However, the current coolers on the market are something of a bummer since they tend to be both heavy and unwieldy. Denver-based engineer Scotty Allen is trying to change all that, however, with a brilliant new cooler design that will make bringing beer along with you to picnics and hikes easier than ever before.

Comcast and TWC lit $32 million on fire lobbying the government to pass their merger

This will be heartbreaking for many of you to hear, but it seems that Comcast and Time Warner Cable spent a total of $32 million lobbying the government to sign off on their merger and they still didn’t get what they wanted. In a big Politico report called “Collapse of Comcast-Time Warner Cable merger shows limits of lobbying,” we learn that Comcast and TWC pulled out all the stops to get their merger approved but that it still wasn’t enough.

Google Project Fi Subscriber Numbers

The real way to tell whether Google’s wireless service is a success

By on April 23, 2015 at 6:45 PM.

The real way to tell whether Google’s wireless service is a success

There is no way that Google’s Project Fi wireless service is going to get tens of millions of subscribers and rival mega-carriers like AT&T and Verizon. But that’s not a big deal because Google didn’t launch Project Fi to make money directly from monthly subscription fees anyway. The real reason Google launched Project Fi was to change the wireless industry’s behavior in ways that benefit Google and, if we’re lucky, wireless consumers as well.

Apple Beats Music Vs. Tidal

How Apple and Beats Music could succeed where Tidal has so far failed

How Apple and Beats Music could succeed where Tidal has so far failed

OK, so I have a confession: I really like the idea behind Tidal. I think many artists are being perfectly reasonable when they say that streaming services such as Spotify are giving them a raw deal and that they would love to have a streaming service that pays them more for their work.

Comcast Hulu Vs. Netflix Apple TV

Why has Hulu posed little threat to Netflix? New report blames a predictable culprit

Why has Hulu posed little threat to Netflix? New report blames a predictable culprit

There’s a lot to like about Hulu but it’s never posed any kind of threat to Netflix, despite its clear ambitions for doing so. If you want some perspective, consider that the last time Hulu announced its subscriber numbers, it had 6 million in total. Netflix, meanwhile, added a stunning 4.9 million subscribers over the last quarter alone and now boasts a subscriber base of more than 62 million worldwide.

Apple can’t be this desperate to fix iOS Maps… can it?

It’s been two-and-a-half years since the launch of Apple’s own iOS Maps app and Apple is still regularly acquiring new companies and asking for others to pitch in to help fix its assorted problems. Nonetheless, we can’t imagine Apple would be desperate enough to fix iOS Maps that it would purchase Nokia’s failed HERE Maps app… can it? More →
