Photo Critic’s Notebook By CHRIS SUELLENTROP SAN FRANCISCO — The notion of virtual reality has been tantalizing since at least the 1980s, when William Gibson’s novel “Neuromancer” and the holodeck on “Star Trek: The Next Generation” popularized the idea of transporting people into a three-dimensional computerized environment.

Swiss Games at Tokyo Game Show 2013

Diana LaGattuta is vice president of marketing at NativeX. On March 20, we rebranded our company to NativeX, a name that reflects the type of native in-app advertising we provide. As I expected, the evening of our launch, I received a message from a friend who works for a mobile ad technology firm. It went something like this: “Congrats! But you know native doesn’t scale, right?” I’ve spent the past eight years of my career trying to make mobile advertising work. During this search, the mobile industry has looked jut about everywhere for the answer: in carrier-grade media, algorithmic targeting, expensive ads with flashy landing pages for big brands, location awareness, and programmatic media buying platforms.

During this, they’ve churned more standard banners through exchanges, which are bid down to the penny to compensate for puny click-through rates. Nobody likes banner ads Freemium changes everything Nobody wants to pay for apps anymore. E3 2012: Game makers focus on second screens. LOS ANGELES – If the gaming industry agreed on one idea at this week's Electronic Entertainment Expo, it's that playing video games on just one screen is no longer enough. The top three publishers — Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony — each focused on new ways to spread games and other content across several screens at the gaming industry's annual trade show in downtown Los Angeles. While the publishers' systems rely on the same premise, namely using more screens to access more content, each is achieving multi-screen functionality through different means: Microsoft is tapping into existing phones and tablets; Sony is depending on its PlayStation Vita handheld device; and Nintendo is coupling an iPad-like controller with its new Wii U console.

By Tammy Erickson | 12:40 PM April 18, 2012 The cohort I like to call the “Re-Generation” began to take shape around 2008. Individuals at the formative ages of 11 to 13, those born after about 1995, were part of a substantively different world than the one that had shaped 11 to 13 year olds over the preceding fifteen or so years.

In an earlier post, I discussed the impact the Global Financial Crisis had on the formation of this new generation. Technology, of course, has also been a powerful influence on the Re-Generation, so much so that Bill Gates proposed that we call this next wave Generation I, for Internet. Gates has used the term to refer to children born after 1994, describing them as the first generation to grow up with the Internet. With due respect, most who study the generations would say that Generation Y (those born from 1980 to 1995) was our first generation of Digital Natives — unconsciously competent users of both computers and of the Internet.
