... less apparent ways.

​Mr High believes that technology and the Internet of Things [IoT] will advance human abilities, claiming that it would do so in ways that we can't yet imagine.

"When you think about what it was like ten or fifteen years before smartphones, could we have then then imagined the way that these things would impact our lives?

"I suspect that technology will impact us in just as profound a way and even more so than it has so far. I'm not sure we can fully predict how it is going to augment us other than to say that by helping us to overcome our own limitations we are going to start to begin to see the world in a different way and imagine the possibilities in a different way, make choices in a different way and be inspired in ways that people only have a slight hint at understanding now".

It's going to be an extremely remarkable and fun time to live through these changes in society and the potential is going to be great for us."

According to the New York Times, the tech giant is looking to open brick-and-mortar stores to sell home appliances and furniture.

Citing a "person briefed on the discussions" the Times claims that the Seattle-based giant is considering using VR or AR to help customers picture what furniture will look like in situ.

The source has said the shops will have a heavy emphasis on Amazon devices and services like the company's Prime Streaming service and smart speaker Echo.

The concept of bringing VR into a retail environment has been spearheaded by retailers like Lowe's in the US, which in some stores makes use of HTC's Vive headset to show customers how to use its products for home improvements.

Internet Adspend Will Exceed $200bn In 2017

Trend Summary: Global internet advertising expenditure will grow 13% to reach $US205bn in 2017.


According to Zenith’s latest Advertising Expenditure Forecasts, published today, internet advertising will attract 36.9%  of all advertising expenditure, up from ...

Previous Next 

... 34.0% in 2016.

This is the first year in which more money will be spent on internet advertising than advertising on traditional television (the latter totalling $192bn).  

The sheer scale of internet advertising means its growth rate is slowing. Internet adspend grew 17% in 2016, down from 20% in 2015, and Zenith expects growth to slow to 13% in 2017, 12% in 2018 and 10% by 2019 (though it will continue to add US$23bn‐US$24bn a year).

In this environment it is vital that platforms and publishers address advertisers’ valid concerns about viewability and brand safety to secure sustainable growth. As the market matures, advertisers need to know for certain that their ads are being actively viewed by real people in appropriate environments.
