Google acquires video ads company mDialog

In a separate development, Google said the team at wireless company Alpental Technologies had joined it

Google has acquired video advertising company mDialog in a bid to provide more high quality video options to its advertisers.

The Internet giant plans over time to work with the mDialog team to include their technology and expertise into its DoubleClick product suite for advertisers. Nothing will change for mDialog's customers immediately, it added.

In a Google+ post, Google said that it and mDialog are committed to offering more ways for publishers "to monetize live, linear and on-demand video content across all screens." The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

With U.S. headquarters in San Francisco, mDialog works with media companies in North America to manage, deliver, and measure video advertising across a variety of IP-connected devices, including Apple's iPad and iPhone, Android devices and the Xbox, it said on its website.

The company said in a statement on its website that it is joining the DoubleClick team at Google. "Together, we're looking forward to offering content creators new and even better ways to make money from their live and on-demand content," it said.

Separately, Google said it was excited to welcome to the company the team at wireless company Alpental Technologies. A company spokesman said Thursday it wasn't sharing any other details or comments about the deal. Alpental will help Google in its bid to extend fast Internet to remote locations, for which the company already has projects deploying drones, balloons and satellites, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
