Advertising Picture Gloomy

Dec 8, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Key advertising industry forecasters are expecting drops in spending next year, the Wall Street Journal reports. Ad buyer ZenithOptimedia sees U.S. spending falling 6.2% in 2009 to $161 billion and GroupM expects a decline of 3% to $157 billion as the recession takes a toll on the media industry.

  1. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  2. You have definitely made it straightforward for me to become more knowledgeable about this. This blog post was very nicely composed, and it also incorporates a lot of helpful details. I appreciated the professional style of crafting this valuable blog post.
