I wondered how long it would take for the wheels to come off the standard mobile model that we’ve all known for the last few years. Today I think you’ll be able to plot a turning point for the mobile industry, at least in Europe and the UK in particular. The challenger network here in […]

I popped into the Covent Garden Apple Store this evening to buy a new MacBook Pro laptop. I decided to buy there-and-then because I needed the utility. I wanted the machine immediately rather than waiting. It turns out that this is perhaps the wrong approach for me because I really don’t enjoy the standard experience. […]
I wrote this post for this week’s Bizcrowd newsletter and thought it might be useful for a few readers here at Mobile Industry Review. Creating a partnership is fraught with difficulty. I’ve seen many work fabulously, but I’ve also seen a lot of poorly matched partnerships descend into business hell. I put together 10 questions […]
Thank you to all the readers who came along to World Travel Market’s Mobile Travel Panel yesterday afternoon. If you recall the topic was, “Desktop is dead! Long live mobile travel!” Andrew Cocker, Chief Marketing Officer of Skyscanner gave a stimulating presentation for the first 25 minutes. He included a load of statistics and perspective, […]
Over the last half of the year I have become increasingly frustrated at the service level Vodafone have been offering on my iPhone’s 3G data connection. It’s been really difficult to get much done without depending on WiFi. It was so bad at some points that I was mentally planning my data communications according to […]
Here’s the answer: Bizcrowd. It’s the NatWest/RBS powered B2B community aimed at small businesses across the UK and beyond. I took over running the service in May and it’s been a bit of a whirlwind. As you might have noticed it’s not left me much time to rant about the state of the mobile industry […]
Today I’m speaking at World Travel Market 2013, the world’s largest and very best travel exhibition hosted at ExCel London. This will be the third WTM I’ve attended, if memory serves. Last year was a blur of meetings, videos, interviews and ridiculously late nights. I should definitely have booked a hotel. This year is a […]
Anyone using Hailo today will have seen what I’ve just seen — a Halloween inspired Hailo figure. Nice touch!
Good friend of Mobile Industry Review (and occasional contributor) Michael Selvidge is amongst the partners running this Kickstarter listing for what promises to be a thoroughly brilliant event. You’ve heard of the Homebrew Computer Club, right? Jobs, Wozniack and so on? They all got together there. The Personal Computer revolution all started there. Sort of. […]
I was reading The Times this morning looking for Bizcrowd ads. I can’t quite remember the advertising schedule we’re operating with the media. I have it written somewhere in a spreadsheet and I routinely keep getting the days and newspapers wrong. So today I bought The Times. I scrolled paged through the paper and didn’t […]
Maybe it’s just a very big hand?
A question that is bothering me. I walked by the EE store in Islington this afternoon and saw this sign outside: Isn’t that meant to be impossible in the first week of an iPhone launch?
