Tech Analyst Jeff Kagan on Lenovo Closing in on HP and Dell as PC Sales Weaken

Tech Analyst Jeff Kagan on Lenovo Closing in on HP and Dell as PC Sales Weaken

Jeff KAGAN, Industry Analyst

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 13, 2013

Lenovo continues to do strong business as the computer space in general weakens according to this story from BusinessWeek. It also says how Lenovo is closing in on both HP and Dell.

Tech analyst Jeff Kagan offers comment on this story.

“We have seen the PC industry rapidly change during the last few years. It seems as smartphones and tablet computers are suddenly growing, the traditional desktop and laptop business is slowing. Lenovo however seems to be bucking that trend and holding their own. People have not stopped buying computers, however they are buying fewer of them right now, and they are being more selective of where they buy. Some companies are winning and some are losing. Lenovo is one of the winners right now.” Says Principal analyst Jeff Kagan.

According to this Business Week story it seems Lenovo is the only company still doing well in this segment. It is gaining share as others like HP and Dell are losing share. So this may not be the best time for companies like Hewlett-Packard and Dell to try and reinvent themselves.

“In industry wide first quarter PC shipments, Lenovo seems to have been the sole bright spot. New computer sales continue to slump, and the new Microsoft Windows 8 is simply not connecting with users. That means people are continuing to delay new computer purchases, in addition to buying new tech like tablets.” Says Kagan.

“The time may be right for a company like Lenovo to win market share in this industry. They must keep their eyes on the fast moving ball and that can be a challenge. The industry is re-sizing itself. Yesterday the PC industry had two slices, desktop and notebook. Today the industry has several more slices like Tablets and smartphones, and different, smaller slices in each. Tomorrow even more slices.” According to Kagan.

“It will be interesting to watch Lenovo jump further into the smart phone segment. Will they make an acquisition or will they continue to grow on their own? That is one of the key questions. Acquisitions don’t always work out. Remember when HP acquired Palm a few short years ago? We’ll have to keep our eyes on Lenovo.” Says Kagan.

Project Wild Thing attempts to convert one million children to the benefits of outdoor play

Project Wild Thing attempts to convert one million children to the benefits of outdoor play

Ivy Bond gets close to nature in a still from the Project Wild Thing documentary

(PRWEB UK) 21 September 2012

A nationwide nature marketing campaign has been launched by film producers Green Lions, aiming to persuade one million children to play outdoors and enjoy the benefits of nature.

The UK-wide nature campaign is big, bold and innovative – to be seen on billboards, in maternity units and on screen. Running the campaign is filmmaker David Bond, who has appointed himself Marketing Director for Nature, in an attempt to advertise the benefits of nature to the nation. In the film David Bond takes advice from nature, psychology and marketing specialists, including Simon Middleton, author of Build A Brand In 30 Days and CEO of brand consultancy firm Brand Strategy Guru.

The campaign backed by the National Trust, NHS Sustainable Development Unit, Play England, Play Wales, Playboard NI, Arla, Good For Nothing and Britdoc.

David Bond said: “According to UNICEF we are raising the unhappiest kids in the developed world. Fewer than 10% of children play in wild places, compared with 50% a generation ago, kids roam far less and half of kids have been stopped from climbing trees, and 20% from playing conkers or tag.

“The lure of the indoors – with TV, the internet and computer games – is creating a generation that has no connection with the natural world. My kids are 3 and 5 and they scream if I switch off the TV. I’m now fighting to get my kids back before it’s too late. I’ve spoken to teenagers across the UK many of whom say, ‘Why would I want to go outside – staying indoors is much more fun’. I don’t want to hear that from my children.”

As well as a traditional advertising campaign, PROJECT WILD THING will deliver:

OUT AND ABOUT baby packs for new parents (example attached). After giving birth and alongside the ubiquitous Bounty Pack, mothers will receive a pack to help them think about how they can spend time outside with their baby. Run as a trial study across three major hospitals, this pack will aim to tackle the problem at the source by encouraging parents to help their kids be outdoors right from the start.

The WILDTIME app, available from, is a technological toy that delivers information about where the best fun is really to be found. WILDTIME is designed to help parents and kids who are looking for fun in the outdoors, but are not sure where to find it.

A WILD PLEDGE for people to sign that affirms commitment to the natural world by pledging to match screen time with outdoor time. By gathering signatures, Bond is attempting to lobby government for more natural learning and playtime in schools.

According to David Bond, “I’m blown away by the number of people wanting to join the campaign. Big brands like Apple, Shell and BP all use symbols of nature to advertise their products for a profit. I am advertising nature because it’s good for you and it’s free. My crusade is one small step towards encouraging people to spend less time watching screens, and more time outside.”

The Project Wild Thing campaign challenges parents and children in towns, cities and the countryside across the UK to leave behind the cosy indoors and get outside into the wild. With the help of advertising and marketing experts, Bond’s goal is to persuade one million children of the benefits of Nature – an amazing, free, wonder-product – in just two weeks.

