Turn Report Shows A 15 Percent Increase In Display Ad Costs And A 45 Percent Drop In Mobile

TechCrunch

A new report from online advertising company Turn suggests that costs for display advertising, video ads, and other rich media are rising, while those for mobile and social ads have fallen. The report also looks at a category of consumer that advertisers are spending heavily to reach — a group that Turn calls the “digital elite.”

The report is based on activity on Turn’s ad-buying and data-management platform between January and March. The company says its technology makes more than 50 billion advertising decisions every day.

Between January and March, the average eCPM (the cost per thousand impressions) for video ads grew 6.16 percent, from $9.41 to $9.99, Turn says. Display eCPMs grew from $0.92 to $1.06, up 15.2 percent. The company says this reflects advertisers’ desire “to reliably reach consumers through familiar, big-canvas formats.”

Mobile, meanwhile, dropped 45 percent from $1.31 to $0.72 — something that Turn attributes to…

Google Will Refresh Nexus 7 Tablet This Summer, May Drop Price To $149, Says Reuters

Nexus 7 is slated to release in south asian markets like india etc.

TechCrunch

Google will refresh its Nexus 7 tablet this summer, launching a new version powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor around July, according to Reuters — which is about a year after it launched the original Nexus 7. The news agency said two unnamed sources also told it Google is aiming to ship between six and eight million of the tablets in the second half of the year.

Google has not released official sales figures for its $199 to $249 slate, which is made by Asus, but an analyst estimate pegged sales for 2012 at between 4.5 million and 4.8 million, suggesting Mountain View is hoping to grow Nexus 7 sales significantly this year — even by as much as almost double.

According to Reuters’ sources, the forthcoming version of the Nexus 7 will get some hardware improvements, with a higher screen resolution and a thinner bezel design both being mentioned. It will…

Converser Launches To Power In-App Customer Communications After Raising $1.2M Seed Round

TechCrunch

Another Irish startup has thrown its wares into the in-app messaging ring. After working with and developing its product alongside a number of enterprise customers, Dublin-based Converser opens up to mobile developers today with an in-app communication platform that can be incorporated into iOS/Android apps to provide two-way communication with users — real-time chat, marketing messages, polls, feedback, and click-to-call — supported by what’s being described as a “self-learning” CRM system, and analytics.

The company is also announcing that it recently closed a seed round of $1.2 million led by Lough Shore Investments and Enterprise Equity, with support from Enterprise Ireland.

The idea behind Converser is to enable companies via their own mobile apps to learn more about and better target customers as well as “appify” customer communication. This includes advertising, direct marketing, and customer support, which would typically be conducted by post and over the phone, thus…

Google Starts Counting Android Activations Based On A User Visit To Its Play Store

TechCrunch

Google has made a small but telling change to how it reports Android activation data for the benefit of its developer community, switching from reporting device activation based on a general or background check-in to its activation servers to — starting this month — counting only those devices where a user visits its Play Store. The shift is a subtle one but indicates that Google is trying to help developers identify active vs passive users of Android devices, to sort the wheat from the chaff as it were. (h/t to Android Beat for flagging the change.)

It’s also more proof, if proof were needed, that Google’s priority with Android has shifted from driving adoption of its platform (which has become the dominant smartphone platform, with a 70% global share at the end of 2012) to driving usage in ways that play nicely with its own ad-driven business priorities. In the…

A Facebook phone: Is this the final brick in the social network’s walled garden?

Gigaom

Looks like it’s that time of year again — the time when rumors of a “Facebook phone” pop up like tulips after a spring rainstorm. This time around, it was a cryptic announcement from the social network about a mobile event next week that set the rumor mill in motion: since the invitation mentioned Android, the speculation is that the company will finally announce a handset that has full Facebook functionality integrated into it. It’s easy to see how this would help the social network build engagement and possibly monetize mobile, but do users really want one?

The invitation to the press event on April 4 said “Come see our new home on Android,” and since Facebook likely wouldn’t have an entire press conference just to announce a new app for the Google operating system, expectations turned to something more: namely, the much-hyped Facebook phone. According to TechCrunch…

Developer Freedom At Stake As Oracle Clings To Java API Copyrights In Google Fight

TechCrunch

Java_logoEditor’s note: Sacha Labourey is CEO of CloudBees was formerly CTO at JBoss. Follow him on Twitter @SachaLabourey. Steven G. Harris is senior vice president of products for CloudBees and was formerly SVP of Java Server Development at Oracle. Follow him on Twitter @stevengharris.

You could hear a collective sigh of relief from the software developer world when Judge William Alsup issued his ruling in the Oracle-Google lawsuit. Oracle lost on pretty much every point, but the thing that must have stuck most firmly in Oracle’s throat was this:

So long as the specific code used to implement a method is different, anyone is free under the Copyright Act to write his or her own code to carry out exactly the same function or specification of any methods used in the Java API. It does not matter that the declaration or method header lines are identical. Under the…
