We want spectrum: Verizon said to make a move on Clearwire

CNETAnalysis: Spectrum, that hot carrier commodity, is top of mind for one major U.S. network, so much so that said company reportedly put a good chunk of money where its mouth is recently. The Wall Street Journal , citing people with knowledge of the matter, reported today that Verizon offered as much as $1.5 billion to gobble up spectrum leases from Clearwire. These deals are never cut and dry, but complicating the matter is the fact that Clearwire already agreed to sell itself to Sprint, owner of a 50.8 percent stake in the firm. Yet another wrinkle is part of the fold: Japanese telecom Softbank wants to buy a controlling share in Sprint for $20.1 billion. Dish, meanwhile, just put a $25.5 billion bid up for Sprint , though one that the third-place carrier called “unsolicited.” Head spinner What’s more, Dish itself has an offer out to pick up Clearwire at $3.30 a share, and while Chairman Charles Ergen said Dish hasn’t formally rescinded its offer for Clearwire, it would honor Sprint’s should a deal between the two (Dish and Sprint that is) go through. Head spinning? Ours too. According to the Journal, any lease agreement would give Verizon swaths of spectrum in major U.S. markets. The deal would only give Verizon use of spectrum Clearwire leases, not owns. We shouldn’t see new Verizon service light up anytime soon as a result of a Clearwire deal: The latter is said to be reviewing the carrier’s proposal and will discuss it with “Party J” (Verizon, the WSJ’s sources said) and Sprint. Sprint could put up roadblocks to keep any Verizon deal from going through, but don’t expect that to stop Big Red. The company has been on a tear to pick up spectrum, last year dropping $3.9 billion to nab leases from a number of cable companies.

Dheere Dheere Lyrics Har pal meriyaan yadaan
Yadaan vich ae tun
Dil di gal main dassa
Te dassa fir kinnu (x2)

Teri meri, meri teri ik jind'di
Ik jind'di what to do
Jhoomu main naachu main gaaun ke likhun
Tere liye main kya karun

Dheere dheere se meri zindagi mein aana
Dheere dheere se dil ko churana (churana..)
Tumse pyaar hume hai kitna jaane jaana
Tumse mil kar tumko hai batana

Sham wahi, kaam wahi
Tere bina o sanam
Neend nahi, chain nahi
Tere bina o sanam (x2)

Teri meri, meri teri ik jind'di
Ik jind'di what to do?
Jhoomu main nachu main gaaun ke likhun
Tere liye main kya karun

Ding Dong Bubble Gum Releases Animated Full Song 2015

All hail the Ding Dong Bubblegum Super Cat! The latest superhero in the line of brand-inspired animated characters.
Last year, Hilal aired a 1 minute story, showing the animated Super Cat fighting off the mice aka gooneys, who attempt to steal her Ding Dong bubblegum. The video, meant to be a teaser, cuts off with a ‘To Be Continued’ sign.

Now, we see the rest of the story….
Super Cat is back and she’s kicking mice butt, facing multiple obstacles, using her trusted bells and outsmarting her ‘nephew', the Lion.
All this and she manages to take back what’s rightfully hers… the bubblegum!
The best thing about Ding Dong is that the “Cat” in the ad has always been the same. Talk about consistency.
An extended version of the song has been introduced but still goes along the same lines of “Aik billi moti taazi thi, jo mazay se ding dong khati thi”
All in all, a fun video to watch about the age-old brand that most people consider as part of their childhood.
