Digital Right to Repair Coalition warns repair monopolies are pervasive and unavoidable | ZDNet

Digital Right to Repair Coalition warns repair monopolies are pervasive and unavoidable | ZDNet

The Digital Right to Repair Coalition, also known as Repair.org, has raised concerns that repair monopolies for high-tech equipment have become the norm.

"It has been our experience since 2010 -- as reported by our members in their daily work -- that the vast majority of technology-enabled new products available today are repair-monopolised. We know this because our members are part of the worldwide network of technology repair businesses that support OEMs and independents alike," Repair.org executive director Gay Gordon-Byrne stated in a submission [PDF] to the Australian Productivity Commission.

"Repair monopolised products now include nearly all cell phones and internet communications equipment, all consumer electronics including all TVs, IOT devices, and home appliances … repair monopolies are so pervasive that for many categories of equipment, it is no longer possible to avoid monopolies through better product selection.

"Competition for repair outside of the OEM no longer exists other than for a few very commoditised products such as laptops and desktops built using open-source software and commodity parts … one can either fix the things that belong to them, or one cannot."

Meanwhile, the Australia and New Zealand Recycling Platform (ANZRP) has cautioned the Productivity Commission that while using GPS trackers would be a practical solution to ensure that collected e-waste ends up at the intended recycling facility, existing surveillance legislation needed to also be considered.

Turn off, turn on: Simple step can thwart top phone hackers

Turn off, turn on: Simple step can thwart top phone hackers

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — As a member of the secretive Senate Intelligence Committee, Sen. Angus King has reason to worry about hackers. At a briefing by security staff this year, he said he got some advice on how to help keep his cellphone secure.

Step One: Turn off phone.

Step Two: Turn it back on.

That’s it. At a time of widespread digital insecurity it turns out that the oldest and simplest computer fix there is — turning a device off then back on again — can thwart hackers from stealing information from smartphones.

Regularly rebooting phones won’t stop the army of cybercriminals or spy-for-hire firms that have sowed chaos and doubt about the ability to keep any information safe and private in our digital lives. But it can make even the most sophisticated hackers work harder to maintain access and steal data from a phone.

How To Save Time Planning and Creating Social Media Content

How To Save Time Planning and Creating Social Media Content

There’s no denying that content creation is time-consuming. You have to think of what to post, create a graphic, write a caption, choose hashtags, post the content, and engage with your audience in the comments—and then do it all again, and again, and again.

While the challenges of social media content creation may feel daunting, showing up consistently has big benefits for your business. By posting valuable content consistently, you can:

Grow your audienceIncrease brand awarenessBuild authority in your industryImprove engagement

If you are looking to achieve any of the benefits listed above, it is worth figuring out a sustainable strategy for saving time planning and creating social media content. The key to achieving this is twofold—planning in advance and batch working content creation.

Multitasking—A Cautionary Tale

Let’s take a moment to talk about something we all do—multitasking. Multitasking often feels productive because you are doing “all the things”, but in reality, multitasking is one of the least productive things you can do.

It has been estimated that only 2% of the population is actually proficient at multitasking. When you switch from task to task, it actually takes 50% longer to accomplish a task. (John Medina, Brain Rules).

Think Email Marketing Is Dead? You’re Dead Wrong

Think Email Marketing Is Dead? You’re Dead Wrong

If you're just setting out on the rocky road of marketing your small business, you'll quickly trip over advanced concepts: artificial intelligence (AI)-powered segmentation, omnichannel marketing automation, or SMS and social media marketing, for a few. And these are all effective tools for diligent digital promotion. But one of the most effective tools—and a perfect place for beginners to start—is email marketing.

Email marketing remains at the core of most digital-marketing tool suites, even though it's been around for almost as long as email itself. But despite its age, the channel has kept up with the times and remains a top way to reach your customers. EmailToolTesters recently compiled a study of the most current email-marketing strategies and trends based on data from Techjury, Statista, Content Marketing Institute, Salecycle, Blog HubSpot, Klaviyo, Campaign Monitor, GetResponse, and Constant Contact.

Even though you have several new ways to connect with customers—particularly social media—the study found that the email channel still has a massive reach with 4.3 billion people using email and more than 361.6 billion emails flitting around every day. If you think that sounds like a firehose of bits in which your emails will probably get lost, you'd be wrong. The study showed that email-marketing ROI is currently calculated to be 4,400%, or about $44 return on every dollar you spend in your marketing campaign.

The study also had some interesting statistics on strategy. For example, as far as what kinds of emails get the best return, which generally refers to how many of them are actually opened by potential customers, welcome emails top the list with a hefty 82.21% open rate. The next best were triggered emails, which came in at 44.07%. Unfortunately, the email type that's most popular with smaller businesses, because it's easier to create and provides value-added content to your audience, is the email newsletter. According to the study, these emails have the lowest open rate, at 20.48%.

But the study is quick to point out that you shouldn't ignore newsletters. There are several ways to increase the effectiveness of any kind of email content, especially newsletters, including personalization and autoresponders. Another way is by optimizing your email for the most popular email readers—those from Apple, Google, and Microsoft—and doing so not only for desktop users but also for the fast-growing number of mobile users.
