Wheeler made the comments on stage in a Q with C-SPAN Senior Executive Producer Peter Slen, who asked about Wheeler's TV service.Wheeler may be a rarity, as Comcast routinely posts some of the worst customer satisfaction scores in the lowest-rated industry measured by the American Customer Satisfaction Index ACSI .NCTA CEO Michael Powell blasted Wheeler's FCC in a speech at the conference Monday, saying the agency has unleashed a "relentless regulatory assault" on the cable industry without provocation and "without any compelling evidence of harm to consumers or competitors."Powell had criticized a Wheeler proposal designed to make it easier for consumers to watch cable TV channels without renting set-top boxes from cable providers."Those who did not want things to change used government to maintain the status quo to the detriment of consumers, and so the philosophy that I developed coming out of the NCTA is that the job of government is to promote competition and to let consumers enjoy the benefits of that—with the full understanding that those who are the incumbents never like change," Wheeler said today.Wheeler pointed out that he isn't always trying to impose more regulations on cable companies.
In-house IT helpdesks, while generally more familiar with the ins-and-outs of the company s IT set-up and systems, usually require a hefty sum to start and maintain.This would mean added costs due to hiring and training IT experts, which is a rather heavy load for small to mid-sized enterprises SMEs .For people with small to mid-sized businesses, outsourced IT support is generally more cost-effective due to having staff trained to handle a wide variety of IT problems.This helps businesses focus on their niche instead of trying to fiddle with things outside their field of expertise.That being said, if you re considering switching to an outsourced IT support company, here are a number of benefits you can expect from making that decision:Related Article: From IoT to Wearables: The 3 Technology Trends You Need to Watch in 20161.Surges in terms of expenses can paralyze a small company and bog down operations, especially if the in-house IT team fails to keep the company s operations up and running.An outsourced IT support team, on the other hand, apart from being able to solve IT-related problems quicker, can also give you a more consistent and controlled monthly expense that only increases as your company grows.2.Focus on Your Unique Selling PropositionOne of the main reasons why a lot of start-up companies fail is that they don t have a Unique Selling Proposition USP , which is a factor that separates one s company from its competitors, whether it s having the lowest price or being the first of its kind.In a world where one's survival is contingent upon one's relevance, companies have to keep finding new ways to grow and innovate; otherwise, they become redundant and eventually perish.Better SecurityGoing back to point number two, if your company doesn t specialize in IT, then chances are that an in-house IT team, especially at the beginning, will make a few security mistakes that could put your company s sensitive information at risk.Security breaches often come from unscrupulous hackers using a mix of social engineering and other black hat techniques to steal confidential data.A good IT company will have dealt with a wide range of IT-related tasks, and with their comparative wealth of experience in the field, they can locate issues faster and help users get up and running in much less time than you are likely to be able to.5.
For investors in Taiwan s $841 billion stock market, Tim Cook matters more than Tsai Ing-wen.While the ascension of independence-leaning Tsai to the presidency on Friday has sparked concern relations with China will deteriorate, JPMorgan Asset Management and BlackRock Inc. say the bigger risk is the slowdown in the global smartphone business.Apple reported its first quarterly sales decline in 13 years, with Chief Executive Officer Cook acknowledging on April 26 that -- nine years after the iPhone s game-changing debut -- the market had stopped growing.Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. and Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. both reported falling profit last quarter.Investor confidence in Taiwan s stock market reflects "export demand, and by far the dominant export demand factor is electronics and Apple in particular," said Howard Wang, Hong Kong-based head of greater China for JPMorgan Asset Management, which managed $1.7 trillion as of March 31.Pegatron Corp., which assembles iPhones, missed profit expectations and said April sales dived 16 percent.TSMC, one of the largest manufacturers of the application processors that are a mobile device s brains --- cut its 2016 smartphone demand forecast in April.In March, Chinese President Xi Jinping vowed to "resolutely contain Taiwan independence secessionist activities in any form," a warning to Tsai s incoming government.The Communist Party considers the island a province, even though it has been governed separately for more than 66 years, and reserves the right to use force to prevent it from moving toward formal independence."Taiwan having a government that s uninterested in unification with China is nothing new," Chou said, referring to two former presidents who leaned toward independence.She will focus on economic and social issues."
