Apple iTV Rumors Swirl Around Siri Integration

Summary
The Apple iTV rumors are heating up, and it's likely they will swirl until Apple formally confirms or denies the talk of getting into the traditional television business. But analysts remain skeptical that Apple can compete against the likes of Samsung, Sony and Panasonic. New York Times' blogger Nick Bilton added fuel to the Apple television fire that Steve Jobs' biographer Walter Isaacson started this week with a post that explores "what's really next for Apple in television." Bilton contends that although Jobs was referring to Apple's plans to build a full-fledged television when he said, "I've finally cracked it," he was not referring to a TV set. Rather, Bilton contends, he was talking about Siri, the voice commanded virtual assistant that comes pre-installed on the iPhone 4S. The iPad Argument Still, Bilton goes on to predict that Apple will produce a television. He also points to a Barclays report that predicts Apple could generate $19 billion in revenue in a single year if it developed a television set -- and that's without content deals in place. But Colin Dixon, a senior IPTV analyst at The Diffusion Group, remains the skeptic. "The renewal cycle for TVs is vastly different to hand-held electronics," Dixon said. "I replace my cellphone every year or two. I don't replace my TV for eight years. TVs are typically quite large, have pride of place in the living room, and sometimes are quite logistically difficult to replace and dispose of." Dixon also believes Apple could make great strides on the TV front without actually manufacturing one of its own. For example, he explained, Apple could use its Siri technology to allow consumers to search television shows just as easily through an iPad. In fact, he said, it would probably be easier to integrate Siri that way because the microphone would be...

FCC's new USF Connect America fund draws different reactions

Summary
The FCC finally voted to update the Universal Service Fund and intercarrier compensation systems (ICS) this week, but some service providers think more needs to be done to drive more broadband deployments in rural areas.Under the provisions of the new Connect America Fund, the FCC has allocated $4.5 billion budget that it says is inteneded to help extend broadband infrastructure to underserved or unserved areas of the U.S. Over the next six years, the FCC forecasts the new initiative to build out broadband to rural areas will create 500,000 new jobs over the next years.  As previously announced before, the FCC will also allocate funds to drive mobile broadband via its new Mobility fund. Not surprisingly, the new initiative, which only took a portion of the group of wireline telcos' previously proposed ABC (America's Broadband Connectivity) plan, drew different responses from Tier 1 and 2 ILECs.CenturyLink (NYSE: CTL), a Tier 1 ILEC that was part of the ILEC group that proposed their own USF reform measure, was largely supportive of the new reforms. "While we await the details of the order, we believe the FCC's order will foster the deployment of broadband services to unserved and underserved markets in mostly rural areas," Steve Davis, senior vice president of CenturyLink Public Policy and Government Relations, said, "We are encouraged that this order allocates support for the deployment of broadband services in 2012 and possibly 2013, as the permanent cost model analysis proceeds. These funds will assure that broadband deployment in high cost areas continues while the FCC completes its work."However, TDS Telecom (NYSE: TDS), a telco that serves a diversity of smaller and rural markets believes the FCC's reforms don't go far enough. "TDS applauds the FCC's initial efforts to modernize and evolve the federal universal service fund (USF) and inter-carrier compensation (ICC) regimes of this country," said Drew Petersen, vice president of external affairs and communications for TDS in a statement. "These efforts are focused on removing waste, network duplication, and abuses in the current system. However, much more is required to incentivize rural carriers, like TDS, to continue expanding and maintaining the high-cost Internet networks necessary to connect rural America."

HP Staying in the PC Business After All

Summary
Hewlett-Packard is staying in the PC business. That's the decision from new CEO Meg Whitman, who says she is keeping that division as part of the company. In August, the previous CEO, Leo Apotheker, had announced H-P was evaluating possibly selling or spinning off its PC division. The HP Personal Systems Group generated almost a third of the company's $126 billion in revenue last fiscal year. Whitman told The New York Times: "First and foremost, HP is a hardware company. We want to build out our software, but I don't think we are done yet on hardware." $40.7 Billion in 2010 In a statement, the company said it had "completed its evaluation of strategic alternatives to its Personal Systems Group" and had decided to keep it. H-P said its evaluation had involved subject-matter experts across the company's businesses and functions, which had revealed "the depth of the integration" of PSG in the supply chain, IT, and procurement, as well as the "significant extent" to which the unit contributes to HP's solutions portfolio and overall brand. The evaluation also showed that the cost to spin it off outweighed the benefits. Some of those assessed benefits, according to news reports, include maintaining a diverse line of products, getting better deals on components and remaining a major hardware company. Whitman has also said that spinning off the PC unit would have meant a charge of $1.5 billion in one-time expenses and $1 billion annually in ongoing costs for maintaining similar functions, not to mention that the spun-off or sold company could have become a competitor for H-P's remaining products. The announcement by Apotheker had taken the computer industry by surprise, particularly because H-P is the top manufacturer of personal computers in the world, with revenue of $40.7 billion in 2010. Apotheker was ousted as CEO in September, and...
