What's Really Wrong with the Healthcare Industry - Vijay Boyapat

I began the talk by asking the students how many of them believed that the current healthcare system in America was flawed; everyone in the class raised their hand. I then asked how many of them believed that the recently passed healthcare legislation, supported by President Obama, was a step in the right direction in reforming America's healthcare system. Once again, everyone raised their hand. While I agreed with the students on the first point, I disagreed that the recently passed legislation was a step in the right direction.

Will Android become the dominant mobile OS? Can Google's Android strategy be compared to Microsoft's tactical offensive against Apple in the late 1980s? Well, a team of financial analysts at Trefis claim to have identified "strong parallels" between Google's strategy in the smartphone market and Microsoft's campaign against Apple which helped Windows become the dominant operating system in the PC market.

Meaning, this is the first time we’re seeing Android 2.1 with HTC’s stunning Sense UI on such a powerful device in the States, so that alone certainly has Verizon Wireless subscribers in a frenzy. Verizon looks to capitalize on the “Droid” craze with the HTC Droid Incredible, but does it live up to its title?
