Google Shows that Kenyans Are Starting to Go Back to Work | Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Sourced from The African Report.

In April, Kenyans were almost always at home after the COVID-19 crisis hit the country, and the nationwide lockdown was initiated. This is according to a report from Google which noted a significant decrease in the number of people visiting workplaces, parks and recreational areas. Now, a similar report from Google is showing that Kenyans have started to steadily return to work.
Kenyans have been under lockdown for the last few months, with a recent extension of another 30 days added to keep coronavirus infection levels low. Now, thanks to Google’s smartphone tracking software, we can see that a lot more Kenyans are up and about.
These reports show how visits and length of stay at different places change compared to a baseline. According to the report, Kenyans are now going back to work. Here’s what the movement looked like in March.
Sourced from Gadgets Africa.
There was a significant drop in movement across the country. Transit stations recorded a -39% drop and workplaces a -22% drop. The focus was also on the increase of people who were now staying at home.

In June there was a significant increase. The above is a sample of movement on 7 June. Note the large increase for mobility trends for places of work.

Mobility trends for 12 June show further increases in places of residence and in public transport but a large decrease in the movement for places of work. This may be because of the new extension placed on the country’s lockdown. There is an overall increase, however, of people going to work since March.
The same kind of increase is seen where people are visiting more restaurants and shopping centres. According to Google, things seem to be going back to normal in Kenya. However, in the same period, the country has recorded more cases with over 2427 active cases currently.
Google’s community mobility reports
Anyone can view mobility statistics from their home country via Google’s Community Mobility reports.

Google covers 131 countries. In many locations, users can search for more regional data, examining reports for individual states, provinces, and counties.
Gadgets Africa confirms that Google chose PDFs over web pages because they could be more easily downloaded and shared with workers in the field in order to understand vital statistics in the fight against COVID-19.

Red alert – are we starting to ‘take back control’ of words?- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Creative advertising lecturer Andrew Boulton gives a copywriter’s view of the UK’s confusing corona communication.
In possibly the slenderest portion of silver lining since David Brent landed that promotion, at least the coronavirus has given us a way to demand more from words.
The government’s new 3-step slogan – Stay Alert. Control The Virus. Save Lives – has attracted, understandably, some ridicule. Imagine that Nike had deposited ‘Just Do It’ in the home for decrepit athletes and unveiled ‘Perhaps Attempt Something’ and we would be at a comparable level of ‘huh?’
The vagueness – some might say, meaninglessness – of the new slogan has at least provided a mass writer’s prompt for more eloquent and effective observations. Marina Hyde in The Guardian suggested the slogan ‘reads like it was produced by an off-brand smartphone left running overnight in a Ukrainian bot farm’ – a sequence of words that will be dancing through my mind on those long night-watches in the guard tower, looking out for any virulent microbes tunnelling under the fence.
The slogan – as a human being in search of some small reassurance and a copywriter who would have invoices torn up if I’d presented such an effort – left me miserable. But the loud, collective challenge that it inspired gave me hope that we are, at last, inspecting – and rejecting – words without value. Even when they come from our, sigh, leaders.
We have been, undoubtedly, slow off the mark. George Orwell has been asking us to be angrier at political obfuscation for a long time. In his essay Politics and The English Language he says:

“The great enemy of clear language is insincerity. When there is a gap between one’s real and one’s declared aims one turns, as it were, instinctively to long words and exhausted idioms, like a cuttlefish spurting out ink.”

Even the most generous interpretation of the new slogan would find it hard to detect sincerity, or indeed aims. In fact, all there seems to be is fishy ink.
For any lover of words, the last few years in British and American politics have been disconcerting. Some of us were seduced by an impossible promise painted on a bus. Others worshipped a pithy hat and failed to notice the self-serving billionaire sitting beneath it.
In fact, for a while it seemed as if politicians could be as lazy and empty with their words as they liked – there would be no murmur of dissent from us.
Edward Bernays, in the excellent book Propaganda had this to say on the difference between what we read and what we think:

“Universal literacy was supposed to educate the common man to control his environment. Once he could read and write he would have a mind fit to rule. So ran the democratic doctrine. But instead of a mind, universal literacy has given him rubber stamps, rubber stamps inked with advertising slogans, with editorials, with published scientific data, with the trivialities of the tabloids and the platitudes of history, but quite innocent of original thought.”

