Energy firms overcharging customers, says Ofgem - BBC News
Energy companies are "overcharging in many cases" with prices failing to fall in line with dropping wholesale costs, the industry's regulator has said. [...] Dermot Nolan, chief executive of Ofgem, told the BBC that domestic gas and electricity prices should be cheaper "for the vast majority of people". Wholesale energy costs make up nearly half of a domestic bill, and have fallen by about a third in the last 12 to 18 months, he said. Yet, prices had not fallen, he added.

Ofcom to BT: Status quo is not an option - BBC News
Far more serious for our broadband future is Ofcom's decision on whether BT's Openreach division should be split off from the rest of the company. Rival suppliers and some consumer groups argue that is the only way of getting the UK's broadband strategy back on track, while BT insists it would harm, not help, its investment programme. [...] She promises that Ofcom will press BT and its rivals on behalf of consumers on issues such as broadband advertising and the ability to switch providers. [...] The most startling figure in its Connected Nations report is that half of all small firms in areas like business parks cannot even get speeds of 10Mbps, the bare minimum recently promised to everyone by the government by 2020.

Deutsche Telekom darf das Internet schneller machen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Es gibt in der Frage auch starken politischen Druck: Die Bundesregierung will den Breitbandausbau bis 2018 durchbekommen, dann soll es überall im Land Zugänge mit 50 Megabit pro Sekunde geben - es ist ein Prestigeprojekt des Ministers Alexander Dobrindt (Verkehr und digitale Infrastruktur). Und ohne die Vectoring-Pläne der Telekom wäre das sehr viel schwerer zu erreichen. Zur Entscheidung der Netzagentur können die Marktteilnehmer noch einmal formell Stellung nehmen, auch in einer öffentlichen Verhandlung. Auch das Kartellamt und die europäische Regulierungsbehörde, die Vectoring kritisch sieht, werden gehört. Erst dann fällt im Frühjahr 2016 die endgültige Entscheidung.

Pando: It’s Jack Dorsey’s ego, not Moments, that will sink or save Twitter
And Tuesday’s launch of Moments also gave us a hint at how the story is going to develop next. The launch was timed to make Dorsey appear the fast moving architect of a product that had actually been in development for nearly a year. Dorsey was to get the credit for Moments, for good or ill. And it worked. Publication after publication hailed Dorsey as fast moving, and positioned Moments as “his” bet on transforming the company. As if we’re all to believe the entire thing was imagined and coded within 24 hours of Dorsey arriving at his new desk. All of the above can be summed up in one word: Ego...

Twitter works just fine – but for investors, anything except total market domination is a disaster | Comment is free | The Guardian
Nothing better illustrates capitalism’s addiction to illogic than the mismatch between Twitter’s workability and its unpopularity with Wall Street [...] Any company that cannot demonstrate a clear route to monopolising its space, monetising its users’ data on a vast scale, is to be discarded, targeted for acquisition, consigned to perpetual dowdiness. [...] When I’ve pointed to Wikipedia, Apache or Linux as harbingers of a new, non-market, open source economics, one of the stock responses is: “now show us something more spectacular.” The problem is, these modest, functional and free products are already in their own way spectacular. Wikipedia is the biggest information product in the world; Apache runs half the world’s web servers; and Linux is the system of choice for at least a third of all servers (the computers that run businesses) and 97% of the world’s supercomputers.

People are underestimating Snapchat just like they underestimated Facebook - Vox
In fact, almost every one of today's big internet companies — Yahoo, Google, Facebook, and Twitter — faced similar skepticism in their early years. Back in 2007, Kara Swisher (who now runs Re/code which, like Vox.com, is part of Vox Media) expressed astonishment that Facebook could be worth $15 billion. A year before that, a Slate headline read "$1 Billion for Facebook? LOL!" (Facebook is now worth $260 billion.) [....] A company's early ad revenue just doesn't tell us anything interesting about its long-term earnings potential. It takes a while for a company to hire a sales team, settle on an effective advertising format, and build awareness among potential customers. [...] But while it might take time for Snapchat to build a successful advertising program, there's little doubt that it will be able to. Every day, 100 million people open up the Snapchat app. As long as that's true, advertisers are going to be willing to pay top dollar to reach them.

