Browser Not Apps Still Biggest News Channel on Tablets

first_imgHowever, it appears that while two-thirds of tablet owners have a news app on their device, most are still accessing news content through a Web browser. This is not what content publishers want to hear. As the study points out, publishers banked on apps as the key mechanism for content delivery and sales. “When it was launched, many observers believed that the tablet might help change the experience of news consumers and the economic ground rules of digital news consumption,” says the report. “That belief was based on the sense that people would consume information on tablets largely through special applications or apps that provide content from a favorite news organization like the New York Times or one’s local newspaper.”Forty percent of respondents that read news on their tablets get it via a Web browser. From there, 31 percent use both the browser and a news app, while 21 percent use primarily apps to get their news.Consequently, the economics around news content are constrained. The study finds that 14 percent of respondents have paid to access news on the device. Twenty-three percent get their digital access through a print subscription bundle. And 21 percent would be willing to pay $5 per month if that was the only way to get news from their favorite source on the tablet. Of those that have the news apps, 83 percent said being free or low cost were major factors in downloading the apps.Nevertheless, while desktop computer habits were cited as a potential reason for the continued reliance on browsers for news access, users are beginning to substitute their tablets for other devices when consuming news content. According to the study, 90 percent of news users consume content on the tablet that they used to get through other devices. Eighty percent say they now get news on their tablets that they used to view on their laptop or desktop computers. And tablets are creeping up on print and television, too. Fifty-nine percent of respondents say the tablet has taken the place of magazines and newspapers for news and 57 percent say the same for television. While consuming news has become one of the more popular activities for tablet users, access to it is still largely conducted through a browser, not specialized apps, says a new study released by the Pew Research Center and The Economist Group.Further, generating revenue from news content continues to be a challenge. The study, called “The Tablet Revolution and What it Means for the Future of News”, aims to benchmark tablet usage, particularly in relation to how news content is accessed and consumed. According to the study, tablet owners are avid news consumers. Fifty-three percent of respondents say they consume news daily on the device-more than social networking (39 percent), gaming (30 percent) and reading books (17 percent). Only sending and receiving email, at 54 percent, edged higher. last_img read more

We want to be considered professional equals with Periti – MCAST graduates

first_imgOver 60 MCAST Construction Engineering graduates have called for the role of ‘Site Manager’ to be given professionally equal recognition .The group which states itself to made up of graduated or soon-to-be graduated students of the MCAST course, believes that the public perception of their training and expertise is not as reputed as that of the Perit.Thus their skills and experience still lacks recognition in the construction industry compared to those who pursued a career as a Perit.‘Through the years, graduates and alumni have often experienced or are still experiencing a lack of recognition of skills by the wide spectrum of trades in the construction industry. We often get the feeling that even for the general public, if you are not a Perit, you are an inferior grade role while we all know that for the industry to operate, it needs a spectrum of professional roles in charge of different activities and baring varying responsibilities,’ they state.The writers raised their points in relation to the current discussions over the government’s Legal Notice entitled ‘Avoidance of Damage to Third Party Property Regulations’.‘A manager needs to be on-site for all key decisions’ – construction consultationThe Legal Notice which outlines draft amendments on construction practices also discusses the role of ‘Site Manager.’ They state although the role does not require a breadth of knowledge in architecture but does requires more of a mix of managerial and technical background.However, they state that the role is ‘merely defined as a second in the industry,’ one that holds liability rather than being considered a professional equal, ‘that works hand in hand with the Perit to deliver the project safely and within a mitigated risk environment.’They add that the role of ‘Site Manager’ should instead be considered as a professionalised role with strong structural awareness and site competence.Read more:Updated (1): ‘Public safety is paramount’ – KTPKA hopes draft regulations aren’t superficial attempt to show public that government is taking actionHasty consultation eliminates need to check foundations of buildings‘We feel that it cannot be treated or associated to a skilled tradesperson but a true professional which is highly skilled in understanding structural designs, structural risks on site, subsoil investigations, site logistics and management, excavation practices, problem solving, concrete and masonry works, third party liabilities and many other activities which are required on a normal site,’ they state.Concluding, the 66 MCAST graduates say that they, ‘demand that our skills are truly recognised through a state warrant which thoroughly requires high qualifications and competence, regulated through a review board to grant the status of a professional in line to fulfil the site manager role.’WhatsApp <a href=’http://revive.newsbook.com.mt/www/delivery/ck.php?n=ab2c8853&amp;cb={random}’ target=’_blank’><img src=’https://revive.newsbook.com.mt/www/delivery/avw.php?zoneid=97&amp;cb={random}&amp;n=ab2c8853&amp;ct0={clickurl_enc}’ border=’0′ alt=” /></a> SharePrintlast_img read more
