Wireless Carriers, OnLive: Hot Trends

Stocks in this article: STVZUSMAAPL

(New information on the U.S. wireless carriers ratings and the OnLive Viewer application updated in today's Hot Trends article.)

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- "Wireless carriers" is a heavily searched topic today after a Consumer Reports survey showed that AT&T's (T) customer satisfaction was rated the worst among U.S. wireless carriers.

As the second largest wireless network in the U.S., AT&T received an overall score of 60 out of 100, six points below its score a year ago.

It was ranked nine points lower than its nearest-ranked competitor, T-Mobile. U.S. Cellular (USM) was rated the highest with a score of 82, followed by Verizon (VZ) with 74 and Sprint (S) with 72.


"OnLive" is a trending search topic today after the on demand gaming service introduced a mobile cloud gaming application called OnLive Viewer.

The free app lets users watch live game sessions from around the world when connected to Wi-Fi or a 3G network. The app is compatible with Apple (AAPL) and Android devices.

In order to play games on OnLive, users must install its software on either a Mac or PC, or buy the company's $99 TV appliance. Then they can buy daily or monthly subscription passes to play any game in the OnLive library.


"3D TV" is a hot search topic today after Panasonic (PC) struck an exclusive deal with News Corporation's (NWSA) 20th Century Fox to release the Blu-ray disc of Avatar in 3D with its new 3D television sets.
