Bloomberg Media has developed technology to connect its TV and digital ad inventory

One of the most valuable pieces of technology in ad-supported media today is the tech that can connect media companies’ linear TV and digital advertising businesses. That technology doesn’t fully exist yet, but it’s beginning to take form. Bloomberg Media has developed a technology called Bloomberg Interlink that, as the name suggests, will enable the media company to link its ad inventory across its linear TV network and digital properties. The company will initially use the technology to update the banner ads that appear on screen during its TV shows,…

Bringing People And Technology Together Will Help Us Win The Cyber Battle

Not one day into 2019 and the year’s first data breach was reported by the Victoria Premier’s Department in Australia, and a couple of days letter a truck load of high-profile German politicians and other individuals found their personal data had been leaked on Twitter. Seven days into the New Year and I have no doubt cyber security professionals are already exhausted at the prospect of what the next 53 weeks of 2019 holds. Cyber security is frequently referred to as a ‘cat and mouse’ game and while it’s certainly…

Germany and China plot to turn Frankfurt into EU finance powerhouse after Brexit

The bilateral pledge came as a result of German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz visiting the Chinese capital this week. Mr Scholz met China’s vice-premier Liu He who promised to take down economic hurdles for German financial institutions interested in doing business in his country.

ZTE nubia Red Magic Mars soon coming to the UK and Europe

A landing page has already been set up and you can sign in your email address so you can receive a notification once it arrives. According to the drop-down menu on the landing page, the phone will be available for purchase in the UK and Europe. But as manufacturers do, ZTE’s sub-brand nubia didn’t give any specifics around the release of…

The vivo Z1 Lite comes with a Snapdragon 626 chipset that has its octa-core CPU running at 2.2 GHz. There is 4 GB RAM and 32 GB storage on board with a microSD slot for up to…

BlizzCon 2018: Warcraft III remastered, and Overwatch gets a new cowboy

BlizzCon 2018 is the end of an era. Just a few weeks ago, Blizzard announced that co-founder and longtime president Mike Morhaime would be stepping down, replaced with J. Allen Brack. Today’s Opening Ceremony kicked off with Morhaime saying goodbye, and you know what? I’ll miss him. He was a great presenter, not in the overly slick way I’m accustomed to seeing at these sorts of shows, but with a quietspoken passion for the company he’d helped guide for 20-plus years. Blizzard lives on, though, and while 2019 won’t be…
