  • App glut means problems, report says
    Application discovery and developer revenue may become more problematic given a glut of apps hitting the market, a report by Research2Guidance says. Rip Emerson writes that the report indicates that "the number of new apps in the world's major app stores has now exceeded the demand ... which has led to diminishing returns in revenue and is now beginning to reflect the role of paid content on the Web."

  • Spam declined last year, Kaspersky says
    The amount of spam sent last year declined from previous years, even though it still accounted for nearly three-quarters of all e-mail around the world, Kaspersky Lab says. The security firm says the number of malicious attachments to e-mail declined to 3.4%. "This [overall] drop is the result of a gradual departure of advertisers from spam to other, more convenient and legal means of promoting goods and services," Kaspersky's Darya Gudkova said.
