While it’s no question that Alphabet has advertising in the bag, the company is hemorrhaging funds in a blanket category described as “Other Bets.” #News #Alphabet #Google
On the whole, Google’s parent company is on the rise. Alphabet is reporting a 21 percent revenue growth year on year, and most of that comes from the boons of advertising. While it’s no question that the information king has advertising in the bag, the company is nevertheless hemorrhaging funds in a blanket category described as “Other Bets.”So what exactly is Other Bets? Well, mostly these include moonshot projects, a number of initiatives that ...

Other bets includes Google Fiber. To build the infrastructure it cost tons of money because putting new fiber optic cables under ground in large cities doesn't come cheap. Everyone wants high speed internet for residential and commerial properties but fiber internet is highly expensive. We have some fiber optic cable in Winter Haven, Florida but Frontier Fios isn't connected nor any communication has connected to it because it city owned fiber. When it comes to internet it is still to monoplies your local phone co. or cable co. You get high speed internet with satellite co. But still they don't compete in market share in large cities and where residents live in rental units.

In a new report on the global gaming industry, a stagnating market is expected to be revitalized by location-based and augmented reality games. #News #games #Gaming

Then imagine some revolutionary new phone comes along that miraculously kick-starts the market, sending it skyrocketing once again. While that might be a difficult future to imagine, we may have just witnessed something similar in the games industry thanks to Pokémon GO.In a new report from market analysts Frost & Sullivan, Pokém...

+shalin saini I'm pretty sure the S6 will not be getting the Vulkan API...In fact, I don't think it's possible to even add it in this late in the S6's life.

We take a look at some of the many reasons why the ZTE Axon 7 is one of the best Android smartphones you can currently buy. #News #ZTE #ZTEAxon7
Over the past few years, we've been seeing a growing number of high quality but affordable smartphones being released. While many have hoped, or outright claimed, to be flagship killers, they have tended to fall short of the flagship competition in some respects. The great news is that this is slowly changing as well, and there are a few smartphones out there that are largely indistinguishable from the expensive flagships, but offer far more bang...
