Twice the Price Store Announces Grand Opening in New York

This post was originally published on this site

The Twice the Price store, a pop up store that stocks hundreds of items at twice their regular price, is opening its doors for browsing today. This is the first Twice the Price store in the country even though the idea for this one of a kind store has been in the works for months! The new store is located at 69 43 Grand Avenue, Flushing, New York 11378, and will be open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.1

Sticker-shocked shoppers will find potato chips, party supplies, boogie boards, makeup mirrors, mops, bottles of water and more – all for twice their regular price. Everyone who stops by the Twice the Price store will have a very memorable shopping experience. The price displays show customers upfront that they’re paying twice as much. Why pay less when you can pay more?

“People ask me how I came up with this genius idea and I told them, ‘If Verizon can charge customers twice as much for four lines of Unlimited, why can’t I?'” said Uncle Danny, owner and president, Twice the Price store. “Did I copy Verizon? No, I was just inspired by their over-the-top pricing and the billions of dollars they’ve made. I wanted to give customers a similar experience in my store. We’ll sell anything for twice the price!”

You might be scratching your head right now…but, this concept is inspired by what the store’s neighbor, Verizon Wireless, is similarly doing: They are hooking wireless customers across the country into paying double for four to five lines of unlimited data. Right now, when a customer switches to Sprint, for a limited time, they can get four lines of unlimited data, talk and text for $22.50 per month per line. Plus, the fifth line is free.2 Verizon’s comparable plan for four lines is advertised at $45 per line: Twice the Price.

So stop by the Twice the Price Store to learn more about how NOT to get “hooked” by Verizon and see the value that Sprint Unlimited Freedom offers.

DoubleDutch, Inc., le plus grand fournisseur mondial de solutions de Live Engagement Marketing (LEM), a fait sa d claration la lumi re d’une annonce d’Apple qui change la donne, dans le cadre de la conf rence WWDC de cette ann e. DoubleDutch accueille et se r jouit d’un nouveau changement de r glementation et de distribution qui forcera l’industrie des applications v nementielles moderniser la fa on dont elle livre le logiciel, r unissant de nombreuses applications mobiles publi es en une application portant la marque d’un seul fournisseur.

Lawrence Coburn , PDG de DoubleDutch, a déclaré, « Nous savions que le bon modèle ressemblait plus à Slack ou Gmail – une application unique, sécurisée, contenant tous les réseaux des clients, cloisonnée de façon sécuritaire entre les groupes et les équipes, tout en étant profondément personnalisée pour chaque compte. »

Le changement de politique d’Apple a donné un coup de pouce à une industrie qui, au final, sera avantageuse pour les propriétaires d’évènements et les fournisseurs de technologies évènementielles. Dans lehttp://doubledutch.me/blog/event-tech-giant-step-forward-help-from-apple billet publié aujourd’hui, jeudi 20 juillet à 10 h 00, par M. Coburn, il mentionne, « Les avantages de cette architecture sont multiples : une découverte d’applications simplifiée favorisant l’adoption et l’engagement, la capacité à fournir une fonctionnalité inter-évènements, l’occasion de déployer efficacement des mises à jour de fonctions (ou des patchs de sécurité), et l’occasion de livrer de la valeur pendant toute l’année, pour n’en nommer que quelques-uns. »

Bien que cette transition représente certainement un changement majeur pour l’industrie des applications évènementielles, les expériences personnalisées pour chaque évènement ne vont pas disparaître. Il appartiendra à des fournisseurs tels que DoubleDutch de valider ces expériences de marque profondes au-delà de l’icône de l’application, et de fournir les fonctions transformationnelle et la fonctionnalité validées par Universal Event Apps.

Comme Coburn l’indique dans son billet, « Le marketing moderne …..consiste à fournir une personnalisation de masse en restant à l’écoute des signaux comportementaux et en réagissant de façon appropriée…. Le concept appelé Live Engagement Marketing […]  et les principes de LEM ne seront que renforcés par l’adoption accrue et l’engagement prolongé d’un monde « Universal App ».

