Uh oh, are you saying Obama has been listening to Congress?
Some Android tablets with 8gb of storage have less than 1gb avaliable for Apps. Some tablets have less than 512mb available. Why is the /data partition so small on some Android devices? Why do I have to hack and root my device to install apps on the internal SD card? s it an Android Bug? Is it because Google caved in to Microsoft's lawyers? Is it because I should have bought an iPad instead?
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Ya, you buy something online and immediately thereafter, till your next purchase, they keep advertising the same item to you everywhere you go online. Or even if you do a search of one item, they bombard you with the items of the same category. As you said just like paper ads, you don't even look at it. The sites that have an ad before reading an article, I just exit. There are so many other sites that you can get the same information without an ad jumping in your face. How effective is that!
Do you think we are going a bit higher for the next week to two before retreating for the Earnings in early Oct again?
It has been so manipulated Whole system needs to crash and burn. Start over with reality not manipulation games over for Wall Street to manipulate a recovery with greed only.
Most of these internet ads no one watch,AOL is notorious -you cant read an article without watching some stupid ads first,sometimes you go to a site and there are so many ads waving in y our face,all of them you dont care .
what I am watching now on this page-Fidelity $7.95?no thanks,I already have a discount brokerage account.
On the other side of the screen,there are discount ink cartridges,I just bought some last night (this is how they found out I maybe interested in ink cartidge) but I wont need any more until 3-6 months from now.
Online Ads are no better than paper ads,the best is to throw them away.
As three makes a trend, a third quarter in a row of cost-per-click decline for Google advertising makes this an unsettling norm not only for the search company, but also for Internet advertising efforts elsewhere. During last quarter's earning call, Google reported a 16 percent decline in CPC, meaning the value of each advertisement clicked has gone down. That follows a 12 percent drop from previous quarter and 8 percent the quarter before that. Even at the company that managed to make money off of Internet advertising, those online ads are continually losing value.
In the scheme of the Internet, Google's loss shows an unfortunate reality of online advertising. Unlike the print world, Internet ads lose value over time. As Technology Review's Michael Wolff bluntly put it: "The nature of people's behavior on the Web and of how they interact with advertising, as well as the character of those ads themselves and their inability to command attention, has meant a marked decline in advertising's impact," he writes. Google eluded online advertising woes by making itself a necessary middle man, via Ad-words, Wolff continues. And it did this early, which also helped, explains SmartMoney's Jack Hough. But even that hasn't stopped the core inevitability that online advertising is a race to a bottom, as we've seen these last three quarters.
Google has blamed this on mobile, only further proving the ever-declining value of an Internet ad. "People have long described the price difference between print and Web ads as moving from analog dollars to digital dimes," explains The New York Times's Claire Cain Miller. "Cellphone ads could be described as trading those dimes for mobile pennies. Clicks on mobile ads cost about 40 percent of the price of desktop ads, according to Stifel Nicolaus," she continues. And, unfortunately for the ad-sales biz, the stats show mobile use is on the rise.
appears pretty obvious our president is following the wisdom of the Chinese General who wrote THE ART OF WAR, Sun Tzu.... Don't take the bait, keep your real plans mysterious, be deceptive always,don't let the enemy define the time and place for battle. This is his approach to radical Islam. Most don't understand this..even underlings in his own party............................ 2 guns blazing.. that was the path of the previous president Obama is a true genius, and way beyond that!!
I like the sound of this. It is always great to catch these up and coming MicroCap Tech stocks early before the hit it big. With 10 million dirt cheap shares sold at just 15 cents will make one a ton of money. I am going to take a bite and will use the profits to buy more Google stock.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
This is a great Micro Cap play. Search Engines are hot cakes on Wallstreet. The company is focused on the local search space. Research show that is where the industry is headed.
