Why a national MLS is bad for agents and consumers

Do we need a national MLS system? Compass owner Robert Reffkin recently called for a national MLS system at this winter’s Inman Connect conference in New York. Reffkin stated there shouldn’t be hundreds of MLS’s, but a single one. I couldn’t disagree more. His argument is more and more consumers are going to Zillow or Realtor.com, so for that reason we need to build a single national MLS system. Not only did Reffkin call for a single MLS, he is also calling for a single CRM and mo...

Elon Musk's 'reckless' comment about the capabilities of Tesla's Autopilot could put drivers at risk, an analyst says (TSLA)

Tesla CEO Elon Musk said during the automaker's fourth-quarter earnings call that Autopilot, Tesla's semi-autonomous driver-assistance system, was capable of full autonomy on highways. No auto or tech company has created a fully or semi-autonomous driving system that can operate on the highway without any human attention, Mary Cummings, a professor at Duke who studies the interaction between humans and autonomous driving systems, told Business Insider.

Saudi Arabia denies involvement in leak of Jeff Bezos’ private messages

In his extraordinary Medium post last week accusing American Media Inc of “extortion and blackmail,” Bezos hinted (but did not explicitly state) that there may be a connection between Saudi Arabia and the publication of his personal messages with Lauren Sanchez. Now Saudi Arabia’s minister of foreign affairs has denied it was involved, stating during an interview with CBS’ “Face the Nation” that the Saudi government had “nothing to do with it.” Last month, the National Enquirer published a serie...

Profits at The New York Times show media dinosaurs are ruling the internet

Today’s news that the (failing?) New York Times reported net income of $55.2 million, after losses a year earlier — and that its digital business raked in $709 million — is just one indicator that some of the nation’s oldest media properties are finally crossing the bridge into the 21st century. The Times managed to turn a profit while employing 1,600 journalists — an all-time high. Fourth-quarter digital advertising revenue increased 22.8 percent, while print advertising revenue decreased 10.2 ...

The Super Bowl was a snooze for fans, but there's still nothing like it for advertisers

Hello! Sunday was a letdown for us advertising and media reporters, and it wasn’t just the ads that felt lackluster. It was the lowest-rated Super Bowl in 11 years, with 98.2 million viewers. It speaks to the ongoing erosion of live and linear TV. To wit: For the first time, more people used Netflix (76% of those surveyed) than a pay-TV account (67%) in 2018, according to a new PwC report. The game was streamed across more platforms than ever, according to Super Bowl broadcaster CBS, up 20% fr...

CBS, however, said the big game was watched across all platforms – including digital and streaming – by a combined total of 100.7 million viewers. In addition, the streaming coverage of the game broke new records this year, which helped to make up for the TV audience decline. The network sa...

Advertising Weed Is Tough When the Feds Consider You a Drug Dealer

Facebook, which like Google prohibits marijuana ads, has kicked some weed sellers off Instagram. Earlier this month CBS declined to air a commercial touting the benefits of medical marijuana during the Super Bowl. With a growing number of states legalizing weed for recreational and medical purposes, the U.S. market could surge eight-fold to $80 billion in sales by 2030, according to Cowen & Co. But it’s hard to see that happening unless companies can market their wares the way beer and liquor ...

Tesla wants its factory workers to wear futuristic augmented reality glasses on the assembly line (TSLA)

Tesla patent filings reveal plans for augmented reality glasses to assist with manufacturing.  Factory employees has previously used Google Glass in its factory as recently as 2016.  Tesla's Model 3 might have "biblical simplicity" according to one Wall Street analyst, but building any car still involves hundreds of nuts, bolts, and welds.
