  • Smartphones Have Big Quarter, Bigger iPhone 6 Anticipation Grows

    Data from research firm Counterpoint (via AppleInsider) asserts that smartphones constituted 87 percent of all U.S. handset “shipments” in the first quarter.

A Yelp spokesperson tells us that the program will eventually expand to all users, […]

  • Beyond Sentiment Analysis: Canvs Takes Instant Social Temperature Of TV Shows

    Judging the success of a TV show used to be a relatively simple matter. Nielsen crunched the viewership numbers and shows survived and died based on the ratings.
