    AT&T agrees to buy Time Warner for $85 billion

    By Greg Roumeliotis and Jessica Toonkel NEW YORK (Reuters) - AT&T Inc said on Saturday it agreed to buy Time Warner Inc for $85.4 billion, the boldest move yet by a telecommunications company to acquire content to stream over its high-speed network to attract a growing number of online viewers. The biggest deal in the world this year will, if approved by regulators, give AT&T control of cable TV channels HBO and CNN, film studio Warner Bros and other coveted media assets. It will likely face intense scrutiny by U.S. antitrust regulators worried that AT&T might try to limit distribution of Time Warner material.

    8 Things You Should Never Keep in Your Wallet

    That overstuffed wallet of yours can’t be comfortable to sit on. It’s probably even too clunky to lug around in a purse, too. And with every new bank slip that bulges from the seams, your personal information is getting less and less safe. With just your name and Social Security number, identity thieves can open new credit accounts and make costly purchases in your name. If they can get their hands on (and doctor) a government-issued photo ID of yours, they can do even more damage, such as opening new bank accounts. These days, con artists are even profiting from tax-return fraud and health-care fraud, all with stolen IDs. We talked with consumer-protection advocates to identify the eight things

    Hasta la vista Microsoft: Why IBM's switch from Windows to Macs is one of its greatest decisions

    IBM says that it has saved millions of dollars by getting employees to use Apple Macs rather than Windows PCs, as Windows machines apparently cost three times more in support than Macs. Fletcher Previn, IBM's vice president of workplace as a service, is essentially the head of the conglomerate's IT department, and after years of experience in managing Windows PCs for large corporations, he decided things needed to change. In October 2015, Previn told the Jamf 2015 conference audience that 30,000 IBM employees were now using Macs, and when it came to support for employee computers, while 40% of all Windows users required someone to be sent out to fix the problem in person, which costs a lot more than a support call, in comparison, the same level of assistance was only required by 5% of Mac users. IBM's employees and contractors in North and South America, Europe, China, India, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa are using about 604,000 laptops, consisting of 442,000 Windows PCs, 90,000 Macs and 72,000 Linux PCs, and each of the operating systems have separate customer support and firmware needed.

On Friday, it trimmed its full-year revenue forecast from 2 percent to 4 percent to flat to 2 percent growth. "These top line revenues have to increase.

    Elizabeth Warren takes on Wells Fargo's new management in scathing letter to bank

    The resignation of former CEO John Stumpf from Wells Fargo is "not enough" to assuage lawmakers that the company has purged itself of a culture that encouraged aggressive sales tactics and illegal activity, two senators said Wednesday. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) issued a letter Thursday to Stephen Sanger, who is the new chairman of Wells Fargo’s board of directors. “Given the scope of wrongdoing on his watch, Mr. Stumpf’s resignation is entirely appropriate,” the senators wrote in the letter. “But a resignation alone is not enough to assure proper accountability at Wells Fargo,” it said. “Instead, it raises additional questions.” They also questioned if the bank's

    Salesforce boss: CEOs are afraid to know how much their female employees make

When it comes to the sensitive topic of diversity in tech, Salesforce (CRM) CEO Marc Benioff has some choice words for his counterparts at other companies: Don’t be afraid. At the Grace Hopper Celebration for Women in Computing, an annual conference held this year in Houston, Texas, the 52-year-old chief executive contended one of the largest reasons the gender pay gap remains at many businesses is that their CEOs are in fact too afraid to “push the button” and discover what women employees make compared to their male colleagues.

    Is Gold's Real Value $2,000 an ounce?

    KITCO NEWS - Gold steadies and is set to end the week higher, on track for its first weekly gain in four weeks and one expert sees the cards stacked in the metal's favor. Ken Hoffman of Bloomberg Intelligence released a report this month, which shows the current pressure in gold prices is namely driven by the looming rate hike - but those Fed concerns are just masking long-term positives for the metal. Gold was on track Friday to post its first positive weekly close in three weeks, many analysts suspect that the correction --which started with a 5% drop at the start of the month -- has run its course. December gold futures settled the day at $1,267.70 an ounce, up nearly 1.2% since Monday's open.

    Indonesian nationalism takes a bite out of Apple

    Apple is battling to gain a foothold in Indonesia after nationalistic regulations hit the US tech giant's efforts to compete in the booming emerging market against Samsung and other rivals. The iPhone 6S and 7 are yet to be released in Southeast Asia's largest economy as Apple struggles to fulfil requirements that phone makers must have 20 percent "local content" for 4G handsets sold in the country. South Korea's Samsung has been able to meet the demands and gain a share of the market in Indonesia -- a country of 255 million people, with an army of young consumers -- more than 25 times bigger than Apple.

Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said he would make proposals to his counterpart from OPEC leader Saudi Arabia this weekend on price-supportive measures that could include an oil production freeze. Some traders were skeptical about Russia's commitment after Novak also said the country might produce up to 11 million barrels per day next year to hit a new post-Soviet record.
