Smarter Ads

October 24, 2011

One thing about On-Demand Prime Time TV that drives me nuts is the way the ads are repeated and driven into your head like a nail via a hammer. OUCH! The ads aren't even good.

My email box since before ITEXPO has been filled with PR firms emailing me press releases.

Some Have Reached The Peak

October 21, 2011

I had a conversation yesterday with a friend from UHC. She mentioned that VISA is worried about its profitability on just the $0.24 federal max per debit card transaction. Here's the problem the American economy faces: We Peaked Already.  Period.

Globally, America is in a battle for good jobs, natural resources, oil, and soon clean water.

Business is Still Happening

October 19, 2011

Despite all the bad news, bad politics, financial collapse and more, at the end of the quarter business is still getting done. People are still buying stuff.

For example, Juliana Kenny reports that Yahoo! still hit earnings expectations even with firing their CEO.

Stranded Assets

October 18, 2011

Last week, FISPA had a skype video call with the FCC. The first part was with Lisa Gelb of the Wireline Competition Bureau. She gave us a perspective on the Decline of the PSTN. There has been a 34% decline in wireline as consumers swicth from the fixed network and migration to other services, like VoIP, video, SMS and broadband.

The Telco Customer Experience

October 18, 2011

There has been some buzz on twitter about the telcos working on bettering the customer experience. Despite JD Powers awards, the average customer is not happy.

Those that are still on Telco 1.0 with POTS and DSL do not have a special relationship. And the fees are piling up.

Those with 3G or 4G wish they were actually getting high-speed broadband.

Those with VoIP - not quite Telco 2.0 - wish the quality was better.

Those customers with Hosted PBX - Telco 2.0 - wish the onboarding was better; the features easier to figure out; and that the quality was better.

The promise of Telco 2.0 and 3G/4G has largely been limited at the customer experience end.

It's Monday So Lots Happened

October 17, 2011

Polycom bought Vivu, a video collaboration company, to help Polycom push it's Presence gear. Video, video, video. Yet I never have video calls or video call requests. To me, I wish you would work on the phone part.

Will Paetec End up in the Wind

October 11, 2011

PAETEC has a bid on the table from Windstream for a stock swap. The board of PAETEC will vote on it at the end of October. Some shareholders are so not happy with the bid value that lawyers and analysts have been hired to evaluate the deal.

Meanwhile CNBC reports that Level3 will be putting in a competing bid for PAETEC despite the fact that L3 is currently in the process of acquiring Global Crossing.
