Inside the Double-Digit Revenue Growth in Digital Publishing Subscriptions Last Year...
2 days ago
Despite the ongoing drumbeat of reported doom and gloom for the survival of publishing, a new report on the subscription economy says subscription revenue for digital news and information publications increased by 16% in 2020 even in the face of declining advertising revenues. Overall, the study concludes that the subscription economy has grown by nearly 500% in the past decade. Zuora, an enterprise software company that creates and provides software to launch and manage subscription based services, said in its bi-annual report that major news stories — including the COVID-19 crisis, racial inequality protests and the contentious U.S. presidential election — fueled a boom in subscribers for newspapers, magazines, book publishers, educational content providers and corporate research providers. In its report Zuora, headquartered in Redwood City, provides as an example that the legacy magazine The Atlantic, founded in 1857, added 36,000 new digital subscribers in four weeks during the pandemic, even as they lifted paywall restrictions on coronavirus coverage. The Atlantic also highlighted its subscription gains last September, saying the publication added 300,000 subscribers compared to the year prior. “From the COVID-19 pandemic, to Brexit, to protests in response to racial injustice, to a monumental U.S. election, 2020 may go down as one of the most news-breaking years in the existence of digital publishing,” the Zuora report stated. “Meanwhile, public trust in all sources of information reached record lows. Trust levels declined across traditional media, search engines, and social media — by eight, six, and five percentage points, respectively — and many readers turned to alternative information sources.” Also Read: The Los Angeles Times in Crisis: Stalled Subscriptions, Drowsy Leadership, Slack Channel Trash Talk (Exclusive) Publishing Sector Revenue Growth-Zuora Subscription Economy Report 2021 The Zuora report included grim statistics on advertising revenues for print and digital publishing. According to PwC’s Media Outlook report, as quoted in the study, global newspaper advertising (print and online) will fall from $49.2 billion in 2019 to $36 billion in 2024, a decline of more than a quarter (27%) over five years. However, the Zuora’s report suggests that growing subscription revenues may help offset the losses. “Advertising has been languishing for years,” Amy Konary, founder and chair of Zuora’s Subscribed Institute think tank, told TheWrap. “Many ads are designed to prey on consumer self-esteem or use misleading information to make sales; the effectiveness of these ads is declining, and serious concerns have been raised about consumer privacy.” Konary said digital subscription-based publishers don’t need advertising revenue to survive: “Instead, these companies are thriving on strong customer relationships, created through the delivery on ongoing innovation and value in the form of high-quality, personalized content.” Also Read: Disney+ Tops 94 Million Subscribers as Pandemic Continues to Drag Down Bottom Line The study also reported marked growth in media subscriptions, citing Deloitte’s Digital Media Trends Survey. “Before COVID-19, the average U.S. consumer had 12 paid media and entertainment subscriptions. As reported in the same survey, since the pandemic began, 23% of U.S. consumers have added at least one new paid video streaming service.” the report said. “This is evidence of the growing popularity of streaming media. Subscription models help media companies to create subscriber-centric experiences, building ongoing relationships with their subscribers across whatever channels they choose.” The report also included revenue growth information for telecommunications, manufacturing, business services, health care and education, among other categories.

Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2: A better balance of premium and practical...
