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.

Snap Seizes the Moment


Snap Inc. last week filed for a $3 billion initial public offering. The company’s private market valuation is $17.8 billion, but investors reportedly have valued it at between $20 billion and $25 billion. “Twenty-five billion dollars is just nuts, but that’s the market we’re in,” remarked Rob Enderle, principal analyst at the Enderle Group. “This could provide an opportunity for the big gambler investors, but better to watch for the high and then short the stock,” he suggested, because Snap’s prospectus “suggests profit will never arrive.”