Apple neemt afstand van White Label Event-app, waardoor een Winner Takes All-gelegenheid gecreëerd wordt; DoubleDutch is bereid om te winnen

This post was originally published on this site

DoubleDutch, Inc., de wereldwijde toonaangevende leverancier van Live Engagement Marketing (LEM) oplossingen, heeft in het kader van een baanbrekende aankondiging van Apple tijdens de WWDC conferentie, een verklaring afgegeven.� DoubleDutch stemt in met, en is enthousiast over een nieuwe regelgeving en distributieverandering die de sector voor evenementen apps zal dwingen om hun manier van software levering te moderniseren, waarbij een veelvoud aan uitgebrachte mobiele apps samengebracht zal worden in n enkelvoudige merkgebonden mobiele app.

Aldus Lawrence Coburn , CEO van DoubleDutch “We wisten dat het juiste model meer leek op Slack of Gmail – een enkelvoudige, veilige app met alle klantnetwerken, veilig opgesplitst tussen groepen en teams, maar toch met vergaande aanpassingen voor elk account.”

Apple’s beleidswijziging heeft de sector aangespoord, wat uiteindelijk gunstig zal zijn voor deelnemers, evenementhouders, en technische leveranciers voor evenementen.  In Coburns blogpost, dat vandaag donderdag 20 juli om 10 uur gepubliceerd werd, zegt hij verder, “Er zijn veel voordelen verbonden aan deze architectuur, waaronder een eenvoudigere app-ontdekking wat grotere aanname/betrokkenheid tot gevolg zal hebben, de mogelijkheid om een evenement-overbruggende functionaliteit te bieden, de mogelijkheid voor een functionaliteit om efficiënt updates (of beveiligingspatches) te implementeren, en de mogelijkheid om het hele jaar door waarde te kunnen leveren.”

Hoewel deze overgang zeker een grote verandering is voor de event app-sector, zullen de gepersonaliseerde ervaringen voor elk evenement zeker niet verdwijnen. Leveranciers zoals DoubleDutch zullen er verantwoordelijk voor zijn om deze diepgaande merkgebonden ervaringen te activeren voorbij het app-pictogram, en om transformerende eigenschappen en functies te leveren die door de universele evenementen-apps mogelijk gemaakt worden.

Zoals Coburn in zijn blogpost schrijft, “Moderne marketing…..draait om het leveren van massa-personalisatie door te luisteren naar gedragssignalen en door hierop op gepaste wijze te reageren…. Een concept dat bekend staat als Live Engagement Marketing […]  en de beginselen van LEM zullen alleen maar versterkt worden door de hogere mate van aanname en de langere betrokkenheid van een universele app-wereld.”

Over DoubleDutch

DoubleDutch’s missie is om de zakelijke waarde van menselijk contact te ontsluiten door live-ervaringen te verbeteren door middel van de kracht van digitalisering. Het Live Engagement-platform van DoubleDutch ondersteunt evenementen, conferenties, en vakbeurzen voor meer dan 1.700 klanten waaronder Akamai, LinkedIn, BlackRock, Bosch, Novartis en UBM.

Apple stellt White Label Event App ein und schafft so eine Winner-takes-all-Chance, die DoubleDutch entschlossen ist zu ergreifen

This post was originally published on this site

SAN FRANCISCO , 21. DoubleDutch, Inc., der weltweit f hrende Anbieter von L sungen im Bereich Live Engagement Marketing (LEM), hat angesichts einer wegweisenden Ank ndigung von Apple auf der diesj hrigen WWDC Konferenz Stellung bezogen.� DoubleDutch ist in bereinstimmung mit und begeistert von einer neuen Regulierung und Distributions nderung, welche die Event App Branche dazu zwingt, die Art der Bereitstellung von Software zu modernisieren, indem viele ver ffentlichte mobile Apps in einer einzigen mobilen Marken App von einem Anbieter zusammengef hrt werden.

