In case you missed it... using design to improve conversions
     Tue, Feb 26 2019 | 5:42P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

In this day and age it's not uncommon to have one or two side jobs in the evenings. Maybe you're clearing out the clutter with FB marketplace, drawing comics for IG and selling books or stickers, promoting your bands' next show or running an online shop that sells your hand made stuff. Like it or not, having a couple jobs is the new norm. Making that second job worthwhile is a tricky endeavor though... It really helps to have a group of peers to lean on, to learn what worked and what didn't, so you can fine tune things.

Case in point: this short article from a designer on how to use conditional logic, visual consistency and little bit of design to improve trust between you and your audience. It's a real-world case study from an advertising perspective, so don't let that scare you. It makes the points, backs them up with numbers and gives you a couple insights you probably never even considered. Think of it as a mini TED talk of the day and I think you'll find it enlightening.

Motherboard makers to see shipments plummet in 1Q19
     Wed, Jan 23 2019 | 6:15P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Reports Digitimes.com.... "Motherboard makers are likely to see their shipments fall dramatically in the first quarter of 2019, due to seasonal factors coupled with lingering sluggish demand from the crypto mining sector, according to industry sources.

The sources noted that worldwide motherboard shipments in 2018 were down over 10% from those in 2017 as demand for hardware upgrade remained weak, while Intel's entry-level and mid-range processors were in serious shortages.

Shipments are expected to continue slipping in 2019, but the decline is likely to be less than 10% with Asustek Computer, Micro-Star International (MSI) and ASRock having a chance of maintaining their volumes at the 2018 levels, the sources said.

Gigabyte Technology, Biostar Microtech International and Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS) are likely to suffer from declines due to high shipment proportions of entry-level products, said the sources.

Vendors' profitability from their motherboard businesses is also expected to slump in 2019, the sources noted.

In 2018, worldwide brand motherboard shipments were around 40 million units with Asustek shipping around 14-15 million, Gigabyte 10 million, MSI six million and ASRock four million.

With demand from the cryptocurrency mining sector plunging, the gaming sector will become the main marketing focus for the vendors in 2019. Nvidia has recently launched its new GeForce RTX 2060 GPU priced starting US$349, while AMD is scheduled to begin promoting its new Radeon VII GPU using TSMC 7nm process in February."

USB Type-C chip prices to fall over 20% in 2019
     Thu, Jan 17 2019 | 9:01A | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
USB Type-C interface devices are increasingly applied to a variety of consumer electronics gadgets, prompting major Taiwan IC design houses to deepen their deployments in related chip solutions. But prices of such chips are likely to fall by over 20% in 2019 due partly to more chipmakers racing to vie for orders with lower quotes and partly to terminal vendors not eager to stockpile inventories amid the loosening of tight foundry capacity supply, according to industry sources.

Posted by: STAFF
Gigabyte Technology may swing to net loss in the fourth quarter of 2018 as the company as a result of massive inventory losses, according to some market watchers.
