From Marketing Land:

  • New Gmail Inbox Features Ads That Look Like Emails, Above Promotional Email Subscriptions If you’ve converted to the new Gmail inbox, you may have noticed in-line ads that resemble regular emails at the top of your Promotions tab. These new native-style ads function as paid-for-placement email messages, and essentially circumvent standard email marketing practices. The ads do have a shaded background and ad symbol to differentiate them from [...]
  • Apple Buys Locationary To Clean Up The Location Data Mess Reported earlier by AllThingsD, Apple has acquired Toronto-based location-data management startup Locationary. Apple was seeking both the company’s data management capabilities and the expertise of CEO Grant Ritchie and his team. The application of the technology is relatively straightforward: it’s an investment in making Apple Maps and its local data much better. In my experience, [...]
  • Picture This: Facebook Pages Get The Ability To Comment With Photos Facebook users have had the ability to comment with photos for just about one month now. Now Pages will have the same ability to comment with imagery. Facebook Pages will now see a camera icon to the right when entering a comment. The camera icon will prompt that the user uploads an image file from [...]

  • Why You Should Be Doing Mobile Marketing, If You Aren’t Already It doesn’t seem so long ago that we were introduced to the magical world of the Internet.

  • Amazon Beats Pinterest In Fight Over .Pin Domain Amazon has beaten Pinterest in a battle over .pin, one of the many new generic top-level domains (gTLDs) that are in the process of joining existing domains like .com, .net and .org. In a decision issued this week, a World Intellectual Property Organization mediator rejected Pinterest’s objection to Amazon’s application to own .pin. Pinterest filed [...]
  • Yahoo Ranks No. 16 On Top 25 Companies For Work-Life Balance, Google Fails to Make List Job seekers looking for more of a work-life balance in their next career may want to avoid positions with Facebook, Google and Apple. The online jobs and career community website Glassdoor has released its 2013 Top 25 Companies for Work-Life Balance report, and not one of the three leading tech giants made the list. After [...]
  • Microsoft Also Misses On $19.9 Billion In Quarterly Revenue A little while ago, Google disappointed investors by missing bullish revenue estimates. Microsoft also did so when it reported fiscal quarter and full-year earnings today. Redmond’s overall revenue for the quarter was a massive $19.9 billion. Yet analysts had anticipated just under a billion more. Net income was $6.07 billion. The company also took a [...]
  • The Android Stats From The Google Earnings Call Google announced Q2 revenues earlier this afternoon. In his prepared remarks CEO Larry Page threw out a bunch of stats about Android.
