  • Outside of search, the closest tie between Apple and Google so far was the deep integration of Google Maps in Apple’s products. That radically changed today, though it’s worth noting that the announcement was one of Apple’s  worst kept secrets . Now, Apple will now offer  its own mapping service  on iOS, opening up a new front in its competition with Google. The new maps will offer virtually all of the features iOS users have come to expect from the Google Maps-based default app (with one exception) and a slew of new features like spoken turn-by-turn directions and 3D maps for virtual flyovers. Google did its best  to preempt Apple’s announcement today  by scheduling a Google Maps-focused press conference last week. There, the company announced its stunning new 3D maps for Android, but failed to announce when it would actually launch this new feature. It’s now more obvious than ever that this was simply a defensive move on Google’s part, as the company was surely aware that it was going to soon lose its premier position on Apple’s mobile operating system. Apple’s 3D maps look just as gorgeous as Google’s (and Scott Forestall even used the same kind of San Francisco flyover to demonstrate it). Chances are, Apple is using the same kind of technology to create these 3D maps with airplanes that capture aerial imagery and smart algorithms that then turn these images into 3D maps. As usual, though, Apple is keeping this information to itself. Goodbye Street View For the most part, Apple is replicating and expanding on existing features from the currently Google Maps version. There are now built-in Yelp reviews, turn-by-turn directions (I’ll get back to that in a bit) and the same kind of instant traffic updates we’ve become accustomed to from Google. The only feature that’s gone missing – and Apple obviously didn’t talk about this today – is  Street View , Google’s street-level imagery. Given the time and effort it would have taken Apple to re-create this service, it’s not much of a surprise that this feature is gone now, but chances are many users will miss it once they update to iOS 6. Transit directions – another useful Google Maps feature – is thankfully coming back in the form of Apple’s own version of this service. ( Update : Apple will actually “integrate” transit apps from third-party developers. It doesn’t look like the app itself will feature transit directions.) Goodbye Stand-Alone Turn-By-TurnNavigation Apps It’s not just Google Maps facing some fresh competition now, though. Stand-alone turn-by-turn navigation apps from incumbents like  TomTom  and startups like  Waze  will likely become a niche product on iOS soon as well (though, it turns out, TomTom is providing maps data to Apple ). Until now, Google was a step ahead of Apple here, thanks to its built-in navigation app, but Apple is now pulling even (and maybe even a bit ahead). The new iOS 6 Maps app will feature spoken turn-by-turn directions, your ETA will be based on real-time traffic information and when there is an accident or a traffic jam along your route, you will get the option to switch to a faster route instead. Another new feature on iOS – and one that Android users have also had in similar form for a while already – is the ability to use voice commands. Thanks to integration with Siri, though, chances are that Apple’s voice recognition system will be more flexible, but until we get our hands on this thing, that still remains to be seen. There is no indication that Apple plans to bring any of these features to the web, so Google doesn’t have much to fear here (and neither has  Bing ). On the mobile side, though, this new competition is clearly driving everybody involved in mapping to push things forward and innovate quickly.
  • Here Come the RIM-Samsung Rumors Again AUGUST 8, 2012 AT 3:44 AM PT in Share Share Print Research In Motion’s best hope for recovery isn’t BlackBerry 10. It’s Samsung. That’s the word from Jefferies analyst Peter Misek, who believes that RIM’s strategic review will culminate in a decision to license its BB10 operating system, and that Samsung is the company most likely to be interested in licensing it. “ Given recent management comments in the press, it now appears that RIM is realizing what Wall Street has been saying for some time: they are a subscale manufacturer and desperately need a partner,” Misek wrote in a note to clients. “We believe RIM is attempting to revive discussions with Samsung regarding a BB10 licensing deal.” That’s a bit of a leap, but not an entirely unreasonable one. Just last week, RIM CEO Thorsten Heins acknowledged that licensing BB10 was an option under serious consideration at the company. “ We don’t have the economy of scale to compete against the guys who crank out 60 handsets a year,”  Heins said . “To deliver BB10, we may need to look at licensing it to someone who can do this at a way better cost proposition than [we] can do it.” But is that “someone” to which Heins refers most likely to be Samsung? Misek certainly thinks so —  and this isn’t the first time he’s floated the theory . It’s his view that Samsung, through an acquisition of RIM, would gain access to the company’s vast subscriber base and a means of tempering its dependence on Google’s Android OS. “ We believe Samsung is considering ramping up its internal OS [operating system] development efforts, licensing BB10, or buying RIM,” he wrote. “We think any acquisition is unlikely until after BB10 launches.” Samsung hasn’t yet responded to a request for comment, but back in January, it dispatched similar rumors with  a terse statement to Reuters : “We haven’t considered acquiring the firm and are not interested in (buying RIM).”
  • Why Facebook Is Paying $1 Billion For Instagram Guest Writer on April 10, 2012 8:22 PM Instagram’s traffic has steadily risen over the last six months, reaching 3.8 million last week, up from 68,800 visits for the week ending October 22, 2012. That kind of momentum explains why Facebook paid $1 billion for the photo sharing network with over 30 million users. While the majority of activity takes place within the Instagram application, the website provides links to the Apple App Store and Google Play as well as some account management tools. The audience for Instagram is relatively young: over half of the visitors to the Instagram website are under the age of 35. This is an interesting contrast to the visitors of Facebook’s website, which reflects a more mainstream audience with a higher share of older users. These differences can certainly offer opportunities to promote and grow usage of each of the networks across age groups.       Many users of Instagram share their photos across a number of social networks since within the Instagram application, you can link to your share photos with Twitte r, Facebook, Flickr , Tumblr , Posterous (recently acquired by Twitter) and Foursquare accounts. As a result of this integration and heavy use of social networks in general, social networks refer the majority of traffic to the Instagram website. Last week, new visitors represented one in four of the traffic going to the photo sharing site from social networks, most likely because they saw photos within the feeds of their friends. Last week, there was considerable excitement around the launch of Instagram app for Android phones , which became available on Google’s recently relaunched digital media store, Google Play. The app reached over one million downloads on the first day of availability. Visits to the Instagram website increased 59 percent over the previous week and Google Play ranked sixth among the downstream websites visited immediately after the Instagram website. Please note this data does not include mobile traffic. Readers, do you use Instagram yet? Guest writer Heather Dougherty is director of research at Experian Hitwise .
