News Flash! Tablets Are Not Smartphones

first_imgWhat it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Even outside the home, Forrester’s data reveal that tablet usage is concentrated in “fixed” locations. These include coffee shops, airports and hotels.Whereas smartphones are highly personal devices, used mostly “on-the-go” and in short “snackable” sessions, tablets are more likely to be shared with others inside the home. Tablets are also used for longer stretches of time. Forrester’s data also show that tablet users are wealthier and better educated than typical smartphone users. In addition, tablet users are more likely to discuss their opinions of products on social media and other online services.Forrester’s research also reveals the versatility of these devices. Reading, email, watching video, playing games and taking pictures are all common activities. Across their 15 primary activity categories, browsing the web was most common – undertaken by 68% of individuals polled in Forrester’s survey – and note-taking was least common, though still undertaken by a respectable 26% of respondents. At present, there is no one specific task driving people to purchase a tablet.Though the market is relatively new, the report also suggests that users will embrace tablets for controlling numerous home-based technologies – such as entertainment systems, energy monitoring and more. Tablets As Second ScreensTablets are preferred over smartphones as the “second screen” – i.e., as something else to look at while the TV is on. And it turns out that people also use tablets and smartphones differently as second screens. According to Forrester’s data, web browsing, product research and watching videos online are all more likely to be tablet-based second-screen activities. Social networking and chatting while watching television, however, are the province of the smartphone.This raises an intriguing possibility: Tablets might actually have a big impact television advertising. As a second screen, tablets offer advertisers new possibilities for integrating their marketing efforts across seemingly disparate media. Some app makers are already jumping on this bandwagon.For instance, Shazam just updated its “what’s that song” app to tag and identify live TV events by “listening” to them. On one hand, that lets the app provide more information about the show or sports game you’re watching, including links to related information. On the other, though, the app will also tag the commercials, potentially opening up a new way for advertisers to reach you through the tablet as well as the big screen.It’s not all about play, either. The Forrester study found the people actually report using tablets for “work” surprisingly often. A full 58% of surveyed users report spending an average of 2.5 hours per day on their tablets for work from home. There is, of course, a possibility of responder bias; some people might be inclined to say they’re working on their tablets even if they’re not.Assuming those numbers are solid, though, that finding could provide an opening for makers of apps and even tablet hardware focused on personal productivity. Wait, did someone just say… Microsoft? brian s hall Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement You probably already knew this, but a new report from Forrester wants to emphasize this seemingly obvious point: Tablets are not simply larger touchscreen smartphones. There are significant difference in where people use them, how they use them and for how long – all of which have big implications for app developers, marketers, tablet makers and a lot of other folks.As the table market continues its white-hot growth – nearly 50 million tablets were sold last quarter alone – these differences will force  both innovation and disruption in publishing, advertising, retail, gaming and work, as people optimize apps, media and services specifically for tablet use.Tablet Usage: The Little Differences The majority of tablet users use their gadgets primarily in the living room and bedroom of their homes. This is true even for tablets with cellular connectivity, not just Wi-Fi.  The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Tags:#iPad#microsoft surface#tablet Related Posts last_img read more

Vaccines have no link to autism study of 657000 children finds

first_img Sci-Tech The Art of Science draws beauty from medical research Related stories In conclusion, the Danish team ended with a resolute statement in support of the idea that “MMR vaccination does not increase the risk for autism, does not trigger autism in susceptible children, and is not associated with clustering of autism cases after vaccination.” The study, published in the Annals of Internal Medicine on March 5, was funded by the Novo Nordisk Foundation and the Danish Ministry of Health. In recent years, the anti-vax movement has gathered steam, resulting in a reluctance among some parents to get their children vaccinated. This social shift recently caused the World Health Organization to label “vaccine hesitancy” one of the biggest threats to global health in 2019. Measles cases continue to rise, with the WHO stating that the global spike is the result of “gaps in vaccination coverage.”In 2018, there was an almost 50 percent increase in worldwide measles cases and approximately 136,000 deaths. And the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have already reported 206 cases of measles in just two months, after a total of 372 cases were reported in 2018. Will this new, comprehensive data set be enough to sway those on the anti-vaccine side? Probably not. A number of studies over the last decade have looked at various vaccines, including those that contain mercury-based thimerosal, and found no association between autism and vaccines — a handful of research papers suggest otherwise, but the idea largely survives thanks to a fraudulent paper from 1998, the wilds of social media and a pervasive sense of mistrust. 13 Photos It only hurts for a second. Karl Tapales/Getty Images The vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella doesn’t cause autism, according to a massive, new study.  It’s yet another study that unravels any tie between vaccines and the developmental disability. A link between autism and the MMR vaccine has long been erroneously suggested, due to a controversial paper published in prestigious journal The Lancet over 20 years ago. Read more: How to track the 2019 measles outbreakAlthough the author of that paper, Andrew Wakefield, has been discredited and the original paper retracted, the myth that vaccines cause autism persists, even though mounting scientific evidence suggests otherwise. Today, if you wander too deep into the forest of social media, you’ll eventually be lost in arguments and counterarguments from a vocal minority arguing that vaccines are responsible for the disease.  Not so, shows the new study, conducted by a team of researchers with the Statens Serum Institut in Denmark. Their study followed childbirths in Denmark from 1999 to Dec. 31, 2010, and then followed up with the children from 1 year old until the study was completed in 2013. Using the Danish health registry allowed the researchers to compare a cohort of vaccinated children against unvaccinated children, definitively showing that those who received the MMR vaccine weren’t at a higher risk of autism. Examining 5,025,754 person-years of follow-up data, the researchers found 6,517 children who were diagnosed with autism. The team also showed that even those children considered more susceptible to the condition due to family history and other risk factors were not at higher risk of the disease.
