I am looking to talk with someone who has experience/knowledge in the field of targeted advertising and real-time bidding.

I am involved in a travel social media startup and, while it is not my part of the project, I would love to talk to someone knowledgeable about the relationships between our own advertising, the data we will collect, and the advertising opportunities we will create.

Anyone have time for a few, perhaps novice, questions?

With all the free games given away in recent months, I dare say you could’ve assembled an entire PC gaming backlog for free at this point.

Enter GOG.com with another game (or two!)

to throw on the pile: Stronghold HD.

In case you missed it way back in 2001, Stronghold blends the builder and real-time strategy genres.

Taking place in Medieval Europe, you need to design and build out your own castle, then fill it with troops and send them off to your enemy’s (probably much more historically accurate) castle.

It’s a classic, and well worth picking up even nowadays.

Now, millions of people flock to New Year’s celebrations across the country to laugh, drink, dance, and be merry with friends and family.

These parties are spectacles to behold, but the influx of people presents a very real logistical problem: massive shortages of public transportation.

Some have the advantage of volume, while others offer the best price or superior technology.

If you’ve got a larger group, the app lets you split the fare among passengers regardless of whether you spring for Uber’s large sedan (uberXL), SUV (UberSUV), luxury car (Lux), and/or multiple mid-level cars.

Unlike Uber, Lyft caps premiums at 400 percent.

Gett is appreciably more reasonable when it comes to pricing, though: the service never charges a premium during busy hours.

Uber managed to grow its business in the last quarter, despite a few bumps in the road.

The San Francisco-based ride-hailing startup's revenue in the fourth quarter rose 11.8 percent to $2.2 billion compared with the previous quarter, a source confirmed Tuesday.

Uber's gross bookings rose 14 percent to $11.1 billion in the fourth quarter compared with the previous quarter.

It also narrowed its loss to $1.1 billion from a loss of $1.46 billion in the previous quarter.

Uber isn't yet a public company, so it isn't required to publicly disclose its finances.

But it started the practice last year, suggesting it may be looking to take the IPO plunge in the near future.

The news (extracted from Katadata):

Indonesia’s supreme court, the country’s highest judiciary institution, has overthrown key parts of the regulatory framework that affect ride-hailing companies like Uber, Grab, and Go-Jek.

18 paragraphs were ruled to be in conflict (PDF link) with existing laws regulating SMEs and the transportation sector and declared ineffective.

Among the passages up for removal are those calling for an upper and lower limit for ride-hailing app tariffs, as well as restrictions on driver recruitment and promotions.

The supreme court’s decision came in June, but today the transportation minister told media tthat he is aware of and will respect the ruling.

It should come as a relief to ride-hailing startups who were faced with having to significantly change the way they operate to achieve compliance.

The reality is that real time messaging, whether it’s Slack or WhatsApp, is incredibly distracting, and it’s wreaking havoc on our productivity.

According to Gloria Mark, a leader in the field of “interruption science,” “the average knowledge worker switches tasks every three minutes, and, once distracted, a worker takes nearly a half-hour to resume the original task.” Real time chats keep you in a constant state of distraction because quick replies are expected.

Think about how much more you could accomplish if only you stay focused on the work in front of you.

Samuel Hulick summarized this well in his viral article Slack, I’m Breaking Up With You:

“With you in my life, I’ve received exponentially more messages than I ever have before.

And it must be relevant, meaningful and discoverable.” – says Aurelija Urbonaviciute, organizational psychologist and co-founder of Tipi.

Samsung’s 2020 business strategy for TV sales is simple: 8K or bust.

With its QLED 4K TV sales being undercut by budget 4K TVs, Samsung plans to shift the market again, to a format that has (so far) very few competitors, but also very little native content.

Yet as we saw in our 4K vs 8K comparison test earlier this year, you don’t actually need video shot in 7680 × 4320 (8K) resolution to take full advantage of those millions of pixels—Samsung’s 8K TVs use AI upscaling to convert any video type (SD to 4K and everything in-between) into 8K resolution.

But with 8K TVs needing to fill four 4K TVs worth of pixels, conventional upscaling methods just don’t work, for reasons we’ll get into below.

Now, after visiting the Samsung QA Labs in New Jersey and speaking with its engineers, we have a better idea of how Samsung uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to make 8K upscaling possible—and how its AI techniques compare to other TV manufacturers’ early AI efforts.

