Under a “Hosted Technology Group” program, IDG will set up a LinkedIn group based on any number of IT market verticals, such as virtualization, mobile, cloud computing, and so on. Marketers can sign on for a one-year exclusive sponsorship of the group. Services include a dedicated IDG group manager, daily content, curated and managed discussion topics, ad placements and client-originated content marketing opportunities. A “Custom Technology Group” program is similar to the Hosted Technology offering but lasts for six months and lets the sponsor take the lead on content and topic. This program will likely be used for a client’s specific marketing campaign rather than being tethered to a broader tech vertical community. For its part, LinkedIn will be responsible for promotion, content distribution and member recruitment.Charles Lee, senior vice president, marketing services and custom solutions at IDG, declined to offer specific terms of the partnership, but both parties share in sponsor revenue. “IDG and LinkedIn both recognize revenue that aligns to their respective services included in the program,” he says. “We do not disclose pricing, but both social marketing packages are in line and competitive with each of IDG’s and LinkedIn’s individual services.”Both programs guarantee a certain engagement volume as well as group members. “Programs include guaranteed discussion posts, content volume, commenting activity, and group joins,” says Lee. “Sponsors get exclusive sponsor attribution, branding, and exclusive ability to control all elements of the right rail including display ads, videos, slideshare presentations and resource library.”LinkedIn’s built-in ability to target specific executive and industry segments should be watched closely by b-to-b media companies. IDG is jumping in just as LinkedIn is adding to its content services. It expanded its channel categories in May, allowing members to better tailor their homepage content streams. And in April, LinkedIn bought content curation platform Pulse. “Our vision for content is that LinkedIn will be the definitive professional publishing platform, and Pulse is a perfect complement to this vision,” said Deep Nishar, LinkedIn’s senior vice presdient of products and user experience, at the time. See Also: Q&A: LinkedIn’s Executive Editor Dan RothIn the meantime, LinkedIn is going to need content to feed to its membership segments, and IDG has stepped into that void, both as a way to feature its brands, foster discussion around them and leverage their content for marketing services opportunities. IDG is getting in early with LinkedIn’s content development efforts by expanding its partnership with the b-to-b social media platform. IDG Enterprise’s Custom Solutions group and IDG’s media brands, including Computerworld, InfoWorld, CIO and CSO, are developing LinkedIn groups to provide targeted marketing opportunities for b-to-b brand marketers.IDG set up a CIO Forum on LinkedIn several years ago, which now includes more than 50,000 IT members. This new partnership expands that concept into a more custom marketing services type of arrangement. The company will be offering two different sponsored group options that will use IDG media brand content as well as group management services.

TEWKSBURY, MA — John James “Jack” Whitman, age 72, a well known member of the community, especially known for his great humor and wit, died unexpectedly on Thursday, May 16, at Lowell General, after a courageous, decades long, battle with diabetes. He was beloved husband and “best friend” of Ellen C. (Doucette) Whitman, with whom he had joyfully celebrated a fifty-first wedding anniversary this past February 10th.He was born in Medford in August 1946, one of four children of the late John J. and Catherine (Dillon) Whitman, and raised in Tewksbury. Jack worked in sales, and retired as the New England Sales Manager for Sunshine Biscuit Company.Jack was a faithful member of the Tewksbury-Wilmington Elks Lodge, and worked his way through the chairs to serve as Exaulted Ruler of the Lodge in 1976. He loved the Red Sox, the Bruins, and the Pat’s. But Jack will be best remembered for his incredible sense of humor. He loved a good joke. He delighted in sharing them with a catalogue quality recall of great jokes, stories and one-liners. “Pulling your leg,” was Jack’s forte, and nobody walked away from a conversation with Jack without a smile.Besides his wife, he leaves three beloved children, Jeffrey Whitman and his wife Lynnette (Blanchard) of Westford, David Jon “D.J.” Whitman and his wife Sherrie (Fairbanks) of Middleton, and Allyson Armstrong and her husband Chris of Tewksbury; eight adored grandchildren, Jasmine Whitman of Newfield, NH, Jack Whitman of Westford, James Whitman and Ava Whitman of Middleton, Kaylie, Riley, Cassie and Cara Armstrong of Tewksbury; two devoted sisters, Lois Sheehan and her husband Richard and June Fowler and her husband Robert all of Tewksbury; his sister-in-law Pauline (Doucette) Barry and husband Connie of Chelmsford; his brother-in-law Arthur Doucette and wife Deborah of Panama City Beach, Florida; brother-in-law Dana Doucette and wife Debbie of Methuen; his lifelong friend, Jack Canty of Rye, NH; numerous nieces and nephews. Jack was predeceased by his sister, the late Arline Whitman.Services are pending.

