunicano Daily is back. Today, we'll lead off with what is a stellar review by ZDNET's Matt Miller about client Sonim's new XP7 AndroidSmartphone. Back in 2005 when Comunicano launched the Nokia Blogger Relations Program Matt was one of the first "pro" bloggers we contacted because he lives smartphones and has now for well over ten years.
When you read Matt's review you'll quickly realize the difference between the typical "look what's new" like some web sites and publications tend to produce and a review from someone who has actually put a product or service through tests and usage to draw their own conclusions.
Summary: More and more people are hitting the slopes, diving through muddy pits, leaping over fire, and working in extreme weather conditions. The Sonim XP7 can handle all of these arenas and more. Field workers, outdoor sports participants, and those with extremely active lifestyles often end up destroying powerful touchscreen smartphones.
Amazon Prime Air is getting ready to fly...at least in the UK in tests. As someone using Amazon Fresh, Prime Delivery and Shop and Save programs I can see how the drone delivery program can give a lift to all of them.
If you can't wait 24 hours to get your hands on a book, DVD, or video game without breaking out into a cold sweat, get excited (and maybe look into moving). Same day Amazon deliveries just moved a step closer with the news that the company will be testing drones in Cambridge ASAP.
Samsung has just unveiled a sneak preview of a new camera called Project Beyond, which is a 3D-capturing 360-degree camera designed to capture videos designed to be displayed on the Gear VR. Developing...
Privacy evokes a constellation of concepts for Americans-some of them tied to traditional notions of civil liberties and some of them driven by concerns about the surveillance of digital communications and the coming era of "big data."
A year after Facebook last changed its privacy policies, the company is proposing another round of changes to its rules. This time, the focus is on explaining how the service works in simpler, clearer language, including a new animated dashboard that attempts to answer common questions like how to delete a post or who can see the comments you make on someone else's post.
Tired of only seeing adverts 99 percent of the time? While Apple's already announced intentions to take over the final one percent with iBeacon, Samsung's just today getting in on the action. The Korean electronics giant has a website introducing Samsung "Proximity," a "mobile marketing platform that connects consumers with places via cutting-edge Samsung location and context-aware technology."
Randall Stephenson, speaking at an investor conference, weighs in on President Obama's position on Net neutrality and its plans to buy Mexican carrier Iusacell. AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson warned that he would hold off on many of its capital investment plans if the uncertainty over how the government would regulation the Internet persists.
Posted: WASHINGTON - On Monday, President Barack Obama went public with his support of an aggressive approach to protecting net neutrality. Shortly after that, Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler told a gathering of business representatives and public interest groups that he was taking the president's comments under advisement and that he would need the groups' support in the coming fight over net neutrality, according to multiple sources in the meeting.
From the start of the blogging era and even before that, with the dawn of search engines, writing for SEO was usually the coin of the realm. We've always felt at Comunicano that writing for your audience was the right approach for organic search rankings. It seems the balance of power is shifting more in the direction we've always believed in, as long as you know what people are searching for.
"Yeah, those keywords have a lot of search volume, but we don't want to write content just for SEO." This is a common apprehension of some clients these days, now that the more literal interpretations of "content is king" are dying off and Panda penalties have started to make it sink in that the content on your website actually has to be meaningful beyond a robot recognizing keyword density in a slapdash pile of 300 words.