Lawrence Coburn , der CEO von DoubleDutch kommentierte: „Wir wussten, dass das richtige Modell eher wie Slack oder Gmail aussehen würde – eine einzige, sichere App, die alle Kundennetzwerke einschließt und sicher zwischen Gruppen und Teams abgetrennt ist, aber dennoch ganz individuell auf jedes Konto angepasst ist.”

Apples Strategieänderung hat einer Branche einen Anstoß gegeben, der letztlich für Teilnehmer, Event-Besitzer und Event-Tech-Anbieter von Vorteil sein wird. In Coburns Blogeintrag, der heute am Donnerstag, den 20. Juli um 10 Uhr veröffentlicht wurde, erzählt er weiter: „Die Vorteile dieser Architektur sind vielseitig: einfachere App-Entdeckung, die zu höherer Annahme/Interaktion führt, die Fähigkeit, Cross-Event-Funktionalität zu liefern, die Möglichkeit, effizient Feature-Updates (oder Sicherheits-Patches) bereitzustellen so wie die Chance, das ganze Jahr über Mehrwert zu schaffen, um nur einige zu nennen.”

Während diese Umstellung sicherlich eine große Veränderung für die Event-App-Branche darstellt, werden die personalisierten Erfahrungen bei jeder Veranstaltung beibehalten. Es wird die Aufgabe von Anbietern wie DoubleDutch sein, diese äußerst markengeprägten Erfahrungen über das App-Icon hinaus zu ermöglichen und die von Universal Event Apps implementierten Transformationsfunktionen und Funktionalitäten zu liefern.

Wie Coburn in seinem Blogpost schreibt: „Beim modernen Marketing … geht es um die Bereitstellung von Massenpersonalisierung, indem Verhaltenssignale wahrgenommen werden und angemessen darauf reagiert wird … Ein Konzept, das als Live Engagement Marketing bekannt ist […], und die Prinzipien von LEM werden allein durch die höhere Annahme und längere Interaktion einer Universal-App-Welt gestärkt werden.”

Informationen zu DoubleDutch

Die Aufgabe von DoubleDutch besteht darin, den geschäftlichen Wert von menschlichen Kontakten zu entschlüsseln, indem die Leistung der Digitalität in Live-Erfahrungen integriert wird. Die DoubleDutch Live-Engagement Plattform unterstützt Veranstaltungen, Konferenzen und Messen bei mehr als 1.700 Kunden wie Akamai, LinkedIn, BlackRock, Bosch, Novartis und UBM. Das Unternehmen wurde ausgezeichnet von Deloitte als eines der 500 am schnellsten wachsenden Unternehmen in Nordamerika, von AlwaysOn als eines der OnMedia Top-100 Privaten Unternehmen und von Forbes als eines der 10 Hot Unternehmen in San Francisco . DoubleDutch hat seine Unternehmenszentrale in San Francisco und weitere US-Büros in Phoenix und Portland. Seine weltweiten Vertretungen befinden sich in Amsterdam und London .

Apple Moves Away from White Label Event App, Creating Winner Take All Opportunity; DoubleDutch Prepared to Win

This post was originally published on this site

DoubleDutch, Inc., the global leading provider of Live Engagement Marketing (LEM) solutions, has made its statement in the light of a game changing announcement from Apple at this year’s WWDC conference.� DoubleDutch is in agreement with, and excited for, a new regulation and distribution change which will force the event app industry to modernize how it delivers software, rolling up many published mobile apps into one single vendor branded mobile app.

Says DoubleDutch CEO Lawrence Coburn , “We knew that the right model looked more like Slack or Gmail – a single, secure app that contained all customer networks, safely partitioned between groups and teams, yet still deeply customized for each account.”

Apple’s change in policy has given a nudge to an industry that will ultimately be beneficial for attendees, event owners, and event tech vendors.  In Coburn’s blog post, posted today, Thursday July 20th at 10am , he goes on to mention, “The benefits of this architecture are many: simpler app discovery leading to higher adoption / engagement, the ability to deliver cross event functionality, the opportunity to efficiently roll out feature updates (or security patches), and the chance to deliver year round value, just to name a few.”

