  1. DigaForce does social media with military precision

    Military intelligence is a sophisticated machine. In 2012, the Department of Defense spent $21.5 billion on an intelligence budget. And while that network of intelligence is no doubt sprawling and layered, it affects every individual soldier and how he or she carries out a mission.

  3. Towards fewer apps: The rise of the uber-app

    Don’t be fooled by Facebook’s ever-expanding empire of mobile apps. Today’s release of Snapchat-ripoff Poke is not only retrograde in the way it revives a dying remnant of the early Facebook vernacular, or in that it harks back to good old days of cloning. It also intensifies app-clutter on our smartphones at a time when real mobile innovation is pushing in the other direction.

  4. Finally, a Motorola-built phone to get excited about

    Looks like Motorola is being put to work after all. Months after Google’s John Lagerling told the New York Times that the Motorola acquisition was mainly about the company’s patent portfolio, the Wall Street Journal reports that the company is working on the mysteriously-monikered “X Phone.”

  5. Whawhee enters beta to rejuvenate online classifieds

    If you wanted to find a date, a home entertainment center, or a job, where would you go? Pre-Internet the answer would have been the classifieds section of the local newspaper, a one-stop shop for anything and everything available in the neighborhood. This function has largely been handed off to Craigslist, a sprawling collection of goods and services (perhaps of dubious legality) that covers most regions in the United States.

  6. Back from the dead: Workfu gets acquired

    Usually it works the other way around -- a startup gets acquired by a strategic buyer and then they shut it down. Workfu did things slightly backwards.

  7. Let’s admit it… Steve Jobs was lucky

    Apple isn’t doing very well at the moment. I know this, because I am a small sheep in the herd of AAPL shareholders who have watched the company lose substantial value over the last few months.

  8. Mixpanel says focus on one key metric -- writers, that means you, too

    Every good company has a different set of core values. And every good business model has a way to see if they are meeting those goals. For YouTube, it might be aggressively tracking video views. For Dropbox, number of files synced. For Twitter, Tweets, naturally.