The volume and variety of this new rebellion against wilfully misleading communication, at least gives us hope that original thought can indeed be poked into action, if a stick is pointy enough and the pointer unreliable enough.
The excuse, if not the defence, is that Westminster operates within a bubble. In fact, Isabel Hardman, in Why We Get The Wrong Politicians, defines this Westminster bubble as:

“An insular community in which insignificant things seem enormous and the things that matter to everyone else are ignored.”

In advertising, and the creative industries as a whole, we’re often guilty of thinking within our own bubble – but I feel as if creatives are more willing to squeeze themselves through the membrane every once in a while, if only to remind ourselves of who we actually need to like and understand what we write.
The clamour may well make this strange and shadowy slogan slip quietly away – shamelessly replaced in a week or two with something the think tank has thinked longer and harder about.
It will not, I’m sure, instantly persuade our politicians to be clearer and more careful with their words. Yet if this is the case then the least we can do is be perfectly clear about what we think about it. I think you’ll find we’ve had quite enough of cuttlefish.

China’s new normal: how brands are starting to bounce back from coronavirus- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

The social and economic reality of the global coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic is only starting to really hit home for many but over the weekend China started to lift its social restrictions as the number of new locally transmitted cases slowed.
It is still early days, even for China, as to whether life will be entirely back to normal, with some sceptical that a push to economic normality is hasty. Even with social distancing being lifted, two-months in lock-down could mean that consumer behaviours have changed and a new, more digital, normal is left in place.
As such major brands and technology firms in China are starting to launch major efforts to re-boost the economy and help brands get in front of consumers once again.
Shanghai Fashion Week (SHFW) is due to start today but instead of going ahead with events, the shows will be live-streamed to a wider audience via a partnership with Alibaba’s Tmall and Taobao live. The event will show more than 150 brands, including Diane von Furstenberg and rising Chinese independent designers such as Shushu/Tong and Angel Chen, between 24-30 March 2020.
The partnership aims to help independent designers and brands swap out more traditional means of communicating with audiences, for example, press conferences or shows, which would have been the route to market before the virus hit. Alibaba is using the partnership to promote a new ‘suite’ of products that allow brands to fully digitise this process.
Mike Hu, general manager of Tmall Fashion and FMCG at Alibaba, said: “We have integrated some of Alibaba’s most advanced technologies to bring a new and elevated experience to consumers. This partnership with SHFW allows us to leverage our experience in digitizing brick-and-mortar retail stores and explore a new format for brand and product launches, bringing together technologies like live-streaming, short-form videos, DingTalk and Tmall Flagship Store 2.0 in a full-chain solution,” he added.
Elsewhere, rival China e-commerce platform JD.com has announced a raft of initiatives and budgets towards helping boost activity for brands again in terms of marketing and promotion in China.
Earlier this month, JD.com announced ‘Spring Raindrop Plan’, which will allocate RMB 1.5 billion worth of its resources to brands that were heavily impacted by Covid-19. It said it would be offering flash sales, live streaming, coupons, PLUS membership and content marketing to support its merchants. Much like Alibaba, JD.com has also opened up its omnichannel services to help brick-and-morter stores get online.
This week, in addition to the ‘Spring Raindrop Plan’, JD.com announced a collaboration with brands to release RMB1.5 billion worth of promotional coupons to consumers in China. The idea is that the coupons will help increase demand and resume sales volumes at a quicker pace.
A spokesperson for the brand said in the announcement, “The new initiative also demonstrates that the fight against Covid-19 has entered a new stage. As people recover from the epidemic, the need to increase consumer demand to support China’s domestic economy has come to light.”
In terms of travel, travel data co-op Adara has found that the number of searches relating to people looking to travel to China has increased after a severe dip after the Coronavirus started to spread.
According to Adara, in the past two weeks, it has seen an uptick in the number of searchers. Global unique searchers were up 29% for the week of 8 March 2020, compared to the week of 1 March 2020. It said actual flight bookings are also increasing but at a slower rate. In terms of people travelling from China elsewhere, the numbers of booking aren’t yet increasing but Adara has seen a small uptick in the number of flight searches from Chinese travellers.
Countries that are now facing unprecedented levels of disruption as they self-isolate or go into lockdowns, such as the United States and the United Kingdom, will be looking to the example set in China as a beacon of hope for what’s waiting on the other side.
If one thing seems clear from China’s new normal, it is that digital technology has forced a larger place in people’s lives, with live-streaming and e-commerce the new normal.

