It's hard to understate how important Pandora's new on-demand service, which competes with the likes of Spotify and Apple Music, is to its future as a company.Many investors seem to have lost faith in Pandora's ability to succeed as an independent company without some sort of change.That's why Pandora's stock price swings wildly every time an exec at Liberty Media, which is seen as Pandora's only real suitor, makes a comment about its business.But Pandora still has a massive and loyal audience, and its leadership is betting big that Pandora Premium, the new on-demand service, will be a hit."We intend to be profitable this year," Pandora CEO Tim Westergren said earlier this month on CNBC.A chunk of that goal is likely tied to on-demand, where Pandora wants to have 6 to 9 million subscribers by the end of the year.I've been trying Pandora Premium, which is being gradually rolled out to the public, for over a week, and I have both good news and bad news for Pandora investors.The good news is that it's a beautiful and intuitive product, and is likely to snag some of Pandora's internet-radio fans, especially with playlist-building features that leverage Pandora's trove of historical data on longtime users.The bad news is that there are a few places where Pandora Premium really misses on the chance to be the first service to seamlessly integrate on-demand with the "lean-back" style of listening Pandora is famous for.Here's what I mean: View As:

You're just an ordinary 1930s inhabitant of the ordinary town of Arkham, Massachusetts—a plain New England place where nothing unusual ever happens.Well, except for that one infestation of hood-wearing cultists hoping to usher an angry Elder God into our world.Or that little problem with the Dark Young of Shub-Niggurath.When occult trouble threatens, Miskatonic University's aging librarian, Professor Henry Armitage—the kind of man who runs a "restricted section" featuring books like the human-skin-covered Necromomicon—beckons you to his office.Mythos Tales is fully cooperative and works as well with one player as it does with more.Every question of his that you can answer correctly is worth points.

Xiaomi has released an enchanced version of its internet speaker, the Mi Internet Radio.The original version was launched last year but lacked, among other things, a battery.The latest Mi Internet Radio is a handy little portable speaker that is small enough to get lost in your backpack.It features Bluetooth connectivity and the MiHome app which is available on Play Store can be used to configure the speaker.Mi Internet Radio was launched last year at a price of ¥129 which is about $18.At that price point, it should have been no surprise that a built-in battery was not present.Even so, Xiaomi would have picked up hints from its customers and decided to launch a battery powered version of its popular portable Bluetooth speaker.Join GizChina on TelegramThe new Mi Internet Radio has been priced at ¥149 or about $21 and features a 1,000mAh battery.

The Unicode 10.0 emojis have now been narrowed down from 51 and will begin rolling out to users on June 30th this year.Among the newcomers is a long-overdue woman wearing a headscarf, a mother breastfeeding and a gentleman with a beard.Among the more frivolous, less socially-conscious releases are an emoji for broccoli, male and female fairies and a devil horns sign for those rock and roll fans out there.For those who’ve rocked out too hard, there’s a vomit emoji, while there's also one for angry expletives, having one’s mind blown, having stars in one’s eyes and raising an eyebrow like The Rock.The emojis have been mocked up by Emojipedia (via Engadget) and do not represent the final designs deployed by software makers like Apple and Google, but they shouldn't be too far away.Which emojis are still missing from the line-up?

Elon Musk has taken to Twitter to set the record straight over the forthcoming Tesla Model 3 electric car.The Telsa CEO attempted to clear up the misconception that, due to the numbering, the Model 3 is the “next version” of the company’s technology.Instead, Musk reaffirmed the Model 3 remained a more affordable version of the Model S with a shorter range, less power and fewer features.If that didn’t clear things up for those thinking the Model 3 might be the new flagship, Musk added the Model S “is the car I will keep driving even after Model 3 arrives.”He also said an all-wheel drive version of the Model 3 won’t arrive until up to 9 months after the first versions of the car go on sale.During an active Friday afternoon on the social networking site, Musk also released a video showing the first drive of a ‘release candidate’ Model 3.

When the UK followed in the footsteps of this US this week by announcing an electronics ban on certain flights to the UK, it looked like it was game over for playing the Nintendo Switch on boring long-haul journeys.The ban prohibits passengers carrying devices larger than 16cm long, 9.3cm wide or 1.5cm deep in their hand luggage on select flights from certain countries and airlines.That pretty much prevents you from popping any device other than your smartphone in your carry-on.Given the Nintendo Switch is designed to transform into a portable handheld console for on-the-go gaming, this wasn’t welcome news for keen in-flight gamers.Especially given Nintendo’s ad campaign for the Switch features it being used on, er – a plane.But the Department for Transport has now announced the happy news that the Nintendo Switch, which sold more than 1.5 million units in its first week, will be exempt from the ban along with other handheld consoles.

