A New Kind of Mobile Search…08.07.09

Here is an excerpt from an interesting Search Engine Watch post Surrounded By Search Engines: A New Kind of Mobile Search:

“…The mobile world will be a different story, mostly due to interfaces that are much more limited. Smaller screens and keypads will force mobile product developers to get clever with how we communicate with the device — including how we search.

This has recently involved accelerometers, cameras, and touch screens which form the basis for search interfaces that don’t involve typing (or tapping). These include UrbanSpoon, bar code scanners such as ShopSavvy, and music discovery engines such asShazam.

Mobile Search Raises Its Voice

Mobile products from Vlingo, Tellme, and Google have similarly taken advantage of the phone’s internal microphone to build voice search interfaces that find and call local businesses.

Voice search could have a bright future in mobile, and even evolve beyond the phone itself. For example, an area known as speech controlled Internet devices (SCIDs) transforms the myriad electronics that surround into their own little search engines.

Sensory Inc. is working on this proposition. It’s spent the past 15 years embedded speech recognition chips in about 60 million products — everything from in-car voice command systems to Bluetooth headsets, to voice controlled toys.

Nothing new here, but we could soon see all of these devices connected to wireless networks. Competition among wireless carriers is quickly driving wireless broadband (4G) rollouts, which will bring us more connected devices — 15 billion by 2015, according to Intel.

This includes everything from coffeemakers to teddy bears — items that don’t fit our typical view of Internet connected devices. In other words, they don’t come with keyboards or screens, making voice a logical input mechanism…”

Another issue that you must stay on top of is price fluctuations from the bookmaker. The prices for placing bets do not just change with different bookies but even with the same. You cannot take it for granted that the prices that are quoted in print like the Racing Post will be valid at the time of the event. With sports betting things can change very rapidly so be sure that the price will be honored before placing your bet otherwise this can seriously affect the outcome of your arbitrage sports betting.

Still, there are tons of bettors looking through rose colored glasses for the holy grail of betting systems that will let them make money without risking any. Well, there is a way to do that and it is called work! Gambling is called gambling for a reason, it’s risky. Let’s take a look at some sports betting systems.

Switching a service located outside of the United States it not hard to do. In fact it is quite easy since there are many quality services to choose from. The most difficult thing that you will need to do is find the one that best suits your needs.

So, having established that using a good Selection System is an absolute must if you want to make money from sports betting, how does the average Bettor actually go about making his/her betting selections? My research shows me that, in the main (ignoring the extremes), there are generally two approaches taken:

– The more conservative group looks at the “Short Odds” calls, and plays safe by selecting only those matches where they themselves feel very confident about the outcome.

– The more adventurous group analyses the matches and odds on offer, and then makes selections based on their own gut feeling about how the matches will turn out, making sure that the odds match their concept of a “value” bet.
