Rents are rising in cities across the country, but it’s odd that a New York City report pegs its average rent at $1,167. We look at how the City Comptroller sees things, as opposed to, say, authoritative sources like Zillow. Plus, as TV viewers increasingly divert their attention to their smartphones during commercial breaks, a new service promises to sync up the ad they’re (not) watching on TV with the ads being served to the apps, like Facebook, on their phone. We explain the need, and also dig into just how it works.
