Encourage Wired Internet Data Consumption

Every month, my friend’s 22-year-old son pays about $100 in mobile data overage fees. He can get a wired connection at his home, but he doesn’t.

He loves the convenience of his mobile phone and there’s no replacement for it. Sure, getting a wired Wi-Fi network at his home would save him money, but at this stage in his life mobility and simplicity are more important.

For the 4th straight quarter in a row, wired Internet connections are down across the US. So what’s going on? Just a glitch? Maybe. Maybe not.

Charter Communications’ recently had a profitable quarter, and growth in TV subscribers, despite heavy network investments. They are a buy or hold for many analysts today.

Culture Branding – Where’s the Fluff?

HR and Marketing functions aren’t normally integrated. And both functions can feel like ‘fluff’ to technical people, however, it’s not just fluff – it’s culture and it about branding. This presentation seeks to prove that what’s good for HR is good for Marketing, and vice versa.

Culture and Employee or Employment Branding is becoming increasingly popular considerations as labor markets tighten, and consumers seek companies who are both good corporate citizens, and gravitate to companies who’s culture aligns with their own.
