WhatsApp Messenger

Friday, February 28th, 2014

Open, Connected, Successful

WhatsApp Messenter

Striking it rich, dreaming of endless wealth, and finding the veritable “pot-of-gold” is part of the dream that most every entrepreneur who creates a software application in today’s business environment is shooting for.  Entrepreneurs hope that the business will be attractive and sell for a ridiculous sum of money based on the evaluation. WhatsApp Messenger definitely struck it rich this past week when Facebook bought the relatively new firm for $19 billion dollars; $4 billion in cash and another $15 billion in Facebook stock options.

 WhatsApp Messenger Does What?

WhatsApp Messenger, a five-year-old-company, is a (not so) proprietary, cross-platform instant messaging subscription service for smartphones. In addition to text messaging, users can send each other images, videos, and audio media messages as well as their location using integrated mapping features.  Competing with a number of Asian-based messaging services (including LINE, KakaoTalk, WeChat), WhatsApp has over 450 million monthly active users around the world, and has been adding a million users daily.   According to the Financial Times, WhatsApp “has done to SMS on mobile phones what Skype did to international calling on landlines.”

Essentially, this application allows users to communicate between all different types of mobile phones on all different carriers, world-wide. All you need to do is enter your phone number and WhatsApp “looks” through your contact list for other people who are using the app. Then you can message those users all you want without limits or overage charges. The technology behind WhatsApp is not very complicated or even that proprietary; the application allows for Multimedia messages (an image, audio or video) to be sent to an HTTP server and then a link to the content along with its Base64 encoded thumbnail is sent to the contact indicated.  In the simplest of terms, the user sending the information does so by sending the information to a web server via the mobile app. The designated user(s) receive the message in the form of a link on the same mobile app.  The app is free to download and has no ads, but it costs $1 per year after the first year.

WhatsApp allows for the circumvention of regular SMS messaging which basically exploits a “loophole” in mobile phone carrier pricing.  Additionally and maybe even as importantly, WhatsApp is a stark reminder of how much money phone carriers are losing out on as competitors let users text and chat at no charge.  According to research done by Ovum Ltd, free social-messaging applications like WhatsApp cost phone providers around the world $32.5 billion in texting fees in 2013.  That figure is projected to reach $54 billion by 2016.  As more customers switch to smartphones with increased and better Internet access, people are relying more on applications such as WhatsApp to communicate.  This is particularly true in areas outside the United States where carriers do not include unlimited texting into voice and data plans.  The rise of these Instant-Messaging applications has offered a cheaper source of communication, especially between users located in different countries, and they are undercutting the texts that, up to now, had been a key source of income.

Why the Acquisition?

According to Mark Zuckerburg, Facebook acquired WhatsApp because it wants to, “make the world more open and connected.” But, did Facebook really acquire WhatsApp because it wants to enter the mobile phone market? (This reason has been suggested with other acquisitions).  J.P. Morgan analyst, Doug Anmuth said, “Facebook’s acquisition of WhatsApp gives the company a strong position in mobile messaging, which we think is a crucial part of the company’s core mission of connecting the world.” Still, others speculate that Facebook wants to expand their global social media footprint.   As TechCrunch’s Josh Constine notes, “WhatsApp is huge in developing countries. Facebook could also use WhatsApp to help bring more people online through subsidized Internet, which Facebook already offers in some countries.  The acquisition is a shortcut to owning those growing markets.”  Others believe that Facebook wants to corner the photo sharing market.  With a user base of 450 million (compared to 1.23 billion for Facebook), WhatsApp users send 500 million pictures back and forth per day, about 150 million more than Facebook users generate.   Maybe Facebook is weeding out the competition as it has did with Instagram while blocking any future deals with other rivals like Twitter.

What is certain is WhatsApp will provide mountain loads of data about the things that people world-wide are truly interested in; information which, until the acquisition, Facebook didn’t have access to.  This new data can then be used for targeted advertising on other Facebook properties.

Facebook’s acquisition of WhatsApp is definitely setting precedence in the acquiring of newly formed user-based start-up companies.  Using an “evaluation” process of the firm (number of users that currently use the application, combined with the potential income that may be derived from advertising to the user base, or from an increase in the cost of the app, or the possibility of adding additional revenue based services) instead of structuring an offer based on actual revenue (WhatsApp declined to comment on their sales figures) has stirred up the financial world.

With a rapidly developing coding community taking off in South Carolina, this news is both thrilling and exciting!  I know I am encouraged!  I am a serial entrepreneur with two established businesses in the Upstate, and beginning a third – a new social application called SocialSprig.  It is my dream, and the dream of many entrepreneurs like me, who hope that our startups ultimately have a higher evaluation than XEROX, Marriott, and American Airlines.

China Domain Name Registration Scam

Tuesday, August 20th, 2013

China Domain Name Registration Scam, So I got an email today from a client asking if the email they received from a Chinese domain name company was legitimate or not. I went on the internet and did a little digging and I ran across this great blog post about getting emails just like this saying your domain is going to 
Hey! Got an Email from China Domain Name Registration Center, Asian Domain Registration Service In China, The Department Of Registration Service In China etc.?

China Domain Name Registration Scam - Christopher Hofman Laursen

China Domain Name Registration Scam - Scam Fighter

Christopher Hofman Laursen

The reason that you have landed here is surely due to an email in your inbox from an Asian named domain name registrar such as China Domain Name Registration CenterAsian Domain Registration Service In China or The Department Of Registration Service In China. In the email they probably request you to forward the email to your CEO with an urgent request to react quickly to a list of available domain names about to be registered by another company infringing your trademark rights. (This other “company” could also email you to tell that they plan to register the domains). In the following I will list the types of emails, discuss if this threat email should be taken seriously and which measures you should take. At the end we have collected a list of Chinese companies and individuals to be aware of plus examples of their emails. Please contact me if you have other examples, and do share the article so we can avoid more victims.

20.08.13: LAST NAME ADDED TO THE LIST: James ZhangChina Registry (Headquarters)

China Domain Name Registration Scam

Three types of emails

There are basically three types of unsolicited emails that you can receive:

1. A third party is interested in some available domain names (typically .hk, .cn, .tw), where you have a matching trademark. In only a few days the other party will register these domains, unless you react.

2. You receive a renewal reminder for a domain name which is very similar to the one you have registered. It could be that you have CoffeeMachineCompany.cn, and they want you to renew CoffeeMachineCompany.net.cn.

3. You receive a renewal reminder for a domain name that you have registered with another registrar. This should be reported to the right authorities. We got an example here from 18th May 2013 at the bottom, so you can see how they look.

Is this a real threat, where you have to react?

Our clients here at European Domain Centre are international companies with worldwide brands to defend, and a couple of times each month they forward these emails to me with the question: Are they fake? Are these domains really going to be registered by another company inside a few days? I went back to look at emails that clients had send over the years. One client got an email from The Department of Registration Service In China on 13.02.12 with a list of 10 domains. All of these domain names are still available one year after. Another client received an email from Asian Domain Registration in China on 17.10.11 with a list of four domains. The client ended up registering one of the domain names with us and the other three have been left unregistered for the last two years. The question in the title must be answered with a NO. This is a Chinese domain scam, where a third party company is used without its consent to pressure you to purchase some domain names via this Chinese registry. The domains will not be registered if you ignore them.
If you start a conversation with them, they will in each email tell you how urgent it is to register your domains. I have even been informed that they can call you at a certain point to put on more pressure. If you ask them for a reference or any information about the third party company interested in registering your domain names, they will not pass on any information, as it is “confidential”.

Are they real domain registrars?

Some yes, and others no. Going through the list of contacts I can see that many of the contacts only recently registered the domain name for their email, and no website exists. It is very likely that they will take your money and run. Some of the scammers regularly change their email address. E.g. Michael Hong has used eight different email addresses over the last months. They do this to avoid being blocked by spam filters.

What should you do when you receive an email from China Domain Name Registration Center or other similar named registrar?

As confirmed above your domain names will not be registered by another company, however I would still recommend you to do a couple of actions. First and foremost, there are companies taking the bait. Over the next two years hundreds of new gTLDs will be launched, so there will be even more confusion. If you have received an email like this, then please forward it to me at christopher@europeandomaincentre.com, and I will list it in the article to warn about these emails. I have already enclosed a sample of these below. You can also do like this guy and start a conversation with the scammer!

Secondly, it is surely not possible to stop these scam emails. You can search in Google where to report scams to your local authorities. Especially for fake renewal emails I would definetely take action, as this type of emails is far more scrupulous and easy to fall for, and they should be stopped immediately before others become victims. You can also share this article in your network so we can spread the message and ensure that the database is updated.

