  • Intel turns to TVs with set-top box launch this year
    Intel this year will launch an online television service with its own proprietary set-top box, posing competition for Boxee, Roku and possibly Apple. The Internet-based TV service will extend to mobile devices, according to Intel's Erik Huggers. The move comes while the PC market, the chipmaker's longtime bread and butter, continues to decline as mobile electronics gain in popularity.

  • Automakers: FCC's Wi-Fi push will cause accidents, cost lives
    Federal regulators' plan to encourage wireless communications among cars -- a possible lead-up to self-driving vehicles -- will jam the airwaves along with new accident-prevention technology that could save thousands of lives each year, say automakers and their vendors. The Federal Communications Commission might introduce rules next week that would expand car-to-car communications, but carmakers argue that the frequencies will interfere with spectrum for so-called "talking car" technology.

  • Music veteran Iovine will curate Beats subscription service
    Beats CEO Jimmy Iovine, who has engineered and produced many hit records, says his company will offer a music subscription service this year that he will personally curate, likely priced at $10 a month. "There is a sea of music, an ocean of music and absolutely no curation for it. Your friends can't curate for you. No one knows what song comes next," he said. "Apple knows a lot about your music taste. Google knows a lot, and Facebook. But no one is using it to curate."

  • Act now: Keep the Internet free and open
    The Internet is the lifeblood of the digital economy, creating jobs, spurring innovation and connecting individuals around the world. This success comes mainly because the Internet has been largely free from overbearing government control. However, as we saw in the case of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA), the Internet's prosperity is easily threatened. Right now, there is a global movement to bring the Internet under international control. It's time to stand up and make sure your voice is heard on this issue. Act now and tell your lawmaker to support efforts that would make it the official policy of the United States to promote a global Internet free from government control.
