Google’s Eric Schmidt was on a panel at the World Economic Forum in 2015 in Davos. One claim grabbed my attention: “The internet will disappear”. He suggested that the internet as we know it to date will simply disappear in everything you’re wearing or interacting with. It will simply be part of our everday life, all the time.
This is not just a forecast. It’s already real and implemented in dozens of different devices of which you don’t even realize their device functionality.
Compass.to sketches for SXSW 2015
Everybody says this about Vegas. What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. Well, lucky for us, that wasn’t quite true in our case. We had an extremely productive, non-stop-hustling, work-around-the-clock routine when attending the CES 2015 at the beginning of the year in Las Vegas. A few weeks later, we found ourselves in the same situation at the Mobile World Congress 2015 in Barcelona where we showcased Compass.to in over 140 different presentations. Now we’re at SXSW 2015, where you breathe and sleep music among other amazing stuff. And probably, what we do in Austin, won’t just stay in Austin.
Compass.to, Facebook, and more innovative companies at MWC 2015
As MWC 2015 in Barcelona moves along, the big fish companies have launched their new tablets, smartphones, latest mobile trends, and innovative technologies. Compass.to’s CEO, Alex Bierling, discussed with engineering director at Facebook Connectivity Lab, Yael Maguire, about our technology and the potential use of our application. Truly exciting.
Mobile Connectivity at MWC
The Mobile World Congress 2015 in Barcelona is just around the corner. As we mentioned in a previous post, we’ll be showcasing the work we’ve been doing here at Compass.to. Anticipating what will happen in the Catalonia province, we are firm believers that we will witness some of the greatest mobile innovations as far as technology is concerned. One issue with this tough, is that the more mobile applications are released, the sense of connectivity and community among mobile users seem to go down the priority list of mobile developers. We believe smartphones and mobile devices need to bridge the gap between the physical and digital world, while providing real value and connecting with real people.
Since we started in the beginning of 2012, we’re reviewing all our start-up adventures, developments and even our mental health on a regular basis. This time we thought it’s helpful for others who are planning to run the same path as we did. We’d love to share some insights collected in “6 lessons” with you every first Friday of the month.
