PubNub: Push Real-time Data to Mobile, Tablet, Web
Stashed in: @daltonc
I like the slogan: Connecting everyone in the world in under a quarter second.
I had never heard of this company before!
Oddly enough, I know one of their investors: http://relayventures.com/people/john-occhipinti/
I had pretty cool encounter with these guy on startup conference. So I'm talking to one of these guys trying to understand their product.
To clarify what it is, I asked:
- "So... is it like JMS, but on the cloud?..."
and the guy is saying
- "Hm, I'm too young to know what JMS is..."
Which got me thinking... "Am I too old to know what JMS is?...":)
Hm, honestly I did not get what exactly are they doing... I'm yet to get excited about the “secret project”...
He is talking a lot about good paid API and ranting about AD supported business models, sure... I agree.
Which specific developers need this “secret project” will cover?
Well, it sounds to me like he wants to build a Twitter that is paid for not with ads but with subscriptions.
Adam, this is a much better introduction to the real-time cloud messaging service powered by PubNub:
