Story No. 1
If you ran the company…What would you do? We take a look at some of the companies we’d like to run who aren’t using mobile as a part of their business model or are venturing into this space with less than stellar results. We dive in with Zynga, LinkedIn, Hulu and MLB Media Group and talk turkey about how they are missing the boat with their mobile efforts.

Story No. 2
So who’s next? What business models do we like out there that will be one that has staying power? We examine one sector today – the surplus time/stuff space – with companies like AirBnB, and Gigwalk. Examining what drives these companies may drive the next generation of mobile startup.

All this and much much more – with a few detours of course.
