    Google Data Saver

    Google made its own try in late 2015, when it launched a new feature to help web pages load faster while using up to 70 percent less data. This new upgrade to its Data Saver mode automatically stops images from loading on web pages on Chrome for Android devices. It saves significant amounts of data for users on slow connections.
    -
    Launching initially in India and Indonesia, the feature was aimed at emerging markets where Internet connection has traditionally been a major issue.
    -
    Google’s effort begins to fill a rather large gap. Google was able to identify the true problem that many consumers in countries like India and Indonesia face: connectivity. Most mobile users in these areas are operating on a connection no stronger than 2G. This is something western consumers, and even western technology companies, fail to understand.

    Google’s upgrade to its data saver mode removes images from the page, allowing a smoother, faster connection when browsing the web.
    -
    While Google’s efforts are certainly commendable, there are a few pieces to the puzzle that the organization has overlooked in terms of truly solving connectivity issues in emerging markets. This upgrade to the data saver mode will provide improvements for mobile and html5 users.

    But according to “ The Mobile Economy India 2015,” a new report by the GSMA, mobile broadband enabled devices only make up 12 percent of India’s population. This leaves a vast number of consumers unaffected by Google’s new upgrade. Google aimed to provide a solution to an overarching problem that many mobile users in regions like India and Indonesia face, one that many other companies have failed to even identify. But they have missed the mark by not taking a device-agnostic approach.

    Another consideration that technology brands should not overlook is that successful customer acquisition in regions where connectivity is not that of the U.S. requires cross channel marketing. It requires the use of USSD

    You're a freaking IDIOT!
    If you're wondering who might need something like this, just think about tethered smartphone connections and the like, where using Chrome at full blast on a laptop might pull down more data than you anticipated. It can be hard to meter just how much data is being used on the fly, so the Data Saver extension at least makes that pretty straightforward. And if you want to make pages load a bit faster on shared connections at Starbucks or wherever else, this can help to some extent with that, too.

    .

    Always too greedy and trying to scare you into selling. HOLD if you own because eventually it will reverse. We are getting closer to a bottom and no one knows when we will hit it. I'm guessing somewhere around $20-$25 a barrel, but it could dip momentarily bellow that. Unless you're a day trader it would make sense to sell and buy back in a little lower, but what if this is bottom? Like I said no one know for sure. Less

    Sentiment: Hold
