Yesterday comScore released its September 2012 Video Metrix data which showed YouTube accounted for approximately 13.1 billion videos viewed out of the monthly total of 39.4 billion. 

At 33.2%, that's the lowest market share YouTube has had since Aug. '10.

As recently as July '12, YouTube had a 53.1% share (with 19.6 billion videos viewed), though as I pointed out previously, in August, its share dropped unexpectedly to 36.5%.

“In 10 years from now, people will be sharing 1,000 times as many things as they do today.”


People are generally laughing at Mark Zuckerberg for this quote, claiming that they couldn’t post 1,000x more per day updates or pictures of what they are eating. I submit that these people are stuck in the status quo and suffering from a lack of imagination around the awareness of devices that are here now or will be soon.
Google Glass is around the corner at approximately $1,500 and the Memoto’s life blogging camera for $249 is in kickstarter mode right now, already reaching their modest $50,000 goal and pushing towards $150K. This wearable device will take a 5 megapixel picture every 5 seconds tagged with Geolocation data.

Wearable cameras with a computer like Google Glass and more dedicated recording devices will grow in adoption and acceptance. In countries where automobile accident fraud is a problem or corrupt police try to shake you down for bribes, people have resorted to protecting themselves by installing their own hidden dash cams in their cars like cops in the U.S. are mandated to use.

The future is here, it’s just not evenly distributed.

Pandora updates for iPhone and Android apps.

Pandora updated its mobile app Monday.


The service added new features and completely overhauled its mobile music listening experience. “This is our biggest update to our iPhone and Android app since we launched on both platforms,” Asi Behar, Director of Product, User Experience at Pandora.

Pandora 4.0 is available now for iOS, and will be available for Android in the coming weeks. Behar says the Android version will arrive later, simply because Pandora wants to support every Android device, of which there are many.

Comcast Loses Subscribers: still feeling good about the future.

Last Friday morning Comcast reported strong Q3 '12 results, including its 8th straight quarter of lower year-over-year video subscriber losses. For Q3 '12, it lost 117K subscribers, vs. 165K in Q3 '11. 

This pattern stretches all the way back to Q4 '10, when Comcast lost 135K subscribers, vs. the 199K it lost in Q4 '09. 
Obviously no business likes to lose customers, but Comcast's (and all cable operators') reality is that with the incursion of telcos and satellite operators, some market fragmentation was inevitable.

We wanted to write something sad, unusual or even mournful. But instead, we put here his best, in our opinion, quote: "Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life".

RIP Steve Jobs.
