Content Insider #247 - Flashy Storage
SSD ... More Stuff than You Can Afford to Carry
Next to backup and archiving about the toughest thing to get people excited about is storage. Oh sure you know you have to have it but storage is just well...storage. But a new smartphone, new tablet, new notebook that is so special, so cool (with friends and business associates). It's sad because without storage all that brilliant content you create, share, show, view would be passing ones, zeros. When you shut down your device...gone! Sure there's new excitement now because of the super sweet SSDs (solid state devices). Finally storage that gives you fast response, performance. Storage that helps your device last a little longer between wall outlets. It's so great it is out to bury hard drives, tape, optical.
Pandora Faces Competition From Apple
Pandora Media Inc. (NYSE:P), the online radio that predicts listener music preferences, is down over 16% in trading this morning, on the news that Apple is planning to develop a competing music streaming service. Apple's potential service would work on its iPhone and iPad, as well as on Mac computers and laptops running Windows, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Content Insider 246 - Same But Different
Millennials Are Individuals, Not Demographics
Now that we can easily get the information, we love to classify people according to one of the many categories the industry has developed over the years -- Boomers, Millennials, teens, pre-teens; white, Asian, Hispanic, African-American; as well as bosses, us, politicians, honest people. Marketers like to have this information because it makes it possible for them to tailor their messages and pitch stuff to you. It's really amazing how much your being online and connected 24x7 produces comprehensive piles of data about who you are, what you do, where you go and what you think about. Guess that's why they call it Big Data.
Northview Church Looks to the Future in HD
Indiana's Northview Church recently set out to launch four new satellite campuses within five years. Construction wise, this is an ambitious goal. Add a massive AV installation to the equation, with the ultimate goal of having an entirely HD operation, and it is an undertaking of biblical proportions. Between two sites, Northview now has a Blackmagic Design Broadcast Videohub, Smart Control, ATEM 1 M/E Production Switcher and ATEM 1 M/E Broadcast Panel, seven SmartView Duo monitors, 11 HyperDeck Studio SSD recorders, four DeckLink HD Extreme 3D capture and playback cards and a whole slew of Mini Converters. And because of the flexibility, affordability and quality of the Blackmagic Design products, Shaun plans to acquire many more as the church continues to grow.
