The Top 10 tech trends for 2012

The Top 10 tech trends for 2012 | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

This piece is by Pete Cashmore for CNN online.


Intro:


From the continuing rise of tablet devices to the daily-deals craze and the return of the Internet IPO, 2011 has been a transformative year for technology.


Here's what caught my attention:


Touch Computing


New input methods will be the dominant trend of 2012. Tablet computers such as the iPad might seem like a nice alternative to desktop and laptop computers, but I believe they're more than that:


**They're replacements.


** the mouse will be superseded by touchscreens.


**The signs are obvious: Windows 8 and Mac OS X Lion, the latest desktop operating systems, borrow heavy from their mobile counterparts. These new interfaces essentially impose a touchscreen-inspired interface over the traditional desktop environment.


**Over time, this half-step will become a whole one, and mobile operating systems will dominate.


****The transition won't be complete by the end of 2012, but we'll be much further down the path, and using computer mice much less often.



**Here's the takeway to get you thinking about how your product or service fits into the bigger picture.


In short, 2012 is all about new ways to interact with our devices through touch and voice control, new lightweight ways to share content, a revolution in mobile payments and a plethora of rich Web applications -- not to mention the hundreds of new innovations that we've yet to dream up. I can't wait.

The New Pearltrees iPad App Enables A New Kind of Content Curation

Exclusive first look: Pearltrees iPad app enables new kind of content curation

 

How do you save and share the web with other people? Pearltrees has a new idea: you put your favorite Google+ posts, photos, tweets, videos, blogs, and other things on the Web into a "pearl" and then arrange these into "trees."

 

That was OK on a normal computer, but when you get the touch capabilities of tablets it's transformative, especially as a way to find new interests.

 

Imagine if Google+ were laid out in such a way. This is awesome and I'll be using it a lot now.

 

Here's an exclusive video look at this new app with CEO +Patrice Lamothe.

 

A very interesting French company. They are headquartered in Paris. We filmed this at the Ritz in Half Moon Bay where +Oliver Starr and Patrice visited me and showed it to me for the first time last week.

Pearltrees have all the suitable players they need to make full use of their database. With Pearltrees joining the Apple arena, it will surely provide an enjoyable experience of manipulating the pearls to its users. The iPad can be regarded as their gateway to the mass market. read more http://tablettechtoday.com/blogposts/pearltrees-launches-its-first-ipad-app.html

We’re Curating Cool Curators (and Want More!) | Content Curation on Inside Flipboard

We’re Curating Cool Curators (and Want More!) | Content Curation on Inside Flipboard | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

“Cool Curators” is the Flipboard name for people who collect and share (usually via Twitter or a blog) interesting stuff from around the Web. These folks have their own category in our Content Guide, and still others are scattered about in places like Art & Photos and Tech & Science.

 

A few more cool curators are building curated sections just for Flipboard. Take @DodoFlip, for example, whose collection of “endangered objects (and other stuff)” is actually tied to a book released by HarperCollins.....

News360 is Changing the Content Delivery Game

Scobleizer interviews the CEO of News360, really interesting and this product is definitely something to take a look at. Watch this video, it's not going to do streaming, it's a news reader, business, sports, stories, breaking news. They'll show you what's happening on a topic from many other sources, they give you an excerpt, they scroll you to the exact spot in the story, it's like google news but done much better, paying attention to the user's experience.

 

Who is this app best for?

 

Everyone who is interested in the news will be their market. They have 5,000 users right now and anticipate 20,000 by the end of the year. This app is free.

News360 is Changing the Content Delivery Game

 

September 1, 2011 By Robert Scoble

 

Posted by Kat Armstrong.

 

You’ll find a lot of news apps for your iPad, but there’s virtually nothing available for Android, the iPhone, a RIM Playbook, Windows Phone 7 devices or even your desktop. News360 is changing the game. The application makes use of semantic analysis to keep you informed of major ongoing events – and to give you content that is relevant to you.

 

The company’s CEO took the time to talk to me about the reasons their offering is something that you’re going to want. This app is in a very crowded space. They’re not only having to compete with things such as Flipboard. News360 also has to watch out for stand-alone apps such as the NY Times and the Wall Street Journal. What makes this particular product stand out above the crowd?

Flipboard Allows You To Transform Your Favorite Content into Your Own Ad Free Magazine

This is a great way for anyone to aggregate and curate their favorite content and make it into an ad free magazine on their IPad.