Good old Elon Musk, he sure seems to enjoy enlightening quiet Friday news days.Two weeks ago he pledged to solve the energy woes of an entire Australian state and now he’s dropping info bombs on when US homes will be able order Tesla’s solar roofs.In a tweet posted on Friday, the Tesla founder and CEO said customers can't start buying up their new roofing from next month.The new solar tiles, which replace the entire surface of the roof rather than simply adding panels, are designed to look like regular old roof shingles, but come in a range of glass styles.The tiles, which appear transparent to the sun, but opaque to the human eye operate with 98% efficiency compared to a regular solar panel.So, your home can look like everyone else’s on the block, while you’ll enjoy a much-reduced energy bill.

A Beijing court has overturned a ruling that Apple’s iPhone 6 violated a Chinese manufacturer’s patent which saw the US tech giant ordered to cease selling the smartphone in Beijing.In May last year the Beijing Intellectual Property Office ruled that Apple violated design patents of Chinese maker Shenzhen Baili with its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and would be barred from selling those models in the capital.Sales, however, were not suspended while Apple appealed against the administrative order.The Intellectual Property Court in Beijing on Friday ruled in favour of the California-based firm.The court “quashes the decision of the bureau” and “recognises that Apple ... has not infringed the design patent filed by the company Shenzhen Baili”, according to the verdict reported by the People’s Court Daily.The intellectual property office, an administrative body of Beijing municipality, had ruled that the two Apple phones infringed a Baili design patent.

In this episode, Robert and I dissect the latest native advertising research to see whether this technique is gaining ground or losing fans.We also explore some optimistic CMO research, and explain why technology and analytics will save the day.Our rants and raves cover simplification and measuring bodies, then we take on March Madness in our example of the week.1. Notable news and upcoming trendsEvidence is mounting that native advertising doesn’t work… (09:16): Media Life Magazine reports on a new study by MediaRadar, which finds that, despite significant gains in native ad spending over the past few years, two-thirds of advertisers who try the technique ultimately abandon it.Among the bigger issues that we see here is that advertisers’ expectations with native advertising seem to be unrealistic in terms of volume and velocity.

It was only last summer that Apple CEO Tim Cook declared his vision for a company that lasts one thousand years.But Cook's far-reaching calendar already seems to be in trouble, with an ever-growing list of rivals and weaknesses threatening to undermine the Apple empire.Just consider:Google's homebuilt Pixel phones are innovating where iPhone stagnates.Microsoft is now building PCs and tablets that turn more heads than the Mac and iPad.Amazon's Alexa virtual assistant and Echo device are poised to own the nascent smarthome market before Apple's competing HomeKit really builds any momentum.Meanwhile, Apple's biggest fans worry that the company is losing focus, building iterative and inelegant new hardware rather than the highly-polished and groundbreaking products that the company made its name on.And impatience for new iPhones, the mysterious "Apple Car," or even the reported Apple smart glasses runs rampant.That's not a very reassuring situation for a company with such a long-term ambition.And with only a few years under his belt as CEO of Apple, Cook still has a lot to prove.But while everybody freaks out over the idea that Apple has lost its mojo, it's worth stepping back and look at some of the things the company has already done to safeguard its future.Children are the futureIn the short term, Apple is easing up on its infamous "Apple tax," lowering prices for its products in a bid to reach a bigger audience.Just this week, for instance, Apple revealed a new low-cost iPad and it upgraded its least-expensive iPhone model, reflecting Apple's desire to fight Android in terms of price, not just features.That cheaper iPad is great for consumers, but it could also give Apple a new and more stable foothold in classrooms, too.Cook has said on multiple occassions that he wants Swift, Apple's homegrown programming language, to be the main way that kids get into programming.

A growing number of global brands have pulled their advertising campaigns from YouTube over the past week after finding their ads had appeared next to extremist content.Google, which owns YouTube, has vowed to tackle the issue by working on toughening up its policies, making its advertiser controls easier to use, and hiring more staff to police content deemed unsafe by advertisers.However, as this illustrative chart from Enders Analysis shows, at least some of the blame for such ad misplacement falls on the ad buyers themselves:The chart demonstrates that the cheapest ads — bought using automated systems on ad exchanges that serve ads to a swathe of sites across the web — carry the most risk, whereas ads that have been directly sold by a media owner — and particularly broadcasters — are deemed the most safe."YouTube Preferred" — a service where advertisers pay a premium to only appear against the most popular videos — also appears quite high up the chart.But most advertisers simply buy YouTube ads at scale, via ad exchanges like Google's AdX.As Google executives themselves explained earlier this week, 400 hours of user-generated content are uploaded to YouTube every minute, making it extremely difficult to monitor which content is safe for brands to advertise against and which isn't.In a research note, Enders says: "The basic idea of 'you get what you pay for' in programmatic video advertising, either in media costs or agency planning and service fees (or both, depending on the type of media), is something we believe that many advertisers have yet to fully incorporate into their strategy for media buying."Business Insider took a deeper look at the real motivations behind the YouTube advertiser boycott earlier this week.We spoke to more than a dozen ad executives who suggested the boycott smacks of "opportunism" and a chance to gleefully bash the biggest player in the online ad industry.
