Amazing But True: Netflix More Popular Than DVR

17 Mar

For years, cable and satellite TV service providers have used the DVR as a major competitive advantage. But, today, streaming services are changing the playing field. To the dismay of TV service providers, channels, and their advertisers, a huge number of customers are cutting the TV cord and turning to Amazon, Netflix, and other streaming subscriptions for their content — aided by smart TV sets as well as plug-in devices that can allow people to stream video content on their sets.

It may be hard to believe, given the dominance of the DVR just a few years ago, but today, slightly more U.S. households (and growing) have access to Netflix than to a DVR — according to Leichtman Research Group. The Leichtman study findings are summarized in the following Statista chart.
 

 

Connected Vehicles Generate BIG Data

14 Feb

This post is a follow-up to yesterday’s.

___________________________________________________________

As we know, the auto industry is in the midst of a major technological revolution. Although self-driving vehicles have garnered a huge amount of attention, “connected” vehicles will also have an enormous impact on marketing. Why? From the consumer’s point of view, connectivity means better Bluetooth interactivity, GPS systems, entertainment systems, roadside assistance, diagnostics, and more. From the seller’s point of view, connectivity means access to lots of big data.

Consider these observations from Felix Richter, writing for Statista:

“Modern cars are equipped with more than 100 sensors that create a constant stream of data. Measuring things like location, performance, physical parameters, and driving behavior, often several times per second, the amount of data generated by these sensors is immense. According to a McKinsey estimate, connected cars create up to 25 gigabytes of data per hour. That’s the equivalent of nearly 30 hours of HD video playback and more than a month’s worth of 24-hour music streaming.”

“According to the analysts in charge of our Digital Market Outlook, the data created by connected cars have a lot of potential in terms of monetization. Think insurance companies for example, who would likely be willing to pay good money to find out more about our driving habits. For more information about this exciting new market, please download our free market report Connected Car: Vehicle Services.”

Who Pays Interns the Best?

14 Dec

It can still be tough to land a good internship — especially one that pays!

So, how great would it be to score an internship with one of the firms highlighted by Statisa:

“According to new data from CB Insights, New York-based Two Sigma has the best-paid internships in America with an average monthly base salary of $10,517. The highest-paying tech company on the list is mobile application developer Asana. Founded by Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz in 2008, it pays its interns an average monthly salary of $9,600. Facebook itself comes further down the pecking order, still paying its interns an impressive $8,279 monthly base salary.”

Many Young Adults Still Live at Home

27 Oct

For a variety of reasons, young adults are more likely to live at home than ever. Among these reasons are: to finish school, to reduce spending, to save money after completing school, to begin repaying college debt, and to avoid certain household tasks.

According to the Pew Research Center, more young U.S. adults now live with their parents than before:

“In 2014, for the first time in more than 130 years, adults ages 18 to 34 were slightly more likely to be living in their parents’ home than they were to be living with a spouse or partner in their own household. This turn of events is fueled primarily by the dramatic drop in the share of young Americans who are choosing to settle down romantically before age 35.”

 

In industrialized countries other than the United States, how many young adults live with their parents? As Niall McCarthy reports for Statista:

“In many countries around the world, a huge proportion of young people still live at home with their parents. According to an OECD report, that trend is most pronounced in countries badly hit by the global financial crisis, particularly in Italy, Greece and Spain. 8 out of every 10 Italians aged between 15 and 29 still lived at home with their parents in 2014. In Scandinavia, youth living at home is a rarer phenomenon. In 2014, only 35 percent of young Swedish people still lived with their parents.”

Global Web Users: A Work in Progress

25 Aug

Recently, the International Communication Union, a UN agency conducted research on Web usage around the globe. Click here for a PDF of the highlights of its 2016 report based on this research.

Statista has devised an interesting chart from the ICU data. [See below.] And its Felix Richter  offered these insights:

“25 years ago, August 23, 1991, a British computer scientist made the World Wide Web available to the public. Tim Berners-Lee, who was then working at CERN, could not have imagined the impact his actions would have on the world over the next two-and-a half decades. Honoring this milestone in the history of the Internet, August 23 has become known as Internaut Day.”

“However, even 25 years after what some call its inception, the World Wide Web is not nearly as universally available as its name suggests. According to the latest estimates by the International Communication Union, a UN agency specializing in information and communication technologies, only 47 in 100 world citizens use the internet these days. While Internet access in regions such as North America and Europe has become a commodity not unlike electricity and running water, people in less-developed regions often still lack access to what has arguably become the most important source of information of our times.”

What Is the Price of an iPhone 6s Around the World?

26 May

Do you — or someone you know — own an iPhone 6s? If yes, what was the price? We know that in the USA, service providers are not providing heavily discounted smartphones the way they used to with the formerly standard two-year contract. Nonetheless, smartphone prices still vary by provider and by deal.

With the above in mind, how do average prices of the iPhone 6s vary around the world? As Felix Richter reports for Statista:

“The iPhone is not exactly cheap in the United States, but considering the prices that Apple fans have to pay in other parts of the world, the roughly $700 (depending on the state’s sales tax) that Americans have to shell out for an iPhone 6s seem like a regular bargain  — according to the latest issue of Deutsche Bank’s ‘Mapping the World’s Prices’ report.”

“While Apple has always been a producer of high-end devices, the iPhone’s price has recently become more of a problem with respect to the company’s overseas success. With dozens of Android devices available at a fraction of the iPhone’s price, even the appeal of the Apple brand may no longer be enough to win over emerging market customers. Apple’s CEO Tim Cook recently admitted that prices in markets such as India were high and that the company would be working on solutions to bring the price down to a certain degree.”
