Android and Chrome OS could get huge Windfalls From Slowing Worldwide PC Economy

Android and Chrome OS could get huge Windfalls From Slowing Worldwide PC Economy

The global PC market is shrinking, and continues its downward trend according to recent data, which means that there are a lot of device manufacturers interested in looking around for what to do next. Acer is one such company, and the company is trying to put the blame on Windows and to find a better solution, according to the WSJ. This could be a very popular song in the years ahead of other manufacturers such as Acer, and this is a great news for Google.

Acer is trying to mitigate its losses in the PC market for the growth of your business is not Windows, and do it quickly. Android is the logical choice for the plans of smartphones and tablets, and Acer President Jim Wang told investors during the quarterly earnings conference call last night that his company "sees a new market there for Chromebooks."

C7 makes the Acer Chromebook, a $ 199 device that has much in common with netbooks in the past, but it runs Chrome OS, the operating system of Google Desktop that more or less has the Chrome browser and extends its capabilities a bit '. It is expected that Chrome OS and Android to make up about 10 to 12 percent of the revenue of Acer later this year, Wang, and could go up to 30 per cent by the end of 2014. Chromebooks up about 3 percent of the total sales of PCs Acer in Q2 2013, which does not sound like much, but it shows an impressive growth in the course of a largely experimental must embark on a well-established market.

The situation is similar to what the other PC makers are seeing. Asus chairman Jonney Shih said the Windows RT basically not helping with slowdown in PC sales, and the company is seeing clearly enough interest for their devices associated with Google Nexus 7 for another round with the new version launched last month.

In the past, Apple has been the beneficiary of a market in crisis PC, iPad sales have increased progressively PC sales have declined, making it seem that there is a direct correlation must see tablets from Apple, satisfy the customers to the point where there was no time mainly the operation of iPads instead of Windows-based notebook. But iPad sales were actually up to the last quarter, for the first time in history. This may be due to a new release cycle that saw no new hardware iPad launched in early 2013, but it could also be a sign that there are other people who can benefit from the decline in PC sales.

Tablets based on Google's mobile operating system have been slow to find its audience, but they are gathering pace, so that Windows was not able to match that market. Chrome OS devices may still be a small fraction of the notebook market, but, at least, represent a different approach with seemingly growing appeal - something that can not necessarily be said of Windows 8 yet. If consumers are acidification on the traditional PC, it makes sense that OEMs will have to put more stock in something like Chrome OS, which has the opportunity to do something other than the business-as-usual approach or so of Microsoft , which actually picking up some of the most innovative aspects of the Windows 8 platform with the next update 8.1.

Google has a number of things going for it in terms of being able to capitalize on the PC industry slowdown: the licensing model means that you can take advantage of the need for manufacturers of existing equipment to put their existing infrastructure to date, and drives the most successful mobile operating system on the planet, in terms of widespread adoption, and it is a name and a brand recognized and trusted around the world.

Once upon a time, there was no reason to take a risk on experiments for Android or Chrome OS for tablet laptop computers to OEMs like Acer, because Windows is a safe and comfortable platform investment income from which milk. This is no longer the case, and could be a very good thing in terms of agitation in consumer devices in the PC market particularly tired.

Facebook fight Snapchat send Instagrams letting the Messenger

Facebook fight Snapchat send Instagrams letting the Messenger

Snapchat sends 200 million messages a day private photos. WhatsApp sends 325 million. These are scary numbers for Facebook that shows visual communication is growing, so you just start allowing Messenger for iOS users to send Instagrams and pictures from other albums do not move the camera. This shows that, although not push, that is serious about the trend in visual communication.

Have you been able to send picture messages in an album for a while "with Messenger for Android, but iOS version previously only selects the reel. The problem is that when you post to Instagram is saved a copy of the building a disk device "Instagram" separately.

Now click the paper clip icon to compose a message and then add pictures, there is now a drop-down menu at the top to draw pictures of their other albums. This is not exactly direct Instegration (sorry), but it certainly brings photo sharing application closer to its parent. Facebook has been delivering considerably acquire Instagram, which lives up to its promise.

[Updated: At first glance, this is a small update. Nor is there any API or other direct connection between Messenger and Instagram. What matters is what signals the intentions of Facebook with the visual communication. ]

But in the 16 months since the billionaire Sale, there was a big change in the way people use the photos. For years I have shot with care and shared with many people - similar to what we did in the analog film era. But chat Snapchat and international applications changed. Suddenly, the photos were taken shamelessly arm and not shared in private by its artistic value, but to get a message.

This has become the year of visual communication.

Photos Mayflies self destruct Snapchat is useful for the most awkward, embarrassing or outrageous. And he adds a sense of urgency. Yet an equal contribution to its rapid growth in popularity is forcing communicate visually. You can not send the text alone. Instead, you can use the photos and video to provide a complex idea or emotion so quickly and clearly.

Thus, photo messaging has much in common with stickers, small pre-made illustrations and animations that can be sent in many chat applications. I sent a lot of them and I feel I have been a huge success for Facebook. Both are a substitute for the boring text.

Messages are more personal photos, however. Where are you? What are you doing? How do you feel? You can answer all these questions with a quick photo. Is not it annoying how long or generic type messages as text messages "at home", "Chillin '" Okay ". Each location, activity and expression of the face is unique, with visual communication. This is what makes it addictive yet satisfying.

Instagram photos ReelThose two words might be second compound surname Facebook. ** The first serious attempt of visual communication, the Saca Snapchat clone quickly fell through the roof and I have not been pushed by month. But why force people to download something new when the social network runs some of the most used mobile applications in the world?

And here we are, messaging on Facebook Instagram Messenger. Invite applications for inclusion in the main Facebook soon. It could become users to convert their favorite Instagrams convey emotions. What are you doing? Latte art. How do you feel? Portrait of laughter. And if enough users find the option to decline and use, you can also start taking Instagrams with the purpose of sharing. It might also be a good way to ensure that a specific friend see his masterpiece, if you know you do not frequent the Instagram feed.

The question now is, will add Instagram private photos and video messages?

* The cash and stock purchase price has been at the end of seven hundred million

**The addictive Facebook -satisfactory

Block the unwanted advertisements

Google has a filter that reads the content published on the page and display advertisers interested in increasing the clicks. But not always the case properly and any ad that shows just might not be optimal. You can then block that URL, so that the owner will no longer appear and increase your click through rate (CTR). You can do this from the control panel of your Google Adsense account.

You may already have noticed that Google has a system that reads the page and filter the most relevant ads for the reader. So this means that the more focused the content, the better the click through rate (CTR). Each article discusses one or at most two different issues alone, the more targeted your content is easier for the system identification of keywords and relevant ads that generate a lot of clicks.

Use the colors of the blog
When you create a new flag in Adsense, you have the option to set the colors of it. My advice is to create a flag that looks like the blog design, like a game menu, header, sidebar, background etc.. So your chances of receiving a click is much higher. Another suggestion is to take the edge off cold banners. This can be done easily by putting the edges of a same color as the background of the site.

I think they should be very careful about what kind of flag that serve the best in his blog, that the spaces that produce more, and everything else will have something like a test 5 or 6 months. It 's very important that you do as the tests, change the banner, record results, analyze the most profitable areas. Only then will be able to take 100% advantage of this great affiliate program. Always read NOTICES! posted by the team of Adsense and follow the instructions which often optimal size of the flag you should put in your blog suggests.
