  1. In 2014, mobile advertising will grow up

    The adage over the past several years has been that analog dollars become digital dimes, which then become mobile pennies. In 2013, mobile ad spending reached an estimated $8 billion to $10 to billion in the U.S., which is nearly double the 2012 total, but still a mere fraction of the $100 billion total Internet ad market. As attention shifts away from the desktop, mobile advertising has lot of catching up to do.
