Great interview by Brad Stone of SoftBank founder and CEO Masayoshi Son. Couple things stick out:

The wireless industry is a duopoly and the wired broadband is basically a single big player [Comcast]. If those guys set net neutrality rules, everybody has to follow it. They are all slaves of the monopolist or the duopolist.

But I thought Comcast said it was eating its competition to help the consumers!

Also interesting:

I’d say in five years, if I had to bet on one technology company other than Apple and Samsung, it would be Xiaomi.

Can’t say I disagree. Remember, Son is the guy who bet big very early on Alibaba. That stake is now worth $56 billion.
