Netscape wunderkind Marc Andreessen, now about to turn a demographically middle-aged 38, has officially turned venture capitalist, a counter-culture move since the dot.com bust trashed the sport. Andreessen and fellow Netscape veteran Ben Horowitz have raised a relatively modest $300 million – which seems to be considered a goodly sum in these dire times – and have set up Andreessen Horowitz as they’ve been publicly threatening to do since February. Andreessen told the Financial Times they could have raised $500 million or $600 million but felt a twosome couldn’t handle that kind of money. They reportedly only intended to raise $250 million.

An asknet (FWB: A5A) survey of 400 smartphone users has found that in spite of a strong consumer demand for personal and business mobile applications, consumers are frustrated by the cost, accessibility, and mechanisms supporting mobile e-commerce.

Asset Management Growth Stalls as Risks to Profitability Emerge

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 09/13/12 -- The $58 trillion global asset-management industry faces rising headwinds and its growth has stalled, putting the industry's attractive economics at risk, according to a report released today by The Boston Consulting Group (BCG). The report, titled "Capturing Growth in Adverse Times: Global Asset Management 2012," provides the findings of BCG's tenth annual study of the worldwide asset-management industry.