Thirdly, if you do plan to register domain names in those countries, then I would recommend that you do not wait. Contact your current domain registrar (Not China Domain Name Registration Center!). If you decide to use us at European Domain Centre, you will only have to deal with one contact for all your domain names, even if you have registered domains in countries all over the world.


When you receive an email from China Domain Name Registration Center or a similar company about domains which are about to be registered, then it is most likely a false warning, and you should ignore it. You can send it to me, as we can then update the article to warn about new emails. Secondly, if you do think that some of these domain names could come in handy in the near future, then do go ahead and register them. I recommend as well that you read the article The Top 5 Domain Name Scams in 2012.

Microsoft Confirms WebGL Support For Internet Explorer 11

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

Microsoft Confirms WebGL Support For Internet Explorer 11Our own Frederic Lardinois noted that the new version of Internet Explorer wasn’t a major revamp, but it does play home to some very compelling changes under the hood.

Take WebGL for instance — nearly all of Microsoft’s major browser rivals have already jumped on that bandwagon, and now Antoine Leblond confirmed at Microsoft’s annual BUILD conference in San Francisco that Internet Explorer 11 (which should officially debut alongside Windows 8.1 later this year) will indeed support WebGL too.

Granted, this tidbit won’t come as much of a shock to those paying very close attention — an early version of Internet Explorer 11 spotted in a leaked Windows Blue build this past March late last month basically confirmed as much, Microsoft posted a kooky Vine (seriously, with browser puppets and everything) that strongly hinted that WebGL support was in the works. All that said, this is a major win for proponents of the cross-platform graphics acceleration API, especially considering how dicey the prospect of universal adoption looked for a while. As one of the last major WebGL holdouts, Microsoft raised its share of concerns with WebGL — consider this pointed critique of WebGL’s security shortcomings from a few years back.

Leblond also took a few moments to talk up the implementation of MPEG Dash –a streaming video standard that has been slowly picking up steam among industry players — in IE11. It’s slowly been picking up steam among industry players, though Microsoft’s interest in it hasn’t exactly been a secret. After becoming a standard in 2011, Adobe adopted MPEG Dash in 2012 and Microsoft committed to it just a few months later.

The 10 commandments of blogging

Friday, January 18th, 2013
It’s a new year. You have another year to achieve your business and blogging goals. There are many things you will need to do this year, but there are a few things you must do to get the most out of your blog. Let’s call them commandments.

1. Thou shalt write every day.

Words are your hammer and nails. Know how to use them, and they will build your blog and business. The only way to master writing is to write a lot, so set aside time every day to write a few paragraphs. Over time you’ll find your style and voice.

2. Thou shalt publish once a week.

I’ve neglected this commandment before and suffered. A blog is a living organism, and you must feed it with new content. A blog without fresh content will be ignored by readers and Google, drying up your traffic, leads and sales. Your traffic will increase as you post more frequently.

Be careful to balance frequency with quality. No one will return to a blog with shoddy content.

3. Thou shalt build an email list.

You must identify readers who want a deeper relationship with your content. These readers will become sharers, leads and sales. Even if you don’t plan to sell anything to them, collect their email addresses. Your email list is your first and most important business asset.

4. Thou shalt track everything.

Install Google Analytics on your blog. Get comfortable with the reports and tools. Understand who sends you traffic and which posts attract the most subscribers, leads and sales. Without this data you’ll take unnecessary risks, bet on the wrong content, and overlook valuable opportunities.

Tip: Google Analyticator is a WordPress plugin that makes it very easy to install Google Analytics.

5. Thou shalt sell something.

This is simple. You can’t earn an income from your blog if you have an empty cupboard. If you sell a product, find ways to pre-sell it with helpful posts. If you offer a service or advice, use your blog to explain your approach and demonstrate your techniques. You are not in business until you have a product and customers. Work on your product now.

6. Thou shalt use social media wisely.

I’ve watched many blogs suffer and die because their owners spent more time tweeting than creating content, building lists, and selling products. Social media is the new town square; it’s where you go to have meaningful conversations with like-minded people. But conversations aren’t sales. Use your time wisely.

7. Thou shalt look great.

Your blog has to look great. There are thousands of great-looking professional themes out there that will give your blog an immediate makeover. You can buy most of the best themes for less than $100. Don’t expect your visitors to invest in your blog if you won’t.