The driver’s services include movie times and tickets from Atom Tickets, in-dash gas purchases at Chevron and Phillips 66 stations, food and drink orders at Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf or via Grubhub, and location sharing via Glympse, all paid for with a stored Visa, MasterCard or Paypal authorization. The depiction of an older driver in Honda’s Dream Drive press materials is prescient: It’s less likely that younger drivers will embrace a set of services and merchants that a carmaker thinks make sense. Honda The passenger services are a little more inventive, including some form of mixed reality gameplay related to the vehicle’s journey, original comics with Honda-exclusive story lines from DC Comics, media from Lego and recommendations from AAA of interesting or useful things along your route. And, of course, there will be merchants whose stuff you can buy in a sort of virtual mall with points earned by driving your Honda. That takes a page from the credit card loyalty playbook with its catalogs of partner merchandise, the value of which is always hard to determine thanks to obscure points-to-dollar translations.Custom content from the likes of DC Comics is an interesting wrinkle in the in-car services game, which mostly consists of warmed-over offerings that already saturate the phone. Honda Sounds like a lot of distraction? Well, that happens when you introduce commerce and rich media to the car, but Dream Drive’s admittedly clean interface and the use of voice should keep distraction to a manageable level. Interestingly, the voice command will not be Amazon, Google or Apple but Honda’s own in-car platform. That feels like a page from the year 2010 to me, but I’m open to be wowed by a voice platform that can really excel when limited to a narrow universe. Route enrichment services in Honda Dream Drive will include some level of mixed-reality entertainment, as well as recommendations from AAA. The former is cutting edge, the latter a bit staid. Honda Dream Drive is currently in beta testing and I think the better part of valor would be spending time to hone near-perfect voice support, elegantly integrated merchants that feel top-tier, and services that get me all the way there, not just part of the way. That goes for any carmaker embarking on in-vehicle commerce, not just Honda and GM. Roadshow We aren’t even close to having fully autonomous cars yet, but the march toward in-car commerce has already begun, with Honda’s Dream Drive platform as the latest evidence.Dream Drive is a set of cloud services in the car divided into relevant groups for drivers or passengers. It’s similar to GM’s Marketplace but broader and more ambitious.

0 Meet Blake Crouch. Sarah Tew/CNET Blake Crouch likes messing with your mind. Whether in the Wayward Pines trilogy (recently adapted as a TV series), Good Behavior (also a TV series), or the critical gem Dark Matter (in the works as a film), his characters encounter moral dilemmas, often with a sci-fi twist. Recursion, his latest novel, takes things deeper, mixing elements of a police procedural with time travel, alternative universes and just a bit of mad scientist menace. Naturally, it’s already being developed by Shona Rhimes for Netflix.My colleague David Carnoy, author of several mystery novels, joins in for this episode of Book Club, while Scott was out of town.

PM Modi begins address to the nation.Twitter/ANIPrime Minister Narendra Modi kept the entire country on tenterhooks for almost an hour after he announced on Twitter that he be addressing the nation on Wednesday. This sparked off many debates on what he will be speaking about with defence and security being a popular option. Many even thought that the PM was going to announce another demonetisation. However, when PM Modi finally addressed the nation, he announced that India has become a space superpower along with the United States, Russia and China. The country’s wait and what we can call a very anti-climatic address sparked many Twitter reactions.The best tweets are listed below. Well done DRDO, extremely proud of your work.

