The Data of it All

08/24/2015 09:18 pm

For our own part, our metered panels of users that number into the millions worldwide, as well as an extensive network of tagged web, video and app entities, generate vast quantities of audience and consumption information that grows in scope and scale with every passing month. To give some sense of perspective, if a megabyte of data were to be represented by a spoonful of sand, comScore would currently store the equivalent of a stretch of beach 25 miles long, 30 metres wide and a foot deep. And we expect this to double in the next year.

Are Smartphones the Swiss Army Knife of the Millennial Generation?

07/29/2015 08:47 am

Think about your daily life for a minute: When was the last time you wrote down your plans in a paper calendar? Do you still use that radio alarm clock sitting by your bed? Do you still rely on that old MP3 player to listen to your music? Do you print out directions or refer to a paper map when traveling to an unfamiliar destination? Chances are that you used to practice most of these behaviors regularly, but have since gradually consolidated them into your smartphone. Old habits certainly die hard, but perhaps the exception to this rule is when something unmistakably more convenient comes along that gives you the same (or better) functionality as the old way of doing things.
