Don't write off retailers in the coming mobile battle royal over payments and what not!
The list of the fastest growing mobile apps includes many familiar names, like Uber, Tinder and Nike but one department store's app beat them all.

I think the conventional wisdom has gotten too pessimistic about the Apple watch. 
Analysts, reporters and bloggers see the Apple watch as a flop, but they're underestimating the new gadget's potential.

Boom, FCC adopts net neutrality rules. How long until DC Circuit Court of Appeals strikes them down?
Federal regulators moved forward with a controversial plan to protect openness on the Internet, or net neutrality, by treating the online world more like heavily regulated telecommunications markets.

This bogus Wall Street analyst's chart, about the alleged cost of cord cutting, is wrong on so many levels. First of all, virtually all cord cutters already pay for Internet access. That's not an additional cost if they drop cable TV. Second, none of the many cord cutters I've met or even more folks considering going that route, feel a need to subscribe to so many packages.

I think Google is a lot better positioned than most people seem to think.
Google shares dropped 4% in 2014, but the company is on top of many key advertising trends, setting up a happier outcome for investors in 2015.

Everything's coming up Chromebooks, at least in some households.
As tech shoppers peruse the aisles this holiday season, an increasing number are considering the humble Chromebook.

The new AT&T store in Boston is a model for what the carrier wants to do with all its stores -- sell us more stuff.
As growth in the wireless phone business slows, AT&T is rebooting its vast chain of retail stores to put more emphasis on everything from wearables and tablets to video, connected car and home security services.

NSA spying on everyone, everywhere, all the time? That's our sale pitch.
Some phonemakers are trying to turn Snowden's tales of the latest NSA spying tricks into a sales pitch.

19-year old Andrew Watts post about his use of social networks got tons of attention last week. Danah Boyd, who has been studying teenagers use of technology forever, counters that watts' views are not representative. Who do you agree with?
We must all be careful of over-reading individual stories. Teens’ use of social media is significantly shaped by race, c…

Personally struggling with this one as a school committee member in my town...
News that Google Chromebooks outsold Apple iPads in the U.S. education market shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, but Apple could yet make a come back.

Tech reporter for Yahoo Finance based in Boston
Introduction
I'm a Boston-based reporter for Yahoo Finance covering technology companies and trends, though the opinions expressed here are solely my own. 

I used to blog about gadgets and software and provide my own commentary on tech topics of interest at GravitationalPull.net. It's still hanging around for posterity's sake.

I've been a professional journalist, covering mainly business and technology, for the past 20-plus years. I'm also a suburban dad, avid reader (and Kindle-owner), cyclist and Red Sox fan. And I'm 25% smarter and 112% happier thanks to my wife Whitney Connaughton.
