If the rumors circling next week’s iPhone 6 launch are correct, Apple’s newest and long-awaited device won’t just offer a substantially bigger screen, slimmer profile, faster processor and tougher glass, but for the first time, it will also include a near-field communication (NFC) chip that can transmit payment information. NFC technology allows you to use your device to pay for goods – similar to a contactless payment card – and while this technology is already available in other smartphones, the idea of using a mobile wallet hasn’t taken off in developed markets. Until now. Mobile wallets have suffered somewhat from […] More >>
“As an industry, we have a moral responsibility to ensure that people know what happens to their data,” said Timotheus Höttges, the new Deutsche Telekom CEO. Speaking on the second morning of Mobile World Congress 2014 here in Barcelona, Höttges pointed out that most customers failed to understand that “if an app is free, then you are not the customer, you are the product,” explaining that once the app has been downloaded, the app makers then sell on the customer’s personal data they gained during the download to advertisers or use this data themselves to sell other products.

Hands up if you’re a regular shopper at a particular supermarket chain. If so, I’m guessing that you probably have a loyalty card. And if you’re a Portuguese shopper, that probability is very high indeed, because according to Frederico Santos, a director at Sonae Retail, more than 90% of its business is associated with its Continente loyalty card. With three million cards for 10 million people, Sonae Retail has access to a huge amount of personal data that they can leverage in order to generate customer-specific offers that fit their customers’ profiles and their needs. Think “Big Data” and we […] More >>
BLOGGER: NAOMI WEISER A friend of mine (let’s call her “Julia Roberts”) was horrified this week when, after carrying out a Google search, it brought up her search results together with the question: “Are you Julia Roberts?” Her identity wasn’t something she was aware she’d ever revealed to Google, but her enthusiastic patronage of social media sites had unfortunately apparently connected too many dots together. This instantly reminded me of a conversation I had with someone years ago who refused to even have a credit card. “It will reveal too much information about me” he explained. “I want to keep […] More >>
BLOGGER: NAOMI WEISER When I joined Facebook, I remember the legal notice at the time said something to the effect that anything you post on Facebook was their property to do with as they pleased. Slightly worrying, but I kept it in mind when adding information, making sure it wasn’t too personal. I also checked the privacy settings and rather smugly thought everything was somewhat under control. That was until a hiccup by Facebook admin last year meant I couldn’t access my Facebook profile for weeks. I couldn’t even remove my profile to let my friends know that I was […] More >>