6 days ago
Samsung’s first Galaxy Chromebook was a thing to behold. It had an incredibly sharp and vivid 4K screen, a wonderful keyboard and a thin, light, well-designed body. It was almost everything you could want from a laptop — but its $1,000 price and embarrassing battery life made it a non-starter. Wisely, Samsung went back to the drawing board for the sequel. This year’s Galaxy Chromebook 2 looks very similar to the original, but under the hood there are significant changes, none more so than the new display. Gone is the gaudy, eye-popping 4K resolution. Instead you get a more pedestrian 1080p screen. Samsung made a number of other compromises on this computer too — but the good news is that they’re all smart changes that make the Galaxy Chromebook 2 both cheaper ($699 as reviewed) and better than its predecessor. Pros Impressive screen Good keyboard Powerful processor Surprisingly loud speakers Attractive design Cons A little pricey Battery life is just average Gallery: Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 review photos | 14 Photos Gallery: Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 review photos | 14 Photos Hardware and design At first glance, the Galaxy Chromebook 2 looks near-identical to last year’s model. Once again, the model I’m reviewing came in a bold “fiesta red” color, though there’s also a gray option for drab corporate types. Gone is the eye-catching silver metal edge that ran around the older laptop; this one is red all over. And the body of the Galaxy Chromebook 2 is a bit bigger, too — 13.9mm thick and 2.7 pounds. That’s still pretty compact, but the old Galaxy Chromebook was only 9.9mm thick and 2.2 pounds. This is the first compromise you’ll notice, but despite the change the Galaxy Chromebook 2 is still a well-made laptop that is easy to carry around all day. Nathan Ingraham / Engadget Before powering the laptop up, I took note of a few other things missing. There’s no camera on the keyboard deck, so if you flip the laptop around into tablet mode, you won’t be able to take pictures. Not a big loss. Same goes for the lack of a built-in stylus — it’s just not something I find that useful on a Chromebook. But if you do miss it, the Galaxy Chromebook 2 works with any Universal Stylus Initiative pen. Finally, there’s no fingerprint sensor on the keyboard like there was on the original. That’s the first thing I really missed here, as using a fingerprint to log in is way easier than using a password. Fortunately, you can also set a six-digit PIN to login or use an Android phone to unlock the laptop. When I powered the laptop up, I briefly forgot that it didn’t have a 4K screen, because the 1080p QLED touchscreen looks outstanding. Colors are bright and saturated without being exaggerated and viewing angles are solid. It’s also a very bright screen which helped a lot when working on a sunny morning. Yes, the resolution is lower, but the quality of the screen makes up for it — and given what a huge drain a 4K screen is on a laptop’s battery, this is a trade-off that almost everyone will be in favor of. In what was likely another cost-cutting measure, Samsung cut the Ambient EQ feature that automatically adjusted the screen’s color temperature to your surroundings. Given how aggressive it was on the original Galaxy Chromebook, I’m not missing it too much here. The display still has minimal bezels, at least on three sides; the chin below the screen remains an eyesore and I really wish the display stretched more vertically. I’ve said many times how much I prefer a 16:10 (or taller) aspect ratio on a laptop, but the vast majority of Chromebooks still stick with 16:9. I’m used to it, but I still sigh a little and miss the 2017 Pixelbook’s 3:2 display. I believe Samsung used the same keyboard and trackpad as it did on the original Galaxy Chromebook, which I don’t have a problem with. The keyboard isn’t the best — it’s a little shallow, like Apple’s old butterfly keyboards. But it’s a lot softer to type on and I got used to it pretty quickly. I still wish the whole keyboard was shifted up a bit higher than it is to make room for a larger trackpad, but it’s still a good (if not exceptional) experience. One thing that did give me pause was that I got double-spaces occasionally when I was typing, which reminded me of the stuck keys the old MacBook Pro was plagued with. Everything seems fine right now, but it’s definitely something I’m keeping an eye on during longer-term testing. Nathan Ingraham / Engadget (Also, allow me to rant for a moment about a giant promotional sticker on the left side palmrest. Having a sticker beneath your palm is not a premium experience. I tried removing it but it didn’t come off cleanly, so I left it where it was for the sake of getting better photos. But if I paid $700 for this laptop and left a mess from peeling off a pointless sticker the day I bought it, I’d be infuriated. Let’s say it loudly: there is no need for stickers on a laptop in 2021.) As is often the case with convertible laptops, Samsung put speakers on the bottom rather than facing up from the keyboard. There are two smaller ones on the left and right as well as a large, long one running through the middle. They’re not the best I’ve ever heard, but they sound good for a relatively small computer. Samsung says it’s using a technology called Smart Amp to crank these speakers up to 178 percent louder than “standard laptops” without experiencing distortion. I don’t know what they’re measuring off, but they are impressively loud and pretty clear. They’re not as good as the speaker in Apple’s recent MacBook Pro models, but those computers cost a lot more than the Galaxy Chromebook......
