*******live.besttechie**** - As most of you know I was working on a project this past year, however, I dropped the project over the summer due to lack of funding. Last Thursday, there was an article in the Wall Street Journal which talked about a new site called VideoSurf**** - it's a video search engine. This was MY idea! I couldn't believe it! However, I wanted to take it a step further and include images and audio to create a complete multimedia search engine with social network capabilities so you could share, favorite, create playlists, and organized all your media content in one location. If you would to help me with my idea, feel free to contact me via email. Nonetheless, props to VideoSurf**** for launching - excellent service and I recommend you check it out.

******* We were pleased to read this past weekend in The Wall Street Journal that our friends at Iron Horse Vineyards were cited by Dorothy Gaiter and John Brecher as one of the two best U.S. sparkling wine makers. The story is a guide to buying domestic "Champagne" or sparkling wine to celebrate Tuesday's Inauguration of Barack Obama. Another fan of Iron Horse is Gary Vaynerchuk, the online wine superstar who visited Beet.TV studios some months back for a little wine tasting. Gary calls Iron Horse the "premiere" domestic producer of sparkling wines. The segment begins with a bottle of bubbly exploding and the cork miraculously ricocheting from our 12 foot ceiling and into a wine glass. Iron Horse Vineyards is a former client of my PR firm and over the years the Sterlings have been close friends with our family. Kathy and I have a bottle of Iron Horse in the refrigerator for Tuesday night. Time to celebrate and to toast to good days ahead. -- Andy Plesser, Executive Producer

******* HANOVER, NH -- Through intentional or mistaken breaches, hospitals and insurers are allowing a large amount of private medical data onto P2P networks such as Gnutella and Limewire, according to a report just released by M. Eric Johnson, an expert in cybersecurity and privacy at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth. The paper will be published later this month in Financial Cryptography & Data Security. The study, funded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, found that as much of 5 percent of easily found medical data on P2P networks can be used for medical identify theft. In August on the Tuck campus in Hanover, New Hampshire, I interviewed Professor Johnson on his findings. Some of the findings are referenced today in a big feature on the rise in privacy theft in USA Today. The Wall Street Journal also explores the topic. -- Andy Plesser, Executive Producer Disclaimer: The Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth is public relations client of Plesser Associates.

******* With news of a dramatic write-down and loss at News Corp, one academic says that the company's poor performance and reception on Wall Street can be laid at the feet of founder Rupert Murdoch who operates with "emotional bias." This was most clearly demonstrated by his purchase of Dow Jones, parent of the the Wall Street Journal, says Syd Finkelstein, Professor of Management at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth. He says part of the company's poor stock performance is due to investors' factoring in a "red flag discount to Rupert Murdoch." Finkelstein was in New York today to promote his new book, Think Again, Why Good Leaders Make Bad Decisions, Harvard Press. Earlier today, Finkelstein appeared on Yahoo! Finance Tech Ticker with Henry Blodget and Aaron Task. Here's the video. More analysis on News Corp loss by Peter Kafka at AllThingsD.

The fledgling Zune is like the underdog nobody wants to win. Its parent, the big mean bully Microsoft, has had a regretable past when marketing the device to consumers, but could its next rumored iteration, the Zune HD, actually out do Apple's upcoming iPod touch? Daniel Begun, a HotHardware contributor, thinks Microsoft will have to throw everything they've got at the device, and David Chartier, contributor to MacWorld, thinks they might have a shot with their all-you-can-eat subscription model, if they couple that with a DRM-free music store that's easily accessed. Personally, I think the Zune will have to be Microsoft's first shot at revolutionizing the aging Windows Mobile platform, offering an easy way to develop mobile applications which could then be rolled out to phones in tandem. Speaking of phones, AT&T is rumored to have locked down the iPhone till 2011, according to the Wall Street Journal. AT&T's motives are obvious, being the exclusive carrier of one of the most sought after devices is sure to bring in profits, but is it the best deal for Apple? Surely, if the phone was available on more carriers, we'd have a nation of i-toting enthusiasts on all carriers, rather than on the orange and blue of AT&T. Of course, as David points out, AT&T's biggest strong point is also it's weak point: iPhones use more data than most other phones, which has been known to undersatisfy consumers in iPhone dense areas. Whether or not it's good for everyone, AT&T will do it's damndest to keep the iPhone exclusive for as long as possible, which makes me think competitors like Google's Android will have to step it up if we ever want to loosen AT&T's grasp.

