Junior Jack’s E-Samba is a nice dance-classic, but the groove, melody and lyrics were written a long time ago by Jadim De Castro as “Negra Sem Sandalia” and was featured in “Orfeu Negro“, a re-interpretation of the Greek legend of Orpheus and Eurydice by Marcel Camus, set in the context of Brazil carnival.
So web is going away, being replaced by apps? Forrester researched and does not agree;
Based on this data and other findings in the new report, Forrester advises businesses to design their apps only for their best and most loyal or frequent customers – because those are the only one who will bother to download, configure and use the application regularly. For instance, most retailers say their mobile web sales outweigh their app sales, the report says. Meanwhile, outside of these larger players, many customers will use mobile websites instead of a business’ native app.
My biased interpretation; unless you think can compete with Facebook for mobile users’ attention, mobile apps should maybe not be your most important investment. Maybe PPK conceeded victory too soon after all?
Now that I found Gilles Peterson’s WorldWide as a podcast on Radio Nova I’m once again enjoying the nuggets Gilles disperses to his worldwide audience. A couple of weeks ago he played “Sifflant Soufflant” by Casssandre (yes, 3 s’es, must be a Belgian thing), a Belgian jazz singer. While looking for that specific track on YouTube did not yield a result, I did find this live video which is part a series of performances recorded in beautiful places in Brussels;
So there you have it; 2 nuggets in one go. Enjoy your weekend!
