Two companies, SuperCell & King, now each have 3 of the Top 10 Grossing US iPhone apps. Impressive in such a hit driven, competitive market.
I'm surprised there doesn't seem to be a way to use Google's awesome "search by image" feature on mobile. Only works on desktop.

Re: Mobile Shopping - http://www.avc.com/a_vc...
"I almost always prefer the simplicity of browsing on mobile over desktop in cases where companies have taken the time to craft a good mobile app or site - not just shopping. The smaller screen forces companies to focus on the essentials and the images are still large enough for me to make a decent purchase decision. However, many smaller, specialty stores still haven't built mobile-friendly sites, so it's somewhat hit or miss." - Joe Lazarus

"Distimo allows you to download top free, grossing & paid charts as CSV... both current and historical data. I've done a ton of analysis like this using that and other data sources. Still messy the clean it all up in Excel, but faster than manually pulling the data." - Joe Lazarus

"I'm curious to see if Chromecast can stream video and other large files to the TV without buffering issues. We use Airplay and Apple TV every day at work to mirror mobile devices & laptops to conference room TVs, but when I try to watch a video at home streamed from my iPhone or iPad to Apple TV, it skips and cuts out so much that it's unusable." - Joe Lazarus

"I snagged laz.me for ten bucks the day .me domains opened up. Sadly, .me is no .com, so laz.me is probably not valuable to other people, but it's certainly worth the $10 to .me Why can't you repeat letters? 26^3 was correct assuming you only use letters, not numbers or symbols. No?" - Joe Lazarus

Re: Feature Friday: Pick A Song - http://www.avc.com/a_vc...
"I like the idea of Piki, but I haven't yet figured out how to best use it. Admittedly, I haven't spent a lot of time in the app, but I think they could do a bit more to explain their features. I don't really understand how to influence the music the app recommends for me. Is it based on people I follow, in which case I'm likely to only follow people with similar tastes in music vs all my real world friends. Do my picks influence the music I'm suggested or is my stream of music based more on the artists I plug into the "tune radio" screen a la Pandora? Do "reactions" influence the music I hear or is that just feedback for the person who picked the track?" - Joe Lazarus

"I agree that Facebook isn't the company I'd look to for re-aggregation. I imagine there will be a few interesting startups in the Android home "launcher" category that attract a large audience with a less biased solution than Facebook's. The "Go Launcher EX" already has 50-100 million installs, for example... https://play.google.com/store/... I could also see a bunch of niche launchers that target specific customer segments. For example, gamers might want a launcher with basic navigation options (phone, email, texting, etc) combined with game specific features (what games my friends are playing, leaderboards, etc). News junkies might want a launcher that highlights breaking news. It's possible that one company will dominate the launcher opportunity, assuming custom launchers take off. It's also possible that it will be a fragmented market, much like the mobile app space overall." - Joe Lazarus
Clyde Getty - Oldest Competing Freestyle Skier in the World I happened to sit next to Clyde Getty on a flight back to Colorado this week.
