4G LTE In Israel, The Shoemaker Sons needs Shoes

March 12, 2012

According to Haaretz Communications Minister Moshe Kahlon appointed a committee to start pending the rules for the 4G LTE Auction.  The auction will be worth about .5B NIS based on licenses of 140M NIS each.

Israel has always been an exporter of communications and its understandable to be slow to innovate on wireless standards.  As we have seen from WiMAX the cost of being first is often being off on a tangent.

However with 4G LTE being so essential to development in other countries and with companies like Siklu looking to catch the attention of deployers.  It would be nice to find a way for the Ministry to enable some alternate strategies particular some innovations in architecture.

I believe the base stations and small cells need a lot of innovation to match not only demand but the probable need for alternate access methods.

Its time for the Shoemaker to focus on his son and Israel to display by deploying at home.

Apple the Turtle continues to Beat the Industry

March 8, 2012

The iPad 3.0 has arrived with incremental features and a community of loyal Apple customer ready to toss 1 & 2 for 3 as if they were a 1982 Kaypro.  Pretty amazing.

As Jeff Orr of ABI Research stated in there press release

“Individually, none of the new iPad features create an insurmountable advantage for Apple over its competition,” says Jeff Orr,  group director, consumer research. ASUS is currently shipping a quad-core tablet and even Chinese vendor Huawei announced one last week.

March 6, 2012

According to the Washington Post today Verizon Wireless is offering an alternative home access service for $60 a month and 30GB service for $120 a month. 

The most important aspect of this service is that it finally breaks the cross elastics that the carriers have been using for their MiFi services.  Embedded in the pricing of the MiFi services was equivalent rate to a T1.  If you did the price analysis it was there in black in white. 

If You Can't Trust your Certs....Tales from GitHub

March 6, 2012

Once again we have discovered that PublicKeys can be thwarted and in this case the victim was GitHub.  Now I have to tell you,  I am constantly asked to run a security event.  And the reality is that I have security training, but no one wants to admit that they need it.  Especially a place that supports open source. 

Is YHOO try to be a Yahooligan with Facebook?

March 5, 2012

So far Scott Thompson has not been catching the stock markets fancy with YHOO.  Perhaps proving that Yahoo! is really a Californian company it has joined all the patent infringement strategies and is bring suit against Facebook.

Ironically the infringements are based on the acquisition of GeoCities years back.  As you know the patent wars have already caused Google to purchase Motorola Mobility and several others to build an arsenal. 

Interestingly we have yet to see Scott Thompson bring to bear a mobile payment strategy which I would have hoped to see at Mobile World Congress. 



Ron Johnson Brings in Apple's Laurie Beja Miller to JCP

March 5, 2012

The Genius Bar was lowered at Apple when Laurie Beja Miller departure to JCPenny.  Ron Johnson the man who Jobs worked with to create the Apple Store experience has brought in Ms Miller to "create a town square" feeling to the department store.

If you have not noticed Ellen Degeneres  doing all these commercials for 'JCP' the rebranded JC Penny, you probably turned off their pre superbowl adds with all the customer's screaming "Noooooo" as the stores posted their after Christmas pricing. 

The bottom line is we are going to get a very fresh look at retailing at JCP and its worthwhile to walk in to see where the changes are taking them.

Yelp's IPO needs some Review

March 2, 2012

Perhaps we have a bubble again.  Perhaps the community of Yelp Reviewers are betting on their experience rather than the finances.
Yelp as an IPO has the feel of a drug that could get sued over a side effect that happens in almost 100% of all cases.

The Yelp Financials suggest that they are going to bleed cash without a growth strategy to solve their operational woes. 

Something about has made the stock go up today on the first day of trading.

The only thing I can think of is they need to be acquired, but the stock that has been released is not enough to get any trade outs.  So at the end of the day they are either going to be a minnow looking for whales to swallow or happy to be a pilot fish.
