    Вести.net Android Wear is dead, and blame Qualcomm

    Android Wear is dead, and it is the fault of Qualcomm under such headlines published an article in the edition of ARS equipment. Reporters noted that Google's project here is just such "smart" watches, Android Wear, which is pretty ambitious began 4 years ago, is now virtually abandoned. The thing is that Qualcomm since the release of the first version of Android Wear and has not made a new chip for "smart" hours. And he that was in from the start, can not be considered advanced even in those days. As a result, affected producers who began to produce "smart" clock on Android LG, Huawei, Motorola, Asus.

    According to journalists, the Android Wear can finally bury if Qualcomm will not release a new processor this year. And so far, no indication that it will happen there. Qualcomm is in principle possible to understand – "smart" watches are sold much worse than the smartphones. Therefore, in the short term to focus on chips for more profitable phones.

    On the other hand, many experts believe that in the current situation Qualcomm is making a strategic mistake – he actually leaves the market to two major players – Apple and Samsung.

    The first has already won more than half the market of "smart" watches, Samsung share of about 20 percent. And if the Apple Watch only works with iPhones, the product of South Korean company, on the basis of Tizen OS, is compatible with both iOS and Android. So if Android Wear will die, the market will be only one line relevant from a technical point of view hours for the owners of Android-smartphones.

    It remains to note that over the past year, Google itself has not released any updates for the Android Wear watch. And at the last conference Google I/O about the platform said not a word. Still waiting for may – the beginning of the month will be a new Google release conference. If there is Wear left without attention – it will mean the final sentence of the draft.

    Facebook is losing popularity among American youth faster than previously thought. As analysts expect the company eMarketer, this year the social network will take 2 million Americans under the age of 25. And a much more deplorable situation with the youngest audience – less than half of all adolescents aged 12 to 17 years will go to Facebook at least once a month. It is expected that the youth that remain in the social network, will spend less time.

    And this is despite the fact that Zuckerberg and already reported a decrease in time of content consumption after the introduction of the new algorithm. It is expected that the company will only partially compensate for the loss of a young audience through Instagram, there will attract a little more than half a million people. In addition, Facebook itself will come the older generation – although the company is constantly trying to rejuvenate and escape from the older audience. The final result is still not in favor of Mark Zuckerberg – it is expected that the social network will lose one percent of the audience in the States. What is curious – according to analysts, the users will go first in Snapchat – but this social network will attract about 2 million young people.

    It was from Snapchat and other social networks in the first place – the same Facebook – copy the new formats. For example, Stories and disappearing messages. And Instagram started to warn users that someone is making screenshots of their stories is another feature of Snapchat. But despite this aggressive play of the competitors, Snapchat continues to attract a young audience – the most promising, according to advertisers. That would be something to do with it, mark Zuckerberg last year announced the messenger Kids – a product for children that focus on safety. Already then said that due to this, the company will attempt to teach children from childhood to use the social network. What will happen is not clear, because the Teens are fleeing from FB interface, and from parents who were sitting there.

    However, in any case, experts do not expect any changes in the market will affect the profit Facebook and not 2015. Then, the social network lost interest in a young audience, but increased profit by almost 50 percent.