Samsung unveils Galaxy S20 5G lineup with new camera tech, AI, security, and more starting at $1,000 – Blog – 10 minute

What just happened? Samsung officially introduced its Galaxy S20 line of phones at its Unpacked keynote on Tuesday. The Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra are all 5G compatible with some of the newest technology to improve photos, movies, and games.
The Korean tech titan is particularly proud of the new camera architecture in its Galaxy S20 series, which sports some impressive features. The flagships have some of Samsung’s biggest image sensors yet. The S20 and S20+ sport a 64MP camera, while the S20 Ultra bumps resolution to 108MP. The larger sensors take in more light and improve photo quality in dim environments.
The Ultra can also switch between 108MP and 12MP using a technology Samsung calls “nona-binning.” This innovation takes nine pixels and combines them into one. It does this at the sensor level rather than through software processing.
Specs for the base model Galaxy S20. Check out S20+ and S20 Ultra at Samsung’s website.
Coupled with a new imaging AI, the cameras have incredible zoom capabilities that combine optical and digital zoom functions. Samsung touts a 30x zoom on the Galaxy S20 and S20+ and a 100x on the Ultra. The hybrid zoom’s AI uses multi-image processing to reduce resolution loss at higher magnification levels. Additionally, the new sensors are capable of capturing video at up to 8K resolution, while the AI uses motion analysis to provide stabilization to even out the bumps when capturing video.
Taking advantage of the S20’s 5G speeds, Samsung has partnered with YouTube so that users can upload their 8K videos directly to their channel from the device. The company is also banking on 5G to provide other benefits, including improved video chat with up to eight contacts via Google Duo, a better Netflix experience, and “console-style” mobile gaming.

Although it did not mention it specifically, It sounds like Samsung is positioning its S20 line to take advantage of 5G to bring cloud gaming to the device. The S20’s 5G capabilities should provide ample throughput and processing for a stable experience on platforms like Stadia. Aside from game streaming, Samsung said that Microsoft will be launching its mobile racing game Forza Street on the Galaxy Store later this spring.
The new flagships will also have new security features powered by the Knox platform.
“The most secure device Samsung has ever made, the Galaxy S20 is protected by Knox—the industry-leading mobile security platform that protects the device from the chip level through to the software level,” says Samsung.

The company also says that the S20 has a new “secure processor” that prevents hardware-based attacks.
The new Galaxy phones support fast charging as well. The S20 and S20+ come equipped with a 25W charger, while the S20 Ultra has 45W “Super Fast” charging.
There are a variety of models to choose from in the line. The S20 is limited to 128GB of storage, but the S20+ and Ultra come in 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB models. The standard color for all models is Cosmic Grey. Other color choices include Cloud Pink (S20), Cloud Blue (S20 and S20+), and Cosmic Black (S20+ and Ultra).
Customers can pre-order a Galaxy S20 starting today with shipments going out on March 6. The S20 starts at $1,000, the S20+ is $1,200, and the Ultra will sell for $1,400. For a limited time Samsung is offering up to $600 off with qualifying trade-ins.

