first_img10 November 2013 Orlando Pirates gave it their all against defending champions Al Ahly, but a 0-2 loss in Cairo on Sunday evening left them 1-3 losers on aggregate in the final of the Confederation of African Football (Caf) Champions League and the Egyptians African champions for a record eighth time. The South Africans created some gilt-edged goal scoring chances, but some indifferent finishing and the Eagles greater experience of the big occasion made the difference in the contest. The Buccaneers were by no means overawed or outplayed and on another day might have got the result they were seeking, but getting the ball into the opposition’s net is the name of the game and Pirates failed to do that. They nonetheless enjoyed a fantastic run to the final and overcome some stiff hurdles to memorably defeat TP Mazembe and Esperance. Their results also included a 3-0 win over Al Ahly in Cairo.Bright start With the Egyptian giants having scored an away goal in a 1-1 draw in Soweto in the first leg, Pirates knew they needed to score at least a goal away from home to be in with a shot at the title and this led to a bright start from the men in black and white. Play was a little scrappy in the beginning, however, with both teams giving up possession a little too easily as they attempted to catch out the other with long balls. Although it was an away game for the Sea Robbers, they weren’t sitting back and were taking the game to the Egyptians. The South African side’s forwards were doing a good job of putting pressure on the Al Ahly defenders when the home side had possession. In the 8th minute, Pirates had the first decent opportunity of the match when they were awarded a free kick about 10 metres outside the box after Sifiso Myeni was brought down. Daine Klate, though, fired in a left-footed shot at about waist- height, making it was easy for goalkeeper Sherif Ekramy to deal with.Flying header After a quarter-of-an-hour, Mohamed Naguib got onto the end of a teasing cross from the left. He met the ball with a flying header, but his effort flew to the left of Senzo Meyiwa’s goal. It was, nonetheless, Al Ahly’s best chance in the early going. Ahmed Fathi then made a fine run from the back, beating a number of attempted tackles before finding Abdellah Said at the far post. The pass had just a little too much on it, however, and Said couldn’t bring it around to challenge Meyiwa. Pirates came close to finding a breakthrough in the 20th minute, but Ekramy flew off his line to block Tlou Segolela’s low shot from close range after the winger had cut in from the right to pick up a defence-splitting pass.Palmed behind Meyiwa was tested shortly afterwards by Ahmed Abdelzaher, who fired from long distance, forcing the Pirates’ net-minder to palm the ball high and behind for a corner. Myeni, whose direct running made the defenders look uncomfortable, won another free kick outside of the Buccaneers’ box after 28 minutes. Oupa Manyisa tried his luck from distance, but was off target and Ekramy went untested. Thabo Matlaba blasted a powerful shot at the goalkeeper from a long way out after a sharp spin and turn, but Ekramy was able to get his body behind the ball and comfortably catch it.Should have scored Segolela should have scored and given Pirates the lead when Klate picked him out with a cross to the far post from the left, but he mistimed his jump, with an open goal in front of him, and his header from only a few metres out failed to find the mark. Two minutes from the break, Meyiwa had to rush off his line to close down Abdelzaher, who appeared to have an open shot on goal. As the break neared, Al Ahly were flopping about like fish around the Pirates’ box as they attempted to win a free kick from the referee, but time after time he turned their protests down. Half-time arrived and a small melee followed the whistle before the teams left the field with the score still goalless, but the game far from short of action. Early in the second half, a back pass by Al Ahly forced Ekramy to sprint outside his box and clear to prevent Lennox Bacela snapping up the poorly judged ball.Goal In the 54th minute Al Ahly hit the front after Abdellah Said shot from outside the Pirates’ box. The ball deflected off of a defender and fell to Mohamed Aboutrika, who poked it past Meyiwa. The crowd went wild and fireworks filed the Cairo night. It was a somewhat fortuitous strike, but the chance had fallen to the Egyptians’ talisman and he had made it count. On the hour mark, Klate forced an untidy save out of Ekramy with a swerving, long range effort that bounced just in front of the goalkeeper. Bacela then missed an excellent opportunity to level matters. After being played in down the middle of the box, he beat the goalkeeper to his right, but his snap shot then flew across the face of goal. The crowd breathed a collective sigh of relief. Another good chance had fallen to the Sea Robbers and been spurned. Abdelzaher fired off a shot after Aboutrika headed on from a goal kick, but his effort flew wide to the left of Meyiwa’s goal. Still, it warned the Buccaneers that they needed to be wary at the back while they went in search of an equaliser.Doubled their advantage In the 78th minute Al Ahly doubled their advantage. The goal was scored by Abdelzaher, who side-footed it home after a mishit shot from the right by Ahmed Fathi sliced across the Pirates’ defenders to Abdelzaher on the left of the box. Taking his chance, he hit it first time and Meyiwa was beaten for a second time on the night. Refusing to lie down, the Sea Robbers took the game to the Egyptian giants, but the home team’s defence continued to hold firm. With only eight minutes remaining, Sherif Abdel-Fadil, who had been shown a yellow card earlier in the contest, was shown a red card for a second foul after a reckless challenge which took out Klate in the air. Al Ahly were down to 10 men. It did not cost them despite four minutes of additional time being played. They effectively ran down the clock, even creating a few more goal scoring chances, and came away three-one winners on aggregate.last_img read more