In the first quarter, the value of merger and acquisition deals in the U.S. entertainment, media, and communications sectors totaled $10.4 billion, the lowest value since before 2014.That s the conclusion from PwC s US Entertainment, Media & Communications EMC Deal Insights report.The decline in megadeal amounts started in the second half of 2015.In the two big deals, Dalian Wanda bought a majority stake in Legendary Pictures for an undisclosed amount, and Verizon Communications acquired XO Communications.But PwC said it remains optimistic that there will be an uptick in activity in coming quarters, with recent regulatory clearance for previously announced cable megadeals and the overall macroeconomic environment stabilizing after a volatile start in 2016.Deals in the sector are being driven by industry innovation in the highly dynamic digital ecosystem.Changing consumer demands coupled with rapid technological advancement make it essential for deal makers to seek targets that help deliver the connected experiences consumers want.In film and content, deals were led by film production and distribution studio deals.Chinese and Qatari companies increased their acquisitions, and PwC expects more foreign buyers to come forward in the coming quarters.Deal activity continued to be dominated by Internet media lifestyle and entertainment content properties targeting consumers rather than business-to-business users.In advertising and marketing, deal volumes rebounded from 45 in Q4 2015 to 58 in Q1 2016.PwC expects ad tech to grow more investment and M activity.

It s a plan to gamify healthcare or incent good behavior in a way that the company s founders liken to the good driver discount that conscientious drivers receive on their insurance.The founding data scientist at Propeller Health and the architect of an epidemiological data product at Practice Fusion, had an experience where she walked away from a prescription when she realized it would cost her $150 out of pocket.You do things every day that save the health system money.Companies like GoodRx and Blink Health are also aiming to lower the cost of prescription drugs, but they re aiming to do it across the board, by giving consumers the option to comparison shop in the case of GoodRx or the ability to find the lowest priced drugs online and pick up the prescription at their local pharmacy Blink .Sempre s approach is different, and the founder argues that it s more compelling, because it reduces costs across the board no matter what, and it encourages better behavior from patients in the process.The company routes claims through partnerships with claims adjudicators to reduce costs and gain access to every pharmacy in the U.S.To ensure and encourage compliance with treatment regimes among patients, the company provides prompts via sms and other platforms, with a lot of the management handled by enterprise partners who work with the company s software as a service to take advantage of the data being generated as part of a online platform with dashboards.

The bidding price for Yahoo's core business could be in the range of $2 billion to $3 billion, the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday.That's significantly lower than the $4 billion to $8 billion range a lot of Wall Street analysts were expecting.But soon, CNBC's David Faber disputed those numbers, calling it "completely wrong," and pointed out the reported price would be lower than even the lowest bids Yahoo received in the first round of bidding last month, citing his own sources.Why all the chaos?There are a lot of parties involved in Yahoo's bidding process, so it's hard to point to one simple reason."We think it is unclear as to what is being bid for, and it is important to understand that there are various assets that Yahoo can potentially sell," Peck wrote in a note published Friday.In other words, Yahoo owns a lot of different properties that it could potentially sell as its "core" business, and depending on what each bidder wants as part of its deal, the bidding price could significantly vary.Peck notes that the $2 billion to $3 billion range would only make sense if the bid was just for Yahoo's online advertising business, which includes its online properties.That part of the business is generating roughly $300 million in earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization EBITDA , and with a 5X multiple, which is still lower than the 7X multiple Verizon paid for AOL, Yahoo's internet business would be roughly valued at $1.5 billion.But if you include Yahoo's web intellectual property, which Peck estimates to be in the range of $1 billion to $3 billion, the "core" value would instantly jump.Yahoo could also potentially throw its real estate property and rights to Yahoo Japan royalties, each estimated to be worth roughly $1 billion, into the mix, and the value of the deal would swing all over the place.Yahoo has never defined what exactly it's selling as its "core" business.That's not much of a surprise since Yahoo's running an auction for its various properties and is looking to maximize its return.
Remember Nexus Q, Google's orb shaped media player?Probably not, since the baffling device never shipped after its unveiling at the company's 2012 developers' conference.And Q isn't Google's only IO flop over the years.Now that this years' show has wound down, the folks at Vennage took stock of some of Google's highest highs and lowest lows.It isn't an exhaustive list — for example, there's no mention of Project Ara, the mix-n-match phone concept first revealed in 2013 or some of the other wacky side projects Google has announced — but it's still a fun little reminder that not all the hype ends up paying off, while some products really do make history.Check it out: History of Google I/O Infographic Maker  NOW WATCH: We dare you to oversleep with Dwayne The Rock Johnson s new motivational alarm clock appLoading video...
