Apparently they’ve now accepted the fact that phone books are dying off and “in my opinion” only 10-20% effective due to the impact of digital and print directory saturation. It has been said by some that Yellow Pages usage stats are likely wrong . Local Business Information references according to TMPDM (the largest “phone book ad placing agency” in the U.S.) I assume that if the number was 28% in 2009, then in 2010 in a digital urban marketplace like Dallas – Fort Worth it will be sub 25%? Sounds fair? I still see a bit of lip-service with the SuperGuarantee (’s Service ...
It is played by blowing air into it or drawing air out by placing lips over individual holes (reed chambers) or multiple holes. The pressure caused by blowing or drawing air into the reed chambers causes a reed or multiple reeds to vibrate up and down creating sound. Each chamber has multiple, variable-tuned brass or bronze reeds , which are secured at one end and loose on the other end, with the loose end vibrating and creating sound. Reeds are pre-tuned to individual tones, and each tone is determined according to the size of reed. Longer reeds make deep, low sounds and short reeds make higher-pitched sounds. On certain types ...

so that I can quickly scan the headlines and in some cases, the first bits of content for items of interest. Of those 200 items, I probably scan the body content of about 75. Of those 75, I probably read between 15 and 25. Of those, I probably am compelled to comment on 2-10 items. We all want to figure out the secret sauce for getting more traffic to our content. The problem with only counting page views is, just because someone lands on a page of our site, doesn’t mean they are reading everything.

Startup Competitive Advantages that Work
When I meet an angel investor, he may ask: "What if a big company copies your idea and develops the same website as yours after your website goes public?" How can I answer this question? No, the question is: What are doing now knowing that a big company will copy your idea? No, wait, the real question is: What are you going to do when another smart, scrappy startup copies it, and gets $10m in funding, and is thrice featured on TechCrunch? No, wait, I'm sorry, the real question is: What are you going to do when there are four totally free, open-source competitors? No wait, I forgot, actually the question is: What ... market research, surveys and trends


Your Idea Sucks, Now Go Do It Anyway — building43
“My idea isn’t good enough yet” explained a friend who is thinking of starting his own company. He’s waiting for the idea to be completely fleshed out before taking the leap. Newsflash: Your idea probably sucks, and it doesn’t matter because your business will probably turn out to be something completely different. Sounds wrong?  Let’s see. In 1998, a company received $4.8 million in funding to “beam money between Palm Pilots.”  I’ll code-name this product: MoneyBeamer. Here’s the pitch. Alice wants to give Bob some money, but Alice doesn’t have cash or her ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Ezra Klein: Three Million HSA Users Can Be Wrong
there are plenty of proposals Bush could make that would be pretty popular among people who already use HSAs. For example: increasing the contribution limit; expanding the range of services covered by HSAs to include things like hearing aids and maternity care (which isn't covered by many plans); allowing money to be withdrawn for nonmedical purposes after age 65 (or even better, 55); and so forth. My point here is mainly a political one. Fighting HSAs on philosophical grounds is one thing, but people who already use them would be pretty pleased to see some concrete, money-saving improvements to HSAs — and wouldn't ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Raja Bell shows misplaced priorities by selecting Utah over the Lakers
can go back to hating each other again. Despite Bryant's plan to meet with him Wednesday and persuade Bell to join the Lakers, he instead chose Utah. The decision clearly shows that Bell values money and stability, rather than getting a shot at winning the title. Bell accepted a three-year offer reportedly worth $10 million , and the Lakers can offer no more than the $1.77 million remaining on their mid-level exception. I don't have a problem with players looking out for their long-term future, particularly with a possible lockout looming after the 2010-11 season. But this is a different circumstance. A season ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Pop pundit: Challenging popular opinion
I didn't cry in "Toy Story 3." The remainder of the audience in the movie theater was teary-eyed during the last 15 minutes of the film, but aside from a full bladder resulting from a jumbo soda, I was dry as a bone. And I didn't care for Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy all that much, either. But wait, don't break out the pitchforks and torches just yet because I am not a monster. As it happens, I enjoyed "Toy Story 3," but don't consider it tear-inducing or all that "great." And the first installment of Millennium, "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" was a ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Steve Jobs and Jeff Bezos meet "Ginger" - HBS Working Knowledge
Steve Kemper was given complete behind-the-scenes access to Dean Kamen and the Segway design team during development of the much-hyped "human transporter." The result: A new book, Code Name Ginger . Here's an excerpt. �Ed. Evidently, he's always late, said Aileen Lee, John Doerr's associate. It was almost 8:30 A.M., half an hour after the meeting was supposed to start, and everyone in the locked and guarded ballroom was still waiting for Steve Jobs. The December 8 meeting at the Hyatt Regency near the San Francisco airport had been Doerr's idea. He wanted Dean to brainstorm about Ginger with him and ...
"No Moonlighting" clause advice needed... | Ask MetaFilter
I currently work as a full-time, salaried employee of a medium-size corporation. In my employee handbook, there is a clause that says, in a nutshell, "No moonlighting without advance written permission from HR and your departmental VP." In the 5 or so years that I've worked for this company, this clause wasn't something I had to worry about. Recently, however, I've decided that I want to write a book. The book I'd like to write will cover techie-type stuff, will be directly related to the work I do for this company, and peripherally related to the company's primary business activity. For what it's ...
