Galaxy Note ad called most effective commercial in Q1

Posted by velisa@controlshiftonline.com on April 2, 2012 at 2:25 PM Comments comments (0)



Samsung's Galaxy Note promotion is going quite well, at least as far as its advertising is concerned.

 

A commercial for the device, called "The Best of a Phone andTablet," was rated the most-effective ad during the first quarter of 2012. The commercial beat out Doritos's "Sling Baby" ad and the M&M's "Just My Shell" to take the top spot.

Ad effectiveness is a subjective measure. In order to give some clarity to the rankings, Ace Metrix asks for viewer reactions to commercials running on U.S. television. The respondents are asked to measure persuasion, relevance, watchability, and several other ad characteristics. Ace Metrix then ranks ads on a 0-950 scale.

Why Apple?s new iPad isn?t able to charge while some games and apps are running

Posted by velisa@controlshiftonline.com on March 21, 2012 at 1:30 PM Comments comments (0)

We’ve already heard new iPad owners — and even the US Consumer Reports group — ratching up the issue of the increased heat put out by the device, and now it seems that charging the battery could be the next focus.

A number of new iPad owners are experiencing issues charging the device while they use it, as Gizmodo Australia spotted. Most of the reaction to the Consumer Reports write up has focused on the increased heat outputted, but the group does make mention of issues charging the battery whilst the tablet is active:

We also noticed that the new iPad wasn’t charging while the game was running and it was plugged in. In fact, the battery continued to drain. It charged normally, however, when we weren’t running a game.

This issue is verified by our own experiences and we’ve seen similar problems when enjoying apps that make use of its new Retina display. The reason is simply down to the sheer load which accumulates thanks to the added features.

As tested.com shows, not only is the Retina display adding to the load but its beefier quad-core graphics, the Backlight consumes 2.5 times as much it does in the iPad 2 and the display uses more LED bars.

Web Property Feeding Freenzy...

Buy-Buy-Buy!...

There has been a truly remarkable number of web properties (sites, tools, projects) change hands in the last two weeks.

  • This kinda started out a couple months ago with AOLs news division buying the Engadget tech site.
  • Then LinkedIn bought Rapportive, one of my can't-live-without-it Gmail plugins. Fortunately, they plan to keep it running.
  • Then the team at Buffer App, which I really like, acquired the coding responsibilities of the Digg Digg, social share button plugin for WordPress. This is a good move as the original dev was a bit flighty. Though how loyal the Buffer team is to the open source community remains to be seen.
  • Mashable is believed to be in talks with CNN over a possible acquisition. Like Engaget, this one does not thrill me. Though it will open the stage for someone to step into that role over time.
  • And last but not least, the death keel plays for Posterous as Twitter buys them up and plans to remove support from them.

Introducing the new iPad.