That’s 345,600 pixels of content, which would only take up a tiny window on modern TVs with higher pixels-per-inch (PPI) ratios.

Admiral Grace Hopper famously explained a nanosecond using an 11.8-inch wire, as that is the maximum distance electricity can travel in one nanosecond.

This quick video of Hopper is worth watching if you haven’t yet seen it.

With this in mind, it is easy to see why nanoseconds are the unit used to measure the speed of hardware, such as the time it takes to access computer memory.

What happened: Ride hailing giant Didi published a public announcement last night, admitting that the company itself cannot satisfy the whole Chinese ride hailing market’s demands.

The company also stressed that it would strictly follow related regulations, and continue strengthening safety management.

Didi also said that it has increased the number of safety supervision staff by 300%.

Why it’s important: The announcement signals Didi’s tacit gesture to admit a dominant (even a monopoly) position in China’s ride hailing market.

Welcoming new players show Didi’s open attitude to comply with the government and Chinese market’s demands of a healthier and more balanced market, despite that the company’s user base and market influence are still dominantly powerful in the country.

In a move that sounds suspiciously like it was crafted to take the focus off Uber's many, many, many PR problems, the ride-hailing company reckons it'll have flying taxis by 2020.

According to the BBC, Uber is working with flight companies including Embraer and Bell Helicopter to develop electric flying vehicles that'll then be tested in Dallas and Dubai.

Supposedly, the skycabs will take off vertically like helicopters, give out zero emissions and be delightfully quiet.

Oh, and they're eventually going to cost as little as normal Uber car rides.

Anyone else finding this all a bit suspish?

Considering no one's been able to implement drone delivery networks yet – due to aviation rules as much as anything else – or indeed self-driving cars, for which the technology actually exists, it seems a bit unlikely that in three years we'll somehow have sorted literal flying cars.

Most startups launched are destined to fail and it looks like another ambitious project in China has run out of luck.

Inspired by motorcycle ride-hailing services such as Grab, Lude Chuxing or Donkey Ride (our translation) launched an app enabling residents to drive passengers on electric and gas-fueled motorbikes and three-wheeled electric cars known as “sanlunche.”

According to media, reports the app was downloaded more than 5000 times in its first day of operation.

The app known as Didi for bikes was developed by a company in the Chinese city of Nanning and during its short stint, residents could see drivers in bright green vests driving passengers around the city.

However, the local transport authorities did not condone the entrepreneurial spirit of the drivers and Monkey Ride’s services were halted on December 18th due to violations of local transport services rules.

According to regulations, owners of electric motorbikes should apply for registration which includes submitting the drivers’ identity card, vehicle certifications, insurance and other documentation.

Insiders from ofo have confirmed to local media that ofo’s partner and investor DiDi Chuxing sent ofo’s executive chairman, Chief Financial Officer, and other senior executives on a “vacation” in July this year.

A rift between ride-hailing giant DiDi and bike rental mammoth ofo might be the reason behind the event, Bianews has reported.

Tensions began in April when young ofo founder and CEO Dai Wai was reportedly accused of wasting funds because of its lack of management experience and internal management problems.

In July, ofo announced that senior vice president Fu Qiang will become ofo’s new president.

On July 26th, ofo executives were sent away.

There are no specifics about the tensions between the two partners or what the “vacation” means.

Uber is now facing tough questions from Congress over a data breach last year that affected as many as 57 million user and driver accounts.

It was revealed last week that the ride-hailing company paid £75,000 to hackers who accessed the user data in exchange for their silence.

The incident, which occurred more than a year ago and was kept under wraps, has raised concerns about what a responsible disclosure should look like in the wake of a major security breach.

Furthermore, questions linger over whether Uber was acting in the best interest of its users or whether it was mostly concerned about its own image when it paid the hackers to delete the stolen data.

The stolen data, which included email addresses, phone numbers, and driver’s license numbers, was discovered by hackers on an Amazon server, which they accessed using credentials lifted from a private GitHub site used by Uber software engineers.

Although it could be argued that handing over $100,000 to hackers is a small price to pay—the so called “cost of doing business”—there doesn’t seem to be any conceivable way that Uber could’ve ensured that the hackers actually deleted the data after receiving their hush money.
