The Future of Mobility Event

At Qualcomm, we live and breathe mobile technology. We are acutely aware that it has transformed the way we live our lives and connect to the world around us. That is why we were thrilled to learn that TIME was devoting a special issue to wireless technology and bringing together industry experts to further examine the transformative power of mobile.

Spectrum Legislation Now Is a Win-Win-Win-Win

Should spectrum legislation be included in the payroll tax cut extension? Or should it be used as an offset for an extension of unemployment insurance and the so-called “medicare doc fix?” Or maybe it should be enacted as a stand alone bill. Or how about yes to all the above?

Providing Access to the Children of Indian Migrant Workers

India is considered to be one of the key emerging markets in the world. While the rest of the world has concerns about an aging population, the Indian Census Bureau reports that 40 percent of the populace in India is below the age of 18, and by 2015, 55 percent will be under 20. In order to convert this opportunity into a strength, education of young Indians has become an imperative - beginning with pre-school age education.

Assisting in the Prevention and Care of Cardiovascular Disease

Chances are you know someone who has suffered a heart attack or stroke – often, the first warnings of cardiovascular disease (CVD). But did you know that CVDs are the leading cause of death globally? And, that more than 80 percent of these deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries where people with CVDs have less access to effective health care services?

Qualcomm Participates in Bringing News Literacy to Children in Washington, DC

As a country, we see education as an important business. Educated minds are more informed, more discerning and more involved in government and foreign affairs. This is especially true at Qualcomm, a company rooted in education not only by the investments we make in this area but also by the principles that we hold true—after all, several of Qualcomm’s founders began their careers as educators.

Building a New Model of Regional Medical Care

Tomio Hasegawa needs advanced health services to keep his blood pressure under control. The fact that he lives in a remote region of Japan where access to these services is lacking doesn’t prevent him from getting the daily care he needs. That’s because Tomio uses 3G wireless technology to measure his blood pressure at home, send the data in real time to doctors and nurses located hundreds of miles away and get their timely feedback.

3G Provides Opportunities for Entrepreneurs & Students in Indonesia

Since the inception of our pilot project in Palembang, Indonesia, I have witnessed the power that opportunity can have in people’s lives, and more specifically, the influence of wireless connectivity. In May 2010, we completed a project with SRA International, Inc., that offered 1,000 prepaid tuition vouchers (all of which were redeemed) to economically disadvantaged students. The goal of the voucher program was to build awareness and interest in new wireless technology services within middle-mile communities – communities that connect a small town to a larger metropolitan area, where it then interconnects with major Internet carriers, providers and services.

Giving Interns a Voice: POLITICO Summer School

On August 3, I joined over 300 interns at summer school. You may be wondering why anyone would be excited about school in the summer, but POLITICO Summer School was hardly your typical academic program. The event, hosted by POLITICO’s Mike Allen and Emily Schultheis, featured introductory remarks by Qualcomm’s very own Bill Bold, Senior Vice President of Global Government Affairs and a former Congressional intern, followed by a panel of famous former interns: NBC’s Chuck Todd, White House Deputy Communications Director Jen Psaki, and Sergio Rodriguera, chief speechwriter to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor.

Do you believe in giving people second chances? We do. We also value education. That’s why Qualcomm, through our Wireless Reach™ initiative, is collaborating with Renaissance Academy, a private correspondence high school in Japan, on a pioneering project that leverages 3G technologies to help high school dropouts re-engage in learning and earn their diplomas.
