FCC Head Champions FM Radio for Smartphones


Ajit Pai, the new chairman of the FCC, last week issued a call for activation of the FM chips in smartphones. The vast majority of smartphones sold in the U.S. have FM chips, but they’re activated in only about 44 percent of the top brands, Pai told attendees at the North American Broadcasters Association symposium on the future of radio and audio. Although that’s nearly twice the 25 percent figure of two years ago, it’s not good enough, Pai suggested, noting that 80 percent of smartphones sold in Mexico have their FM chips activated.

Verizon Cuts Better Deal for Breach-Battered Yahoo


Verizon and Yahoo on Tuesday announced new terms for the acquisition deal they inked last summer. Verizon will pay $350 million less than the original contract price, which places the new value of the deal at $4.48 billion. Yahoo will be responsible for 50 percent of any breach-related cash liabilities incurred as a result of non-SEC government investigations and third-party litigation, under the new agreement. Yahoo will be fully responsible for any liabilities resulting from shareholder lawsuits and SEC investigations. The acquisition still “makes strategic sense,” said Verizon EVP Marni Waldon.
