HUMOR CRISIS

No es una cuestión de broma, porque hay mucha gente pasándolo mal cada día. Pero, inevitablemente, cuando un tema como la actual crisis económica acaba ocupando todas las conversaciones y las portadas de los medios durante cinco años, los humoristas terminan aplicando su bisturí más irónico para sacar de ella las carcajadas que todos necesitamos. Y cinco años de crisis dan para muchos chistes. En el Reino Unido, ya en 2008, agudos expertos trataron de explicar lo que estaba pasando….

HTC estrena campaña global realizada en caída libre

El fotógrafo seleccionado fue Nick Jojola, que realizó un reportaje mientras descendía a 203 km por hora. La protagonista del spot fue la campeona mundial de caída libre Roberta Mancino y el director escogido Norman Kent, un director cinematográfico especializado en paracaidismo. El spot que fue grabado durante el atardecer y amanecer en Arizona. El principal reto de los 35 saltos efectuados para el spot fue conseguir fotos de alta calidad.

Google: 62 Percent Of Valentine’s Day Restaurant Searches Were Mobile

Google is releasing some data on mobile search and Valentine’s Day. The company said, “A whopping 62 percent of total searches for popular national chain restaurants [in the US] on Valentine’s Day occurred on high end mobile devices or tablets.”

One more time: 62 percent of all US-based national chain restaurant queries were coming from mobile devices.

Google focused on national restaurant chains because it could disambiguate and identify them as such. It could well be that the 62 percent figure extends across the entire restaurant category.

Google focused on national restaurant chains because it could disambiguate and identify them as such. It could well be that the 62 percent figure extends across the entire restaurant category.

Restaurant chain searches leading up to Valentine’s Day

Google told me that it sometimes can’t tell what’s a restaurant search and what’s not. For example, someone searching for “radicchio” or “papaya” might be looking for a restaurant, recipes or nutrition facts. By contrast, Google knows for sure that Morton’s or McCormick & Schmick are restaurants.

Google also reported last-minute searches for flower-related terms grew 227 percent during the same week leading up to Valentine’s Day. On the day itself “Consumers were 560% more likely to click to make a call week over week.  And mobile clicks to get directions increased 514% over the same period as people were scrambling to find a nearby florist.”

Google also graphed click to call actions hour by hour on V-Day itself (w/in California), with an early peak at 8:30 am(ish) and another one during the lunch hour. Leer más “Google: 62 Percent Of Valentine’s Day Restaurant Searches Were Mobile”
