What does it take to survive on an island in winter? For anyone who has actually tried such a hair-brained scheme, you know it’s all about the gear. The wind is ferocious at times off a frozen lake, there is no one around to help, and you never know how the weather will change.

It's Time for Comcast to Get Off the Wireless Fence

Comcast tried to give wireless a go several years ago. It failed. It pulled out of wireless, sold its spectrum and was done. Now, wireless has expanded and changed, and competitors like AT&T’s U-verse and DirecTV are using wireless to deliver television programming. I’ll bet Comcast now wishes it never sold off its wireless spectrum. So, what can we expect from the company going forward in the wireless space? If it jumps in again, will it be successful this time around?
Comcast recently acknowledged it was weighing its options in wireless.

Loyalty Failures

Software vendors and their business customers have tried many things to increase customer loyalty, but they have been disappointed more often than not. Rewards, delight, and daily deals were good ideas to help spur customer loyalty. Unfortunately, they weren’t enough to move the loyalty needle in today’s highly competitive markets.
Some businesses have rechristened their rewards programs as “loyalty” programs. Changing the name isn’t going to change the basic customer-facing process, though, and rewards programs often reward the wrong thing.

Apple reportedly set to reuse the Apple Watch design in next iteration

There’s nothing necessarily wrong with sticking with a tried and true design – just look at the HTC One series or the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S7 – but with more attractive circular Android Wear watches, the Gear S2, and so many other compelling options, refinement and improvement seems to be the name of the game when it comes to the smartwatch market. Not so for Apple though, at least if recent rumors are to be believed. Reportedly, the Apple Watch 2 will look the same on the outside with internal upgrades only.

And the Dish Ran Away With T-Mobile?

T-Mobile, which has tried unsuccessfully several times over the years to get acquired, is now in talks with Dish, according to press reports. The purchase price and possible cash-stock mix that could pay for the deal remain to be thrashed out. The two companies reportedly are planning a merger with Dish CEO Charlie Ergen to chair the new company and T-Mobile head John Legere (shown here) to be its CEO, but nothing has really been settled. The deal’s likely to go ahead, said Sam Rosen, a practice director at ABI Research.
