Internet News | Yahoo Cuts

January 23rd, 2011 18 comments

The latest Internet news….

Yahoo continues to reduce its work force by 4% that will affect 600 people. Whilst rival google announced a 10% pay increase for every member of staff.

Indeed whilst the internet continues to grow it seems that Yahoo continues to miss the mark with only 2% growth in the year that saw Google grow by a staggering 23%

Yahoo just keeps getting it wrong unfortunately. Just a few years ago in 2008 Yahoo rejected a thirty billion dollar bid from microsoft and today is combined value of shares totals around twenty two billion dollars.

Whilst we also heard of some operational problems in their UK social media department we can see that other social media properties like YouTube, Twitter and Facebook continue to grab the cash and the headlines with hundreds of millions of users flocking to those services it seems that Yahoos models are just not taking off in the same way.

Lets hope that they fare better in 2011, we wish them well – and no doubt some of those 600 will find employment at Microsoft and Google.

To stay abreast of developments as they happen, it is easy to subscribe, share or like this video, go ahead and do that now.

January 23rd, 2011 No comments

To view the entire webcast visit http://www.statsoft.com/company/webcastsworkshops.htm

Applying data mining to accurately predict customer behavior offers businesses advantages across a wide range of functional areas, from marketing applications such as loyalty and churn/attrition management to credit risk management and overall business strategy. In this Webcast, we will use credit scoring as an example of how existing customers past behavior improves predictions about their probability of default. Customers are initially scored when they apply for a credit card and are evaluated again when a subset of customers apply for extended credit. For the extended credit evaluation, the customer?s transactions are used to improve the initial score. The Webcast will also show that a similar approach is effective to predict customer churn and marketing campaign response.

Technology News | Set top boxes Christmas surge

January 15th, 2011 No comments

Have you heard the latest Technology News? As predicted in late 2010 Christmas was to prove a big hit for web TV set top boxes.

At Apple they have been flying off the shelves and by December 2010 Apple announced that they hit the landmark number of 1 million units sold.

Apple tells us that over 400,000 TV episodes and over 150,000 movies are being bought per day, this is yet another big hit.

So no wonder then that others such as Sony, Yahoo and more want a piece of the action.

Other companies to watch include Netflix, YouTube, Flickr and MobileMe? who are streaming their content direct to consumers via third party set top boxes.
