How does that work, though? If my employer gives me $10k for the purpose of a charitable donation, doesn't that essentially mean that I made (for tax purposes)
-$10000 (tax deduction for charitable donation)
I work in the marketing analytics and attribution space and can confidently speak to this topic. While Social isn't the BEST performer, it doesn't carry with it the dire statement of a "complete lack of results" as you state.
With dependencies on vertical and how the advertising is used in known conjunction with other channels, Social definitely does have an assister effect on those other channels. The problem you may be encountering is relying solely on outdated analysis methods which do not appropriately track credit for known users across the entirety of their path to purchase or you're simply just looking at in effective ad buying behavior resulting in poor ROAS.
Done right, Social is definitely valuable for relatively low cost when compared to the much larger channels (based on investment) and can absolutely jack up your return on those other channels as an assister but definitely is not going to be a 1:1 return as the only advertising channel you should leverage if you are hoping for conversion.
Nice! Thank you much.
Traffic in China is insane. Don't drive there.
But many of their traffic lights count down - which I think is awesome.
What I hope this is is the ability to go running and have your smart watch act as your phone. Get in your car and have the car stereo act as a phone. Then switch it back to the mobile phone device. That's something GV does not do or if it does it requires wifi.
My prius seamlessly transfers my [google voice] iphone calls to and from my phone as I'm starting/stopping the car. It just works.
I've never tried to transfer calls between other devcies - though I feel like it's supposed to work - as long as all those devices support gvoice.
The way I understand this to work is that each device's IMEI can be added to the pool for a particular number and you can select on the fly which device(s) are active. In addition they are offering that you can have multiple numbers and multiple IMEI's pooled between them.
The only thing surprising about this is why, in 2017, this hasn't happened sooner.
Because competition vs. standards.
Binary drivers break, but a lot of semi-recent and newer cards are actually supported by the in-kernel driver which should not break in most cases (usually the drivers breakage = won't build with current kernel or xorg).
So while nVidia is working on Solaris and FreeBSD, their newest driver won't work for recent cards on recent kernels. Meanwhile their old cards get stuck without support in their problem, leaving you with nouveau (which is kinda like having a procotological exam with a glove dipped in wasabi).
I weighed heavily between both cards, and went with AMD since the OPEN SOURCE drivers have been given a *lot* of support by AMD, and work nicely without any third-party binary bullshit needed.
They say it's all fixed, but the fact that they rolled out with such a fairly obvious yet serious bug - especially after recently professing a strong focus on security - doesn't exactly fill my heart with confidence and trust.
Yeaaaaah, you might want to hold off on signing up for that just yet.
Yup. Love it.
Other than it being free, email/text integration, spam call filtering, and a bunch of stuff like that - it does sound similar.
The one thing I don't like about gvoice is that it won't let me talk on my iPad. I rather suspect that's because of Apple, though - not google. So I'll be interested to see if TMobile supports ipad calling/talking.
Not seeing pricing or a place to buy it. Seems a bit limited in functionality compared to Pebble, but who knows maybe one of these will move to fill the void now that there's demand.
