OpenSocial’s Failed Promise: Only 0.7% of Apps Have Crossed Networks (Updated)

first_imgA Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… marshall kirkpatrick Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification OpenSocial was intended to help everyone else keep up with the huge success of the Facebook platform. If there’s one clear market leader, everyone else has a common interest in creating a standard that will help scale the market opportunity on their platforms vs. what Facebook can offer. It hasn’t worked out that way, though. Outside observers hoped that OpenSocial would allow for user data to be transmitted from one site to another. People thought this was the coming of Data Portability, though OpenSocial advocates quickly said that wasn’t the intent. It was just for apps to port, not user data. There is a lot of innovation going on in OpenSocial – it’s a shame the platform isn’t better appreciated.Below: I discuss OpenSocial in March of last year on G4TV, forced to break the host’s heart about data portability!Video Games – E3 2009 – Attack of the ShowWhy hasn’t cross-network development happened though? There are a few theories. The most common is that though there is a common bed of code across all the different social network containers, each of them is also tweaked just enough that it’s not that easy to “write once.” When that became apparent, OpenSocial advocates started saying that the standard still made it a lot easier to develop for multiple networks. So if not “write once, deploy everywhere” then perhaps it was “write once and then take a lot less time to write for elsewhere than you’d have to otherwise.”Clearly developers haven’t taken advantage of that opportunity.Google’s Kevin Marks, one of the leading public faces for OpenSocial, told us today that there are serious cultural differences between the networks and that this could help explain why there hasn’t been more cross pollination. One look through the directory makes it clear though that while the countless “hot bikini girl” apps may not translate from MySpace to LinkedIn well, all the other networks have their own isolated versions of many of the same insipid apps.The most viable explanation could be that Facebook is in fact the only game in town for the most sophisticated developers. That’s a real shame, because it’s never good for innovation for there to be only one game in town. Tags:#social networks#web#Yahoo Related Posts When the Google-led OpenSocial campaign launched in October 2007 it aimed to give developers a common environment that application publishers could publish widgets to with one set of code, deployable across Google sites, MySpace, Hi5 and numerous other social networks.A directory of OpenSocial Apps launched today and the reality is even further from that goal than we expected. Out of 12,456 apps listed, only 83 are running on two or more “containers.” That’s 0.7% or one out of every 1500. Update: See this reply below from Google’s Kevin Marks. Marks says that cross-network presence was counted manually and is actually larger than it appears in the directory.last_img read more

Intel, Micron Unveil New 25nm NAND Flash Chip

first_imgThe new 25nm, 2bit/cell chip can hold 8GB of digital capacity, more  than 10 times the capacity of a standard compact dic [700MB]. The chip  measures a mere 167mm2 — small enough to fit through the hole in the  middle of a compact disc.Intel and Micron Technology reset the NAND flash capacity bar a  little higher and the chip size threshold a little lower Feb. 1 with the  introduction of the world’s first 25-nanometer solid-state processor.The new 25nm, 2bit/cell chip can hold 8GB of digital capacity, more  than 10 times the capacity of a standard compact disc [700MB]. The chip  measures a mere 167mm2 — small enough to fit through the hole in the  middle of a compact disc.”This is not only the smallest NAND lithography in the world, it is  the smallest silicon manufacturing technology in the world,” Intel  Marketing Director Troy Winslow told eWEEK on a conference call. Resource Library:”This is now the largest capacity multi-level cell device on the  market, at 8GB. We were the first on 34nm, now we’re the first on 25nm.”The smaller size allows multiple 8GB chips to be packaged more  economically to increase storage capacity. The new 25nm 8GB device  reduces chip count by 50 percent compared to previous process  generations, allowing for smaller, yet higher-density, designs and  greater cost efficiencies, Winslow said.For example, a 256GB solid-state drive now can be enabled with only  32 of these devices, versus 64 previously, Winslow said. A 32GB  smartphone needs only four, and a 16GB flash card requires only two, he  said.NAND flash memory, used in consumer devices such as smartphones,  digital cameras, and personal music and media players, stores data and  retains the information even when the power is turned off. NAND flash  also is gaining market share for use as components in high-performance  solid-state drives for servers and storage arrays.IM Flash Technologies, Intel and Micron’s NAND flash joint venture,  continues to cram more capacity onto tinier pieces of silicon about  every six to eight months. IMFT debuted its 34nm, 3Bit/cell NAND flash  chip last August.The 25nm/8GB device is sampling now and is expected to enter mass  production in Q2 2010, Winslow said.last_img read more

Salary Freezes at Intel; Employees Show Satisfaction with Compensation

first_imgThere pay is not competitive to others in the same industry. The pay is not even competitive between employees. I have the same qualifications and do the exact same job as some of my peers and I  am paid 7$ a hour less than my nearest peer. And it has nothing to do with my work ethic. I have never received anything less than a exceeds expectations on a performance review – Maintenance Tech (Hillsboro, OR) Here are some comments from employee reviews on how they view salaries at the company, both good and bad:Good pay, secure but challenging job, excellent products – Engineering Manager (Santa Clara, CA) Company RatingCompany Rating: Compensation & BenefitsCEO NameCEO Rating In an effort to stay afloat in today’s economy, many companies are now turning to salary freezes– either in lieu of or in addition to lay-offs. As a case in point, Intel announced salary freezes yesterday across the board, from the CEO on down. This follows the mass lay-offs of 6,000 people at Intel that occurred in January.While it seems as though Intel is trying to do right by their employees with this salary freeze, to avoid laying-off more folks, it will be interesting to see how employees respond. Take a look below at how current Intel employees evaluate the company, its compensation & benefits and the CEO. We observe that employees are relatively satisfied but how will this change as a result of this action? Intel3.53.6Paul S.