HD Kumaraswamy and Yash.PR HandoutThe battle for the Mandya Lok Sabha seat is heating up with Sumalatha’s supporters and the JD(S) leaders engaging in a war-of-words. People from both sides are using every opportunity to score points over each other. After Nikhil Kumaraswamy mocked Yash’s house-rent issue which recently created a controversy, the latter has now apparently taken digs at the Chief Minister’s two marriages.During his campaign at Ambarahalli, Yash told a TV channel that people should not mistake people’s innocence to ignorance. “If we assume that people are fools, they will give a befitting reply,” he said while stating that the people of Mandya know who is the wife of late actor-turned-politician Ambareesh.”Sumalatha is the only wife of Ambareesh and there is no confusion in it,” Yash pointed out, an oblique reference to HD Kumaraswamy’s two marriages.Anitha Kumaraswamy, the MLA from the Ramanagara constituency, is the wife of HD Kumaraswamy. He is allegedly also married to actress Radhika Shetty. There have enough photos of the Karnataka Chief Minister with the actress that indicate their relationship. However, they have never admitted it in open. Kumaraswamy with his wife Radhika.Radhika Kumaraswamy Facebook PageIn 2011, a public interest litigation was filed for his disqualification from the Ramanagara MP seat for violating the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955. But the High Court had dismissed the plea for failing to produce necessary documents in support of the allegations.Apart from Sumalatha Ambareesh, there are two others with the name ‘Sumalatha’ who are contesting in the Mandya Lok Sabha election. Sumalatha and BJP have alleged the JD(S) is using such a trick to confuse the people in a bid to ensure Nikhil Kumaraswamy’s victory.

COPY LINKAD Loading … Close Telcos in India created panic among mobile users when they decided to disconnect incoming calls with low balance. With that, users started looking for the best prepaid plans with incoming and outgoing calling facility to avoid disruption. For subscribers with two SIM cards, one mainly for data purposes, finding affordable calling plans can be a challenging task.Reliance Jio offers the best data plans, and most users use Jio SIM card as a secondary one in addition to Airtel or Vodafone. So finding just voice call plans that even extend the validity of incoming calls on the primary number makes sense for many.Most telcos offer exciting plans that fulfil various needs of subscribers, including daily high-speed data, unlimited calls and texts. Below you can find the best long-term prepaid calling plans from all major carriers in India, so you do not have to lose your primary number to temporary suspension.AirtelShortly after suspending incoming calls for not maintaining a minimum balance, Airtel introduced Rs 100 and Rs 500 plans that offer lifetime incoming validity alongside 28 days outgoing validity. With the recharge Rs 100, subscribers get Rs 81.75 talk time and with Rs 500, Airtel offers Rs 420 worth talk time. Both these plans do not offer any data benefits, for which users can look at the wide range of prepaid plans at easy disposal. Airtel prepaid plansDIBYANGSHU SARKAR/AFP/Getty ImagesVodafone IdeaLike Airtel, Vodafone has plenty of prepaid plans to suit different needs of subscribers. For those who are more focused on calling than data, there’s a new Rs 999 tariff, which gives subscribers unlimited voice calling, 100 SMS per day and 12GB data for a period of one year. This plan is valid only in Punjab circle, but it’s only a matter of time before Vodafone rolls out to other regions.Separately, Vodafone has Rs 597 plan that gives users 10GB data, 100 SMS per day and unlimited calling for a period of 112 days and the same plan for feature phones extends the validity to 168 days. Vodafone prepaid plansReuters/file photoFor a wide range of prepaid plans with unlimited calls, data and more, visit Vodafone’s official website.BSNLSeeing the competition up to the game, BSNL also rolled out a new prepaid plan focused on voice calls. The state-run telco is offering unlimited local, STD and roaming call for a period of six months with the recharge of Rs 599.Reliance JioReliance Jio doesn’t have a prepaid plan that focuses solely on calls. But the cheap tariffs bundle calls and data and still manages to compete with rivals. There are several long-term prepaid plans under Jio, but the best ones are for Rs 399 with 84 days validity, 1.5GB data per day and Rs 1,699 with one-year validity and 1.5GB data per day. Subscribers can look for various offers with 2GB data per day and up to 5GB data per day. Airtel vs Reliance Jio: Which network is faster in India?