8. Thou shalt ask for action.

It’s hard to ask your readers to take action, but you must do it. You won’t get subscribers, comments, retweets or clients until you learn how to ask. The secret to asking for action is to share/give valuable information first.

9. Thou shalt love SEO.

Google will likely be your most reliable long-term traffic source. It will index every post you publish, and potentially lead more readers to your blog. Search engine optimization (SEO) is an evolving collection of tactics to get top rankings in Google’s search results. While SEO can be confusing at first, it can bring you tons of targeted visitors. Make learning SEO a goal and watch it pay dividends in 2013. This post will get you started.

10. Thou shalt remember your blog is only a marketing tool.

Some believe that social media and blogging are magical. Sprinkle a little blogging dust and you don’t have to build a great product, market it, or hustle for customers. That’s not true.

Your blog is a powerful tool, but just a tool. Learn how to use it to achieve your overall business goals.

WordPress Web Site – Iced for You

Friday, January 11th, 2013

Iced for You a new WordPress web site that we developed. What is Iced for You? Well, it provides customers high quality gourmet cupcake products made with love and the best ingredients, with customization options only limited by the imagination.

The Mission
Design a WordPress CMS site for Iced for You. Make the site a custom one-of-a-kind WordPress CMS design that complemented the logo, colors, and captured the creations of Iced for You. Make sure that the site could be maintained by the owner and proprietor Courtney Tessler.

The Goal
Our goal was to develop a web site that was not only easily maintainable by the owner and staff. Another goal of Mojoe.net‘s was to make sure that the design of the site represented the gourmet cake creations so the visiting customers would leave the site wanting a delicious tasting cupcake.  This being a WordPress web site we not only had to set this site up but configure it as well.

The Work and Why We’re Proud of It
We are extremely proud of this web site and hungry after looking at it. We wanted a site that really showed off the cupcakes and with the photography that we provided and our design. We believe that we have accomplished the main goal of our customer to make her one-of-a-kind creations stand out on the site. The site has been being maintained by Courtney and she rarely if ever calls upon us to help her with the site.

SOPA blackout: Bill lose three co-sponsors amid protest

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

Sen. Marco Rubio

Three co-sponsors of the SOPA and PIPA antipiracy bills have publicly withdrawn their support as Wikipedia and thousands of other websites blacked out their pages Wednesday to protest the legislation.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) withdrew as a co-sponsor of the Protect IP Act in the Senate, while Reps. Lee Terry (R-Neb.) and Ben Quayle (R-Ariz.) said they were pulling their names from the companion House bill, the Stop Online Piracy Act. Opponents of the legislation, led by large Internet companies, say its broad definitions could lead to censorship of online content and force some websites to shut down.

In a posting on his Facebook page, Rubio noted that after the Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously passed its bill last year, he has “heard legitimate concerns about the impact the bill could have on access to the Internet and about a potentially unreasonable expansion of the federal government’s power to impact the Internet.”

PHOTOS: Sites on strike

“Congress should listen and avoid rushing through a bill that could have many unintended consequences,” Rubio said in announcing he was withdrawing his support. While he’s committed to stopping online piracy, Rubio called for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) to back off plans to hold a key procedural vote on the bill on Tuesday.

Rubio’s withdrawal will reduce the number of co-sponsors to 39. Last week, two other co-sponsors, Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) and Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), joined four other Senate Republicans in a letter to Reid also urging him delay the vote. But Grassley and Hatch have not withdrawn their support.

Terry and Quayle were among the 31 sponsors of the House legislation before they withdrew their support Tuesday.

Quayle still strongly supports the goal of the House bill to crack down on foreign websites that traffic in pirated movies, music, medicine and other goods.

“The bill could have some unintended consequences that need to be addressed,” said Quayle spokesman Zach Howell. “Basically it needs more work before he can support it.”

Terry said that he also had problems with the House bill in its current form and would no longer support it.

Wikipedia, Reddit and about 10,000 other websites blacked out their pages Wednesday with messages warning of the dangers of the legislation and urging people to contact their congressional representatives. Howell said Quayle’s office had not seen a major increase in calls or emails Wednesday, but that the piracy bills have been the main issue in recent weeks for people contacting the office.

There has been a “manageable increase” in visits to House member websites Wednesday, said Dan Weiser, a spokesman for the House office of the chief administrative officer.

“It’s possible some users will see a short delay or slow loading of a member’s web page,” he said.