The conviction of Roxana Saberi, a 31-year-old Iranian American journalist, sparks controversy and speculation over relations between the U.S. and Iran. U.S. President Barack Obama said he was ‘gravely concerned’ about the safety of Saberi. While Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad urged the Iranian prosecutor to offer her a full defense during her appeal. Hello, I’m Charlotte Bellis and you’re watching Newsy****. *******www.newsy**** On April 13th a one-day closed-door trial put Roxana Saberi in prison for eight years for espionage. CNN’s Christiane Amanpour compares Saberi’s case to Iran’s past decisions on jailed foreigners and suggests there could be a solution. “She was apparently denied bail but has twenty days to appeal and we also know that there are provisions in the Iranian government’s regulations and rules that permit pardon. Over the last couple of years, there have been high-profile cases in Iran, in which pardon has been forthcoming.” (CNN) The Wall Street Journal looks at one of the signals Iran is sending by jailing the American journalist. “Third possible explanation, I think maybe the most troubling one, is this might be a case that some hardliners inside Iran have specifically tried to create, hoping to create an obstacle to the kind of dialogue with the Iranians that President Obama has suggested.” (The Wall Street Journal) Iran’s IRIB News Agency reports the Iranian Foreign Ministry rejects any link between Saberi’s arrest and the abduction of Iranian diplomats by the American forces in Iraq. The news agency quotes the ministry… “Like all other Iranian nationals, Saberi, too, will have access to all legal apparatus like the right to plead guilty or ask for a revision of the verdict.” (IRIB News) Finally, the BBC brings us perspective from Saberi’s Japanese mother… “It’s hard to believe what we’re facing. I’m a realist. So far, I think I dealt with it, but beyond this point, it’s beyond belief. Even if I’m a realist, I don’t know how to deal with it anymore. And my concern is her health, not the politics.” (BBC) So do you think the case will derail the efforts to rebuild U.S.-Iranian relations?

Hello, I’m Charlotte Bellis and you’re watching Newsy****. *******www.newsy**** The deadly swine flu outbreak has killed as least 100 people in Mexico. Twenty cases have been confirmed in the United States, with other confirmed cases reported in New Zealand, France, Spain and Canada. But it’s not just people who are affected by the outbreak, but economic markets as well. We’re following the economic news as it develops. “In Asia, fears of a global swine flu pandemic prompt investors to cash out and airline and transport stocks are the hardest hit.” (CNBC) “The green shoots in the green economy quickly shriveling as new outbreaks of swine flu puts the economy on edge. New infections in the U.S. and Canada, millions in Mexico afraid to leave their homes.” (CNBC) “On the other side of coin a lot of pharmaceutical and vaccine companies moving on the up side, the likes of Astro Zenica, GlaxoSmithKline and Roche which is the maker of Tamiflu." (MSNBC) Bloomberg reports that stocks around the world have been declining in the wake of the outbreak. It quotes a Royal Bank of Scotland report as saying: “As if we didn’t have enough to contend with…It’s just what we need now, a flu pandemic in the midst of the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression.” (Bloomberg) The Wall Street Journal reports that the U.S. pork industry is working to calm fears that its products are linked to the outbreak. “Although there appears to be no evidence yet tying the flu to human contact with pigs, Russia banned meat imports from Mexico, several U.S. states and nine Latin American nations… The flu threatens to pose a challenge for an industry that has already seen exports decline as the recession has hurt global meat demand.” (The Wall Street Journal) The Washington Post warns that the “outbreak could deepen Mexico’s recession”: “Stung by the credit crunch and weaker demand for its products in the United States and beyond, Mexico is set to suffer a worse downturn than the one in the United States this year… The World Bank yesterday said it would roll out $25 million to Mexico in emergency funds for medicine and equipment…” (The Washington Post) The Independent draws a link between today’s complex, interconnected world financial systems and contagious diseases which now spread faster than before thanks to modern travel. “An overriding risk from both the financial crisis and any pandemic is that it causes a worldwide retreat from globalization, with profound long-term consequences for the world economy.” (The Independent) Stay with Newsy**** for more on this story as it develops….

