Deals are born and die every month in this industry, and today Sprint and T-Mobile take a hit while Samsung and Google expand.
T-Mobile is having the hardest of times as it tries to be acquires. Reports from the Wall Street Journal claim Sprint is no longer trying to acquire the #4 US carrier, for convincing regulators to bless the deal would prove to be too complicated.
Other reports claim French company Iliad is planning to offer $15 billion, which Deutsche Telekom deemed to low of a price. Will this deal now seem much more enticing?
Opinion: T-Mobile is doing much better as their Uncarrier campaign continues to unfold. Would it make sense to even sell the carrier at this point?
I couldn’t have been happier to see an email notification a bit earlier today. It was Samsung letting us know the Samsung Unpacked 2014 Chapter 2 event was to take place come September 3rd! To make matters even more exciting, we have events across the globe. Press can attend events in Berlin, Beijing or New York.
We don’t need to be guessing what this announcement is all about, either. Samsung is throwing us a hint by telling us to “Note the date” and showing us Note-centric graphics in the invitation. Be sure we will be seeing the Galaxy Note 4 soon, guys!
Opinion: The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is looking to be a good next-generation contender. Will it have what it takes to win the battle over your credit card, though?
Is the internet really global? It may be, in many ways, but it definitely needs some work. This is why Google has updated Gmail with a very neat feature. Starting today, you can send and receive emails with addresses that include non-latin and accented characters. This would include asian characters and words like José.
Google wants to take this further and truly rid the internet of borders. Calendar will support these characters very soon, and they plan to bring the ability to create Gmail accounts using these “foreign” characters, as well.
Opinion: As a spanish speaker, I can certainly feel the pain of having to deal with these incompatibilities. It’s good to see Google working towards a more global reach.
