EIC podcast: Dell's music plans; Microsoft's Mojave; Broadband wars
On this week's EIC squared podcast Dan and I assess Dell's MP3 player trial balloon, Vista's Mojave experiment and the broadband wars and whether any of the big players can actually win.First up, Dell floated a trial balloon in the Wall Street Journal today and the general idea is this: Dell is going to try and launch a music player again--this time with software as its big selling point.
And finally, I mull over the broadband wars as Verizon, AT&T and Comcast have all reported earnings. The upshot: No one is exactly winning. In fact, they are all likely to see margins fall as they strive to hold customers and out market rivals. In the end, that state of affairs is promising for consumers.
