hulu sued for not offering audio service for blind customers

Advocacy groups have sued Hulu in an effort to force the subscription streaming service to provide an audio track that helps people who are blind or visually impaired enjoy TV shows and movies.The federal lawsuit filed in Boston this week asks the court to declare that Hulu’s failure to provide services for the blind violates the Americans with Disabilities Act. The groups say Hulu has refused to do so despite repeated requests from advocates and blind customers.“They want to enjoy Hulu like everyone else in the country,” said Meredith Weaver, an attorney with Disability Rights Advocates, which filed the lawsuit on behalf of the American Council of the Blind, Bay State Council of the Blind and a blind Massachusetts couple.A spokeswoman for the Los Angeles-based Hulu didn’t immediately respond…

politics or policy? behind the dispute over at&t-time warner

AT&T is vowing to fight the U.S. government to save its $85 billion bid for Time Warner, after the Justice Department sued to block the deal on grounds it could hike television bills and hamper innovation.The government’s objections have raised red flags for those who worry that the White House is using the merger-review process to try to hurt Time Warner-owned CNN, with which President Donald Trump has tangled frequently.Here’s a look at what’s behind the deal: (Image: Alex Wong) WHY DOES AT&T WANT TO BUY TIME WARNER?

Gov. Charlie Baker for the first time this week threw his support behind a proposal that would ban motorists in Massachusetts from holding their cellphones while they drive.Baker, a Republican, endorsed the Senate-passed bill while also urging drivers to use caution and avoid distractions while traveling over the Thanksgiving holiday period.“During the holiday season, millions of people will travel across the Commonwealth to be with loved ones, and we are making it a priority to keep the roads safe,” said Baker, in a statement. “We encourage everyone to travel safely and limit dangerous behaviors like distracted or impaired driving.”The bill would make it illegal for motorists to use their cellphones, GPS or other electronic devices except with hands-free technology.

fcc chairman sets out to scrap open internet access rules

The chairman of the Federal Communications Commission set out Tuesday to scrap rules around open internet access, a move that would allow giant cable and telecom companies to throttle broadband speeds and favor their own services if they wish.Ajit Pai followed through on a pledge to try to repeal “net neutrality” regulations enacted under the Obama administration. The current rules treat internet service providers such as Comcast, AT&T and Verizon as if they were utility companies that provide essential services, like electricity. The rules mandate that they give equal access to all online content and apps.Pai said those rules discourage investments that could provide even better and faster online access. Instead, he said new rules would force ISPs to be transparent about their services and management policies, and then…

marvell technology buying chip maker cavium in $6b deal

Marvell Technology has bid about $6 billion for Cavium in a cash-and-stock deal that would create a chip maker to compete with Intel and other giants in the industry.The potential deal extends a long-running consolidation for computer chip producers which are trying to grow so that they can better supply tech leaders like Apple, Google and Samsung.Last week, Qualcomm rejected an unsolicited, $103 billion buyout from Broadcom, saying the bid was too low. Qualcomm last year said it would buy NXP Semiconductors for $38 billion. That deal remains under regulatory review. Avago Technologies purchased Broadcom for $37 billion in 2016.Under the proposed deal announced this week, Cavium shareholders will get $40 per share and 2.1757 Marvell common shares for each Cavium share they own. Cavium Inc. stockholders are…

Volvo Cars said this week it will sell tens of thousands of self-driving cars to Uber, which is expanding to become an operator and owner of its own car fleet.Volvo said in a statement that it would provide the San Francisco-based ride-sharing company with its XC90 premium SUVs complete with autonomous driving technologies, from 2019 until 2021.
