First of all, I think the entire advertising industry is in dire need of a makeover.We re in such an interesting place where marketing is starting to diverge into two separate groups - brand marketers and performance marketers.Brand marketers want your company to be known, recognizable and loved - and have a set budget to do so.They don t typically track metrics other than number of visitors per page.Performance marketers are quantitative experts who are using data to make marketing decisions, sometimes at the cost of the brand have you ever clicked on an ad that said Click here!Ad tech allowed this process to start by giving marketers more data.
If you ever lose your job, an emergency fund can help you stay afloat while you look for a new gig.There are some additional expenses you have to pay for when you lose a job, though.Don t forget to budget for these when building your fund.Most experts say you should sock away at least a few month s worth of living expenses in case of an emergency.As the Motley Fool points out, it s easy to miscalculate how much you ll need, though.For example, if your employer pays for your insurance premium, don t forget to factor in the additional expense of paying for your own plan if you lose this perk.
The rapid proliferation of solid state drives has relegated WD s Black and Red drives to data storage duty, but it hasn t slowed down the company s ambitious plans at all.The recent acquisition of Sandisk brings a wealth of new properties to WD s arsenal, and the newest to find its way to market are the Green and Blue solid state drives, in both 2.5-inch and M.2 form factors.Those familiar with WD s existing color-coded structure will recognize blue and green as the more budget-friendly tiers.With quoted sequential reads up to 545 megabytes per second and writes up to 525MBps, these drives fall in line with others in their price range, like the perennial favorite Samsung 850 EVO.Where they really excel is endurance.The smaller 250GB is rated for 100 terabytes written, while the 500GB version is rated for up to 200 TBW, and the 1TB reaches a whopping 400TBW.

I have spent about 300$ on Adwords & facebook and gotten squat out of it.So I have absolutely zero belief in marketing.I am confident that my products are good but they're super-niche.Obviously I would be willing to spend if I I'm guaranteed a return but I know it's not that simple.Seeing most of the posts here, it's like everyone here works at companies with thousands of dollars to blow on advertising.And I see some of those copywriting anecdotes, people getting 10x returns from advertising.
It sounds like the plot of a low-budget sci-fi movie: satellites in orbit are subject to a mysterious navigational blackout when they pass over the equator between South America and Africa – and it only happens at night.This is just what the Swarm experiment has experienced since it was launched in 2013.Swarm is a European Space Agency ESA mission in which three identical spacecraft fly in formation around the globe, mapping the Earth s magnetic field with 'unprecedented precision and resolution'.Data being downloaded to mission HQ at Potsdam, Germany, showed no position information at certain times and locations.For years, experts were left baffled by these blackouts.Now, the culprit turns out to be thunderstorms in space – or more specifically the ionosphere, between 300 and 600km above the Earth the official boundary between atmosphere and space is 100km .

Google s not taking it easy in its push to market the Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones — according to recent reports, the company has already spent $3.2 million in TV ads since it announced the device, and some ad executives suggest that Google will spend hundreds of millions in an effort to keep up with the likes of Samsung and Apple.The advertising budget makes sense for Google.The release of the Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones puts the company in direct competition with Samsung and Apple, so Google needs to make a big push if it expects to make waves.While Google has declined to offer specific numbers about its marketing campaign for the Pixel, it has said that it is running a very significant marketing campaign, according to a report from Reuters.Not only that, but the report states that the company may even buy ads during Thanksgiving football games, which can run into multiple millions of dollars.It will be interesting to see how Google approaches its advertising campaign.

Netflix s appetite for original shows and films, and the ballooning budget they require, has drawn criticism from skeptics, but CEO Reed Hastings doesn t believe the industry is in a bubble.In an interview with New Yorker editor David Remnick at the TechFest conference, Hastings explained that twice as many TV shows are made today than five years ago, and Hastings pinned the cause for all this increased spending on the rise of new ways to distribute shows like, ahem, Netflix .Cable networks like FX and broadcast networks like ABC continue to invest in shows, and now Amazon and Netflix are adding into that, so the total number of shows over the last five years has nearly doubled to a little over 400.There s never been more people working, the prices are up, the ecosystem s incredibly healthy, but it s tougher competition for all of the existing players.I think what s happening is distribution is getting better and then we now can afford better content.So, if you think about the highest-end movies, the budget will be about $150 million for production, so about $100 million per hour of content.But if you think about the very biggest TV — Game of Thrones, The Crown — that s about $10 million per hour in production budget … but what s the difference?

It's National Space Week, and we ve got some tips to help you take some great shots of the night sky, using various pieces of tech including your smartphone.If you want to stick with your smartphone, you can definitely take great pictures of the night sky, but if you want to get closer to celestial objects, you can buy telescopes which work with your smartphone s camera.Similarly, you can also use compact cameras, CSC and DSLR cameras depending on what you already have or want to buy .If you re using a smartphone on its own then you ll be limited pretty much to one focal length – some notable exceptions aside.If you re working on a budget, perhaps consider a superzoom lens instead – an 18-250mm or 18-300mm should get you a little bit closer without breaking the bank too much.If you want to keep costs low, consider other ways to keep your tripod steady, such as by hanging a heavy bag off the central column to keep it weighted down.