While this transition certainly represents a big change for the event app industry, personalized experiences for each event is not going away. It will be up to vendors like DoubleDutch to enable these deeply branded experiences beyond the app icon, and to deliver the transformational features and functionality enabled by Universal Event Apps.

As Coburn writes in his blog post, “Modern marketing …..is about delivering mass personalization by listening to behavioral signals and responding appropriately…. A concept known as Live Engagement Marketing […]  and the principles of LEM will only be strengthened by the higher adoption and longer engagement of a Universal App world.”

Pittsburgh Verizon Customers Can Celebrate Having the #1 Rated Network

This post was originally published on this site

� Verizon’s ongoing yearly investments combined with its use of the latest network technologies has resulted in the wireless provider coming out on top in the city of Pittsburgh in the latest rankings by RootMetrics .

Verizon’s substantial investment in the Steel City’s network (more than $100 million in the past five years) ensures its customers have the best possible experience when they’re looking to call, post, stream and text- no matter where they are in the city. These enhancements led to a back-to-back #1 ranking for Verizon in overall network performance, as well as network reliability.

The top ranking comes as a result of hard work and dedication by its network team including substantial investment in its network throughout the city and the state. In 2016, for instance, Verizon spent more than $341 million ensuring customers throughout the state have the best possible experience. In Pittsburgh , this included adding coverage and capacity citywide, thanks to the installation of additional macros cells, small cells (mini cell sites that boost coverage and add capacity) as well as antennas in the Fort Pitt, Squirrel Hill and Liberty Tunnels. Pittsburgh Penguin fans can celebrate more than their team’s Stanley Cup win. The installation of eight small cells around the PPG Paints Arena means more fans can call, text and stream their celebrations at once.

“Ensuring we’re there for our customers when they need us most is our top priority,” said John Granby , Market President. “And our network team is dedicated to providing them the largest 4G LTE network that is unparalleled in reliability and performance.”

Building the nation’s largest and most reliable 4G LTE network means always looking for ways to make it better. Last year Verizon committed more than $11.2 billion to doing just that.

*Rankings based on RootMetrics Pittsburgh (March 2017 ) RootScore® Report. Tested with best commercially available smartphones on 4 national mobile networks across all available network types. Your experiences may vary. The RootMetrics award is not an endorsement of Verizon. Visit www.rootmetrics.com for more details.

Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE, Nasdaq: VZ), headquartered in New York City , has a diverse workforce of 161,000 and generated nearly $126 billion in 2016 revenues. Verizon operates America’s most reliable wireless network, with 113.9 million retail connections nationwide. The company also provides communications and entertainment services over mobile broadband and the nation’s premier all-fiber network, and delivers integrated business solutions to customers worldwide.

ATandT Activates Text-To-Donate Campaign For Detwiler Fire Relief

This post was originally published on this site

MARIPOSA, Calif. To help those impacted by the Detwiler Wildfire in Mariposa County, CA , and other California wildfires, AT&T1 has activated its Text to Donate Campaign. Wireless customers can make a $10 donation to assist those affected by texting REDCROSS to 90999 to support the American Red Cross. Customers can text up to five times for a total donation of $50 . AT&T won’t charge any fees for texting to donate. Customers will see their donation on their monthly AT&T bill. AT&T donates 100 percent of the proceeds to the American Red Cross.�

AT&T continues to keep its Emergency Response Team deployed in Mariposa County to assist first responders, and members of the community who have evacuated from their homes due to the Detwiler Fire. AT&T’s mobile cell site called Satellite Cell on Light Truck (or Sat COLT) continues to run at the Mariposa County Fairgrounds to provide communications support at the Detwiler Fire Command Site. The location is hosting Cal Fire first responders, who are leading the Detwiler fire response.

