Motley Fool analyst Rex Moore was at the event and chatted with Akamai's (NASDAQ:AKAM) Kris Alexander about how so-called "couch commerce" is opening up new revenue streams for retailers, advertisers, and programmers.

In this segment, Kris talks about the explosion of connected devices such as Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPads and Google's (NASDAQ:GOOGL) Android tablets, and what it means for second-screen commerce.
