Nintendo Investors' Futile Hunt for Pokémon Go Profits


Nintendo investors who thought they would score big returns after this summer’s successful launch of Pokémon Go found that actual profits were more elusive than the colorful characters. Nintendo last week made it painfully clear that The Pokémon Co. and Niantic — the developer of the popular mobile app that takes players off the couch and into the real world — were far better positioned than it was to reap financial rewards.

Is T-Mobile Burning Too Hot?


T-Mobile US strikes again with its new Score offering. Score is like its Jump program for the company’s credit-challenged customers. I like all the activity going on at T-Mobile. It is alive once again. That’s the good part. However is it starting to burn too fast and too hot? Jump is T-Mobile’s version of similar plans offered by other carriers — like AT&T Mobility’s Next, Verizon Wireless’ Edge and Sprint’s One Up. There are so many new ideas in the marketplace today that I don’t expect any of them to have a long shelf life.
