at7t sponsored data Sponspored data plans are a good thing survey discovers

Antidote to bill shock for starters says Citrix

Best known for its IT specialism, Citrix has just shared some of the findings from a survey of US smartphone users conducted on their behalf by Wakefield Research . Now the survey covers mobile device etiquette and the mobile user experience. But in particular it covers ‘sponsored data plans’. Strangely, Citrix didn’t really bother to explain what the ‘sponsored’ bit means. However, we suspect the firm helped US mobile network operator – AT&T, with offering its own ‘Sponsored Data’ service. (See here). Anyway, the survey finds that consumers are dead scared of over-spending on their data plans (bill shock). Surprise, surprise. It also found that they’d be receptive to sponsored data plans. Ditto.

sends anti-tech message about Brussels - kroes Brussels court rules Google-backed Uber taxi app illegal

Stiff fines for any cabbies who use it to pick up fares

A Belgium court has delivered another blow to the smartphone taxi app Uber, ruling that any cab drivers using it to pick passengers could face a €10,000 (£8,260) fine each time.

Regulated taxi unions in France and Italy have already bitterly opposed moves to open up the cab business to more competition, launching a series of mass protests to paralyse local traffic.