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Alternatives to Cable TV Which brings us to the all important content. Television has always been about consuming content and 2010 was another step forward for services that provide online TV content. Hulu has been the most high profile of these services, due to its ties to the U.S. TV networks. In November, Hulu lowered the price for its premium service “Hulu Plus,” in an effort to attract more users. Previously, Hulu Plus was $9.99 per month, but in November it dropped to $7.99 per month.Hulu Plus is also available on set-top boxes such as Roku.Overall, 2010 has been a year of much progress in online TV. Of course, in the U.S. the main television networks still rely mostly on ‘offline’ TV for their revenues. And consumers by and large still watch popular shows like Mad Men through cables piped to their television sets. But if 2010 is any indication, the Internet has well and truly arrived as the future of TV. Let us know your thoughts on Internet TV in 2010 – do you watch much television online? ReadWriteWeb’s 2010 In Review:Top 10 Semantic Web Products of 2010Top 10 RSS and Syndication Technologies of 2010Best BigCo of 2010: FacebookTop Trends of 2010: App StoresMost Promising Company For 2011: SimpleGeoTop Trends of 2010: Internet TVTop 10 Startups of 2010Top Trends of 2010: PrivacyThe new Apple TV has a lower price (now $99, compared to $229 for the first generation product), streamlined form (80% smaller), streaming functionality, no more local storage, Netflix and YouTube access, and 99c TV show rentals. It remains to be seen if the new version of Apple TV brings as much success to Apple as its other consumer devices.It’s a competitive field in the set-top boxes market, so Apple will have its work cut out in 2011. Boxee and Roku are two startups in this field worth keeping an eye on.Google TV In May, Google announced a new Internet TV product called Google TV. The most interesting aspect of the announcement was the developer ecosystem that Google introduced to television. Google TV will not just allow you to view television programs and online video content, it’ll also give you access to Internet TV applications built using Google’s mobile operating system Android.Google is positioning itself as an Internet TV platform, rather than offering a hardware component like Apple TV and Microsoft Mediaroom. On the hardware side, Google partnered with electronics giant Sony. This quote from the Google Blog in May is key to understanding what Google is aiming for: “your TV becomes more than a TV — it can be a photo slideshow viewer, a gaming console, a music player and much more.” Looking back on the year in Web technology, we can see that several product categories have evolved significantly over 2010. We’ve already written about App Stores and eReaders. Another market that progressed in 2010 was Internet TV. Among the developments: Apple announced a major overhaul of Apple TV, Google launched its Android-powered Google TV platform and partnered with Sony, Boxee and Roku continued to improve their set-top box products, startups like Clicker innovated new types of web services for Internet TV, and content platforms like Hulu captured more viewers.In this post we review the Internet TV market over 2010 and highlight the big stories of the year.Apple TV & its Competition When it comes to Internet-connected consumer electronics, Apple dominates several key markets already: music (iPod), smartphone (iPhone) and tablet (iPad). However its Internet TV product, Apple TV, has been much less successful… so far. In an attempt to change that, in September Apple announced a re-designed Apple TV. Internet TV Web Apps: ClickerGoogle TV and other similar platforms will foster an ecosystem of Internet TV apps, similar to what’s occurred with smart phones over the past few years (albeit on a lesser scale). An app that may be a sign of what’s to come is Clicker. Billed as a “TV Guide for the Internet” when it launched in November 2009, Clicker is essentially a browser-based portal for your TV. It enables you to search for online TV programs, subscribe to them, watch them inside the site, and more.In September, ReadWriteWeb spoke to Clicker co-founder and CEO Jim Lanzone. He told us that Clicker’s goal is to build “the ultimate programming guide for the next generation of TV, which is about navigation and discovery.” He added that “it’s not just finding TV shows, it’s also how you decide what to watch.” Tags:#2010 in Review#Features#Video Services#web#Year in Review Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts richard macmanuslast_img read more