Facebook’s quarterly results are impressive, but investors are starting to doubt its future prospects – Blog – 10 minute

The big picture: Facebook had a great quarter, but fixing some of its security and privacy issues incurred a 51 percent increase in its cost of business, which has investors worried this may just be the start. The latest antitrust and privacy issues have started to take a toll on the company, so the future looks a little less bright ahead.
Facebook’s latest quarterly earnings are out, and it looks like the company had a very impressive 2019. However, investors don’t seem to be sharing the enthusiasm as the stock fell almost 8 percent in after-hours trading, effectively evaporating $50+ billion from its market value.
The social giant raked in almost $71 billion in revenue in 2019, and as expected, 98.5 percent of that came from advertising. As CEO Mark Zuckerberg indicated during the investor call, Facebook will maintain its ad-supported model, so that percentage won’t change much in the foreseeable future.
For the three months ending in December 2019, Facebook saw a little over $21 billion in revenue, which is a strong 25 percent increase year-over-year. According to COO Sheryl Sandberg, the company added one million advertisers to its network, for a total of 7 million advertisers big and small as of October 2019.

This all sounds good until you stumble upon the fact that Facebook’s costs and expenses increased by 51 percent when compared to 2018, which might explain why investors aren’t exactly happy about the report. On a positive note, these added expenses covered privacy and security upgrades, which means the social giant has cut into its operating margin for some much needed improvements for end users.
With an average revenue per user sitting at a record $8.52, you’d think the company has little to worry about, but it’s quite the contrary. Facebook is already squeezing as much revenue as it can from advertising to its 2.9 billion users, and it’s taking a huge risk on selling ad space to Chinese companies.
To put things in perspective, the company is stuck between regulators scrutinizing its business practices, critics slamming its political ad policies, and trying to launch Libra, it own cryptocurrency. So far it’s juggling a few digital properties that have seen very little success such as Facebook Dating and Lasso, which in theory were meant to kill Tinder and TikTok.
The path ahead is difficult, but Facebook does have a few places where it can do more to improve its bottom line. Notable examples are Oculus – which operates in the VR market that is still waiting for its big moment – and Facebook Pay, which allows people to use the company’s messaging apps to send and receive money. But more importantly, the social giant has to regain the trust of its users after repeated failure to ensure their privacy and security.

Apple reportedly starting mass production of iPhone SE 2 / iPhone 9 next month, launching in March – Blog – 10 minute

Why it matters: Are you after a brand-new iPhone but don’t want to pay the high prices? A low-cost Apple handset could be here soon. According to a new report, the company is expected to put the iPhone SE 2, which could be called the iPhone 9, into mass production as soon as next month.
Bloomberg, citing people familiar with the plan, writes that production of the iPhone will be split between Foxconn, Pegatron, and Winstron, and the firm will officially unveil the device “as early as March.”
Earlier this month, we heard that Apple was finally preparing a successor to its popular iPhone SE. Rather than using the iPhone SE 2 name, it could be called the iPhone 9— Cupertino jumped from the iPhone 8 to the iPhone X, so the 9 moniker hasn’t been taken.

The iPhone SE – four inches of fun
Bloomberg writes that the new iPhone will look very similar to the iPhone 8, with its top and bottom bezels, 4.7-inch LCD, and single rear camera, but it will feature the same A13 processor found in the iPhone 11. It will have Touch ID, rather than Face ID facial recognition.
Renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that the iPhone SE 2/iPhone 9 could have a starting price of just $399, which is even cheaper than the $449 iPhone 8 (64GB) Apple sells. Expect the latter device to be discontinued once the new handset arrives.
It’s also been rumored that Apple will release a second, larger iPhone SE 2/iPhone 9. This “Plus” model is supposed to arrive several months after the standard version, either at the same time as the iPhone 12 lineup or in 2021.

