Mobile Minute: Data Created By 60 Seconds of Smartphone Use

first_imgWhy IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Tags:#advertising#mobile#web We swim in a world full of data. Every time we play a mobile game and swipe a piece of fruit, shoot a bad guy, fling a furious fowl at a pen of swine or tap an ad, data is being created. Over the days and weeks that data adds up to the point where we can break it down into larger trends and take a full look at the landscape that has been created.That is the macrocosm view. What about the microcosm? How much data are we producing per minute? We found an old infographic from mobile advertising company Mobclix that shows just just how much data we are creating each minute when using our mobile devices. Check it out below.I have a friend that is obsessed with Fruit Ninja. His high score is somewhere near 830, which is apparently really high. Not long ago, I handed him a Kindle Fire and he went to town, cutting fruit at a vicious pace that left others in awe of his super-ninja powers. In one minute-long game, my friend contributes about 0.00332% of fruit sliced in Fruit Ninja.In that minute, 4,111 ads were clicked in Mobclix’s network. That translates to 400,710 ad requests. The click-through rate of mobile ads does not appear to be very healthy. Those clicks amount to $2,340 dollars spent by advertisers in the U.S. per minute. App downloads have been growing exponentially in the last few months. In October the App Store saw 23,148 downloads per minute. Check out the infographic below.

Joanna Krupa Says No To Fur Farming In Poland

first_imgJoanna Krupa has teamed with PETA to write to Polish prime minister Beata Szydło, urging her to ban fur farming in Poland.“Today, I would like to ask the government and all members of the Sejm to take a stand by advocating a ban on fur farming in Poland,” she wrote. “I was shocked to hear from my friends at PETA that Poland has become one of the biggest players in this cruel business in recent years, with nearly 11 million minks, foxes and raccoon dogs killed every year only for their fur.”Poland is the second largest fur farming country in Europe, second only to Denmark.

”Cannibalism, injuries, illness, lack of veterinary care, aggression and stereotypical types of behaviour were some of the systemic problems observed on Polish fur farms during investigations by Otwarte Klatki,” she wrote. “Social, intelligent and curious animals such as foxes, minks and raccoon dogs should not be confined, gassed, shot or electrocuted for luxury fashion.“To stop this unnecessary cruelty, fur farming must be banned, as it already has been in many countries, including Austria, Croatia, Slovenia and the United Kingdom. Fox farming is banned in Denmark and the Netherlands.“According to a 2014 public opinion poll by the Homo Homini polling institute, 55 per cent of the people in Poland already support a ban on fur farms. I would like to ask you to initiate a bill to ban fur farming in order to save the lives of millions of animals in the near future.”last_img read more
