  • Comcast grows in Q4, buys the rest of NBCUniversal and rolls out more new DVRs

    It’s been a busy day for Comcast, so we’ll catch you up on the key points. First, it announced today that it’s buying the 49 percent of NBCUniversal that it didn’t already own from General Electric in a deal worth about $16.7 billion, plus 30 Rockefeller Plaza and CNBC’s New Jersey headquarters for an additional $1.4 billion. In other news, Comcast reported its Q4 earnings, noting that while it still lost around 7,000 cable TV customers in Q4, the total number of video, internet and phone subscribers rose by 503,000 to a total of 51.3 million, up 3 percent from last year.

    In other news, Comcast announced expansions in its rollout of the new X1 DVR platform. Already live in areas of Georgia, New Jersey, Boston, Tennessee, San Francisco and Philadelphia, it’s recently launched in Colorado Springs, CO with more promised in the coming months. It also locked down a deal with Fox that covers local broadcasts, cable TV networks and brings a number of the network’s shows to Xfinity streaming apps and services on other platforms. That deal also reveals that Fox will soon add TV Everywhere authenticated streaming to its Fox Now apps, which Comcast customers will be able to access.

  • 10 reasons you really need to be at Expand this March

    10 reasons you really need to be at Expand this March
    In case you haven’t noticed, we really, really want you at our inaugural Expand extravaganza this March 16-17! We wanted to take a moment and recap the highlights of the show we have planned so you have it all in one place (and because, let’s be real, everyone loves a list):

    1) Even more reasonable ticket prices!

    We want to make sure Expand is as accessible to as many of you as possible so we’re knocking the ticket prices for all of the above back to $50 if you buy them in advance. We’re also instituting day pass pricing for those of you unable to attend the show both days. A $35 ticket gets you into Saturday’s show plus our after-party from 8 to midnight, and only $25 gets you in for Sunday. Parents, kids under 13 get in absolutely free so please bring the family for a day of hands-on technology fun!

    Of course, we know many of you have variable schedules and aren’t sure if you’ll be able to make the show ahead of time. We’ll also be selling tickets at the door for $60 for the full weekend or $40 for just Saturday and $30 for just Sunday. And if you’ve already purchased Expand tickets, check the email you used to register for info about a refund (we won’t leave you hanging!). If you didn’t receive the email or have other questions about your tickets, please hit us up at tickets at engadget dot com and we’ll help you out.

  • Dropbox for Teams adds an admin console for cloud storage overlords

    Dropbox for Teams adds an admin console for cloud storage overlords

    Although Dropbox made a concerted push into pro-grade cloud storage with Dropbox for Teams more than a year ago, it didn’t have a truly centralized place for a team’s overseers to keep tabs on everyone involved. An update today brings in a console to make sense of it all. Along with providing a much simpler at-a-glance view of goings on across an entire group, the console lets administrators tighten access limits from user to user: they can prevent people from using their personal smartphones and tablets with the corporate account, for example, and can ask certain people to sign in with two-factor authentication if there’s more of a risk. The refresh might rain on the parades of those who want to use their Teams accounts for both work and play, but it’s good news for companies that would rather not risk malware or other rude surprises.
