    on March 26, 2019 at 1:44 am

    McDonald's Corp., in its largest acquisition in 20 years, is buying a decision-logic technology company to better personalize menus in its digital push.The world's biggest restaurant chain is spending more than $300 million on Dynamic Yield Ltd., according to a person familiar with the matter. With the new technology, McDonald's restaurants can vary their electronic menu boards' display of items, depending on factors such as the weather -- more coffee on cold days and McFlurries on hot days, for example -- and the time of day or regional preferences. The menus will also suggest add-on items to customers.Since taking the helm in 2015, Chief Executive Officer Steve Easterbrook has pushed technology -- including self-order kiosks, digital menus boards and delivery -- to boost sales and help McDonald's stand out among rivals. Since McDonald's seldom carries out acquisitions, the purchase of Dynamic Yield shows the company's desire to leverage technology to speed growth in the fiercely competitive restaurant industry.

  • Apple reveals a news service and shows its ambivalence to ads
    by glsoane@adage.com (Garett Sloane) on March 25, 2019 at 11:00 pm

    Apple's string of new subscription services pushes advertising mostly out of the picture -- but for the magazine industry that is a major partner in Apple's expanded news offering, there will be ads nonetheless.Apple on Monday revealed Apple News Plus and the Apple TV Plus video streaming service, both billed as premium media offerings that are different because they do not track consumers or sell their attention for ads. "This is a different approach than others have taken," said Apple CEO Tim Cook, who was referencing rivals like Facebook and Google, whose businesses depend on consumer data collection and advertising.When Apple executives showed off Apple News Plus, a new subscription magazine service, the focus was on 300 glossy magazines but not the ad experience. "I love the feeling of being at the newsstand with all those beautiful and thought-provoking magazines covering so many topics," Cook says. Continue reading at AdAge.com […]
