Shopping Around For Cheap Prices [Not Mobile Payments] Is The Most Popular In-Store Activity Among Mobile Users, Says Google | TechCrunch

Shopping Around For Cheap Prices [Not Mobile Payments] Is The Most Popular In-Store Activity Among Mobile Users, Says Google | TechCrunch | technology | Scoop.it

Most people may not yet be using smartphones to pay for goods when they are out shopping, but that doesn’t mean that they are not glued to their handsets anyway.

 

Some research out today from Google indicates that among smartphone owners, some 79% can be classified as “mobile shoppers,” using their devices for some aspect of the shopping experience, from finding store locations through to finding goods. On top of that, among those who use smartphones for any kind of shopping or browsing, some 84% do so in physical stores. And when it comes to investing in experiences that consumers like, retailers should stick to mobile web sites: 65% of consumers prefer these to apps.

Wilson rolls out smart football, just in time for Super Bowl

Wilson rolls out smart football, just in time for Super Bowl | technology | Scoop.it
Wilson Sporting Goods is working on a smart football geared for a generation of players who’ve thrown more passes in the “Madden NFL” video game than they have in their backyards. The Wilson X is an ordinary football on the outside, but at its heart is a motion sensor that tracks spin, velocity, distance and whether the ball wobbles. “That’s where we’re going with connected products and this is just the tip of the iceberg,” said Bob Thurman, vice president of innovation for the Chicago company, a unit of Amer Sports of Finland. [...] Wilson believes buyers will be attracted to the smart ball’s potential as a training tool for young quarterbacks who want to be the next Peyton Manning, or the ball’s ability to add another dimension to a simple game of catch. The basic app that will come with the Wilson X spits out a quarterback rating based on the ball’s rate of spin, the speed and distance of the throw and whether the spiral is tight or wobbly. Other app game modes can turn a simple game of catch in the backyard into a challenge to move down a virtual field to score a touchdown with seconds remaining in a game. The smart football will attempt to carve out a piece of the traditional football market, which saw $48 million in U.S. sales in 2014, a 10 percent increase in the past five years, according to the National Sporting Goods Association.
