Growing number of mobile devices

- 5 MIN READ - 30 Jul 2013

Have you noticed that in past few years we hear less and less about personal computers and laptops, while at the same time the mobile industry updates are big part of our daily news?

Of course it is understandable with all the exciting new technologies like smartphones and tablets, which probably   add a bit more value than bigger and more robust devices like computers.

Highly likely that we will never get to the point where personal computers are actually gone from our everyday life. While not being physically on our table, the hardware pieces are part of other devices like TVs, home automation systems or if you will – smart mirrors which display you morning news while brushing your teeth. Majority of the work tasks can be already now solved using smartphones, while leaving the computing part to the enormous server parks, which common people will never see during their lifetime.

Mobile World Live has stated, that comparing to the last year same time in the second quarter, there has been shipped almost double number of mobile devices from 156.5 million units to 229.6 million in Q2 2013 (read more). Understandably, where there is a demand, there is a offer – so actually that tells us that people all around the world are willing to buy more and more smartphones. Of course at some regions, developing countries, it is just a new wave of growing trend, while in Europe, USA and China  people probably are exchanging their old devices or choosing new smartphones and tablets over a new laptops or desktop computers.

Does this growing number of mobile devices also mean more SMSs being sent all over the world? I certainly hope so, since the SMS has proven to be one of the best ways of communication with a personal touch, over a distance, next to the phone calls.

Startup Conferences: What’s the point? (Slush 2017)

20 Oct 2017

With Slush coming up in about a month, it’s a good time ponder the purpose of large startup conferences. Many entrepreneurs head to conferences, like Slush, around the world and throughout the year looking for investments from venture capitalists and angel investors, yet there’s a lot more to gain from startup conferences. Think about it: there will be over 17,000 motivated and creative people in one place at one time. Get creative and gain as much as you can out of the experience.

The economics behind undelivered, failed SMS messages    

17 Oct 2017

The cost and full impact of undelivered or failed messages isn’t immediately clear. The financial impact is not simply the combination of the failed SMS and the cost to resend the message, which isn’t very much at times. There are other indirect costs that result from undelivered SMS messages that matter from a financial perspective. Let’s take a deeper look into the ripple effect of undelivered messages, which make the reasons behind our focus on SMS delivery quality even more clear.

Here are a few examples.

Fraud and Security: 2FA Considerations for PSD2

10 Oct 2017

The second Payment Services Directive (PSD2) is less than three months away from enforcement. While the regulation’s text is lengthy, a key component of the law is its extended reach in comparison to the first directive. PSD2 applies to all payment service providers and affiliates, including account information service providers and payment initiation service providers. In addition, the law applies when at least one part of the transaction is in the European Union. This means that payment service providers and their affiliates outside of the EU must comply with the law when the payer is in the EU. The additional geographical reach guarantees the same level of security expectations for all EU residents regardless of the location of the payment service provider.
