Here are some great coverage about the report:
1. Internet Trends magazine. KPCB curates the best articles about this year’s report on Flipboard.
2. The most important technology trend of 2014 is… the use of sensors. The number of “microelectromechanical systems” shipped every year has increased more than sixfold over the last five years, according to Forbes. The Internet of Things is already here.
3. Redesigning Mary Meeker’s ugly Internet slideshow. “It’s fascinating, penetrating, brilliant—and a crime against good design,” says Businessweek about Meeker’s presentation this year. So they gave it a fab makeover.
4. 2015 will be about ‘findable data’ and mobile sensors. The Guardian shares major takeaways from the presentation, noting both big trends and “smaller trends” that are “just as important.”
5. There is no tech bubble! In 3 slides, Meeker proves that, no, we are not in a tech bubble. “On a relative basis, we think there’s still … a lot of opportunity,” she concludes during her presentation at the Code Conference.
6. Mobile is killing media. Tom Foremski on ZDNet concludes that “the future looks extra bad for the media industry with the switch to mobile.” That’s because companies in media are “unable to monetize the ad opportunity in mobile by tens of billions of dollars,” according to Foremski.
