CEO Ambarish Mitra: independent Blippar may IPO - Business Insider
youtu.be/epMs3X8U9Ko?t=13m55s 'want's to take it all the way ... to IPO.' - Q: Is Virtual Search and Augmented Reality a feature on an existing (Search) Platform (with existing data and personal context - ie your past search history and relations (FB)) in the next 5 years or a public company? Could the extra friction of an app to launch, with the name ?blippar? be a friction point for traction!? - VS - native on iOS, Android camera app that gets into augmented reality mode when it sees a specific QR code. Time will tell.

Apple is launching search engine to destroy Google — and you’re already using it | Calacanis.com
“Paid Inclusion” is basically the ads that consumers think are content, but are really ads. You can see this on your desktop by doing a search for “used iPhone.” The majority of the screen real estate is now ads! In the example above 11 of the 12 links are advertisements! [...] I could see Apple knocking 10 points off Google’s search business here in the USA in the next couple of years by simply making search an advertising-free piece of Apple’s OPERATING SYSTEM! [...] Apple is leapfrogging Google by making search something that is built into the core of your mobile phone and desktop. [ user experience, frictionless ] [...] Tim Cook is painting Google, accurately, as the evil successor to Microsoft, and Google’s management team is reinforcing this by closing ranks and destroying their partners. [ If its free to use, ... you are paying with your usage, with your data, your identity, ... ]