For anyone who owns an iPad, it’s no surprise that Flipboard is a breakthrough. The one-year-old application allows you to instantly turn any news site, social feed, or photo stream into a slick, tablet-optimized, ad-free magazine — a pretty neat parlor trick. Apple selected it as their app of the year and Time listed it as one of their top 50 innovations of 2010. Some people see it as a clever new way to browse their Facebook and Twitter content; others see it as an affront to copyright law; and a few even envision it as the future of publishing. I prefer to think of it as sliced bread.

Thought Leaders Discuss The Future of Curation & Social Media

Thought Leaders Discuss The Future of Curation & Social Media | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
We asked Mark Cuban, Dennis Crowley, Gina Bianchini, and more than a dozen others. Here's what they said.


This article by Dan Frommer and Jen Ortiz for Business Insider links to a slideshow with quotes from major Social Media company CEOs and co-founders, intellectuals and a Curated Twitter persona, among others about their takes on the future of Social Media. 


Here's just one of them, from Dae Mellencamp, CEO of Vimeo:


**** "The future of social media is the loss of the distinction between media and social interaction online. Mass media and social media will be seamlessly integrated across devices and platforms to offer relevant, dynamic, personalized experiences for people anywhere.


**Discoverability and the import of editorial curation will not be lost, but rather inherently incorporated into the environments for richer and more customized experiences."

20 Stunning Social Media Statistics Plus Infographic

Great Post by Jeff Bullas http://www.jeffbullas.com/2011/09/02/20-stunning-social-media-statistics/


Curated by JanLGordon covering "Content Curation, Social Media & Beyond"


Excerpt:



Do you wonder why your productivity has dropped over the past 2 – 3 years?


There is a time sink and its not Television!


Those of us who are connected to the internet and that is 2 billion of us, have been distracted by social multi-media publishing machines that are pumping out staggering amounts of content with enticing high definition images and videos!


**You cannot escape their allure as they tempt you to log in when you are out and about with either with your laptop, iPad or smart phone.


**These enticing, tempting distractions are robbing us of time that should be spent doing productive work like washing your car, cleaning the house or doing your tax… and I know how much you all enjoy those activities!


**I'll add one more, spending quality time with loved ones and friends.....

The Evolution of Digital: Entering the Era of Curation

The Evolution of Digital: Entering the Era of Curation | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

Thought leaders from major brands discuss how digital technology and the use of curation is helping consumers connect with brands on many platforms. Lots on insights and good information.

 

What caught my attention:

 

"How are we consuming content? How we're being effected by what we read. The social fabric of how we consume media is changing. We get news on our smartphones, Ipads, accessing the social graph through multiple channels. We're never unplugged, we're always checking FB, Twitter, email."

 

Trusted souces who curate quality content consistently by adding context, will be very important as all of this evolves. Brands who educate their consumers on how to access their content in ways that fit their consumption habits and make it user friendly will thrive.

News360 2.0 Personalizes News Aggregation

News360 2.0 Personalizes News Aggregation | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

I just ran across this post from August 10th, I didn't see this before and maybe some of you didn't.  The new personalization layer in News360 is still automated, but it harnesses the user's own human qualities.

 

Here's an intro:

 

"News360, a news reader app available on most mobile devices and tablets, has just announced version 2.0, which adds a layer of personalization to the news shown to each user, whereas it was just an aggregator before."

 

News360, a news reader app available on most mobile devices and tablets, has just announced version 2.0, which adds a layer of personalization to the news shown to each user, whereas it was just an aggregator before. The update also launches a beta Web version of the service, so you can use it on the desktop. Finally, the new version adds a timeline view, which allows you to track a story's development over time.

 

When News360 launched, it simply pulled in coverage of stories from multiple sources, like Google News does, as well as Twitter discussions of the topic. It offered a few ways for users to go more in-depth, with image galleries, great definitions of terms and the ability to manually add more personalized feeds by topic. It certainly provided more content than a human-curated service, like Newsy, but it lacked that human quality of editorial discernment. The new personalization layer in News360 is still automated, but it harnesses the user's own human qualities.

AOL launches first Curated Tablet Magazine

AOL launches first Curated Tablet Magazine | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
AOL has launched its first tablet magazine, Editions, to take on publishers such as News Corp and Seven Publishing.


It is the latest in a string of personalised ’magazine’ apps designed specifically for tablets, in particular Apple’s iPad.

Earlier this year News Corp launched its iPad-only news proposition The Daily to much fanfare, while Richard Branson’s lifestyle iPad-only magazine, Project, produced by Seven Publishing, will soon reach its tenth edition.
