June 2018 - Will LEO Kickstart the Asian Broadband Market? | Via Satellite Jun 2018
"In terms of demand, Asia leads the way in satellite broadband. It's purely a numbers game and Asia certainly has the numbers — as long as they refer to population and households, that is. If referring to U.S. dollar figures, then it's a different story, one that has the United States as the protagonist. According to a Northern Sky Research (NSR) market forecast, North America is driving revenues in terms of subscribers. Despite Asia having a much larger population, it really boils down to economics and, comparatively, disposable income levels in Asia are not as high as that of the United States. "

"When considering the price point, the magic number that unlocks the barrier holding back satellite changes country to country. Satellite needs to match fiber, and both need to be at a much lower price.

"In the United States, it's $60, which is still high, however, people are willing to pay that premium. Comparatively, in the Philippines, for example, a fiber connection costs around $50 a month. But looking at the mass markets, the price will have to go down to around $10 to $15 – and this will still be challenging," says Del Rosario. "

“If these [LEO] constellations are manufactured efficiently and launched on time, if the ground terminals are priced at $150-300 per unit, if they get market access to the countries they’re targeting, and if they drastically reduce the price to the consumer, say to $10-15, then the impact will be huge. But there are a lot of ‘ifs’ riding on this. Getting all this right, then yes, they will hit Asia’s mainstream market, and that is huge,” explains Del Rosario.

Roche pays $2.4 billion for rest of cancer expert Foundation Medicine
FMI develops tests to help doctors understand the genetic profile of patients’ tumors and guide them to effective therapies (targeted therapies, immunotherapies and clinical trials). The deal fitted very well with Roche’s position as an early leader in matching treatment to genetic profiles (of patients).

Roche pharmaceuticals head Daniel O’Day said such technology was “important to our personalized healthcare strategy as we believe molecular insights and the broad availability of high quality comprehensive genomic profiling are key enablers for the development of, and access to, new cancer treatments”.

Telecommunications, Global Competitiveness, and National Security — May 16, 2018 Statement Before the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Communications and Technology
Not too long, and really good overview of current issues in Chinese technology regulation in 2018. “My testimony today reflects my experience as an analyst of Chinese technology policy for more than a decade. I have not only worked with the U.S. government, but also in the commercial sector with leading multinational companies in China. The complex structural challenges posed by China’s approach to technology and industrial policy require a deep understanding of both the commercial and strategic security dimensions of our trade and investment relationship.”

Dear Publishers, if you want my subscription dollars (or euros), here is what I expect…
A growing number of publications are switching to the subscription model. But most of them are lagging behind, with a poor user experience. Lousy execution will eventually translate into casualties.
