Today’s daily newspaper circulation and revenue realities – in Canada, the U.S. and the U.K. – are, in fact, part of a long term trend that goes back more than half a century,” write the analysts at Communic@tions Management Inc. (email@example.com) CMI’s excellent white paper outlining these long-term trends, the implications and CMI’s perspectives for the future of the newspaper industry are available exclusively to subscribers to Jack Myers Media Business Report. Subscribers can download the PDF version at http://www.jackmyers.com/commentary/jackmyers-think-tank/Sixty-Years-of-Daily-Newspaper-Circulation-Trends.html?c=n. CMI suggests we are coming to “the end of the ‘Century of Mass Media’ and we now are in an era in which new and old media are competing for our attention, in which we have the luxury of both the “mainstream” and the “alternative”. But we have to consider what the alternatives might look like if, or when, the mainstream is gone or much diminished.” Click here to download the full CMI report.

Media agencies today have more data resources and consequently more consumer insights available to guide creative -- and more media channel opportunities to explore than ever before. I’ve been asked about this from media agencies and creative people. Will creative people even think about it let alone embrace it? I don’t know. But it sure seems possible and will definitely turn the agency business on its ear.Read More
I've been using the Samsung Galaxy S4 as my main mobile device for just about a year now (it launched in March 2013 and was made publically available in April 2013) and I like it – but to be as honest as possible, I don't love it. My main issues with the S4 have to do with the camera, battery life, ergonomics and undeletable Samsung bloatware, but the list is much longer. So, I was very, very excited to get my hands on the new, improved Samsung Galaxy S5. Sadly, my excitement quickly turned to ambivalence.Read More
