Adstoppi Blog | Donald Trump ads will take over YouTube for Election Day

Published by:


YouTube's homepage will feature ads in support of Donald Trump's reelection campaign on election day 2020, Bloomberg reported on Thursday.

Trump's reelection campaign bought out YouTube's masthead ad space for "early November" including election day, November 3, according to Bloomberg. By purchasing this highly trafficked ad space, the Trump campaign is betting that the visibility could aid his candidacy in some of the most important days leading up to the election.

This isn't the first time that the Trump campaign purchased the coveted masthead ads ahead of important election events. Last summer, Trump's reelection campaign spent between $500,000 to $1 million on the ad space ahead of the first Democratic presidential debate in June. The debate was livestreaming on YouTube, and the ads blasted Trump's face and message to potential future Democratic voters. An unusually high number of candidates qualified for that debate, so it was split into two days.

Bloomberg reported Thursday that the YouTube banner is "more akin to a Super Bowl ad" than a traditional targeted ad buy. It's not clear how much Trump's reelection campaign spent on the ad space, but it can cost campaigns more than $1 million a day.

In October 2019, YouTube introduced a specialized tool called Instant Reserve that allowed campaigns to reserve ad space in particular regions on particular days, with an eye towards state primary contests. Starting the following November, that initial release gave candidates the option to buy any times through the end of 2020.

In a unanimous vote, the Federal Communications Commission has moved to block United States telecoms from using critical federal funds to buy Huawei equipment. Under the new rule adopted by the commission, wireless carriers can't use money from the Universal Service Fund (USF) to make purchases from companies deemed national security threats. The fund provides billions of dollars in subsidies for companies to offer wireless service around the country.

Blizzard has just announced Overwatch 2

Published by:

The sequel to its popular team shooter Overwatch, onstage at Blizzcon 2019. The original Overwatch was released over three years ago, and while Blizzard has continued to expand the game with new heroes, maps, and game modes, it hasn’t gotten a major update like this in the lifetime of the game. By adding an actual story mode, the sequel will look to expand on the lore that Blizzard has slowly been building for the Overwatch universe over the past few years with in-game content and elaborate cinematic shorts. The Overwatch 2 announcement movie picks up after the variety of short films that Blizzard has released so far, seeing the heroes of Overwatch facing off against the Null Sector — an invading robot force. Unlike the original game, which was primarily a PvP multiplayer experience,...

Over the past year, trade relations between the United States and China have continued to strain under increased tariffs imposed by the Trump administration. Now, President Trump is shifting his focus toward Mexico, another of the US’s top trade partners, and consumer tech groups are worried. On Thursday, Trump announced that he plans to impose a 5 percent tariff on all imported goods from Mexico as a direct response to the number of unauthorized immigrants who are arriving in the United States via the southern border. The tax will go into effect on June 10th and increase each month, reaching a maximum of 25 percent in October, unless Mexico finds a way to deter illegal migration across the US southern border. In statements on Friday, top tech industry, lobbying, and advocacy groups...

Researchers at MIT have developed a plane capable of flying without any moving parts, reports MIT Technology Review. The feat was achieved using electro-aerodynamic propulsion, which uses a pair of electrodes to push around ions and create ionic wind. The phenomenon has been known about since the 1960s (in fact, Apple even considered using it to cool its laptops back in 2012), but this is the first time it’s been used to propel a plane. That said, this ‘plane’ is an uncrewed model weighing just 2.45 kilograms. Scaling it up to the size of commercial aircraft would give it numerous safety, noise levels, maintenance, and environmental benefits over traditional planes, but doing so comes with enormous challenges. For one, the battery required to supply the necessary 40,000 volts the...

It can be difficult to find time to finish a video game, especially if you only have a few hours a week to play. In our biweekly column Short Play we suggest video games that can be started and finished in a weekend. In a city builder like SimCity or Cities: Skylines, traffic inevitably becomes a point of frustration. Your budding metropolis simply gets too big to handle the congestion. There is usually one intersection where, for some reason, the cars just don’t behave how you want them to. You end up cursing the terrible AI drivers or whatever system manages the traffic lights. But before you tear it all down in an attempt to fix it, there is a moment when you feel like if you had more control over the drivers or maybe the lights, you could make it work.

Apple buys Intel's smartphone modem business

Published by:

Apple will acquire “the majority” of Intel’s smartphone modem business for $1 billion, the two companies announced today. Around 2,200 Intel employees will join Apple, and Apple will acquire IP and equipment from Intel as well. The transaction is expected to close toward the end of the year. Intel won’t be getting out of the modem business entirely. It’ll still be able to develop modems for PCs, Internet of Things devices, autonomous vehicles, and seemingly anything that’s not a smartphone. Intel CEO Bob Swan said the acquisition will allow the company to focus on developing other 5G technologies. The acquisition means that Apple is now well on the way to producing its own 5G modems for its smartphones, rather than having to rely on Qualcomm for the hardware. Apple only...
