Marissa Mayer Snaps Up Stamped and a Raft of Celebrity Backers Can’t be Wrong

Why would Marissa Mayer buy Stamped only to eliminate its products? Stamped is an app startup that’s run by several of her old Google chums. Since taking over the reins at Yahoo back in July, speculation has been rife on what Mayer’s first purchase will be, and now all of those who have been waiting with baited breath for her to get the check book out can rest easy as the deed has finally been done. Those looking for media jobs will no doubt see opportunities increase in the clamour as startups shout to get their share of the Yahoo purse. Who or What is Stamped? Stamped is a mobile and web app that allows users to share and keep track of the things they like such as restaurants, books, shops, films and other apps. Users can access the recommendations of their friends and those of the so-called ‘tastemakers’ – key influencers that include top chef Mario Balati (who is an advisor to the company), and film critic Peter Travers. Instead of rating a book, restaurant or film with a star rating or feedback, you simply ‘stamp’ the item to show your approval. As a user grows their social connections,…

Techcrunch: Set to Disrupt NYC from 29 April – 1 May 2013

Disrupt is a place where any startup’s dreams can come true. It’s a platform for new businesses to highlight their products and maybe even snag themselves a shiny investor or two… Following the success of 2012’s final Techcrunch Hackathon and Disrupt which took place in San Francisco, the America’s foremost technology event will travel back to NYC and provide a platform for startups to hawk their wares and for those looking for media jobs the chance to meet potential employers. This year’s September event saw around 330 new businesses vying for the attentions of visitors, which included investors and incubators as well as journalists – all eager to make their prediction on what might be the next big thing. Bring out the Hackers The Disrupt event always kicks off with the Hackathon – a 24-hour chance for developers and hackers to show what they’re made of and come up with a fantastic concept. It’s a fun way to make a serious point – that great ideas are borne from collaboration, creativity and good old fashioned hard work. This year’s Hackathon again demonstrated the tenacity of the hackers, developers, designers and project managers, who, fuelled by donuts, beer and red bull;…

Experience a New Way to do Business with Hyperfair

Most entrepreneurs know that attending expos and fairs is all part of doing business, but how about being able to network, exchange cards, collect brochures and view new products without leaving your desk? Fresh from California incubator RocketSpace, 3D virtual events specialists Hyperfair are putting their money on making a success of online careers fairs, exhibitions and conferences and have just secured $1.1 million in seed funding to help them develop their proposition. Who knows – those looking for technology or social media jobs may also find their next post at a virtual expo. So What’s New? We all know that developers have tried and, on occasion, failed to create effective virtual business events – with clunky graphics, static spaces and an inability to tap into the imagination of delegates and get them through the ‘door’, the market for these products has been somewhat unpredictable. However Hyperfair aims to raise the bar by offering a service that stands head and shoulders above the rest. COO Andrea Ballarini claims that while competitors seem to offer a static experience, Hyperfair provides much more interactivity. The tech allows users to move their avatars around a 3D space and the interface is easy to…

Add to that the fact the company saw a 300% increase in big data sales up to September 2012 over the same period in 2011 and you have a serious player on your hands. Sounds Impressive, But What Does it All Mean? The website claims ‘Pentaho tightly couples data integration with business analytics in a modern platform that brings together IT and…

Songza Makes its First Trip Outside US and One Million Canadians Can’t Be Wrong

Free music streaming service Songza has offered it wares outside the US for the first time and bagged itself a million new users in the process. Sounds impressive, but when you add to that the fact that these Songza converts have signed up in a little over two months then the figures are really rather startling and great news for anyone looking for music media jobs. It also snatched one million new users in just 10 days in the US following its iPad launch, and has accrued two million more since then. The $1.5 million the company attracted in outside funding in a round led by Amazon.com Inc., Deep Fork and Metamorphic also inspires confidence. So what is it about Songza that makes it so attractive? It’s a free music streaming service that operates on a radio license and can provide listeners with personalized playlists. So far, so Spotify and Pandora. However, when you add into the mix that Canada doesn’t have access to either Spotify or Pandora then it perhaps begins to make a little more sense. Canadian audiences can use Rdio or 8tracks, but these aren’t even in the same league as the aforementioned streaming giants. So What…