“Spending time outdoors is fun, it’s good for you and it’s free. Given the opportunity, kids love being outdoors. They just need to be given the opportunity. If we don’t act now, a generation of children will miss out on developing a fundamental connection with nature. Without future custodians of the natural world, who will look after our planet 50 years from now?”

Bond’s marketing campaign is being filmed for a documentary. The British feature-length documentary PROJECT WILD THING, is being produced by film producers Green Lions, in conjunction with the BRITDOC Foundation ( It is due to be released nationwide in cinemas in Summer 2013. A major campaign to encourage children to spend more time in nature will accompany the film’s release.

Company Information:

David Bond is available for interview. Stills and video footage from the campaign are also available.

Cigna On ?Prompt Pay Discount? Fraud? “Down From $2 Million/Month To $200 Thousand/Month” For A Hospital Pay

Cigna On “Prompt Pay Discount” Fraud? “Down From $ 2 Million/Month To $ 200 Thousand/Month” For A Hospital Pay

Hanover Park, IL (PRWEB) January 27, 2012 offers webinars to examine the latest federal court development in an ERISA lawsuit between CIGNA and an out-of-network (OON) hospital, with $ 20 million UCR claim by a hospital and a claim for alleged multi-million dollar prompt pay discount fraud (“fee forgiving”) by Cigna. After the court permitted the hospital’s claim to proceed against Cigna on 03/02/2011, Cigna counter sued the Hospital with a fraud claim against the hospital, under a Cigna antifraud “fee forgiving protocol” to reduce the hospital pay “down from $ 2 million/month to $ 200 thousand/month”. While the Court has yet ruled on the merits of all claims by either party, the court documents show that Cigna has been fully implementing the new “fee forgiving protocol” as an antifraud initiative to deny all out-of-network provider claims, including the alleged “prompt pay discount” fraud.

The Court Case Info: North Cypress Medical Center Operating Co., Ltd. et al v. Cigna Healthcare et al, Case 4:09-cv-02556, Filed: 08/11/2009, United States District Court Southern District of Texas Houston Division. offers in-depth analysis and timely Court-Watch on this case, as this “ERISA v Discount Fraud” court battle will likely represent the No. 1 health claim denial nationwide for all OON patient and provider claims for 2012, especially in the deductible seasons. It is impossible that every provider can collect every dollar of deductible and co-insurance from every patient in this economy with recession and unemployment rates, while 77% Insured Americans paid for out-of-network coverage in private sectors.

“Cigna will deny ALL OON Claims “in total” with ‘fee forgiving’, while no provider can collect 100% from every patient 100% of the time, therefore this Court case is for every OON patient and provider in USA,” says Dr. Jin Zhou, President of, a national expert on PPACA and ERISA appeals and compliance.

( will also discuss compliant proactive ERISA discount practices and ERISA / PPACA appeals for all claims denials and delays.

According to the Court documents, on March 2, 2011, the federal court permitted the hospital’s ERISA lawsuit to proceed.

According to the Court Document, on November 17, 2007, CIGNA filed a counter-lawsuit against the hospital for alleged “prompt pay discount” (“fee forgiving”) fraud, among other things, as a part of its defense, in the Court:

“This action arises from an ongoing scheme by NCMC to defraud CIGNA through a practice known as “fee forgiving.”

“NCMC’s so-called business model wrecks these incentives. Instead of collecting the co-insurance from CIGNA plan members that their plans require them to pay, NCMC waives those payments. NCMC tells CIGNA plan members that it will bill them as if they were seeing an in-network provider, eliminating any financial difference to the member between using NCMC and using another provider in CIGNA’s network. On top of this, NCMC offers these plan members over-the-top “hotel-like accommodations,” unlike those in any traditional hospital, including “all private patient suites with upscale room accommodations, including trim, flat screen televisions, private baths, and wireless internet.”

“Defendants deny the allegations of the third sentence of paragraph 30, except admit that one CIGNA employee wrote an email on or around February 18, 2009 that stated in part “spend at North Cypress Medical Center has come down from $ 2 million/month to $ 200 thousand/month so all of our hard work is paying off and the pressure is being felt by the physicians in the area as well as NCMC, which is a good thing;” Defendants respectfully refer the Court to that email.”

On December 14, 2011, the plaintiff hospital filed a motion to dismiss CIGNA counterclaim, asserting ERISA preemption.

On Jan 11, 2012, the defendant Cigna filed defendants’ response in opposition to plaintiffs’ motion to dismiss defendants’ counterclaims.

According to Cigna Website, Cigna will deny all OON claims “in total” with “fee forgiving”, including “prompt pay discount” (

“Notice to Participant regarding “fee forgiving” by providers that do not participate in the CIGNA HealthCare network.

Some non-participating providers may offer to waive the amount that you are obligated to pay when you use your out of network benefits by stating that that they will “accept what insurance pays as payment in full.” This conduct may impact your benefit claim. The amount waived may adversely affect the amount of the benefit under your plan. Claims submitted by providers that engage in fee forgiving may be denied in total or you may be required to pay the non-participating provider and then file a claim for reimbursement.

If a non-participating provider offers to waive or forgive any part its charges, please notify the CIGNA HealthCare Special Investigations Hotline at 1.800.667.7145”
