While under oath, AT&T's CEO reveals $15/month TV streaming service for mobile devices

Plenty of strange things have been revealed by people testifying under oath. But what came out of Randall Stephenson’s testimony yesterday might have been a first. The CEO of AT&T, while on the witness stand and under oath in a courtroom, revealed a new AT&T streaming service called AT&T Watch. Designed for those who like to watch streaming television on their mobile devices, this will be a low-cost service priced at $15/month. Unlike the carrier’s DirecTV Now streaming app, which is priced at $35/month, AT&T Watch will not carry any sporting events in order to keep the price down.

Apple CEO Tim Cook is creeped out by ads that follow him around the internet

Late last month, Apple CEO Tim Cook commented on the Facebook-Cambridge Analytica scandal. When asked what he would do if he were Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Cook replied, “I wouldn’t be in this situation.” He later stated, “We could make a ton of money if our customer was our product. We’ve elected not to do that.” Zuckerberg hit back calling the Apple executive’s comments “extremely glib.”

On Friday, Cook was interviewed on MSNBC and said that online ads that follow users around the internet are creepy. He said, “To me it’s creepy when I look at something and all of a …

Verizon CEO: 5G phones and devices to have monster battery life

Imagine a future where your phone will have to be charged just once a month. Crazy? Verizon’s CEO begs to differ. While taking part in a panel discussion during a tech conference, he clarified that what 5G networks will bring in terms of added value aren’t crazy high download speeds, as 4G LTE can be fast enough at the moment, too, rivaling home broadband, but low latency, and the ability to handle much more crowded tower connections.

Lowell McAdam pegged that same “drastically lower latency” as the culprit for the leap in battery life, leading to Internet-of-things …

BlackBerry CEO John Chen receives a contract extension to 2023

Has 1,592 days really gone by since John Chen took over as CEO of BlackBerry from Thorsten Heins? Chen, as he promised, continued to push out new handsets until it was obvious that this was not a financially viable survival plan. So the executive made a brilliant move and licensed the BlackBerry name and its version of Android to other companies including TCL. This allowed the company to eliminate its hardware manufacturing business in order to focus on “cybersecurity and embedded software.”

To reward Chen’s turnaround of the company, BlackBerry today extended Chen’s contract by another …

Uber CEO slams MIT after study on ride-hailing minimum wages

TwitterFacebook

$3.37. 

That’s the meager median wage Uber and Lyft drivers make per hour, according to a paper published by MIT’s Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research that surveyed over 1,000 drivers in the United States. 

The study made headlines this week, revealing that the cost of insurance, fuel, and car maintenance all played a major impact on why those who drive for ride-share companies do not meet minimum wage. 

Despite the compelling findings, Uber’s CEO Dara Khosrowshahi is refuting the study’s results himself, on Twitter of all places.

Motorola RAZR coming back hints Lenovo CEO

One of the most popular handsets in the history of the cellphone, Motorola sold 50 million RAZR flip phones between 2004 and 2006. Anyone who was anyone had to have the device. While there were smartphones around, it wasn’t until the next year, when Apple CEO Steve Jobs introduced something called the Apple iPhone (you might have heard of it) that the smartphone revolution began in earnest. Intelligent handsets soared in popularity, marking the end of the RAZR.

With the return of the Nokia 8110 at MWC bringing a nostalgic feeling to many, Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing talked today with …
