Kevin – you hit the nail on the head! – the vast majority of SMBs and Professionals simply need an easy, quick and cheap way to present their services in a mobile-friendly way. New British based start-up http://www.telnames.com has laser like focus on this huge market opportunity, utilising .tel’s unique domain technology. For one small annual fee of just £14.95 ($24), in around 15 minutes businesses can choose their own top level domain, populate their single page with contact info. and rich profile content including map, photos, video link and coupon – and that’s it, they’ve created a very smart mobile optimised single page web presence. Everything is included – .tel name, smart page template, hosting – no hidden extras, no ads, and excellent usability for both mobile user and merchant self-set up. Everything is click to call, click to email etc, and all social media links can be added e.g. like this London fashion jeweller, http://youniquejewellery.tel/
Businesses own and control their named place online which gets indexed in search and which they can promote everywhere – they are not a subordinate of somebody’s else’s site e.g. a sub-domain. Content updates take just a minute to complete. Telnames’ rapidly growing customer base does include Pizzerias and Plumbers http://baffitos.tel/, as well as Life Coaches and Hypnotherapists http://hypnotherapy4life.tel/ – a wide spectrum of colourful Service Providers and Professionals as can be seen on Pinterest: http://pinterest.com/telnames/our-customers-tel-names/
Telnames’ aims to quickly build on its positive reaction from the UK SMB market with global expansion either directly or via strategic partners especilally those focused on accelerating SMB mobilisation.
Best, Ian http://ianbm.tel/

The girls at June Jordan School for Equity in San Francisco addressed a long-standing biology class problem: how to avoid cutting up all those frogs year after year, thus saving money and frogs’ lives. They came up with an app that virtually dissects the slimy amphibians, allowing students to tap into the magic of digital animation to do the dirty deed right there on the smartphone’s screen.
“Approximately 2.5 million frogs are dissected in high school biology classes every year,” said one of the team members, pitching her heart out to the three judges. And without anyone questioning her math, she went on to posit that “with each frog costing $4, that’s $10 million spent on frog dissection annually. Our app will cost each student $1.99. So we can save the schools $5 million and we can make $5 million.”
And that’s a win-win-win … if you include the frog.
