Goodbye TVii. We hardly used you.

Nintendo is axing the much-hyped-yet-underdeveloped second screen service for its Wii U console, TVii. Before the Wii U’s 2012 launch, the company promised TVii would allow users to organize their live television, DVR-recorded shows and on-demand services like Hulu Plus and Netflix in one interface.

But late Friday, Nintendo announced via its Miiverse social network that TVii would shut down Aug….

On a visit to Seattle last week, a couple of locals asked my opinion of Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, because they couldn’t quite figure him out. This was telling in itself: Nadella has been on the job since February, and Seattle is pretty much a company town. Everyone understood his famously brash predecessor, Steve Ballmer, even if they didn’t like him; no one could yet get a handle on the gnomic new guy

I responded that in seeing him speak a couple of times, I had found Nadella remarkably…

During the final three months of 2013, 98 of Interbrand’s top 100 global brands tweeted at least once and the average company tweeted 12 times per day, according to data from Simply Measured, a social media analytics provider. However, the report also found that 54% of these Interbrand companies…
