Every store and phone carrier offers holiday deals on their smartphones. It’s a good time to buy yourself a phone, but should you buy one for someone else? Like buying someone a puppy, that’s a complicated question. Big-ticket electronics are popular holiday gifts because stores tend to drop prices by a lot for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and prices stay low through the holiday season. If someone on your list is in the market for a game console, laptop, tablet or e-reader, this is the perfect time of year to save on them. Smartphones, however, are a different story. Stores love to advertise phones as a great gift idea, and offer buy-one-get-one-free deals or discounts when you sign up a new line. However, our phones are deeply personal devices. Someone might dislike a particular phone because it doesn’t fit in their pocket, because it doesn’t work on the right carrier, or even because it’s not the right color. Buying the right phone for someone else can … [Read more...] about Should you buy someone a phone for the holidays?
All it took was a tweet. In a recent Twitter post, Fox News host Laura Ingraham mocked Parkland high school shooting survivor David Hogg and within a few days dozens of advertisers, including prominent Twin Cities companies, dropped their ads from her show. The controversy highlighted how advertisers and their agencies are being forced to remain vigilant about ad placement even while the process of media buying is more automated and data-driven. As digital media has risen over the past two decades, advertising has become more focused on precision and measurable ad views, under the belief that data meant easier access to customers. For decades, traditional media like newspapers, radio and TV could only tell advertisers broad information about their audiences. But with the help of software and algorithms, digital media offered advertisers information virtually down to the person, allowing them to target their messages more effectively. Better precision hasn't eliminated risks, however, … [Read more...] about As technology made it simpler to buy ads, the prospect of controversy forces advertisers to be cautious

Speaking to reporters at the White House, Trump promised that the administration would allow E15 fuel — a gasoline mixture that's 15 percent ethanol — to be sold year-round. It's a topic that rises nearly every summer, when EPA regulations mandate gas stations to swap out gasoline mixes with higher levels of ethanol for lower levels in order to comply with Environmental Protection Agency regulations that limit ground-level ozone. Current policies limit the sale of E15 in summer months because the fuel is more toxic. "We’re going to raise it up to 15 percent and raise it to a 12-month … [Read more...] about Trump signals support for changing summer ethanol policy
