SiteVision News & Tips: iOS Gains Market Share, Internet Taxes Soon?

[image source_type=”attachment_id” source_value=”4923″ align=”left” size=”Small 150 width”]

iOS Now Gets 58% Share of the Mobile Enterprise Market

Although Apple’s operating system has increased share, according to Citrix (who aggregated data from its customers), there are some caveats.  Where business is communicating with consumers directly, such as in retail, IOS has maintained, even increased, its lead overall.  On the other hand, where there are mobile workforces in the field such as in transportation and utilities, Android is the preferred OS.  Plus, Android is the fastest growing platform in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.  Windows mobile OS is sadly insignificant except in Europe, Middle East and Africa, where it shows a 21% market share.  You can read more of this interesting report here with at-a-glance graphic comparisons of various OS market attributes.

Will Apple Up Its Game with Apple iPhone 5S (uh, 6)?

With some pretty slick handsets already out there by Samsung, Sony, HTC and Google, will Apple reevaluate its game plan?  Rumors abound.  Many suggest we’ll see an iPhone 5s in the June, July time frame, and an iPhone6 later on.  Will we see a faster processor, better camera and new software (perhaps the iOS7 update)?  Is a fingerprint reader in the mix, or NFC? Will we see a plethora of color options?  A special “Home” button?   Personally, and as a new Nexus4  owner, I’m thinking Apple may be getting a little long in the tooth, especially at Apple price points.  So will they concentrate on a lower cost unit to appeal to both the Euro, Asia markets?  Or will they tempt us with a truly noteworthy model that both surprises and pleases?

Buh-Bye Google Reader!

Uh-Oh.  In a roar heard round the world, RSS Google Reader users begged, pleaded with and cursed those at Google who decided to kill it.  One publication showed the familiar RSS button on the face of a tombstone.  And dead it is, apparently, as of July 1st.  So what’s next?  One app, Feedly, apparently picked up some 500,000 converts practically overnight, so to speak.  So if you like to get tailored news feeds whether for technology, personal or enterprise purposes, it’s time to look elsewhere. Cnet has some suggestions, as does The Verge and Forbes – all good starting points to strike out on your own.

Congress Considering Legislation To Force Sales Tax Payment Online

Brick and Mortar retailers like Walmart, Best Buy and others want it to level the playing field.  Online sellers like eBay, and online catalog companies don’t.  In the recent non-binding  budget vote, the Senate approved a proposal to authorize states to collect sales tax on Internet and catalog transactions between their residents and out-of-state retailers. Presently, state tax authority over retail transactions extends only to retailers with a physical presence in the jurisdiction.  Sure to be hugely controversial,  here are a few articles worth reviewing whether you have a dog in the fight, just regularly purchase online, or are a smaller online seller.  The Tax Foundation  Business Week TechCrunch