John Lewis marketing boss Paula Nickolds departs before starting- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Paula Nickolds has exited the John Lewis Partnership just weeks before she was due to start as the first joint head of brand for John Lewis and Waitrose.
The plan for Nickolds, a veteran of the high street retailer having joined in 1995 and risen to become its first ever female managing director, was announced in October as part of a major restructure intended to get it back on solid footing.
It came as the company suffered a pre-tax loss amounting to nearly £26m in the six months to 27 July, compared with a profit of £800,000 in the same period a year before.
Under chairman Charlie Mayfield’s vision to unite John Lewis and Waitrose with a simplified management structure, Nickolds was due to become executive director of brand in February, a role which would see her head up marketing, service and digital innovation.
However, it has now been announced that she will instead leave the department store chain that month after it suffered a further fall in profits.
“After some reflection on the responsibilities of her proposed new role, we have decided together that the implementation of the future partnership structure in February is the right time for her to move on,” the company said.
What this means for the future of its marketing division is unclear. At the time of the restructure announcement, representatives declined to comment on how Craig Inglis and Martin George, who hold responsibility for brand and marketing for John Lewis and Waitrose respectively under the ‘customer director’ titles, would be impacted by Nickolds’ new role.
Anusha Couttigane, principal fashion analyst at Kantar, said that whoever takes the lead will need to rethink its long-running, and arguably tired, festive advertising strategy which has relied on blockbuster, tear-jerker creative to encourage shoppers into stores.
“John Lewis needs to continue evolving its digital marketing efforts. While the company’s Christmas mascot, the accident-prone dragon Excitable Edgar, was warmly received, the debut of the brand’s Christmas advert is simply not the event it once was,” Couttigane added.
“In the digital age of streaming and on-the-go entertainment, gone are the days of a prime-time TV debut going viral (historically during Downton Abbey or some other national favourite). The retailer needs to ensure it is positioning itself to reach its biggest opportunity customers through the right channels.”
But immediate thoughts have turned to quick recovery from the crucial Christmas period after sales fell by 1.8%. Bosses at the chain are considering whether to axe the partnership bonus payment to staff for the first time in 67 years.
“Overall, the future of the John Lewis Partnership remains uncertain, with the business going through a complete structural overhaul,” continued Couttigane.

Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey are starting a weekly podcast about The Office – gpgmail


Oh, be still my heart.

It’s not The Office reunion special/season/complete series everyone wants, but it’ll do for now: Jenna Fischer (Pam) and Angela Kinsey (… Angela) are setting up to release a podcast together.

Called “Office Ladies” (though I hope “Party Planning Committee” was at least in the running), they’re going to rewatch the show and talk about one episode each week.

It’ll be produced by the podcast hub/app Stitcher, but the company says it’ll also be on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and “anywhere podcasts are available.”

Despite having wrapped up in 2013, The Office is wildly popular right now. Much of this popularity seems to stem from it being available (and repeatedly bingeable) on Netflix, where it’s reportedly the service’s most watched show. This wave of popularity, swirled together with the stars’ own nostalgia from rewatching episodes they shot roughly a decade ago, seems like a setup for a pretty solid podcast.

The first podcast is set to ship on October 16th of this year. Alas, at one episode per week, that’ll only let them get through about a quarter of the series’ 201 episodes before it leaves Netflix in 2021 for whatever NBC’s streaming thing is going to be called.

If they’re having any of their co-stars make guest appearances, none have been announced yet — but if so, Jenna and Angela, just remember: Creed might need some editing.

Google Assistant, navigation and apps coming to GM vehicles starting in 2021 – gpgmail


GM is turning to Google to provide in-vehicle voice, navigation and other apps in its Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC vehicles starting in 2021.

GM began shipping vehicles with Google Android Automotive OS in 2017, starting with the Cadillac CTS and expanding to other brands. Android Automotive OS shouldn’t be confused with Android Auto, which is a secondary interface that lies on top of an operating system. Android Automotive OS is modeled after its open-source mobile operating system that runs on Linux. But instead of running smartphones and tablets, Google modified it so it could be used in cars.

Now, GM is taking the additional step of embedding the Google services that so many people already use through their phones and smart speakers. GM was convinced by its own customer research to bring Google into its cars, Santiago Chamorro, GM’s vice president for global connected customer experience, told gpgmail.

Google voice, navigation and apps found in the Google Play Store will be in compatible GM brands starting in 2021. Broad deployment across all GM brands is expected to occur in the years following.

Future GM infotainments, powered by Android, will have a built-in Google Assistant that drivers can use to make calls, text, play a radio station, change the climate in the car or close the garage door, if they have rhe requisite connected smart home device. The Google Assistant integration will continue to evolve over time, so that drivers in the future will be able to simply use their voice to engage with their vehicle, which could include renewing their
OnStar or Connected Services plans, checking on their tire pressure, scheduling service, according to GM and Google.

