More Charts   The smartphone revolution has already remade a bunch of industries: software, music, and even transportation have all been irrevocably altered by the fact that more than a billion of us now carry a powerful internet-connected computer with us at all times.The next industry to go is advertising.Zenith Optimedia predicts that advertisers will spend almost $75 billion more annually on mobile advertising in 2018 than they do today.No other segment will see anywhere close to the same growth, and advertising in newspapers, desktop web content, and magazines will continue to plunge.The two companies best positioned to capitalize on this growth today are Facebook, which owes nearly all its revenue growth in the last four years to mobile advertising, and Google, which has a strong advertising platform for the mobile web.This is also why Verizon is making big investments like buying AOL, whose mobile advertising strength was attractive, and increasing its video content.NOW WATCH: Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam explains why he bought AOLLoading video...

Database giant claims web ads goliath tricked court, Android isn't just phonesAnalysis Oracle says one of the foundations of Google's legal victory in the Java API copyright trial has exploded – and that means a retrial is needed.Oracle was trying its luck in court yesterday, demanding a retrial – although regardless of its success in forcing a third trial, the outcome of the second trial is on course to be heard by an appeals court.Although the debate around whether "Android is Java" or merely "very Java-like" can and probably will continue for years, it's irrelevant from a legal point of view, for the facts aren't in dispute.Google's Android team copied some 11,000 lines of code from Sun's Java core library as it created the mobile operating system, and evidence subsequently presented to the court shows that executives knew the team probably needed a license from Sun – and set about negotiating one.At first, Sun's ponytailed CEO Jonathan Schwartz was at the zenith of his "take everything – take it all" phase, but this changed in 2009.
