In 2007 the VP of information security at Sony Pictures bragged about their lax security because studios aren't banks http://t.co/jQsVV6x8RA@fmanjoo @BenedictEvans celebrity boobs & leaked SSNs are news to some people just not your readers. Seems we agree then. 😊@fmanjoo @BenedictEvans you should let your peers in the media know. I saw dozens of news stories during celebgate@BenedictEvans @fmanjoo is there a difference that doesn't boil down to "my readers are/aren't interested" ?Dr Dobbs Journal shuts down due to decline in ad revenue - http://t.co/g75AqKbNoK #programming #oldschoolWikipedia: “Argentina determines whether to observe daylight saving time on a year-by-year basis.” Developers: “What.”

@mdudas @fmbutt @asymco @chrismarriott @counternotions CPA is popular for app install ads but most display is CPM not direct response/CPA@mdudas @fmbutt @asymco @chrismarriott @counternotions True. They're priced by impression (CPM) which doesn't translate to being viewed 😊@counternotions @zachwe what percentage of TV ads are seen by people who watched the show during sweeps week(which is used for pricing ads)?@mdudas @fmbutt @asymco @chrismarriott @counternotions the metrics are about display market (i.e. DoubleClick) so they are priced per viewGoogle admits half the ads it charges advertisers for are not seen by users.

Just accidentally clicked on an XML file. 😱http://t.co/VRIcvnEqTn #visualstudio #programming #funny@bbach you know how much those products spend in advertising despite Amazon's good discoverability? Products still need to create awareness@bbach ask your friends how often they think "I need a new app. Wonder what's new in the App Store"? App install ads exist because it's rareApp discovery can't replace ads. People don't go to app store to look for new apps. That's like going to a theater looking for new movies"The critical need for app install ads stems from GOOG/APPL negligence around app discovery" - This is a dumb idea http://t.co/4Fzwek9603