Google Maps will also be embedded in the vehicle to help drivers navigate with real-time traffic information, automatic re-routing and lane guidance. Google Assistant is tied into maps, allowing drivers to use voice to
navigate home, share their ETA or find the nearest gas station and EV charging stations.

The infotainment system will include in-vehicle apps from the Google Pay store.

GM isn’t ditching all of its own features for Google, Chamorro said, adding that the automaker will continue to offer its own infotainment features such as service recommendations, vehicle health status, in-vehicle commerce and more, with the Google applications and services complementing our offerings.

In May, Google announced that it was opening its Android  Automotive operating system up to third-party developers to bring music and other entertainment apps into vehicle infotainment systems. Media app developers are now able to create new entertainment experiences for Android Automotive OS.

Google has been pushing its way into the automotive world, first through Android Auto and then with its operating system, for several years now.

In 2017, Volvo announced plans to incorporate a version of its Android  operating system into its car infotainment systems. A year later, the company said it would embed voice-controlled Google Assistant, Google  Play Store, Google Maps and other Google services into its next-generation Sensus infotainment system.

Polestar  2, an all-electric vehicle developed by Volvo’s standalone electric performance brand, also has the Android OS. Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance anf Fiat Chrysler Automobiles have also announced plans for Android Automotive OS.

“Cars are quickly transforming and opening up a lot of opportunity,” Patrick Brady, vice president of engineering at Google, said in a recent interview. “Its the beautiful thing about having a platform like this. There are services that we might not be thinking about today and that be here tomorrow.”

Plex is launching its own ad-supported video service, starting with content from Warner Bros. TV – gpgmail


Streaming media company Plex this morning announced it will begin to offer ad-supported video, including movies and TV, by way of a new content agreement with Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution. Though Plex has more recently expanded into new areas beyond organizing home media — including streaming TV and cloud DVRs, streaming music by way of a TIDAL partnership, podcasts, news and more — this new deal represents the first time that Plex has ever offered ad-supported content on its service that will benefit its bottom line.

At the Consumer Electronics Show in January, gpgmail broke the news that Plex was preparing to move into the ad-supported movies market.

The company at the time said it was in discussions with various rights holders and content providers, including premium networks, to bring more streaming video to its platform. Its model would be similar to Roku’s The Roku Channel, in that it would start with free, ad-supported movies and TV, then add more content, which may at some point include subscriptions.

Plex was unable to say how many movies and TV shows would be coming to Plex users by way of its licensing agreement, nor could it offer a sampling of titles due to the nature of its contract with Warner Bros. But it will have more to share on this front as the offering gets closer to launch, later this year.

The company also said it will use SpotX for programmatic ads, with more ad sales capabilities to roll out in the future. The revenue from the ad sales will be on top of what Plex already makes from its premium feature set, by way of its Plex Pass subscriptions.

Also still in the works is how, exactly, the free movies and TV will be surfaced in the Plex user interface.

Today, Plex has a left-hand side menu navigation where “online content” can be found, like TIDAL, news, podcasts, and web shows. This would be a likely destination to add the new AVOD (ad-supported video on demand) collection, but Plex may decide to redesign parts of its interface instead.

The movies and TV shows will be available to the millions of Plex users in the U.S., not just subscribers. But its larger AVOD service, which will eventually be expanded, will be global in nature.

Today, Plex has grown to around 20 million users, but it doesn’t say how many are paying customers. (As Plex told us earlier, its investors don’t want anyone to be able to “back into its revenue numbers,” but it is profitable.)

The company’s longer-term vision is to become even more of a one-stop shop for all your media – whether that’s content you own, buy or stream.

“Plex has always been about solving new media challenges, and our mission is to tame the growing chaos in the media landscape,” said Keith Valory, CEO of Plex, in a statement about the launch. “Licensing these movies from Warner Bros. enables us to offer more types of third-party content than any other platform and bring it all together in one beautiful solution. Premium ad-supported movies and shows deserve first-class treatment alongside other content that consumers enjoy daily, as opposed to being orphaned in yet another stand-alone app.”
