Hi Tomi,

Congratulation on Forbes things. I hope your article on Nokia/Elop would got bigger attention.

All roads do indeed lead to mobile. Thank you for expressing it so eloquently, Tomi.

Now I am looking for case histories of companies that were not mobile, lost customers (bounce rate), became mobile, and actually increased sales by a measurable percentage or dollar figures to persuade otherwise "too busy" small business owners to jump into the fray. Suggestions?

Tomi,

As usual, well stated article. Happy New Year.
"It's only just beginning" re mobile, media and what we want now!. Will be in touch soon with updates.
..somewhat of a surprise with Forbes given your article re Parmy Olson / Forbes in July 09 - Well done! - [they can't deny the facts / truth]

Baron95,

I like what you've touched on..

"a collection of devices with internet access"

The operators, in my opinion for a few years now, WILL become plain old ISP's one way or another..

I couldn't agree more. That being said I have a question for you. This might be better explained in an other post but here it goes. What will be the effect of feature phone or "dumb phones". Everybody is talking smart phones, but can't we do a lot of these things also with "dum phones". I tend to believe that as exiting as the smartphone industry is , people tend to forget the rest of the ecosystem and how much faster the industry could grow if they also gave some love to the " dumb phones" / feature phone.

"I disagree," she said. "For most people, if they prefer cream, they like a lot of sugar, or at least a moderate amount. Those who drink it with just a touch of sugar usually put milk in it, or drink it black."

Hermes UK

It s well known that the hermes uk is one of the biggest names in luxury, so we are coming

up with the expensive price. Do you think that Hermes Birkin bags from our online store are

coming with a reasonable price? It is a fact that most people would think would never

happen, but the fact is that these bags are very popular in the price that most people have

the ability to deliver on our reputation online, so you should come and take this

opportunity quickly, are good things that make you excited.

So we have giant industries, who all see the future of their worlds heading to mobile. What of other trends?There is a giant global trend called 'social networking' which goes far beyond commerce - just witness last year's Arabic Spring and the role of Twitter, YouTube and Facebook to the revolutions. This blog was launched to celebrate the concept of 'Communities Dominate' with the signature book of this blog (my fourth) ie Communities Dominate Brands that we wrote with Alan Moore in 2005. We said social networking was the biggest change in the past 100 years. Others have put it in equally dramatic scale. Business Week said it was the biggest change to humankind since the Industrial Revolution and the Economist took a more business-oriented view, stating in 2005 that companies who would not adjust to social networks would not survive. And more recently Google's Chairman has said on Charlie Rose that social networking and user-generate content like citizen journalism was 'the defining aspect of humanity for the next 20 years'. A huge huge HUGE change to our lives, definitely. So is it more important than mobile.
