Jim’s idea: M commerce SMS application to track information of users via SMS on their mobile phones. Information about users is held in a central database where info comes up after a number is received (name, age etc.)*More people have phones than pc’s (4* more phones than pcs in a few years) Field marketing research through mobile commerce.
Sms – reliable + works (wap has problems) – basic function
Jamie’s idea: For website that pays users and tracks their online habits for a fee (market research) + sells to big Internet companies who need this information but want to avoid infringing on users privacy (as they may be unwilling to be tracked).
Idea: Software customisation Browser customization for advertising incorporated in all buttons + browser in general. Partnership with navigator or explorer.
Corporations setting up ISP’s (for employees to get free net access outside work) Sponsored by corporations. All about marketing. If u use a specific browser adds will increase effectiveness – constant reminder – more social, people identify with beer, cars (if u drive bmw would like icon, Guinness/bud etc)
