PowerTalk

Hey Everyone,

This is our latest 2020Talk with James Nolan, EVP of InterDigital's (IDCC) R&D Team. InterDigital is a key patent holder in both 3G WCDMA and 4G LTE Technologies. Jim does a great job of explaining what each of the mobile technologies really is and what the transition means to mobile carriers, device manufacturers not to mention potential pain points along the way.

Good stuff all the way around and very insightful for companies, investors and more.

Give it a listen.

It seems like a day doesn't go by the we don't hear about a company or major instituion getting hacked. Clearly cyber attacks are on the rise and whether your a large company, institution, individual or some other entity - you need to protect yourself. 

Visting with us today to talk about all of this and make sense of it is:

  • Kevin Freeman, author of Secret Weapon: How Economic Terrorism Brought Down the U.S. Stock Market and Why It can Happen Again; and
  • Steven Sprague, President and CEO of Wave Systems Corp. (WAVX)  

Give it a listen.

Hey everyone,

Today we're talking with Nicole Gelinas, the Searle Freedom Trust Fellow at the Manhattan Institute and a contributing editor of City Journal, on Wall Street reform and the Dodd-Frank Bill. In addition to the headline regulatory changes covering capital investment by banks and insurance companies, the Act introduces new regulation of hedge funds and private equity funds, alters the definition of accredited investors, requires reporting by all public companies on CEO to median employee pay ratios and other compensation data, enforces equitable access to credit for consumers, and provides incentives to promote banking among low- and medium-income residents.

Nicole does a great job breaking it all down for us and telling us what it really means - give it a listen!
