As you might know the first day at 2013 Internet & Mobile World (2013IMWorld), the biggest “business to business” event dedicated to digital, mobile and software solutions in Romania, held at Romexpo ended. What you do not know, if you have not attended on it, is that it was successful.
We had the opportunity to talk to successful people, to see the latest offers for all companies in the field, to see the latest technology and yes … to test Google’s famous Glass.
Oh, we’ve waited too long to test Google Glass, but was worth it? Short answer, yes. Not only we’ve seen Google Glass, we also test it. We can tell for sure that Google Glass offer real sensation; they are really light, strong and can do all that’s advertised.
Google Glass testing at IM World 2013 – we loved it
Did you know that Google Glass can only be used for 40 minutes (battery life) and to charge them takes about 20 minutes? They do have a mobile charging unit as you see in the photo above. Although the Google team must improve Google Glass, it won’t be long until we will test a better version of Google Glass.
Also at 2013 IMWorld we met great people with great businesses and one such person was the founder of PadiTrack , a Conversion Funnel Tracking application. PadiTrack is integrated with Google Analytics data, ready to build up the funnels and can process funnel data retroactively, for as long as you had Google Analytics installed. We will test the application, because we’ve enjoyed their presentation.
We had a lot of fun at 2013 IMWorld, testing the Entersoft Romania micro scooters and we appreciated the creativity of Marketizator‘s stand.
We also participated in Developers Arena: Web Development in the Modern Age conference, and Digital performance – the ultimate focus conference.

Analysts are already predicting Google’s demise as the world’s lead Internet search engine after it suffered a catastrophic nose-dive in its market value.
“[Google] could disappear in five to eight years and disappear in the sense that Yahoo used to be the king of search,” said Eric Jackson, the founder and managing member of Ironfire Capital, a technology-focused hedge fund.
“Now, for all intents and purposes, Yahoo has disappeared,” he said on CNBC Friday.
Google’s stock value plunged a hair-raising 10% this week – wiping out more than $24 billion from the company’s value – after its third-quarter earnings report, which revealed a 20 percent drop in profits over last year, was accidentally released three hours earlier than planned on Thursday.
The profit losses were driven by a decline in advertising revenue, according to its earnings report. The amount that advertisers paid Google on a click-per-click basis fell 15%.
Advertising revenues are falling – and will continue to fall – for Internet companies because consumers are increasingly migrating to mobile applications and advertisers aren’t willing to pay as much for a mobile ad.
“I keep saying Facebook isn’t the only one that has a mobile issue – Google does, too,” Colin Gillis, an analyst for Boston Consulting Group, told CNBC.com.
“If you are an investor in Facebook, mobile is priced into earnings. I don’t think mobile in Google is priced in.”
Google’s stock value plunged a hair-raising 10 percent this week
Advertisers aren’t willing to pay as much for mobile advertising because the platform is not as effective as advertising on a desktop or laptop computer, analysts said.
Other companies, such as Apple, will get ahead of Google in attracting advertisers to their mobile applications and Google’s dominance will eventually start to shrink, Eric Jackson predicted.
“I think that there is a big opportunity right now for someone to step forward and assert themselves for a new way of getting people information for doing search in a mobile world,” Eric Jackson said.
“I don’t think typing in a blue box is the ideal format for a mobile world. And I think the best opportunity out there to displace Google in this area is probably Apple’s Siri.”
For now however, despite its drop in earnings, Google remains dominant in online advertising with a 74.5% share of the U.S. search ad market, according to data from eMarketer.
Shares in Apple, the only technology company larger than Google in market value, fell by around 2.8% during trading on Friday.
Facebook, which is another technology stock heavily dependent on advertising for its revenues, saw its shares fall by 0.5% during trading.
The Dow Jones index of trading on Wall Street dipped more than 200 points.
Google blamed its printers for releasing the results by accident. Speculation was mounting on Friday night that Google could make a legal claim against R.R. Donnelley, the company it pays to put out its financial results.
