  • Why 1.2 million people want to work for Comcast [Philadelphia Inquirer] “The Philadelphia company, transforming itself from a utility-type cable-TV distributor into a high-tech and media giant, now competes with Silicon Valley companies for entrepreneurial talent who can develop mobile and online products as part of its ‘TV Everywhere’ initiative – watching TV shows and movies on smartphones, tablets, and laptops. It has a 1,000-engineer unit, called Comcast Labs, with operations in Silicon Valley, Denver, Seattle, Washington and Philadelphia, and employs 40 individuals with doctorates working on, among other projects, next-generation video.”
