The Harris Buzz Report is conducted monthly and establishes the levels of buzz surrounding the latest news and product releases within technology, telecoms, media and entertainment. Using three key Buzz metrics, each report examines; the level of awareness and familiarity with each product release or news story, the degree of discussion amongst peers and the scale of excitement it generates.
The April buzz showcased the battle between reality series The Voice and Britain's Got Talent that was, ultimately, too close to call. The Avengers Assemble movie competed against Titanic in the box office as Amazon released the newest Kindle and Google revealed Project Glass.
