microsoft-logoIs there yet another economic crisis looming on the horizon? Perhaps, especially when we hear of Microsoft being tipped to shut down not one, but actually a couple of plants over in China – which would end up with 9,000 job cuts along the way. Ever since Microsoft picked up Nokia some time back, the software giant has taken steps to cut jobs all over the place. Not only that, it does look as though Microsoft might be doing the same thing yet again, except that this time around, it will involve a couple of manufacturing plants over in China. Do bear in mind that this round of layoffs reflect notifications made during the cycle of company-wide reductions of 18,000 employees in 2014, and the timing of actual departure was staggered due to local and legal requirements.

apple logoWe all know that Apple is one highly successful company, having had their fair share of hits in the past that saw a slew of devices grow from strength to strength. The fully touchscreen iPhone, when it was first released in 2007, certainly met with a whole lot of skepticism by the industry, but boy, how has it survived since then to become the juggernaut that it is today with the iPhone 6 being the latest model. Having said that, a latest report from market research firm Strategy Analytics claimed that the Apple iOS has picked up a record-high 88.7% global smartphone profit share in Q4, 2014, which is a whole lot more than the 70.5% figure they had in Q4 2013.

fcc-net-neutralityToday is a day of historic proportions, as a cote took place in Washington, D.C. saw the FCC go through a vote to reclassify broadband under Title II, which in turn, will provide the regulatory body the relevant degree of authority to impose rules over broadband providers. The new rules have been specially designed to ensure that the Internet will remain free of blocking, throttling and paid prioritization.

<--more-->In other words, the vote would work in favor of ensuring that the Internet remains free of paid prioritization as opposed to those with large checkbooks who demand better speed and traffic, and at the same time, remove barriers of use for consumers for legal purposes.

A wee bit of irony in all of this – at the turn of the decade, the FCC did make an attempt to pass rules in order to keep the Internet neutral. Verizon sued the FCC then, citing that they were unable to do this, and won. Since Verizon emerged as the victor, the FCC returned to the courts, and realized that if they were to reclassify broadband under Title II, they could then enforce net neutrality rules.

Hence, the FCC did just that, and reclassified broadband so that the organization will have a whole lot more control over broadband regulation compared to what it had on the 2010 rules. One would expect that this ruling will be challenged in court by Verizon as well as the rest, so do expect more courtroom action to happen in due time.
