NHS invest in new electronic GP consultations as patients will be diagnosed using EMAILS | UK | News | Express.co.uk
Separate data from NHS researchers shows the new online consultation service is disproportionately used by patients with issues that are more often seen as embarrassing, such as sexual or mental health problems and contraception in what experts say is an example of “digital disinhibition”.

Looking for “the next Facebook”? It’s actually one of Zuckerberg’s own properties: Messenger | PandoDaily
Skype gets eaten by Networks greater than it ever could be, as feature for said Network(apps). Skype is also more than 10 years old. It's hard to disrupt yourself at that size, lots missed the mobile, underestimated the seismic shift of discretionary time spend on now on smart phone vs laptop/pc. Smartphone is less friction. Having an existing network of certain relations is less friction (Google Hangouts vs Citrix Go to Meeting (creating an account is friction, should partner up with Linkedin stupid)). Starting out as Desktop app and doing it really well there, and then just copying it to the smart phone? The smart phone is not a mini-pc/laptop! It's a much closer tight and emotional relationship (studies have showed).

NYT - EU and Google
“With more than a decade of hindsight, the theories supporting the case against Microsoft have all but fallen apart, and the pursuit of the company that makes Windows may suggest a reason for skepticism about this fight against Google: The tech marketplace is fluid and unpredictable. The giants that look most unbeatable today could falter in ways that may once have seemed unthinkable — and without a lot of help from the government.” [...] Google makes most of its money from search ads, but the market for such direct advertising may be tapped out. The next great wave of digital advertising — a market far bigger than search spots — will come from ad budgets now reserved for TV commercials, and many observers bet that Facebook, not Google, is in the best position to get that business. &! bit.ly/1aCgTK7 &!

Thus customers pay only for data plan or flat-rate data plan. Carriers will eventually offer such plans, maybe even target them early at teems/parents with teens (family plans).

The week ahead: Avoiding the issue - YouTube
Min 2:30. Nadella more practical (and more charging ahead, opportune, taking chances) than dogmatic - as Balmer was/is. Nadella breaking with the past of Microsoft business behaviour, which was dogmatic. Microsoft too slow to be first to the market, bc too big. Thus got to use its size and leverage and existing customer base ... to catch-up, to take at least some market share and growth of market X.

Don’t Expect Facebook’s WhatsApp to Make Any Real Money for Years | Re/code
“By being a part of Facebook, it makes it so that [WhatsApp] can focus for the next five years or so purely on connecting more people,” Zuckerberg said. Were Facebook not to have acquired WhatsApp, he continued, the pressure would have increased on WhatsApp CEO Jan Koum to eventually “focus more on revenue models” and monetization over the near term, rather than on the company’s continued growth. [...] “I think by itself, WhatsApp is worth more than $19 billion. It’s hard to make that case today because they have so little revenue, but look at the messaging apps already out there,” Zuckerberg said, pointing to existing competitors like KakaoTalk, WeChat and Line, which are already monetizing (in some cases, quite successfully). [...] 70 percent of those returning to the app on a daily basis. Those levels of engagement are unheard of in Internet circles, and it’s why Zuckerberg and company were so taken by the fast-growing mobile app.

Where Did VCs Go Wrong In Online Video?
But the entrepreneurs who have made fortunes in media tend to reinvest in their own empires rather than dole out the money to potential startup competitors. Media moguls like Rupert Murdoch, William Randolph Hearst, Sumner Redstone, SI Newhouse and the like who never sold out retained their earnings and built empires. Once they became the Establishment, it made little sense for them to finance the disruption.

The Secret Diary of Steve Jobs: Why the Borg's copycat business model no longer works
They got so big so quickly that there was no way for the Borg to claw them back. Same for all these other Web businesses. Amazon, Ebay, Skype, Facebook, Twitter. They came out of nowhere, and what they were doing was free, so the Borg couldn't just do a crappy knockoff and sell it for less. They were up against free -- the Web companies were using their own strategy against them.
