Multiscreen Availability Key to Successful Subscription Content – eMarketer

source: http://www.emarketer.com/Article/Multiscreen-Availability-Key-Successful-Subscription-Content/1010068

Universal access isn’t always simple or possible, and content owners are still in a steep learning curve when it comes to monetizing their digital assets. However, the success of subscription models across a range of industries in recent months has caused many to rethink the conventional wisdom that people expect all digital content to be free.

As consumers become accustomed to accessing content on all screens, mobile is helping drive growth in digital media subscription revenues.

Sony puts micro ads on Wimbledon player, ushers in an era of 4K marketing

Sony puts micro ads on Wimbledon player, welcomes commercialism in 4K

Sony is shipping its Bravia X9 line of 4K TVs in the UK this week, and it wants to convey the advantages of all those extra pixels. The solution? Advertising that’s as finely detailed as the screens themselves. It’s putting micro ads on the fingernails and uniform of tennis player Anne Keothavong as she makes her way through Wimbledon, showing how the extra detail pays off. Few of us will get to see the ads in full clarity, however — while Sony and the BBC are recording some of the event in 4K, they’re playing that footage at an experience zone on the Wimbledon grounds. We’re not looking at a decisive marketing coup, then, but those left squinting at home will at least know what they’re missing.

timespentperdevice1. Why Cross-Screen Marketing Will Be A Game-Changer For The Mobile Industry [REPORT]The question ad buyers have is whether advertising across screens can really help drive forward an overall campaign goal better than TV-only or traditional online campaigns.

In other words, is it worth the trouble? A growing number of mobile ad industry companies are arguing that a cross-screen approach integrating mobile is more effective.

CHART OF THE DAY: This Is A Business That Will Die In Five Years, According To BlackBerry’s CEO

Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/chart-of-the-day-macs-vs-ipads-2013-4

BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins said, “In five years I don’t think there’ll be a reason to have a tablet anymore.”

He believes we’re going to carry around a single device that powers all our other screens. That since device is going to be a smartphone in his opinion, and therefore tablets are going to be totally irrelevant.

He also says, “Tablets themselves are not a good business model.”

To which, we present this chart from Dan Frommer. As you can see, through three years the iPad has sold 140 million units, almost double what Apple has done with the Mac.

Perhaps the wheels fall off this thing, and it disappears from existence in five years. We doubt it.

The reason the iPad sells well, despite being slightly redundant, is that people like to have dedicated gadgets. People don’t want one device to power everything.

BBC iPlayer viewing on tablets overtakes that on phones

BBC iPlayer viewing on tablets overtakes that on phones

When we think of BBC iPlayer use on mobile devices, we most often picture someone catching up on dramas with their smartphone during the commute home. Not anymore: newly available March stats from the Beeb reveal that tablet viewing has overtaken phone viewing for the first time. The difference is slight — tablets are only 200,000 requests ahead, at 41 million — but it’s enough to suggest that many now prefer bigger screens when they’re away from a computer or TV. While the broadcaster hasn’t directly explained the change in demographics, it’s not hard to see a possible explanation based on viewer habits. The BBC notes that most tablet-bound iPlayer users watch TV, and most iPlayer TV time overlaps that of traditional viewing, when audiences are more likely to be at home with the larger devices at hand. If you’re one to curl up on the couch to watch Panorama on an iPad or Android slate, then, you may just be part of a growing trend.

Samsung mulls sale of Dutch e-ink display subsidiary to Amazon

Samsung mulls sale of Dutch EInk display subsidiary to Amazon

It’s not often that we hear of Samsung suffering from buyer’s remorse, but it looks like it should have kept e-ink manufacturer Liqavista’s receipt in the box-file marked “Important.” Bloomberg’s Person Familiar With The Matter(TM) believes Samsung is trying to flog the Dutch electrowetting display outfit it bought two years ago — back when such technology was the holy grail of screens. Now the Korean giant is looking for a sub-$100 million sale to Amazon, which might be able to use the tech in future iterations of the Kindle. When asked, a Samsung spokesperson said that the acquisition didn’t meet its expectations, which makes us sad for the future of e-ink devices beyond e-readers — now the folks at YotaPhone are our only hope.

CHART OF THE DAY: Surprise! iPhone Demand Is Fine (AAPL)

Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/chart-of-the-day-iphone-5-demand-2013-1

The story that’s terrorized Apple’s stock for the past month is iPhone demand is weak.

Apple reportedly cut orders with suppliers in Asia for iPhone screens and other components. While there are many theories about why Apple cut its order, the most popular seems to be that iPhone demand is weak.

And yet, something about it doesn’t make sense.

Analysts have quietly raised holiday quarter iPhone estimates. Why do that if demand is tanking? Shaw Wu of Sterne Agee said today that demand is “robust.”

Analysts could be wrong, but here’s another piece of evidence in their favor. ChangeWave surveyed 4,061 people in North America about their interest in smartphones. 50% of them said they plan to buy an iPhone in the next 90 days, which is right in line with Apple’s previous demand after a big iPhone launch.

If demand was truly crumbling as some would have you believe, would this chart look like this?

Now That High-Res Screens Make Cameraphone Shots Look Ugly, Will You Use an Actual Camera Again?John Herrman over at Buzzfeed FWD astutely points out that all of the flaws of cameraphones (noisy sensors, poor focus abilities, artifacting, etc.) are being exposed now that we have large screens (both in size and resolution to display our images on). Going forward, is this enough of a reason to make you go back to carrying a proper, standalone camera? [FWD]
