October 16, 2014
Moscow . OREANDA-NEWS. Yota Devices invested only USD 15 million in development and making the first YotaPhone, 1/10th the orginal iPhone cost of development.International companies invest much more in development of their smartphone models. For example, Nokia invested USD 200 million in this in 2012-2013, and development of the original iPhone ended up costing approximately USD 150 million.Yota Devices had approximately 70 people working for it when the first-generation YotaPhone was being developed, enabling the company to make decisions several times faster than the decision-making process at the larger companies. And this certainly helped to cut costs quite substantially. The company explains the difference in smartphone development costs versus the world's major manufacturers by Yota's rational approach to ogsanization of its operations, Lenta.ru reports.Yota Devices also made extensive use of freelancers and consultants, which is far less expensive than paying full-time employees. Altogether, about USD 50 million was invested in organizing the business to develop, set up the production and promotion of two YotaPhone smartphone models.This money was spent to put together an international team, a structure for sales and post-sales service in Russia and overseas. This amount also included the cost of advertising.As a reminder, the first YotaPhone model went on sale in December 2013. Apart from Russia and the CIS, the YotaPhone is available in Spain, Italy, Portugal, France, Austria, the United Kingdom, Germany, Poland, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, and the UAE.Its key distinguishing feature is its two screens, one the conventional LCD screen on the front, and another one based on the E Ink technology.

Nikon D750
October 10, 2014
The Nikon D750 ($2,299.95) is the company's second real effort at making an affordable full-frame D-SLR. It's only $300 more than the D610, but it's much more capable. The D750 uses a 24-megapixel image sensor, but its autofocus system, video recording capabilities, and build quality are equal to that of the 36-megapixel D810. When you add integrated Wi-Fi for remote control and on-the-go file transfer, and a tilting rear display that's a great help for video capture, you've got a camera that is worthy of being called our Editors' Choice. It displaces the Canon EOS 6D as our favorite entry-level full-frame SLR; the 6D has a GPS, which is an expensive add-on for the D750, but its autofocus system and burst capabilities aren't on the same level as the Nikon.

Does online advertising have an image problem?
September 28, 2014
While many believe it is an effective medium, online advertising remains plagued by fraud and low creative standards. By David Benady Critics continue to lam- bast online advertising and highlight its long list of weaknesses that are undermining advertisers' faith in the medium. Yet brands keep increasing their spend on digital ads while new online forms, such as native advertising, are taking off. So is online advertising broken? And, if so, what can be done to repair it? Some say digital display advertising - worth more than £2 billion in the UK last year - has seri- ous problems and that much work needs to be done to improve the medium. It suffers from low click- through rates (0.1 per cent on display ads), widespread click fraud and a seemingly endless stream of poor-quality ads.