AT&T’s Sat COLT provides cellular service in the deployment area, and is targeted to support those working in the command site to help keep communications flowing. As a self-contained mobile cell site, a Sat COLT can be quickly set up to replace lost capacity from a damaged permanent site, or as in this case, provide supplemental cellular capacity to an area experiencing an increase in demand. The deployment is being staffed by AT&T’s California Field Operations team members.

This post was originally published on this site

ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill.� Cambium Networks, a leading global provider of wireless networking solutions, today announced that its cnPilot Wi Fi products have been awarded “best product” at the SMB Techfest event in Anaheim, California .

“This is a premier Wi-Fi conference including great products from the best vendors in the industry,” said Atul Bhatnagar , President and CEO of Cambium Networks. “It is an honor that cnPilot has been selected for this award.”

Frictionless Wi-Fi Enterprises and service providers now have a dashboard through the Cambium managed service provider feature to view their Wi-Fi network and can manage data privacy, branding and role-based access to network information. The cnMaestro™ management system also has APIs to manage events, alarms and formatting reports and integrate CRM systems.

Adaptive Architecture Cambium’s unique adaptive architecture provides three flexible ways to deploy controller-managed networks:

“AutoPilot makes the controller deployment easy and affordable,” said Vibhu Vivek , Senior Vice President of Products, Cambium Networks. “With AutoPilot, the Wi-Fi AP is the controller, supporting 32 APs or 1,000 clients. This solution has no license or recurring fees while still offering investment protection to the Wi-Fi network administrator, with the option to migrate to a cloud or local controller solution when needed.”

“Cambium Networks clearly understands the needs of Wi-Fi services offered by enterprises and network operators. cnPilot has an attractive equipment cost and provides significant savings in license costs,” says Daryl Schoolar , Practice Leader at Ovum.

Proven Solutions Hotels are able to differentiate by offering superior Wi-Fi with cnPilot. “We currently have multiple cnPilot E400 indoor access points providing in-room Wi-Fi service,” said Jose Barrios , Manager, Hotel Aquarios in Baja, Mexico . “E500 outdoor access points provide Wi-Fi service to the pool area and private parking locations. Cambium Networks has provided the perfect solution.”

We have just that with Cambium Networks, and the bonus was the rich set of features we did not expect in such a competitively priced platform.”

Netflix is much better at picking original TV shows than original movies

This post was originally published on this site

When it comes to original programming, it seems as if everyone is trying to catch up to Netflix. As it stands now, I think it’s fair to say that Netflix’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos’ remarks about supplanting HBO has become a reality. Recall, Sarandos back in 2013 said that “the goal is to become HBO faster than HBO can become us.”

True to form, Netflix in a relatively short time frame has managed to churn out an absolutely staggering amount of original content that spans every type of genre imaginable. And while everyone is familiar with Netflix’s biggest hits, such as House of Cards and the nostalgia-fueled Stranger Things, the streaming giant has been steadily bolstering its lineup of kids programming and stand-up specials as well. Suffice it to say, Netflix’s batting average when it comes to original programming is rather impressive.

That said, Netflix’s expertise when it comes to picking and choosing which original programs to back doesn’t appear to transfer over to the movie realm. According to an interesting report from Rob Toledo over at Exstreamist, the average rating on a Netflix original movie is markedly lower than what one finds with Hollywood movies. In putting together the data, Toledo looked at a number of 2017 movie releases across a variety of genres.

Netflix is averaging an IMDB rating of 5.92 for most of their original films. For reference, the recent ‘Baywatch’ film received a 5.8 IMDB star rating. Studio movies are scoring significantly better, at 6.77 average stars. Most notably, Netflix’s standard deviation is far smaller, with very few movies getting high ratings or low ratings, most falling squarely in the middle, meaning no big winners, something they’re still looking for in a film release.

Netflix, though, likely doesn’t care too much about IMDB ratings. If viewers seem to be tuning in to watch Netflix original movies, despite their apparent mediocrity, we can expect more middle of the road films coming down the pipeline next year.
