First Venture Capital Funded iPhone Apps: Whrrl, iControl – Mac Rumors
- Been waiting for more info about the Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers VCing of software development for Apple’s Touch devices (through the so-called “iPhone SDK”). Their decision to throw so much money in the Touch devices pot sounded like a rather radical move, especially in this climate. But it was possibly a move to wake up a whole industry. Unsurprisingly, the first two products are associated with well-known “Next Big Thing” concepts: location-based recommendations and home automation. – post by enkerli
It’s quite possible that these two projects are more radically innovative than they sound at first blush but they do relate to well-known concepts. I personally have high hopes for location-based services but I wish these services were taken in new directions.
