Biden Win Could Curb Deals, Revive Net Neutrality in FCC Pivot

A victory by Joe Biden in the Nov. 3 election could usher in an abrupt change in the nation’s telecommunications policy, restoring so-called net neutrality regulation and shifting the Republican drive to rein in social media outlets, among other things.

“Democrats are more comfortable with an activist role,” Cowen & Co. analyst Paul Gallant said in an interview.

Biden hasn’t talked much about the FCC during the campaign, but his party’s platform is specific. It calls for restoring net neutrality rules put in place under then-President Barack Obama when Biden served as vice president and taking a harder line on telecommunications mergers.

And the Democratic commissioners on the FCC have already objected to the agency’s steps to strip the social media companies

These are the best pre-Black Friday deals on AirPods right now: AirPods for $129 and AirPods Pro for $219

The new iPhones were unveiled earlier this month, and — for the first time — they don’t include headphones in the box. It’s a good thing, then, that Apple’s AirPod true wireless earbuds have never been more affordable. The current version of the AirPods will cost you $159 (with the standard charging case) or $199 (with the wireless charging case) at the Apple Store, while the AirPods Pro — with active noise cancellation and better sound quality — will set you back $249. 

We’ve seen the day-to-day price on those earbuds inch downward over the last few months, but in the aftermath of  Amazon’s Prime Day sale (which ended on Oct. 14) there are no notable deals on Apple’s family of AirPods — right now, it’s business as usual at Amazon and all the other major retailers.

But that’s far from the end of the story. Black Friday is

Trump says Hunter Biden’s computer which purports to show his dodgy deals is a ‘laptop from hell’

President Trump has compared the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop to that of Anthony Weiner’s computer whose laptop ended up becoming an issue for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in the weeks before the 2016 election.

On Monday, during a campaign rally in Prescott, Arizona, Trump described the son of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, Hunter, as having a ‘laptop from hell’.

Emails on the hard drive purportedly show Joe Biden was involved in deals made overseas by his son.

Trump went on to describe his competitor in the upcoming election as ‘corrupt’.

Bulk Condo Deals Website Launches Due To Pandemic

Richard Swerdlow and Bruce Goldstein 

Richard Swerdlow and Bruce Goldstein

Miami-based Condo.com founder Richard Swerdlow and South Florida developer Bruce Goldstein are partnering to launch an online platform for bulk condo deals, The Real Deal has learned. They’re betting on the growing distress of condo markets across the country and developers’ desire to keep their offers confidential.

Swerdlow and Goldstein are rolling out their nationwide website, BulkCondoDeals.com, so that developers and other sellers can post their bulk deals – defined as more than one condo unit – on the site with detailed financial information. That will include annual cash flow, fixed costs, cap rates, discounts, building information and projected returns.

However, the listings will exclude building names and addresses, so that developers won’t compete with their own existing retail inventory. The venture will act as a broker for the deal, taking commissions ranging from 1 percent to 5 percent, co-founder Swerdlow said.

5G, touted Tuesday on the screen of Apple’s Steve Jobs Theater, is the biggest new feature in the iPhone 12 lineup.


Apple

This week’s arrival of the iPhone 12’s, which features 5G as its marquee addition, brought to the forefront the US carriers that have been rapidly building out these next-generation wireless networks. Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg shared the stage with Apple CEO Tim Cook during the launch, while competitors T-Mobile and AT&T didn’t even warrant a mention. That rivalry is going to heat up as these carriers start rolling out deals and touting their 5G coverage in a radical new wireless world. 

Which could be good for you.
