Weekend Reading

This week’s links:

  • Mobile Internet Report: from Morgan Stanley. “The mobile Internet is ramping faster than desktop Internet did, and we believe more users may connect to the Internet via mobile devices than desktop PCs within 5 years.”
  • What to expect in Mobile in 2010: by Jake Seid of Lightspeed Venture Partners. “We’re still a long way off from mobile-app developers being able to create true direct-to-consumer offerings like their cousins in the web world.”
  • The Death of the PC: from Forbes. “Among corporate customers, the future is beginning to look very uncertain.”
  • Telecom 2020 Vision: from Telecom Asia. “They point to M2M, LTE, all-fiber nets, smart enablers, the irrelevance of current mobile metrics, the end of pay-TV and an exploding universe of mobile apps, to name a few.”
  • The Great Abdication: Consumer Internet, Venture Capital, and Angels: by Bill Burnham. “Anyone who has recently spent anytime fundraising for a consumer internet start-up in Silicon Valley quickly comes to an inescapable conclusion: there is effectively no Venture Capital available to Consumer Internet startups.”