first_imgWhat it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Poor investments that have not acquired new users.Lack of an aggressive deployment strategy for its high-end smartphones.The fact that Apple and Samsung eat the lion’s share of global smartphone revenue.The first two problems can be remedied if HTC is smart with how it develops its next series of phones and pushes them out to cellular carriers. And that will help with the third problem, too.A Dangerous SituationThe Apple and Samsung duopoly at the top of the smartphone market is not just dangerous for HTC, it spells trouble for every other smartphone maker. Nokia and RIM – two companies that have fully earned their Deathwatch positions – have already felt the pain of competing with the iPhone and Galaxy devices.This is no longer an Android versus iOS issue. This is about whether or not there will be room for any smartphone makers apart from Apple and Samsung. Consumers like choice, especially when it comes to top-of-the-market devices. Competition creates diversity and diversity begets creativity and innovation. If the entire mobile ecosystem comes down to a profit race between Samsung and Apple, the whole market will likely suffer.So, does HTC have a chance to turn things around? The Apple and Samsung duopoly looks strong for the short term. So as of today, HTC is on notice: Find a way to become relevant again or the Deathwatch awaits.  Related Posts Tags:#HTC Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfacescenter_img By many accounts, HTC is the third best smartphone manufacturer in the world. It creates quality devices that consumers like and can go toe-to-toe with anything that rivals Samsung, Apple, Motorola or Nokia throw at it. Yet HTC is slowly dying. As the company’s profits are whittled away, the likes of Apple and Samsung are building an impenetrable duopoly at the to of the market. Sure, the HTC One series sits at the very top of the smartphone market and HTC’s Windows Phone 8 devices rival the quality of those from Microsoft’s preferreed partner Nokia. But HTC is struggling to sell those devices and continues to lose money quarter after quarter – even as Apple and Samsung just grow stronger.Headed For A DeathWatch?The question is whether or not the decline is irreversible. Is HTC one strong quarter away from being a major player again? Or is it a couple more poor quarters away from earning a dreaded spot on the ReadWrite Deathwatch list?HTC’s margin for error continues to shrink. For the third quarter, HTC’s revenue fell 23% from the second quarter and 48% from Q3 2011. Its operating profits were just $167 million, down 76% from the same quarter a year ago. (At least it wasn;t a loss, though.) HTC’s profits have taken a hit due to failed investments, such as Beats Audio and ImageSense, that have failed to entice users away from competitors. HTC also has not released a major device since the HTC One X on AT&T and the EVO 4G LTE on Sprint in May/June. The release of the One X was held up by a patent injunction from Apple, which significantly reduced sales and the company’s second-quarter profit. By the third quarter, consumers were beeing wooed by the Samsung Galaxy S 3 and then the iPhone 5 – and HTC didn’t have anything new to offer as we approach the critical Holiday shopping season.HTC’s Strengths & WeaknessesThe HTC One series are high-quality devices. The company has spent significant marketing dollars in the U.S. (if not quite as much as Samsung and Apple). The company shipped 7.3 million smartphones last quarter, according to IDC, good for fifth behind Samsung, Apple, RIM and ZTE. But HTC’s profit margins are dangerously low. In the third quarter, its margins were 7% and its margins are expected to be around 1% for the holiday season. That makes it difficult for HTC to mount effective marketing campaigns around new devices or spend big bucks on meaningful partnerships able to cut into Samsung and Apple’s lead.

first_imgSale leaders underestimate just how much impact their sales force can have on the execution of their strategy.If you do not intend to lead with price, competing on price is a change of strategy. “But we are not competing on price,” you say, “We are competing on value.” This may or may not be true, but every time you match a competitor’s price, you have decided to compete on price. More still, every time you beat a competitor’s price to win new business, you are absolutely competing on price—and by doing so, changing your overall strategy.If your product or service isn’t undeniably the best in the category to the point that it defines that category completely, you cannot compete on product or service. “Our product really is better than our competitor’s,” you say. If you insist. Look, you know far more than I do. That said, almost everyone has a good product or service. If you lead with product, you are selling features and benefits. This means you are selling at too low a level to be compelling, differentiated, or a trusted advisor.When your salespeople compete on product without that actually being your strategy, they lose because they have decided to change your strategy.I know, you want your team to compete on value creation. You want them to be consultative, and you want them to be considered trusted advisors, peers of your clients. But when your sales force isn’t equipped to sell value, that’s the same as not having a disruptive, insight-based strategy.Some portion of your sales force will try to make selling easy by competing on price, when it is not to your advantage to do so, and by expecting the product to sell itself. It is likely that this isn’t  possible in an economy that is commoditizing everything it can.If you don’t want your sales force to change your strategy, then you cannot be responsible for changing the strategy either. This means you can’t allow your sales force to compete in ways that aren’t aligned with your strategy. Essential Reading!
