Excerpt: Today GoPollGo announced that it has been acquired by Yahoo Mobile. The online polling company hadn’t reached its third birthday. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. The service that GoPollGo has operated will be shuttered, with the company noting that it will “no longer be supporting GoPollGo’s properties on the site, embeddable widgets or mobile app. ” The company cited its usership as in the millions. The reason for the pickup is likely talent, given that GoPollGo had developed a mobile version of its technology, and Yahoo is desperate to grow its ranks of mobile developers. As a firm, Yahoo is looking to shift its entire product line towards the mobile space.... read the full post.

Excerpt: At Freshdesk, we know that our customers depend on us to support their customers. And we take our application availability and performance very seriously.

Our operations team immediately took to investigating the cause, and discovered that the system was repeatedly getting hung on a deadlock due to a suboptimal DB query hitting our database.

Excerpt: For PivotDesk, working hand-in-hand with Foursquare makes perfect sense. We are an inherently location-based service, and integrating with Foursquare allows us to bring a wide range of benefits to our customers. Foursquare’s mobile app is especially enticing for us because we have focused on our desktop application and do not have a perfect mobile experience. The first idea that came to mind was to utilize the new Foursquare pages feature, so we created a Foursquare PivotDesk page. On our Foursquare page, we wanted to show off all of our amazing hosts. Each host is listed on Foursquare as what they call a Venue, which just means it’s a location that anyone can check into using the Foursquare app.... read the full post.

Telco Alcatel-Lucent has been pursuing application enablement as a top-down initiative from the CEO since 2009, but the market has changed in the past four years, and the vendor is finding it no longer has a role -- or a business model -- for helping operators expose their application programming interfaces (APIs). In fact, Alcatel-Lucent isn't playing the role of intermediary between operators and developers at all any more.... read the full post.