Uber’s drivers are employees, not “contractors”: California labor commission ruling | PandoDaily
[ Uber is not a stakeholder in the local economy and does not share economic interest of the population at large. Uber = privatization of public/private transportation. an option for convenience. trading money for time and convenience ] Uber’s business model—skim profits off drivers, while avoiding the expenses that come with hiring drivers as employees—just suffered a major blow: the California labor commission has just ruled that Uber’s drivers are, in fact, employees, not contractors. Uber, which has seen its valuation soar to over $50 billion, can no longer claim that it is just a nifty little app that happens to pair up micro-entrepreneurial drivers and consumers, thereby avoiding the expenses and laws that other transportation and logistics companies have to bear. The ruling will significantly impact Uber’s valuation, now that they’ll have to pay and treat their drivers like employees.

So Far Net Neutrality Hasn’t Broken The Internet | TechCrunch
Shares of Verizon — the future home of this publication — a company viscerally opposed to net neutrality, are down a fraction in a down market. Investors, it seems, aren’t pricing much downside into net neutrality in the immediate aftermath of its enaction. There is a certain irony to the Verizon point. Verizon brought the last suit against net neutrality that led to the new rules. Title II is in no small way due to the actions of that ISP. [...] Following the FCC’s victory to put down a stay of its rules, Wheeler said that the decision “give[s] broadband providers the certainty and economic incentive to build fast and competitive broadband networks.” ISPs would rather have it another way. [ Profit maximization by historically lobbying washington for subsidies to build out infrastructure, without any oversight/accountability, ISP's have yet to invest in real-terms what they have received in government subsidies.

With its own Tweet gaffe, Twitter spectacularly demonstrates its own intrinsic Catch-22 | PandoDaily
[ specific use case, growth will be too slow, too anemic, for Wall Streets taste. Twitter is a utility, but not such a big one like FB. Oversold potential. But that is Catch-22 you have to sell hard and project. You basically work for Wall Street cottage industry to meet their estimates/forecasts. ] CEO Dick Costolo has tried a lot of new tricks to change that, catering more to logged-out users on Twitter’s home page, providing new users a readymade list of followers, partnering with Google to include tweets in search results. But today, Costolo said Twitter still needs to help users answer two questions, “Why should I use Twitter?” and “How do I use Twitter?” Incredibly, these questions plague Twitter nine years after the first tweet was ever sent, 17 months after Twitter’s IPO and nearly six months after the analyst day when Costolo pledged to turn things around. As a result, user growth remains disappointing. And now, it seems, so does revenue growth.

Forget Netflix’s stock volatility, the real news is its long-term plan is taking shape | PandoDaily
In other words, now that Netflix is in a third of US homes, it’s already showing signs of market saturation blunting its potential for future growth. There are two reasons why investors would shrug off this bad news: because they’re too busy covering short positions, or because they are actually beginning to buy into the long-term case for Netflix that Hastings has been making for years. As if telling a child for the hundredth time that vegetables are good for him, Hastings spelled out, sometimes in bold text, the Netflix game plan: “It is increasingly clear that virtually all entertainment video will be Internet video in the future. We’ll continue to improve our content, our marketing and our service, to eventually achieve ‘must have’ status in most households.”

