FOXBusiness: "Erin Go Bragh! American Companies See Green in Ireland"

. . . How does Ireland attract U.S. businesses? It’s not just the luck of the Irish. For one, the nation has some of the lowest taxes in Europe.

Ireland’s corporate tax rate of 12.5%, compared to a 21% rate in the U.K. Both countries are far below the U.S. federal rate of 35%.

“As long as you don’t bring those earnings back, you get the advantage of low taxes,” Philip Cohen, a professor of legal studies and taxation at Pace University said.

E-Commerce Times: "Samsung Offers Free Milk to All"

E-Commerce Times: "Samsung Offers Free Milk to All"

. . . "Samsung cannot afford to cede content and hardware integration to Apple, and so it has to offer Milk and new content services like it," said Larry Chiagouris, professor of marketing at Pace University.

Should they become ubiquitous, Samsung "will likely find additional ways to monetize the user base and, at a minimum, cross-promote its products and services," Chiagouris told the E-Commerce Times.

There is a risk of failure, but "that's small in comparison to allowing Apple to own the content/hardware integration story," he said.

San Jose Mercury News: "Toddler tech: Is all that YouTube good for them?"

San Jose Mercury News: "Silicon Valley aims for toddler tech"

. . . Parental acceptance invites more children to freely swipe tablet and phone screens in search of shows and games, making the mobile Internet as indispensable for families as television sets once were, said Paul Kurnit, professor of marketing at Pace University and CEO of consulting firm KidShop.

"Kids are a huge market," Kurnit said. "They are the digital natives -- they take to digital devices like fish to water."

They are also one of the last groups not yet captured by the tech industry's ongoing quest to build a bigger global audience, he said.

The Hill: "2016 candidates will grapple with cybersecurity issues"

The Hill: "2016 candidates will grapple with cybersecurity issues"

The 2016 election could prove a turning point for presidential candidates on the issue of email security.

In recent weeks, the early frontrunners from each party — former secretary of State Hillary Clinton (D) and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) — have displayed a lack of awareness of standard email security and privacy procedures.

Although the incidents that enmeshed Clinton and Bush differ in many ways, experts say they both reveal a low prioritization of email security and privacy among officials, even those on the cusp of the White House.

"People just don’t even think about it,” said Darren Hayes, a digital forensics and computer security expert at Pace University. “It’s hard to think of a case where somebody got it right.”

Washington Post: "How the Apple Watch will transform the most successful store strategy in a generation"

Washington Post: "How the Apple Watch will transform the most successful store strategy in a generation"

. . . To find an audience for such a product, Apple will have to do far more than demonstrate that the watch will fit into people’s lives. The company will have to prove that wearable tech can be a status symbol, even for the super-affluent — something no tech company or watchmaker has accomplished before.

“It will sort of depend on whether luxury customers see the watch as being artistic enough or having the craftsmanship,” said Charles Lawry, an assistant professor at Pace University who studies luxury marketing. “I think luxury customers may perceive it as being too geeky.”
