  • Apple: Winning The Profit Battle, Losing The Smartphone War [View article]
    I couldn't even finish reading this garbage. Santos is a bitter individual who constantly reminds me of a person who missed the boat and complains that it will sink anyway. Sore loser!!! The notion that Samsung is winning the smartphone war is as silly as saying that RC cola is beating Coke in the cola wars because it's cheaper......why does Alpha pay this disillusioned fool anyway?

  • Drug retailers cut out Apple Pay [View news story]
    I use Visa, MasterCard, Amex for all my purchases. I refuse to use a debit card period. I don't see any advantage to using a debit card but I do see many liabilities to using one. Namely no buyer protection and if I go over my checking account Balence I have to pay an overdraft fee, then there's hacking of course. My credit cards all give my 24 days interest free to pay the bill and 1-2% back in rebates. Apple pay is a safe and convientent way to use my CCs and have much more security from hackers or loss or theft. CurrentC is for people who can't get credit.

  • Big Problems Within Procter & Gamble's Long-Term Future [View article]
    Procter & Gamble Bans Staff From Using Netflix And Pandora


    APR. 3, 2012, 1:45 PM 3,533 7

    Procter & Gamble experienced a "digital emergency" over its employees' timewasting use of Netflix, Pandora, YouTube and Facebook at work, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
    The company was moving more of its management systems online, but found something holding up the digitization process: the computers were going really, really slowly.

    The Enquirer got a hold of an internal memo about the problem, "requiring immediate intervention," and:

    When P&G’s IT sleuths investigated ... they found something surprising:

    More than 50,000 YouTube videos were being downloaded from company computers every day. Along with watching videos, P&Gers were listening to 4,000 hours of music a day on Pandora, the personal playlist Web site.
    It's not "surprising" that people are watching cat videos at work. But it's enough of a problem that the memo also estimated it would cost $15 million a year to increase the bandwidth to accommodate the "not business critical" internet consumption.

    P&G decided YouTube and Facebook were necessary for business, but Netflix and Pandora are now banned at the company. P&G is in the middle of an efficiency drive that has already cost 5,700 jobs after deciding it could cut marketing costs by utilizing digital media.

    Some of the Inquirer's commenters were dismayed that the Pandora users were "lumped in with the YouTube users as slackers," because it is possible to listen to music while working.

    Ad Age reported that Pandora and Netflix competitors including Hulu, Spotify, Amazon, and Vudu are safe for now, as are other bandwidth guzzlers:

    Some of P&G's biggest bandwidth spikes have come during sporting events such as the World Cup. But as the company is a major global sponsor of the Summer Olympics, don't expect P&G to pull the plug on the upcoming London games.

    If anyone has a copy of the memo, forward it along to Lstampler@businessinsi... Tips are always appreciated!

  • Wal-Mart: The Time To Buy Is When No One Likes A Quality Dividend Company [View article]
    Walmart has continued to under appreciate the power of the Internet. They should build a web presence that utilizes this game changer. I realize they think their strength lies in bringing people into their airport hangar style stores. But that was the cutting edge in retail in the 80's. They could do both for a decade or two. But the future of most retail is a website and a warehouse.
