Story No. 1 – the only story!
We dive into the report that the mobile industry is now generating $1.6 trillion in revenue and accounts for nearly 2% of the global GDP. This isn’t a surprise to us and we anticipate it to grow even more but even though we are moving at an incredible clip, this industry is only just begun. Jeff and I dive into a few of the numbers behind this report and offer some ideas about where a few segments of the industry are going.

The full report can be found here.

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