Yahoo Mail will be the , see the of Apple. that in May 2007, the Mail storage would be unlimited. So, is it for the iPhone or is it related to the free opening of Google Mail few weeks ago and the 2,8 GB of mail storage? My guess is that it is related to the Google fight, and Yahoo want to keep its domination in Webmail with this announcement.

iPhone Buzz Analysis

March 16, 2007 on 1:47 am | In iPhones | 3 Comments

It’s really interesting to measure the buzz around the iPhone announcement back in January. In fact I come back to that period because Google has unveiled some key figures around the early days of January:


As you can see, in early January the search of the term “iphone” starts to be a big phenomenon and it surpass the “ipod” term. But after that short period the buzz has stopped because the annoucement was for the iPhone fans to wait until June 2007. Finally, before January the search of the term “iphone” was closed to zero, but after the annoucement it becomes a popular term (about 17% of the search of “ipod” or “apple” term). I won’t be surprised to see “iphone” term in the top searches on popular search engines for 2007…

Anyway, some interesting graphs about the news buzz around the iPhone show that the news buzz is very closed to the trend of “iphone” search inside Google.



Finally, here is the Alexa stats (I know that Alexa is not really accurate) of a blog that has talked about the iPhone since a long time and who is in the top 10 list of website in Google when you search for “iphone”. As you can see the stats of this blog has the same look as the Google trends graph:


I will make a bet about the real launch of the iPhone in June, I think we will see a bigger buzz around this launch compared to the announcement of January, see you in June to measure it live…

iPhone + Jajah = Voice over IP?

March 4, 2007 on 10:09 pm | In Soft | No Comments

I’m a great fan of Jajah since October 2006, and I missed their blog… that they support the iPhone with their voice over IP functionnality on mobile phone. It’s really not a surprise… Why, because their technology is faily simple, it’s not a voice over IP when you need an internet connection, it’s a voice over IP using your existing phone. So when you use Jajah, your phone is ringing, and then you are connected with your correspondent. So it would be very easy to put it on the iPhone, with a web page you could enable Jajah, with a java application you could enable jajah, with an SMS (I think it could work) you could enable Jajah.

Finally, for the Apple world, so I think that we will find this applet on the iPhone as well…