******* Sunday, May 17, 2009 The Wall Street Journal's web site has jumped to more that 12 million monthly unique visitors in April, an increase of 160 percent over the same period last year, according a Nielsen Online report published today in Editor & Publisher. Wsj.logo We surmise that a big part of the jump has resulted from the complete site redesign which was implemented in September. We assume that the financial crisis has driven considerable traffic. Internal Wall Street Journal Memo Trumpeting the news to the staff on Friday, Alan Deputy Managing Editor of The Wall Street Journal, whose responsibility includes the paper's online operations and Almar Latour, managing editor of the WSJ****, sent around this memo to the WSJ**** staff on the growth: Folks - We'd like to alert you to a significant milestone achieved by WSJ**** in April. Nielsen recorded a 160% increase in visitors to the site from a year earlier, for a record total of 12.4 million. No other major news site is growing at anything remotely close to that pace. The New York Times, for instance, had a decrease in traffic over the same period. The Nielsen numbers have their problems. Our internal metrics suggest an much larger audience. Yet the base is consistent, so the trends are real. We believe there are a number of important reasons for that growth: -Your enthusiasm in reporting, writing and rapidly filing speedies/urgents is making our online news more dynamic than ever. -Our multimedia content is richer than it has ever been - with your articles supplemented by videos, information graphics, slideshows, audio presentations, etc. -We are engaging with readers more deeply than ever before - our comments sections have become venues for a kind of rich and intelligent conversation that is unique on the web. And our real-time columns have pioneered a new form of journalism, at once well-reported, conversational and interactive. -Our business model is working. As we expanded our audience in the last year, we also grew our online subscriber base. We now have more than one million online subscribers. Advertising revenues and subscription revenues have both grown over the year, in spite of a weak economy, and we have plans that will keep them both growing in the future. -We are investing in our products. This week marked the successful launch of the new MarketWatch**** - be sure to check it out. In the past year, we have revamped WSJ****; launched new web sites in Europe, Asia and India; launched a hugely successful new iPhone app (nearly 400,000 downloads already.) And there is much more on the drawing board for the coming year. At the core of all of this is the one thing that has always made the Wall Street Journal great: superb journalism, written and edited with accuracy and integrity by an unmatched team of talented journalists. As long as we have that, we can be sure of success, no matter where the economy or technology may take us. -- Alan & Almar Alan told me late today that part of the growth can be attributed to the success in creating social networks within the WSJ****. In September, the day after the redesign when live, I interviewed Alan. I have reposted the interview today. He explains the approach to social networking on the site. Meanwhile at The New York Times While the Journal is on a tear, Nielsen reports the Times is down 8 percent for the month. A Times spokesperson tells Jen Saba at E&P that the paper is disputing the results with Nielsen and says "We believe their data is in error...."

Friday, May 29, 2009 CARLSBAD, Calif -- Wireless giant Verizon is preparing its network to launch 4G technology in 20 to 30 markets in 2010, the company’s spokesman John Johnson told Beet.TV at the D: All Things Digital conference. 4G is the next-generation of wireless technology that should support better multimedia and video streaming on cell phones. Verizon’s goal is to generate more usage of broadcast TV and personalized video with the 4G rollout, Johnson told us. The carrier began development of the 4G network back in 2007. Verizon has been building up mobile video usage with its VCast service, which delivers video clips from TV networks and others on an on-demand basis and via streaming. “What people want to get is stuff that’s current, hot, topical -- the game you can’t be in front of, the presidential speech, the breaking news,” Johnson said. Verizon’s 4G push comes as mobile video is poised to take off. The iPhone has driven demand for video on cell phones. More than a third of iPhone users watch video on their phones, 10 times the average mobile user. In addition, Cisco has forecast that mobile traffic will grow 66 times by 2013 due largely to video use. Verizon had disclosed it's 4G plans earlier this year at the GSMA World Congress in Barcelona. At the Wall Street Journal's D: All Things Digital, AT&T chief Randall Stephenson told Walt Mossberg how AT&T will be increasing its network speed. Twittering on Verizon FIOS Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal's Amol Sharma reports that Verizon is reading the ability to use Twitter on its FIOS high speed, fiber optic Internet service.
