BERLIN/CHICAGO (Reuters) - People with hay fever hate dust. That was the premise of a marketing drive launched by British vacuum cleaner maker Dyson with U.S. retailer Target Corp. FILE PHOTO: Facebook, Amazon, Alibaba and Google logos are seen in this combination photo from Reuters files. REUTERS/File Photos Using data about its customers’ shopping habits, Target homed in on shoppers who likely had allergies and showed them ads for Dyson’s cordless V6 vacuum on social media and Target’s website. The result: sales for the vacuums doubled among shoppers who regularly purchase anti-allergy treatments and products such as Claritin or humidifiers on Target.com and in stores. Data about real people and real behaviors “actually get a much stronger result because the fidelity of that data is so much richer,” said Kristi Argyilan, Target’s senior vice president of media and guest engagement.

Editorial By Daniel Eran Dilger Wednesday, February 21, 2018, 03:30 am PT (06:30 am ET) Across 2017, Google heavily promoted its Pixel phone brand. Despite being lauded as being "the world's most valuable brand" and its status as the world's largest purveyor of advertising, all of Google's global efforts, including DoubleClick and YouTube, resulted in inconsequential Pixel sales. Worse than its failure to sell hardware is the fact that Google has proven that its advertising simply isn't very effective.Pixel 2 and 2 XL were premium priced, poor sellers The embarrassing performance of the micro-Pixel Last fall, Google released two second-generation "Pixel 2" phones, one it created in partnership with HTC and a larger 2 XL it produced with LG. However, across all of 2017--including the critical holiday launch quarter--Google's total annual sales of Pixel phones amounted to just 3.9 million units worldwide, according to research director Francisco Jeronimo of IDC.

Android as a platform hasn't historically been known for its security – quite the opposite, in fact: there's been tons of reports of malware infecting the operating system, and even Google's own Play Store. But the company has stated its intent to combat the problem many times, and this has led to implementing several measures to that effect, such as the now-standard monthly security updates. Today, Google has released its yearly security report for the platform, highlighting what it did to fight the problem of Android malware throughout 2016.First of all, with the launch of Android 7.0 Nougat, Google added several new behind-the-scenes features designed to enhance security. First of them is a streamlined our boot-up process, which makes installing OTA updates much easier to install. Along with it came support for file-based encryption, and a re-architecturing of components to prevent a future Stagefright-like attack, along with many other, smaller changes.Besides this, … [Read more...] about Google’s latest security report reveals 2016’s most patched Android smartphones

I wonder if it could mean that phones will cost even more on the front end? posted on 15 May 2015, 12:59 1 8. MrElectrifyer (banned) (Posts: 3960; Member since: 21 Oct 2014) Worst comes to worst, Google will just show a "Google search has been blocked by your carrier" message when it detects who your carrier is (through your IP)...increasing the price of them already overpriced phones just makes more room for companies like Xiomi and OnePlus (makers of reasonably-priced SmartPhones) to grow. posted on 15 May 2015, 09:32 0 2. theguy2345 (Posts: 1216; Member since: 24 Jun 2014) This is bad for google if it starts to spread.