Verhandlungsposition zur Netzneutralität: Kompromisse sehen anders aus › Digitale Gesellschaft
Mit dem nun vorgestellten Entwurf kommt die Bundesregierung den Wünschen der Providerlobby weitestgehend entgegen. Er ist so abgefasst, dass nicht nur – wie immer wieder propagiert – Anwendungen wie Telemedizin und selbstfahrende Autos als Spezialdienste ermöglicht werden, sondern vielmehr beliebte Dienste des offenen Internets künftig auf Spezialdienste ausgelagert und kostenfplichtig angeboten werden können. Verlangsamungen und Blockierung von Internetzugängen werden durch den Entwurf ebenso legalisiert wie verbraucher- und wettbewerbsunfreundliche Praktiken wie das Zero-Rating einzelner Dienste. Rein protokollbasierte Dienste finden überhaupt keine Berücksichtigung. Alles in allem ist der Entwurf eine Blaupause für die Gewinnmaximierung der Telekommunikationsprovider. &! http://www.reddit.com/r/worldnews/comments/2o9jy1/angela_merkel_speaks_against_net_neutrality/

Careful what you wish against: Silicon Valley just rolled out a red carpet to government regulation | PandoDaily
I never thought I’d write these words: Sometimes the public markets is the best thing that can happen to a hot company. [...] Today, Uber running a different playbook than even Facebook. First, it has controlled access to liquidity much more than Facebook ever did. But, by contrast, the company’s access to capital has been an exaggeration of Facebook’s already prodigious fundraising path. Uber has wholly embraced the notion of raising gargantuan amounts of money at jaw-dropping late stage valuations as an avenue to put off an IPO, seemingly indefinitely if it wants. That should suit a CEO like Uber’s Travis Kalanick who bristles at anyone telling him how to do his job and hates government regulation. Importantly, Uber is the first unicorn of the mobile-first era. [...] Uber’s investors have exerted no pressure on the Valley darling. [...] Reckless disregard for customers.

UN officials 'shocked' by Detroit’s mass water shutoffs | Al Jazeera America
"“Disconnection of water services because of failure to pay due to lack of means constitutes a violation of the human right to water and other international human rights,” U.N. officials de Albuquerque and Farha wrote in advance of their arrival." [...] for example, the agency spent $537 million that had been earmarked for repairs paying off interest-rate swaps to major banks." --- A United Nations special rapporteur on the human right to safe drinking water and sanitation visited Detroit over the weekend, where thousands of city residents have been left without water because they can't afford to pay water bills (prices have skyrocketed to twice the national average). She was "shocked" by the way the shut off is "affecting the weakest, the poorest and the most vulnerable.” - via https://www.facebook.com/moyersandcompany/posts/888065581211454 & http://america.aljazeera.com/opinions/2014/6/detroit-public-watershutoffsunitednationsprivatization.html

Sascha Lobo über die Macht der Mädchen im Internet - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Aber tatsächlich hat das Verhalten insbesondere amerikanischer, weiblicher Teenager großen Einfluss auf Netz- und Medienkonzerne. Denn das Herz der Technologiewelt schlägt inzwischen "social", und junge Mädchen benutzen soziale Medien deutlich intensiver als alle anderen Gruppen. [...] Jüngstes Beispiel ist die Einführung von Stickern auf Facebook, also kleinen, meist niedlich gemeinten Bildchen, mit denen man Beiträge kommentieren kann. Das koreanisch-japanische Netzwerk Line, eine Mischung aus Twitter und WhatsApp mit Facebook-Elementen, hat eine junge, eher weibliche Nutzerschaft; dort ist dieses sehr visuelle Kommunikationsprinzip Sticker groß geworden: Emoticons auf Speed. Nebenbei gibt es interessante Theorien dazu, dass die verwandten Emojis die erste echte, weltweit funktionierende Sprache seien. & http://pando.com/2014/10/08/quartz-coins-the-venmo-line-reminding-us-that-the-under-30-crowd-lives-in-a-totally-different-digital-world/

Desertec: Wüstenstrom-Projekt DII für Erneuerbare Energie vor dem Aus - SPIEGEL ONLINE
.... Europe has to step in. Capitalism sees no need to put that money now in long-term when profit margin sinks over the long-term as energy prices may sink over the long-term because energy (renewable energy) becomes commodity ... cheaper. with marginal revenue/profit. thus making it impossible to turn 15-20% ROI over the long-term.

