Kevin: A report from tablet pioneer Roger Fidler looking at mobile media device use in the US. "Nearly 70 percent of mobile media device owners routinely used two or more mobile media devices. Sixty percent of all smartphone owners used at least one other mobile media device. More than half (51%) of all large media tablet owners also used an Apple iPhone. Among smartphone owners who used one or more additional mobile media devices, 44% owned an Apple iPhone, 37% owned a variety of Android-powered smartphone brands, 14% owned a Blackberry, and about 5% owned some other brand. The following table summarizes responses in each device category."

Kevin: PwC looks at entertainment and media through 2016 with a number of predictions.

Kevin: A good quick list of how to make your site fast and accessible globally, whether it's using CDN's to make sure that your site or service is fast no matter where your users are in the world or making sure that your shopping cart works with currencies globally.

Kevin: James Robinson at The Guardian has a good summary of an OECD report looking at newspaper circulation trends around the world. The US and the UK top the table in terms of circulation declines, with 30% and 25% declines respectively since 2007. A few things that stand out in the survey is that US newspapers had an extremely high exposure to the advertising market. On average 87% of their revenue came from advertising. It helps explains why the recession has hit US newspapers so hard. It's a good summary, and the report itself is worth reading as well.
