Ad Blocking is Eating Up More than 20 Billion in Global Revenues

first_img The report concludes that mobile will likely be the next frontier for ad blocking and that the software’s adoption rate will continue to climb. With that in mind, the writing on the wall seems clear: Digital advertising’s future is in serious jeopardy. Globally, close to 200 million Internet users are using ad-blocking software, and that number is expected to keep growing rapidly. As magazine media looks towards new ways to counter losses in print ad sales through programmatic selling and other digital ad products, ad-blocking software poses a paramount challenge. Could that mean that print advertising will have resurgence? Or does it mean that magazine media will lose out on even more ad spend? For now, it’s anyone’s guess. One silver lining for publishers (for now) is that mobile ad blocking is still in its infancy, accounting for less than 2 percent of all blocked ads. Fortunately, most publishers are starting to capture half or more of their pageviews through mobile traffic, so as that migration continues, the loss of ad dollars on desktop could be offset. However, it’s not unreasonable to expect ad blocking to become more common on mobile devices in the near future.center_img More troubling than the adoption rate is the lost revenue at stake. The report says that the global loss of ad dollars due to ad-blocking software is an estimated $21.88 billion and $10.78 billion in the U.S. alone. That’s roughly a quarter of the cumulative earnings of the total U.S. magazine industry. According to a recent report from PageFair and Adobe, ad blockers are catching on quickly and accounting for massive losses in potential ad revenue. In just one year, the number of average monthly software users increased 41 percent between Q2 2014 and Q2 2015. In the U.S., the adoption rate grew even faster at 48 percent, which accounts for 45 million monthly active users.last_img read more

Tesla tweets video of electric Semi hauling vehicles for delivery

In November, Musk tweeted that Tesla “just acquired trucking capacity” to improve Model 3 delivery times. In March, a filing from the SEC showed that Tesla registered about $14 million worth of company stock in order to acquire trucks and trailers from California-based Central Valley Auto Transport, Inc., further boosting its delivery capabilities.While the Semi is not yet a production vehicle, according to a text message from a Tesla spokesperson, the Semi has been used “many times” for hauling to and from Gigafactory and elsewhere, so it appears there are no issues surrounding the idea of using a development vehicle for real-deal deliveries. The spokesperson also confirmed that the cars in the video were actual owner vehicles, and that those vehicles were delivered to their owners using the Semi. Nevertheless, it’s clear that Tesla is determined to get its own trucks delivering its own vehicles as the automaker expands its offerings and the markets in which they’re sold. 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500HD first drive: Teched out for towing The Tesla Semi isn’t even in production yet, but it appears at least one early model is getting put to work.Tesla on Monday tweeted a video of its all-electric Semi hauling a carrier’s worth of Tesla vehicles. The tweet’s caption makes it sound like the Semi is actively participating in delivering Tesla’s production vehicles, and it definitely looks good doing it.

US columnist accuses President Donald Trump of sexual assault

first_imgUS President has denied the allegations and said that he had never met her.A US magazine columnist has accused President Donald Trump of sexually assaulting her at a New York luxury department store in the late 1990s.An excerpt from E Jean Caroll’s book titled ‘What Do We Need Men For? A Modest Proposal’ was published in New York Magazine on Friday. It divulged details about her experience of sexual assault by “real estate tycoon” in first person account headlined ‘Hideous Men: Donald Trump assaulted me in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room 23 years ago. But he’s not alone on the list of awful men in my life’.Caroll revealed that she had met Trump at the store when she was 52 and helped to suggest a gift for ‘a girl’ after he sought her advice.She claimed that between 1995 and 1996, he ‘lunged’ at her at the upscale Bergdorf store’s lingerie section, and pushed her against the wall while attempting to kiss her.  “I am so shocked I shove him back and start laughing again. He seizes both my arms and pushes me up against the wall a second time, and, as I become aware of how large he is, he holds me against the wall with his shoulder and jams his hand under my coat dress and pulls down my tights” she wrote.While she had confided to two friends about the assault, where one said that she should report to the police while the advised Caroll to not reveal anything because “he’ll bury her with 200 lawyers”, she had decided to not lodge a criminal case. New York reported that both the women had confirmed their accounts on the incident.However, Donald Trump has denied all allegations and claimed that he had never met her and called the publication a “crooked newspaper”.Just revealed that the Failing and Desperate New York Times was feeding false stories about me, & those associated with me, to the FBI. This shows the kind of unprecedented hatred I have been putting up with for years with this Crooked newspaper. Is what they have done legal?…— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 21, 2019He accused the Democratic party to be behind the recent controversy in a statement, “If anyone has information that the Democratic Party is working with Ms Carroll or New York Magazine, please notify us as soon as possible. The world should know what’s really going on. It is a disgrace and people should pay dearly for such false accusations.”The White House has also denied the accusations and stated, “This is a completely false and unrealistic story surfacing 25 years after allegedly taking place and was created simply to make the president look bad.”Regarding evidence, Caroll claimed that the department store no longer had security footages of the time the incident took place.She described that the reason she didn’t lodge a formal complaint was that he will deny the allegations like the way he denied the accounts of two dozen women who had confided about his unwanted sexual advance before. She also said, “I run the risk of making him more popular by revealing what he did”.Trump was under fire after 15 women alleged Trump of gross sexual misconduct before he became the president.A video of an Access Hollywood footage had emerged during his 2016 presidential election campaigns in which he controversially stated of having the liberty of grabbing women by her vagina because of his popularity,He had apologised for the statement and said that it was “locker room” talk.last_img read more