Twitter Pollutes The Timeline | TechCrunch
The specific change in how your Twitter timeline operates allows for the company to inject additional content into your feed from other users you don’t follow. This is in addition to promoted tweet advertising content — you still get that thrust into your feed too. Yesterday the company added the following paragraph to a Help Center page which details exactly how far it’s moving the goal posts here: Additionally, when we identify a Tweet, an account to follow, or other content that’s popular or relevant, we may add it to your timeline. This means you will sometimes see Tweets from accounts you don’t follow. We select each Tweet using a variety of signals, including how popular it is and how people in your network are interacting with it. Our goal is to make your home timeline even more relevant and interesting. +++ http://recode.net/2014/08/22/how-twitter-decides-what-to-place-in-your-stream/

3 Myths Comcast Is Telling The FCC About TWC Merger – Consumerist
In addition to the wide swaths of rural land with few broadband options (again, this uses the outdated definition of 3Mbps or better), many of the most densely populated metro areas in the country — Los Angeles, Atlanta, Miami, Chicago, St. Louis, Seattle, New Orleans, and basically the entire D.C.-Philly-NYC-Boston corridor — have few options for even barely acceptable Internet service. Approving the Comcast/TWC merger will do nothing to change this map. It will only change the name of the company that screws up the billing for the customers in these areas.

Path’s kiss of death compliment: “It’s hugely popular in Indonesia!” | PandoDaily
[+ Raising Too Much Money for a too small product and market!?] It may be the beginning of the end for a company that was once offered $125 million to sell to Google – in a high priced acquihire – less that six months into its existence and before the company even launched. [...] So, what went so wrong? The answer seems to be a combination of poor execution, an excessive focus on design over utility (not to mention differentiation), and a keeping up with the Joneses desire to spend lavishly. [...] The company has always been a reflection of Morin, including his obsessiveness over design and his proclivity for spending. For example, Path reportedly built its team with a designer to developer ratio of 1-to-2, as compared to an industry average that is likely closer to 1-to-20 (or even lower, although precise figures are hard to come by).

Net Neutrality and the Idea of America : The New Yorker
In “The Frontier in American History,” the historian Frederick Jackson Turner argued that it was frontiers that created the essential aspects of American democracy. Life on the frontier, he wrote, was what developed “the courageous determination to break new paths” and “indifference to the dogma that because an institution or a condition exists, it must remain.” The debate over net neutrality, by this reckoning, is a classic debate over the closing of a frontier. The fear is that industrial consolidation, as it has before, will diminish opportunities for the new, idealistic, and optimistic, leaving behind the established, tested, and cynical. It would be the lapse into plutocracy that Turner and others feared.

FCC approves plan to consider paid priority on Internet
The proposal is not a final rule, but the vote on Thursday is a significant step forward on a controversial idea that has invited fierce opposition from consumer advocates, Silicon Valley heavyweights, and Democratic lawmakers.

You can read Josh’s review of how Cover works here. Cover is being somewhat cryptic in discussing what it will be working on at Twitter. “Twitter, like Cover, believes in the incredible potential of Android,” they write. “They share our vision that smartphones can be a lot smarter — more useful and more contextual — and together we’re going to make that happen. We’ll be building upon a lot of what makes Cover great, and we’re thrilled to create something even better at Twitter.”

Dear Mark Zuckerberg | Dalton Caldwell
I have come to the conclusion that I took this foolhardy risk because the Twitter “platform” was even more of a joke than the Facebook “platform”. As someone that wants to build quality social software, software that doesn’t force users to re-create their friends list, or not use oAuth, etc., I have to endure huge platform risk. Personally speaking, I am resolved to never write another line of code for rotten-to-the-core “platforms” like Facebook or Twitter. Lesson learned.

[...]

I believe that future social platforms will behave more like infrastructure, and less like media companies. I believe that a number of smaller, interoperable social platforms with a clear, sustainable business models will usurp you. These future companies will be valued at a small fraction of what Facebook and Twitter currently are. I think that is OK. Platforms are judged by the value generated by their ecosystem, not by the value the platforms directly capture.
